Tail Between My Legs...

Friday, April 04, 2014

I don't even know where to begin. September was a big month for us. We decided to put our house up for sale, things changed with my job, and we had some family issues to tend to. Needless to say, in true Jessica fashion, I put my needs on the back burner. Our house needed a lot of work, my job took up a lot of home time, and everything else seemed to consume my attention. Excuses set aside, I veered from my healthy lifestyle plans a bit and got lazy with all other details of my life.

The good news is that in the seven months that I had stopped using Spark People, I only gained about eight pounds, and then lost ten. My brother recently joined the Beachbody band wagon and became a "coach", thus talking me into the 21 Day Fix program. I've enjoyed the program so far. I'm about two weeks into it, and I have already lost about two inches off of all my measurements. In spite of the success that I have had with "The Fix," I came to the conclusion that I don't like journeying towards a healthier life without Spark People. I like the accountability it bestows upon me to track my calories, and exercise regimen.

I have missed all the people that I had gotten to know on Spark People, and although I am not expecting anyone to welcome me back with open arms, I do hope that life has been really great for each and every one of you, and I look forward to seeing all of your successes!
