August 19th! emoticon WoW! How did we get here so fast and why do I feel like I wasted my summer? emoticon Well, because I did not eat well and I did not workout, hence I did not lose weight and I feel like a beached whale. emoticon

I went to bed at 12:30am last night and had trouble falling asleep. For some reason I woke up around 8am and decided to come onto SparkPeople for some motivation to get my day going. Then I headed over to Facebook to look for some of those motivational pictures with quotes. Here is the one that jumped out at me:

"The courage to continue" is totally what I need right now. I need to forget about how much time I have let slip away this year. I need to stop dwelling on what I didn't do and focus on what I must do now in order to get my body where I want it to be. It is time to GO BACK TO WORK! And once I am in the midst of working and climbing the mountain to reach my goals, I need to remember that the work will never be totally over. I must not STOP the habits I create for myself, but rather adopt them, continue them and not look back or return to my old habits. That is what gets me in trouble every time.

Now, the courage to start, the struggle to continue, and the hopes of reaching where I want to be are in front of me and I want to get there and stay there this time! Anyone else with me on this? ( I hope so!) emoticon

    I love "the courage to continue" I'm glad you are focusing on today and the days to come rather than the days past. I'm with you on this journey and together we will get there!
