April 2014: REBOOT

After 4 years of being on SparkPeople, I've lost 23 pounds and gained 23 pounds. How did that happen? So glad you asked. I quit doing the things that work, like tracking, exercising, making good food choices, drinking a lot of water and participating on my teams. This year I plan to rectify all that.

So. I've re-read the info on how to use this site. My goals have been updated and I think they are reachable. I've entered new info on my fitness tracker. I'm looking into new ...
After 4 years of being on SparkPeople, I've lost 23 pounds and gained 23 pounds. How did that happen? So glad you asked. I quit doing the things that work, like tracking, exercising, making good food choices, drinking a lot of water and participating on my teams. This year I plan to rectify all that.

So. I've re-read the info on how to use this site. My goals have been updated and I think they are reachable. I've entered new info on my fitness tracker. I'm looking into new teams to help me reach my goals.

Today I went for a walk early in the morning. It was so peaceful and refreshing. This afternoon I worked in the yard for an hour with my dad. I had forgotten how good it felt to move. Did you know that it's easier to drink water after working out and sweating? It's the simple things, right?

Thanks for stopping by. Please, before you go, leave a bit of wisdom on my page - a hint, a trick, an easier way to accomplish a goal, some positive thoughts, a little motivation. Whatever you have that's working for you, I'd love to know about it.

By Herb Caen:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

It doesn't matter if you're a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.


I've had this quote on here for a long time. This is what it means to me: It doesn't matter what our station in life is. We better be living it to the best of our ability. Here's to us!

I have just recently started getting more active and don't
know a whole lot about the teams. Right now, I
would suggest "Done Being the Fat Girl" team.

They seem to be enthusiastic, motivated, and
friendly and they have monthly challenges

I will be looking more closely at the teams and
I will try to find another you might like.

Yes, I understand about not getting around well
I am doing a little better but it is slow.

I am so glad to see you as well

I would love to support you. I am really
trying hard to be more consistent. It
is a huge task for me, but know that I am trying hard!
