If You Are Tired of Starting Over.. Stop Giving Up...

A sentence I repeat to myself when I look in the mirror each morning. I did not have a weight issue before the age of 30. But life became more than I could imagine with events that changed my life - not for the better. Since then it has been a struggle with life with weight.. each obstacle conquered teaching me more. Some lessons had to be repeated and I am still learning. A work in progress. But I would rather keep moving, learning, trying, falling back, getting back on my feet, moving ahead ...

But I would rather keep moving, learning, trying, falling back, getting back on my feet, moving ahead and learning some more.. Than to ever just fall into that abyss and never even try. Tomorrow is always always.. a chance to be healthier, to learn more, to love and laugh more.. what I do today~will get me there.

My Goals:
My New Goals for 2012 - 2013:
-I will get to my healthy weight goal
-I am going to tandem skydive within this year (scared to death!)
-I am going to raft the Colorado River in the USA (whitewater rafting is one of my favorite things-have not gone for 9 years!)
-I am going to hot balloon in Kanaskis country
-I am going to go horseback riding on mountain trails before the end of this November (up high high in the mountains..I am afraid of heights!) :)
-I am going to go heli-hiking and do heli-yoga within this year
-I am going to travel to and hike Mt Kilimanjaro within 12-18 months
-I am going to achieve an ideal BMI and blood pressure number
-I am going to make sure I laugh every single day
-I will do one random act of kindness (anonymously) each week
-I will rejoin Habitat for Humanity and get building!
I will add to this list as I check one thing off.. not a bucket list but a LIFE list :)

My Program:
I have been following a combination of the Spark program and Weight Watchers and joined a gym near my house. As well I attend hot yoga 3 days a week & have some great dvds for days when the gym is not in the cards. I find that I get amazing support from Spark members, great ideas for recipes etc..and I like that with WW I only weigh in once a week-keeps me from worrying over daily fluctuations!

Personal Information:
My name is Sandi.. I have a really good sense of humor and I love to talk! I have a stubborn streak that I wish I could say applies to strong will power, but it doesn't... :) I try to be very positive, but have my down moments like every single person... I want to be healthy-plain and simple..and feel good about myself again :)

Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog! I also found weight became much more of an issue once I turned 30. No amount of exercise was shifting the pounds (as you read!) Keep up with sparkpeople, though. It really helped me.
