Starting on a new me today

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I feel like I've totally lost myself these past couple months. Last year I turned 40 and everything was about me. The middle age attack had set in and I was bound and determined to be healthy and fit for my next half. I did it and felt amazing. I needed to go on prednisone for an allergic reaction and gained back almost all I had lost. I am making a conscious choice to focus on me again. That's it. Life will happen with me healthy or not so it is my choice to decide to be healthy during all of it. We made reservations for our summer vacation at the beach! I am a goal setter and this is it. We will bae vacationing with my wonderful sister-in-law and her family and we all get along so well. Her 2 beautiful daughets, 17 and 19 are very fit and beautiful as is their mother. If they aren't motivation to get it together no one is. I really want to feel confident and healthy next to them while sitting on the beach this summer. So here I am back on the wagon. I can and will make this happen like I did last year. I will hopefully never be on prednisone again and will maintain this healthy lifestyle. I had maintained it for 6 months before the meds. That had been the longest I had maintained ever. I have the tools and Spark so here I am! Lets go!

    emoticonI gained most my weight back b/c my thyroid meds weren't working anymore. I'm hoping w/new meds & renewed goals I can do it again as well.

Happy Valentine's Day !

Monday, February 14, 2011

I am meeting my husband for lunch today. I am so lucky to have such a great man in my life. We have been married 18 years and could not imagine life without him in it. I hope all my Sparkfriends have someone wonderful in there life. Spouse, significant other or really good friends to count on. I think making the tough days in our life possible to get through are these people. Use today to let them know how important they are in your mental and physical health. I know I will be! Enjoy a treat and exercise a bit more to earn it! Have a great day!


We had a nice night...

What a great couple! Such nice people we went out with. We had a great night. I"m committing to 4 days of workouts this week! Workouts have been on the back burner the past few weeks and I have really seen a difference in my waist line. My clothes are much tighter. It's amazing how much a difference it makes to my body. I'm going to Zumba today while the 3 boys in my life (including my husband) watch a scary movie on demand that I have no interest in. I hope everyone has a great Sunday. It should be getting warmer in Upstate New York this week so I plan on enjoying this heat wave!

A great night ahead!

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I've been in a very good place lately. I'm taking in day by day and enjoying the relaxed peaceful days I have had. My older son seems very at peace with himself and that is so comforting to me. I guess we are doing something right over here :). We have all come to the decision that its time for our younger son to know what is going on. We will tell him during winter break so he has some time to wrap his brain around this before dealing with classes. Also my parents will be away for 2 weeks so he won't be dealing with them either. So I am taking this week and enjoying the peace before tackling the next rollercoaster ride. My husband and I are going to dinner tonight with some wonderful friends. A couple who just enjoy getting together. No drama or trash talk that we have seen recently from other friends. So looking forward to some grown up time with hubby and just enjoying the night! Have a great day Sparkfriends and as always thanks for being here!


Wenesday was a good day...

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Spent the afternoon with my mom which was nice. We had some lunch together, did some shopping and went to my younger sons wrestling match. Boy I am so on board with my eating but it has been a struggle to get back to my maintenance weight. Since I've been on the prednisone in November I just can't get that extra weight off. I'm being consistent and totally been on the healthy lifestyle but it's just amazing how hard it has been to get it off. So I persevere and stay devoted to my healthy lifestyle. I guess I should be grateful through this stressful time I haven't binged to comfort myself. That is a huge deal to me. I have binged through many other situations in my life that were no where near as stressful as this. So here I am with two teenagers ready to stay in the trenches with them and get them through these trying years. I'm happy to know that I have found ways to cope through them without turning to food. Thanks Sparkfriends for being here.

    Prednisone will really do it to your weight - I think many of the steroids do, but maybe your doctor could help with this? It can be so frustrating to work so hard and see the opposite results from what you want - emoticon
