It was a really beautiful day today. I felt really cute today!! All of my clothes are loose now. My new haircut is just right for me. I finally got my massage today (was supposed to get it a few days back). Work has been good, exercise is back on track, my eating has been on track. Losing inches, mantaining weight (hope to start losing again soon). Have plans for Halloween, doing something I've wanted to do for years.........it's a HUGE festival at the Sacramento Waldorf School, just down the hill from where I went to college. Taking my niece, sister and mom, and I can't wait to dress up!! The weather has been so incredible, I can barely stand it. Been reading incredible, inspiring things. Taking tons of great pictures and that always makes me happy. Crocheting again, which also always makes me happy. Also have found a really neat app for my phone that calls out when to run and stop to help me train for a healthier running routine. Bought the Spark cookbook and can't wait to get it. My husband said he can tell I've lost wieght and I look good!!! That really makes me happy. And the time spent with my brother and nieces has been so wonderful. He was gone to Colorado for a year and I missed him terribly, so to have him back now, and the new baby here is just a gift that keeps giving. I've also been involved in a new, very educational/inspirational church, which has been a huge source of positive feelings. Plus eveyone keeps telling me how proud they are of my motivation to get healthy. I feel like I have cheerleaders everywhere I go!! It really feels great. It is good to be living life as fully as possible. I hope you are all doing well in your recent endeavors.

Just watched this video, so wonderful, so touching, what a couple. I am so amazed that a man as young as him would be willing to stick by his finance through the ups and the downs. If you guys don't know the story, google Chris Medina, it is quite overwhelming.
Here is the song he wrote for her when she was in the hospital after the car accident:

Well, my emotions are definitely not completely on track yet. After the unfriending last week (an old friend on facebook), I was REALLY down. I felt physically sick for about three days and didn't exercise consistantly for about 5. It has been a low energy, woe is me kind of past 5 days. I've eaten a little poorly and just haven't been on track. Well this morning is the begining of a saying good bye to the melancholia that has set up shop in my life these past few days. I am not going to be that sad little girl anymore. So what if I lost an old friend, I have lots of new friends............and they are better!!! So, ate a great breakfast, did my cardio workout, have some crocheting already planned for my downtime at work and I plan on being all around jolly today, if at all possible. I love that even if I slip up, I can still come back to my plan and get back in the saddle again. I haven't been beating myself up over this slip up either, just observing my emotions and trying to come to terms with them. It's so interesting actually dealing with my life and not running from it. I am realizing just how sensitive I am, but also how much I really care. And I like that. Love you guys, hope your mid-week is treating you fine.

It was a really lovely day off. Spent the morning doing yoga, and enjoying the rain. Then I went to my brothers and spent the afternoon with them, soaking up the new baby wonderfullness. I made a little beanie for her and went on a walk and saw a calico sheep. I've never seen one of those before! It was a really great day, then I found the BEST halloween costume ever, and it fit perfect. It is an angel, with wings and a halo!! I'll post pictures when I'm all dressed!! So fun, I haven't dressed for halloween in atleast ten years.
Hat I made for the baby
More happy sheep
It's funny how I've changed my outlook since starting SP. This morning I woke up, had a nice long walk planned, then as I started out, it started to rain. I got a little bummed for a minute, then just switched gears. And everything went perfectly. In the past I probably would have ate something heavy, and went to sleep if my day off didn't start well. I feel like I am slowly adding some really great tools to my life's toolbox. It's pretty fun to watch myself grow, never know what new thing I might just think up next!
Hope you all had a lovely start to your week.

OK, I am really falling in love with you all. I have never had this supportive of a network in my life. And the fact that it is a healthy, balanced support is just mind boggling. I have been reading the greatest blogs from old and new friends. It has really been a morning of realizing just how lucky I am. I may not work my program as perfectly as I'd like, I may not be as on top of my streaks as I want to be, but I am doing it, little by little, day by day, and it is because of you all. This community is always there for me, when I'm up, when I'm down, when I'm just blah. You are there, giving goodies, hugs, smiles, words of wisdom and love. I really love you people, you are becoming a part of me, a part of each day, each choice. I have been longing for this sense of belonging, this sense of community ever since I left home, and I have to admit, I haven't really found it until now. I hope you are having a lovely weekend. I wish I could teleport around the world and give you all big hugs right now.
Cheers to us!!!
