My Goals:
Today... I change my life for the better. 'I am healthy, fit, full of life & energy.'

"ZEST FOR LIFE" is my new mantra. I want to get off the couch & do more fun activities.

I want to lose 40 lbs by my B-day at the end of August.

UPDATE: 26 lbs gone, only 14 more to go! WOO-HOO… OVER 1/2 WAY THERE!!

My Program:
Currently trying to figure that out. But the plan so far is: 8+ water. 60 min 7x week via fitbit + HIIT. Track foods. Weigh 1x week. Do more FUN things outside!!

GOAL: Make fitness FUN.

Personal Information:
One dog, two cats and a terrific hubby. Enjoy paddle boarding, tennis, volleyball, yoga & snorkeling. Just lost my father in January.

Other Information:
Love Steve Martin - "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" Christian music, all things art-related, sports, animals & kindness. Dreaming about traveling the world, living aboard a sailboat & writing a book. Really would love to learn another language, Spanish or Italian, I think.

May you always have
enough happiness to keep you sweet:
enough trials to keep you strong:
enough success to keep you eager:
enough faith to give you courage:
and enough determination to
make each day a good day.

“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life’” ~ John 8:12, NASB.

John 8:12 is the passage God has given me as a life-goal for 2015. As I seek Him for a New Year’s BLESSing for you, it seems good to pray that you will have all the Light needed for the path ahead, dispelling all darkness, and giving you the light of day for each step ahead. Happy 2015!

I give thanks to God, the Father, for you as I pray for you today. May you know by experience God’s grace, spiritual favor and BLESSing today and every day, having heart peace from God the Eternal Father – that peaceful state of trust in Him to which He calls us; that soul harmony with Him that umpires life choices, heart desires, and questions of the mind. May He settle us with faith to trust Him. Have a BLESSed Thanksgiving, rested in Father. Loving you in Christ, Darlene.

Worry over the future breeds anxiety. Fretting over the past breeds depression. Both can stop our good movement forward and put us in front of the TV with a bad movie and too much of the stuff we don’t need to put into our bodies. That horrid cycle, of course, breeds regret and dread that brings us to more of the same. I believe that is called “insanity”.

Instead work to stay in the present taking the next step needed for living to the full the “now” that is before you, having learned better ways from past experience and pushing forward with hope that right action now will produce a better tomorrow. This is living life with power that produces a good outcome and protects our journey from wasting away.

Plan for the future, yes; but let the first plan be to live your best you in the now you have to possess.
