Hello all!! I just wanted to let all my friends know that I have changed my user name. While I assure you I'm still the same person, I need to reflect who I am now. So from this point on I will be CHRISTfiend because I love Christ and HE is my strength, instead of jewelry_lady who I was in 2008.

First of all let me say what a roller coaster of a day I have had! I started the day letting my homelife situation get me down. For the new dragons, long story short, Since last May when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I have received absolutely no support from my husband. To the point that at one point when I was called to go back to my mom's side (she use to live in TN, I live in IN) that he said if I went I might as well file for a divorce. So today, I let myself dwell in the fact that there doesn't seem to be an end in sight for this situation. So I self sabotaged with food. I also, started out the day thinking that I would just do the TNT for my team and just be done streaking. Then later after I had done the TNT, I decided to do just 10 min. on the bike to keep my streak going. At 9 min. my body was still willing to go so I said ok 15 min. At 15, I just kept going. Got to 20 and said I might as well do 30. I want you to know that even after all the self pity I had today my body was willing to do the work. I amazed myself. I guess I can say that exercise IS part of my life now even if it is for a short time. So now that the pity party is over, I'm going to try to focus on the things I can control and not let thethings I can't control control me!!!

Where do I see myself in 6 weeks? That is really a tough question. If I stay at my current routine, exactly where I'm at now or heavier. However, I AM going to change things. I restarted my journey to a healthier me today. I did a lot of upper body strength exercises today, worked on my core, strengthened my back, and did some cardio. The down side to my new start is that I overate today. But I won't let that defeat me. Tomorrow I WILL be in range, I will doing cardio again, I will work on my lower body, my core and my back. I will continue with this path until I am the person I want to be.
And just to make sure that I do what I say I'm going to do, I'm calling all my friends to keep me accountable. Rita, do you have that WWWN handy. You may have to get it out.
I know there will be days when I just don't want to do it, but I WILL SUCCEED because I AM STRONG, I AM DETERMINED, and I WILL SUCCEED.
