Such profound thoughts....
Tuesday, December 31, 2013
Well, I'm looking for them! It's the last day of 2013 so I should have something, right?! Well, jokes on me - nothing is coming to mind.
But I will say this. My life has changed since September 1st when I made a commitment to try the Atkins lifestyle. I'm planning on continuing that transformation thru this upcoming year. I'm not really a goal person - but I do plan to be in a MUCH better spot this time next year! If I can lose 80 to 100 pounds this year, I'll be at goal weight. That is an amazing though - not profound, but amazing!!! I'm not a writer, but I'm determined to be a doer.
I walked and ran for 40 minutes today - 4 minute intervals of each & I didn't feel like I was dying! What?! Amazing, I know.... 40 pounds ago I wouldn't have been able to do that. I'm exercising 6 days a week - thanks to Anna for getting me into the groove and sticking to it. Megan is another one who's been pushing me to continue the workouts. I've also got Colette, Monica, Ken, Kathy, April, Chris, Olivia, Katie, Deb, Lisa, Michele, Belinda & Darla who lift my spirits here on Spark and send me encouragement & compliments so often that I feel like I've known them forever...rather than just a few short months.
Life is fabulous. I'm so happy for all that I'm going thru. This is a journey & transformation at the same time. And had I not gotten to this point, I probably wouldn't be here now. Which means that I wouldn't have made all these awesome friends. All these struggles we face daily, weekly, monthly... make us stronger & with the right attitude, make us better people. So, thank you my Spark friends! Happy new year to each and every one of you. Wish I could give you all a huge hug in person, but I'll settle for sending the hugs thru the internet :) Let's all enjoy 2014 and get stronger!
