Well here I go again

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Wow I am s social being and I love fellowshipping with family and friends. There are church suppers, family gatherings, lunches with friends, business trips with hubby and family reunions on both sides. This year has been a whirlwind of activity. I have made resolution after resolution only to 'forget' when faced with a temptings spread of goodies. It's like my mind goes on vacation. Now I am reaping the consequences of all this. My breadth is winded, exercise leaves me exhausted, my clothes are tighter, It wasn't that long ago when I was enjoying being able to go to Costco and not have to sit down to catch my breadth 0r give my hurting knees a rest. So it's time for a serious reality check. Is that extra piece of cheesecake really better than my health. Is that bear claw at Panera Bread better than feeling energetic. Do I want my family to have the burden of caring for a sick grandma who could have lived a healthy lifestyle. Yikes I believe God has lots planned for me yet how can I do all I am created to do if I am struggling with just walking across the house to put something away. Hmmmm I choose to stay on this journey to goal. I am choosing to fix my eyes on the vision of a healthy body mind and spirit. So glad to be part of Spark People.

    Take one day at a time and plan ahead. You can do it. All of us have started over many times. I found that the more I stayed away from sugar, the better I was.

    emoticon We all need that Reality Check, Occasionally. Sometimes on a Daily Basis!
    It isn't Easy to choose the Healthy Choices every time, but at least we are NOT In This Alone. We have God's help, and our Spark Friends walking the path with us.

    Great blog. I too need to have these thoughts when it comes to those tempting tastes of things we really don't need. They are not a need they are a want. I also forget when I look at them as you do. Hope in a blog here in front of me to penetrate that area of forgetfulness when my eyes go onto these things and a little light of memory respond in my mind saying even SHOUTING SANDY REMEMBER THAT BLOG! This may help us not to forget, not to forget not to forget emoticon
