Striving for a consistent healthy lifestyle!

We are now in Florida again after being in our RV for two months, visiting family and friends back in our home state of Pennsylvania. While there, I did a lot of driving back and forth to visit my parents and went out to lunch and dinners with friends. I lost my consistent fitness routine and 10,000 step streak, as living in the RV had a lot of limitations. I ended up gaining about 8 of the 20 pounds I lost this spring and summer.

We are now in Florida again after being in our RV for two months, visiting family and friends back in our home state of Pennsylvania. While there, I did a lot of driving back and forth to visit my parents and went out to lunch and dinners with friends. I lost my consistent fitness routine and 10,000 step streak, as living in the RV had a lot of limitations. I ended up gaining about 8 of the 20 pounds I lost this spring and summer. Now that we are in our home in Florida again, I am gradually getting back into a consistent routine with my exercise, doing daily morning walks of at least three miles, as well as working out at the gym. Have to rein in the eating though, as we often eat out here in this retirement community. I am determined to get back on track to a healthy lifestyle, eating with moderation and mindfully! Again, the wealth of information on SparkPeople and the community support from the teams and friends I have made here give me the motivation to do well and reach my goals!

emoticon emoticon emoticon CHRISTMAS SAYINGS emoticon emoticon emoticon
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.”
~ Harlan Miller

One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.”

There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.--Erma Bombeck

Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.”

He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a tree.”

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?--Bob Hope

Of course, this is the season to be jolly, but it is also a good time to be thinking about those who aren't.--Helen Valentine

Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won't make it "white".--Bing Crosby
