No more excuses...

Time to stop letting excuses, old habits, and poor ways of thinking ruin my life!

I've yo-yo'd one more time and I'm DONE. I've gained back all the weight I lost before joining Spark (see that 171 lb photo of me...that body is gone again...DAMN...but I'm keeping the pics on my fridge for a reminder of how I can look with 35 lbs off of my bod). Ugh.

I want to eat more healthily! I need to refine my diet & start working out again & get some motivation from others ...

It’s been more than a year since you read my blog entry, “Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Not Just Size 5”…I hope that the last year has brought you happiness and success in life. But above all, I hope that you have remembered how beautiful you are!

emoticon Ooooh, I regret that it's taken awhile emoticon to officially say hello emoticon , but I promise I had good reasons (explained below)!

emoticon you for commenting on my April 5, 2010 daily Spark, "Envisioning Your Future with a Collage and Some Friends."

I've added you as Friend, and look forward to learning about your Vision Collage journey since then...or, if life's been too busy, of offering my hand and inviting you to take that next step this autumn, through my favorite Vision Collage medium, SoulCollage®.

emoticon As another enthusiastic Sparker, I have a special offer created with you in mind!

I'm in the process of planning ongoing, online (probably monthly) workshops for SoulCollage® Life Vision card-making and card-journaling in community emoticon , ideally with an online classroom so we have live access to one another for that block of a few hours. My goal is to mirror the actual workshops I have facilitated in person. The difference is, in the Spirit of SparkPeople, these workshops are free! emoticon Monthly groups are by sign-up, so there is no obligation.

SoulCollage® through the venue of SparkPeople is so exciting to the SoulCollage.com community that we have the enthusiastic support of author Seena Frost and her staff. emoticon On top of THAT, KaleidoSoul creator (and Sparker) Anne Marie Bennett asked to co-lead emoticon our SparkSoulCollage® this time around. emoticon

Okay, okay, I've been MIA emoticon after jumping into the Spark pool last year in spring emoticon . But, hey, a baby arrived emoticon (grandson) who needed "daycare," so my absence has been honorable (and fun!). On top of that, I've recently rescued a Golden Retriever emoticon . I call them my two golden B-Boys (Brock and Bradyn).

Please, please say I can count you in! emoticon (I equally welcome hearing if it is not a fit right now. I promise: No judgment or tears emoticon .)

emoticon Regardless of where your path leads, I hold you in affection and wish the best for you.
emoticon Sue

I noticed your comments about Zumba on a recent article and wanted to drop a line...

If you want to try Zumba but aren't ready to shake what your momma gave ya in front of strangers, PLEASE consider the Zumba DVD Box set!

I posted an in-depth 2 part review here: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_pu

Zumba is for EVERYONE! Steps can be modified to be less or more intense, and the main focus is to have fun while you get fit. I *highly* encourage checking it out!!

PEACE - LOVE - ZUMBA!!!
