Day 635 - M

Thursday, September 19, 2013

"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space."

Johnny Cash


This really is good advice. We can't beat ourselves up when make a royal mistake. We need to learn from it, build on it and move on. I've made so many weight loss/maintenance mistakes. Many of the mistakes in the past were from lack of good info and not understanding how this works or making it work to my advantage. But with SP, all of that has changed. I've still had glitches along the way, but at least with SP all of the educational info is in place. It's pretty easy to learn all of the ins & outs of it and you don't have to dig very deep. That good info is everywhere, all over this site. And, best of all, the Sparkies are all there to cheer each other on!!


We had torrential rains today, complete with thunder & lightning. That was enough to cancel all bus evacuation drills until Monday. It did clear up in the afternoon, but more rain is scheduled for tomorrow. We did need it though.

Had a good day after the heavy downpours stopped. Had to do the cardio walking inside for the most part, but that's OK - I resolved to never make excuses - just to get it done. My whole life is so much better for it!!

Mileage: 9.28 miles

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope your Thursday was real good!! emoticon

    We seem to go back and forth between drought and floods. Wish we could just have a happy medium, and no I don't mean a drunk psychic. emoticon

    I am hanging on to your words today. I have failed so many times and now that I've reached a little bitty success, I'm scared to death that I'll go right back to the point where I was starting from. I really want to not look back, pretend I was never there and "start all over" like this is my first day. So...building on failure...gotta keep Sparkin'!! Thanks for posting! Have a great day and be blessed and safe in the pending storms headed our way!
