On Sunday my husband I & went on a motorcycle ride, & a picnic. We went to the mountains there was still 14 inches of snow & 16 inches of ice on the lake. My husband started the grill up we each had a hamburg, I brought along macaroni salad, baked beans ,chips, oranges, bananas tea/water. I had everything measured out in portions . Last year our plates would have been heaping full. The only ones to join us were the little birds hopping around looking for a hand out of a crumb or two. The fishermen were dragging their drills across the frozen lake to catch a fish or two for their meal later on . We went for a walk in the cold crisp air. We then packed up my husband ask if he could have an ice cream so we stopped at the ice cream parlor. The waitress could not believe when she saw our bike, then to her surprise she gasp when I told her where we went on a picnic ,she just shook her head, so my husband said we were ordering ice cream to go along with the cold out side. We then rode throughout the valley with each twist & turn in the road the cold air stung our cheeks even with the shields covering our faces. The next day at work was so hectic ,but I took a moment or two to reflect on what my husband & I did on Sunday it brought a warm smile to my face then I carried on with my work duties, & it was not so bad after all.

I am still struggling with a family issue,but I am slowly coming around in my mind that I cannot change what has happened, but I can change my way of thinking about it. I have since really got into kick boxing,along with my Zumba I do them back to back Mon. & Wed, nights. Then every other day work out on 11 machines at the Ymca. I power walk 4 miles or more also. I have since lost an inch off my thunder thighs !!!! My husband after 27 years finally started to walk with me as a way to start being healthy,before we just took leisurely strolls. I now measure our food out, except for an occasional binge, which is rare. My friend Carol is also my motivator about going to the Y. Keeping busy with my work outs also helps me keep my mind in check with how much pressure I am under with the family situation. I also know having my husband in on this has meant a lot to me . He has since lost 13 pounds in 3 weeks. I have learned to set small goals instead of looking at this big chuck of getting there. Instead of saying I want to lose 20 pounds by July I am now saying okay I want to lose 4 pounds in 5 weeks or inches. It is more realistic to me & works for me. I started to do the same with my house work. I will only look at say one room & say okay today I will only do the closets, the next day the dresser drawers, then half the room dusting one day & then finishing up the next day. I was forever looking at the whole picture of any thing & becoming over whelmed. I accomplish more now than I ever did.

I am going through an emotional crises within my soul & heart. It is dealing with my beloved Nephew he made a wrong choice, & he also thinks his life is over.I feel like I am dying inside. I have no children,but he told us we are like his second parents. I am screaming inside of me. I went to the gym today & threw up. I cannot eat right. I feel like I am being smothered inside of me. He is only 17. i feel like my life is stopping. I worked out today for the first time since last Friday then became sick from worry. I cannot handle this

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
