I tried a SparkPeople recipe a couple of week ago and tried it on my husband. He wanted nothing to do with my "diet food" as he calls it. I don't give up easily. All I prepare anymore is healthy food, so today he could try my recipe or not. It was his choice. He joined me for lunch and LOVED it, as did I! We gave it a rating of "Incredible" on SparkRecipes. I made SparkRecipe "Island Chicken with Pineapple Salsa", brown rice and peas. Delicious! I might just Spark him after all. Happy cooking everyone.

This morning, I walked my 1st 5K in 52:17! I'm so proud of myself! After logging my time in, I just had to go to my SparkPage to see my trophy! My husband gave me a congratulations hug. This is such a big deal for me. Until May 5, 2012 when I joined SP, I laid in bed all day and watched Netflix, maybe 10 movies a day, everyday. I only thought I was happy. I didn't know what happiness was. Today, it's all about accomplishing something I never thought I could. Thanks SparkPeople!

Today's my birthday. Happy 50th Birthday to me! I want to thank God for another day and pray for His will this coming year. I feel beautiful inside and out. I planned my workouts this week around today so that today could be a day of rest. We planned on going to a steakhouse today, but my DH didn't want to spend the excess money, so today I have a personal chef! I'm going to have filet mignon, baked potato, and mushroom caps. I made a special carrot cake with real carrots and raisins and applesauce in place of the oil. I plan on logging in my calories and averaging them out between yesterday, today and tomorrow. I feel like God is in control this birthday. Last year was a blur. "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The Spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Mark 14:38 I hope everyone has a blessed day!

This morning, my dear husband saw me in my birthday suit and commented , "You look good, Cathy. You look skinny."!. This is in contrast to his comment that finally got me to take a look at myself. He told me, "You look good in clothes." I knew what he meant. And he was right. I've only lost 31 lbs of my goal 74 lbs, but he doesn't cringe when he sees me naked. This makes me so happy, to have a husband that notices what I'm doing for myself. I can't thank him enough. I can't thank ME enough. I'm feeling confident and beautiful, way before he ever said anything. He supports me in my fitness journey too, by walking with me, even up to my 2.5 miles. This morning we took our chihuahua puppies, and my boy Chico even kept up with me on the track. So my whole household is taking notice and getting healthy along with me. How terrific that I'm spreading the Spark!

June 30, I reached a weight loss goal almost 1 month early. My goal was to weigh 168 lbs by my 50th birthday, July 27 and this morning I weighed in at 167.8 lbs! My new weight loss goal for Jul 27 is 160 lbs. I've been losing an average of 2.5 lbs per week, so I feel this goal is attainable and realistic.
