"HEALTH IS THE GREATEST POSSESION, CONTENTMENT THE GREATEST TREASURE, CONFIDENCE IS THE GREATEST FRIEND, AND SELF AWARENESS THE GREATEST JOY." Lao Tzu ~~ Find your greatest possession, treasure, joy and friend TODAY and EVERYDAY !!

I am starting off the new year with my New Years Intentions to get fit and healthier ~~ I am 50+ years young, and my family genetics are NOT good ones so i have decided it is time to try and offset as much of that as i can. I quit smoking in 2008, and now it is time to take off the weight (again) i gained after quitting, and the weight i have put on from bi-polar meds ~~ they make it WAYYYYYYYY easier to put on weight and much harder to take it off and keep it off! But i am determined to make a new start! And that means eating healthier to feel better, and getting physically fit to feel the best!! Today is a new day, everyday is a fresh start, and we must look forward and make EVERY day count and do EVERYTHING we can to make it the BEST day we can! No excuses! If i can quit smoking, then i can do this! John Q Adams said it well, "Courage and perseverance have magical talisman before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish intothin air!" I am STRONG!! I am CAPABLE!! I am DETERMINED!! I CAN DO EVERYTHING!! I WILL NOT GIVE UP AND I WILL NEVER GIVE IN!! It is all in our attitudes and perspectives. To change everything, change your mind. So i am changing my mindset to one of life! And i am going to live my life the best i can, in the healthiest and most fit way i can, and then i can play and run and jump and dance and laugh with abandon, because i am fit both physically and mentally! Life is what you make it! Make It The VERY BEST you can!! and that is all you can do!! My new motto is: Get Fit and Go Out There and LIVE!!

JES' FRIDAY FOCUS

If the WHOLE world was blind..
How many people would YOU truly impress?
- - UNKNOWN - -


Always remember that it's what's on the inside that matters the MOST!! You can be the most attractive or fittest person in the entire room but good looks alone can never make up for an ugly soul or a cold hear!! Eventually we all get old, we all grow wrinkly & we all get gray - - Remember to nourish more than just your body on this journey to better health!! A good heart, a beautiful mind & a caring soul will NEVER go out of style!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes
