: A reminder for every day from now on.
Let's dream big, dear sparkfriends!
My happy place!
NUOVAELLE is a SparkPeople Motivator!
If you're just passing by, welcome to you, too!
This is just a tiny place on a corner of Sparkland where Eleni (that's me!) began her journey into the world of healthy living more than five years ago. And this page became a shelter for dreams and hopes, successes and failures, joys and hard times.
I came here to lose weight. And I did! But this seems so unimportant compared to what I found. New friends, a love for exercise, a passion for writing, a talent in cooking and above all...
... I found myself!
85 kilos - DONE!
85 kilos - DONE!
80 kilos - DONE!
75 kilos - DONE!
71 kilos (healthy BMI) - I have to get back to it...
67 kilos - elusive!
-The word DIET does NOT belong to my vocabulary.
-Healthy food choices as close as possible to the principles of clean eating.
-Exercise at least 5 times a week. (Kickboxing, Yoga, Strength Training, Running)
- Walk, walk, walk as much as I can and as far as I can!
-Never forget that this is FOR LIFE!
My name is Eleni but all my Sparkfriends call me Elle. I live in Greece. I'm a full-time mom, a blogger and an eternal dreamer!
If you love nature (especially forests and mountains), if you like taking photographs (especially landscapes), if you love books (especially mystery, fantasy and dystopian novels), if you enjoy baking (especially making surprise birthday cakes) and if you are a dedicated mom, we're probably friends! We just don't know it yet!

“Go for broke, my friends. Straighten your spine when you step to the podium. Trust your own tongue. Believe that your weary legs will hold you until you reach the finish line. And reach it you will if you give it your all. Fall if you must, crawl if you must, but don’t you dare give up or give in until you’ve made it to the end. For at the end is where your great reward will be to begin anew. A new chance. A new life. A new you.”

Thank you so much Elle for your lovely note! It looks like the floods are finally receeding, I can't wait for it all to be over, it is scary and sad.
How are you doing? Sending lots of hugs your way!!!

hope all is well, agree spring came & went quickly - though we are smack in the middle of summer here in Sacramento, it's been 100 deg.
