Take the Next Step...

I am a work in progress (aren't we all?). I am trying to focus on each day as it comes. My current effort is to remind myself that today is what matters. I do not think of my choices in terms of forever but rather in terms of the moment. What have I learned in my short time with SparkPeople? I've learned that TODAY is forever. Can I drink eight glasses of water forever? I don't know, and the thought is overwhelming. But what isn't overwhelming is this: Can I drink eight glasses of water TODAY? ...

Can I drink eight glasses of water forever? I don't know, and the thought is overwhelming. But what isn't overwhelming is this: Can I drink eight glasses of water TODAY? Yes. Absolutely. And today is what counts. It's what matters. And it applies to every choice. Can I get in at least five fruits/veggies today? Sure I can. Can I make that decision today? Yep. That's doable. Today is my forever. Today is how I make it happen. Today is my inspiration.

My Goals:
Returned to food tracking and weight management effort as of 7/10/14. My first goal this year is to lose approximately 20 pounds by mid-October.

My Program:
I will be accountable, but I will not be too hard on myself.

I am working on some changes having renewed my commitment in 2014. Right now, I am diligently tracking everything I eat/drink, which ensures that I log in each day. I am closely monitoring my sodium and make a strong effort to stay as close as possible to recommended daily range, due to some concerns with the way medication has affected my blood pressure. More to come!

Personal Information:
Indianapolis, Indiana Girl :)

Lifetime Weight Watcher Membership earned in 1997 -- I'm still very proud of this accomplishment despite all the subsequent weight struggles I've had in my life.

Persist

The only way to fail is to give up. Whatever comes, whatever happens, keep going.

Fix your eyes on the goal, and persist. Your vision, your commitment, and your actions will take you there.

When you can make great big strides, make them. When you can take only small steps, take them.

See every moment as the opportunity that it is. When the wind is at your back, keep going, and when the wind is blowing against you, keep going.

Make good and effective use of whatever you encounter. Tap into the positive value that is always there.

Know precisely where you wish to go and why. Keep going, and you are there.

(Ralph Marston)

"How would your life be different if . . . You were conscious about the food you ate, the people you surround yourself with, and the media you watch, listen to, or read? Let today be the day . . . You pay attention to what you feed your mind your body, and your life. Create a nourishing environment conducive to your growth and well-being today."

Crowd out poor health habits. Choose activity before TV. Eat 3 veggies first for each meal. You will crowd out the less healthy choices.

If you can't run, then walk.
If you can walk, then crawl.
But, whatever you do,
You have to keep moving forward."
