Starting Weight 2014 and Weekend Food Blog

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

I stumbled, I fell and now I’m finally back up on my own two feet. Déjà vu… I can’t count how many times I’ve fallen and miss-stepped and gained but the point is that I never give up and I always come back. I was really nervous this time that I wouldn’t return because no matter how many starts I had or how I almost made it back up, I kept falling and failing and not being able to move forward. It was discouraging but I kept at it until I got back to the path that I know always helps me succeed. A path that includes my Sparkpeeps, my blogs, tracking my food, hitting the gym, drinking my water, getting enough sleep and most importantly…believing in myself and knowing that I can do this and I can succeed.

It’s no longer maybe I can do this…It’s now I can do this, I will do this, watch me do this!!!!
