Power of Positivity and Spark Recipes for Success

Thursday, September 12, 2013

I am so excited that I want to post two blogs, but instead, I'll just post one with the double title! Honestly, I'm on fire! Not physically, but emotionally super-charged!

First of all, do you realize the power of positivity? Anything squared is mathematically multiplied by the exponent of, or to the power of 2; cubed to the power of 3 - now it's all coming back, right?! Positivity is infinite, multiplying itself exponentially. This is why it's so critical that we stay positive, stay encouraged, and keep on encouraging each other. Most of us know how detrimental it can be to be discouraged. If you're struggling, just start with one positive thing about yourself and try to find one encouraging thing to say to as many people in your day as possible, too! If you can't say anything, at least smile! Even that is contagious and has the power of positivity, too! That positivity will grow, exponentially. Stay away from discouragement as much as possible - it has the opposite power, it will grow exponentially if allowed to, so don't even let it start!

The other thing is I just can't get over how easy it is to track nutrition when using the Spark Recipes! I love it! I pick a recipe or today will be two or three, depending on whether or not the third will cause over-eating, and that will be my food for the day, tracked into my nutrition tracker for the day! I'm cutting out a lot of my daily internet time, but SP will still be a priority each day, for the sake of my health! Other than that, sitting in front of a laptop all day really isn't too healthy, especially for me, someone who doesn't have to!

Keep on Baby Stepping! We can do it!!! :D

    It tends to be so easy to become negative and we have so much to be thankful for and are truly blessed. My set backs and over indulging actually keeps me on track as I'm not limiting and realize what I can or shouldn't do! One day at a time, Sweet Jesus and one step at a time to the goal! The food and fitness tracking are on my to-do list! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My mother always told me to count my blessings first and that there would be no fingers left for counting my problems. Another way to put things in perspective is to look around you at people that have problems that are so much worse than yours.

    I agree about the tracking. It is easy and it keeps me on track. I also try to limit my time to one hour per day on the laptop. I stay positive and I have quit stressing about the scale.
