Can I do it again?
Sunday, July 23, 2017
I may only blog about once a week, but staying connected with Spark for the inspiration and motivation I get from others is very important to me. I credit it with staying in maintenance range all these 7 years.
Last month during our cruise the connection helped me keep my eye on those small goals. It was enough to keep me on track while still enjoying the entire cultural experience of 5 countries of Europe.
Now I’m headed to our neighbor to the north.
My chorale is singing in Canada (Montreal and Quebec). Joe and I are looking forward to it, both the sites and the cooler weather. We haven’t been there since Montreal’s Expo back in the 60s. Joe doesn’t sing but records us from the audience.
I have my running clothes packed and plan to get a run in before breakfast. I never want to miss breakfast. One long term goal of mine has been to run a few miles in each country we visit.
However, exercise has never been my problem, FOOD is. I have an enormous capacity to consume food. I can even overdo healthy food. So keeping my Spark focus is important. I want to enjoy my travels, but don’t want the downer of having to lose mega-pounds on my return.
I know it’s possible to be successful at this. Wish me luck!
And a virtual wave to my friends in Spark Canada.
