Sunday, June 16, 2013

Yesterday was the end of something. I blogged on a personal for 3+ years and yesterday, after talking to my husband about what was best for me I decided that it was time to say goodbye. I loved blogging for a long time, but since my life started changing at a million miles an hour (getting married, moving 7hrs south, getting a new job, adjusting to being a wife, etc) the blog just wasn't changing along with it. It was holding me back. Keeping me in the past and making hold on to some things that I really need to move past.

My blog used to inspire me to change but I got too bogged down with link ups, challenges and the number of followers I had. I was blogging for other people and lost what I had loved for so long...a place to share my thoughts and write. It used to be a place to write...but turned into a stress to figure out what to write and how to best impress my readers.

I woke up this morning with the thought that today was Day One. My first day without having the blog. What was I going to do with the time? What was the next step I needed to take? I have being trying to get healthy on my own and it just hadn't been working. I thought of that first. And then I remembered Sparkpeople. I had tried it a couple years ago and thought that this site could be what I needed right now.

Here are some of my long term goals:
~Lose 30lbs.
~Get more active.
~Become healthy before having kids.
~Be a healthier cook for my husband and I.
~Look up healthy living activities in my new community and surrounding areas and get involved.

My Goals for this week:
1. Go on three bike rides.
2. Eat veggies with every lunch and dinner.
3. Drink 4 bottles of water every day.
4. Get at least 10 minutes of activity every day.
5. Make my inspiration collage..."Why I Want To Get Healthy"

I am going to have five goals each week and update how I did on them each week. I like this because it is a tangible way to hold myself accountable.

I am looking forward to making some friends on sparkpeople because we are all in this together! Please comment/add me as a friend...I would love to connect with you!

Until next time,
kt :)

    I'm excited to be the first to say, Welcome to SparkPeople! This is a pretty fantastic place. I've been around since 2007 (wow!!), but am just returning after a hiatus (see my blog for the zillion things that have gone on while I was gone!).

Congrats on the wedding and the move - that was me in 2009! I got married, moved from St. Louis to NC, started a new job, and bought our first house, all within about 3 weeks. It was total chaos, but the really good kind of chaos :)

If you have any questions about Spark, ask me! I am happy to point you in the right direction or give advice, a shoulder to cry on, etc. Good luck, and welcome!!
