Staying Focused!!

I am in my third year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my three year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2014. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I celebrated my three year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2014. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 10 milers, and 4 Half Marathons! I am currently training for my 5th Half Marathon - the Delaware HM and the Philly Broad Street 10 miler. Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

The biggest things that stand out to me are my energy level and my confidence to try new physical activities.

I have eaten a lot healthier over the past three years. I love the food and fitness tracker app on my iphone. It helps me to stay consistent and on track.

I am so happy that I took up running - it is such a big stress reliever! It is now part of my routine so I just keep going.

I'm hoping it's salt.. It's very upsetting to spend so many weeks losing 5 lbs only to gain them back in 3 days. :(

Thanks! I've eaten my oranges, had chicken soup, and have drunk lots of tea with honey and lemon. And now, off to bed--again.

Yes, saline drops are a standby here too. I also have a steroid spray that is especially helpful at night. Doing everything I can to get rid of this for good!
