MY CURRENT JOURNEY (March 2013):

A few weeks ago my husband and I went to Orlando for a theme park vacation. I didn't fit in the "normal" seat of one of the roller coasters and had to ride it in the "modified" seat. While at the time I wasn't as upset as I would expect from myself, since being back it has really bothered me.

I'm tired of being unhealthy, fat, and out of shape. I hope that this was, to quote my favorite Disney ride (Figment), the "one little Spark of inspiration" I need to stick with it this time.

SPARKPEOPLE ROUND 2 (July 2013 Update):

I started at the end of March by planning to stick with fewer calories and working out consistently for 17 weeks. I chose 17 because it is an important number for me and my husband (we met on the 17th, he proposed on the 17th, and we got married on the 17th). Plus it was small enough that it seemed in reach, and long enough that I hope to build healthier habits.

It is the end of 17 weeks. I consistently worked out, but did not consistently stick to fewer calories. I've lost about 6 pounds.

NEW PLAN (July 22, 2013):

I have to commit to tracking calories and sticking with a range. I have the commitment to exercise; now I have to commit to a healthier lifestyle all around. I find this easier to break into smaller goals so for 17 weeks my plan is to:

Lose approximately 1 pound/week.

Stay within the given calorie range/day.

Track calorie intake.

Cardio exercise 3 times /week for 60 minutes.

17 WEEK PROGRESS UPDATE:

Read the blog "Days 117-120 ~ 17 Week Progress Update" for more information:

NEW GOALS (March 2014):

Update 03/11 ~ In temporary maintenance mode since December. Will reset goals on 3/17.

Continue on this journey until I reach my overall goal weight:

- Stay within the given calorie range/day.

- Track calorie intake.

- Cardio exercise 3 times /week for 60 minutes.

Aimee,
emoticon Valentine's Day gives me a reason to express the feelings, emoticon

I think about but don't say about people, who enrich my life in unique and meaningful ways.

You are this kind of person. When I think of you, my thoughts are warm, and fond,

And filled with admiration. I feel blessed to know you.

May your Valentine's Day be filled with the love and respect you deserve.

emoticon emoticon Have a Happy Valentine's Day emoticon emoticon

-- -- -- When you're tempted to say one more thing-let it be "I love you". -- -- --

Aimee,
I came across this on one of my book markers,
So I thought I would share this with you.

""DON'T QUIT""

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won, had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure, turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It maybe near, when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight, when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worse, that you must not quit.
(author unknown)

Have a Fabulous February!!
