I am eating healthy, the least processed, store bought foods I can afford, and cooking at home. I have an at home gym (minimal equipment), workout DVDs, and enjoy outdoor exercise related activities such as walking/jogging.
I am happily married to an amazing man. I just started a new career as an LPN at a Family Practice. I'm working full time. My youngest of 4 is just now 11 months, and I have a 7, 14 and 18 year old. (yes, I'm crazy, lol) I am determined to make this work. Wish me luck! And good luck to you!!!

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day." -Robert McKain
TGIF Spark friend! I hope you've been having a healthy week and that you're ready for a Spark-o-licious weekend! Keep doing your best to make progress each day, because you are really worth the effort! See you on the Healthy Holidays Challenge team! Hugs, Pixie

"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want. Taking the first step forward is always the hardest. But then each step forward gets easier and easier. Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible. And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible." -Karen Salmansohn
Just stopping by from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team to encourage you to take those steps forward towards your goals. Even baby steps will get you closer as long as you keep going. Never forget that you are always worth the effort! Have a great day! Hugs, Pixie
I made myself a snowball, As perfect as could be, I thought I'd keep it as a pet, And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas, And a pillow for its head, Then last night it ran away, But first - it wet the bed! ~Shel Silverstein
“You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. It's possible to treat yourself with outrageous kindness beginning today. Compulsive eating is only the symptom; believing that you are not worth your own love is the problem. Go for the love. You will never be sorry.” -Geneen Roth
TGIF from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team! I hope your week has been a good one. Did you do your best to make progress? You are worth the effort, you know. Be sure to treat yourself with "outrageous kindness" today and every day. You are awesome! Hugs, Pixie

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything. You just need the discipline and determination to see it through. It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you. Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final. Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew." -Barbara Cage
Just a friendly reminder from the Healthy Holidays team to remind you that there are 28 days until New Years Day! Stay strong and keep your goals in mind. We are getting a running start on a healthy new year! Hugs, Pixie
LIFE LESSONS FROM A SNOWMAN (Unknown)
It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy. Hold your ground, even when the heat is on. Wearing white is always appropriate. Winter is the best of the four seasons. It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection. There's nothing better than a foul weather friend. The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul. It's not the size of the carrot, but the placement that counts. We're all made up of mostly water. You know you've made it when they write a song about you. Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize! Avoid yellow snow. Don't get too much sun. It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet. It's fun to hang out in your front yard. Always put your best foot forward. There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.
"What is it that you would like to achieve? What is it that you wish to change, improve upon, create, express or experience? If you ever want it to happen, now is when you must do something about it. If it is your desire to see it come about, it is your responsibility to make the necessary effort." -Ralph Marston
Happy December from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team! Keep doing your best, one day at a time, to make progress towards your goals. The holiday season makes it tougher, but not impossible. We just have to be more determined than ever to keep going. And we are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
