Since we have wanted to drop kick our scales most of the time, I am happy to say that I gave mine a pat today! I have wanted to drop into this new decade and out of the one I was in for a while, and I DID! It feels great! I was surprised, because I hadn't worked out yesterday, but I'll take it!!
As a reward for working at the computer all last weekend and as a major motivator to get stronger and smaller, I booked a return working trip on a schooner for next weekend -- I am so excited I am SHAKING! This is just what I needed -- a boost of excitement and a reason to live. It has been so hard for so long dealing with the family issues and I can't even remember feeling REALLY excited, until I felt the wind in my hair over the railing. I don't expect it will be as hot or wonderfully sunny, but I will thrive in the peaceful freedom. Working out now has a purpose: getting stronger to haul the ropes and jump up at the call "All hands on deck!" I am HAPPY about this and wish my husband could/wanted to do it too, but I am PROUD of doing it by myself FOR myself. It took over 40 years to figure this out, but I have found my own heaven and I'm still alive and capable!
Now I want to say: THANK YOU SP and SPFriends. I was drowning in June and when I reconnected in July, you all helped save me. Some of you have already had this rescue by SP and I had the experience too a year ago, but not so dramatically as this summer.
I am deeply grateful. And I spread the SPARK at work, believe me!
