Taking a Break
This is a blog about what I will be doing over the break. Well number 1:I will be coming in to chat to keep accountability going, I tend to go off path when left to my own devices! Those old habits start creeping back in, slow but sure. I hate to have to admit this but it is a fact, I need support and encouragement, I cannot seem to do it alone!
2:I need to log food, water and exercise, I need to know that I am not over calories, and nutrients, also a proper amount of exercise and water will keep me healthy!
3: I also need to do some fun things, do some outside activities , be involved with family and friends
4: I will be working on reaching Onederland by Sept 24th wish me luck lol!
Aloha ladies, going to enjoy some sun!

Our Task for the challenge is to write a blog about the best thing about my experience this round, or about the progress I made due to participation!
Well those that know me, know this round was a very difficult one, 2 surgeries back to back, awaiting a shoulder replacement, then a severe flare up with Diverticulitis, also pulled muscles in my abdomen..I swear someone put a curse on me!!!! What more could go wrong!
The one thing I am proud of is that I did not give up, I had to go to a crawl, but I still showed up everyday pain or no pain....that proves to me that I am indeed serious about applying myself, and moving ahead. I could do little or no exercise toward the end, but I could keep up on diet, and be there to "root" my teammates on! This round was a hard one, but I am happy to say I came out a couple of lbs lighter.
It helped so much to have my team mates behind me 100%, it was all the encouragement and support, that kept me coming in and doing what I could do!

I was sitting here today upset because I couldn't exercise, I am having some issues of late and Dr told me no exercise other than walking for Spark. I never thought I would see the day that I wanted to exercise, being a former couch potato this took me by surprise.I really missed my morning routine...I didn't realize how much a part of my life it had become.
I then marveled at far I have actually come with Spark, all the old bad habits I am conquering, My Non scale victories...A1C under control, cholesterol normal, blood pressure normal. My eating habits have changed drastically, no more junk foods, eating well balanced meals, lots of veggies, eating fruit, and drinking water.
I haven't been doing so great with weight loss, due to a couple of surgeries, and health issues, but I am down 13 lbs , and the other NSV"s has made this journey so worth it. I am getting a handle on my health, still have a ways to go, but with the Teams support and encouragement, I know I can surmount any hurdles put in my way!
This cheered me up, I have so much to look forward to, so I will be working on a plan for the next round!
