Fitness Minutes: 103,262

My Goals:
-At least 5 servings of veggies per day
-No wheat
-At least 60 grams of a variety of plant based proteins per day

My Program:
I love endorphins, so I love to work out. I work out at the Y 3-4 days a week, some sort of strength training at home the other days.

I drink at least 16 glasses of water per day without trying. I think I was a fish in a past life.

Tracking my foods is my biggest challenge, the key to my everlasting success, the hardest part to maintain, the easiest to give up, the carrot at the end of the stick. As long as I make myself keep tracking, I know I'll eventually get down to a healthy weight, because it automagically keeps me accountable!

Personal Information:
I work as a community organizer for women's shelter programs.
I've had chronic depression & PTSD for as long as I can remember. Recently, my psych dr prescribed "Mandatory Fun, Joy, Passion and not getting into any fuddy duddy routines." Best advice I've ever gotten!

Other Information:
Don't put me in any boxes, especially with labels on them.

Unless we can hear each other singing and crying, unless we can comfort each
other's failures and cheer each other's victories, we are missing out on the best
that life has to offer. The only real action takes place on the bridge between people.

1. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
2. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
3. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
4. You mean the world to someone.
5. If not for you, someone may not be living.
6. You are special and unique.
7. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want,
you probably won't get it, but if you trust God to do what's best,
and wait on His time, sooner or later, you will get it or something better.
8. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from it.
9. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look:
you most likely turned your back on the world.
10. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
11. Always remember the compliments you received.. Forget about the rude remarks.
12 . Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better
when they know and you'll both be happy .
13. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

They Did Their Share

On Veteran's Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.

Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it's been many years;

In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.

Some came back; some didn't.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.

No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.

Let every veteran be honored;
Don't let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can't repay.

We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let's say "thank you" to every wearer.

By Joanna Fuchs

Take a moment this weekend on Monday at 3 PM and say a silent prayer for all of our "heroes". Freedom isn't free and only by their great sacrifice are we able to enjoy the many freedoms each and every day.

Blessings to you

Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful
individuals above the crowd... a little bit more.
They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more."

"Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can." - Author Unknown

I think this is a great attitude for all of us. Even when we don't want to do something, we can talk ourselves into walking a little father, doing a few more crunches, taking one less bite, it is all up to us.

Here is to having a great Wednesday my friend.
