just sayin’ … I want???

Monday, July 08, 2019

Hubby: I am so proud you WANTed to walk today.
Me: Well, WANTing to walk is not exactly the word for it. I WANT to be in shape.
Hubby: Then you WANT to walk.


God love this man.

I want to be in shape.
I want to be able to tie my own shoes without passing out.
I want to be able to keep up with Hubby.

So … I guess I WANT to walk and eat to support these … wants.

I re-read OneKidsMom’s blog … To whom is one accountable? … this morning and then Hubby’s words echoed in my head through our 40 minute walk. Yep, I am up to 40 minutes as of today. He and the pups walk further … but I know me and I am gradually adding minutes to my walks 5x a week so that I don’t over do it and then don’t do it at all.


Whom is one accountable???

I wrote on her blog:
Hmmm … aren't we accountable to … ourselves???

What we eat in private … shows in public.

But … having Sparkers in your corner who understand the pitfalls of our lives … that's … support IF they don't enable us to … mistreat ourselves. And hold US accountable to what we said we were gonna do.

Whatdoya … think???

Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.

    emoticon YOU are SO SMART and doing this your way which will get you TO a STRONGER YOU!!!
    Trying to go TOO FAST can and does lead to injury and setbacks. STAY ON TRACK and FEEL GOOD About ALL that you are doing for yourself. I LIKE WHAT YOU SAY about BEING aCCOUNTABLE TO YOU.

    HAe you seen this quote from Spark Coach Nicole..." STRONG is the NEW SKINNY"? I love this qquote, IT ihelps me stay focused on why I am working out and why I am on the ROAD to HEALTH and FITNESS. It is NOT to be skinny. It is to BE STRONG. The older I get the more important this becomes to me.

    Yes, indeed we are accountable to ourselves, to our bodies, minds and spirits. We can TRY to "let it slide" but our bodies will show the consequences. Our minds will know it. And our spirits will feel it.

    Nothing is as powerful as keeping a promise to oneself! And that is the accountability we truly seek, for it means we are at peace with ourselves and comfortable in our skin. emoticon emoticon
