Starting the Spark Solution...

On December 28th, 2009, I chose for the first time in my life...to put ME first. To make change the path that my life was on. I wanted to LIVE not just to live. I wanted more than sitting on the couch, falling asleep at 7pm every night and wishing i had the energy to clean my house. I have two beautiful children, both who learned unhealthy habits from me, both who are relearning habits now with me.

The road is a never ending one, and one that will definitely have twists, turns, ...
On December 28th, 2009, I chose for the first time in my life...to put ME first. To make change the path that my life was on. I wanted to LIVE not just to live. I wanted more than sitting on the couch, falling asleep at 7pm every night and wishing i had the energy to clean my house. I have two beautiful children, both who learned unhealthy habits from me, both who are relearning habits now with me.

The road is a never ending one, and one that will definitely have twists, turns, bumps, potholes, and even sinkholes, but I am determined that I will follow the road and LIVE.

UPDATE: I am GETTING MARRIED!!!! Over the past year (august 2010 to now) I have put back on ALL the weight i worked so hard to lose. I am now working again to lose! My future husband is working WITH me on this goal, and together, we are moving toward healthy eating and getting up and MOVING! :)

MARRIED on July 16th, and still riding that wave of euphoria. :)

UPDATE (4/3/2013): I could give excuses and tell you how hard the past year has been, but essentially, I gave up. I am now back up to the highest weight i have ever been, and trying yet again to change. Now, I not only have to change MY eating patterns, but also my husbands, because together we can do it, separately, not so easily done.

UPDATE: (5/17/13): I am starting the Spark Solution two week challenge. I can do this, I WILL do this!

UPDATE: (12/29/13): I'm working on it.

UPDATE: (3/5/14): I'm nothing if not consistent in my failure to make a lifestyle change stick. sigh. I am trying again!

I didn't know that she was coming out with a new cookbook! I am sure it will be as good as her others. I really enjoy them.

How was your day? Mine was good but long. I am on day 4 of this 28 day pilates workout that I found on youtube. I like it because the workouts are only 5 minutes but they aren't easy. I am sore which is great!!

Hope you're getting back on track. We all slip and slide but as long as you keep on going you'll finish the in the end.

Hey! I just noticed that you like the hungry girl team. I have three of her cookbooks. I love her!!! She makes things that are definitely lower in calories and the nice thing is that a lot of her books are single serving.

Anyway, how are you? I feel like I haven't talked to you lately.
