Counting Down the Days To San Diego!
Thursday, April 02, 2009
I would like to really ramp up my efforts this month, not only to celebrate two years with SparkPeople, but I am going to the Spark Your Life Convention in San Diego at the end of the month and am SO PSYCHED and wanting to put my best foot forward for this MOST SPECTACULAR occasion!
It is so special for a number of reasons:
---of course it is special to celebrate at SparkPeople's first annual convention and meet SO many other members and SparkPeople staff, not the least of which is Chris Downey, SparkGuy who is nearing the completion of his first book about SparkPeople and will be drawing from convention attendees for his book!
---in addition, my sister and her family resides in San Diego and I have never ONCE visited them in the 20+ years they have lived out there.
---also, I have NEVER traveled further west in the USA than the Mississippi River!
---by some strange fluke, my son will be in San Diego at the same time attending a Physician Assistant convention right in the same building (San Diego Convention Center) as the SparkPeople convention.
Because of all these factors I made up my mind I was going to get there one way or the other and will be spending several days there staying with my sister and her family.
I'm getting all sorts of ideas from other Sparkies of great things to do like rent a bicycle and tour the town, catching all the beautiful sights.
So...I need to come up with a plan to really buckle down and accomplish some great things before the end of the month!
Trouble is...not sure where to start, what to aim for...breaking through my plateau and really working on shedding a few more pounds would be good. I am also a bit hampered still by my recovery from gall bladder surgery. Recovery is going well, but not sure I can yet truly pump it up on either treadmill or bicycle. Some strength-building might be off-limits also due to demands on my abs, which are still pretty sore.
But I better get going on SOMETHING here...!
