Becoming Me

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Well, today I am hopeful. I have had my ups and downs sense starting my journey here on SP. I have been both proud and embarrassed of the things I have done. Today though I feel a much greater understanding for myself. I make a new commitment to my self today to get to know myself honestly. I feel as though this has been the thorn in my side and has hindered me from achieving my goals. I rid myself of the external bad habits but slipped into an older internal one. I have a long history of just being the girl who gets s@*t done and gets it done fast and well. That is how I got so unhealthy in the first place. I forgot that by setting a plan and ignoring the emotional aspect of the journey that I began to lose myself again even if it is in "good habits". I know that I will not be able to achieve and maintain my goals if I do no start actually loving me...all of me. Thank you guys for your continued support. So my fellow Sparkers...love yourself...and mean it! emoticon

    the great thing that comes with sparking is a better understanding ourselves, our motivations, our strengths and weaknesses. you are growing all over again, learning, tackling challenges. doing this for yourself will help you realize what a great person you are, how you deserve love from yourself as much as the love you put out there for everyone else in your life. keep at it, stayin true to yourself and reaching your goals you are going to become the most fabulous version of yourself yet! :D

    It's something I try to "work" on every day. I have to say I've made some progress.
    Important stuff to keep front & center. I can stay really busy "doing"....and ignore this very easily. I think that's one reason SP works for me. I get rewarded daily for "doing".
    Congrats on your progress! You look beautiful! emoticon

    I am very happy for you because the mindset you currently possess is, to me, the mindset of success.

    I too have come to realize that weight is not a physical battle, but a mental one, with one particular aspect being of SUPREME importance: human beings, above all, seek to be satisfied and happy and this requires self love and acceptance.

    IF we enjoy our exercise, not only will we do it more, we will reap more benefits: a body that is challenged and inspired and having fun will naturally work in your favor to restore your inner balance of mind, body, and spirit.

    It is not enough to simply exercise and pick healthy food: we must create our own personal blueprint for satisfaction, one that combines having fun with being fit.
    Then, we are TRULY doing everything in our power to foster an environment ripe for self-change, and the results will be immediate, consistent and long lasting.

    Best of luck to you. This truly IS the "road less traveled" - but what benefits await those who go the distance!
