Hey! Got your text about your article! Congrats - that is SOOOO awesome. I have to go out and buy it still, but promise I will. How's it going? I've been a horrible sparker and need to get back to it - brief update - I had 3 comps since Sept. St. Charles - Masters 1st, Open 3rd, Chicago - Open 3rd, and Rockford Open 1st! Yippee! Am enjoying a bit of down time now and plan to compete again in March. Send me a message and let me know what's up! Rox 2517 days ago
Wow! I can't wait to see your story in Clean Eating (my favorite food mag) and that is so well deserved as recognition for how far you have come.
Yes, Spark is a "safe" place - it is rather scary to go out on the internet and let it all hang out as there are so many people who are haters, attackers and just waiting to latch onto someone's failure... but not at Spark where unconditional support is everywhere.
BTW on your last blogpost, which I had replied too, I do think that Clean Eating is a way to continue to be healthy without being deprived or crazy about your program. I am finding in just these two weeks that I am more full throughout the day, less crazy sugar ups and downs, and that the food planning can be doable.
It really does take balancing our desire to be the best we can be (which can get soooo obsessive sometimes) with knowing that our body needs a break. Take care and succeed!
