I am a 'Gold-digger'

Gold-digger (noun): a person who mines and extracts gold. Sparkpeople.com has turned me a grandmother into a ‘gold-digger’. I am extracting everything I can get from Sparkpeople to my advantage to lose weight and to live a healthier lifestyle. There is the pre-planned menu’s that you can pay for if you get your own nutritionists.

Gold-digger (noun): a person who mines and extracts gold. Sparkpeople.com has turned me a grandmother into a ‘gold-digger’. I am extracting everything I can get from Sparkpeople to my advantage to lose weight and to live a healthier lifestyle. There is the pre-planned menu’s that you can pay for if you get your own nutritionists. There are exercise videos, but of course if you choose you can buy your own or hiring your own personal fitness trainer and pay $$$$$ per session. You can go to a local meeting with others that are losing weight and pay $$$$$ or you can join a weight loss team and get support anytime day or night, not just when you go to a weekly meeting. There is tons of information on health issues that are there for us Gold-diggers like me. This is 2010 and it has finally dawned on me that I do have a gold-mine with Sparkpeople and I ain’t giving it up!!! In the words of Stacy Ann Ferguson……”I ve overcome fear. I’ve pushed through it. I dusted myself off and gave it another go.”

Every day is a new beginning: A day to say 'yes' instead of 'no'. A day to choose a smile, to choose light, to choose love. Every day is a new beginning, a new gift we get to do what we want with. What will you do with your day?

“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Out silver ITC this week is to reach and support each other. I am sharing this favorite quote of mine, I hope it inspires you:

“An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.” Goi Nasu

I wish you only the best,
Belinda
