Hello, Old Friend

Friday, January 04, 2013

There have been a few times here lately where I have thought to myself, "I should start getting back on SP." I haven't had internet at our new house yet, but we should get it up this week (hopefully). I have been going insane without it.

I have been rather unhealthy here recently. Not too happy about it. In fact, I have been moping about the house for most of my Christmas break (what a waste of a break). I got on here tonight mainly because a while ago, I set SP as my home page and when I got to my friends house and turned on the internet, I thought, "Ah, why not?" Thought I could go ahead and track my calories and see how I did today. I have to weigh in for Army Drill tomorrow. I know I will not pass and will have to face the dreaded tape again. We shall see if I pass. Pass or not, though, I need to get healthy.

After I logged my calories, I decided to check out a friend's blog. She always has some awesome and truthful things in her blog. I was shocked and amazed once again. Then I realize that the "you have a comment on your page" email that I got yesterday was not some forwarded message from a group or anything, it was a simple comment from the same friend. There is definitely some Spark in the air. It's like it knows that I have fallen astray of my once healthy ways and must be called back!

I sometimes track my calories on my phone with the SP app...but I realized that the thing that keeps me on track and in tune with my self is this blog and the people that read it. The people who write blogs about their own struggles and successes that I can read and relate to and know that there are people like me out there.

I am not going to promise that I will blog everyday, or even every other day, because I know I won't. I am one mega busy lady with a ton of wonderful students and 6 performing groups to lead...but I need to make time for me. I need to make time to get on my SparkPeople, connect with friends, enjoy learning about healthy lifestyle choices, and reflect on my habits and how to do better for myself.

Thanks for always being there!

    Awe, Squisshy, I was so happy to open my e-mail and see you had posted a blog. How wonderful to hear from you! Best wishes on your Spark Journey to fitness, health, and weight loss. Be sure and stop by when you have time. We certainly understand. I know you are just loving your new job and responsibilities and I just bet your students love you.

Life does get busy but be sure and take care of yourself along the way.

Hugs, Sunny

    Welcome back! Making time for you is #1. I Spark every morning from 5 AM--ish to 5:30 AM--ish. It's a great way to start the day. I plan/pack my food for the day and then enjoy a nice workout. Getting into a daily habit is the key. You can do it!

Have a great weekend! Keep Sparking! emoticon
