There is a sensible way to approach health!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

I tend to be an all or nothing person and when I start something I jump in with both feet. I have found this works for the short duration I can maintain it until burnout occurs. So, I am committing on Jan 1, 2013 to approach this thing in a logical way, not a frantic pace that does not last. Reading SP blogs and articles are so good for my motivation, if I check in with SP every day, I do better. Chris believes in streaks, and I have read it works well by several people who have done well, so I will see how long I can have a healthy streak, good competition against myself. I also find writing in my journal whether it be by hand or on the computer really puts me in touch with where I really am, not where I want to be. It is lkie a reality check for me, so this is my second goal. I need to consistently work on these goals and I feel the rest will fall in place. At a frantic pace, there can't be consistency, you get too tired to continue. The slow and steady way is my new motto. SP is the best thing I have ran across, and it is free. My body is a gift and I need to respect it. This is my year, 2013 here I come with determination and a good attitude.

    I totally agree with you on the all or nothing vs slow and steady! I am trying to make SP a daily habit. Reading and refocusing each day seems to be helping me so far. I truly think you are on the right path!

    You are so right. I also find re-reading my old blogs helps me know where I am compared to where I was. Keep Sparking
