Days #268 & 269 Remembering how far I have come, because of dog kibble!

Friday, December 07, 2012

Hi! To my Sparkers!

I've released almost a pound, since last Friday! .8# It's great to be so motivated, right now! I'm trying to reach a 5# goal from Thanksgiving to Christmas, I joined the team "Christmas Present to myself". It is REALLY keeping me going!

On Dec. 16th I am going to go to a "Gangnun" flash with I don't know how many people! Raising money for Sandy victims.

Also, I have become a ZUMBA queen! I LOVE it, can't get enough! Dec. 19th is a ZUMBA Christmas party, dancing for several hours. (After my usual 1 hour class).

Last weekend was the L.Vegas Santa Run. I walked 7.5 miles with a marionette! REALLY a blast, PLUS raising money for kids. 9,000 Santas! Ginnis world of records! See my blog with photos, if you are interested! I promoted Spark People, too! See the sign in my antlers on my profile photo?

I can honestly say I am amazed by the changes in my physical life! I KNOW it is because of Spark People changing my MIND!

Yesterday I went to Cost Co. We needed dog kibble for LUCY. I picked up a 40# bag. OMG..... HOW did I EVER carry this much weight, before? PLUS I still have about 10 more to release. I kept going to the cart & picking it up, again & again, just so I can REMEMBER the significance of this achievement! WOW!

Hope you are ALL having a GREAT Holiday season. I have decided to enjoy this year, last year my Sweet Love, was recovering from back surgery. He almost didn't make it through the operation. We are SO blessed! I think I am the happiest I have ever been. Achieving my goals are worth more than ANY food! He is doing MUCH better, too! So, this year, NO stress! IF I don't reach a goal or wrap a present, who will know, besides me? I am giving my love this year. I think that will be enough!

Remember to relax & don't stress, as wonderful Chris Downey, says!

Love & Sparkles,

    Boy, when you put it that way, it is so amazing to leave all the baggage behind. It is amazing what our bodies will endure! You are looking great. I am glad you have much less stress this year in your life. Have a very merry holiday season!
The dancing and gangum style flash dancing sound like a blast. Have fun. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon When I reached 100 Pounds Lost (Released is a way Better Word for this!!) I donated 10 Ten Pound Bags of Kitty Litter to a Local Charity. I repeated the Donation during our Food Drive at Curves and at Christmas. Handling those bags was a Fabulous reminder of the way things used to be
