Think Healthy!

I am in my fifth year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my fourth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2015. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I celebrated my fourth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2015. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 2 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

Even though I have conquered all of the above, I am faced with an even bigger "challenge". I lost my 26 year old son in November to Anorexia Nervosa. I am in the first year of my grieving process and it is very difficult. I need to stay healthy, but, it is not the first thing on my mind. And, since he passed away from counting calories, weighing himself on the scale 3 times per day, and eating halves of everything - it has been a real mental challenge for me.

My favorite quotes...

�All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything!��Gary W. Goldstein

Goals are dreams with deadlines. ---Diana Scharf Hunt

Take care of your body. It�s the only place you have to live. - Jim Rohn

What you are doing is not nearly as important as how you feel about what you are doing. - Unknown

There'll be two dates on your tombstone. And all your friends will read 'em. But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em. - Kevin Welch

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. �Walt Disney

Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice and do so against all the risks confronting you.�Guru Singh

It's easy to lose focus on your goal when you experience bad emotions and feel like it makes no sense to go on longer. before you make the final decision, ask your self a few questions... like

1. Would you be happy if you gave up and your life remained the same?
Sometimes all it takes to keep going is to remind yourself of the end goal.

2. What's the worst that can happen if you keep going and don't achieve your goal?
Arnold Schwarzenegger once said: "Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."

Even if you do not achieve your goal, the person you had become when striving to reach it was probably more than worth it.

3. How would it feel to tell other people why you gave up?
Would you be happy telling your friend you gave up because you prefer watching TV to becoming a healthier person?

4. What would you tell your cloest friend if you traded places with her?
Would you tell her to throw in the towel or motivate her to keep pushing...try something different to reach her goals...

Keep pushing and
Never give up!

Thanks for your Charlie well-wishes!! (I think if I had it to do over again, I would have put him on Fresh Factors from a very early age as a preventive . . . )

Ok... team...let's regroup.
Lets take a moment to step back take a deep breath and focus.

To lead we must develop three key abilities:

1. the ability to THINK emoticon
let's remember our GOAL....think about it, focus on it!

2. the ability to SEE emoticon
let's use our inner skill of observation, which will lead us to insight and foresight. Every time you enter a room to take notice, this will help you be more aware.

3. the ability to ACT emoticon
Lets use our plan, our focus to see become aware of our objectives and act in a manner that will get us to the finish line.
