Taking a step back
Wednesday, August 26, 2009
Sometimes I need to take a step back and look at the big picture and see what I have accomplished since May 10 when I started SparkPeople again SERIOUSLY. I lost 10 pounds since that time, I am eating very healthy food and actually crave it, I feel physically great and my blood pressure is GREAT. I am fitting in archived clothing once again piece by piece and I care alot more for my general appearance. I am not drinking much alcohol anymore and that in itself was starting to become a potential problem. I am completely off any antidepressant and anti-anxiety meds and I thank God for that.
I am exercising...can you believe that (I ask myself)? Even a week ago i was having a pathetic pity party and that hopefully is past me. I am currently doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and is the first DVD that I have done. I really like it and theworkout goes by fast and who doesn't appreciate that? I went from walking to running and will participate in my first ever road race which is a 5K in my hometown this coming Saturday.
Most importantly I am getting control of myself and all of the bad habits I had with everyday living. I truly think my first wakeup call is when my mom past away from breast cancer and at that time I vowed I would take great care of myself. I will not ignore wonky symptoms that may pop up thinking they will go away. I am being proactive with my health and SparkPeople is teaching me just how to do that. I will br forever grateful for this wonderful website and all the resources and tools SparkPeople has to offer. I am very thankful for the special SParkFriends that I have made. You Spark Folks...and you know who you are...have made this journey of mine very special. Thank you for your support and encouragement. I sncerely appreciate YOU.
I WILL SUCCEED FOR I AM WORTH IT!
