As Long As I Keep On Keepin' On

Friday, November 01, 2013

As I embark on this continued life long journey, I find myself wondering how I will feel when I reach that goal, be it short-term, medium-term or long-term.
And I do know that I will one day reach each one of those. Will I be able to look back and say "well done" each and every day or will I have to admit to the various bumps in the road? Because I do know there will be bumps. If there were no bumps, the road would be easily traveled and we would all be at the end of our journey and able to remain there. I also know that I will learn as I go. And I will be able to see what happened. I will have learned many lessons, I will have experienced much Spark friend support, but most important I will have learned that though it is not easy, it is indeed doable. As long as I keep on keepin' on!!

    Those darn bumps in the roads may slow us down but we've got the power to go over them and leave them in our dust!!

    WE'VE GOT THE POWER!! emoticon

    We encounter bumps, but what matters is that we bounce back and move on!

    We all encounter bumps Arlene, I know you'll look back and think 'wow, I did it and I feel great!'

    It's learning to live with the bumps that is the key to success in my mind. I remind myself that eating french fries is not the end of the world. I just can't use it as an excuse to binge on all kinds of terrible foods. Or more importantly, if I skip a work out for one day, to make sure I do something the next day. You are so right. There will always be bumps in the road.

    I learned that there is a moment where it is wonderful...but if you don't keep working hard, or go back to old ways, it can be short lived.....and I think we have to find a goal range.....if the goal is weight....

    I am right with you about getting back to goal weight range....

    have a healthy day
