I've found that since I lost my excess weight, I don't mind the heat so much, and am enjoying summer outdoor activities! If you hear me complain, it's usually about the air-conditioning! And I'm the first one to suggest we eat lunch out on the patio instead of inside in the AC! Don't have easy access to a pool, or I'd be there with ya! Choose to be healthy in food choices and activities!

I used to hate the summers too, but now that I've found the inner athlete living in me I have found that I love it!

Happy Supernatural Sunday Sparkers!

I would like to share how my perspective of SUMMER has changed dramatically. I am part penguin, I think, because I LOVE the cold, crisp, chilly Fall and winter temperatures and I despise the heat and humidity of Summer. This response to temperature has (past tense) made me a hybernation girl in the summers. In fact, most years of my adult life I saw the pattern of weight gain in the Summer because I stayed inside in the air conditioning and I was more lethargic and sluggish during the summer season. BUT we have been living in a home with an in the ground pool. Now it took 3 seasons to figure it all out, but this summer our swimming pool ROCKS and I am swimming laps and treading water and playing pool games with my daughter and bobbing around on my raft while reading a good book. BUT I have learned that exercise is not ENOUGH to lose weight. Calorie control and better food choices are mandatory for weight loss and a healthy body. SO, now that I have Spark, and Jesus, and the boundaries I need with my calories and exercise through the Spark food and exercise trackers, I am LOSING weight in the SUMMER. And guess what?!!!! There's STILL TIME to LOSE MORE WEIGHT because it's only July 22nd! We have the rest of this month and ALL of August and even part of September around here is quite hot and still pool weather. I am just rejoicing that this Summer of 2012 is a Season of Becoming Slimmer and Fitter and Victorious in this area of my life that has been(past tense) such a struggle for me.

Please join me in making the most of our TIME this Summer to get slimmer and healthier and see a MAJOR breakthrough in this part of our lives. WE STILL HAVE TIME!! WOOOOO
