The antidote for anxiety is action.

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies growth and our freedom."

I've seen the above attributed to a couple of different subjects, but the sentiment is just as good.

Performing feats of fitness (in fits) since 1998.

And

Zen swimming since 2011.

What a wonderful memory, even if you were itching. The poor girl that lost her top. Oh my!

I hope you have a good weekend.

My question for you is where did you grow up, city and state? I grew up in New Bern, NC.

Thanks for stopping by my page. The best compliment I've received lately is when I was stuck in a plateau for a few months and several people told me I looked like I was losing weight. This made me realize that the number on the scale wasn't as important as I was making it and if I kept doing what I was doing the scale would show it too. emoticon

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page and asking the question of "What's the first thought you had this morning?" I laughed when I read your answer to the question, because my first thought was "What time is it?" The clock by the bed is broken and I haven't replaced it yet.

So, here is my question for you: What made you smile today? For me, it was a call from my adult son. He was just calling to chat and didn't need a thing.

I’d like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April

I’d like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. I know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! Can’t do it! But I am here to tell u I did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 I got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs. to gain it all back, but I’m back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. If u stay within ur calories that are allotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. I lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure I never went over. I barely exercised ...I am handicapped and I can’t do exercises in the conventional way but I flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. I did very minimal stuff. The idea was to keep moving and I did that. So I know with discipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. So I invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!
