Lessons Learned in Six SP Years

On 1/27/2008, I joined the Spark family and now 3 years later, I am still here and as active as ever. So what have I learned? Here is the short list:

* Before snacking, H.A.L.T. - Am I Hurting? Angry? Lonely? Tired/Thirsty?
* By sharing what I have learned, I help myself, as well as, others
* It is not selfish to take time for me
* Exercise can be fun (did I really say that?!?!?!? LOL)
* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success

* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success
* Seeking help/support is not a weakness but a sign of maturity
* Sometimes the best thing I can do for myself is to say NO
* Each day needs to have some quiet time built in
* Do not dwell on mistakes, but learn from them and move on
* Setbacks are NOT a excuse to give up, but a reason to begin anew
* It is important to stay connected with my SPals and SP teams

emoticon for your concern MJ. I am just worried about my Mom. I left a message about taking her to NY 9/11 museum and she called to tell me. She was crying but seemed to be alright. She is waiting for instructions on the arrangements. Michael will take her for the funeral. She did say she is glad she got to see her last week. Aunt Hazel is now an angel is heaven, no doubt about it. She was a saint on earth just like my grandmother. Just like her. God rest her soul.

Hi how is the week going for you? Mine started off slow in exercise area. Picked up yesterday and hoping to get some good cardio in today again. Realizing I have been working on more than I thought and I need to work on one or two at a time instead of 4 or 5 . This may help me . Thank you for the goodie. Have a good weekend.
