Ready to Transform
Friday, August 17, 2018
I feel like I really am motivated this time to completely change my lifestyle. I am experiencing many changes in my life and I am being transformed by them.
My mother passed away last September, which was and is a major heartache for me (as it is for most who've lost their mothers), and there were several other deaths in my family during that time frame. That really shook me up but, thankfully, I was also in the final months of a bachelor's degree that took me decades to finally finish. I graduated with a Public Health B.S. degree this May and just started a Master's degree program in Emergency & Disaster Management this month. Now that I have a degree in a field I am interested in, I am looking for a position to match my education. I am grateful that I am currently employed and that I have supportive management who are understanding of my desire to follow a different path.
I believe all these changes in my life have shaken me out of my complacency and are spurring me to set goals to conquer many things on my list. A healthy body is what I want and I am ready to make the changes needed to accomplish it. I lost 38 lbs in the past while Sparking but gained it all back and then some once I stopped. Now, I have been working out nearly every day for 3 weeks and faithfully tracking my foods and drinks every day. I usually stay within or very close to my caloric goals but there are some days that I go over. As of last week, I am now 51 years old and ready to reinvent myself. This time, I know I can do it!
Have a great weekend!
