Ready for Another Thought?

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

expialidocious - even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious! If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious,

So I don't know why that song came "poppin" into my head but it has me thinking, wouldn't it wonderful to have some magic powers. Ooohhhh, I don't mean like, snap my fingers and POOF, the weight is gone. Okay, that would be so totally awesome, dude! But, I mean like clap my hands and my house is clean, the laundry is finished, folded, and put away, and the dishes are washed, dried, and in the cupboards. S I G H! I wish Mary Poppins would visit!

Okay, that's NEVER gonna happen so moving on now. . .

I did my exercises again this morning. My very short term goal is to workout every day for the month of March so that by the time the anniversary party comes, I'll have some definite results.
You wanna know my secret motivation?

Have you ever eaten in front of a mirror? Okay, I don't wanna know if you were naked but I have eaten in front of a mirror (and I'm NOT telling if I had clothes on!) and it's not the most pleasant site. Seriously! Your cheeks puff out, your face goes through all sorts of contortions, and you look ridiculous. Hmmmm, the naked part, well, use your own imagination! It's no wonder people often look elsewhere while meals are being enjoyed.

Have I gone completely bonkers? Nah. I'm trying very hard to accept the things I cannot change and blah, blah, know the rest.

Each one of us has problems; whether it's financial, health, family or a combination of all three. These blogs allow us to vent a little, to share humor, to open up a little or a lot. As much as I enjoy crocheting or reading or playing the piano, I really enjoy sitting down and letting my fingers do the talking. And when you, my dear Sparklers, respond with a kind word, or encouragement, or share in my sadness or happiness, it makes my weight loss journey all the more better. Believe it or not, you all hold me accountable! I have a true sense of responsibility not only to myself but also to you. Your continued support, whether I'm venting, stating facts, or being silly makes me come back day after day. I've been truly blessed to have found this site, and that you all have found me!

So this is for you all. . .

    Mary Poppins...I haven't thought about that movie in years. She could make anything fun. You are right my spark friends keep me accountable and it is nice to know I am not alone on this journey.

    great blog! I have thought if you had to eat naked in front of mirror I would loose weight too. One time I went to the bathroom at an agency that had a mirror directly across from the toilet- what a sight that was. I said if I had to face that several times a day I wouldn't eat either.
    Daily exercise is a great plan- I know it has helped me a lot already! emoticon emoticon

    Eating in front of a mirror might be a good experiment with or without clothing!
