I have survived a bumpy week at work and an equally bumpy week working towards my goal of a healthier lifestyle. Silly, but when I make that one bad decision it is soooooo hard for me to turn it around. It just seems to cause that avalanche until I feel buried and overwhelmed. Struggling to turn it around. I even bought Oreo's at the store!
Feeling like I want to eat, eat, eat - but knowing I don't want to see those results. Feeling a bit lazy, would rather sit in the house and withdraw than get out there and ride my bike or go to the beach - after all I will be the fattest girl on the beach you know. Then I logged into sparkpeople.
I read some blogs --- and I found some inspiration! Small steps, small steps, small steps. I will get there. I don't need to make huge strides. I don't need to run a marathon --- I just need to get out of the house and off the couch and take small steps.
Funny, but when I exercise, I am less likely to eat poorly - because I don't want to have done that work for nothing! I look at that candybar and think YIKES that's an hour on the treadmill! I grab that glass of water because I am thirsty from working out!
So thank you fellow sparkers!!! I found the spark I needed today to ignite that fire under my butt to keep me moving towards my goal!
Looking forward to the long weekend and some rest, relaxation and work in my yard --- and a picnic with friends --- I just hope the weather cooperates. Enjoy and be safe! Love you all. You inspire ME!
