The Life I Want To Live - Chapter 4

Monday, June 08, 2015

While commenting on a Sparkfriend's blog today (Thanks, Barb, for the thought-provoking blog), it occurred to me that I want to live in a comfortable body.

It seems such an obvious thing to say, but guess what? I need nudges, reminders, and Sparkfriends in order to remember that in the active part of my mind.

I want to live in a comfortable body.

I want to tie my shoes without having to do that weird pregnant-lady spread (which was ok when I was preggers, not so much now).

I want to sit in an airplane seat and easily bend over the once-every-20-minutes required by my son to get another distraction/food/tissue/headph
ones from our under-seat carry-on bags.

(um, I've tried to edit this blog 3x, and Sparkpeople interface keeps splitting the word "headphones" even when I put in a hyphen - sorry for the weirdness)

I want to be able to dry my denim in the dryer again. The pants are kinda rough and crispy when air dried but right now it's a bit snug if I throw them in the dryer.

I could go on and on here, but you get the gist. This is part of the life I want to live. I just want to choose good snacks, the right amount, and move enough to feel comfortable in my body.

I really, truly want this. And yes, I want reminders on blogs, in chats, on walls, in goodies, and, maybe tattooed on my inner eyelids (ok, maybe not the last one). It's why I Spark!

    I love this post and it was so in line with what I was thinking today. It's not about attaining something we've never had, but getting back to a place where we felt good and comfortable and weight/eating/sweating wasn't always at the forefront of our brains!!

    That is why so many of us Spark vs. facing this on our own, WE NEED EACH OTHER so we too can have that comfortable life in that comfortable body!!
