In it to WIN IT! Winning my sexy, that is! Let's work it girls!!!
APRIL CHALLENGE...So I have to return to my hometown in two months. I will be making home repairs with minimal remodeling so that I can put it up on the market. When I left 6 years ago, I was 140 lbs. I've got to get close to that weight in the next 2 months. It'll be WORK! It won't be easy. This IS DOABLE. Watch me....
THE TIME HAS COME, AND IT IS NOW.....IT'S TIME TO KEEP MOVING AND EATING HEALTHY FOR THE POW!
Last year turned out to be one very challenging year with many obstacles that I allowed to get in the way of my weight progress; however, I didn't give up. I may not have eaten as well as I should or could have, but I DID put forth the effort and energy to keep up a great fitness level. Additionally, I've acquired many new ideas for addressing the food challenges when you simply LOVE FOOD!
SPARK friends have really provided much interesting and possible ways and ideas for pushing oneself forward, addressing obstacles, defeating weaknesses, and simply allowing oneself the necessary treat such as chocolate, truffles, ice cream, etc., yet how to continue the weight loss progress for a fitter and healthier person.....the best you.
So, here I am ready to be the BEST ME YET! Please check in on me and provide me your support as I post my newest journey and yes.....I'm fretting about it (terribly), however, I believe this newest accountability tool is going to help push me to my personal best.....PHOTOS. Yes, I'm going to post weekly photos of my progress. I've got the tools that I didn't have in the past. These tools will help me see my personal progress as well as help me overcome challenges such as plateaus, food choices, life and work obstacles, etc. I've got a new phone and I've been working on it regularly and even tracking my food on it. Like I mentioned, this has been a learning year, nonetheless, working this new phone, getting a new camera (I should have purchased the phone first, duh!), etc. All of which are helpful tools for pushing for daily, yes daily progress! I can track my steps, workouts, food intake, make proper food choices, and not fret when I make improper food choices. Thanks for all the new ideas you've provided SPARKIES!
I"M READY TO MAKE THIS MY BEST YEAR YET!

WOW! I'm back. I can't believe 2 years has passed. I have another grandbaby, so that makes 2 now. I'm struggling with weight again because, and this time, I just spoiled myself. All babies have left the nest, I'm on my own so not having to cook for anyone but myself is both a blessing and a curse. The weight has climbed and the closets are full. I'd like to get back into my cute clothes especially the dresses. Maybe, this time I'll find love and it will be a charm and permanent. My daughter introduced me to the 21-day fix. She is a little ole thing and lost 12 lbs in 21 days. She is BUFF! She loves showing off her guns! I want that feeling too, so I'm starting my FIX. I'm going for 3 rounds, approx 12 weeks. That means I may be sexy and skinny before the new school year starts! Let the GAMES BEGIN!
