Oh how I love my Spark Friends, let me count the ways: 1.) You all are always checking in 2.) You genuinely care 3.) You haunt my dreams and thoughts 4.) You are sticking to your goals.
Having friends like you all are necessary. I have been enjoying my husband, enjoying home, eating, drinking and being merry to the tune of 12 additional pounds. It was fun while it lasted but the truth is, your body knows what you need and I was genuinely happier and had more energy when my lifestyle was healthier. I slept better, sex was better, my skin was better, my clothes looked better on me. I wore less makeup, I was more self-assured, and I had less morning breath.
My husband and I have some goals in these next several months and one of them in particular will require me to regain my healthy streak. For him, he has applied to be a Correctional Officer. That job is MADE for him. That will gain him the experience necessary to join the Police force. He takes his written exam next week and will then interview thereafter. Please say a prayer or two for him.
We are also planning on starting a family. When we start is contingent on my health. I have a severely incompitent cervix. I need to be as healthy as possible to ensure a successful pregnancy. We have decided that once I lose 18 pounds, I will have the IUD removed so that we can try to get pregnant. My gynocologist believes that I will get pregnant the moment they take it out. We shall see! I realistically believe that I can get rid of those 18 pounds in 3 months. My weight all boils down to my eating habits. I love carbs and sweets. Sugar, salt and flour. All things that I should despise. The truth is, though, that i love fruits and vegetables as well as lean protein. Once I start cooking clean meals again, I know my cravings will change.
But anywho. I am so glad to see my Sparklers doing well. Its time for me to do some random drive-bys of my friends' blogs. Have a successful day!
