Moving forward...

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

So, it's been two and a half weeks since I came back to Sparkpeople and started blogging 5/7 days. When I first started blogging I wanted nothing to do with getting exercise. Nothing. I was stuck in the precontemplation stage. I am happy to report that yesterday I did my 2nd day of working out in a row. Not much. I know. But it is something. it is a start. This my friends is why Sparkpeople is so important. This is why I can't quit blogging. Just being here and knowing I'm not alone. It makes all the difference in the world. I truly believe that as long as I keep coming here I will continue to improve. I know why I left Sparkpeople the first time. It was necessary. But I gave up on myself when that happened. Today, I'm a different person. Today I'm a stronger person.

I'm hoping I can turn 2 days into 3 with another 10 minutes of exercise tonight. The one thing I will say, my diet is terrible, but I did get my old snack back....the one I really loved. Sugar free dark chocolate pudding. I love it so much. It does not taste sugar free....I think because of it being dark chocolate. It got too expensive for me to keep buying it back in the day, but I think I will splurge on that for myself for at least a while. It truly helps keep my chocolate cravings at bay. And today I brought strawberries to dip in it. Yum!

Have a good day Sparkers and thanks for everything.

    Two days in a row is HUGE! That is what you need to do! And it is okay if everything isn't perfect right now. Diet, it will come as you start to feel stronger in all ways. If that little treat that is healthier makes you feel strong and healthy, then I say it is a worthy splurge!

    Like I was saying yesterday, motivation is NOTHING. Yeah, it helps us get started at times, but it always fades. I don't care if you don't have it now, you clearly have MORE. You have determination. That will outlast motivation any day.

    I know you got this. I know it.
