Time for a much needed up date: I'm now 49 and I still have 2 beautiful daughters - but I now have two beautiful grand daughters as well. It has been a long time since I've been on spark. And I can honestly say I never should have left. A lot has happened. I've gotten divorced, I injured my knee, I moved, I changed jobs, I changed jobs again, I settled in with the man of my dreams, and I regained all the weight I had lost plus a few extra pounds. I'm ashamed of myself. For letting myself fall back into my old habits.

Although I have started and stopped this process 100 times. this time it's going to stick. I've got a solid plan. I've got support. And I've got the motivation of my two beautiful granddaughters who do not want to lose their grandmother. My own daughters weren't very lucky with that as my mother passed away when they were very young. I don't want to my granddaughters to relive that legacy. I need to make these changes now. I have no more time to waste.

The last time I set goals here at spark people was 2012 it's now 2017 and I'm in the worst shape of my life. I've got to start small so that this is a lifestyle change.

I intend on being active 365 days this year a minimum of 10 minutes a day

I also plan on trying to run again. I will start slow and hopefully build back up to racing again.

so that is what I have planned so far - and I'll update as we move forward. I'm looking forward to a very fulfillig year ahead.

I know this journey is long and not without some barriers, but I know I can make it. I have the power of the Spark and all my spark friends. I have been taking it easy the few last year and have realized that the only one suffering here is me. I am doing this to myself - I am creating my own future and my future is now - I have set a goal and I am aiming to reach it.

so my friends - I invite you to join me - together we can make a difference in our health and happiness. together we can motivate each other and inspire ourselves and those around us. together we are strong and able to reach amazing hights. So reach out and join a team - gather support - reach for your dreams. Because once you are there and take a look back at all you've been through and how you made it to where you are today - you will stand proud and tall knowing that you are worth it.

Find that SPARK today and make it happen!

it it time to make the Impossible, Possible! just one day at a time!
