I made it through work today without snacking!
You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find that you get what you need. -- Stones, claro
Great plan! You are doing it!
"Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.” orman Vincent Peale
“Stop living life for what’s around the corner and start enjoying the walk down the street.” Grant L. Miller
“Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.” Marie Curie
I deserve a treat because I'm an optimist trying to keep my chin up during a challenging time in my life. I'm a New Year's resolutioner who joined Spark in preparation for 2011 - since then I have lost 30.8 pounds, competed in my first 5k, and been named a Spark Motivator. Within the past week, my world has been turned upside down: unexpected legal trouble and debt, a baby niece who had open heart surgery, I put notice in at my job - and then I found out that I'm expecting. Trying to face the challenges ahead with my new Spark mentality - focusing on two things every week that I can tackle and accomplish, instead of looking at the big picture and getting overwhelmed.
I plan to treat myself by enjoying simple rewards, forcing myself to slow down and enjoy my "alone time" and time with my husband. I would love to take an overnight trip to a bed and breakfast in Cape May, NJ, and lollygag around the town - read a book on the beach, take a carriage ride, and enjoy a nice dinner.
