Wake-Up Call

This past year has been kind of rough on my family. My mom was diagnosed with, and has completed treatment for, breast cancer. My dad just had hip-replacement surgery. If ever I was in need of a wake-up call, this year was it. I'm 30 years old, and have hip and back problems, plus high cholesterol. Its time to finally make a real commitment and lose the weight I've been carrying around for the past 15 years.

Drop by & say hello! Sorry I was underground this year for the Komen walk, but I'm thinking about the October "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk" in Hartford- you up for it?

Happy 2012! Yup, I'm a little late. I had a bit of a hiatus over the holidays, but am back and ready to lose these last few pounds (and the couple I gained back over the holidays.) Hope things are going good for you! Don't be a SparkStranger. :)

Thanks so much for your comments on my blog!! My cat sounds just like yours, I've wondered before why she attacks the doorjams and climbing the walls, I guess she must be chasing fruit flies and dust bunnies too!!

Have a great weekend!

HI- Thanks for your comment... I will def check out that Queen song... good music is so motivating. If you have any other suggestions I am always looking to add to my playlist. Another favorite song of mine for exercise is Gavin Degraw's "I Don't Want to Be". Have a great day tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by my page!

To answer your question, the Calgary Stampede is a big 10 day party in my city. It's a huge rodeo event and western themed, but involves a big fair, shows, exhibitions, and the entire city getting dressed up in cowboy gear. It's the biggest event of the summer here.

It's also a very dangerous time for food, since you can stumble across a free Stampede breakfast every day, and fried food, cotton candy and mini-donuts abound.
