Life Goes On
Saturday, June 12, 2021
The initial shock of the Spark changes has worn off. I went through all the stages of grief rather quickly. Having a few more weeks to figure out my next steps allows me more time to accept this change and make a plan. I’ve also been so busy at work, my goals most days is just to make it to the end without tears, screaming or breaking something or someone.
I have kept up with moving daily but I’ve had to change what I do based on the weather and an injured arm. I’ve also found the late nights and poor eating some days impacts my energy level. Some mornings I just don’t have a lot to give but, I make myself walk at a minimum.
ON A POSITIVE NOTE...
I’m excited I finished my 1st virtual 5k this morning. I even won my age group which was a complete surprise but super motivating. I have no illusions about my true athletic abilities and I’m sure there weren’t a lot of participants that submitted times but, I will take it!
Looking forward, I’ve signed up for the new Spark. I haven’t really had time to use it daily because I log my food here, send pics to a nutritionist and I can’t do another thing right now. I’ve connected with the Spark alumni on Facebook and some friends on IG.
We have all been on our health and wellness journeys a long time. We’ve overcome so many obstacles, including illnesses, weight gains and injuries. SparkPeople is a tool that connects the community but it is just a tool. We can figure this out, regroup and continue our programs successfully.
I told y’all my momma didn’t raise a quitter! Today is not the day to start and nobody gets to tell me when I stop climbing, crawling, scrambling, fighting toward my goal to be better today than I was yesterday and meet my weight and fitness goal. I didn’t even know this morning but I woke up a WINNER!
WE GOT THIS
I am sending you positive vibes for the week!
