Blogapalooza Week

Sunday, October 06, 2013

I'm really glad that reading and commenting on other's blogs was part of the challenge this week. My initial gung-ho spirit had begun to fade a bit towards the end of this week. But I found so much motivation reading everyone's blogs.

Seeing how other people are sticking with it, overcoming major obstacles, doing great, or doing crappy but with a great attitude has totally made me feel like I can do it too. Also commenting on blogs about feeling discouraged was really encouraging to me too, because for one thing it reminded me that everyone has crappy times, and for another it reminded me of all the great advice and support I've already received that I could then impart on that person. So that knowledge was right at my fingertips when I started to feel crappy too. And I would say to myself, I just told someone that it's not all about the scale, to focus on small victories and take it one step at a time - I should do that too!

    I agree, sometimes it's nice to be able to see other people are struggling and over coming those things. It also helps gives us new fresh ideas I think. Ways that maybe we didn't think about on how to jump start us again.

    Very nicely put :) I'm also glad commenting on blogs was a part of the challenge this week. I feel like it's a good habit to keep even beyond the challenge for the sake of encouraging each other.
