For the past few years, I've been doing Sparkpeople, tracking my calories and exercise regularly and yoyoing up and down with my weight. Alright, mostly up. This year I turned 50 and I decided I want to change my life. Not that I am unhappy...my life is good...but I want...more! I'm pretty healthy (knock on wood!) and I'm gainfully employed (knock on wood again) and able to help my kids and my family when they need it. Which is great, and I feel awesomely blessed. But now that I've raised my kids and taken care of others all my life, I decided that I want some things for myself. One thing I decided I want to do is make beautiful things, paintings and other kinds of art -- but I couldn't get myself moving! So I took a great class and I plan to take another one. It helped! And the other thing I want is to look great and be in awesome shape -- and I just wasn't getting there on my own...so once again, I decided to reach out for help...and here I am! I think just the sole act of saying here in this space for others to see, "these are my goals" makes them more real and concrete. I am hoping this helps!
