A little spark in my life

It''s time to get back in motion. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 5 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. Whatever it is, I want to be healthy. The past two years have been rough. I have lost ground with my weight and my physical condition. It''s time to spark! With that in mind, I am going to actively participate in the 5% summer challenge. This time I am On the Awesome A team. 5% Challenge goals 1. I will eat three ...
It''s time to get back in motion. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 5 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. Whatever it is, I want to be healthy. The past two years have been rough. I have lost ground with my weight and my physical condition. It''s time to spark! With that in mind, I am going to actively participate in the 5% summer challenge. This time I am On the Awesome A team. 5% Challenge goals 1. I will eat three healthy meals and record each thing I eat. 2. I will choose healthy snacks. 3. I will exercise at least 20 minutes each day. 4. I will record my efforts on my team page. 4. I will encourage my teammates by visiting their pages and blogs. I am in a constant battle to keep my weight down. I have been a yo-yo dieter since forever. Right now I''m just trying to get back to my first "got-to-lose" weight almost 40 years ago. Losing hasn''t been the problem. Getting my mind set is usually where I first get stuck. Once I''m in, I''m all in and the weight comes off! The problem: I don''t keep it off. I quit writing down my food and making healthy food choices. I love chocolate, fried foods, pastries, cookies . . . and I like baking. When I didn''t have something yummy to eat, I made it. SparkPeople has solved most of my problems if I will just keep on using the services offered. I like all of the help offered by SparkPeople website. The community here is very supportive and encouraging. I have a wonderful family--my parents and all of my brothers, my husband, children, grandchildren. I want to keep healthy and be around for a long time. I''m glad I''ve added a little spark to my life!

emoticon Today's motivational quote is by Denis Waitley:

"Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.:

So, here's wishing you appreciation of your two precious assets today, before they become depleted. Have a fabulous day filled with energy and good choices. emoticon Stay Focused! emoticon because you are emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my Spark Page. I am so glad you and Tom made an effort to come to our little get together. Both Norm and I enjoyed chatting with you and Tom! We had a busy weekend celebrating the 4th but now I'm ready to get back to normal and work hard on my weight once again!
