ONWARD AND UPWARD ~ Plateauing a little on that upward swing

Saturday, May 11, 2013

It's been a busy week with acute pain and I'm trying to follow the doctor's orders, so that means the exercise gets cut back to light stretching. On the up-swing, I've not been retiring to bed and I am continuing to move around. Sparkpeople has been instrumental in this positive mode.

Tracking my stress level in Stress Busters is helping me discover where my stressors are. I am reminded of something I've heard termed as The Serenity Prayer where it states changing the things I can change and accepting those things I can't change. The latter is a difficult challenge for me. I need some work in that area. Oh gee! I'm not perfect. lol I lost at perfectionism a long ways back. I have finally learned that to be an impossible goal, but one to make strides towards because I can always attempt to grow and do better. Sparkpeople is teaching me that too.

I am learning the goal in this journey to a healthier me is to do it one step at a time, but never quit. Any movement is better than no movement so this body continues to be a body in motion no matter how little and slow. Go with the flow Glo!

Continuing to Spark!

    Yep any movement is better than standing still. Perfection is a fantasy and a bad one at that! This journey is all about movement, you take two steps forward then maybe one back but then you take two more steps forward, and step by step you achieve your goals, both the little ones short term you set and that large goal to reach a point where you can do things in a healthy way again, with some weight loss thrown in for good measure. Be patient and follow the Drs advice. There will come a time you are ready to work at it again. emoticon Be Well!
