To work on my program in some way every day. To create/find new ways to keep and stay motivated. To stay active on Spark at least once a week. To constantly challenge myself by keeping my goals for my program current and finding challenges within my groups and Spark.
For 2014: I have learned over the years being "hardcore" doesn't always work. Here is what I have decided:
Exercise: Cardio at least 3 times a week, yoga at least once, strength 1-2 x's a wk.
Nutrition: I will continue to be a vegetarian but will strive towards veganism. This will be a slow process but everything in moderation is key!
Self: I think it's important to not forget about ourselves in this process. I start the year off with the goal of meditation for 5 min. At least 3x's a wk.
I love my family, walking, hiking, traveling, animals, exploring, volunteering, my job, & being optimistic.
I believe we need to take a few moments each day to just breathe and live in the moment to truly appreciate life itself.

Just going through my Spark Friends list and see you have not been around for quite a while. Your last blog post clearly was showing you were struggling with things. Please, don't give up on yourself. This isn't easy but with the tools here and support we CAN do this. I hate to see anyone walk away from here when I know it can help you reach your goals. Get healthy, get strong....come back please?

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
Hope your week is going great, Spark friend! Keep taking those steps towards your goals. Never give up! As long as you keep going, you will succeed. You are always worth your best effort!

Thank you so much for your kind words, for reading my blog posts and for adding me as one of your Spark Friends! I have returned the gesture! Positive mindset returns positive results. While life is never all sunshine and rainbows we never forget what those look and feel like when we're in a "storm". So, hang on to those images and keep putting one foot in front of the other. We'll get where we're going.....but sometimes the lessons learned along the way are not only necessary but they help us to realize how very important "failure" can be at times. When we fail we're forced to learn something new, something that will get us closer to our goals and keep us there! Have a wonderful weekend, do something a little "special" just for you, plan for your week ahead and keep Sparkin'!

Success is a Choice
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."
Stopping by to wish you a great week, Sparkfriend! Keep doing your best to reach your goals...its up to you, and you know you're worth the effort, right?

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!
