Reigniting the Spark

Monday, May 26, 2014

It's been a while since I actively used Spark People. I was never able to find a proper balance between life and school. All the work I needed to put in became a crutch, an excuse for why I couldn't find the time to workout or eat healthy. Instead of taking the time out to take care of myself, I insisted I didn't have the time and never looked back.

Now, the damage has been done. I can't go back and change it, I can only alter the path I am on. I graduated a few weeks ago. Summer is here, and the warm weather begs for some fun in the sun. I can hear opportunity knocking on my door, and this time I will not just answer but also leave the door open.

This day marks another beginning for me. I am starting over, once again. But I am not ashamed. I may have failed in the past, but that only makes me stronger.

    Welcome Back!
I totally understand where you are coming from. It took me a while before I felt like I was ready to commit to dedicating the time to really make changes in my life. You can do it too! Remember we're here for you!

    One day at a time. Being a student has it's own issues so now that you are done with that for the summer you can focus and a much healthier lifestyle. Start new habits today so they are well in place for the fall. You can do it. It is not always easy but it is so worth it!
Best of luck!
