Where am I and where am I going ?

Monday, June 20, 2011

Hello my sparkers! I have been MIA off and on. I hope everyone is doing great and feeling good. I have been busy and trying to get back where I was. It gets so hard sometimes when life gets the best of you. I have been trying har to get my business started, dealing with my job and the economy and family. I know all of us go through life's ups and downs but I am so stuck in a lingering space that I just feeling like screaming at the top of my lungs. I'm still trying to get fit and eat healthy. I run but not as much as I use to and it bothers me. I can't understand why I can't get it back. I have gained a lilttle weight back but not too much but its a weight that I am not comfortable with it not like when I started but not what I like. I tell everyone to stay motivated but I feel like I'm letting my friends down. I need my spark friend to help me through this stagment. I just need some pick me up right now because I need to get back to keeping sprits uplifted so I can continue to help others stay uplifted. I miss you spark friends. I just need some words of encouragment right now.

Your sparkfirend.

    It is so easy to say ...Pick yourself up and dust yourself off and start all over again.....
    but sometimes it IS hard to do. We all have days, or weeks or in my case, even longer, of using a number of excuses why we don't do what we want, and get fit and thin. I am not sure why we do that to ourselves. Scream, yell, jump up and down, whatever it takes, but get back on track because YOU want to do this for YOU. No one else. You CAN do it, you have done it before and now, you will do it again. Just don't beat yourself up.

    emoticon We all go through times of feeling "stuck" and it's hard not to fall into the self-blame pit. You are not alone. Hang in there! None of us are perfect, but any day you do something (no matter how small) to improve your life, you are making progress, even if it feels like you're standing still. Take care!

    I'm a huge fan of letting it all out. If you need to, SCREAM YOUR HEAD OFF. Really. I never thought it would help, but I've done it driving down the road before and couldn't believe how much better I felt. I know it's hard to find time for yourself amidst all of the chaos, but it really is worth it. Even if you can't get out to run, don't forget that stress relief is a very important part of taking care of yourself. If you're a fan of reading, go for it. If you need a bubble bath with candles, start the water. If you would feel better watching a sappy chick-flick, I say get thee to Blockbuster! Remember that you're not letting anyone down. This journey is for yourself and nobody else. You know what it takes to relieve stress, lose weight and make yourself happy. When you and your body are completely ready, you'll get back on track and be better than ever. You're fabulous, I can tell, and I have all the faith that you'll succeed at everything you've got going for you. emoticon

    I agree, scream!!! emoticon Sounds to me you need some me time. Maybe if you can, take 10, 15 minutes to start and go for a walk, do jumping jacks or just meditate!! If you get a little me time, it may help! I'm here for you my friend, I'm here, cheering you on!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
