February is right around the corner!

Sunday, January 24, 2010

My birthday is coming up. February 9th. If you go way back in my SparkPeople History (I've had 3 birthdays while here) you will see that every year February sucks. My Birthday is often "Laura's Birthday Week" which inevitably turns in to "Laura's Birthday Month" because I have the best pals in the world that make sure the world revolves around me at this time of year. I love it, but this year I am putting my foot down. I will have my birthday celebration on Saturday 2/6. I will go a little crazy. I will not undo all of this work!
Just found a photo from last summer that is definitely a 'before' picture.
I refuse to look like this person again, I will rock a tank top this summer and I will look decent doing it!
So all of my SparkFriends, please help keep me in check this February. We will be going on walks every Saturday. I will be tracking my food and alcohol, I will strive to be in the top 5 in Modesto fitness minutes! I know I can do this!

The handsome man in my lap is my nephew Rylan, he lives in Aptos with my brother and his wife and my nephew Christian. I love them so much... I spend a lot of time in the Santa Cruz area :)

    Laura, you will do it! You're right, you've worked so hard to turn back now! Keep looking ahead, you'll be there before you know it. You're not even the same person that you were last year. Look at how much you've learned and grown. Your birthday this year is going to be amazing because the greatest gift you could ever get is already yours; you've got your life back. I didn't know you back then, but can see in your eyes the difference. You glow! Congratulations on all you're accomplishing!!

    Thanks! I was just looking back through all of my cardio, and I really started working hard 7/5... meaning I haven't missed a week since 7/5. Sure some weeks are stronger than others, but it makes me think that this photo may have been the picture that started it all. I probably just blocked it out of my mind hahaha
