Happy Rock Woman

Fall 5% CHALLENGE.

I just turned 55 on September 4. I wonder what the next five years will bring...?

When I am 60 I want to be happier, healthier, more centered and calm and confident.

One day at a time...spark by spark by spark.

I know that these eight-week challenges help me to live each day to my best, so tomorrow can be better than yesterday.

I just read your blog on "Failure"...Please don't think of it as failure. The scales are just a number. You are making lots of progress in being healthy and looking after yourself. I also have to say that you have motivated me....and that is no easy feat. So as you struggle and persever just remember that progress is not always measured by a number...sometimes it is measured by healthy choices, an lots of non scale victories.
