A new me!!

I have not done that well in 2013 so decided for 2014 that I would try to do better. It seems I would lose 5 lbs each time I did the 5% challenge and then would gain it back during the breaks. I am rejoining the challenge team again but plan to try to do better with my thinking this time. I've just been too lazy and this has got to stop NOW!!

I have not done that well in 2013 so decided for 2014 that I would try to do better. It seems I would lose 5 lbs each time I did the 5% challenge and then would gain it back during the breaks. I am rejoining the challenge team again but plan to try to do better with my thinking this time. I've just been too lazy and this has got to stop NOW!!

Plans are to walk more and do more core exercises. I am hoping this will help my back which has gotten in bad shape the last few months. I've noticed I've not been motivated to do much of anything so maybe if I go to bed thinking I have to get up and walk first thing in the morning that it will help.

I have already started eating better have cleared out sugary foods out of the house. I'm trying to eat more cereals for breakfast. Hubby usually cooks breakfast but he loves his ham, sausage and eggs too much. Course he doesn't have the problem with weight or high cholesterol, etc. so I need to quit being lazy about that and just put my foot down with myself and eat better.

I'm so hoping this will be a better year. Once I start the back injections to block the pain, I think I will feel more motivated and want to get out and walk more.

Happy St. Patrick's Day my dear Spark Friend emoticon

May The Road
Rise Up To Meet You


May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

(traditional Gaelic blessing)
