Failure? Not an option

Friday, May 13, 2011

Usually when I get an idea and put into motion I don't think about the possibility that I might not succeed. This is good and bad. Good because I don't talk myself out of doing things because of the possibilities of failure. Bad because sometimes when I hit those obstacles, they knock me off track and I put it on the back burner while getting distracted by other things AKA "Quitting".

So I'm sitting here and it's dawned on me that I might get "distracted" and this could be the latest of many of my attempts to get fit, lose weight, and be happier and healthier. The thought of not accomplishing my goals this time brings me to tears. I am so sick and tired of being uncomfortable in my own body. The difference between the present and all of my past attempts? I now have a written plan. I don't have a fad diet, or a vague idea of how I should be eating and exercising. I have spark to tell me what exercises to do, let me know if I'm on track with my cardio goal, and to educate me which foods are helping me reach my goals, and which are sabotaging me.

I also have the support of the most amazing man I've ever met who loves me for every pound of me, but is cheering me on and motivating me to reach the goals that will make me a happy girl. And lastly, I have such an fabulous network on spark, friends to pump me up when I'm down, and celebrate with me when I'm successful. I'm just starting out on this long, bumpy, not so easy journey and I'm so happy to be armed with all the necessary resources for success.

    Cross that bridge and never look back! I'm talking about leaving your old way of thinking which includes doubting yourself. BELIEVE IN YOU. I know I do (okay now I'm getting teary eyed!).
