A Positive Blog to offset a Negative Blog....

Monday, January 28, 2013

Wow, this may be more difficult. But maybe not.
Working through Spark Coach has led me to this blog. The suggestion is to use my blog to create a positive atmosphere about exercise and healthy eating rather than using the blog to vent. here goes. Yes, eating healthy and exercising has not been easy for me. So often throughout the day I realize how many times I'm motivated to put something in my mouth instead of working through the puzzle of what is going on in my head. I'm an accountant and it's important to have that tidy row of sums that added up correctly. So why is it that my personal choices do not logically tie to my eating? There is no tidy column of numbers there with an accurate answer below with a double underline that signifies that all is in balance. My healthy choices are numbers scattered across a page hither and yon with no rhyme or reason. That looks so scary to me. It's chaos, no control, no harmony, no balance. Interesting.
To any who read this the obvious answer is to track each number wherever it is and bring it into the tidy column. I believe as I track each number down and bring it into focus I will find my answer to the choas. Right now it looks like I'm out of control because I'm afraid to confront my eating choices and see who is behind the door, behind the untidy column waiting to emerge. Don't you think? emoticon

    It's always scary to see what's behind the door,but most of the time, if we would take the time to look, it was scarier in our head than in real life!

    Being positive is the way to go.

    When I finally decided I was going to start blogging on SP I chose to write positive messages to myself that I could look back on. Sometimes it take me awhile to figure out what I want to post but I made a promise to myself that I would make a positive blog post every day and be positive in my SP activity.

    It seems to me that I'm surrounded by negativity and it can be a trigger for me to emotionally overeat. And then I would have to ask myself why I was overeating and stuffing down my feelings inside, punishing myself for something I didn't do?

    As I work in earnest to sync up my body and my head - I choose to feed my head positive messages instead of negative ones; to dwell on the positive instead of negative - because it is within my control.

    Positive attracts positive!

    I'm always pleased when I see another Sparker who chooses the positive result.

    You can do it!
