Back to my mean old self

Woke up feeling like myself again - no more snotty nose. Guess I will go to work today and do some billable hours - have just hung out here and been a sloth for the last two days. Between the cold, Valentine's Day and missing you know who, it has been a "lost" couple of days. Lots of sleep and vitamin C though.

I found this great site called spark people, it is fantastic! It's a healthy life style site that helps you to set goals, track your nutrition and exercise and stay motivated. All kinds of information, resources and tools - having fun with it. The thing I like the most, it promotes reality - it's not "lose 20 pounds in 4 hours!" It is about making permanent changes that stick. It's the old baby steps routine. It is about intentionality - ah, the synchronicity of things. Oh yeah, the best part is - it's free!

One of my greatest challenges is exercise. When I do it, I feel terrific - sparkpeople is helping me to incorporate exercise regularly and meet my goals. That always gives me a Kick! So I have lost a few of the 10 pounds that I gained last year during the crazy grief journey but more importantly, I am developing and reinforcing healthy habits.
