Same Year…New Week…Different Day…Positive Attitude

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

So over the previous 2 to 3 weeks my exercising and eating habits changed due to lack of motivation and focusing on other avenues in my life. Well I am back at it…I have finally got my head in the mental state I need to keep moving forward with my goals. The eating is on point, water intake is getting there, the exercising is getting back on track (still need some improvement), the scale is moving, and I feel good about myself internally and externally.

I realize that I can’t expect others and society to except/respect me if I can’t except/respect myself whole heartedly. This statement does not having anything to do with myself esteem because I have not ever really had low self-esteem issues I have always just made it seem as what I was doing to myself physically and mentally was ok because I was beautiful no matter what. Yes, this is a good attitude to have but not when it comes at the cost of the scale tipping 305 lbs, or the doctor telling stating that you have high cholesterol and diabetes. So this leaded to my journey of a healthier and happier me. Overtime I have managed to loss a total of 58.8 lbs (38.8 lbs w/ Sparks) over a little of a years time and manage to keep moving forward with some obstacle in my path.

Now with that little intermission of where and how my journey started I woke up last weekend with a renewed spirit stating that I will only speak positive outcomes into existence and that I am the only one (w/ our father above) that will determine my destiny and mood.

This week’s recap:

1. Managed to drink 72 – 100oz of water daily (got to keep this up)
2. Exercise throughout the day not including my nightly workout.
3. Cooked a healthy dinner (not eating out yet)
4. Supported and motivated my friends on Spark’s as they returned the same support and motivation (don’t know what I would do without my Spark’s friends)
5. Woke-up with a positive attitude (even when I felt I was just to tired and didn’t want to be bothered)

….but the most important of them all FOCUSING on ME first

    Your back up and moving! Keep up the good work!

    You are so right about having to focus on self and letting some other things GO! It can be people, things and is often habits and unnecessary stresses. We all have to do the BEST WE CAN DO, and that has to be no less than what we would do for someone else.

    Peace & emoticon

    You're going in the right direction! Your blog was a good reminder to me that most of this battle takes place in my mind. My thoughts control my actions, and so often, I go into the day defeated because I expect to be defeated. But your blog caught my attention and I'm going to try your way. Thanks for sharing this. emoticon

    Sounds great. It's important to "speak positive outcomes into existance" You've given me an idea. I will place in a special place a reminder to "speak positve THOUGHTS into existance". and "speak positive IDEAS into existance" also. And remember that I am blessed and making progress. Congratulations on your weight loss and other goals.
