Speak to Your Body

Body, you are going to get healthy, I say!
Body, you are going to do it the right way!
Body you will not just quit.
Body, you will not just sit.
Body, you are on your way to a healthier you.
Body, you will feel better 'tis true,
Body, listen to me, I say!
Body, I am your boss everyday!
Body, you mus yield to what I tell you,
Body, your own thing you can't just do!
Body, you may be tired and not want to walk.
Body, this is for your own good,'tis true.
Body, the Spark is good for you.
Body, soon you will see what the results are .
Body, You will be glad and able to go far.
Body , you will put healthy food in your tummy.
Body, believe me this is best, I am no dummy.
Body, there are days when it is so so hard, I know.
Body, it will get easier I promise as we go.
Body, no candy today at all.
Body,you will eat fruit and stand proud and tall,
Body, no fast food burgers anymore.
Body, Healthy salads are now at your door.
Body, You may crave some junk you use to eat.
Body, We will not give in and accept defeat.
Body, those greasy foods would be your death, so true.
Body, you want a long life to do all that God asks you to.
Body, you have to learn to just say no.
Body, no matter where you are or where you go.
Body, there are many traps set for your defeat.
Body, many temptations of what you use to eat.
Body. stand strong and tall.
Body, spread God's word and the spark, lest you fall.
Body, God is your strength and your way .
Body, with God and Spark on our team we can make it day to day.

    Actually Annie it does work for me. This is posted on my fridge and I read it outloud every morning to get my body moving! LOL! I tell my body this sometimes when I am tempted to eat something I shouldn't or when I feel like I am too tired to exercise or walk. It works for me...I have to keep my body under control.

    My husband does laugh at me for this! LOL!! But to me it is whatever works and this poem helps me to remind myself what my goal is and what I need to do to get there. emoticon
