A new year

Saturday, January 02, 2010

A new year has emerged, time to move forward from our achievments and disappointments of the year that ended, hopfully, learning from the mistakes we have mad. We all have good intentions, but being human we don't always follow through with what we wanted to achieve. I myself, hardly lost the weight that I wanted back in Feb. when I joined sparks, and I know I have two months before my first sparkaversity; but I'm making a fresh start now in the new year. I know I' not a big winner for not losing all I wanted. I also think I'm a winner for having learned a lot from sparks and getting a foundation down for consistently working out doing both cardio and strengthening exercises. I now joined both the body bootcamp that starts in a few days and the Quickfire Challenge team to boost myself along on this journey I have commited myself to doing. I expect to make better strides this year of 2010, and just might reach my goal, if not will continue this journey until I do.

    Hi Fran,
    Congradulations on your achievement with the Quickfire
    Challange, great work :)
    Liked what you wrote on your blog. I joined Body Boot Camp too.
    Will do my best....You are a winner for not giving up, and
    looking forward to success in the New Year.I think the majority of people look realisticl as to what they can and cannot do. You defined a realistic point of view that is
    very good.

    Thank you for sharing this, and God Bless You,
    hugs, paula :)

    Enjoyed your realistic viewpoint about why we are all here on Spark. I have made good progress on my weight loss but I too still have lots and lots to learn about being healthy. It sounds like you have made of goal of living a more healthy lifestyle which is different than losing weight. From my perspective I feel like a diet to lose weight is a short term goal with no real motivation to maintain that loss which is why we see ourselves yo yo up and down with weight. On the flip side of that a healthy lifestyle seems to be a long term goal with a side benefit of potential weight loss as you learn how to be healthier. I too have joined the new body bootcamp and will now check out the quick fire challenge. Good luck to both of us!
