Well.....I made it this time around !!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

As many of my spark friends know, summer is not a good time for me. Year after year I fall off the wagon I am busy and cant find the time to spend on spark (which I need to keep me on track) and I gain everything back that I had managed to lose.

Well this year I changed that, with the help of my spark friends, the sparklers team and our leader newtink (they kept me accountable and I would not have been able to do this without them) emoticon
But with their help I managed to maintain what I had lost, I bounced back and forth with 2 pounds but I still maintained what I had lost and that is a huge success for me !! emoticon

Now that summer is coming to an end and the kids went back to school today, it is time to get back on a normal routine and get moving forward again. Today I will find the time to plan my meals and my exercise program, I may start working on my 5k time again. I think I might actually miss my treadmill haha

For now my future plan will be to maintain through the summers and maybe someday I will be able to actually lose in the summer, but for now I am very happy to have maintained and not be starting back at square one all over again. emoticon

Hope everyone has had a wonderful Summer and I look forward to catching up with all of you very soon. emoticon

    You've made a solid, GOOD change!
    Getting through summer and being able to step up to the challenge of your problem time of year is BIG, C!!!!

    With the kids back in school (ie the end of summer!), you are entering your 'easier' months from a great starting point.

    It's all positive;you are on a roll!!!

    Great job! It is often very hard to maintain during changes in your normal routine. I have the same trouble!
