A little about me

Thursday, March 14, 2013

My name is Nicole and I am married with two wonderful girls. I started SP (for the 3rd or 4th time) because i really want to get into shape. (but would always quit after a few days or weeks) I have had quite a bit of small heath concerns, especially in the last year. Such as, swollen ankles, water retention, dizzy, tired, weak, troubles sleeping, smoking, alcoholism, bloating and distended belly, depression, bad circulation and mood swings, the list goes on and on. I've had lots of test done and have came to the conclusion that i was just really lazy and had bad eating and drinking habits.
I have been on here for about a month or two and i am on week 3 of a fitness challenge and can't believe how much my life has changed. All it took was some motivation, confidence and exercise. I now have a lot more energy, i sleep better at night and my overall mood has improved. I'm starting to think that maybe age was catching up with me, and i've always had an excuse for my laziness. Well not any more. I've already started and it would make no sense to quit now.
I love the teams on here. They have helped me realize that I am not alone, and they help build my confidence and motivate me. It's nice to know that there are people out there that care and are going through the same thing. I am really excited and can't wait to continue my new journey. Good luck to all and never give up! emoticon

    Sounds like you are doing great!!!

    I'm doing the baby steps...
    trying, but realizing every day isn't going to be perfect,
    as long as I get right back to trying.

    Good Luck, I look forward to taking this journey with you!
