I am on my way back.....Relighting my SPARK!

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Well to say it has been a tough few months would be an understatement! emoticon I was rushed to the hospital on February 24 and diagnosed with meningitis! Like WHO gets that? Apparently it is not that common in adults....guess when I say "when I grow up" it is not a complete lie..haha

Anyways it has been a long road of pain meds, which is still not complete. I am getting around better and although I am not off of the pain meds completely I am having alot more better days. I am thrilled to be able to say this. emoticon I even remember everything except the day I went to the hospital. which incidentally was a day I didn't remember 20 years of my life.

I am baffled that I have had a love of junk food and a HUGE aversion to fruits and veggies since I have been sick. I am making an effort to turn my eating habits around. I am going to get this done and get it right this time!

I am here and I am although not 100% I am back enough to make this happen. I am a bridesmaid in September at my brother's wedding and the dress is 2-3" too small on me right now. I know I can do this....I just need to do it! emoticon

So along with my Spark family and friends I am going to start tracking calories and fitness minutes. I am going to amaze everyone again. Please help me do this.

  You have plenty of time. Focus on weight training more than cardio and you will fit into that dress in no time.
