Miles of smiles!

This part of my journey of life started in Jan. 2012. Joined a class at the Y and have been inspired since. I have three beautiful children who enjoy it with me. I'm half way to my goal weight, but it's not just the numbers I'm improving. It's the whole package! Life is a journey of constant changes. I'm going to keep on smilin through this journey...

This part of my journey of life started in Jan. 2012. Joined a class at the Y and have been inspired since. I have three beautiful children who enjoy it with me. I'm half way to my goal weight, but it's not just the numbers I'm improving. It's the whole package! Life is a journey of constant changes. I'm going to keep on smilin through this journey...

This week marked a year since I started by healthy lifestyle change. I have been sparking for eight months. I have learned and gained so much from this part of my journey.
I have lost 75 lbs and gained so much! I have gained confidence, strength physically and emotionally, energy, inspiration, friends, and the list goes on and on.

It has been 2 and a half years since I started on this journey. Wow, that has gone quickly! I am proud of all that I have learned and accomplished! I do need to remind myself of that... I lost 85lbs, but have gained 5 to 10lbs. No big deal, but I know how quickly it could go backwards. I am aware and learning so I will keep fighting for this new lifestyle. I love all that I have acquired on this journey. The ups and the downs teach me all the time. I will keep living and pushing each moment with a smile! Thank You Lord!

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~

This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

10. Help others when you can.

Keep going!

You are SPARKTACULAR!

“Regardless of what came before or of what has yet to come, what matters most right now is how I choose to respond to the challenge before me. Will I lie down or will I fight? The choice is mine and I choose to finish strong.” (Dan Green)

You have it in you

When you feel like quitting, that’s an opportunity to keep going. When you feel like giving up, you have it in you to step forward with renewed energy and to give more.

Giving up doesn’t accomplish anything, and it doesn’t make you feel any better. It just leaves you with disappointment and regret.

There’s a way to keep going, and you know it. There’s a way to keep going, and just imagine how great you will feel for choosing persistence.

If you’re weary, stop for a short while to rest, but don’t give up. Remind yourself of all the good reasons why you’ve chosen to move forward, and then get yourself going again.

If you wish to be free of the effort, then do what it takes to finish the effort. Make all your work count for something by bringing it to a successful conclusion.

The next step is right in front of you, and you have it in you to take that step. Keep going, fulfill your best possibilities, and you’ll always be thankful for your choice to do so.
