Good Morning My Spark Friends !
What a whirlwind 2011 has been for me ! Lots of challenges and opportunities to drown myself in comfort food. The really good news is that I haven't done it ! I log in each morning and check my 'friend feed" and that's about it. I have not been tracking food, exercising on a schedule or weighing in.
This morning I weighed just the same as I did before the holidays, and that was fantastic ! The months I'd spent in "Spark" training have served me well. Although there has been no loss, there has been no GAIN ! Prior to this there would have been double digit pounds for certain.
Later this month I leave for California and Nevada, where five of my children and 11 of my grandchildren live. I will spend two weeks helping with new baby Jaxson and his 2 year old big brother. From there I will travel to Reno where my youngest son is scheduled for a delicate surgery. I am so glad that I can be of help with his two little ones. I will have opportunity to visit my other Reno kids, family and friends. When my 'work' there is finished I'll move on to Battle Mountain. There I will give 'momma love" to a daughter who is struggling, and her two boys.
I believe that my healthier eating habits, along with meditation and yoga, make it possible for me to gather balance in my life. We all get thrown a few curve balls now and then, it's just a matter of 'hanging in there', not allowing the outside to sidetrack the inside. My Spark friends, YOU are a touch stone for me. I think about you, read your blogs, care about your lives and am ever grateful for your support. Together we will work out the details... Namaste
