To Begin Anew From Here

2011 was a year filled with far too many physical and emotional challenges. I spent more than half of the year recovering from foot surgeries, which meant I was immobile more than I was mobile. Years ago that would have broken me - now, I accept it for the challenge it truly is. You don't discover what you're truly made of by tackling the feast-beast and overcoming the battle of the scale and achieving physical fitness once.

2011 was a year filled with far too many physical and emotional challenges. I spent more than half of the year recovering from foot surgeries, which meant I was immobile more than I was mobile. Years ago that would have broken me - now, I accept it for the challenge it truly is. You don't discover what you're truly made of by tackling the feast-beast and overcoming the battle of the scale and achieving physical fitness once. To truly learn what drives you once (or in my case several times) you have to rise again like a phoenix from the ashes to achieve the goal again. That's the point at a which you know with every fiber of your being that you want to be healthy and whole whatever the cost.

So, I'm back - to prove to myself that this is real and this is what is necessary for my best physical self. I worked out this morning for the first time post-op and though my foot is sore - this is the worst it will be on this leg of the journey.

SparkPoints: 76,474

Fitness Minutes: 59,562

My Goals:
1) Glorifying Father God in everything I do in and through this physical temple I have on loan from Him while I'm on this earth...

2) Getting stronger and healthier as each year passes...

3) Steering clear of old patterns and habits of compulsive eating, dieting, and exercising...

4) Encouraging and empowering others on this wellness journey one day at a time...

My Program:
All things in moderation...since I'm just 3 months post-op and my left foot controls everything. I'm starting 2012 with the January SP Jumpstart Challenge and just 2 12 minute exercise sessions each day. I'm eating a clean vegetarian diet with lots of soups and plenty of fresh fruits and veggies.

Personal Information:
My name is Anita, and I'm from Columbus, Ohio. Over the past decade, I have maintained a 100+ pound weight reduction, earned both a Master's and Bachelor's degree and managed to continue aging gracefully. I am honestly excited about what my 40's will bring into my life.

Other Information:
I love to read, particularly anything related to spirituality, health, fitness, and nutrition.

Thank you so much for commenting on my smoothie blog and sharing a few of your tips with me. It is wonderful that you are drinking green smoothies now :) I was a vegan for years and drank green smoothies almost everyday .. always playing with new recipes and finding ones I liked best :) I do like to change my smoothie ingredients around, too. This blog was just showing the smoothies I made for a challenge I am in this week. I am glad that you reminded me to chew my smoothies!! That is good to remember :) Have a wonderful week.. and thanks again for stopping by!
