The Path To A Healthier Me

Welcome to my Spark-Page! I'm glad you've decided to take the time to come visit with me.

I'm 42 yrs old, an at-home-mom of 2 girls, Ages 11 & 7 yrs old, married for 15 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 ...
Welcome to my Spark-Page! I'm glad you've decided to take the time to come visit with me.

I'm 42 yrs old, an at-home-mom of 2 girls, Ages 11 & 7 yrs old, married for 15 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!

My Program:
I'm not following any set program.
* Drink more water
*Eat less sugar
*MOVE more!

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.
