Putting the Spring back into my Spark

Time for a fresh start, and what better way than with a fresh page? I can't say that the past few years haven't been a struggle, but I'm still plugging along. And that's kinda the problem, I'm just plugging. I've lost some of my *Spark*, so I'm making getting my spark back a goal for this spring and summer!

*I need to get back into running. And I will!

*I need to lose a few pounds...but more importantly, some of the jiggle that has *sprung* back upon me. And I will!

*I need to get out more, and become more social, and maybe even get back into the theater/entertainment world. And I...well, I might. I need to be more social (and I will!), but still thinking about the theater thing.

*I need to rediscover my passion for life. I've been drifting a bit over the last few years, especially after I left my theater dreams behind, and I need to rediscover my spark and passion again. And I will!

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. I know there is so much more I am capable of, and I want to do all I can to figure out what that is, and what I can contribute to the world around me. And this spring is just the beginning!

Won't you join me?

SparkPoints: 129,863

Fitness Minutes: 124,283

My Goals:
Continue losing the flab and firm up my muscles.

Begin taking yoga classes, perhaps with an eye towards becoming an instructor. At the very least, be able to put my legs behind my head!

My Program:
I love running, and even completed a half and a full marathon in the past 2 years. I'm also a big fan of kickboxing, and have a problem with collecting exercise DVD's-I have an ever growing collection of all sorts! I'll try just about anything once.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Chicago. From there, I moved to Knoxville TN, and from there I moved to Atlanta, where I am currently. I'm planning to move back to Knoxville soon, to pursue a more peaceful life.

I am a Christian who tries to live by the golden rule-do unto others as you would have done unto you. I try to be kind to everyone and appreciate and accept that not everyone will agree with me, nor I with them. I'm not always successful with this, but I continue trying.

Other Information:
I'm a recovering actor, and am now looking towards making a huge life change. I'm considering pursuing yoga, pilates and holistic nutrition as a career. Or not. Who knows. I'm open to just about anything!

Thanks for your comments on my silve linings blog. I hope so... it's so easy to just relax and forget about it and then lament that I didn't do more.

Hope you are having fun!

Thanks for your encouragement of my goals! You have such faith in me, but knowing that you think my goals are realistic, practical, and clear headed helps me feel that, yes, maybe I am on the right track! I tend to be hard on myself, probably too hard.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I am truly blessed. My husband wasn't always so supportive. But now that he realizes it's for health and not another man it's much better.

Sorry to hear your work has been exhausting you. Take care of yourself! And don't forget to have some fun (with friends is even better).

Yeah, I've still been fairly busy between graduation and the move, but at least I'm sleeping more/better at night and my evenings are free... so definitely an improvement!

Things are going to be hectic/chaotic longer than I originally anticipated... My husband was offered (and accepted) a fantastic job. He likes the people and work where he is now, but he's been wanting out of Detroit since the van was stolen the third time and we've been wanting to move there for several years--I have a lot of friends there, it's a better location for me to seek jobs from, etc. AND the job is a substantial raise, plus WAY better benefits, plus more opportunities for advancement, so it's a really good move for him professionally.

So we're still moving at the end of this month because we have to, but we're also going to now get a small place where he can crash during the week hopefully and then go house hunting. Wish us luck!

Thank you for your comment. I never thought of my approach as unusual--it's just what makes sense to me. Maybe because I'm naturally introspective, LOL. But it's a constant balancing act between what I want to accomplish and what I can realistically accmoplish, LOL.
