    Thanks for the hug, CJ. I sure needed it. I'm sending you a Spark Mail.

    I'm so happy you are back, because I missed the crap out of you! emoticon

    While you were gone, I felt the need to go back to basics, too. I'd slacked off my exercise, only doing the challenge videos and not adding in the cardio, so my fitness suffered a bit. I think my mood and my motivation are so incredibly linked to exercising regularly.

    Now, I'm weighing and measuring again, tracking all my food and recording every fitness minute. I'd even neglected climbing stairs, but I'm back doing that now, too.

    I'd love to hear all about your trip, if you'd care to share! Isn't it funny how sometimes we need to take what we think is a step backwards in order to propel ourselves forward? I think you are definitely on the right track with your exercise and most importantly, it's sustainable!

    Thank you so very much for reading and commenting on my blog, Loving Yourself: My Body Pledge of Allegiance, and for signing on by leaving a comment, and taking the pledge to be your own champion!

    I feel more strongly than ever that this is indeed the first hurdle we must conquer. Because of all the positive feedback I have received during this series from those who have been reading and following, I am going to continue with helping not only myself, but those who have committed via this pledge made to themselves to do that with more blogs on this topic. I am confident that we can move forward from here. This was the first step off the starting line. Let's move forward together!

    Many fellow Spark Friends have already committed to and taken the Body Pledge of Allegiance, and more are joining each day. These small actions can make a big difference. It is about coming together and offering our strength to one another. Together we are uniting our conviction, and echoing the voices of ourselves, and for women and girls everywhere to love ourselves as we are, no matter where we are. It is the energy of the this conviction and the movement that will propel us all forward into becoming who we wish to truly be, and ultimately, to achieving all that we are striving to achieve, not only here, but in our lives.

    So very glad that you have also arrived at this conclusion. It is so easily overlooked. I do hope that you will stop by to read and comment on the Loving Yourself blogs as the series continues. I'm sure that you have, and will discover that you have things to share with the rest of us as you move forward, too. It's so amazing how we are able to help one another in the smallest ways.

    Let's “Spark a mini revolution of loving ourselves”! Together we can do it!
