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!
