So my journey toward health and fitness took a BIG detour a while back. The story of what helped to derail me is to too personal and detailed to share here. Once I crossed the threshold out of grief and began healing, it was like blinders had been lifted from my eyes. I could see where I had once been and where I was now and knew I had to start over. Being fit, being active, being strong, being healthy are not options. They are necessities. Now, with God's help and the encouragement of friends and my family, I have started again toward my goal. I am tracking my nutrition daily and excited to do it. Exercise is not yet where it needs to be or where I want it, but it will increase soon.
If you started your journey towards a healthier you and found yourself swept off the path by whatever life has thrown at you, I want you to know, it is okay. You can start again and you may find that starting again you are more focused and determined. Allow yourself to have control again. Sparkpeople's tools and the support of the Sparkpeople community can and will help you to reach your goal.
