I'm not yet where I want to be - but I'm better than yesterday!

While it's not my first Diet Rodeo, I decided that this was the year that I needed to get serious and acknowledge that small, consistent steps will get me where I want to be, both in terms of my weight and building good habits.

After a lifetime of body image issues in my youth and 20s, I finally managed to get to a healthier state in my 30s - even taught group fitness classes! - only to allow it to get ...

While it's not my first Diet Rodeo, I decided that this was the year that I needed to get serious and acknowledge that small, consistent steps will get me where I want to be, both in terms of my weight and building good habits.

After a lifetime of body image issues in my youth and 20s, I finally managed to get to a healthier state in my 30s - even taught group fitness classes! - only to allow it to get away from me by just not paying attention.

I'm now at a stage in my life where my health and vitality depends on being at my ideal weight.

Oh, and I HATE having my picture taken. Sorry! Even my friends comment that our vacation photos never have people in them.

When I'm not at home with hubby and cats, I'm a corporate type. Fortunately, I work for a great employer. Now, if we could just get the economy to cooperate....

Many thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my most recent blog. I enjoy and benefit from reading everyone's perspective on this issue.

You may like some of my other blogs too. Not long ago I was a new Sparky myself; my blogs chronicle my growing familiarity with the techniques taught here. Some are helpful. Many people have found them humorous too.

It's JUNE! Where has the time gone?

Please forgive the blanket letter but there were too many people to thank and simply not enough time to write personal notes to everyone...

Thank you so much for your support and friendship. I am happy to say that I am pretty much back up and running full steam and only have a couple more hurdles to jump to finally put this cancer battle behind me. Now I can look forward to concentrating on my original goals again and come the fall will (fingers crossed) be well on my way to being heathy and happy.

Coincidentally, this Friday, June 8th, is Best Friends Day. So for all those in your life that you are thankful for, please take a moment to reach out, give a hug and share a smile. Where would our lives be without the amazing support and friendship from someone like you?

As we are entering into the summer season (for those, like me, in the Northern Hemisphere), I would like to send this wish to you:

May you enjoy an everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

Happy summer :)

"This Saturday, May 19, is the first annual Food Revolution Day, initiated by the Jamie Oliver Foundation."

Are you not familiar with the food revolution?? Watch this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6nDtr0mg
co

"The day will happen in kitchens, homes and communities around the world. In dining rooms, in restaurants and gardens, it will spark conversations about real food and inspire people to take steps towards a healthier lifestyle through cooking together. It's a chance for people who love food to come together to share information, talents and resources; to pass on their knowledge and highlight the world's food issues. Food Revolution Day is about connecting with your community through events at schools, restaurants, local businesses, dinner parties and farmers' markets, while promoting the mission for better food and education for everyone. To help celebrate, we've provided a selection of Jamie Oliver recipes from Cookstr to get you started. Find Food Revolution Day events near you" by copying and pasting this link:
