Here we are again!

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Here I am! Back after nearly 2 years. Five years ago this month, I started my journey to get healthy and after a year dropped 30 lbs. I was running 5Ks, hiking, and feeling like I was a kid again. A knew injury later and I've struggled ever sense.

I had also started using another tracker app because I could get points for using it with my insurance. Little did I realize at the time how important the social aspect of this app helped me the first time around. This morning I thought about it and I signed back on to Sparkpeople and realized it was THIS very month (only 9 days difference) that I started this. (I don't like think I ever quit) It had to be destiny! The universe was pulling us back together.

So I'm back. Ironically, this week I'm teaching my freshman seminar students about SMART goals. (Again, the universe at play). So I'm being reflective and honest with myself. I'm working on my SMART goals. Something realistic and doable. I'm pushing the end of my 40s and I'm not necessarily wanting the hot bikini bod. I just want to not feel sluggish, achy, tired, and uncomfortable in my own skin. What that will require of my goals I am not sure yet so I will use the reboot (and yes, I'm starting with Phase 1 Day 1) to refine my focus and discover what I truly want to accomplish with this little spark of mine!
