Spark is for life.....


Friday, November 22, 2013

.... not just a season.

Why are you here?

I know why I'm here. I'm here because I have made bad choices in my life. Yes, some of my problems have been caused by medical issues, and some have been caused by bad information, but ultimately it's ALL my responsibility. I'm to blame - and I'm the only one that can make a difference.

Slowly I'm learning things......

Firstly, I need a rhythm and routine that works. I need to find a combination of food and exercise that fuels the body and assists in replenishing the damage I've already done.

To do this I have to build something that I love. If I don't love it - I won't stick with it. Everything is allowed, but I must practice SELF CONTROL! See, no-one else can practice that for me...... so, I'll set a few small milestones and offer the odd non-food reward.

I'll introduce as much colour into my food as I can. I'll make it look as well as taste interesting, and I'll investigate new ways of preparation and serving to keep open as many options as possible.



Finally, I need to know and remember that there IS NO WAY OUT! I'm stuck with it for as long as it takes. This isn't a hobby - it's for LIFE. I'm not building someone else's dream - THIS IS FOR ME!

Onwards and Upwards, Sparkeroonies. There's only ONE today! Let's make it count.

    "Stuck" isn't quite right:)

    You have the right attitude. Only ourselves can really fix our bodies. HEAL THYSELF WITH FOOD, that was around years ago.
These days it is HEAL thyself with Food , Exercise and HELP from our friends. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Do you remember in the sixties there was a quote 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life'. It's often used so has lost its power but it's very true. I love your arrangement of vegetables. I am trying to eat more colour. I love the dark purple of beetroot, the different reds of tomatoes and red onions , orange peppers and the canvas of the dark green of watercress. So as Henry V would say ' Once more into the breach dear sparkeroonies, onwards and upwards!'

    Your snack tray, or stir-fry vegetables look delicious.
