Finally Working It Like I Mean It

I love Sparkpeople! I've learned so much here about nutrition. But mostly, I've learnedthat I must get up when I fall down. No matter how many times I fall down . . . and . . . be consistent about getting up . . . and . . . probably most importantly -- without delay. I've wasted so much time starting the journey that I never really got on down the road far enough to make any meaningful progress. Progress that would keep me on the road till I reached my goal. I finally feel like I'm on ...

I've wasted so much time starting the journey that I never really got on down the road far enough to make any meaningful progress. Progress that would keep me on the road till I reached my goal. I finally feel like I'm on the road. My mind is right. I'm both amazed and ashamed that it took so long, but c'es la vie. I've accepted that there will be detours and that I'm not going to be riding in the fast lane. That's ok, I'll still get there and I'm so happy about it.

Happy Almost Easter!

Ever wonder where the easter bunny and easter eggs came from?

"The name “Easter” was likely derived from Eostre, the name of the Anglo-Saxon lunar goddess, as was as the name for the female hormone estrogen. Eostre’s feast day was held on the first full moon following the vernal equinox — a similar calculation as is used for Easter among Western Christians...Two of Eostre’s most important symbols were the hare (both because of its fertility and because ancient people saw a hare in the full moon) and the egg, which symbolized the growing possibility of new life. Each of these symbols continues to play an important role in modern celebrations of Easter."

And by the way, before diving into your easter basket this year you might want to take note of the following:
One Cadbury Easter Creme Egg (*yum*) is 150 calories, contains 6 grams of fat, 21g of sugar and only 1 gram of protein. Not so bad, right?
However, One Hard Boiled Egg (painted or unpainted) is approximately 70 calories (depending on the size), has 5 grams of fat, 1g of sugar, and 6 whopping grams of protein. Not only that, but did you know that eggs help boost brain health, reduces inflammation, provides our body with much needed Choline, promotes weight loss, helps with heart health, improves your cholesterol profile, prevents blood clots, and protects eyesight? Whew! Lets see our little chocolate cream egg do all that! So what are you waiting for? Release your skinny, creative artist and get colouring those easter eggs!

And no, I'm not on the Egg Council... :)

Hey Done Girl -- Happy Spring!! To celebrate the season, I would like to wish you a brand new start, never-ending moments of poise and balance and a joyful tip over on the scale to the side of light. I wish you a new dawn, an eternal youth and a morning star to wish on. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may they melt away with the winter and may you be granted a time of new light and a new life where your wildest dreams come true.

If you ever need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP six month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received with not only weight loss but life in general. ~ Michelle
