September Resolutions

Saturday, September 01, 2012

"September resolutions ask only that we be open to positive change."
S. Ban Breathnach
This will be my focus for the month. I love September! The cooler, less humid days, the changing foliage (I live in MA) and the Fall Season! Both my birthday and anniversary are in September. I joined SP 7/16 and have logged in daily. Some days I do better than others when it comes to food and lifestyle choices but I have seen a positive change overall. I will challenge myself to get in some more exercise each day. I need to do a better job at planning and bringing food to work. I will continue to try to keep the stress levels at my job manageable and be mindful of the time spent 'at the office'. Thanks for all your support, inspiration, and great suggestions as we all continue our journey to success!

    Well, I have to tell you......I like what I've read and we have a lot in common. I too, love the month of September. I never did like it that much when I had to always go to school after Labour Day but those days no longer exist since I am retired from working so I appreciate this month for all of the same reasons.

Beautiful month to start fresh with a new season....cooler weather, colourful foilage, and summer seems to wind down to look forward to fall.

I've also logged in daily since I joined. I can't be without my daily SparkPeople fix. LOL!

I love this site! And I love SparkPeople people!!!!

Will continue to see how you're doing!

Hugs, Irene emoticon

Determined!

Monday, August 13, 2012

Well, this is my last week of having extra time for ME! Next week I am returning to work after having been off on an FMLA. I am an RN working in a FT management position.
I found SP during this time away from the high pressured, stressful, ever changing healthcare environment where I will be spending my days again. And even though I will not have nearly as much time I am DETERMINED to focus on my goals and achieve success in my weight loss by following healthy choices one day at a time. Have logged in to SP daily since I found the site. Am currently at Level 7 with 4,037 points! I am certainly making better choices, fitting exercise into my day and overall paving the way to new behaviors. I will stay focused and remember that the ME time must not go away! My loving husband of almost 39 years (yikes!) is very supportive as well as my three grown children. The SP network is hugely supportive, inspiring and will continue to be where I will visit daily for my needed dose of motivation!
Thank you to all as we journey together!

Weigh-in day

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Stepping on the scale with anticipation but hope and so happy to be down 4 lbs! These are the first pounds lost in this journey of many. But unlike in times past when I would then want to grab a 'food treat' to celebrate, I am going to walk today and make healthy choices. There are delicious raspberries and blueberries awaiting me for breakfast to add to some cottage cheese. The farmer's market is today and will plan to shop for some fresh produce! Thank you SP, today I am grateful!

Day #15, feeling grateful!

Monday, July 30, 2012

Well, today marks day #15 since I first logged onto the SP website and I am grateful I did! Two weeks ago I was unsure of what it was all about but took a chance and feel I got lucky! In these two weeks I have earned over 1,000 spark points and now am on level 5 but more importantly have gotten the kick start I needed to get on track with more mindful eating and a desire to include some exercise into my daily routine. Wednesday I will weigh myself and feel confident the scale will show some loss, albeit small but in the right direction! I am remembering to be kind to myself and everyone else and for this I will find the joy in life that I am searching for!

It's a good day!

Friday, July 27, 2012

Woke early and could not get back to sleep but got up and decided to get some things done! By 9:00 had put out the trash, done a few errands and then took a wonderful walk on the beach for 45 minutes! So grateful!
