I have my start page on my computer set to spark people, so the first thing I see in the morning is this site. Then I go to the sparkpoints and NO MATTER HOW I DID THE DAY BEFORE I go through each step and complete it. It educates me and motivates me to continue taking baby steps that I know will make a difference. I have time because I've made TAKING CARE OF ME my second job - and I'm worth it!
I have set my home page on all my computers to sparkpeople! So its the first thing I see in the morning when I log in at work, AND the first thing I see when I log in at home in the evenings. Great way to remind me of my focus - being fit and healthy!
This may sound strange, but I do a lot of self-talk to help me come to good decisions about my fitness. So lately I've found myself doing the same thing with my money. An example is that this morning, I wanted to justify going out to breakfast (a bad habit!), so I immediately challenged myself to think about the AMOUNT that it costs to go out versus the amount I would save if I cooked. I have the time, I have the food already here, and actually - I prefer my own cooking!
I have always loved all others so easily, but not myself. I find that when I give myself permission to LOVE ME (no, it's NOT selfish or conceited!), then I do better at taking care of me. I don't have to BE THERE ALREADY (at goal weight) to be loveable & beautiful. I'm already those things and more!
