Raspberry's Story

The raspberry is my favorite fruit, hence my username :)

This is not my first time working on bettering the ol' body, but this is the most serious.......you see, as someone looking for work, when one cannot fit well into ..... sigh ....... interview-friendly attire, well......this was my OMG moment! (Why, oh WHY are SUITS so important - gad, I HATE them!)

I have a lot on my plate right now, so I may not have a significant social presence here for now......so, I'll ...

My Goals:
A better body and overall health - and a neater appearance in suits would be a good thing, too (as much as I HATE suits) :)

My Program:
I restarted my journey using parts of Spark in conjunction with a recently completed workplace health challenge program - this seems to have done the trick so far, sooooooo - I'm crossing the ol' fingers for the future!

Other Information:
Just trying to keep in mind that old saying - "one day at a time"!

Thanks for the blog love on my Got The Low Down Blues post. It amazes me how one can slip into self pity when a solution is so easy. dr. P is right - no point in fighting foryour ego while your life falls to pieces.

This is from the Cleveland Clinic and I thought it was so good I had to copy and share with my Spark Friends!

"What has your body done for you lately? A whole lot, actually! Focusing on function, not form, can encourage healthy habits.
Daily Dose
Loving your body and treating it well — with nutritious food, regular exercise and enough sleep — go hand in hand. Understanding your thoughts and feelings about your body can be useful, especially since that mirror, mirror on the wall can be the most fickle of them all. emoticon The media messages we take in, from Facebook to advertising, as well as other people’s opinions, can strongly sway how we view our bodies. Create a wellspring of inside-out body love by taking a trip outside the appearance paradigm. Instead of focusing on what your body looks like, focus on what it does for you. Perhaps it allows you to run around with your kids or grandkids, walk up stairs, or sit on your porch and wave to neighbors. Maybe it supports you while walking, playing tennis or climbing mountains. emoticon emoticon emoticon Consider your senses: Does your body let you see sunsets, listen to music and laughter, and smell fir trees? Your body, whatever its shape, size or condition, allows you to live your life. Make a list of all the things your body does in a day, and be especially sure to include those little things you used to take for granted. Then spend time appreciating it — you’ll be even more motivated to eat well, move regularly and keep up the other habits that contribute to a strong and healthy you!"
