Fitness Minutes: 19,382

My Goals:
So, I am going to shake things up a bit... Let's see if THIS will work. I need to become more accountable
1/22 227 BIG ICK
1 pound per week. This I am going to try and do. Eat better, Move more, it's a pound, I can DO a pound, but gee whiz, 52 pounds this year, sounds so much better than 1 pound this week...

My Program:
I need to remember what I am putting in my mouth .
I need to remember that if I can’t (won’t) walk because it’s cold out, I need to move in another way.
I need to remember that if I don’t burn calories, I will not continue to lose weight.
I need to remember that whole foods are better than processed foods.
I need to remember that this is a journey to the rest of my life.


Personal Information:
I joined Sparks a couple of years ago, and every once in a while I would post what I ate. This spring (2010) I decided I would make myself more accountable. So, here I am, 50. WOW how cool. I am 50. Now the flip side of that is I often don't think I have changed the world, I think I thought I would. I didn't invent anything that changed the world, People don't say, Oh, there she goes, you know, she founded... Updated..
1/14 I am still here, I am now 53, and I am still on the journey, and I WILL NOT GIVE UP.
.


Other Information:
To wake up every day grateful for the things I already have. To remember that life is a gift not given, and that if I don't do something about my weight, I may not have a long life, which I need, and so does my family.

Sometimes we all have those days where motivation is low, the scale lies, the work is too hard, the sun won't come out, you just don't want to bother, or it's easier just to eat the cake and not worry about it.

Yup, we all have them.

So when you do have them, here are some great, wise, words for you to ponder...

“The road to success is always under construction”
― Lily Tomlin

"Follow your passion, stay true to yourself, never follow someone else’s path unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path then by all means you should follow that."
― Ellen Degeneres

"People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily."
― Zig Ziglar

"I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party."
― Ron White

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go." – Dr. Seuss

“Stop wasting so much energy hating your body; it makes you weaker.
Everything good in your life begins from the moment you begin accepting, understanding, respecting, and loving your true self.”

Thank you for your kind words on my grieving blog. It's awfully nice that there's a place where I can just let it all gush out. I really appreciated the many other Mother Stories people shared too.

I promise to keep writing those memories down.

I know time will heal but evidently I am not all that good a patient. It's just good to know there is another side to this valley. Again, thank you for caring.

“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.”
