20 Days to Go!!!

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

So I'm super excited - my vacation is in 20 days and my passport came today! I've never really taken a "real" vacation before, other then Disneyland and Vegas once. And on top of that, I haven't taken any time off from work since LAST August. I so desperately need this. But this time I'm going on a cruise! I'm so unbelievably excited that I can hardly stand it! I feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve. I'm working towards my goal of 217 by then, and I have 8 lbs to go (that will be 30 lbs lost). I've been feeling great, and woke up this morning feeling incredibly energized. I can't wait to get off work today and go to the gym. WooHoo!

A Japanese Proverb

Saturday, September 25, 2010

I saw this quote on another website today, and it really hit me. No matter how many times I may fall down, as long as I get back up and dust myself off, I will succeed at my goals! I hope this inspires someone else the way it has me.

"Fall seven times, stand up eight." - Japanese proverb

Took my car to the mechanic this morning for a noise from my tire. Wheel bearing is failing and it's going to cost me over $400 emoticon

  


I heart SP!

Friday, September 17, 2010

Happy Friday everyone! I was just sitting here at work browsing the blogs and message boards, and thought to myself how thankful I am for the SP website and community, and the friends I've made. I've been here since June, and I have lost about 20 lbs. The last month or so I haven't been very motivated and not eating all that great. But in spite of this, I made myself log on every day and browse the site. Reading others' blogs has been a huge inspiration for me, whether they be positive blogs or about struggles someone may have. It's made me realize that we all are all human, we all fall down sometimes, but we have to just pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off, and get back on the bandwagon! So I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone out there. Just because someone may not comment on your blog doesn't mean it's not being read and having a positive impact on fellow Sparkers! This inspiration has gotten me motivated again - I bought (very comfy) new workout shoes and started back up at the gym this week and I'm feeling great. Hugs to everyone!
