Let's count to a MILLION
Sunday, March 19, 2017
This has to be my favorite game in the Fun & Games Forum for the High Blood Pressure Spark Team. At first, it was just a way to get three points for posting to a Spark Team. You just add one to the previous count. How long will it take to get to one million? The thread was started in January 2013. This morning, March 19, 2017, I added the one to make it 10,136. It has taken a little over four years to make it to the 10,000's at the rate of one at a time.
I have started relating this to how my journey on Sparkpeople is going. I have succumbed to emotional eating more than one time. I have let the stress get to me instead of me managing the stress. But if I want to reach my goals, I need to keep taking that one step. One step at a time will eventually get me to my goal. It's a lot of steps to get to a million, but one step at a time is what it takes. Today I'll make healthy food choices for breakfast. My next step will be to make healthy food choices for lunch. I can do this. I don't need to do this all at one time, just one step at a time. It is too overwhelming to think of the million steps, but I can handle one step at a time. If I stumble and fall, I'll pick myself back up, brush myself off, and take another step. It is just one step.
