THERE IS NOTHING BETTER.

All the cleaning and getting ready for company was worth it. Had a lovely time with my sister , her friend and my granddaughter. They brought food from the Amish store and it was delicious and my granddaughter loved it too. Enjoy family this holiday weekend, there is nothing better.

I ran my first 5k today! It was a great workout / experience. I found that I had hit a plateau in my weight loss progress and needed a jolt! This worked for me! If you are bored with your current fitness regiment & need a new challenge, try something different that will help you SPARK FORWARD!

Daily Motivation

One of the best items I have purchased is the SparkPeople Monthly Calendar. I love being able to quickly see how well I am doing on a monthly basis and look back on how far I have come.

Benchmarks

I bought jeans from goodwill in different sizes...14, 12, 10, 8. I love trying to work my way down the sizes and it is an inexpensive way to get to my goal. When one size gets too big I re-donate them too.

Make goals/plans/lists for motivation and share them with everyone to help keep you accountable. Start pumping yourself up on a daily basis while you go over your goals/plans/lists and motivation shall soon follow. This applies to every single thing in life, not just eating right and working out.

Take the Focus OFF of Weight

It may seem odd since this is a weight loss site, but it really does help to take the focus OFF of your weight, even for a while. Setting a goal of being X pounds by X date can be too much stress and pressure. It may make you focus on being perfect or tempt you to make unhealthy choices.

The best way to spark positive energy for myself is to do something selfless for others... A potted plant with a "thanks for being a good neighbor" note left on a doorstep. The other day I paid for a couple of kids to get some water and granola at the library.

It's ENERGIZING to help oth...

Quiet Me Time

There are times when all of the activity around me makes my mind swirl and I can't think. When this happens, I go off by myself in a quiet place for about 10 minutes. I practice deep breathing, relax and regroup. My thoughts settle down and I can make wiser choices and cope better.
