Still here!

Friday, February 22, 2013

Life has been so busy, I never seem to have more than a couple of minutes at a time to do much of anything. I did want to post a quickie blog, though.

I'm still here, logging my food and fitness minutes, commenting on blogs and threads as I have a chance. Work is very busy, but so is the rest of life. I've been having a blast with a belly dancing class, and doing some personal training with my favorite trainer. I'm running as often as I can, with two half marathons in March, one or two probably half marathons in April, one in May (Portland Rock 'n Roll, woo hoo!) and my first full marathon (assuming training goes well) in June. I'm also doing another half in July along with Ragnar Northwest Passage, and I've signed on to walk 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day in September. Lots to do in order to get ready for that--team meetings, training, and of course FUND-RAISING!

I'm also getting ready to start selling Seacret skin care products, in part to help with the fund-raising (a portion of everything i sell will be going to the 3-Day) as well as to prepare for the day when my work moves to Arizona. At this point, we have no plans to move with them, but I've learned to never say never--we're trying to keep a somewhat open mind about the possibility.

So lots going on, but I really am still here, just not online a great deal. There is no way that I could have tackled all that before losing weight; I would not have had the energy or the confidence to try. I know now that I CAN keep the weight off if I'll just keep doing what I've been doing, so I won't be leaving SparkPeople any time soon.

Keep working toward your goals; you can do this!

    Sounds like things are going great guns for you now. That's the funny thing about Spark - we use it to improve our lives, and as we do, we become busier and sometimes have less Spark time available.

    Keep on keepin' on lady! Looking forward to May!

    Glad you're ok! I can understand the demands of a busy life: between work, son, gym, friends, studies, cooking, etc... I'm often running around like a headless chicken!
    I hope your marathon training goes well. When do you start? xx

    Awe, I miss you on here, but I understand completely. You are living your life and a full one at that. It's very inspiring. I've always appreciated your encouragement and advice on here. I'm so glad that you are succeeding at maintaining. It gives me so much hope for my future with all of this.
    Wow at all the races, that's fantastic. I can't wait to hear how they all go and how you do with your first Marathon, so exciting. Keep up the great work!
