Like a phoenix from the ashes

It's been 8 years since I was first introduced to SP, and at least 2 since I stopped by to check in with my friends. Life has been crazy and amazing and challenging and heartbreaking and lovely and rewarding and quite frankly, everything that life should be. Looking over my pictures on my page I see an amazing life that has unfolded. Looking in the mirror, I see the phoenix rising from the ashes yet again. Looking in the rear view mirror, I recognize and acknowledge my successes along the path. ...
It's been 8 years since I was first introduced to SP, and at least 2 since I stopped by to check in with my friends. Life has been crazy and amazing and challenging and heartbreaking and lovely and rewarding and quite frankly, everything that life should be. Looking over my pictures on my page I see an amazing life that has unfolded. Looking in the mirror, I see the phoenix rising from the ashes yet again. Looking in the rear view mirror, I recognize and acknowledge my successes along the path.

My favorite human empowerment, motivational speaker is the late Earl Nightingale. Until I stumbled upon his works, his teachings...I measured MY success by the world's yardstick and always found myself woefully lacking. His definition? "Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal." Success is essentially moving toward that which you desire that will add value to your corner of the world. It doesn't matter how many times you stumble, trip, fall, lie down to rest...what matters is that your goal is ingrained in you so deeply that you get up again and again and again and keep moving forward.

I've got lots to share about the past few years of my life. Hoping to blog on a regular basis to share all of the insights I have been blessed to add to my toolbox.

Member Since: 3/30/2006

SparkPoints: 76,585

Fitness Minutes: 59,592

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.

Avocado shake:
1/2 very ripe avocado
1/2 to 1 whole ripe banana
1.5 cups almond milk
1 scoop vanilla or chocolate protein powder (optional)
If you put in chocolate protein powder it would come out like a chocolate milk shake. I also added cacau nibs today yummy!!

It was the Burn the Fat, Feed the muscle Holiday challenge. I didn't get the overall, but the Most Transformed female over 40 award. In 7 weeks I lost 9 lbs of fat and went from 25% to 15 % body fat. It was hard to get overall because a lot of people started out with more fat to lose than I did. I think I did pretty well, especially because it was over the Holidays.
