I am a mom to a boy who is 12 y.o. and a daughter who is 14 y.o. and i have been married 21 years already (feels like yesterday). Both kids participate in competitive sports so we are constantly on the go. I also work part time but my priority is my family.

I have always felt inadequate due to my weight. I have allowed that to dictate how i felt about myself. I don't want this to continue. I have been on Spark now for over 3 months. I have never recorded my food or any activity longer than a week so recording my food and activity for over 3 months is amazing for me. Have I lost a lot of weight since starting? - NO. That's ok. I now have identified my triggers and I now know what i need to do to get where I need to go.

1. Organize my kitchen to incorporate the tools i need and minimize temptations.
2. Meal Plan - including the kids and hubby. Open freezer space.
3. Exercise plan - 5-6 days/week.
4. Id. triggers and replace with positive behaviours. i.e. what to do while watching t.v.?

Tuesday/Thursday - 30 minute HIIT with trainers
Friday - workout dvd - i.e. Jillian Michaels - 30-60 minute

Personal Information:
I turned 47 in November 2016.
I love to read.
I have an issue about exercising. I was raised to think as exercise as a luxury not a necessity so i will put work over exercise. It takes a lot of energy for me to think otherwise. I will make it a priority.
I love dogs but won't have one until i am home - we are never home as a family.
i always put others before myself - need to change that.
i love shopping but don't feel good about myself even if i wear the clothes. i will change that once i start really applying my changes.
i love to weight lift but again getting myself to do that.

    ~* emoticon ~*~ emoticon *~Tale of Two Dogs * emoticon ~*~ emoticon *~

    There is a story they tell of two dogs.
    Both at separate times walk into the same room.
    One comes out wagging his tail while the other comes out growling.
    A woman watching this goes into the room to see
    what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad.
    To her surprise she finds a room filled with mirrors.
    The happy dog found a thousand happy dogs looking back at him
    while the angry dog saw only angry dogs growling back at him.
    "What you see in the world around you is a reflection of who you are."

    A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night and have dinner with her parents. Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time.
    Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms. The pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he'd like to buy,
    a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack. The boy insists on the family pack
    because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.
    That night, the boy shows up at the girl's parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door. "Oh, I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!" The boy
    goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated.

    The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy
    is still deep in prayer, with his head down. 10 minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy. Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over
    and whispers to the boyfriend, "I had no idea you were this religious."
    The boy turns, and whispers back, "I had no idea your father was a pharmacist."

    First you forget names...then you forget faces...then you forget
    to pull your zipper down, and then you forget to pull your zipper up.
