Journey Partner

Share your journey with someone. Having someone in your corner who understands what you're going through is invaluable. My partner and I encourage and scold each other, and celebrate milestones - small and big - together. Idon't know that I would have gotten this far without her.

My Food Quote

I tell myself "If you're going to count your calories, make your calories count!" Then, I think twice before I put something in my mouth...is this going to make me feel full as well as nourish my body?

weekend

It is going to be a sunny, warm 2 days to work out in and exercise. I plan to walk at leased 6 miles a day and will probably do double that working in the garden. Enjoy if your State is going to get the sun.

MERCY

The bible says that God's mercies are renewed everyday. With this in mind, how can we not stay motivated on a daily bases. Even if we get off course from time to time, keeping in mind that mercy is extended to us on any given day, we can get back up and continue on and God will take us through.

Staying positive!

I talk myself up! If I think I am too tired to do one more thing, I give myself a mental shake and make the effort. One more block, one more repetition or one more household chore. The feeling of satisfaction is huge!

Accountability

I let other people in on my goals. Then periodically when I run into people they ask me how I am doing. I don't want to have to admit to someone I have been slacking. So when I feel like not eating healthy or not exercising, I remember that other people are watching. It holds me accountable.
