Finally -- Time to Focus on My Goals!

2012 brought a lot of changes to my life. Most significantly, I had shoulder surgery that resulted in a frozen shoulder. I went from doing Insanity and P90X to wishing I could do my 1980's Firm VHS videos!

The good news is that I'm finally taking a break from the corporate world while I focus on rehabbing my shoulder. Now I finally have the time to cook healthy meals and focus on my weight and fitness goals. Now I need to focus on my portion sizes and food tracking.

2012 brought a lot of changes to my life. Most significantly, I had shoulder surgery that resulted in a frozen shoulder. I went from doing Insanity and P90X to wishing I could do my 1980's Firm VHS videos!

The good news is that I'm finally taking a break from the corporate world while I focus on rehabbing my shoulder. Now I finally have the time to cook healthy meals and focus on my weight and fitness goals. Now I need to focus on my portion sizes and food tracking.

I started Sparking in 2007 and haven't stopped since.

In 2013 I'm focusing on the nutrition part of weight loss. It's more critical than ever since I can't work out like I used to.

A little about me personally: I live in the DFW area, and love to travel domestically and internationally. I adore hiking and hope to one day live somewhere that has great trails.

I am working on an HR tech start-up while my shoulder recovers. We create employment applications for mobile devices so it's easier for candidates to apply for jobs. This helps companies increase their applicant pool. Please check it out at http://hrvirtuoso.com and let me know what you think.

Hi there. Just stopping by to see how you're doing. I have been mostly using the android app to log in and spin the wheel, see what my Spark Friends are up to, read articles in my "down time," keep up with my goal board, etc.

I'm reeeeeeeeally looking forward to joining a spring fitness challenge. Do you know of any? I'm reluctant to commit though, because when I do, something inevitably throws a monkey wrench in my cogs. ANYWAY, I hope you're having a blessed day!

Hello,
It was good to hear from you. Are you ready for weekly checkins again? I am doing very well. I don't even notice my knees until I sleep.

I am gearing up to start working out with more intensity. Getting the routine going is the hardest thing for me.

I applied to several jobs with no luck. I saw one today that is remote. That would be great, although I still have enough to do with the kids.

My oldest is driving now and gearing up for college. The other children are very busy with school, boy scouts, and church.

How are you doing? Is your shoulder better? How is your husband doing?
