Well Sparkies,,,,,,
I am back on track this week,,,,,, making the journey towards my healthier & sexier self,,,, I know she is there somewhere in me,,,,, difficult to find her,,, BUT I have HOPE,,,, and I am not giving up!!! I have determination,,,,,, and desire to be the best that I can be,,,,,, I do not want to live my life wishing that I had lost weight ...... I want to be physically able to still be adventurous,,,, to see the world without getting out of breath! I went to the Getty Museum and I was really struggling when we went up flights of stairs ... my kids of course went through there without a problem,,, but I hate to admit that some of it was tough for me. Being an "older" mom,,, I have to find a way to keep up,,,, and that way is getting healthier.

And talking about kids,,,,,, I have a 19 year old son that joined my gym and is going to make sure that I at least go at least 2 times a week .... and work out at least 4 days a week (treadmill at home)..... He really wants to see his mom healthy and in good shape,,,,, I tell him that he actually did see me like that,,,,,,, but he was about 7 years old at the time! LOL

Ok,,, my friends,,,, I am back on track,,, the trick is to stay FOCUSED on my goals and avoid "emotional eating"....... yeah,, I caught myself this week,,,,,,, I had some painful dental work done and I found myself eating too much........... comforting myself with food??? Can you believe it? I have to find another way ...... because even writing about it right now makes me feel silly. I am too old for this type of foolishness...... time to get healthy!!! emoticon
