I don't know anything anymore

Thursday, November 20, 2014

I had a reason when I first started my journey but with each year that passes I get a year older and my goal gets further and further out of my reach. At this point I am 42 years old and realistically speaking the goal I did all of this for in the first place is just not likely anymore. I know the only one that can give me a new goal/reason is me and I just don't have one....I am not giving up. I'm just waking up...

    For one, you are still young. If you feel your goals are out of reach, then take another good look at them. Think about what you really want. You have children, maybe make a goal to eat healthier, cook healthier food. Don't make huge goals, start small.
    If you need to talk or just vent email me. We are all here to help each other out in many ways.

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

    I have been questioning the "why" behind my goals too. What is the purpose of it? Everyone is different and we have to figure it out for ourselves. I love being more healthy for my family so that benefit alone keeps me going. Sometimes we just need to take time to figure out what we want to accomplish.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    YOU are the reason! You can do this, need to do this for YOU! Motivations are nice: getting married, have a baby, run a marathon, hike a mountain. I see things like that as motivations. But what happens when those motivations are gone? You're married, have your kids or the time has passed, ran your marathon, hiked your mountain....what then? I've used motivations in the past, but often they passed me by. I'm now trying hard to do this, for me. I want to feel good. I want to be my best. I am worth it. YOU are worth it! emoticon I hope you can find something else that puts a spark in your step!

    Oh, honey, you're still a pup!!! You've got plenty of time to think things through and set up some short term and long term goals. Make some of them about happiness, and you're sure to reap many rewards.

    Reevaluating goals and figuring out what you need to do is always tough but I'm sure you will figure it out once you think through it all... and you will find your new goal and reason for doing it.

    This is a long hard journey. The important thing is we never ever give up. We start over. Try for one good choice at a time. You can do it, we can do it. Just don't give up. Start tomorrow, make a good choice for breakfast. You can do it.

    Hey kiddo, it sounds like you might be down in the dumps a bit.

    Why not go back to the beginning . Remember when you fist started at Spark? Well pretend this is the beginning again and start from there.
    Sometimes we get stuck and our goals seems so far away but you must BELIEVE in yourself. You will get there is you keep living healthy.
    A healthy nutrition program and fitness daily even if it is just 10 minutes to start with. Maybe join some different teams (ones that have a lot of challenges)
    Do what will work for you but waking up means looking at the whole picture.

    YOU CAN DO THIS! Remember why you started, remember how good it feels every time you reach a goal. Remember how awesome you look when you are standing on the mirror.
    If your BMI is in the healthy zone, then maybe you are just being too hard on yourself, If you have slipped into some unhealthy habits, change direction and start over.

    What have you got to lose.
