I was driving home last night and was feeling pretty good about myself and life, for the first time in a long time...and I realized it's because of one
man, who had a dream and has made such a difference not only in my my life, but 1,000s of others on this site..
For the first time in years, I finally feel that my
has mended and realize that sometimes, no matter how freakin' painful life is sometimes you have to really go through a friggin' emotional tornado, to come out on the other side, and it's making me the woman I am today, whichs a strong, confident, person who now realizes more of my strenghts than weaknesses..
My recovery truly started wih Sparkpeople. I had let myself go in so many different ways, I had become shell. I had given up on people, life, you name it. The only thing that kept me going was my son...
Then along came Sparkpeople....this site has moved me in so many ways.., and I don't mean just by
It's my one year
He has taught us to move, even if it's for 10 minutes., just get myself going and the rest will follow. He has taught us to have a dream, not matter how small, and the rest will follow. He has taught us to view information, even if it's for 10 minutes, and the rest will follow. He has taught me to re-discover my love for biking, walking, just plain friggin' moving!! and you know what? I'm on a roll now baby, i can't move enough..especially this summer--there is no stopping me now..I want to experience ZUMBA.., cardiokickboxing, SPINNING!! and it all started from Sparkguy, who had a dream, sitting in this cubicle many years ago...
As I look back on this past year, these are some things that have changed:
-Rediscovered my love for biking..I just get on the trails and GO!! and just have fun with it..it's not a competition or a race, just MOVE, MOVE MOVE!!
Rediscovered my passion for walking, during lunch, at the trails, just get out and MOVE, MOVE MOVE!!
Grew my own veggies last year and learned how to make a killer salsa..more to follow this year
Rediscovered my love for the some and gardening again
The importance of progress pix and how 5 lbs does make a difference
The scale does NOT TELL ALL!!
Back to weighing and measuring food
Started a Sparkbudge yesterday
This past year has been focused on stopping the weight gain..now, this year is going to be focused on getting it off..joining challenges, getting my emotional health back...
I feel the need to go rack up the last of my 1,000 Fitness Minutes for the month, so
and have a wonderful week
