A new beginning

Each time I start again I initially feel like a failure...but the failure would be in never starting again. SO...here we go! It has been a great first month of better choices, and I am proud to have accomplished that much considering I had a horrible cold that kept me down for about a week. I persevered. I am still moving in the right direction. Disappointments will come, that is for sure, it is all about how you choose to deal with those situations. I choose me!

SparkPoints: 5,690

Fitness Minutes: 1,871

My Goals:
Improve my bloodwork results, continue to modify my routine to work around obstacles to my health, wellbeing, and weight loss.

My Program:
My husband and I have started this month making small changes, achievable goals that we can easily accomplish one day at a time. No eating after 8pm, no alcohol, exercise at least three times per week, 20 minutes per session. No meals out except for one time per week, unless we have a work-related or family-related social engagement. Sleep at least 6 hours per night. We are only doing this for one month, and we are close to the end of that month. We will look at our plan and adjust as appropriate and keep on going for next month!

Personal Information:
My husband and I are making some changes together so we can work toward living a longer life together. We have two kids and two crazy dogs. We work together at my family's business selling commercial kitchen equipment. I love crafting, spending time with my kids and husband and making jewelry and prayer beads.

Other Information:
My two dogs are the absolute best...we have a Corgi who is the caregiver and protector and we have a Pekingese-Poodle who is all dog..likes to play, likes to get dirty and is very silly. My stepchildren's mother lost her battle with breast cancer in 2007 and now they are with us full time. They are wonderful, well-adjusted children and I am proud to the mom-figure in our house. We are survivors.

I started making prayer beads some years ago and have some of my work on ETSY. www.etsy.com/shop/sacredstrandsbycarol/

I'm so excited that you've integrated such a lovely and centering morning ritual into you life. I used to do something very similar, and I really need to revitalize my morning yoga/prayer/meditation...Thanks for the inspiration!
Keep up the good work, my friend, and check in when you can. I have been on and off, due to a crazy schedule, too - so I get it.
And you're right emoticon
