So I've been reviewing a lot of things lately about my health and fitness, about life in general and how different I was when I lost the weight five years ago. And then I came across this article which was rotating in the starting page of Spark ... Read more

A Slow Weekend.

So it's nice outside today. It was slowly edging toward the 40s and I think today is the first day we've had in the 40s this Winter. I'm beyond excited about that but I'm also kind of unwilling to come out of hiding when it comes to clothes, to ... Read more

Ready For 2015.

am i? i think i am. i restarted my entire spark program. i maintained my teams and my personal info like the blogs and spark page but the rest of it has been completely reset. and it actually feels pretty good. i've been tracking erratically, shifting around and not keeping up that it was just...it all kind of snuck up on me and i'm just kind of tired of being where i am right now. i've been looking forward to 2015 for the last two weeks because i have so many resolutions and goals and daily things that i want to implement that it was starting to aggravate me that the day wasn't getting here fast enough. and now that it's here i'm looking forward to getting up tomorrow and sparking and actually starting to track everything again. so this will be my last blog of 2014 but i'm hoping to have many blogs in 2015, the way i did when i first started this journey in 2009. i enjoy being able to go back to those older blogs and read where i was at that point and the excitement in my tone when i read the words again. i was a bit crazy. oh hell, i still am. i'm just a whole other level of crazy now, maybe even a more responsible level of crazy. since the new position, i've been so work-oriented (since i'm a supervisor now) that i have barely been taking annual leave days and my diet has suffered from having to order out since it's hard to bring food to meetings and stuff. but now that i've settled into the position it's getting easier and i've been getting antsy to really push myself again. it's still going to be hard some days because i'll have very early mornings and i can't get up earlier than i already do but my goal is to stay on track as much as i can. so here are my resolutions for the new year: resolutions: - reading challenge 2015 media1.popsugar-assets.com/files/2014/12/01/042/n/3019466/ccc0001cc6a0b0ae_love_sex-2015readingchallenge.png - go to a concert (i've been to one concert every year for the last two years. 2013 was bon jovi in new jersey and 2014 was anberlin's final tour at the gramercy in manhattan since they're disbanding. if i'd known there for tomorrow was disbanding soon enough i would have made the trip to florida to see them, i really would have.) - keep a good things jar 2015 (i just read all of 2014s and it seems the year was pretty good, lol) media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/48/9b/e8/489be8ae45e35eaac0ce048a298e07e2.jpg - make four videos this year, one every three months (creative outlet needed. my guy is going to repair my comp so it can withstand the strain of power director) - hit goal weight again before the end of 2015 (i'm actually aiming for may but it never works out that way, i've noticed) - spark and track everything as best as i can daily - keep drinking to weekends and special occasions (stress drives me to drink just to calm down sometimes so for the first half of 2014 i was doing fine even with all the stress and issues at my last branch so now i need to be able to strengthen myself to the stresses of this supervisory position) - pay off one credit card (just one. just one, for god's sake) - transcribe another story to word document form (i managed to do one in 2014 so i'm aiming for one this year and then probably the last one in 2016. i make it seem like they're so long, lol!) the next two are weight loss rewards: - get a new short haircut - get a new tattoo i think that's all. pretty ambitious, i think. but. that's how i roll. hahahahaha just kidding, i crawl. mostly. anyways, that's it for 2014's last blog, i think. happy new year, sparkers and best wishes in the new year to come!Am I? I think I am. I restarted my entire Spark program. I maintained my teams and my personal info like the blogs and spark page but the rest of it has been completely reset. And it actually feels pretty good. I've been tracking erraticall... Read more
