Day 543 on countdown
Commit ~ to pledge or devote (oneself) to a position on an issue.
For a very long time I have considered myself a procrastinator. I have a problem with commitment.
To become healthy & fit you must devote yourself to your plan without an " all or nothing " attitude.
My Goals to become healthy & fit began with joining Spark people.
First I had to rid myself of some of my bad habits, the biggest one was smoking.
So in 2012 I started my journey. It hasn't been easy, and there are still days,
I still crave to have a cigarette.
I had to quit being a couch potato.
I started using my treadmill, it was hard at first, my body screamed and being
so unhealthy, I could only walk on it for 10 minutes a day at 2.0 mph.
Gradually, I built up to now doing 60 minutes @ 3.5 mph daily.
I had to control , my binge eating, and eat less processed foods and swap them
for real food.
Measure and weigh my food to have control of my portions
As of today:
I consider myself as a non-smoker.
I exercise daily at least 60 minutes except on Sunday's which are my rest day
from my workouts, and to replenish my body and restore my soul.
Every am. I enjoy my devotion and thank God for my blessings.
My food choices are a lot more healthier, and I have my binge eating under
control. I find this will always be a work in progress and I accept the challenge.
I have found you must change your attitude, and mind set to make this
I not longer have and all or nothing attitude
I am grateful for all pounds lost, and inches lost and no longer kick myself
for not loosing any weight on some weeks and give up.
Took me awhile, but I am learning to enjoy this journey.
I enjoy and look forward to logging onto Spark and receiving messages from
Receiving trophy's for my efforts
Building up my Spark points
I am so glad I stuck with Spark People this time, This has been the happiest I have
been in a very long time.
I have written this so the times I get discouraged I can come back and read for inspiration.
LOL can never have too many avenues to get inspired.
