My name is Andra and I haven't been on Spark since before I was pregnant with son #2 and since having to juggle 2 boys and a husband I've lost my motivation for everything that Spark meant to me. This next journey will be a different one since losing lbs was my main focus before children now my main focus will be finding peace within.

I'm currently at my heaviest and I'm aware of this but the whole year of 2016 has been physically painful. My achilles on my right foot just throbs with pain usually every day and some days are worse than others. I need to see my doctor but I haven't put myself first to do this and I feel like that is problem #1. It's been rough all year but I remain as positive as possible for my family and I will continue to make changes to help myself so I can be there for my loved ones.

Here's to another crooked road to health!!

    Thanks for the goodie and support. I really appreciate it. Life has it's ups and downs and even though it's been a bit down, I'm keeping my head up and staying strong. I know this will pass and I'll be better for it!

    Enjoy your weekend!!!

    I have been trying to soak in the hot tub after my swims, but I often forget, or simply don't do it because I have a REALLY hard time sitting still. *lol* There will be a whirlpool tub at the B&B this weekend, though, and I fully intend to use it. (A huge 2-person tub?! I might SLEEP in there! *lol*)

    Speaking of life, how is the little one of yours?

    I seem to have to always go back to the beginning! Start what worked for me before. 15 minutes of exercise a day, tracking everything, losing only a pound or a pound and a half a week. That's what my body likes, and that's what my brain can handle! Minimal pressure so I can stay with it.

    How's the summer challenge going? I miss you all!
