3 week sparking cutback

Sunday, December 11, 2011

it is very clear that if i want to leave for NY in 8 days with all my due work turned in and not have a nervous breakdown first, and then have a wonderful time with my family and friends in NY celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary (and weighing what i did when i left NY 27 years ago for a "sabbatical" and cooking classes in France), i need to focus on work this week and family and friends for the holidays. sparking will continue, especially running, walking (especially in NY); portion control and wise choices will be a major goal (especially in NY); will try to track food & fitness as much as possible, will post occasional updates, but will try to minimize following friend feeds, reading new blogs, responding, blogging, etc. Forgive me if i miss something important (& send me a sparkmail if you want to tell me anything i shouldn't miss) and have a wonderful wonderful holiday season with as many wise choices as possible but don't beat yourselves up for the not so good ones.
it has been very wonderful sharing this experience and my thus-far success with you. your support has been instrumental and your inspiration ... inspirational. (((((((sparkfriends)))))))

    All the best for the 8 days ahead and the work to finish! I love this photo of you, and it is such an achievement to be the same weight as you were 27 years ago! I am sure you'll have a fantastic time in NYC for your anniversary, and that will be the best reward!

    So cute! What a lovely picture to share!
    I hope you'll have a wonderful time in New York - I can't believe it's the end-of-the-year celebrations already... Time flies! But as long as it's filled with meaningful quests like ours, it's all worth it!
    See you soon!

    Happy Anniversary, Bon Voyage, and enjoy doing what needs to be done! I like the spark app on my phone for checking in on the go, but I know the pull back need. It feels a little weird not to keep up, but I honor your focus! Keep up the focus, and make those dreams your reality!

    Saw your blog as a member of the 50+maintainers team. Enjoy your trip and happy anniversary, I checked out your page and you look great. I am a slow runner but before SP I would never have run anywhere

    Just like to say that Striver looks fantastic, only a few minor differences from the wedding photo...

    Have a good one, and I'll wish you all the rest nearer the date!
