HAPPY NEW YEAR & it's resolutions!!!

Sunday, January 02, 2011

First of all I want to wish all my wonderful Sparkfriends a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011!!!
May this be YOUR BEST EVER!!!! emoticon
As every year I have resolutions for the new year, but this year they are a bit different. YES I want to be skinny and I WILL SUCCEED because I have a different mind set, more will power and lots of reasons to stick to my plan!!!
I will stick with my exercise routine & I will stick to my healthy eating & lifestyle changes - I CAN & WILL SUCCEED!!!!
First and foremost I AM DOING THIS FOR MYSELF!!!! Only if I take care of myself can I take care of my family, be there for them & support them in this tough year ahead. I know this year will be very tempting for me as I am a big time stress eater and STRESS will be a big part of my life I'm sure with 2 sons being deployed, BUT - NOTHING I CAN NOT HANDLE!!!
emoticon emoticonINSTEAD OF EATING WHEN I GET STRESSED - I WILL EXERCISE emoticon emoticon
I will let NOTHING & NOBODY get in my way to succeed!! NO MORE EXCUSES!!!

And YES - I will still be on Facebook a lot, pretty much always signed in emoticon BUT that is to boost my own moral, because my boys will sent me a quick note or message that they are okay. Some days it's easier for them to hop online real fast while deployed than to wait in the long endless lines for a phone. And both of the boys told me they will always let the married Marines with kids get to a phone first - because they remember how much it meant to them when they were little - a phone call from Daddy!!!

I know many of you heard me say this before and YES I keep on saying I can & will succeed but still haven't BUT - I AM DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!!!!!!

emoticon2011 IS MY YEAR TO SHINE emoticon

Wishing you all the best on your journey's!!!

    emoticon for your sweet words & for your support!! As of right now both of the boys are still on american soil, one is even still home till tomorrow :)....but I sure will pass on your thanks to both of them!! Both of them have deployment dates though, so it'll get stressful here before long

    Wishing you all the best with your goals as well :) emoticon but I am determined to do this - BEACH here I come, when our Marine returns he will find a new skinny healthy Momma emoticon

    Wow -- you can do this! It sounds like you are positive and focused.

    I can't imagine to stress and worry that goes with having children deployed. I pray they return to you safely. It is children like yours that keep us safe here at home.

    Send them a thanks from me via Facebook when you get a chance.
