What do you learn from reading others' blog posts?

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

When I got up early today I set aside 30 minutes to spend on Spark People - log in, huddle, read a few posts, etc. and here I am almost 45 minutes later!

It's been a great 45 minutes. I read blogs about the importance of eating to live and nourish our bodies and not live to eat. I've read about staying away from the verb "try" which can build in an excuse to fail and undermine success. A better word is to persevere daily. I've also read about people's success in losing weight and how they now handle stress with exercise and not food -- a great habit to imitate!

All in all it's been a great read and very motivational. And just what I needed for today's journey to a healthier me.

What did you learn today from the blog posts you've read here on Spark People?

(I am going to go and exercise right now -- too much sitting and reading can lead to an excuse not to exercise!)

    I always learn something that motivates or inspires me or helps me get further along on my journey. Like today, I learned to use the word "persevere" instead of "try." I like it!
