If not now, when? Love yourself into health and a good life of your own.

Different health complications over the years contributed to weight gain. Now, I am determined to take control over them and reclaim my health. I am a self-employed Pencil Portrait Artist, so I have no excuse for not having time for me. I work on MY schedule and I can make time for ME.

My Goals:
IF NOT NOW, WHEN? My goals are simple. To reclaim my health thru body, mind, and soul. This is not about the scale. This is a total fitness quest.

My Program:
I try to eat every three hours to keep my metabolism at an even keel, balancing protein with healthy carbs.

I do some cardio every day and alternate my weight lifting with upper body one day and lower body the next.

I was going between two sights doing this and this year will be using only SP. :) This will help me get a better visual of with more accurate reports.

Personal Information:
I am from South Dakota. I was raised on a farm and still miss it. I owned and operated semi's and drove Coast to Coast for 14 years by myself. I have always been and will always be a "blue-collar" gal. :)

Other Information:
I am still self-employed. I have a portrait studio now and people send me their photos and I do custom work for them. My daughter draws with me. My husband as a Wood working shop and we have combined our talents with Laser equipment now.

Hello, I really like what you wrote about making time for yourself, because that is so very true. I know first that I myself always put everyone else before me, because in all honesty, I did not value myself. Although I did not realize that I felt this way, I did so, all of my life while I took care of everyone else, even strangers, to avoid taking care of myself. But, after I had ignored several attempts to warn me that something was seriously wrong with my body, I had one final fall which would forever change my life. This "fall" forced me to be "still" unable to walk, unable to do for everyone all of the things that I had always done. This "fall" forced me to have to spend hours upon hours alone, thinking and reflecting upon my life and the choices that I had made... This "fall" saved me from myself, before I worked myself into my grave, never having a chance to know what life was really all about... Although it is sometimes difficult to acknowledge that we ourselves have value and taking care of ourselves is important, it is so very true. As I read your writing, I could feel your pain and understand how you may be feeling. I would like to extend a virtual hand of friendship to you...

Sadly, these friends are trying to take control of oldest DS's life as I am evidently not doing a good enough job. Little do they know what is in store after I get full guardianship.

Yeah, I guess. Spark Guy sold it to Google or something? If I'm understanding what happened correctly. I'm assuming he stayed in charge of everything as far as running the site, but the first thing they did was add TONS of advertising. That's what freezes my computer up. Gosh, that's probably been a year ago or more.
