Choose to do your best!

Life is full of choices. Accepting that I am charting my life's course by the choices I make puts the responsibility for my positive attitude and healthy lifestyle on my shoulders. I am not a helpless victim ... I can choose to do my best and change as I need to (one step at a time).

Set healthy boundaries

Be true to yourself. Pay attention to how much you are comfortable with giving and taking in relationships and draw the boundary lines in a healthy place for you. Enforce those boundaries with a smile and a positive attitude.

Re-read your SparkFavorites

Read again the things you've saved as favorites, like yesterday's Confessions of a Reformed Procrastnator :-), there's lots of good stuff there that is particularly meaningful to you.

Exercise First

Get your exercise done first thing (early in the day) while your energy level is high and before other commitments get you bogged down.

Be the Real Deal

Love who you are and express yourself authentically. Be kind and tactful, but be true to yourself. Realize that you are valuable, and your opinion matters. Be less judgmental of others (they are valuable too) and more willing to learn, to admit mistakes, to laugh out loud, and to work at being best person you can be.

Stay Engaged

Make involvement with SP a priority in your life. Log in daily; read SP e-mails and articles; answer trivia questions; join teams and huddle daily; track your food and water; read blogs; encourage others ... the more time and effort you expend on being involved, the more focused you are on healthy choices.

Just get out there!

Even when you feel like sinking into the couch at the end of the day, just make yourself go for a short walk. When you get out there, it feels so darn good that you may go further than you planned and you'll be so happy you did it!

Love yourself

Accept yourself the way you are ... then love yourself enough to work toward becoming that hidden person your want to be. "There's nothing to it but to do it" (the song "Heart" fm "Damn Yankees" by Richard Adler & Jerry Ross)

Plan Ahead

Fill in the food tracker in advance (e.g. before going out to dinner) so you can see how what you're planning to eat will look on the overall nutrition report for the day ... then make adjustments if you choose (isn't it great to be free to choose!).

Think positive!

Kick negative thinking to the curb. Make becoming the person you want to be a self-fulfilling prophesy. A good attitude smoothes the way! emoticon
