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. 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 ...
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.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Because today's so special
it really wouldn't do,
to send one simple birthday wish
to last the whole year through...
So this wishes happy moments,
a day when dreams come true,
and a year that's filled with all the things
that mean the most to you.
Happy Birthday!

1 HAPPY SPIRIT
