Being the change for me.

Friday, March 28, 2014

I am experiencing a few new and really positive sensations:

1) I am enjoying the experience of making time and space for fitness activities MORE than I want to curl up and take a nap. Of course I could still enjoy a nap if I wanted or needed one...but the feeling that I need one all the time is GONE. I have more energy and feel more vital than I have in a very long time.

2) I am enjoying healthier food choices. I have turned a corner from wanting to eat away my problems, or "treat myself" - when what I am really doing is trying to stuff down stress. I am learning to re-frame my experience with food, and it is making me feel more powerful. I am not afraid of sweets or treats, I just don't feel like I NEED them the way I did before.

3) I am truly BELIEVING in my ability to succeed. I think in the past I have felt somewhere inside that failure was inevitable...that I was just "BIG," and I would always be "BIG," no matter what. I have found ways to push aside that negativity and really embrace my potential. I am being the change I want to see. It rocks!

Wishing every Sparker the best on your own journey. If we can think it, emoticon

    Way to go Erin!

    It's amazing how quickly our bodies adjust to a healthy lifestyle and the confidence that comes with that.

    I hurt myself a couple of weeks ago and was actually sad that I couldn't do my workouts. Two months ago, I would have never expected that!

    Keep up the great work!
