Reflecting...

Saturday, December 18, 2010

Well, today has been productive. I finished almost all my Christmas shopping after going to watch a few of my first graders play basketball. And all this happened by noon!

Anyway looking at this past year, tons of things have happened. Let's look back at it all...
Dec. 10, 2009 I got engaged
Jan. 2010 Started a weight loss efforts...lost 7 lbs by March then gained it all back
March 13, 2010 Signed contract to build a house with fiancé
May Finished my first year as a first grade teacher and started coaching cheerleading
June 5, 2010 Married love of my life
June 28, 2010 Closed on house moved in two days later!
Aug. 2010 started second year of teaching and ditched my waitressing job FINALLY after 6 years.
November 2010 Started my weight loss journey again after gaining 7+ lbs this year.
November 2010 Started coaching tumbling classes...first step to my dream of owning or running a gymnastics/cheer business!

Currently, preparing my first school cheerleading squad for a National Championship. Spending my first Christmas with my husband in our brand new home. Already lost 9 lbs in just a little over a month. Bought all my family gifts for Christmas that I am finally proud of giving. My dad got a job offer in France and now my parents are planning a move to France in the next month or so.

All the things I am doing and have done are things that create who I am. I am proud of the person I am. I am thankful for the blessing and life I have been given. All the things I have been through and will be through are creating the person I am and will become. I love my life and wouldn't change it for the world.

My past life has led me to this journey I am on now. I want to be healthier, I want to be successful, I want to be a role model for my students and cheerleaders, and I want to be a wonderful wife. In order to be all of these, I have to be healthier...and to be this, I had to start my weight loss journey. This journey is making me a better person in every way. I eat better, I appreciate better, I work harder...it is a domino effect. Because of a desire to be healthier, everything in my life is changing for the better. I love what this is doing for me.

Thank you Spark People and friends for all you have done to help me better my life!
