A Healthier Lifestyle

I have been a SparkPeople member off-and-on for quite a while and have had success with losing a pound or two. I committed to changing my life and working towards a healthier lifestyle when I stepped on the scale and saw the numbers had creeped even closer to 200 pounds and my clothes were no longer fitting. I refuse to be the next larger size!

I am working on my health and fitness and am focused on making better food choices, exercising daily and improving my overall well-being.

Thank you for the running shoes to encourage me on my Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving! It was pretty neat - when the race started it was still partially dark and had just begun to snow. Downtown Detroit had pretty Christmas lights up to boot. Just an all around great experience! The parade was a little disappointing. Don't know if I missed too much of it doing the race, picking up checked bag/snacks, and changing clothes at the Cobo Center but the floats and character balloons were few and far between! I did get to see huge Kermit with a Christmas hat - it just made me want to see more, though! :)

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I was fortunate that my mother taught me to sew from a young age. There are lots of great tutorials online. It is never too late to learn something new! emoticon
