I can't believe it has been one year since I found this awesome site!!
This year in a nutshell:
I started my journey to help me get through the holidays without adding another pound to this body of mine!
My dad had been diagnosed with cancer 2 1/2 years earlier and was now gravely ill. We went downstate for Thanksgiving and ended up staying for 3 weeks thinking he was going to pass at anytime! It was such a stressful and emotional time being with him and just watching his pain. We finally had to get back home (we live 7 1/2 hours away) . Hubby needed to get back to work and we need to pay bills etc! We came home on Monday and my dad passed away on Thursday. So we traveled back down for the memorial. Christmas passed in an emotional blur.
So my first3 months on SP were not typical! I finally took control again in January doing P90X with hubby and it was a blast!! It is so fun to exercise with someone and laugh and have a good time while you work out!! He has been my biggest cheerleader along with my kids!
When I told him my first anniversary was coming up and I was discouraged at having only lost 15 lbs he told me that I have done great! And he said just look at if I lose 15 lbs this year I will have lost 30 lbs!! He has always told me if I didn't lose even 1 lb I would still be beautiful!! He has been so awesome in all of this!
Some of the changes I have made:
Eating healthy: Even trying things like spaghetti squash and kale!! And totally open to trying anything that might be healthy!! Definitely a new me!! LOL
Working out: I have always been active but now I push myself out of my box! I have even signed up to run a 5K on Oct 30th and I have never been a runner!! But I WILL do this! I recently ran 2 1/2 miles without stopping.......major happy dance!!!!!!!
So, never say never!!!
One new thing I have done is set my weight goals with the dates! Now I really have something to work toward!!!
I CAN DO THIS AND I WILL DO THIS!!!!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME!!
THANK YOU SPARK PEOPLE AND THANK YOU TO ALL MY SPARK TEAMS AND SPARK FRIENDS!!!! YOU ARE ALL AWESOME!!!
