Don't let the day slip by without doing something to improve your health. You only have one life & you only have one body. Everyone gets only 24 hours in a day. If healthy eating & exercise are not a priority in your life, you won't do them. If you're serious about healthy eating & exercise, you WILL find a way to fit them into your day. It's that simple. How serious are you?
If you're not happy with your choices, change them.
Make sure you give yourself a break once in awhile. Don't beat yourself up after you mess up. Trust me, I've messed up plenty lately, but I'm finally back on track & I'm noticing a difference already in how I feel, after just a few days.
Fight for your dreams!! No one else can do that for you.
Never, ever, ever give up!! It doesn't matter if your progress is slow. Slow is still movement.
And finally, we all need friends along the the way. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful SparkFriends on this journey.
Have a super Sparkly day!!!
Blessings to you!!!

I seem to be going from plateau to plateau lately, so I keep focusing on those non-scale victories to keep up my motivation.
Just on a whim, I did a search for "weight loss plateau" the other day on a fitness motivation website & came across the above poster. Once I get to maintenance, I figure I should be pretty good at it.
So the morale of the story is, keep pushing, keep doing what you're supposed to be doing. I also found this helpful:
Then, yesterday afternoon while I was having a little bit of a pity party, I was surfing Facebook & one of my friends had this posted on her page.
Eeeewwwwww!! Instant motivation to keep going.
I hope you all are well, my SparkFriends!
Blessings to you!!

Eeeewwwwwww!! Isn't that yucky? I go to a gym where they weigh me, measure me & check my body fat content once a month. At my last weigh & measure, I had lost 3 pounds of body fat, and it only took me one month to do it. That's pretty significant, especially looking at this photo.
Now, just to show you the importance of strength training, look as this photo:
My gym has replicas like these on display near the front door when you first walk into the gym. It's pretty motivating. Just looking at these photos, I decided that I'd rather have that nice pretty lean muscle as opposed to that ugly, misshapen & freaky looking fat!! Wouldn't you? Strength training will help you with that. I my little girl muscles!!
I'm not going to lie -- being consistent about eating right & exercising is challenging. But I know how much better I feel & how much better my body feels when I do it. I CHOOSE to accept the challenge every single day!!
I've also learned that:
Today, start searching for YOUR gifts!! There are so many to be found!!
Blessings to you!!
