Wow! It has been a long time.....

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Here is why:
I was hit bad this year with the winter blues after the holidays, a lot of personal issues to deal with and changes that finally all of them piled up on me and got the best of me.
Well after 4 month of feeling sorry for my self, being depress and not able to get a handle on my new healthy life style, gaining 9 lbs of the ones lost by my hard work and dedication I finally took back the rains and I'm sure I'm going in the right direction.
I have been dedicating a lot of time to Spark Coach and to this web site to make sure I did not derail myself completely....I kept eating healthy but I had put my measuring cups, spoons & scale away.....bottom line I was not being completely honest to myself. I bought the Spark Solution book but does not come out until May I had to do it on my own until then so I could regain the motivation and dedication that I had before the Holidays.
I feel a little bad because 3 weeks ago I got a real bad flue that lasted a whole week (very rare for me) and I lost 7 of those 9 lbs. So that was my turning point, beside realizing that by being depress and down I had gotten sick and let my immune system (defense) down. Well for the last 2 weeks I have pulled out my measuring cups, spoons, smaller plates and my scale. I have been eating more fruits and veggies and I also have up my fitness minutes and doing a lot of different things not just cardio exercise.
I can't wait until I get my Spark Solution book but for now I'm just going back to my good behavior.
I will give an update in a couple of weeks and I will let you know about the book when I receive it.
Until next time keep Sparking!

    Sounds like you did a great job in analyzing and fixing the situation. I know the flu helped but I hate being sick and I'm sure you do, too. I never seem to lose when I'm sick-I have this really backward system.
