4 year Anniversary on Sparkpeople! 41 years married!

Well that came around as quick as!

4 years of meeting wonderful supportive people, 4 years of being part of my Sparkfriends lives through happy events and sad times.

I was living in Santiago Chile when I discovered Sparkpeople through C25K. Some one on that website suggested to someone else to look up as it was FREE and was a great site for exercise, eating plans and lots of support and information.

Since coming back from Chile, I have gone from not working at all, to working full time. This has seriously impacted on time spent on Sparkpeople and exercising. I am and I am sure you are as well, working out how to get our regular exercise into our busy lives. emoticon

I have learnt that this weight loss saga has become so much more than just trying to lose weight.

It is about having a healthy lifestyle and a healthy attitude to food and recognising that I am an emotional eater! I honestly did not think I was an emotional eater, but in the last few weeks when my stress levels have been high I resort to sweet food and bread. And even while I am eating this food, but I have a voice telling me this is not a healthy choice, and then there is another voice saying, "it tastes nice and I feel terrible and eating this sweet food will make me feel better" emoticon I have been buying things like a vanilla slice at a bakery and scoff it all down before I get home! emoticon

emoticon Tomorrow is a new beginning and I will eat healthy and drink 8 glasses of water.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday as Graeme had to work today which is the date of our actual anniversary. emoticon

We went to a beautiful park and took a picnic lunch. emoticon Prior to going I managed a 5 km walk with Sooty, so felt OK about having a glass of white wine.

Have just had 4 days off work, so go back tomorrow and a new set of new mother's will be coming to their first session of their parenting group. I am looking forward to facilitating this group and seeing how they grow and develop over the next 4 weeks. emoticon

Hope you are all having a great week. emoticon
