The Page Where Life is Happening!

I am a Christian, happily married, mom to 5, musician, and a MK Independent Beauty Consultant. I am busy with changing my sedentary lifestyle to a more active one, eating a healthier diet, and having fun while doing so... time to quit looking at numbers on a scale and to start living life and enjoying it as I make healthy changes for me!

This is my time.
It is time to focus on my needs
not to ignore others,
but to stop always putting myself last.

This is my time.
It is time to focus on my needs
not to ignore others,
but to stop always putting myself last.

This is my body.
It is the only body I have,
if I don't take care of it now,
when will I?

This is my desire.
The desire to break the chains
of those habits holding me down.
To be free, to soar.

This is my life.
There are a myriad of ways to live it.
The choice is up to me,
And I am determined to live it healthily.

Member Since: 8/23/2012

SparkPoints: 42,687

Fitness Minutes: 24,711

My Goals:
To get to know God in a more intimate way.
To get down to a "normal" BMI.
To "find" myself as I transition from full time mom to an empty nester.
To recapture my dreams and live my life to the fullest.
To be able to run a 5K again.

My Program:
When I started my healthy lifestyle journey my weight was 286 pounds, and I was completely sedentary. Much of the food I was consuming was fast food or packaged prepared foods, and other quick and easy choices. The first thing I did was to cut out most of my fast food consumption. Next I added in drinking more water. Finally I added in exercise to the equation (thanks to Spark Guy and his "you can do 10 minutes" concept) Now I am down almost 40 pounds, and a few sizes. I love the energy I have, and the ability to do so many more things!

1. I am going to track my food. "If I bite it, I write it" is my new motto...
2. I am going to measure my food.
3. I am going to keep on eating healthy foods, but control my portion sizes.
4. I am going to exercise at least 10 minutes a day, every day. And I am only going to count it as meeting my goal if it is something that I am doing just to exercise.

I am going to live my life to it's fullest extent, I am going to get off the sidelines and start playing again.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You are right, we have to take this one day (or one meal, or even one bite) at a time.

“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back.
You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!”
