The Past, Present and Future

2008 is ending with:
1. my blood pressure under control without meds.
2. the back pain gone most of the time.
3. being 60 pounds lighter than when I started with Spark in 2008.
4. feeling 100 years younger.

My 2009 Goals:
To stay with Spark!
To be heathier at the end of 2009 than I am at the start.
To continue to unclutter my life.
To take one day at a time.
To live every day as if it were my last.

I haven't included how I plan on achieving these goals. Instead I wanted to include what I had written when I started in 2008. I don't want to forget where I was and how far I have come!

In 2008 my page title was: Sheltielady loses it, hopefully
Then I wrote:
Hi, I am a 62 year old Alabama gal. I raise & show Shetland Sheepdogs as well as show secretary for some dog shows. I hurt my back, then had a hysterectomy now I find myself very overweight. My BMI says obese. (ugh) Show season starts in November so I have made my goal to lose 50 lbs. before November. I will need your prayers!

UPDATE: As of 8/30/08 My BMI no longer says obese.
My original goal was to lose 50 pounds. I knew I needed to lose more but truthfully never thought that I would lose even that 50. Well that goal has been met. I have reset my goal and am out to get the last 20 off too. I know now that I CAN do it.
UPDATE: November saw 60 pounds gone and my being pretty happy with being 140 pounds again. I am still working on losing more but I am in no hurry. Becoming fitter has become more improtant than what the scale says.

To get my blood pressure down and to help my hips be able to do there job without pain.



11/03/08 UPDATE:

My BP is down & I am no longer in pain. Now my goal is to keep this up. i still have a few pounds I would like to lose in order to look better but it is no longer a situatuon of lose it or die.

Praise the LORD!

My Program:
I am tracking my food & I love that Sparks keeps track of the sodium for me.



I am keeping active. I vary me exercise to fit my new life. Some days it is the gym, some workouts at home and some it is running around the dog show ring. I so wanted to be able to run around that ring when I first started Spark and now there is nothing to stop me.

Thank-you for your comment on my blog. It is nice to know that we are not alone in our struggles to maintain our health while in the unhealthy world of dog shows...face it, stress and negative energy plus all that crappy dog show food and long hours on the road. A recipe for unhealthy if there ever was one. We will find our way through this...we will :-)
