"Doing it" not just "Thinking it"

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I live a healthy lifestyle ... in my mind.

I notice that I sometimes give myself credit for simply "thinking about" exercise and eating right. It's almost like I check the little "done" box off in my mind.

That being said - over the years I HAVE made healthy changes to the way I eat and my fitness levels - I've just had a hard time sticking with them. So now when I catch myself checking off "done" for thinking about it - I'm calling myself on it.

What Spark People is giving me is a sort of anonymous place -
where I can face myself, and the changes I need to make, and what I truly want -
and where I can give and receive support from people on the same journey.

Your success stories are so inspiring - and your introduction stories let me know that I'm not alone in this. We all have different issues, reasons, struggles, excuses, problems, successes - and yet we are all - step-by-step - walking along the same sandy path.

So to my fellow path walkers - hugs - I'm glad to be here with you - and we can do this. And to those I see finding the paths that lead to the roads of success - I'm going to follow you. I hope you don't mind. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thinking it is the first step! Gotta think it before you can do it. Keep checking in here, and lean on others here for support, and before you know it you'll be doing instead of just thinking.

    You'll find yourself a leader and an inspiration to others in no time!

    Those "just do it" commercials are annoying, but it's a great motto. Don't dream it, be it!

    Getting from the thought to the action is sometimes quite a journey. Like you said, though, you have made healthy choices. I know I'm changing all the time. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

    Yes, living it outside the mind is what counts, but having the right mindset is necessary. Good luck!
