Finally! I am back on Spark and feeling inspired again. Internet has been sketchy the past few months but none the less I have tried to say healthy during that time. New goals starting now are to lose 30 pounds before December, buy a bikini and feel good about it :), drink more water, walk every day and remember to do something relaxing each day.
A couple updates since the last time I posted: my husband and I have remodeled our bathroom - all on our own and are very proud of the results (what a workout!), meeting and hanging out with new friends, and the most exciting: we bought a dog! She has been a great addition to our family and she helps motivate me everyday to get up and moving, first thing; regardless of how I feel she still wants and has to go for a walk so this has been helpful in setting a new fitness goal. Thanks Layla! :)
I am studying for my licensing exam as a marriage and family therapist which should be done this week. This has definately added stress to the daily life but overall know it will all work out and God doesn't put in front of us what we can't handle. Some days it's easier to give the advice and make suggestions for how people can be healthier in mind, body and spirit instead of taking it in myself.
Finally the new inspiration this year to reach my above goals is I am taking my husband to Vegas for his 30th birthday - if that's not motivation I don't know what will be! We're going with a couple who are also working hard at wellness and we're all encouraging each other - this truly does help when you have support from others doing it with you.
