I worked out on the eliptical!!!

Sunday, April 04, 2010

I got on the eliptical for the first time 3 weeks ago, when I started working out and lasted 3minutes (and I was dying). Friday I was on for 15 minutes after 35 minutes on the treadmill. I am so proud of myself. Monday I am going to start with the eliptical for 20 minutes and then go to the treadmill.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon - I love the elliptical. I usually start out with it first then do some other cardio. You will definitely rock it, starting it first.

My New Life, Finally out of Darkness

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Nine months ago I walked out of a horrible situation. I left my husband of seven years with nothing but my kids and our clothes. I was scared at times and thought I should go back. I was afraid I made the wrong decision. My self-esteem and confidence were so low from years of being neglected by my husband and verbally & emotionally abused. I had such a hard time even giving eye contact when talking to people. I was sad all the time. But I am ready for that to change.

I want my happiness back. I have to wonderful kids, a relationship with God that is getting closer every day, a career that I dreamed of since childhood and finally a peaceful household. I have been trying to take better care of myself physically, mentally and spiritually. Finally I think my life will be on the upswing. I want to smile and laugh again.

Starting over again! (Once again)

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

My life has changed so much since trying to start sparkpeople again. I graduated college, started a new job, left my husband, moved into a new house, etc. I need to start again and build my self-esteem and improve my health.

  It is not selfish to make yourself a priority in you life.
