Thank you all for your well wishes. I am feeling better. I am not sure what is was - the 24 hour flu or something I ate. I went to bed early and slept for almost 12 hours!!

This morning I went to a seminar at the gym and signed up for the New Year's Transformation Challenge with one of the new personal trainers. It will run for 8 weeks and there will be 8 group sessions. I am also looking at doing 8 personal sessions with him.

It was a gorgeous day today - hard to believe it is the middle of January. My husband and I went for a a walk down in the canyon trail behind our house. We didn't need to wear a coat!

One thing I realized today -- as my husband and I talked -- I lost a lot of accountability last fall. I lost my personal trainer and I stopped going to TOPS. Plus, there was the big letdown of the wedding being over and then we headed into the holiday season. I started being exhausted. All these factors came together at once and I kinda lost it and I began to gain weight. I am so glad I had SP to keep me going or it could have been worse.

I am hoping with my thyroid medication, the gym challenge, and SP challenges and friends that I am back on the road to Onderland!!

Daily Goals:
1) Blog -- emoticon
2) Exercise at least 10 minutes. emoticon 45 min (stationary bike & walk)
3) Eat at least 3 freggies a day.. emoticon 3 servings

    Good to have the perspective of what changed, to help you figure out how to renew your efforts. Like the idea of the group gym sessions as well as a 1:1 with the trainer! May God restore your strength!

    So glad you're feeling better. Major milestones have a way of catching us off guard. Take away such a big reason we've worked so diligently to be healthy, and we sometimes forget how getting healthy just for us (without the milestone) is as valid a reason to stay the course. So many of us can relate whether it be a vacation cruise, reunion, or similar special celebration. Keep Sparkin' On! Hug, hug -- Evelyn
