Okay, so it's been one week since I signed up with Spark People...I'm loving it. I do have admit that my first week was not done to the fullest. It was a combination of things...TOM came (UGH!), I spent a lot of time finding my way around this site, finding teams, meeting people, etc..., AND I have a health issue that is slowing me down.
I have a lump in my throat, it's been there for three years off and on, mostly on. I finally went to the doctor about it (it's interesting how I don't take care of myself at all unless I'm actively trying to lose weight and get healthy). He couldn't feel anything so he's sending me to a Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. He said they have a special scope they send down through the nose to see the throat. That does NOT make me feel any better. I know I want to get this taken care of so I immediately called the specialist and lucked out that he had a cancellation. My appointment is Thursday. I'm hoping a cause can be found and a course of action taken to solve this health issue. I'm ready to get it off my mind and out of my throat!
I'm ready to commit! Ready to be accountable to the challenges I've entered, 100 day Challenge and the Calorie Killers! The key for me is to knock out my exercising first thing in the morning so I can cross it off my list and go on to parenting my 7 kiddos, my 2 at-home-part-time jobs and life!
