Sunday reflections

Sunday, March 04, 2012

It's been quite a while since I've taken the time to blog. I've been on spark for over a year now and I'm trying to manage my time better. I found that the first 6 months everything was clicking and the pounds were coming off, I was sparking, exercising, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep and then

My butt got kicked (other words, life got extremely crazy beyond my control) and I couldn't cope with it all. I had to care for a family member for a few months and my son became very difficult to live with.
Fast forward 15 months .... I've learned alot about myself, my body ... I am getting back on top! I have been exercising consistently (hurrah), I'm back to logging my food (yeah), but still trying to figure out the time factor on the computer. It is so easy for it to suck all my time, therefore I haven't been as "social" on spark. Please friends, I am still here, and I do comment/respond to people but on some days I just take the time to log in and track my exercise and nutrition.
What stimulated this blog was this positive statement I just read:

'When you are consistent in you healthy habits, magic is happening in your body and mind, even if the scale isn't moving.'
I'm ready for the magic to begin!

Happy sparking and have a GREAT and SUCCESSFUL week!

    Its is great to hear from you! It seems like you have your priorities fairly straight. Your nutrition and exercise comes 1st if you want to be successful. The socializing is a good thing, and not to be entirely neglected, but if you are short on time, it should take a backseat. I do look forward to hearing about YOUR "magic"!

    Hi Jackie,
    It's great to see that you keep on going even if things were not 100% at one point. Nobody can achieve 100% anyway.
    One of the things that inspired me to Spark was a major load of problems that I was facing. I realized that I was helping the problems work against me and I decided that I would help myself better by getting healthy. It did not solve my problems, but I do healthier things for myself.
    Keep on going and never give up on yourself. I hope things are getting better for you.
    Have a great week.

    It's true....even during the roughest of patches....if we are consistent with our healthy habits....things are more bearable.

    Life can be's how we deal with it that makes the difference.

    Happy Sunday..!! emoticon

    It is so hard to do it "all"! I feel like I'm always behind on active Sparking. But sister, you are doing the most important parts! Finding balance! Consistent exercise! Awesome! It feels so good to be back on regular exercise. You're a superstar!
