Finally -- Time to Focus on My Goals!

2012 brought a lot of changes to my life. Most significantly, I had shoulder surgery that resulted in a frozen shoulder. I went from doing Insanity and P90X to wishing I could do my 1980's Firm VHS videos!

The good news is that I'm finally taking a break from the corporate world while I focus on rehabbing my shoulder. Now I finally have the time to cook healthy meals and focus on my weight and fitness goals. Now I need to focus on my portion sizes and food tracking.

2012 brought a lot of changes to my life. Most significantly, I had shoulder surgery that resulted in a frozen shoulder. I went from doing Insanity and P90X to wishing I could do my 1980's Firm VHS videos!

The good news is that I'm finally taking a break from the corporate world while I focus on rehabbing my shoulder. Now I finally have the time to cook healthy meals and focus on my weight and fitness goals. Now I need to focus on my portion sizes and food tracking.

I started Sparking in 2007 and haven't stopped since.

In 2013 I'm focusing on the nutrition part of weight loss. It's more critical than ever since I can't work out like I used to.

A little about me personally: I live in the DFW area, and love to travel domestically and internationally. I adore hiking and hope to one day live somewhere that has great trails.

I am working on an HR tech start-up while my shoulder recovers. We create employment applications for mobile devices so it's easier for candidates to apply for jobs. This helps companies increase their applicant pool. Please check it out at http://hrvirtuoso.com and let me know what you think.

I'm trying to hang in there. My headaches got so bad back last year and just steadily escalated over the summer and into the fall that it just kept sucking my workout days down to nothing. I was spending more and more time in the dark bedroom or on the couch than anywhere. Walking/Jogging outside in the sunlight was NOT an option for me anymore. So, by October all our jogging had pretty much ceased. I went to a headache specialist on October 22nd and have been slowly recovering ever since. I am much better but just last week had 2 migraines within 3 days of each other. They left me drained and foggy-headed up until this past weekend. After suffering migraines back-to-back like that, I can't think straight and my thoughts are all jumbled and I am a ding bat for days afterwards...It is SO bad!! Anyway, I am doing much better but the doc says it will take time to get me on an appropriate dose of daily preventative. She wants me to be in a place where I am only having 2 or 3 a year instead of 4 or 5 a month. We'll see how things go.

Wish us luck!
