What I have been doing well

Sunday, September 08, 2013

Spark coach has really been keeping me on track. One of my least favorite things it has me do each day though is blog! I am not fond of others reading my thoughts. I am not a very good writer and in my hurry I make typing errors. Today's prompt made me want to blog though! It said what three things have you been doing well.
First, I have been getting up 15 minutes early and walking on the treadmill everyday. When I started 2 minutes would get me winded. Now I do15 minutes. I do 20 jack knives on wii. When I started I couldn't finish 3.
The second thing I am doing well is journaling everyday. Before, if I had a bad day I didn't want to write it down. Now, I use it as motivation to not do the same the next day. I am not beating myself up over it! I ask myself what can I learn from it.
The last thing I have been doing well is checking in on spark coach everyday! As my friend that is doing spark coach with me stumbles I ask if he checked in with spark coach and the answer is no. I know spark coach has kept me on track! It might not be perfect progress. I haven't lost as much as I would like (only ten pounds since June) but I feel better and I am sleeping better. I have to remind myself it's a marathon not a sprint!

    Now that school has started, I hope you keep up with Spark Coach so that you will continue to lose through the school year.

    Just think, if you lose another 10 pounds in three months, how ready you will be for the holidays...

    And, you know, to me that 10 pounds this summer sounds fantastic!!

    If you are supposed to blog on here, you could just say something like "I ate within range and got in xxx amount of exercise." It doesn't have to be your most private thoughts. Those are probably best left for journaling anyway.

    Have a good school year.

    emoticon I liked this blog....but what I like more is your determination to make this work for you. Journaling is a very personal thing and I know it isn't easy to write the bad days...what happen and why, but so worth getting it out and reachable to make changes. Keep up the great job you are doing..... emoticon
