Life is a trip

When I started Spark in 2011, I never thought I would get back into running but that's what I did. I ran a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon. I lost the 10 pounds I wanted to lose and I was feeling great about myself. Then, I lost my job. Looking for employment was not as easy as I hoped it would be. I started taking on temp assignments, financially I was declining rapidly. By 2012 I was eating more and more and exercising less and less.

When I started Spark in 2011, I never thought I would get back into running but that's what I did. I ran a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon. I lost the 10 pounds I wanted to lose and I was feeling great about myself. Then, I lost my job. Looking for employment was not as easy as I hoped it would be. I started taking on temp assignments, financially I was declining rapidly. By 2012 I was eating more and more and exercising less and less. To make a long story short, I gained back 9 out of the 10 pounds I lost. I'm still looking for work, but I am determined to get back on my exercise regimen and stay connected to Spark.

I may give up temporarily to rethink options and rebuild my focus but I always return to what worked and Spark worked for me, so I know with determination and commitment, it will work for me again.

Thank you so much for stopping by my page and giving me such wonderful compliments as well as encouragment. Every time a runner stops by my page and says something to me I am greatly encouraged and it just gives me more to shoot for in my newfound "like"(can't say I love it just yet) of running!! :)

Thank you for the sparkgoodie! :) believe it or not, those are not recent pictures... Those are from success a couple years ago. I had put almost all the weight back on and have had to relose it....I have surpassed the previous low weight by about five pounds.
