Making a COMEBACK!!
Sunday, October 23, 2011
Well, I fell off the SparkWagon over a year ago when I started having problems with my shoulder, and eventually surgery. Now I am looking at my 25th HS reunion coming up next summer, and as adults, we all know how FAST time flies, so I decided to get my buns in gear!!
Started back with the Food tracker, and now gotta dig out those food scales and get back to measuring my portion sizes. I don't do too bad now guesstimating sizes, but my food choices in general are not always healthy ones!
The local Parks and Rec has opened a new Rec center, offering a lot more indoor exercise programs that I fully intend on taking advantage of: Zumba 3x per week and "Boot Camp" twice a week. I will also be getting back into the C25k program, which I really liked doing when I quit the last time....
I applied for a promotion here at work and didn't get it (even though I was the ONLY one to apply), so, last May, I started going back to school to finish my degree through an adult online degree completion program. It's through George Fox University, a Christian University in Oregon. I am about 1/3 of the way through and will graduate in August 2012. The degree is Management and Organizational Leadership. If my current employer doesn't promote me, maybe somebody else will!
During the time I have been off the wagon, I started back smoking on a long road trip to California... just because I was bored and tired and stressed out.... I SO wish I hadn't and now I have another bad habit to kick. I had quit for 8 years!! Grrr!
So, anyway... Here's to my COMEBACK!!!
