One of the most powerful things that SparkPeople has taught me is that although I can & will be imperfect, I can still be a success! If I miss a workout or go over on calories, I don't throw the towel in for that week, or even the whole day. I look at how far I've come & jump right back in.

It's way too easy to be thinking about what comes next, instead of staying focused on what I'm doing. When I stay IN THE MOMENT, I actually get more done: Things run smoother, I have more fun doing everyday things--I enjoy things more-- and I do a better job at WHATEVER I am doing, whether it is an errand, exercise, cooking or eating... It's actually mentally refreshing!
