OOps I forgot i'm suppose to be starting fresh and having an on point day, week, month. I have been slipping lately. So today A friend and I decided this was it. A new beginning and a new mindset. I"m so blessed to have a "buddy" on this journey. I so wish we lived closer to one another to really push each other but it helps to know I can talk to her about most anything and that she understands when I have a "off" day. which I may add has been a lot of the days lately. I just can't get my mind into this. I have set a time span of my daughters wedding which is May seventh to reach my goals. but I seem to have forgotten that part. This weekend I did so bad that I didn't sleep well last night. Not from guilt from overdoing it with junk. So today my friends is a new day. I have the tools at my finger tips, I must now use them. No more playing I need to see a change on the scales this week.
Yeah I know the scales don't determine my success but after seven weeks of no change..........well you can see where that would mean a bunch and maybe get me back in the game. I seem to have lost the drive to succeed. I guess when you have do many telling you that you don't need to lose anymore, your small enough, and the one I hate " how much more do you need to lose? ". You hear this enough and then you begin to think, maybe i'm ok, maybe i'm small enough. I don't want "enough" I want the prize at the end of the rainbow. So today my spark friends I vow to work this program, I won't just earn points I will do the work that is needed. Yup this isn't easy but hey I've made it this far and I know the challenges involved.
Accountability? Yup I've got that.

Don't Wait! Start on your dreams, your impulses,
your longings, your special occasions today.
Because this is your moment.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, Begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it, Begin it now.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Make today matter.
Ok, so I had my moment on the scales. I have to say I wasn't surprised. I'd be lying if I said I was. What with company, eating out (a alot), and just not getting my exercise in like I normally do it wasn't a good week to say the least. So as I stepped on those darn scales for my weekly weigh in I really wasn't expecting much. And that is what I got, I'm back up to what I was the week before last. Which in english means i've stayed the same again. This is week seven and no change really to speak of. Which is ok, that means i'm doing something right to maintain. Though that isn't what I want right now. So i'm once again beginning a new week, full of hope, plans, and ideas. Now I would love to come back here next week and share my wonderful news of losing at least a pound but that is yet to be seen. I start off great and lose my momentum by the weeks end. My weekly goal is to weigh and measure this week. I'm still following my plan with the water, fruits and veggies, exercise, writing it down, and journaling. I think I need to watch my portions and i'm giving that a go this week. You know sometimes your eyes are bigger then our stomach.
So I begin this new week, spring is in the air, i'm feeling strong and i'm motivated to get this done. I have seven weeks to reach my goal and show it off at my daughters wedding. 129 here I come.

I'm still here, i'm still working the program, and i'm still in the game. I had company for a bit and it derailed me some, but i'm here and i'm ready to work. I need to focus now and see my goal. I found that with company I didn't stick to my plan as I should, I didn't exercise as I could. But I had a wonderful visit, my daughters shower was awesome, and she had no idea about the party or her grandmother and aunts coming from vermont for it. It was so good to see my mom and sisters. I haven't seen my sisters for a few years and it was just nice to catch up.
But the fun is over, the work needs to begin and I need to step up to the plate and hit this ball out of the park. I have set my goals, I have a plan and now is the time to get it going in motion. Time change means time to walk after work if I so choose, and it means more daylight for me to just relax on the swing if I want....on the flip side it means shorts, tank tops, and smaller clothes. So today is the beginning of spring warm ups. Spring is this sunday and I want to be prepared if not ready for the season.
So as I leave you know that i'm fine, doing well and now that my life is somewhat back to order till the wedding, I have six weeks to get it together and be at my goal, I need to focus on me. I'm what is important right now.
