Do one thing...

Monday, July 08, 2013

This is the Motivational saying from my Spark Coach today!
If we could all just do "ONE THING" each day that we are proud of, just think how much we could accomplish!

Sometimes, I think we try to do too much at once when we are trying to change our lifestyle! We jump in with both feet and try to change all of our bad habits in one day! And then we give up because it is too hard and we fail! That's why I love Spark People! here on SP we learn to make small changes each day that will put us on the path to a healthy lifestyle! I believe that setting a long list of goals is just setting yourself up to fail! Isn't that just what most of us have done, again and again? Making one mistake and quitting!?
That won't happen if you take it one step and one day at a time! Today, eat an extra fruit or veggie, tomorrow, drink an extra glass of water, etc. You know the saying " Slow and steady wins the race!" emoticon emoticon

It really works! And it is so motivating to see the small changes start to add up! No failure involved! We are winners!

Today, my one thing is that I add in some extra exercise! This is a big one for me and I am proud! What is your one thing today? Be proud of yourself for every effort that you make on this long journey to health and weight loss! You deserve it!

    You are so right and that is the advice I give people. Don't make drastic changes that you cannot sustain for the long run. This has to be something you can live with for the rest of your life and if you do it the right way, then you can. So what if you had the wrong thing yesterday and went over your calories, today is a new day. You don't undo all the good you have done with one bad day. You are right, small changes add up, slow and steady wins the race. That is why I feel like this time I will lose the weight and keep it off. I am losing about a pound a week - sometimes more, sometimes less and I'm good with that. It will take me over a year or more to get to my goal and that's just fine with me because I have the next 35 or 40 years to stay there! Keep Sparking!

    I like the idea of focusing on just one thing. When we try to change too many things it gets overwhelming and then we stop completely.
