Back on track!

Friday, February 11, 2011

Hi! I'm back on track.

My new grand baby is now 5 weeks old and he is adorable and so precious. Then, who am I to say, I could be prejudice. Ha...ha..He is a real joy to me! Of course, being a grandma is wonderful and I love and enjoy the other two little ones very much too.
I have been a little behind in my exercise routine since I have been needed as a grandma lately. So, I am a little slower with my loss than I had planned. However, this past week I caught up and exercised 5 days and that was a great feeling. It really gave me such energy this week to be back moving more. I am now feeling a little lighter in my steps. I hope I keep up the motivation and determination to keep going each day in the right direction. Some days I know will be harder than others to follow through. I am working to give this my best.

I have been on the new points plus program now for 10 weeks. I was not sure at first if I liked it. Now, I realize it is really a healthier plan than the last one. With eating fruits and most veggies for free, other foods are higher in points plus. I see now why, since we do have the free foods. I am eating more filling foods and starting to understand what being satisfied or full actually means. In the past, I did not understand or know what this felt like. They have given us all the tools and best choices. Tracking, exercising, following the healthy guidelines, and becoming who I am meant to be, really means so much to me. I want to be healthier and get back to my old self. I know I can do it. Spark People have become great friends and W8Watcher people have become very special friends too. What more can I ask? Thanks for being with me on this journey. Have a wonderful healthy and blessed day everyone! Let's motivate each other and get to goal! Irish Ei
Keep Sparkin!!

    The picture is absolutely adorable! It is, of itself inspiration to remain motivated. Having the energy to keep up with young ones is often a challenge. You probably have been getting more activity than you realize. However, sticking to a planned routine is a big boost in self-confidence.
    I am glad you are back where you desire, and thank you for the important reminders. Some days will be better than others, after all, this is a life journey.
    I always am interested in feedback on the new plan. I think I have a better understanding, but it always is informative to hear what those who are practicing it think.
    You have the attitude which will be one of your greatest tools as you pursue your goals. You are an inspiration to many-Doing a fantastic job! emoticon
