Pick up, dust off, GO BOLD!

Friday, August 15, 2014

Today, I need to be my own best cheerleader...

I was just reading over some of what I have written. I need the inspiration! I have allowed the weight of my current circumstances to WEIGH ME DOWN. I am capable of countering the stress, but I am not using my BEST coping strategies...at least not all together. One of my Spark friends mentioned the idea that sometimes we have to "fake it, 'til we make it." Oh, how true that is! It is particularly true this week. I have struggled with getting up and out for my walks. I have followed my eating plan until dinner time, then find myself without a plan, without enough supplies, and hungry. BAD COMBO. I have overeaten. But...

I KNOW I am strong, and I know I can keep pushing past, through, over, and around the obstacles I face today. I also know there will be more struggles. That is just life. And I will take it as it comes, and figure it out.

I am making a note of this today, because I want to remind myself that stumbling is not falling, and the progress I have made far exceeds any recent missteps. This is going to be the difference between this time, and EVERY other time I have tried to get healthy. I am still ON this journey. I am not giving up. I am all about ACTION.

Pick up, dust off, GO BOLD!

    You've lost a lot of weight this year and done awesome. It's normal to hit the wall and we all find ourselves fighting old urges when this happens. Look at your old clothes, check out how much smaller your butt is and applaud yourself for all your hard work. I NEED you here! Ok, apparently it's about me but you should probably do it for you too.
