Gone but not forgotten

Sunday, August 25, 2013

While I have been gone this summer, I have not forgotten my spark goals. I have been still working towards eating healthier and taking better care of myself. I am down to 207 now! That puts me down and kept off 15 pounds!!!!! I am making healthier choices, although I still have room to grow here and started a fairly consistent workout pattern. I am feeling the benefits of this!!!! I feel better and have way more energy when I work out and eat right. That is motivating to continue doing so! I am starting a semi, 60 day challenge with a friend where we are reading a devotional together from Made to Crave and reading through the book together. I am hoping this will give me some accountability. I am also going to be using the guidelines I set before for real food. This time around though, I am starting with God. I am going to go week by week and re-asses at the end of the week if I have made enough progress to move on or if I need a few more days to continue. I am also going to work at posting here more often again. Taking small steps to create big changes.

It was a summer of challenge and change for me. My marriage was threatened and I was forced to look for myself and find who I am. My marriage is getting better but I have really evaluated who I am and how I am different at this size then I was before. It isn't about looks complete though. It is about how I feel. With a 1 and a half year old and working full time, I need all the energy I can get!

***Disclosure***** Posts following this one will be of religious nature and I will be talking about how God has been working or moving in my life. If this offends you, please feel free to not read my posts. I am not trying to be harsh but upfront and real with my beliefs. I do believe that only through craving God and looking to Him for strength and support will I be able to lose the weight and get healthy
