Successful day

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

I was on track yesturday! Yeah! I went to my Zumba class that I love but have missed for weeks. It was great to see my workout buddies I've haven't seen in a while. They are such positive people and always remind me that I have to take care of myself if I want to tak care of anyone else. My younger son had some girlfriend issues that could have sent me into a raging binge but didn't do it! Yeah again! It all worked itself out, which I know will be happening again during these teenage years. If I had binged and then had seen everything work out I would have probably binged again just out of frustration. So I did great and feel very confident. I'm meeting a friend for lunch and am thrilled to catch up with her. Have a great day Sparkfriends and thanks again!

    Congratulations for being on track! It is often too easy to get caught up in all the emotions, but it looks like you see the situation and keep things in check.

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...

Sunday, February 13, 2011

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!
