Sunday Sparkpoetry -- get in your groove

Sunday, January 24, 2016

Sit down today, and write a commitment to you
Maybe eat clean, every bite, lick and chew
Take out processed foods, they're a terrible stew
And cut out most sugar, you'll be glad that you do

Make a list, of why you want to lose weight
Make it honest, and really play this one straight
Put it somewhere handy, take your own bait
and you'll be on your way, no need to tempt fate

If you are really committed to make this one stick
To know in your head that this time you'll click
Then you have to track food, do it real quick
and the weight will drop off, this is not a trick

To make this work for a lifetime, you just have to move
You must do this forever, to really improve
Walk, or do yoga, or find a gym you approve
So, find exercise you like, and get in your groove

I have said this before, this is no magic diet
it's a life-long plan to make food cravings quiet
Leave junk at the store, don't ever, ever buy it
And you will be soon in your own joyful riot

Make a list, too of what makes you awesome
Put this on your mirror, and beat your own drum
Look at it daily, and feel yourself blossom
Know that this year, the best time's to come

This journey will have bumps, more often than not
The trick is to keep moving, stop thinking you're caught
Get back on your road, you know what you've brought
Don't ever, ever quit, make this year your chip shot

This isn't hard, you have to keep yourself strong
Ignore the doubters, food pushers, they all are so wrong
And, you'll be on your way, don't look back and long
Put a smile on your face, fill your heart with your song

Spark on.
