I have spent the last few days thinking about what I wanted to write on my Sparkpage. August was a terrible month for me as far as my diet and fitness was concerned. Although I have continued to workout-Personally I know I have not given 110%. After writing a long “I’m feeling sorry for myself” story on my Sparkpage I came across this article-I had to post it.

Become a "Bounce Back" Believer
-- By Liz Noelcke, Staff Writer

Bounce back. Reevaluate the goals you should have set for yourself at the beginning and retool them as necessary. Goals should be realistic and specific, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be flexible and are allowed for minor impediments. Instead of looking at your project as a disaster or failure, view it with success. Concentrate on how great it will feel after it is finally done, after you have put your all into it. Instead of focusing on a possible unsatisfactory performance one single time, take a moment to sit back and reward yourself for all that you have accomplished.

Above all, don’t live with regrets. Approach life with perseverance and dedication to the things that matter most to you. Success is never easy. It remains up to you whether you will give up, or fight through the tough battles to earn whatever it is you want.

A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson is telling:

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

Move on with your life. Keep reaching for your goals and you will achieve them. One minor setback is nothing if you really want something and are willing to work for it. ….

    Hey there, I just wanted to stop by and invite you to join my brand new SparkTeam. It is called No Topic Off Limits and I plan for it to be a very active and diverse group to not only talk about weight loss but ANYTHING else under the sun. It would be great to have you there! Just copy and paste the link if you are interested. If not at least check it out before you turn me down ;)
