How many steps does it take to get there?
Sunday, January 26, 2014
First let me say thank you to all the cheerleaders that encouraged me yesterday and all the days prior. It makes me smile when I look at my blog and see happy thoughts and sincere help coming my way. Second, I must have been extremely tired when I wrote that post (I was) because there are so many grammatical and typo errors it made me laugh when I reread it today.
Today was a little bit of a bummer. I carried my car to the dealership....the only one is 1 hour away from my home....because it was barely running. The bad news is it will cost $1950 to fix it which of course I don't have. The somewhat good news is that it made it home before it died. Will have to be creative to get this worked out.
So while I was sitting at the dealership I had a lot of time to think...6 1/2 hours to be exact. What did I think about when I wasn't worrying about my car? My weight loss and how I am going to achieve it. Obviously, Spark People will play a major role but what else? I went through my food tracker and looked at what I had eaten this week and was really surprised because most of choices were healthy and tasty. I purchased the Spark Activity Tracker and really like it. It did give me a real shock though because it seems I am walking less than 2000 steps per day once I put it on when I start my day. I also only averaged 6 glasses of water a day this week. So what does all this mean?
It means I have work to do but it also means that I have a great start. I am motivated and excited about losing weight and that is truly a first for me. This is going to be a long journey for me and I have to decided to think of each pound I lose as one step closer to my best me. So in the future you may see me say something like, "I traveled 2 steps this week". This will mean I have lost 2 lbs. I know this may seem ridiculous or trivial to some but it creates a visual in my mind that is both optimistic and motivating.
Sorry for the long post but I just had a lot I needed to say tonight. Be Healthy and Happy all!
