I am a single mom of 4 kids, 2 girls and 2 boys. my girls are 11 and 5 and my boys are 7 and 12 months! Never a dull boring moment in our household! I am completely bound and determined to stick to it this time.Ive found myself to quit cuz ive gotten frustrated cuz ive hit that dead spot but Im not going to let that stop me this time! i have always had a weight problem especially now with 4 kids later lol. after my 1st one i never seemed to of been able to get rid of it. ive tried dieting multiple times and i may of lost a few but it always came back....PLUS SOME! which is what nobody ever wants.i used sparkpeople once before about 5 years ago but after losing 35 lbs i was stuck for 3 weeks and lost motivation. well ive decided i was more determined now than ever to get to where i want to be and be more happy with myself and get my self esteem up and have more of a positive attitude with self image if not for me but my kids.(of course having feeling better about myself will show to my kids also) and the biggest smile ever is when my kids want to work out with me. and its soo funny because my 12 month old will stand in front of the tv and act like hes 'walking in place' (as i do with the leslie sanson dvd) ! and i think that just gets me everytime. :-) but i want to be in better health and be more active with and for my kids and not letting a bad week discourage me and let me give up!

    Are you still here? It's been a while since you've updated your status or since I've seen you around... Hopefully you're just lurking and quietly still chasing your own goals but in case you're not, please remember:

    People disappear for all sorts of reasons. Life gets in the way, we forget or change our views on what we deem is important, we get buried under stress, frustration, illness. We sometimes give up, throw in the towel, or just promise ourselves that once things get better/easier/calmer, we will hitch up our socks and come back fresh. We've all done it. We've all been there. And if perhaps, you just need a supportive hug, or a helping hand or a word of inspiration, please know that I am offering it to you with no judgment, no guilt. It seems like it's been a while since you've been here and I just wanted to let you know that you are missed.

    “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.” -Mary Anne Radmacher

    It's JUNE! Where has the time gone?

    Please forgive the blanket letter but there were too many people to thank and simply not enough time to write personal notes to everyone...

    Thank you so much for your support and friendship. I am happy to say that I am pretty much back up and running full steam and only have a couple more hurdles to jump to finally put this cancer battle behind me. Now I can look forward to concentrating on my original goals again and come the fall will (fingers crossed) be well on my way to being heathy and happy.

    Coincidentally, this Friday, June 8th, is Best Friends Day. So for all those in your life that you are thankful for, please take a moment to reach out, give a hug and share a smile. Where would our lives be without the amazing support and friendship from someone like you?

    As we are entering into the summer season (for those, like me, in the Northern Hemisphere), I would like to send this wish to you:

    May you enjoy an everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

    Happy summer :)

    "This Saturday, May 19, is the first annual Food Revolution Day, initiated by the Jamie Oliver Foundation."

    Are you not familiar with the food revolution?? Watch this:

    "The day will happen in kitchens, homes and communities around the world. In dining rooms, in restaurants and gardens, it will spark conversations about real food and inspire people to take steps towards a healthier lifestyle through cooking together. It's a chance for people who love food to come together to share information, talents and resources; to pass on their knowledge and highlight the world's food issues. Food Revolution Day is about connecting with your community through events at schools, restaurants, local businesses, dinner parties and farmers' markets, while promoting the mission for better food and education for everyone. To help celebrate, we've provided a selection of Jamie Oliver recipes from Cookstr to get you started. Find Food Revolution Day events near you" by copying and pasting this link:
