Take Magical Steps Towards Your Miracle

This Sparked Me!

I used to kick myself for what I should have eaten or should have done. Spark People has changed me. Now I imagine every positive step I take towards being healthy as magical.
-take my meds or do a blood sugar test
-choose a fiber rich snack
-go for a walk
-make a post on a Spark People thread
Some days I "run a marathon of steps" and some days are just one or two "baby steps" but they all mattter! They all add up. Look for an opportunity and run with it!

    Good post, I have to remind myself to check my blood, I am doing better, eating better, I just remind myself, do you want to see, walk with feeling, live a better life, and then I do what is right. It is hard sometimes when others are having ice cream and cake, but it isn't worth the way I feel if I don't eat right.
