It's Been a Long Time...
Wednesday, October 28, 2015
A long time since I posted a blog update here in SparkPeople.
I feel kinda weird posting one now, but here I go….
I am finding myself being drawn back to the beginning. I started SP in 2009 and with the help of SP I was able to lose 50 pounds. That 50 pound loss sparked an amazing journey for me, and I've gone on to do some incredible things I never thought I'd do. But recently I've hit a road block, a plateau in my journey that has really been tough to get through. And I started wondering if MAYBE…coming back to where I began would help give me the push and the support I'm needing to break through and get back on track.
I do well with fitness. I do well with nutrition (most days - I struggle with food addiction but I keep my triggers as far away as I can from me.) But what I am lacking is support and companionship from people in similar areas of their journey that can push me to do better, push me to push harder. I need that motivation that I get from others. The competitive nature in me needs PEOPLE who will push me to keep going, dig deeper, work harder, focus better. So I am hoping by coming back to SP and joining a couple of SparkTeams, growing my support system and network of like minded people - that will give me the Spark I need to get off this plateau and out of this rut. I do not like complacency and there is always something that needs to be improved, so this rut that I am in, this plateau I find myself on…SUCKS! And I need to do something different, change things up, even if that means going back to where I began.
If you see this and can relate… Say Hello! And let's chat. Let's help each other.
