Triumph over adversity

Sunday, September 26, 2010

In July I became unemployed and it hit me really hard. I did lose weight but for the wrong reason. Because I was so worried about money I hardly ate and was so stressed out about everything. I finally pulled myself together almost a month ago. I decided I wasn’t going to let life just happen to me. I took charge of my life and made things happened. I even inspired my husband to join Sparks and actually participate. I have been exercising and eating right. I don’t beat myself up if I have an off day. If I have a craving for junk for and I give in it is not the end of the world. The next day I just work extra hard and I don’t let that one time become a habit. The other day I noticed my stomach looked a little flatter. I notice some definition starting to peak out. It made me so happy to know that this time what I was doing was really working. There is also the fact that I am out of my rut and I am happy again. I don’t think I am going to look back anymore. I am ready for what comes at me.

P.S. I did get a new job. I can’t wait to start.
