Today it is one year since I joined Spark People. I love it. I have not lost much weight but I have learned alot about health, nutrition, and life.
Both my husband and I do not eat any white flour, white sugar, white rice, white potatoes anymore. I do not drink sodas anymore either. I have increased my fruit, vegetable, and water intake. I have tried to exercise on a treadmill at least 10 minutes a day. This year I am also trying to read my Bible and pray every day. I have also started a journal notebook that I write in a few times a week. I am more aware of what goes into my mouth than ever before.
I feel good mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually. This year will be a better year. I have started to organize my house and my life. I am finally starting to do things for myself. The next thing to do is start a real exercise program. Now that the weather is beginning to warm up a little I want to start walking or riding my bicycle outside. I also want to get the DVD from here and start working on that. I have just ordered the new SparkPeople cookbook.
1 1/2 years ago when both my parents died prety suddenly, I was the executor and it has taken a toll on me. I have not talked about it much but I have sort of frozen and been at a standstill. I had moved to be close to them about 15 years ago so I see the house that I grew up in daily. My younger sister lives there now. I am confident that this past year has been a year of healing and now I can and will move on.
My husband and I have recently joined a new church and are making new friends. Life is good. I am ready to start my second year with SparkPeople with a zeal for life and health. 2012 will be a great year!
