IN LAS VEGAS .. DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY
half of my reason to live... my son
my love and inspiration
Is this thing on? *knock* hmm okay, how do I start this off? I'm an average fulltime working parent of a teenager. yikes! I get home feeling tired and ready to jump back into bed. I have this disgusting feeling inside that I'm wasting time, wasting away, and wasting what could be a potentially happy life. (that was my thinking a few months ago) I have since started to makes changes, positive ones. I started on Sparkpeople a long while ago...but never really utilized it....until now!
I CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE..BUT CONTINUE JUMPING ON THE WAGON.
Baby steps works for me because I tend to gain a craving or desire to do more than just the short term goal. For instance:
-Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
-exercise 15 mins. a day (trying to catch up after birthday cake...boo)
- exercise from 15 mins to 30 mins after two weeks of being consistent.
-cook 1 meal once a week (i still get mom's homecooking...so I dont cook very often)
-go swimming during the summer wearing a two piece/bikini!
- cook for myself daily (I live with my parents so homecook meals are always available, shhh I'm not spoiled!)
I have been taking cooking classes here and there through my community college or just online. I also like to watch the cooking channels. I am a vegetarian so I try to take specific classes. I am a member of Sporkfoods.com
I have a love for cooking, I just don't like cleaning up after.
I don't need to lose a dramatic amount of weight, I am a little bit happy with my body. I just want to tone my body. I would also like to strength train and I just bought myself the Trish Stratus Yoga dvd. I already play Wii Gold's Gym Dance workout and I play the Michael Jackson dance game (which is a workout in itself, that man could move!) I also try to keep busy walking the dog. My boyfriend is also into working out so we go on walks and he has gotten me into squats and situps. I hated them before but now he taught me how to make it easier for me to enjoy it. If its with him, its fun.
I'm in Southern California...in the suburbs.

Hello, I noticed your post about eating junk when you don't want it and common sense approach to fighting it. I haven't figured it all out yet, but what i realize is that as long as i take this journey one day at a time and make the healthiest choices i can, i can't get too mad at myself. i will give in to cravings, but only enough to satisfy that craving. I know what my goals are, i know that as long as i make the healthiest choice 80% of the time, i am doing good. feel free to sparkmail me. i added you as a friend.
