We all start somewhere on the journey

Thursday, March 08, 2018


We all start somewhere on the journey. We are all on different way (weigh) stations along the path. I'm not where I want to be, but I'm not where I used to be. For that I'm grateful.


Today I realized that I have only seven days left of the 30-day wall sit commitment. I added some more exercises and before I knew it I had them done. Hubby came in and saw me finishing the new ones and told me he was proud of me. It certainly helps having a supportive partner, especially when my muscles were on fire. I'm proud of myself too. I'm making small changes that will last.


Because of being a determined optimist, the biggest percentage of time I look on the positive side of a situation. That doesn't mean I am a Pollyanna, although some have said that about me in the past. It means I CHOOSE to read uplifting thoughts, surround myself with motivating, supportive people and look on the bright side whenever possible.


Tomorrow is 'scale day' so I'm mentally prepared to be accepting of whatever results that isolated tool reveals. Of course, it's always nice to see the numbers moving down, but my real focus is on measurable behaviors and non-scale victories. I've continued to log in to Spark People for 102 days and plan to make it a lot more for an ongoing record.

Song for the day is Rise Up by Andra Day:
"You're broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can't find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
And I'll rise up
High like the waves
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again"
This is not the whole song but here's a link if you're interested: youtu.be/8BWsrd_

I hope you will have a terrific Thursday. Spark on!

Thosio Ebine is the artist of 'Green'. I liked it because it shows a mid-way point.
