Welcome to 2012 !

Thursday, January 05, 2012

Thanksgiving and Christmas 2011 came and went by so fast. The holidays just seemed to FLY by. Well - actually the entire year of 2011 went by VERY fast ! So - here we are in 2012.....

The past week or so I have been fighting with sinuses and trying not to get sick. Everyone around me is sick (Especially at work). So I have been trying to get EXTRA rest, drink lots of fluids, eat healthy and take sinus medication to help. There have been a few days when I was tired and more weak due to sinus issues....so I seemed to eat a bit more. I think my body needed the extra energy to fight all these germs and viruses. It seems to be working. I felt horrible on Tuesday this week and of course it was the day I had to come back to work after 5 days off. Each day this week I am feeling a little better.

Today I am actually starting to feel human again. It was my goal to start fresh in 2012 and work really hard again at my goals. The first few days haven't been "horrible" - they just haven't been as good as I hoped. I wanted to work out but didn't have the strength the past couple days. I am hoping that by the weekend I will be more myself and can start my new workout routine. I also hope that hubby finishes up most of the sweets by then so I am not tempted to eat them. LOL

So - here I am back again for another fabulous year at SPARK. I am thankful to all my friends and family who continue to support me. I think I am only a few pounds heavier than the weight I was maintaining since June 2009 when I got married. I haven't actually weighed myself since the holidays. I will get on the scale again in a few days when I know I am feeling myself again. Either way - I KNOW I need to lose a few more pounds and definitely need to TONE UP !

Best wishes to all for a wonderful & happy & healthy 2012 !!!!

    I hope you're feeling better! I hate sinus infections and they are energy-draining. Try to take extra vitamin C like in fruit or supplements. I usually take 1000 mg a day when feeling a cold coming on and when I'm sick.
