I've taken time to reflect on and to set meaningful and realistic goals. It will give me a clear path of where I am and where I'm headed.

I will post my goals on my fridge and on my bathroom mirror where I'll see them multiple times a day to keep myself focused and motivated.

I have created a supportive environment around me to increase my chances of success by removing most processed foods from my fridge and pantry, by telling my niece, Kara, my plan and setting up workout days with her, and by sharing my plan on my Spark page and blog. I will check in with Spark friends a few times each week to support them, and for their encouragement.

I will evaluate my goals monthly to see if I need to make any changes, and to reward my successes.

Boston is one of my favorite U.S. cities. Have fun on your trip! I was wanting to go to Paris this fall. I doubt that will happen, now.

I'm good. Trying to get back on track. I slipped pretty hard at the end of last year. Hope you're still doing well.

Could the walnuts be creating the bitter after taste in your smoothie? I think I need to try it :)

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. Sometimes I have to fake my confidence and enthusiasm until I make it. I'm definitely a "fake it till you make it" kind of person, but it really does work for me.

Thanks for being so supportive. It really helps!!
