I have made a few friends on Spark People who encourage me to keep striving for my goals. We set up short term challenges and keep each other accountable. It feels good to know I am not doing this alone.
I grew a garden this year! Weeding and hoeing are great exercises, and now I am harvesting delicious vegetables! I love eating my fresh food that I worked hard to cultivate.
Sometimes procrastination slows down my goals - so I use this mantra "Every second counts!" It helps me remember to live life NOW. It helps me squash lies like, "Oh this one little bite won't hurt" or "I will start Monday" or "That was so good I should have a second helping". Every second counts!
