OK - let's try this *again*! (Yeah, I've said it before...........)

Today, 10/8/15, I received awesome news (have been on a frustrating job search since May)............so now it's time to reflect on the experience and how I've worked through it - and frankly, it has *not* been a good one.......

Sooooooo - now, the introspection and soul-searching (or what's left of my "soul") begins again, including "re-Sparking"!

I'll shoot for a 40 lb. loss again - and will give myself a year to do so (I figure that'll allow for - ahem - age-related changes in metabolism).............eating, as in the past, will continue to be a challenge, but I have still been pretty consistent with workouts, thankfully..........I *still need to deal with stress better than I have been* - it's been a DOOZY to try to deal with that this time around.......

For those who've read my recent vents - thank you for bearing with me! I felt I needed to back off of things a bit for a while, so turning off my SparkPage for a while just seemed to be the prudent thing to do while I diligently worked on getting back on my feet.........

Let's hope the "third time's the charm"!

My Goals:
A better body and overall health - and a neater appearance in suits would be a good thing, too (as much as I HATE suits) :)


My Program:
No formal plan for now, but a basic cleanup of bad habits and refocusing on stress and emotional eating issues.....of course, the ultimate stress resolution will be getting re-employed :)

    Hi! Thanks for taking the time to check out and comment my blog. I didn't think of it as a horrible experience, but an exciting adventure!!! Plus it makes for great story telling! The fighting was sort of expected, people drinking when they shouldn't have been + years of pent up anger and issues that haven't been dealt with. We all knew something was going to go down, it was just a matter of when. Fortunately, we were able to keep it all out of sight from the bride & groom! Aside from those little bumps in the road, my vacation was AMAZING! I don't regret anything! emoticon
