Getting Back On Track!

I have been off track for over a year and I am happy to say, I am back.

Towards the end of 2011, I had to stop running and before I knew it, the weight started piling on. I was really embarrassed and didn't want to post a weight gain every month, so I just dropped out. Well, we were moving and I had left my whole lifestyle behind, my life was really disrupted for a while, so I ate. All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

Now that things are "normal" again, I really wanted to get back in shape. When I left SP, I weighed more than my tracker was showing because I just stopped moving it. Although the tracker is 1.8 pounds higher now than I was showing before I left, I am actually almost ten pounds down and feeling good about myself. This is a big THANKS to my SP friends that had faith in me and encouraged me to come back. Well, I am back and right on track!


I saw this on THECRUSADER's page and copied it for my page too!

Other Information:
Weight loss is a journey – tackle it in stages.
Some may get there very quick, whilst others may take ages.
Weight loss is a journey, some take the stopping train,
And they get off at the station, and then get back on again.
While other lucky people seem to travel by express,
With no apparent effort, each week they weigh in less.
For some of us the journey, too often seems uphill.
We never seem to get that far, struggle though we will.
Weight loss is a journey – anyone can go
But as you travel on your way there’s something you should know.
Losing weight’s a journey that is different for everyone,
Some are happy to stroll along while others need to run.
If you want to complete this journey, then forget about the rest.
Each of you must travel the way that suits you best.
As long as you believe it, you WILL get there some day.

Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for your nice comments on my "Favorite Things" blog. I think I need to be a little less verbose in my blogs. I actually cut my blogs in half before I post them.

I am also "old school" when it comes to the phone. My desire for some solitude frustrates my wife and kids. I get told all the time, "I texted you, why didn't you respond?" They don't like my answers, "Well, you see I was driving..."

Thanks, Bruce

What is a Workout?
By George Allen, former Washington Redskins Coach

A workout is 25 percent perspiration and 75 percent determination. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts self-discipline. Doing it is easy once you get started.

A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind, and toughens the spirit. When you work out regularly, your problems diminish and your confidence grows.

A workout is a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is the badge of a winner - the mark of an organized, goal-oriented person who has taken charge of his, or her, destiny.

A workout is a wise use of time and an investment in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary.

A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to opportunity and success. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers that can release it.

A workout is a form of rebirth. When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF.
