Day 52 and Setp 3!
Friday, June 10, 2011
In Sparkpeople there are "steps" that you go through as you learn about your body, how it works and how to sustain weight loss.
I've had an account on Sparkpeople since 2006. That...is rather sad to me...but it is what it is. It's taken me MANY times and attempts to get to this point and actually start succeeding and sticking with it.
You can use Spark in many ways and take whatever you need from the site. They offer a diet, and you can follow it or not. It's up to you. They have "steps" that help you move through and adjust your goals based on where your at with your diet and consistancy. (there are 4 steps total I believe..)
Well...I've never been above step 2. I always falter, get bored, and fall off the "wagon". Today Spark gave me the option to move onto step 3! So I took it. One of the first suggestions was to create a motivational picture. I'm quite fond of collages...so I went with that. Here it is:
I chose the cat/lion picture because I want to be proud when I look in the mirror (but fully recognize that it can "lie" and that I must be careful about that.) I chose the "confidence" picture because...well...I want to have confidence in myself and my presentation! The runners represents my desire to run, and move and best out!! Then my inspirational words to myself...and lastly...Pink!
I've never really been one of those people who idolizes celebrities...but Pink just really represents alot of what I love, and want for myself. I love her music, I LOVE her body...and if I could find a celebrity that represented my sense of androgyny...it'd be her. I mean...just LOOK at that body!!!
And...oh if I could look anything like her...
I will! I will look fit, and healthy, and strong. I can't look exactly like her because I'm *not* her but....oh if I could look close. :)
