But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Phil. 3:13b-14

The fight of 2014:
Last year was a rough year filled with changes, stress, and transitions. The result was going back to undesirable eating patterns, losing motivation to WO, and putting on over 30#. That puts my current weight close to what it was when I first started SP. Now is the time to learn from the experience, set all the failure aside, and fight to press forward.

Just checking out your page (haven't been able to do much of that with it being tax season) I noticed that you have 15 grandchildern. Whoa nelly. That is just awesome. It must be fun around the holidays. Hopefully everyone can all get together at the same time. I can see a house full of people and you all gathered around the piano at night and pure madness in the day. Did your kids and any of your grandkids ever learn to play the piano? I'm sure at least a couple fought you on the idea.
I am originally from N.O LA now I am in L.A CA. I guess I have always been an LA kinda girl.
I am starting to run myself doing the walk run thing as well with the c25k program . I am just entering week 3. I don't know what that entails because I don't look ahead in fear of getting freaked out. We shall see tomorrow.
I heard that Zumba is fun for a dance/ exercise class. Though, you may be thinking about a traditional dance class. I do know that Zumba classes are pretty easy to find.
Your page says that you are only in IL for a year? Did you all move there for a job? Where to next? Hopefully someplace warm.
