Today could not have been better! I started my day with 45 minutes of power yoga followed by a 60-minute brisk walk. I burned about 500 calories! I tracked everything I ate and my Nutrition tracker now tells me I consumed 1,476 calories today. I am so proud of myself!
I've been drinking lots of water and I ate 6 servings of fruit and veggies today which is also good! If only every day was as easy as today was!! I know it's really easy to focus on eating the right things and working out now that I've only just recently re-started my program and I know things usually get a little more complicated after a while, but I'm prepared for it! I'm not going to give up myself anymore.
And that's a promise :)
Hope you all are having a great, healthy day so far!

I'm so glad the weekend is finally here. I will be spending mine visiting my family and catching up with my sister! That's always fun :) I'm going to eat right, work out, relax, spend time with my family and just take it very easy while I'm here. I'm trying to learn to be less stressed about things I cannot change (that's one of my bad habits that I want to get rid of!).
I hope all of you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend! Get some rest - and some exercise - and just enjoy the two days off! You deserve it :)

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a year since the last time I updated my SparkPage. I feel like I should maybe give a short recap on what's been going on, but honestly, I don't know where to start. On the surface, not much has changed, but I feel as though I've gone through a lot mentally over the past year and learned so much about myself along the way.
Weight loss wise, I'm right where I was when I wrote my last blog entry almost a year ago. I'm about 85 kilos (187 lbs) so I haven't gained or lost any weight over the last year. I'm grateful for that because I know things could easily be a lot worse considering my eating and exercise habits (or lack thereof). Ironically, even though this is about the heaviest I have ever been, I now love and appreciate my body more than ever before. That doesn't mean I don't want or need to lose weight - because I do - but I no longer hate my body or the way it looks just because it's not "perfect" (ughh, I hate that word). I can't believe there was a time in my life when all I could see when I looked in the mirror were flaws. I used to feel like everything about me was wrong. Well, not anymore.
I know I need to be fitter, healthier and stronger to be able to enjoy my life the way I want to, but these days when I look in the mirror I see so much more than flaws or imperfections. Instead, I see a beautiful, amazing, attractive young woman with so much potential and a whole life ahead of her. I know I will never feel 100 % confident about myself at this weight but at the same time I know I have the power to do something about it and make a change.
Every day is a new beginning. Every day we can get up and choose to make a change in our lives. We can choose to be more positive and not let anything get us down. I know I have it in me to start making those small but important changes in my life that will eventually lead into a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life.
I'm so happy to be back. I've missed you all :)
