It's time for me to get serious.
I have not been able to stay away from sweets, especially at night. It has been a real problem for me, for years. I have used this as a coping mechanism through my breast cancer It has got me through problems with my marriage, things my kids did to upset me, mean things people do or say, it is always here and there is no need for it. New Season = New Me, no night eating, no eating to comfort or soothe, NONE!
I plan on checking in nightly to document my progress, I can't go into another 3 months of the year staying this way. I am one of those people who like to have a new beginning, the time is right now. I have already tracked all the food I have eaten so far today, I have not been doing this, so I had no way of knowing how many calories I had been eating, but I know it was alot, not good for me. I have been exercising quite consistently for a few years now, but I have not achieved the trim/slim and firm body I should have by now. I feel good about making this life change, I am happy that I will no longer be filling my bed with candy, cookies, chips, IT'S OVER!
The New Inga! ME!

As a whole 2011 was a good one. Worst part was my dear Mom in law Genie passed, 88 years young, she lived a very full life and was not sick until the end. My dog Sadie, who was about 13 also passed, such a dear and faithful companion to our family. Loss is never easy, but we can't let it stop us, we must go on and live in the spirit of the loved one we were so generously allowed to spend time with. Life is to be lived and we must do so, no matter what. You can't let illness stop you either, as a 3x breast cancer survivor, I keep on going in as a healthy a manner as I know how too. Spark People has been instrumental in me surviving cancer and improving my health. I did really well this year on my exercise/fitness plan, working out regularly on the elliptical and stationary bike. I also work out with 3lb weights and it has been an asset to my overall well being. I feel really good and have improved stamina. I need some improvement in my healthy eating and water consumption, a new year will help me to get on track again. I have had some difficulties keeping up with my exercise plan this last month, maybe my new puppy has made that a little harder than usual. As the new year begins, I make a commitment to myself and plan on following through with everything I need to do to make 2012 an extraordinary year!
Here's to me!

As a 3 time survivor of this disease, I dedicate myself this entire month to spread the word about the importance of getting mammograms as your dr. recommends as well as conducting regular breast self-exams on a monthly basis. Each day I am truly thankful for my survivorship, and through each blog I write this month I celebrate that gift of life. Spark People has been an amazing part of my journey back to health and even a support system during my 3rd battle from which I have been healthy from after 2 and a half years. Whatever has come in my way, something inside of me has made me a fighter, SP has certainly been fuel to that fire.
More to come tomorrow...
