Before & (Hopefully) After
Shared Fitness Tracker
Welcome to my Spark-Page! I'm glad you've decided to take the time to come visit with me.
I'm a 45 yr old, work-at-home Mom of 2 girls, Ages 13 & 10 yrs old, married for 18 years and struggled with eating healthy and exercising regularly most of my life. I know I need to live a healthy life. I currently am not healthy. I lack energy and motivation. I don't eat properly (skipping meals and catching up later is not a good thing.) I have digestive issues. I've NEVER had digestive issues in my entire life. I want to feel good. I want to look good in my clothes; not frumpy, like I do now.
I have maintained an exercise routine in the past. But when I fall off the wagon, I fall HARD. And usually the reason I fall off the healthy eating/exercise wagon is because I have to take the focus off of me and focus more on other things . I am not good at 'juggling' I guess. I must LEARN to incorporate my exercise & healthy eating into the times that get extra stressful for me.
Eating healthier, exercising and focusing on my goals must be made a priority in my life . Motivation is a key factor for me as well, so I look to you, my Spark-mates for help in this area. I know I am responsible for getting FIT & LEAN....no one else can do it for me, however, I know that encouragement from others that are going through the same thing will help me along this journey. I hope to make blogging here on SP more of a priority. Getting out my feelings and sharing my triumphs and struggles with others will help me understand myself better.
Thanks for reading about me and feel free to add me as a Spark friend! Best Wishes for a healthier YOU!

2/15-2/28 TAKE INVENTORY CHALLENGE!
Look at my 2/18/09 blog entry for my inventory list.
This is a list of all the things in my home that can aide me in my weight loss.
~Drink (8) 8oz. glasses water
~Exercise 3-4 x's a week
~Strength Training is Important!
~Get more sleep!
I'm not following any set program.
* Drink more water
*Eat less sugar
I believe losing weight has a lot to do with your attitude and your mindset. When I am not focusing on what I want to accomplish and just 'let' myself eat whatever, that is how I end up out of control all over again.
-44 Years Old
- 2 daughters, 3 sisters, married 17 years
-Struggled with weight issues most of my life
-Caffeine, Sugar & Chocolate are NOT my friends! :-(
I enjoy reading, social media, crafting, watching movies and being with my family.

Thank you for adding me as a friend! I would love to be buddies so thank you for reaching out. Reading your message made me laugh because I have been mostly off than on lately with SP but hoping to change as well. I am a full time working mom of three amazing kids. Two girls who are 9 and a boy who is 8. Life is crazy busy and I am trying to find a healthy balance in which I can take care of my family and also myself. I set alarms on my phone so that they go off at work to remind me to stop what I am doing and take a walk around the office complex. I started wearing a pedometer so I can see just how many (or how little) steps I am taking and try to beat the amount the following day. Taking things one day at a time. Thanks again for reaching out!

M&M's Thought Of The Day:
Fitness in is earned, not bestowed - a process, not a magic trick - an investment, not a miracle.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill.
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

A Great Day
"Today is a great day to be alive. The world is filled with positive possibilities, and those possibilities grow more numerous with each passing moment. Sure, there are challenges and disappointments and frustrations. And within those challenges, within those disappointments, are some of the greatest possibilities.
Today is a great day to be alive because today you can make things happen. You can set a goal, chart a course, take stock of your situation and use it to create new value. Pay no attention to those who claim to know how things will be. Your future is yours to determine, and this is the day to make it great.
You don't need anyone's permission to live with joy and fulfillment. You don't need to wait for certain circumstances to line up in a specific way. For today is a great day to be alive, to be productive, to be effective and to fulfill your best possibilities. And now is the moment to enthusiastically get busy making it all happen."-- Ralph Marston
