Day #1 -- An introduction to me
Sunday, August 07, 2011
Hi everyone! It's Day #1 and my first Spark blog post. While I've been on Sparkpeople before, I'm back and feeling a flood of motivation that I never knew I had! I'm about 40 pounds over my goal weight and I'm ready to make changes in my life. I've been overweight for a long time and have always put everything else in my life first, and "me" last.
Three months ago, the love of my life and fiance passed away and I'm still trying to process it all. For years, we were overworked and not taking care of ourselves and he paid the ultimate price. I'm learning that my health and making time for exercise are VITAL to not only my body, but my happiness and self esteem. One huge part of my new life needs to be Sparkpeople and getting healthy (for so many reasons) and I also launched a blog (www.imbraycd.com) and joined Twitter as well. I'm trying to make something positive out of all this, as difficult as that may be...
The way I see it, there is no time like the present. I have so many reasons to get healthy and at the very least, I can blow off steam and negative energy while I exercise and put myself in a positive mood (even if it's just for a couple hours).
I cannot wait to begin this journey!
