Hello, SparkWorld - I’m back! Well, I never really left - I’ve been here nearly everyday, I’ve just been very quiet.
The last year has been one of challenges for me and I’m sorry to say that a few of those challenges got the better of me. I broke my ankle in the early spring and then had surgery in the fall - thanks in part to those events, I started allowing a few old habits to sneak back into my daily routine and I’ve gained a few pounds. That officially stops today, though! I’m back to tracking my food on the Nutrition Tracker - the single biggest asset that I had when I lost 110 pounds a few years ago.
I have other bigger and even better news for my Spark Friends though - I’m adopting a baby! My little boy is due to arrive on May 9, 2011 0 another reason to get back to that healthier lifestyle! I’m currently scrambling to raise the last of the funds that I need in order to complete the adoption when the baby arrives - adoption is expensive! I’ve cut back in
every area of my life and coupons have become my new best friends! I’m planning several fundraisers during the next few months - you can follow my progress over at on Facebook by joining my group "My Adoption Journey" at
With so much going on, 2011 looks to be a VERY busy year - but I promise to try to be more of a presence around here.
Here’s looking forward to a WONDERFUL year!
