Rocktober; Part Two


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, October 29, 2013




Today is day 14 of my streak! Woohoo, two whole weeks of being on track!

I'm feeling good and so proud of myself for keeping this streak going. I'm just taking it one day at a time and doing my best. Progress, not perfection, all the way!

When October started, I had such high hopes. I was going to "ROCK-tober" and make a lot of progress. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. I really got way off track for a while there, and literally felt the weight coming back on. It was depressing and I almost let it defeat me, to be honest.



Thanks to the support of my Spark friends, though, I was able to pick myself up and get back on track again. Thank you Spark friends, you guys are awesome! October might not have started out so good for me, but I sure am ending it on a high note because of your encouragement and support!



So, did I ROCK-tober? I say that I did, because even though I got off to a bad start, I didn't give up..and I'm making progress!

If October hasn't been such a great month for you, hang in there! Don't throw in the towel. Choose to give yourself a fresh start right now, and start making the progress you deserve. Remember, you are always worth the effort.

    We all have our times when it gets really hard and we want to quit - but the fact that you pushed through and didn't speaks to your strength, dedication and commitment to the cause. Great job!

Congrats on the 14-day streak too! emoticon

November is going to be great!

    Great blog, as usual. Your first quote about TOUGH TIMES NEVER LAST is the title to a really powerful book written by the Rev. Schuller several years ago. If you haven't read it, I strongly suggest that you do so. Not sure if its still in print, The ISBN # is 0-8407-5287-3

I re-read this book often.

    We are only human and are faced with struggles from time to time. The important thing to remember is YOU never gave up or threw in the towel. Kudos to you for that! You keep on ROCKING!!! emoticon
