Positive thoughts produce positive results.

My phrase for 2016 is "less talk and more action"

It's so easy to talk about doing things to help me get healthier, but when it comes right down to doing those things sometimes I have a problem putting them into action. So reading a team mates blog and recalling an Elvis song came up with my phrase and it seems to be working for me. It's surprising where we sometimes find inspiration, there's plenty on Spark to be found, we just have to find what speaks to us.

Wishing all a very successful 2016!

    Hello Shirl, thanks so much for the thoughtful SparkGoodie. That raking really does stir up the appetite and I can use that healthy snack. It sounds as though you have had a busy couple weeks. Sometimes life just happens like that. I know you have done your best to make healthy choices throughout all this activity. I'm sure you will get through all this and back on track when the time is right. Best wishes, Carol

    Thanks for reading my status update and commenting. I should have said that I have 7 acres at my home and 5 acres is in pasture. It grows like wildfire and I have it shredded (mowed) 2-3 times a year. Otherwise you can't find my house. It won't grow much now until the spring. I am enjoying the cooler fall weather too. Soon it will be winter and cold. Hope you and hubby are doing good.

    Thanks for your encouragement about my A1C numbers. I think the doctor was surprised - although also pleased, of course. I hope your husband's numbers continue to come down as well. Carol
