Comparison and the begining of my 8th week.

Monday, April 29, 2013

I have decided to hang the Spark calendar from my first month of this journey on my wall and print off each month to compare it to that and see how far I've come. 26 was a turning point for my mental and emotional health. Now at 28 I have reached the turning point for my health, wellness, and fitness. I started just 2 weeks after my birthday. I can't wait to see where I am a 29! I have been struggling off and on the last few weeks, but having those calendars hung up by my comp where I can see them daily is going to help. I can see that even though I was having a hard time I still did all my workouts and for the most part, ate right. I really think these are life changes this time. I'm not saying I won't have hard times, but I feel like I am really ready for these changes. I have worked out every single day since March 18th. That's awesome for me! And May 11th will be 2 months! Like I've mentioned before, I am setting the bar a little higher this time so that I have further to catch myself if I falter and I know that it will work for me. I have learned so much since I first started getting into my health in my early 20's and I am really putting what I've learned about myself to use. Once again though, I wouldn't be where I am without my sister's support, no matter the distance! I am taking more credit for my part too. I love growing and getting to know more about myself! It's makes life wonderful. I am proud of the mother I am turning into as well. I know how much I love my Monkey and always have but want to be able to be fit and healthy with him. I love that I can play with him now. We get great bonding time in when we go on our walks together. Sometimes I feel like I have sacrificed my relationship with him so he and his father have a great one, now I am making our time together more quality. I know when he is older he will understand what I do for him and will thank me. I thank my dad for what he's done to teach me and help me in life. I better get back to finals papers though!!! 3 class periods left then I am done till fall! :o) Have a great day everyone!

    Great job sticking with it even through the harder days! I find any sort of visual aid such as a calendar really helpful and motivating too. I love the ticker on this sight!!! Keep it up! YOU CAN DO IT!

    You're doing great! You are putting in the effort and seeing the changes in all areas of your life. It makes me so happy to see how much happier and stronger you are. That is a great idea to put the calendars up, though. You are one smart whipper-snapper and almost done with your classes. Go, big sister!!
