    Hope your day was Great.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I'm super glad to have gotten all the veggies/fruit taken care of this year. Nothing went to waste or rotted. But....a garden that big is a lot of work that is for sure.
Maybe it will be easier when I'm retired. LOL

Falling into a New Me - Autumn 2012

Saturday, September 22, 2012

It's time for me to get serious. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I have not been able to stay away from sweets, especially at night. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon It has been a real problem for me, for years. I have used this as a coping mechanism through my breast cancer emoticon 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. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon 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!

emoticon emoticon emoticon The New Inga! ME! emoticon

    I Have always thought of fall as the beginning of things. I love to make new plans and new starts in the fall. I haven't lost any weight since July, and I am ready to start again also. We can do this- look how much you have already accomplished! We tend to forget how far we have come.

Hugs
Caro

Lent it Go...Letting it go for Lent ~day one

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

As a Christian I began my lenten journey today. I am on a spiritual journey as well as a personal one. I have not been eating well, filling myself up with all the wrong foods to fuel my body... BIG mistake. I also have emotional baggage that I am releasing, alot of clutter in the home, all my bad habits are on the table now. I commit to improvement this first day of lent. I attended Church and it felt good to refresh myself on a spiritual level. I am tracking my food and planning my meals to avoid eating all the wrong and unhealthy impulse foods. I am removing as much clutter from my home as possible. Good start to being more accountable and putting an end to the depressed state I have been living in. Proud I am making this first step.

2011 Year in Review

Saturday, December 31, 2011

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! emoticon

    I just found your SparkPage via that of another SparkPeep and a kind message you left on her page :) I'm so sorry the past year meant the losses of both Genie and Sadie and hope 2012 will have many happy surprises in store for you. Congratulations on your impressive survivorship; you are a real inspiration! And I wish you countless happy and healthy years to come.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Sunday, October 02, 2011

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...

Inga
