S is for something, sane, sanity, soup
Soup--yep, been buying better and getting better~~been buying frozen veggies, opening a bag, and eating them til gone. Now starting that when tired of that veggie, saving and freezing it for soup. Looking forward to that this week.
Sauntering--yep, I'm going to return some books to the library and then get some $ from the ATM so that if the snow comes in tomorrow, I can be ready to tackle the laundry. It's a mile walk, and I have my hooded sweatshirt in the car and my gloves here. I'll drink some water before I go! I swam today. I accepted what I can do for others for Christmas, and it's ok. I swam today for two hours......... it was great. I have 20 miles this year and less than I had last year at this time. I spent pool time in water aerobics and didn't count that, well that will give me as of now, 50 miles for two years. I'm grateful for the threads here and for those who interact with me!
Went back to the stages and just finished Fast Break, which was mostly reading the emails.
Here is stage 2! Portion Control
Eating the Right Stuff
Eating On Purpose
Finding Healthy Opportunities
I'm ready to leave Sparks, not run away from it, but leave. And to do that I want my points and I want to be losing weight. For a sucess to Sparks? No, not that. I've been spending hours here, and glad that Sparks has been here! It's taken me a while to realize that what is here is virutal and I can read, and write, and interact with others which I still need and wish to participate, but I also realize that it's the life outside of Sparks that I want to develop as well. It's the food in front of me, and the hands which have to not reach for stuff that will hurt my body. And these hands also need to drive me to the gym or reach for the doorknob to get me out to walking. Or the knees to bend to get me onto my yoga mat.
Motivationally? I want that little icon besides my name, silly huh?
But that's what I want, and I also want and need to get a different job, because now I'm ready. So that means limiting myself a bit to this site. Is this going to happen ovenight? No, but I've stayed with Sparks longer than any other program, I swam for two hours yesterday, and there is something about prolonged exercise that really helps the spirit.
Yet, I have the basic belief that I can not succeed at this. How do I overcome this?
