HEALTHY-SPARK

January 5, 2014. CARPE DIEM.
I am done with yo-yo dieting. I started Spark last year and saw some initial very encouraging progress, but let life get in the way, made excuses, and soon became inconsistent with my new healthy habits, and now I'm right back where I started. So enough is enough. My health and fitness are two of my top priorities. I am FOCUSED on staying within my daily calorie range and working exercise back into my life.

I set my ticker in 10 pound increments, to help keep me focused on small, achievable weight loss goal increments.

It was required that you shop for that new house with the cats in mind. Ours loved it when we moved here. Big backyard with lots of trees, birds, squirrels. We live close to the woods, so we have all kinds of critters wandering through. Most of the windows in the house look out on the backyard. Enjoy. Have you been there long enough you know where you are when you first wake up. I hate that feeling of disorientation the first few days. Give your kitties a kiss for me. Rube is curled up beside me as I type...

Hi! I saw your comment on my Tent Rocks photo....aren't you the lucky one to live there!

I would really love to move to Northern NM, but I haven't figured out how to make it happen (we both still need to work, etc.)
