Staying strong and healthy!

Hello sparkfriends!
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 ...

The beach sounds delightful. I remember the lovely color of the ocean in Greece. I hope your daughter's rash is better.
I am glad for the summer break. I can feel myself relaxing and focusing on my health. Thanks for your goodie.

Elle - thank you so much for the running shoes!!!

You know, it took me a long time to be ok with that feeling of being out of breath. It used to scare me a lot and I had to learn to feel the difference between breathing hard because I'm WORKING hard and not being able to breath because something's wrong. It also helps a lot if I match my breath to my footfalls - keeps my breath steady and makes me feel in control, even when it's hard.

Man, you're making me want to visit Greece now! Do you mind if I ask where in Greece you live? On the coast or inland? If you don't want to share that, I totally understand emoticon . I wish I could add Greece to my list of languages to learn - I speak Italian, and some French and German, but the idea of a whole new alphabet scares me a little! It always sounds soooo beautiful when I hear it spoken.

Amazing what a far reach SparkPeople has!!! Have a wonderful day my friend emoticon

I added you as a Sparkfriend. I have been following you for awhile and reading your blog. Thought it was about time. Wish I could read Greek so I could follow your personal blog.

Hey girl - Elle, right?! (I was browsing your Spark Page emoticon ) I'm so glad to have met you here, too! Your blogs are making me think in some wonderful ways!

So, I noticed your Spark Page says you live in Greece - is that where you are from? Or are you an expat? I've been to Italy a couple of times - my great grandparents came from Sicily - and Greece was just a hop, skip, and a jump away, but I never made it over there. Pictures always look so incredibly breathtaking!!

I hope you are having a fabulous week emoticon !
