So I started spark people a few years ago when I started college. I did great lost a good amount of weight and I was happy with that. But life throws you curves. My mom was diagnosed with cancer, I was promoted at my job which meant more hours working less time for college, and my relationship of several years was going down hill. He didn''t support me in my life decisions and never tried to get involved with anything I was involved in. Instead of making a life together we made a life that revolved around him and his wants and his hobbies that we barley had money for but some how always managed to get money so he could have what he wanted. It didn''t matter that we needed our own home after living with his parents for over four years it didn''t matter if we needed cloths because the others were literally falling apart...nothing mattered but him. I had originally only started college cause if I made the big bucks he wouldn''t have to work. I could provide for us and a family while he sat at home. I resented going to college for a long time and doubted even going back. It had to end. The relationship was no longer healthy for either of us. I didn''t love him anymore. I had been pushed away and put as a last priority for to long and our relationship was never gonna go anywhere...so I left. I quit college to work full time and to focus on trying to get back on my feet after the big "break up". My now husband stepped in soon after and literally swept me off my feet! I still maintained a gym schedule for a few months into our new relationship but I eventually decided that my money would be spent better else where. After all I was living with my mom again at age 23 and trying to find a apartment that I could afford all while still being able to pay my car payment and insurance. My hubby decided that we should find a place together so we set out in search of our first place. Soon after moving into our apartment things got comfortable and exercising was put on the back burner...the very back burner...so far back in the pits of darkness that no man ever dared step forward to find it(lol sorry had to throw that in there). It also didn''t help matters that my momma and nana taught me how to cook...really good. And soon we both started to pack on the pounds. I of course gained all my weight back plus some:/ it''s now been almost two years since we started dating and it May it will be a year that we are married. I have decided to go back to school for me no one else. I have changed my career choice to one I have always been interested in but never pursued because it didn''t make a ton of money. I am going back to college to obtain my teaching degree and I am also going to start dieting and exercising again with the help of my very supportive hubby:) my mom has now been in remission for almost three years. I try to go with my mom to as many of her appointments for blood work and such as I can. My grandmother used to always go since I usually was stuck at work but she passed away last November on the 19th(R.I.P Nana). My boss has been better about working with my schedule since then but I still miss a few sometimes. So with all this said I am hoping to get back on the right track and reach my goal weight! I''m sorry this is so long it''s just been a while...a long while.

    This is the day that we celebrate when the Mexican army defeated the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. We also celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. So, celebrate Cinco de Mayo in your own special way. Adios!

    Happy Earth Day! Did you know that in America we throw away nearly 38 BILLION plastic bags a year just in the United States? Take note and do something green for the environment starting today. Even if you do other things, try and take on one more thing to do that will make this world a better place for generations to come. Change to energy saving light bulbs, recycle your paper products, compost, donate old clothing, use a re-usable water bottle or just say no to plastic bags and bottles. Pick something, just one thing to change that you do and keep on doing it. Doing just one thing can make the difference.

    We're learning to take care of our bodies, let's now start with our environment. Celebrate the Earth today!

    Hello there! How was your Easter holiday? The weather over here in Denver will have a slight change to possibly snow overnight. Yep, I said snow. It's actually kind of normal to get at least one more snowstorm as late as May sometimes. Well, I wanted to drop in and wish you all the best this week and give you a quote for the week.

    Think of your body as your autobiography: How do you want yours to read? Start a new chapter today! (Denise Austin)

    My Two Cents Worth: It's never to late to start something new. If you've been slacking or having problems on your journey let it go and start fresh today. That's the beauty of your life, you have the say how it's going to be. You can learn and improve it or let it just be and do nothing. Your choice. Which road will you take? Have a great week!!!
