Putting Some Pep In My Step

I'm a New Year's resolutioner who joined SP in preparation for 01/01/11. I absolutely love New Year's - not the parties or anything, just the resolutions. In the dreariness of winter, New Year's really offers the opportunity for a fresh start, the ability to focus on the positive and look forward to the year ahead. I am a very optimistic and outgoing person and I am really loving embracing a healthier, new life and all the wonderful new activities this entails!

I'm a New Year's resolutioner who joined SP in preparation for 01/01/11. I absolutely love New Year's - not the parties or anything, just the resolutions. In the dreariness of winter, New Year's really offers the opportunity for a fresh start, the ability to focus on the positive and look forward to the year ahead. I am a very optimistic and outgoing person and I am really loving embracing a healthier, new life and all the wonderful new activities this entails!

I had a difficult 2009 and then a trecherous, world-changing 2010. At the beginning of 2011 I started to reclaim my health and lose the 60+ pounds I gained (that I had lost in 2008.) 2011 and early 2012 was difficult too - infertility and three miscarriages. Spark has kept me from going off the deep end and gaining an incredible amount of weight as an emotional response. I am happy with my progress - I'm not setting the world on fire, but I'm getting healthier and staying that way.

At the time that I am writing/editing this (October 6, 2012) I am happy to share that my son is one month old. I exercised throughout my pregnancy - even after my due date - and ate relatively healthy, while still indulging my cravings. I believe my actions will give my little one a stronger start in life - exercise has got to be good for both of us, right! Between nursing, being too exhausted to eat beyond what I needed to and short walks around the block to keep my sanity 20 days after delivery I lost all 32 pounds that I gained for baby. So now my goal is to continue on my Spark journey. I have one extra special reason to eat even healthier now - my son!

SparkPoints: 25,010

Fitness Minutes: 16,066

My Goals:
1) Comfortably wear a wardrobe where "X" is not in any of the tags.

2) Comfortably wear my engagement ring and wedding ring (the rest of me went back to normal after pregnancy, except my fingers)

3) Wear my promise ring again - it hasn't fit in years.

4) I don't focus too much on numbers, but I would love to weigh 20 pounds less if/when I get pregnant again.

My Program:
It's pretty simple: less food, more exercise. Better food choices, better recreation choices. No more TV as a pastime and ice cream as a friend during tough times.

Personal Information:
Native New Jerseyan, living in the southern part of the state outside of Philadelphia. I love the outdoors, flowers and reading.

I wanted to thank you for commenting on my blog, three years ago. (sorry) I was just re-reading my entries. I decided that I need to be more grateful. emoticon

That's scary! I'm glad you were able to catch it pretty quickly. Teeth are so weird. My infections couldn't be cleared up with antibiotics because they were trapped inside a tooth that had a root canal done on it (1) and a tooth inside a bridge (2). The first never reached my gums, the second took four years to do so. It was crazy. The first time I ever felt any indication that the first tooth was sick was when my chiropractor gave me colloidal silver. Two days of putting a few drops in my water, and it felt like my gums were trying to eject the tooth.
