Walking By Faith

I took a bit of a break from Spark because my schedule just was not allowing me any time to be here. The resulting weight gain has me running back to SparkLand with the hope that I can jump back on the wagon and get back into some healthy habits. I'm gonna need my SparkFriends!

GIVE YOURSELF a little "Pep-Talk" today! But this time, talk to yourself using "the second person" (like "I know YOU can do it," instead of "I know I can do it"). We have been conditioned our whole life to perform for others--receiving support & directions from family & teachers when we were growing up, so we respond more positively. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your dearest friend . . . with encouragement, compassion, love & support. emoticon

Thank you for deciding to come and visit my page today, and to read my "The Positive Side of Discouragement" blog! I have reached a plateau on my weight loss again, and I have been trying to understand and get past it.

I sometimes have difficulty facing Monday mornings because I know it's the start of a whole week ahead, but the last few weeks have seen no perceived progress, and I was beginning to become quite discouraged. As the week wore on, I thought others might be having the same difficulty, too - and so as I mulled things over in my head this blog evolved.

I do hope that whenever you are feeling discouraged, you'll remember to stop and search for the “positive side of your discouragement”.

I am so happy you have found your way back to Sparkland, and that it helped to put some things into perspective for you that might help you along from this point on with your goals, and add a positive spin to your day to help you start your new week off with renewed spirit, and vigor.

Little mini-challenge for you: Try an Interval Walk or two this week (or adapt it whatever your cardio preference is). Exercise as fast as your can for just 30 seconds, followed by 1 minute at a steady, recovery pace, then repeat as many times as time permits. This type of "interval workout" intensifies your workout, so you don't have dedicate that much of your day to working out, but you still get the same benefits (if not more, because HITT workouts are a excellent addition to your workout regimen).

Thanks for commenting on my blog. It has saddened me greatly, but I'm chosing to count my many other blessings instead of letting it get me down. You're a dear for being concerned.
