Working on my journey to a new healthier me

Hello fellow Sparkers! I have been absent from Spark for awhile and thought I'd jump back on. To be honest, the fitnesspal app works so my easier in my life to track calories, but I miss the support of SparkPeople. It is my goal to check in at least 3 times a week.
I have been on a roller coaster of ups and downs over the last few years and have never been able to stick with it. The time is now! 2014 will be my year!

I'm working on my Master's research (as I type this, in fact), so I'm super stressed out! I was at 205.4 this morning. I did have a good week though. 5/7 workouts and got my 10,000 steps 6/7 days. Nutrition was only great 1 day though, so I know where I need to focus my efforts. I know we will reach our goals - however long it may take!

That really derailed your plans for summer - but how wonderful that you stepped up to the plate to help family! It's Monday & it's also a new month, so today is the perfect day to start a new goal. I'm 205.0 this morning. Time to stop making excuses & get with it! I want to be 180 when school starts in a month and half. It's a tough goal, but I know I can do it if I quit the excuses and do the work. Try to get some rest for yourself with the kids around :)

Hello! How much are you loving summer break?! :) I am happy with my 5/7 workouts last week. I took almost 19,000 steps yesterday. Eating wasn't good though, so I maintained 201.8. I'll just keep pushing this week & never give up!

Not a great week, but not awful. I bought a FitBit to track my steps. I've been over 10,000 almost every day. I was even over 15,000 one day. I'm at 201.8 this morning. I have a great feeling about this week. Let's hit it hard, girl! :)
