2013 Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Happy New Year and goodbye 2012!

New Years resolutions...hmmm are they meant to be broken? Should they not be categorized? Do we set ourselves up to fail when making them? you?

I've chosen things to live by this year instead but I suppose they line up with the theory of a resolution.

1. Live in the moment
2. Have no regrets
3. Treat others as I want to be treated

The end...pretty simple.

    I think those are great resolutions. I need to work on number 1 myself!

Big Steps...

Sunday, August 05, 2012

Today I made big steps...I'm normally a person who relies on people to do things with me. Don't think I never do anything alone cause I do I just tend to hate it. In the past workouts for me would go the same way...I wouldn't go of no one else was going to go. But this morning I went grocery shopping and then I bad the urge to get my C25K done while I was out and about. So I did...I did it alone and didn't even ask if any of my friends were going. I was so proud of myself I couldn't believe it and either could a few friends. I have been contemplating how you only can rely on matter what and I feel I proved to myself today I can and will keep on track with or without anyones help I will be there for me. Of course I will still do my workouts with friends it just made me feel good to accomplish this on my own.

    Friends can help you reach your goals, but at the end of the day you still have to do the work yourself. emoticon
Congrats on making a big first step.

    I used to be single and during that time, I came to the conclusion that I couldn't wait on other people to do stuff because if I did, I would miss out on a lot of fun adventures. I was the person who would go to the movies almost every weekend all by myself in order to see all the movies I wanted to see. If I had to have a date or friend to go, I would have sat home a lot.

Congratulations on taking care of business--on your own!

Relay for Life

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Just came home from an emotional walk and luminary ceremony from my local Relay for Life. During the name ceremony I stood behind a survivor and her family. I was very touch by the emotion and strength they showed as she cried and her family comforted her. It made me think of my Papa who lost his battle with cancer 21 years ago. I miss him everyday...when I was a child he was my best friend. Tonight I walked for his memory and for all those who won, still battling and who have lost their battle with cancer. To all who have been tocuhed with cancer in someway I pray your strength and sorrows. Tonight was emotional but knowing Papa was with me makes it all the better.

Goodnight Sparks.

    I did the same back in April. I walked for both my grandfathers and my great-grandfather who last their battles with cancer and for my grandmother who has survived colon cancer. Thanks for participating in that great cause.

C25K W1D3

Friday, July 20, 2012

Well my first week of C25K is complete or what I've been calling my trial run. I'm so proud of myself its a rough workout not originally being a running but that's what I'm working on! I still can run all the time I'm suppose to be I'm ok with that because as the program promises I'm off the couch! I'm still looking g for workouts to do on my "relax" days but I'm certain that will come soon too. My eating this week was ok not the greatest but I'm ok with that too. I'm definately a work in progress and that is what this is all about...making me a new healthier and happier me. Each day I feel better about it and that makes me excited :)

Goodnight Sparkland!

car accident

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I had a rough morning on my way to work.I was in a car accident. Everyone wws fine more shook up then anything and no real damage that I know of to either of our cars...for that I'm greatful. I was totally surprised no one was interested in me calling the police I mean we were in an accident but I called anyways and even the sheriff was pretty much telling me it wasn't necessary. He didn't write up a report just gave me a number so I had prove we had contact in case I needed it for the future. I'm scared to drive on the expressway now and worried my body is going to hurt more the little aches I feel now. Hopefully all will be well and I can resume my workouts...and I get over my new fear of my commute to work.

    Thank God you're okay! Glad it wasn't worse. Take it easy the next few days to recover. You might have some new aches and pains for a couple of days.
