Just like a Timex, I can take a licking and keep on ticking! And a licking is what I got in 2015. It was a year of many ups and downs, highs and lows. Even so, I am not defeated. I survived the chaos and have high expectations for 2016. With determination and my SparkPeople friends, I will succeed!!
WHAT WE CAN LEARN ABOUT PATIENCE FROM A DIAMOND --- Trying (but failing) to see your goals realized can be frustrating. Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it," and she was absolutely right. You've got to believe that you will succeed! Never admit defeat as long as time and effort remain. Our greatest asset is patience; our greatest weakness is throwing in the towel. Banish discouragement and feelings of impossibility by working hard, doing more, and not giving in! A diamond was only made beautiful after millions of years as a lump of coal.
F ruit - the consequence of some effort or action
O bjective - the goal intended to be attained
C ommitment - the trait of sincere and steadfast fixity of purpose
U nencumbered - not burdened with cares or responsibilities
S trength - the property of being physically or mentally strong
To achieve goal weight in a healthy, steady manner.
I WILL lose 10 lbs. by the end of 2013.
I WILL perform some type exercise a minimum of 4 times a week for at least 30 minutes.
Eat less; Exercise More, More and More!!!
SELF-APPOINTED WEEKLY CHALLENGE:
Take 30,000 steps per week.
I'm a small town Alabama girl and have lived in Alabama my whole life. I suppose I would say I love it here - there's nowhere else that comes to mind that I would rather live. Unless the beach but, fortunately, Alabama has that, as well.
I am the youngest of four children and the only girl to boot. My brothers all say I am spoiled but it's not true so please do not listen to them! I have worked for the same company for 30 years (yes, I was just a baby when I started!) and enjoy most aspects of what I do. It helps keep my brain alive, active and well.a
I dislike reading historical fiction; just can't get into it. However, surprisingly, some of my favorite movies have historical settings - The Count of Monte Cristo (LOVE it!), Ever After and First Knight (could be Richard Gere and Sean Connery are the primary draw here) . Also, lately Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley is one of my most fave movies. Anyway, I find I have a contradictary nature: I hate peaches, but love peach pie, I like apples but hate apple pie - see what I mean?
