I am coming up on two years and am so into being a Spark woman right now. One of the biggest things I have had found that challenged me and does to this day is not feeling selfish about taking care of myself. I got my book and just full out gave myself permission to succeed. I go in the morning to walk 5-8 miles (in my new Sketcher Shape Ups that my mom got for me! I am 55!) I read about them on this site and they are fabulous. I am logging in my food on my tracker, try to eat clean, but do not diet, keeping a journal, whatever it takes! And I thought it already was "all about me". Nope, I put others first, and I needed to kick myself into action going into my third year with Sparks and reach my goals, instead of going up and down, not thinking things through, etc. You all know what I mean. We are all emotional eaters to some extent, but we are grown, we don't have to eat foods that don't fuel us! Stretching and weights are not an option, they are necessary every day for me. I do take a day off from the workouts, and just walk and dance, have fun, but this program works. We just have to do the work and no more excuses for me. Watch out, turning 56 in March and nothing is going to stop me from being a healthy, fit, middle aged woman!
