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 absolutely LOVED San Anton!!! We had a BLAST!! I would love to go back when Sea World is open. I have never been to sea world, but during this time of year they are only open on the weekend and we were only there during the weekdays. =(

Oh well, maybe next time. We chose to boat tour the riverwalk rather than walk the whole thing. We decided that was a great decision. hehehe. It was a lot of fun. We went to Natural Bridge Caverns and The Alamo. We wanted to go to Jacob's Well, but never did go. The rain kinda ruined some of our plans. Why did it have to rain the week we were on vacation?? HUH? LOL!! We had a great time regardless. It was nice just to get away for a few days. Josh's mom and dad kept the kids for us and it was nice just to be kid-free for a few days. We NEVER are kid free. We live out here in Mississippi where we have no family to ask to keep them for us not even for a dinner date and it is expensive to pay somebody to keep them just for a few hours, so we always have them with us.

We had a good time.

Hi!
I just wanted to stop by and see how you are doing. I hope your shoulder is improving. You have been dealing with that for a loooong time.
Hugs,
Kay
