local grown

Friday, May 04, 2012

Today was my first experience at a produce auction. I got the most beautiful cabbage and strawberries from local growers right within my county and at a really good price. I can't wait to make dinner with my new produce tonight! There is nothing like fresh local grown produce.

I was also able to get some beautiful squash plants for my dad and some really pretty flowers. I was so excited to be able to go today and support my local farming community. It is a new thing that just started in my area. I wish them well and hope it continues.

A little down, but still positive

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

Since the weather is getting warm here in VA, I pulled out the summer clothes, mainly the shorts and capris pants. They barely fit. I got a little depressed, realizing that I have gained 8 pounds since last summer. I didn't do my usual - throw my hands up, head for the cookie jar and give up. No, I went for a walk outside and it made me feel a lot better. I knew I had gained some weight since the fall, but trying on clothes makes you realize it a whole lot more than just looking at the scale.

I go to the beach at the end of the month. I have vowed to work hard to get off those extra 8 pounds and maybe a little more. I won't let this get me down.

    Wonderful way to handle what for many of us is an excuse to just say "forget about it!" You are going to totally meet your goal. emoticon

I understand you perfectly, it gets you a little bit down but when you realize you got the power to control it are at the other side =)

Remember ATTITUDE makes the difference and you have it all girl!!

Office challenge

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Today is the first day of the office challenge. I am really excited about it. We are all different ages and different sizes, but we all have one goal - we want to feel better and eat better. I told all the girls about Spark People and I hope some will join. It has really helped me focus. I have had a slow start, but that is ok, I feel like I am making progress every day.

Rainy Monday

Monday, April 30, 2012

Well, I went to help out with a stream monitoring class for a group of high school kids and got caught in the rain, and even though my feet are feet and it is pouring outside, I don't care.... Normally a day like this would put me in a terrible funk, but I am excited to go to the Y tonight and my new challenge starts this week. I am ready for it.

Spreading the Spark!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I am so excited. My office is doing a 3 month weight loss challenge and I spread the spark! I am hoping I will get at least one new sparker to our spark family, hopefully more, but if I can reach one, that will make me feel really good.

I also got another girl to come to water aerobics with me!!!!!!!! I am so excited, most of the time I am the youngest one in the class, it will be so nice to have someone my age.
