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! emoticon emoticon

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! emoticon emoticon

So, anyway... Here's to my COMEBACK!!! emoticon
