New beginnings and I am READY!!

Saturday, August 01, 2015

It's been awhile since I was here blogging. So much has happened and set me back with injury and pain, less activity. So now I am healed pretty much after 3 months of PT and ready to start anew. I also had a Part time small job I was doing after I had retired. I did it for 1-1/2 yrs and only about 12 hrs (mornings) 3 days a week. I now have quit that work too and am not planning on working since it is too hard on my OA and not worth all the time it took away from ME. I enjoyed the work, but need to get back to my 5 day a week exercise and daily tracking of all meals. emoticon I want to be Healthy and TRIM so I can enjoy life more and spend more time with my grandkids and family.

So, I started a new plan for me on July 21 and am loving it. It is more of a Mediterranean
diet and whole foods, f+v and eliminating the white breads,pastas,sugars and No trans fat. So far it is working well and I am determined to keep going and be strong with all my meals and snacks.
I am working out 5 times a week at least 1 hr or more if possible. I feel so much better now already and this is only 10 days that I have been in full swing. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Today is August 1 and I hope I will be motivated as much as I am now as the months go on. This is a new Lifestyle for me and a WELLNESS program I cannot ever stop. It is for
me and I am worth it. emoticon
Thanks Spark friends for all your support and motivation that you have given me over the years since I started on this site. You are very encouraging and many of you have become Special Friends. We do understand the ups and downs with weight and how our lives change at times. Things happen and hold us back sometimes, but I will not let this worry me. I will Never Give Up. I believe in the POWER of Positive Thinking and I know that I will succeed.
Good luck to all of you on this journey and Be happy, healthy and honest with yourself. emoticon
Track, Move and Have FUN too! Life is good and Life is what we make it. God bless.
hugs, and thanks friends,
