For The Last Time

So here's the deal. It is now three years since I first seriously started using Spark to become a healthier person. I lost 42 pounds over the course of 5 months and was feeling pretty good. I even managed to run my first 5K and not die. Then some stuff happened...nothing horrible, I just started putting other things first and abandoned my eating and exercise plan.

So here's the deal. It is now three years since I first seriously started using Spark to become a healthier person. I lost 42 pounds over the course of 5 months and was feeling pretty good.

I also found that my work was suffering because I was putting too much time into exercising. So now, having found all of the pounds I originally lost, I want to see if I can learn how to create a balance in my life. I also need to find some intrinsic motivation, because relying on an outside event resulted in my giving up entirely. But it's time for a fresh start. And hopefully, this truly will be the last time I have to say that.
