Spark Page Memory Lane
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
I'm checking out my Spark Page and notice all of the accomplishments and all of the pictures are old. As much as I enjoy seeing them, they are no longer accurate and I need to update my profile picture. My current picture is of me after completing a half marathon. Right now, I'm barely completing a half mile without stopping. I need a "Before" picture now so that I can better realize that I'm not where I want to be. I can get back there but that will take time, hard work, and patience. So tonight I need to take a current picture of myself and make it my profile so that I can see that everyday and do something about it.
I'm 2 weeks in on doing something about it. I'm calling it a soft introduction as I'm figuring out meal plans and exercises to make it more of a routine. I'm making better food choices but am also having a cheat day each week due to some events in January that I'm choosing to partake in less than healthy foods/drinks (annual company party being one of them). I'm okay with that because I know I'm not allowing this to be the norm and my wife and I will occasionally have those to keep our sanity.
Positives for the first two weeks are: 1) No fast food, 2) No sodas. Although these are not things I do on a regular basis, they are easy options (and bad choices) that I know won't get me where I want to be.
Hopefully everyone is having a Happy New Year and working on a Happy New You.
