Well, it is the weekend, Huzzah!
I received my Spark People Blue cup and my WooHoo teeshirt! Woohoo! *LOL* I ordered the shirt in my current size and decided it is time I have a "Before" pic taken. My plan is to buy a new shirt ever few sizes to track my progress and have a pic taken. Just need to find someone to take the pic. I LOVE my blue SP cup! I may get one in every color like MostMom1. I have even taken to sing "Spark People Cup!"
I woke up in the best mood this morning! Lessons are sinking in and I continue to learn new ones. My favorite one thus far I've learned is from Lily on this week's edition of Spark Radio. Lily and Karen were talking about how hard it is to get back into the positive thought patterns after over indulging. We all know that it's so easy to spiral out of control once a negative thought and feeling show up. Now, for me, this is not only goes for food, but for everything mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical. Which is why it's so hard at times to come out of the downward spiral. Negativity propagates insanely quick.
Lily discussed something she tells her clients when they stumble and start to spiral down. She tells them to do 1 tiny act of power, like 50 sit ups or going for a walk, just something positive!
As I am dealing with so many things in my life which all seem to bear down on me, I took Lily's advice. I normally do my laundry on Sunday, in a routine rut don't ya know. Anyway, I felt so good last night after work, I felt I needed to do something productive, so I did my laundry. It made me giddy with delight that it is done. I know it sounds silly, but that empowered me! So much so, that I had a bowl of cheerios with raspberries for dinner. Yes, that was an act of power as well. Friday nights I usually get fast food for dinner. So I kept my calories (and everything ) in range! Everything is interconnected; the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. That's what I love about SP. It is not just about weight and fitness, it's about life and how you choose to live it!
It is the little things, my friends! Tiny acts of POWER! Thank you Lily for that sublime advice.
Today my act of power is to empty 3 boxes in my living room and dispose of everything I don't need, want, or doesn't serve/inspire me any more. Who knows, perhaps I'll do more?!
What will be your tiny act of power today?
Much love and bright blessings!
