MIA but trying to make a comeback!


Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Hey sparkers!! Its been a LOOOOOOOONG time since I have hopped on to spark, wrote a blog, visited sparkteams and updated my spark page! But here I am! Better late then never emoticon

I gotta say I have missed my spark friends and have been feeling a bit guilty not visiting them and visiting my sparkteams.. I actually asked one of my other spark team leaders if she would like to take over the Jillian Michaels sparkteam because I havent been on it for a while. She said yes which I appreciated and said I can keep myself as one of the team leaders for when I do decide to come back to spark. Thanks again SACHABEE!!! emoticon

The past couple of months I had been fluctuating between the same 5 pounds but now I have gone OVER those 5 pounds which is not cool but thats all my fault and I am owning up to it! I workout here and there but honestly I havent been enjoying my workouts at all. I have gotten extremely bored with all my workout dvds and if I could I would totally join a gym but the gyms around here are a bit over my budget so I want to try and join team challenges to help give me a little push! I also want to get back into tracking my nutrition and making healthy recipes that I can find at sparkrecipe.

I want to pick out the hottest costume for halloween so I HAVE to workout and eat healthy to look good in it lol! I was gonna be a vampire but I started looking on the internet at all the new costumes and now I have changed my mind! Hee!

My first Half Marathon is also coming up. Its on October 7th and I am really looking forward to it. My mom is actually going to fly up from Florida to be here for it! I am super excited that she is going to be there to cheer me on lol. After that I want to sign up for a couple of other small races just to have things to look forward to. I want to sign up for a halloween 5k. I just have to wait and see when this years halloween party is going to be then I can choose which halloween 5k to do! I also want to do a 5 mile Turkey Trot on thanksgiving day. Its going to be at prospect park, which is a few avenues up from where I live, so I figured I can wake up early on Thanksgiving Day, go to the race, and that'll be my workout for the day! I think there is also a Jingle Bell 5k that I saw for some time in December.

I also want to try and do a lot of outdoorsy kind of stuff. I love this time of year and I want to try and get in some fall activities! I told my boyfriend I want to go apple picking this year then come home and bake an apple pie! I always brought up and idea to my boyfriend, TASO her fiance and our friends that maybe one weekend we can go eat breakfast at this place called Cracker Barrel, then go drive out to this little town that is by where my dad camps. The drive there will be beautiful especially once the trees start changing colors, so I am really looking forward to that! I also want to try and take my dog, Phoenix, to the park in the mornings as often as possible so she can run around and we can enjoy the beautiful mornings together!

I am also getting back into my knitting, I feel like knitting is going to be my fall hobbie lol I havent knit ANYTHING all year long but once labor day weekend was over I picked up my knitting needle and started going at it!

I hope all of you have been doing great and I am really going to push myself this time around to get back on and visit and track and do everything I need to to get back to my goal weight!!

    You changed your mind on your Halloween costume?? What are you going to be now?? I'm still stuck on Zombie. I need to get makeup too though so I have to start looking up makeup tips as well!

Do you know if Maggie is ok with holding the Halloween party at her place this year? I've been itching to go to Michaels to look at all the stuff and I especially want to go after Halloween to get in on those specials! Hopefully then I can plan to do next years Halloween party with plenty of time to spare!

And I can't wait for that Cracker Barrel day, OMG. I was telling Manny the next time we go to PA on a Friday night that I wanted him to go the long way to Allentown, through Easton and Bethlehem. I forget where we were exactly but last year we had driven in and coming down a street, there was a high school football game going on, bleachers all full of people in jackets and cheering and it was dark so they had those bright strobe lights on and I remember thinking, "This is it. This is part of Fall. The football games, the cheering. This is all part of the season." And I suddenly really wished then that I was into football! LOL. It sounds ridiculous but I told Manny that this year I wanted him to take the long way in again, see if we come across that school and another football game, see if I can recapture that fleeting moment, you know?

Anyways, Fall is going to be awesome this year!
