Second career mom

Update 4/12/14: Another sister joined Sparkpeople and she goes by ALICIA363. I am puttering along, mostly for the community. I do track my fitness, but tracking food tends to backfire on me. When I try to track food, I will just not eat because I don't want to track it. I found that to be true when I had to do it for a Lifetime Fitness class, and when I tracked I was only eating 1000-1200 calories. I am starting to develop the ability to notice when I am full and stop eating. When I ...
Update 4/12/14: Another sister joined Sparkpeople and she goes by ALICIA363. I am puttering along, mostly for the community. I do track my fitness, but tracking food tends to backfire on me. When I try to track food, I will just not eat because I don't want to track it. I found that to be true when I had to do it for a Lifetime Fitness class, and when I tracked I was only eating 1000-1200 calories. I am starting to develop the ability to notice when I am full and stop eating. When I don't, and overeat, I feel miserable, and that has kept me accountable for the most part. I think too, I am happier living on my own, away from my STBX. I know nutritionally I could still improve my choices, but for now, I am not arguing that I feel better and the scale is ever so slowly showing smaller numbers.

Update 3/3/2014: Now living in Iowa, where I got my first PTA (Physical Therapist Assistant) job. In the process of getting divorced, and 13 yr old son moved to Iowa with me last week. I started my job on November 22, and have loved almost every minute of it. The minutes I haven't loved are things that are annoyances that come with any job.

I lived in Nebraska and completed an Associate's degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant in March 2013. As of August 5th, 2013 I am licensed in the State of Nebraska.

Part of my motivation to join Sparkpeople was that while I was on my final clinical rotation Jan-March 2013, I lost 11.8 pounds. My profile pic is after that loss, but my "starting point" from here forward. I would like to lose more, but most definitely I want to keep it off.

For those of you who have been around for awhile, or if you wonder who the heck I am, I may have come across something you posted on one of my sibling's pages. ONEKIDSMOM is my sister and MOBYCARP is my brother. Now they have me sparking too. Currently I am mostly puttering, but at least trying.

All year long we focus on Healthy eating and moving the body to become fit. We do this for a chance to live life to the fullest. This fullness is to be shared at the dinner table at the holidays, not by what you put in your belly, it is to be measured from the joy you receive from being grateful for one more year with your loved ones. We do not get a guarantee to have another year with everyone you see, so make the most of the moment, and leave the worries for another day. Happy Holidays to you my Friend!
