Victory is Mine! Day 30!
Thursday, October 01, 2015
Hello My Spark People!
Have you guys ever had people tell you that you can't do something? Or planted seeds of doubt in your mind about your abilities? Or decided to "show you encouragement" by leading you down a different path, albeit well-meaning, but still different than the one you were on?
Well here's what I say to those naysayers:
I've had some people - some close friends and family - that shared their opinions about choices I made. Some even said that it's impossible to get 25-35 grams of fiber in every day for 30 days. I've even had people tell me they don't bother with 30 day challenges because they're a waste of time. Well, that might be true to them, 30 day challenges aren't for everybody, but this Fiber challenge was for me!
This is why I like it.
Winning or being perfect isn't everything. I didn't succeed every day of that challenge. I didn't log my food every day, I didn't write on the message boards every day, I didn't do ALL the steps that the challenge wanted me to do, but I made the choice to try and I got pretty darn close! And you know what? The choices I made tasted sweet. Just ... like ...
So, I mainly started this challenge because I was in a plateau and finding it hard to lose weight. Well, for the past 30 days, I lost 3 pounds!
So, don't let people hold you back! Do what you need to do to get your victory! Don't let others keep you from your destiny, from your goals, from your dreams!
And keep sparking my sparkly friends because you never know how your spark will affect others!
