Education Left and right

Well as you saw in my last blog a lot is going on. So let me start with the stuff that really doesn't have anything with Sparks. I was able to see my granddaughter tonight but because I am not hooked up to facebook and my computer will not download anymore pics I can't show how beautiful she is. Work has been just a roll a coaster between loving it and hated it but I guess that is why it is call work. Family has been good. Now that number nine is here I have to get ready for number ten, he is due in January so I will be throwing that baby shower in October. I also forgot to tell you that I found a doctor who will see me and I think he and I are going to get along. First of all he thinks that my 135 goal, that EVERY doctor I have talked to wants me to get to, is BU******, He wants me just to considerate on one to two pounds a week only and not worry about anything else. It doesn't look like I will be able to see a GYN or an ENT anytime soon due to the facts that one the office want me to put my personal medical info on the internet and I refuse to do that. Second most ENT will only see the kind of patient that I am once a week and only one of us each week and all of them are booked until December
So now that has been said let get onto Spark business. I have not been doing so good on my goals this week so I read an article called" 3 to 5 key actions that will move you toward your goals". The first step is a SUCCESS SCORE CARD before I can do that I have to define what does success look like to me. I have no idea! In fact I usually run away from it. So I don't know how I am going to do that step at all. Once I figure that out the next step is to keep a score card each day with and either give me a grade of A-F ( A being the best and F failing of course) or 1-5( where 1 is the worse and 5 being the best) then look at it each week. Where you celebrate your successes and learn from your mistake each week. Then if I every get past this first step I suppose to BULLET JOURNAL using the Write, Feel it, See it, Be it rules. I get the whole write it , see it thing but the feel it and be it thing is something I will have to figure it out, also it wants me to break big goals into smaller goals and I am all over that. I do my weight loss like that each week but I rarely follow through on weather I have reach those goals or not. The next step is ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER. Well I kinda of have two but I wouldn't call them Partners. One is my personal trainer I pay her to keep me working out so if I'm not than she gets paid for nothing and I am not okay with that. As for the other is my hubby even though he is my life partner as an accountability well let's just as I am not my best when he tries to tell me I am doing something wrong. LOL So I don't have one of those yet. Then the next step they call it WHITEBOARD it is simple drawing it out on something to give you a visual breakdown of your goals and I guess it all good if I can only get past that first step. Yeah I know the first step is always the hardest. The last step is to celebrate streaks but I am not really good and celebrating and bragging on myself so once I can't do anything that I don't know how to do and never been taught how to do it.
Success had always been one of those thing that has scared me since 8th grade and an A I worked SO HARD FOR all year was yanked from me( that is a very long story) So I don't know how to change that mind set.
Then most of you all already know I read that article on not to take yourself so seriously. After reading that I found out that I wasn't the only one that could use it so I may if a discussion topic for the next twenty- six weeks. I hope it will take off.
I will keep you posted on each step and I hope you will join me on the discussion boards so we can help each other
