I sat here watching the ball come down & thinking,this moment is a beginning of a fresh start,with more goals to accomplish, reaching out to spark friends to encourage us along the way. I am so delighted when I hear from my Spark friends I heard about Sparks from Robin Roberts on Good Morning America . I have never felt so blessed to have heard about Sparks. When I am working out & maybe not really wanting to at that moment I just think that my Spark folks are right there beside me working out so I plug on because I know you are all there for me. Happy & Healthy New Year to all!!!!

I had off work today, my husband & I went out for breakfast we have not done that for awhile. Then we went shopping, one of the places we stopped was the Cracker Barrel they had 70% off Christmas items ,bought some nice things. I bought a real neat black hat. ( My favorite hat is the one I bought when I was in Israel it is a beret I love it . When I was in the old city of Jerusalem the shop keeper he put it on for me ( there is a correct way to wear it.) Then this afternoon went to dentist for cleaning. then I went to my first YOGA class in years ., That was an hour, the stretches felt so good, then I went swimming,but I only went for 25 minutes was exhausted. I then went to the steam room for 10 minutes. ( I love the steam room feels so refreshing ) I felt good about going to the classes & swimming. When I came home my husband was in the process of making a light house for our yard for the summer. His workmanship is excellent. He had the radio on so I danced around to keep moving. Take care keeping moving,drink your water, watch your portions & we can all do this together

I went to Zumba classes & it was not easy, to get my self going.. However; I pushed forward,exhausted when done, but felt mentally great because I went . Another accomplishment I drank 8 glasses of water. I drank a glass of water at 6:00 am this morning & drank in intervals throughout the day.I need to take each day one at a time.

Last night I had plans of going to Zumba classes the next day. I came home from work at 4:00 pm & my bones were aching from the bitter cold. It was so nice & warm in my home I thought no I am not going back out in that cold. I sat here for awhile on the Spark site, I started remembering the promise I made to myself about getting healthier. I grabbed the phone & called my friend Carol, I said " you ready" That is all I had to say to her I changed clothes, grabbed my water bottle kissed my husband goodbye & ran out the door. We had a good work out & I must say I sure felt better mentally that I did go, I know if I still sat here I would hate my reasoning of why I did not go. I started today keeping track of my food intake. I need to also really work on the water intake. I am great at making all kinds of excuses of not working out. When I fail to come through of what I want to do. I feel like a failure then, but I know if I was a real failure I would not be starting over today.

I can buy new clothes, have my hair highlighted, with a new style, have my teeth whitened, and have others say,'Oh you look great" but on the inside not feeling all that new like the materialistic things I have hanging on my body. When I was in school doing the pole vault jump I did not go to the starting line & bolt forward. I stood there for a bit visualizing how every part of my body was going to perform to make it over the line. I need to take my exercise my eating habits, my negative thinking & visualize the outcome of a healthier me. Stepping up to the line & actually seeing the outcome. Today I start 12/09/2010 I need to give accountability to myself. I am posting my measurements ( bust 40 1/2 'in. waist 39 in. stomach 41 in. hips 39 in. thigh 25 in. I joined the YMCA a few months ago in my community but only going once a week and making all kinds of excuses not going like I should, I am too tired , a bad day at work, need to hurry home and make supper for my husband, feeling guilty because I would spend extra time away from my husband, ( he encourages me to go) (it is me making that excuse not him) I make unhealthy food choices, I started out doing good with measuring my food portions that lasted a few weeks. I have never blogged before so I think this will also help me. I ate 3 peanut butter cookies for breakfast,I felt mentally sick about it after I indulged with that morning cup of coffee, I went on some blogging sites & said this is it I need to do this. Where do I see myself one year to this date posted. A healthier me, an attitude changed about working out. My attitude needs adjusting my whole way of thinking about this body & life that was given to me.
