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!
Physically to become healthier by eating right, exercising and learning how to keep the weight off.
Mentally to have the right frame of mind that this is not a diet, but a lifestyle change, something I can do for the rest of my life.
Spiritually to grow into the person that Christ would have me become and to reach out and support and encourage other sparkpeople who are also making this journey to a healthier lifestyle
To continue improving my choices of healthier food, and incorporating the right kinds of exercise to help me become a more fit person.
I am from Michigan, am happily married. I have four children, one boy and 3 girls and 9 grand children and 4 great granddaughters and 2 great grandsons. Have 7 grand doggies.
Like reading, listening to light jazz, and watching movies with my husband. I also enjoy rubber stamping, crocheting and cross stitching.

Hello Shirl, thanks for the update on your husband's eyes. Depending on the exact cause of his condition he may indeed be getting to where he will not need the shots any longer. My husband started on his in June of 2014. In late 2015 his doctor put him at 11-12 weeks apart for a couple times. The last time he put him at 4 months, used a smaller dose, and said my husband would go "on maintenance." So in his case, at least, there may never be a "need no more" but even at every few months, it is better than going blind. Best wishes and congratulations on the great news. Carol

Hi Shirl, thanks for straightening me out about A.J. I've been getting to know you for awhile now but obviously missed that detail. It still sounds like a fun time with a grandson. Movies are a good excuse to sit and rest, and they can be thought provoking as well. My husband won't sit still for them and we have no one else in town to watch them with either. A.J. sounds special. Have a great time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think I might have to falter and replace the microwave. It was a harsh day without it, lol. Never really thought about it, but it does come in handy. :)

How great that you and your DD are a team with your fitbits! I remember a while back, your fitness program took off again -- is that what renewed your motivation?
When I was down in NC recently, my SIL and I made an agreement to get fitbits and be buddies. We both made good on our promise on 1/19. I, too, look at exercise in a different way. I like knowing my HR during exercise, though I didn't think that feature would be all that useful to me, it is.
Wishing you a super charged Wednesday, friend!
