MAY 2007 ~ DISCOVERED SPARKPEOPLE
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
SCAROUSEL1 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
I stumbled across SparkPeople by accident back in May of 2007 and I do believe it is one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me! I know this journey IS different for EACH person, but I started with drinking my 8 glasses of water a day and logging my food. Let me just say that logging my food was a HUGE eye opener... DANGER! DANGER! From there I moved on to exercise which for me consisted of walking, walking and yes, more WALKING. I am starting to seriously branch out in how I exercise... Kickboxing, Zumba, Spin and even Bootcamp!
THANK YOU SPARKPEOPLE FOR HELPING ME CHANGE MY LIFE!

Good to hear from you, I am fine I am currently on Unemployment as of January, I was burnt out and needed a rest from retail. I have my hopes on landing a local job here in Arlington. Other than just making sure I get my walks in daily and working around the house I am saying on track and with my hopes on Hubby finding a job on this side of the Pass as he is still in Kennewick working and staying at our other home.
He comes home most weekends however I will not let him come home when the snow is flying.
Hope you have a wonderful week.

Thanks for stopping by my page! I appreciate the encouragement!
Life is treating me good. I am logging my food most days. I don't like doing it but it sure helps. I do love when I log exercise and get to eat more=)
I am down four pounds for the month and hope to be down one more by the first.
The new dog has me out walking almost everyday which is good except that I skip the gym, after work, to get home in time to walk her before dark.
Now I should get up from the computer and get busy working toward my goals.
Have a great day and Spark on!
