10. Eating chicken can be just as satisfying as eating a hamburger. The taste of food only lasts for the meal and then maybe a few hours later until it's time to eat again. Why waste calories if the satisfaction is so limited?
11. Jogging 3.1 miles is challenging, but not impossible. Maybe slowly, maybe with a small break along the way, but I can do it. Setting a goal and sticking to it is more satisfying than a hot fudge sundae!
I could probably go on with all the lessons I've learned over the past year, but that's enough for now. My thanks to SparkPeople are twofold. One, for providing me the tools and resources that aid me on my journey. And two, for teaching me how to become a better me, both physically and emotionally. I'd like to say I could have done it without SparkPeople, but I can't. While this year may have not been my best year of all time, it's definitely in my top five. And now, I can't wait to see what the future will bring!
