Oh boy, oh boy!

Friday, November 07, 2014

I just haven't had time for spark for the last 10 years. Oops, I meant 10 days. My kids were here for 5 days which was a wonderful visit, and I cooked before and during their time here. And ate and ate. They left and I cooked some more for a potluck and another group meeting. And ate even more.

A spark friend asked where I'd been and if all was well. Yes, I'm fine only larger, and I seemed to enjoy being away from spark and feeling no accountability. Of course I could have found time for spark -- every day. But it was easier to go on eating and just ignore everything I'd been successfully doing.

Today I have gone back to what works: tracking food and exercise, tracking my water, emotions, sleep, etc., being in touch with other sparkers and yes, blogging. If I want to lose weight, this is the only way for me. I have to do it all, every day, no fooling and no quitting.

    Your blog strikes a big chord with me. Of course, my time away was the length of a year, which I spent EATING and sitting on my butt all day. Like, you, however, I knew that I had to come back to Spark and start doing what works for me. Tracking and staying in touch with other sparkers. emoticon

    Sometimes life gets in the way and it isn't as easy as other times. It is never easy but you know what I mean.
    Congrats on getting back to it, proud of you emoticon

    I'm glad you had such a good time with your kids and that you're back at it again. It seems we can't be gone long without some little voice inside our heads telling us it's time to return - and that's a good thing!

    Excellent! The right attitude has returned. We all go through ups and downs, ins and outs but we must enjoy every step of our Life Journey. We get paid 86,400 each and every day to do with what ever we want. It is all gone within 24 hours but we get another 86,400 as soon as the last 1 is gone. If we don't; then life is over. Therefore let's choose to use every one of those seconds to our best advantage. It is our life to select what makes us happy and to make those we love happy also. With that said, let's just keep on keeping on! Every second counts my friend. emoticon
