I've been with SparkPeople for a while, but not active for almost 2 years.

Edited 1/8/12

It's time to push past my comfort zone, expand my boundaries, and break routines. I taken some big steps forward: I have been a non-smoker since late August and I made a job change in October, and I have stumbled backwards a few: eating more to help with my cigarette cravings and letting my new work schedule interfere with my exercise routines. I have a weight gain to deal with, but I am not giving up or giving in. It's a new year, so time to WORK on a new me.

My Goals:
To have the energy to LIVE, not just exist.

To go through an entire day with out saying or thinking the word "ouch".

My Program:
It all adds up; never discount your efforts, because small efforts build big things. One word doesn't make a novel, but one word does begin a novel, and from that small beginning everything else follows. Even if it's just "The", write something on that blank page. --Laurell K. Hamilton

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit." ~Aristotle

Basically, I will do SOMETHING other than just plan, and I am Working on CONSISTENCY.

TRACK TRACK TRACK. Be honest, and "if you bite it, then write it."

Personal Information:
Hi, I'm Marni. I have a extensive family history of health issues that I really want to avoid, if at all possible. My Pop is on Medical Disability, and I help with managing his care. I need to take better care of myself, so I can give 100% when he needs me.

Other Information:
I work in a very large hospital, and every day I am confronted with the consequences of not taking care of yourself. The morbidly obese, diabetics, dialysis patients, patients with cardiac conditions, My unit sees them all. What has really shook me up is that many are the same age as me, or no more than 10 years older. I don't want to be them.

    That is awesome! I used to eat pretzels a lot but they don't have nutrients. Olives, pickles, salted radish and cucumber are my go to snacks. Also tuna salad and crackers or sandwich. Since lots of protein is removed during treatment. Happy New Years

    Thanks for your comment on my community feed post! I agree that being positive is definitely at least half the battle - keeps us going through the set backs. And, yes, cancer-free now. Thanks and Cheers!

    emoticon Away in a Manger emoticon

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
    The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

    The stars in the sky looked down where he lay,
    The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

    The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
    But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.

    I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh.

    Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.

    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
    And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

    emoticon I wish you a very Merry Christmas my friend emoticon
