Day 365 - November Gratitude, part 29
Monday, November 30, 2015
Day 365.... That's 365 days of consecutive Sparking - logging in, tracking my food, and tracking my exercise. This website makes me want to focus on healthy living in a way that no other program has done for me. I am so lucky to have found this website, and decided that I needed to give 100% or more of myself to the program, because I truly believed that it would give me the results I wanted.
A whole year.... November 17th was the day I found Spark, but because of a newbie glitch, I missed one day of tracking and exercise, so November 29th was the day I started on this track that led me to today. I've lost 45 pounds, learned to love exercise, gained a body that I didn't think possible at 58 years of age. So, while the 17th was my "Sparkversary," today is my "Streakversary."
My parents had a great visit, and I fixed them a nice "B&B" breakfast (but still managed to eat healthy myself). We took my dad to the winery that has all the vintage wooden boats (called "Boatique") and met our friends Ann-Marie and Randy (and their family) there. A-M and Randy stayed with us when they were evacuated during the Valley Fire in September. It was nice that my dad could meet them.
We came back and had a healthy lunch, then the folks headed back to Sacramento. Steven and I hung the big wreath on the iron gate to the carport (much easier than climbing the ladder to hang it at the peak of the roofline) and then took a hike around the "loop" - about 1.5 miles up the hillside where the views are even more spectacular of the lake and the mountains. A great end to the day.
It's time to go back to work tomorrow, but just 4 weeks until the winter break. I have a lot to focus on, and it's time to make some things happen! I'm ready to go!
I hope you all have a great week ahead. I'm grateful for this "Streakversary" - but the winning streak is just beginning. I intend to carry this program with me forever. Will you join me?
