My Success Story on CBC Live Right Now


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, August 03, 2012

Just over a week ago I had an interview with one of the Senior Producers at CBC Live Right Now and was informed they were posting my story today. It was neat to read - seeing what he pulled out of our half hour interview. I even got to put the plug in about SparkPeople (while they didn't put as much emphasis on it as I did in my interview - but it's understandable because their site is kind of the same in promoting healthy eating, exercise, articles, etc). This is really 'sweet' as I just celebrated my 6 Year SP Anniversary on July 31st. I certainly have come a long way and I am very grateful to SP and all my wonderful SP Friends for contributing to my journey that has brought me to where I am today.

Here's the link to the story if you'd like to read it. www.cbc.ca/liverightnow/
lifes-lessons.html


And today - well I am having an incredible day so far (and it's not even noon)... Started by cleaning out my pantry, fridge and freezer - getting rid of all the old/outdated stuff and the JUNK. I got in my one hour walk by the river (3.5miles), did my ChaLEAN Extreme 20 mins Fitness Test and her Burn Circuit 2 in (2 hours total) and have my swim planned this afternoon with CHEFKATLEANER.

Bring on the rest of the day!!

    Not surprised from the spin doctors at "MotherCorp"!! Congrats nonetheless - it does NOT detract from your success.

    Fantastic story they did! But what is even more fantastic is you. I hope that you truly know how special you are to overcome so much and be such a role model for your children. I especially like that everyday presents a new opportunity to change our lives for the better and hold onto the positives. There will forever be negative situations in life, but having the strength to overcome them is definitely a superpower that you possess.
Lovely article. Thanks for sharing your story with us. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
