Happily married. Love being at home and doing homey things. Have my own cleaning business. Love what I do. My cats are my children.
My husband is my best friend.
I actually have email in my spark mail account from 2009. So I have been around here for awhile. Lately though I have really started to be active on this website. I am actually starting to be able to find things and use them to my advantage.
About three months ago I started to go through the Spark Coaching program. I cannot say enough about how it has gotten me back on track.
Between 2015 and 2016 I lost over 90 pounds. I gained a few pounds back and didn't do anything about it right away. Now I am reactivating and losing those few pounds. What I find interesting is that I am really struggling with the last three pounds or so. Even more interesting is that my measurements with the exception of a couple of areas are almost identical.
I can only attribute that to the fact that I have started exercising every day! Before I was only doing yoga and sometimes Walk Away the pounds. Recently I bought Nicole from Spark Fit, Firm and Fired Up and 28 day Bootcamp. I did seven days of Fit Firm Fired ten minutes a day. To my surprise just like Chris Downie said, it led to more minutes each day. Exercise to me has always been like the plague. Not anymore. It is like breathing now!

    "Just because you are not doing what other people are doing, does not mean you are failing or falling behind. You're charting your own course and staying true to yourself, even though it would be easier to join the crowd. You are creating a life you can fall in love with rather than falling in line. You're finding the courage to do what's right for you, even though it's uncertain and scary and hard. Give yourself some credit, because these are reasons to be proud." - Lori Deschene

    It’s Motivational Monday . . .

    • When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind, and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power. – Phyllis Bottome

    • Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. - Bruce Lee

    • All the mistakes I ever made were when I wanted to say 'No' and said 'Yes'.
    - Moss Hart

    • Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes and move on. - Les Brown

    Don’t agonize over your mistakes. It really doesn’t help you in any way, and may actually keep you from moving forward, and being more proactive in the future. It’s been shown in studies that helping people to control their eating in a less rigid. more compassionate, and understanding matter when they make a diet mistake might actually help to promote healthier eating in the future.

    It was observed that those who treated themselves with compassion when they overate, or ate a “restricted” food, might be more successful at regulating their eating because they are less motivated to eat in order to cope with negative self–feelings, and this might be particularly true of restrictive eaters. Simply put, these people might be able to remain aware of their goals for healthy eating because they have a “clear head” that is not cluttered with negative, critical unpleasant thoughts and feelings.

    So it seems that self-compassion in the wake of our mistakes may help us to better monitor and control our eating. Those who are very restrictive in their dieting and learn to treat themselves compassionately when they break their diets, and avoid the self–criticism and the accompanying guilt, appear to be able to recognize the fact that everyone eats unhealthily once in a while. By doing this, they might control their eating more effectively than those who focus on the negative implications and guilty feelings of their eating mistakes and failures.
