Today's Motivational Quote.....

One may miss the mark by aiming too high as too low.

Okay....So I figured I would look up an inspirational quote each day and see how it applies to me. I've been feeling a little aimless lately. I get into these moods every once in a while. Soul searching, I suppose.

I got the book "The Spark" from the library since I am having trouble getting back on track and I think the quote at the beginning of my blog can explain some of my problems. I set my goal for my final weight and that's so far off that it makes me think I can procrastinate about changing the way I eat (aiming too high). Now I've added a measureable intermediate goal of getting to my BMI below 30 (about 20 lbs from here) by November 26th. I am still working on determining a good short term goal. Any ideas? emoticon

Have a sparky day! emoticon

    I started looking at the total weight I wanted to lose and had a hard time sticking to things as it looked like such a mountain. So, I just broke it down into segments and lost some weight then stopped. I have been holding at this weight since the spring. Now I think I will start again and go for my next goal.

    The most interesting thing I have been reading lately is that this may be a good thing. My body would rebel had I lost all the weight I wanted to lose and I probably would have put it back on, just like the times before. I only have my short term experience to speak to, but there may be something to it.

    Change something small for 30 days, then add another small change 30 later etc.

    Examples:

    Park further away and walk more
    Increase you water intake
    Buy ground turkey instead of ground beef
