Ascending into the Madness

In October of 2009, I made a decision to fully restart my *Fitness Life*. I contacted a personal trainer and handed my life over to her. At that time, I also began a blog to track my progress, restarted tracking and relating on Spark People and quit looking backwards.

Everything was going just fine until the end of April when my dad was diagnosed with Stage IV Glioblastoma. That's the worst possible brain tumor imaginable. We had a really rough summer and then on August 9, 2010, God finally took him home and released him from the misery. If I have learned anything during all of this, it is to live life, every day, to the fullest. Be the best "You" you can be, love the people God has blessed you with unconditionally, and forgive without hesitation.

Now it's time to restart my healthy lifestyle. Luckily, I did not fall too far off the wagon. However, I have been very unfocused and it is time to become laser-focused on this goal.

This is my year to look my best, be my best, feel my best. The only thing that can stop me, and that has stopped me in the past, is myself. And this time, I refuse to get in my way!

I was from a town called South New Berlin. It's between Binghamton and Syracuse. I also started school at SUNY Geneseo below Rochester before I transferred to UCF down here in Orlando. :-) The scent is what draws me to them (lilacs).

Hey did you post about your surgery? After worrying about it, how did it go? Have you seen improvement on the pain and flexibility? Are you seeing a physical therapist for it? Yes, I'm nosy... sorry... just hoping you are doing better with it.
