I deserve a treat because...what was my LONG DISTANCE RUN is now my SHORT DISTANCE RUN!!!

I am training for my first 1/2 marathon (my first race EVER) and today I had a short run, which was 4 miles.

Two Saturdays ago the very same distance (4 miles) was my long run. I thought I couldn't do it, I thought I wouldn't finish, I thought I was going to collapse...but none of those things happened. I finished what I thought was the longest run EVER, 4 miles!!

Two weeks later I am running machine
emoticon . I pop out bed this morning at 5:30 am. I tied my shoes, filled up my water bottle and went for a nice, short run...4 miles.

So I deserve a treat because...what was my LONG DISTANCE RUN is now my SHORT DISTANCE RUN!!!

I deserve a treat because I have been swimming almost everyday, even when I don't really want to. I bought a new bathing suit, that was my treat. Not a smaller size but one that looks like I should be swimming lengths. Sporty.

I went WAY outside my comfort-zone & went on family outing to a public pool. It was my first time in over 20 years at a public pool. The last time was 6th grade. I am more of a lake girl, but after all my ansiety passed I realized, it was fun & worth it.

I am getting over being self conscious & becoming self aware.

emoticon When reaching my weight goals, I decided to avoid using snack foods as a way to treat myself. It causes me to go off the wagon too much. Snacks are already part of my meal plan and there is no need to eat more of them. Going to the movies would be a an excellent way to reward myself.

I deserve a treat but as usual I don't understand how to correctly post my statement so I am replying to yours I agree you deserve a treat and so do many of those who have already posted. Truth is I don't see where my wanting or needing a treat is any more deserving than someone elses. But I do, hope and pray, wish and want a treat. I would share it with others and I do deserve it because I am willing to do for others, acknowledge others potential in achieving their goals and hoping I can continue to work on my own, while trying to balance my wants with what I really NEED to do! My best wishes to who ever wins this. I love to treat myself- but it is often a long space and time when I get around to "me." If you know what "I" mean?! I just try to accept the life I have and treasure the moments and remind myself that in itself "IS a TREAT!"

I deserve a treat, as I am slowly realizing that I am worth it, and if I don't start taking care of me, it won't matter to anyone but me.But I've received many "treats" already, my old clothes have become baggier.....My bras are Fitting!.....and people are starting to notice...my hair, jewelry, for some reason, they don't recognize, it's the same hair, same jewely....just the emergence of a new me!

I've stuck with my New Years' resolution to lose weight and get into shape. I've gone at it slowly and carefully. I've allowed myself reasonable "time off" and then gotten right back on track. I've learned that it's important to allow yourself occasional treats and breaks. Most of all, it's important to have fun.

I deserve a treat because I have committed myself to change. Lossing weight is not easy & set backs happen, but I've learned to get back up when I fall.

So I treat myself to new gym clothes or a pedicure when I reach a milestone!

I deserve more than I give myself credit for.

I deserve a treat for creating the opportunity for myself to get healthy after spending so long pretending that there was nothing out there to help me.

I deserve a treat because I have made a change for myself and encouraged so many of my in-person friends to stand up for themselves against all of the negativity that keeps them down.

I deserve a treat for finally learning how to love myself.

I have changed my lifestyle to a healthy one that includes lots of exercise and good, healthy eating. It's changed my health so that I am no longer at risk of being a diabetic. I never thought I could lose 70#, but I have!! I still have 30# to go, but have no doubt that I can do it, especially with the help of SP and my SP friends!

After reading everyone's post on this subject, I feel everyone deserves a treat.

None of us have walked in the shoes of the other and do not know what each person has experienced in life, whether it be a disease, abuse, a life threatening experience, yet each person has found ways to survive the hand with which they have been dealt.

I applaud and honor each person on the boards who keep on, keeping on with even the most minute or hugest experience through which they have had to deal.

It shows how much inner strength each of you have.
How each of you keep pushing the button to survive and achieve your goals, whatever they may be.

To me, you all deserve emoticon emoticon

Love, hugs, and ladybugs,
FreeOak

I deserve a treat because for the first time in my life I am being honest with myself and others about my eating. I had been doing well on my eating plan for the first 3 weeks after I joined SparkPeople but last week I went on an almost week long binge due to stress from a vehicle accident and family stress. I came right to my Spark page and blogged about it and also SparkMailed another member for advice,encouragement and motivation on how to get back on track. When I have lost 15 lbs. I intend on treating my self to a facial and a pedicure.

I have lost 20+pounds since joining Spark in Jan of this yr. I still have more to go, but it has been tougher to reach the second half. I have had less time to workout, been tired physically due to my disability and watching my goddaughter 5 days a week, but mostly emotionally challenging due to the fact that my dad is dying slowly right before my eyes with cancer and that mixed with the fact that I am an emotional eater makes this a tough time for me. I not only want to achieve my goal of 160 lbs for my health, but I need to achieve it for myself to know that I have control over something in my life when everything else seems out of control. Right now I would be happy to get to my halfway point of 185 lbs and then I would reward myself with a new haircut/style that would help me feel even better about myself, and help lift my spirits. I would like to get a new wardrobe, but I want to wait on that till I reach my final goal so I have something big to look forward to and to achieve. But in reality my biggest achievement if I reach that final goal will be getting control of my life by being healthier for myself and my family. That is something I need to do for myself but especially for the ones I love.

Despite dealing with stage IV breast cancer, and going through radiation, and now chemo, I am still at my goal weight which I achieved a little over 3 years ago thanks to Spark.

I treat myself my occasionally buying new clothes, or sometimes just little splurges, like a good smelling hand creme, or fresh fruit when it's out of season.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

If i give up when i fall; i will never achieve success - the road to success is paved with all the bumps we have in the road...
