5% Fall Challenge - Awesome A's Team

Hello Spark Friends!!

I am a 33 year old single mom with a 14 year old teenager who just started STEM High School this year! I work two jobs (one full time and one part time), love to read lots and lots of books and running. I love to run, especially in the fall.

Hello Spark Friends!!

I am a 33 year old single mom with a 14 year old teenager who just started STEM High School this year! I work two jobs (one full time and one part time), love to read lots and lots of books and running. I love to run, especially in the fall.

I am starting my journey over again after many ups and downs. This time I hope to learn that this is a lifestyle change and keep the weight off. I am having alot of fun along the way. Making some new friends and joining challenges off and on SP. I feel like I have finally learned the secret here... so hopefully I can make it stick this time. The secret? Moderation and have fun!!!! Eat healthy, but allow for a cheat, exercise hard, but allow days of rest and find a way to make it fun... do what you love, bring your friends in the mix, get and give support, and challenge yourself! Keep growing!

So here I am hoping to incorporate sparkpeople into my healthy lifestyle for good and to keep growing every day as I push my own limits. I hope to meet you all along the way, and I hope you find your spark also!

Thanks so much for the info! Unfortunately most of my walking is done indoors on a track, so it wouldn't be able to track it. Bummer. Thanks again for the info though!

Stream of consciousness writing is basically where you just write out everything that pops into your brain. Things you're unhappy about, angry about, happy about, pleased with, people you're mad at, etc. Anything that pops up, you just write it down. The theory goes that it helps clear you out mentally. I forgot to do it this morning, so I must do it later. But it was nice to write everything out yesterday morning.

The surgery for my step dad was really rough, but I think he will be okay. Thank you for the good thoughts.

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!
