Finding My Bliss

“If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.” (Walt Disney)
***

I started working toward becoming a healthier version of me on January 18, 2013. At that time, my goal was to consistently use the gym membership I've been paying for and to curb my mindless snacking. I've never been a huge binge eater. But I am definitely the girl who would forego a normal dinner to eat an entire bag of Doritos.

I started working toward becoming a healthier version of me on January 18, 2013. At that time, my goal was to consistently use the gym membership I've been paying for and to curb my mindless snacking. I've never been a huge binge eater. But I am definitely the girl who would forego a normal dinner to eat an entire bag of Doritos.

After losing 18 pounds and then hitting a three-week plateau, I decided to jump in and start using some more of the Spark tools. I had only been using the weight tracker, but thought why not go for it and see what else I can find to motivate me. I haven't lost my motivation; I just figured some more couldn't hurt. So for some reason, I hit the "reset" button and now I have 11 pounds to go.

I'm trying not to get sucked in to the message boards. I believe there is a wealth of information to be found there, but previous message board experiences have not been kind to me so I probably won't be posting there. Just a personal preference for my own sanity. I'm a shy, quiet person and tend to sacrifice face-to-face interaction for online conversation and I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone... which includes meeting new people and going on new adventures.

I am walking the Color Run on August 17th and my goal weight is to be at 135 at that point. I have since modified by goal weight to 130, but original goal of 135 on 8/17 remains.

"In terms of days and moments lived, you'll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you're just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

Hello! The weekend is upon us, Yay! Sounds like you have some nice time planned with friends.....some thing fun for you to look forward to.

I've enjoyed some cooler temperatures these past couple of days....tomorrow the hot weather returns. I'll be slaying away at client work this weekend, helping 2 clients get prepared for audits. Still, I will find time to walk and plan out my meals.....my motivation is very high right now so I've got to ride the wave while I can.

Have a terrific evening.
