I've been a SparkPeople member for one year!! It's been a long year that went by quickly, if that makes sense. When I started here with SP I knew I found something great! This website gave me the information & tools I needed to get me started and continue on my journey. The other members here gave me the support I needed throughout the year. Thank you SP and Sparklers!
But I can't give all the credit to SP. I've seen success and setbacks, but never quit. I've had to change things up and rearrange my Lifestyle. It was me spending the time on my fitness. I had to proportion my meals and count my calories.
And you know what, the hard work paid off because a few months ago I accomplished my goal! Since then I've settle at a comfortable weight right below that goal. And everyday is still work. Why...? Because this is a Lifestyle Change!
My point is, Sparklers, is that you can't give up!! You have to do things you never thought you would, or could, do! You have to find your groove! And DON'T QUIT!
One year ago today I never had imagined I could accomplish so much for myself, but I have. And everyday, for the rest of my Life, I will continue to accomplish my goal!

We leave this weekend to go to Disney World for my daughter's 5th Birthday!! I am so excited! Just as excited as she is! I can't wait to see the look on her face, hear her beautiful little laugh, and watch her do her Happy Dance when we walk toward the Disney Castle for the first time.
It's going to be warm there which is a much needed break from this Northern cold weather. There will be sunshine (a little rain), warm air, and blue skies.
I know we'll have a great time but I'm a little nervous about being away from my daily routine. I'll be doing plenty of walking but my usual workout has to stay at home. We're taking our laptop and I'll be able to log into SparkPeople so hopefully I'll be able to catch time for a few videos to keep on track. I've gotten really good at watching my calorie intake but I'm worried I'm going to have a hard time because we aren't doing a meal plan.
Moderation Is The Key!

On Saturday mornings my oldest daughter has dance class. The morning is usually chaotic for me as I struggle to wake up, make breakfast, straighten the house, and get both the Girls together to leave the house (with the oldest ready for dance). I don't take much time to get myself together. I potty, brush my teeth, put my hair back in a ponytail, and well...I stay in my pajamas. No shower, no make-up, barely remember to put on some deodarant.
Well, I'm relieved that today has been different. I have been feelin so good about myself that things are running much smoother today! And I'm DRESSED! Make-up, a little more effort toward my hair, and I'm put together. The Girls will be put together in a few minutes but I just had to announce that I made myself somewhat of a priority this morning!
