February 2021 Whoa! Life has gotten so crazy that I don't even recognize myself anymore. I'm now a nurse, fighting battles in the ICU and now ER. Who knew I'd be working through a major world pandemic? I've been working on daily exercise for over a week and am now ready to add on food management. As always striving for health and fitness, which includes weight loss. I'm finally free of the night shift life and pray that now I can finally succeed at being healthy! Time to set up some mini goals and make some major changes, one baby step at a time!! June 2015 Here I am again. Updating that I'm back after deciding that I could do it on my own. Why am I able to talk myself into that way of thinking? Well, I'm back and have set up some 6 week mini-goals and I know the next six weeks will be filled with success and will be a great springboard for future six week goals. I have been running a fair amount lately and was even really excited for a Ragnar Relay that is in October. Too bad it costs way more than I can afford, but the goal is still there and there will be other Ragnar's!! I will continue to train for a 10K and follow my six week plan!! January 2015 Whoa, how life has changed. Changed jobs, bought a house, working my way towards nursing school, and wanting to find a new way to just be. A way to be me, a way to be true to myself, a way to love who I am, and a way to be healthy. Caffiene free for about 2 weeks now. Cutting sugar is a bit harder, but I'm aiming for as little as possible. Trying to get some sort of handle on what's happening in my body. July 2013 Went away for a while, but found my way back. In the last year plus I've been busy! Working as a CNA, being a wife and mom, and moving to Georgia! Yep, sold our house, packed our stuff in a 24ft moving truck, and drove to Georgia!! Crazy times, but life is adventure, so bring it on!! March 2012 Seriously? A year and then some? I'm here and not here, depending on my work schedule. I'm keeping my healthy habits and trying to lose those last pesky pounds. My job is very physical, so I know I've gained muscle mass. I have the "big guns" to prove it :) Though adding muscle is good, it's hard to see the scale go up. Sometimes I know it's because the nighttime snack monster has hit, but I'm slowly working on banishing him!! Brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed by 8pm seems to be helping. I'm determined that this will be the year that I reach my goal weight and move towards maintenance. November 2011 How time flies! 10 months Sparking and I'm still here. Growing, changing, adapting, fighting, failing, succeeding, trusting, and loving every day. I've been struggling to get and stay below 150. Fall 10 times, get up 11. Also working on not worrying. Faith like a mustard seed!! April 2011 Almost 3 months sparking. I'm now 29, and I love exercise, especially running. Its ME time. I'm still fighting with my inner emotional eater, but most days I win. SP is amazing!! I thank God for every day, every moment I have here on earth and I hope to make Him so proud. January 2011 I'm a 28 year old SAHM of 2. They keep me busy and active, but I am an emotional eater and I love food. I hate exercise, but have been finding ways to do it anyway. Loving SP and the tools!! Hoping to heal not only my body, but also my heart and mind. God is faithful and I put my hope and trust in Him alone!!
