WITH FITNESS/EXERCISE!!! In a blog with the same title as above I explain how I got off track and how I'm getting back on track. So now that I know where I stand and I have found my motivation and LOVE once more of taking care of my health I'm ready to make some permanent changes! JOIN ME!!! (Please read my goals and the extra info about myself. Perhaps we have something in common and can become sparkbuddies!)

My specific goals with time line~
*Reach 155 lbs by 10/4/15*
*Reach 145 lbs by 11/8/15*
*Reach 133 lbs by 12/20/15*
*Reach 120 lbs by 1/31/16*

[I want to reach my ultimate goal in about 5.5 months.]

I'm an alcoholic and am fighting to stay sober each day. SparkPeople is a place where I feel supported a free to talk about my daily struggles. I want to get and STAY sober long term. I want to lose 45 pounds. I want to become balanced and learn to forgive myself and leave the past in the past. I want to become more organized and to be a better mom also.

I am here to get help to reach my goals as well as help others to reach theirs too. Every day sober, every hour sober, every moment sober is a small victory for me. My alcoholism is very much linked to my whole life. Getting sober means more to me than what first may appear to the eyes.

Being sober for me means to live, to be present in my own life as well as the lives of those around me that i love. It means finding my sanity again. It means becoming a more spiritual person. It means being healthy. It means actually making an effort in my life again.

I hope if you're reading this that we can help each other on this journey, no matter what your goals are, because truly we all just want the same thing don't we? To be happy and healthy! :)

Fitness Minutes: 1,222

My Goals:
* Pray every day and do my personal Bible study

* Work out 5 days a week (3 days cardio/ 2 days strength training)

* Get my house organized

These goals support my main goal to be sober so that I can be a better person.

My Program:
I go on walks, play badminton and garden, bike riding and hiking too [mostly with my family We love to be outside together]. I also like to do DVD workouts like Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire and PiYo. I have a treadmill for cold rainy days too.

I am tracking the foods I eat and any healthy activities so I can become more aware of my choices and make better ones.

Some more goals:

Eating more fruits, vegetables and greens, while cutting down on bad fats, junk food, late night eating, over eating. Making myself get up and MOVE. Stop being sedentary!

I take supplements every day as well as fiber to help feel better, fuller and healthier.

Personal Information:
More about me:

I have 2 daughters, I'm happily married, stay at home mom. Most days I get up and have my morning coffee, go outside [with my body guard, and baby, my pit bull], I pray, I read some thing spiritual and then write in my journal. I enjoy a simple life. Besides journaling I like to:

charcoal sketch,
listen to music,
play on my piano [keyboard],
sometimes write short stories or poems,
go to the zoo and gardens,
watch the stars,
and [this year] take trips to the roller coaster park! :-)

Maybe later I'll add to this list, lol.

Other Information:
Weigh Ins:

08/25/15~ 166 lbs

    emoticon Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own LOVE. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but my doing what you can to make grace happen by following His will yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. Make a difference in your life and the lives of others by choosing joy and sharing it with others. You lead by example. Happy Valentine's Day! emoticon

    emoticon Actions we take today affect how we live tomorrow. If we know what we want...if we listen to our heart's desire, write down our goals, and keep them in mind with every action we take...we create our dreams. We turn our wishes into goals and our goals into reality. We visualize the life we want and create it for ourselves.

    Blessings today and always!

    emoticon Blessings today and always! I just want to share some thoughts about life.\ from Mother Teresa who has truly inspired me and continues to motivate me to become a better person.

    Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
    Life is a beauty, admire it.
    Life is a dream, realize it.
    Life is a challenge, meet it.
    Life is a duty, complete it.
    Life is a game, play it.
    Life is a promise, fulfill it. '
    Life is sorrow, overcome it.
    Life is a song, sing it.
    Life is a struggle, accept it.
    Life is a tragedy, confront it.
    Life is an adventure, dare it.
    Life is luck, make it.
    Life is life, fight for it.

    I will continue living each day with an attitude of gratitude. So many opportunities await us if we only choose to become involved by truly living life fully one day at a time.

    emoticon So blessed and happy to be your friend

    During my morning mediation and prayer time, I realized something very important......ATTITUDE. Do I truly have an Attitude of Gratitude? It's time for me to realize that my ATTITUDE toward the life I'm living and the people in it can have a tangible,. measurable and profound effect on what happens to me day by day. If I expect good, then surely good will come to me. If I try to each day to base my attitude and point of view on a spiritual foundation, I know it will change all the circumstances of my life for the better. Through daily communion with God my spirituality will be maintained.

    During this month of November which celebrates THANKSGIVING may you and I remember to have an Attitude of Gratitude.......and may we continue to have it 365 days a year!

    I am so thankful you are my emoticon emoticon
