"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!!
