I made my fresh start on May 1 and have been doing well since then, tracking food and fitness. It feels good to be back into my Spark routine, and it's been fun catching up on old friends and making new ones on the boards and blogs. The support here is awesome! I know I'll see some good results on Monday, weigh-in day.
One thing that I'm especially happy about is that I've gotten at least 7 hours of sleep each night, usually 8. My sleep rhythm had been off since I got back from the States and last Saturday's 12-hour sleepathon seems to have gotten me back on track. I know we all KNOW this, but it makes such a difference in my attitude, thought life, stamina, motivation, ability to control my appetite - um, well, LIFE! I am a fan of sleep.
Mom and Dad are plugging along. We got to talk on Skype, complete with webcam on dad's birthday on Thursday. That was fun. They are still both looking for a new primary care physician. Mom's is moving to a new location, farther from home - and Dad hasn't had one for ages. *sigh*
I've signed up for a 7K race on June 13, one day after the deadline for my Prophets course, and smack in the middle of the weekend celebration of our church's 10th anniversary. This may be the craziest, or the sanest decision I've made in awhile!
