Beginning Again is OKAY

Friday, September 06, 2013

Well after doing so well this spring and posting on Sparkpeople daily, I allowed life to get in the way of my goals all summer long. In order to get back to where I was, I need to take control now regardless of the bedlam going on around me. If nothing else is on an even keel, I know that I can count on spark people to be a steady anchor for me.

So TODAY I will...
1) track everything I eat
2) drink my water
3) do at least 10 minutes of exercise
4) visit Spark Coach

I could give a million excuses why I have not been doing this all along. Some of them are somewhat valid and others are not. It doesn't really matter. All that matters is today...now. So even though I slashed all four tires, dumped the whole can of paint, and fell into the perfection mindset, I can stop that thinking now and get on my merry way.

I will pick up where I am right now and go from here. I will let you know how I did tomorrow.

    Beginning again is more than OK - it's the good and right thing to do. I admire people who seem to master this whole process - I am not one of them. I admire people even more like you who keep working at it despite the reasons it would be easier to just let it slide. Keep moving forward!

    Atta girl! Don't dwell in the negative. You're back on track. You've picked yourself up -- now just dust yourself off and you're back in business! We're here for you!

    You haven't failed as long as you haven't given up!
