The 12th of Never?

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, November 02, 2013




Today is day 18 of my "on track" streak!

I am challenging myself to make as much progress as possible by New Years Day. I am not focusing on weight. For me, this challenge is about making each day as healthy as I possibly can, by eating right and exercising. Yes I know that some days might not be as good as others. But as long as I don't give up, I will succeed!



This morning when I woke up, I had a moment when I was tempted to just sleep in a little longer instead of going into the living room to do my workout. But then I asked myself..."Would you rather go back to sleep and dream of success? Or would you rather go workout and help make that dream come true?" I think I saw a saying like that on a motivational poster once! I'm glad it stuck with me, because it helped me get out of bed, get dressed and go workout!



Oh sure, I could have gone back to sleep for a while, and then done my workout later in the day. But I know myself! If I procrastinate on something, I often end up putting it off until the 12th of NEVER! And after all, I am calling this month MOVE-ember, so that means I can't miss a workout. No excuses!

(NOTE: There is a big difference between a valid reason and a flimsy excuse.)



As of today, November 2, there are 59 days until New Years day, and I'm so excited to see how much progress I can make if I work hard every day. I'm very blessed to have a dedicated Spark team of friends who are joining me in trying to make as much progress as we can by New Years Day. We are not going to just dream of success....together, we are going to work hard to make that dream a reality!

    So much energy, I love this! I have set similar goals for NYE, so this is definitely inspiring me to keep going. By the way, the 12th of Never was my father's love song for my mother.

    You WILL make those changes through sheer gut determination and it will happen for you. Your striving is inspiring the many many fellow sparkers that follow you.

Everybody who follows you will also do it.

    The 12th of Never eh? LOL. I know where that was for a little while back in September. I got up off my duff mentally and said MOVE YOUR A**! It worked for sure and now I'm back even while trying to get through a few days of insomnia. I'm proud you pulled yourself back up from the lazy as well. Health pays us back in too many ways to list but the sense of accomplishment when we pull ourselves out of the mental gutter is worth the fight I do believe. Its a Rocky moment~ emoticon

    LOL!! I'm very familiar with the 12th of Never!!! These days, however, I have outwitted myself by doing things right away. For example, when it comes to exercising, I must do it in the morning when I'm feeling high in energy. If I wait to later in the day, or evening, I will place exercise on the 12th of Never! Great blog! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I started over on November 1st as well. However, I am aiming to stay on track every day until the end of Jan. I want better numbers when they retest my bloodwork at the end of January!

We can do this!!

    The 12th of never has been with me for many years as well .. lets start using that date for things we don't want !!!
As always you speak right to my lazy butt and have me going .. its so much easier to get moving and be focused when you know there is a team of like minded cyber friends right beside you!!
Happy Sunday .. happy happy regardless of your task .. huge hugs and angel wings coming your way
