I am so excited about Spring. I have so many things I want to do. I am getting ready to spruce up the yard and get ready to celebrate Easter with my family. So happy and thankful for my family. They are the joy of my life!

2012 was such a great year of accomplishments for me. I stuck with going to the gym one more year. (This makes 2.5 years) I graduated with a master¡¦s degree in June. I started horseback riding lessons and even survived getting bucked off twice and have continued to stick with it. I tried kayaking for the first time and loved it. I paid off a considerable amount of household debt.
2013 I plan on continuing and stepping up my fitness routine. I am going to shed that last 30 pounds this year! I started the new year by vigorously decluttering my home. I am repurposing two rooms in my home and am determined to arrange my home in a way that best suits our needs. I have a couple credit cards that I am thinking about getting rid of¡Kor at least the debt. ƒº I have two vacations in mind for 2013 and am looking forward to spending some down time with my family. As of today I am on my 3rd book on tape this year. I love listening to audible books while I clean house, commute and get ready for work each day!
In a few months I plan to revisit my blog and assess my progress.
Happy New Year my spark buddies!

I am only two quarters away from graduating. I am also going to do everything in my power to lose 30 pounds before then.

I started walking again yesterday and have managed to stay within my calorie range, so here is to a good start.

I am so glad to be closing in on degree completion, then I will have all my free time back. Yipee!

I have a demanding career. Like many women there are multiple demands on my private time too. As a full time graduate student, mother of 6 and grandmother of 9, I am spread a little thin.
Summer quarter of 2011 marks the beginning of the last year of college for me (I think).
As a side note, I graduated with my bachelor degree the same year and month my oldest grandson graduated from high school. As I plugged along in school I use to joke I would graduate when my grandson did. Little did I know it was a prophetic statement. lol

    Wow! You must be that energizer bunny I keep hearing about!
    Your energy just bounces off your page and must motivate everyone that stops by!
    Congratulations on all of your accomplishments and your weight loss thus far.
    I have no doubt that you are going to nail those last 30 pounds. emoticon

    Happy Easter! emoticon

    P.S. Thank you for the red shoes. :)

    Thank you for stopping by my page and your very kind comments. Intermittent fasting was the beginning of the healthy way I am finally living. If I can ever be of any help let me know. It looks like you are doing great!

    Julie, thank you for reading and commenting on my blog! I really appreciate the insight that you were able to give me on my "30 and still single" situation. It gives me belief in the fact that life is about the journey and not the destination. I try to remind myself that milestones don't have to be set at certain ages (e.g., marriage, kids, etc.).

    Thanks again :D
