When life gets busy my good habits are the first to tumble. This summer I was on the go and at best maintained my weight. I really enjoyed the summer and likely will never have another one like it. Now fall is here and I am resetting my priorities.
In the last month 2 former co-workers had terminal diseases and one has passed. They were younger than me and both we over weight. In the last 5.5 years I have been Sparking I think about the weight loss journey with the destination being a more attractive, healthy, slim body. Now I am adding longevity!
Hubby has continued to exercise and lose weight and is an excellent Sparker. He has long early morning walks so he gets it out of the way. It started with my desire to get out walking early in the morning while we were in Mexico in Feb. When I arrived home I contracted croup and was sick for a few weeks. Alas, I did not regain the momentum, but I am pleased that hubby continued.
I am will be away for 3 weeks travelling in Alberta and maybe Saskatchewan too. I want to reset my priorities and focus on my health again. During this time I will exercise 2 hours daily and have nutritious calorie appropriate meals. Can 3 weeks change my life? I will let you know when I get back.
