In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Good for you!! The Spark way is all about creating new, healthy habits - and as you've learned that can't be done overnight!! Over the last couple of years I've changed one or two habits at a time and its totally paid off - now eating 5 (usually more) freggies a day is habit, drinking 8 or more glasses of water is habit, doing exercise every day is habit - you get the picture!! Its made a huge difference in my life doing it this way because its not HARD - its just how I do things now!! It will work for you too!!
