Hi, I'm happy to meet you. Whatever your challenge please know I'm out here cheering you on. "It doesn't have to be easy; just possible."

I'm learning how to take good care of myself daily (not just for a day or two but setting myself up for the rest of my life). In the past I would let "the urgent" rule the day - not any more. I'm finding that in planning ahead I'm getting more accomplished in all areas of life and loving it!

Just wanted you to know I had you and your happiness on my mind. How are you doing? I can't complain. I have been on a two week streak of a military mindset (strict food tracking) and things are good here. Hard to call it sacrifice when we gain so much from making healthy choices. How are the hormones treating you?

Be well, silly and rarely your age,
Holly emoticon

I am evaluating my motives this month and getting them firmed up in my mind and heart. It is making a huge difference for me, knowing why I am doing what I am doing. How about you? Commitment to the journey is greatly helped by a constant flow of understanding the reasons behind the steps taken.

Sally,
Thanks for stopping by my page. Don't work too hard and do something fun in between when you can. Thanks for the compliment about seeing me here and about on Sparks. I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see you scoot by too.

We are givers, not takers. Hope you celebrate each day with a warm heart and peaceful thoughts. I am well and happy too.

I wish you well,
Holly
Smile on

Cool and pretty blue boxing gloves to go with your quote or attempt to beat this excess flesh and fat from my body. Very nice. Thanks for thinking of me.

I'm doing very well and hope you are too. Taking a bit of a break from the team walls. It gets too time consuming.

I hope you are having a nice 4th and perhaps grilling out some tasty tidbits.
We are here between rain drops.

Take fine care if you dare! emoticon
Holly
