January 2015 Here I am again. In the last 2 years I've gained and lost many pounds but am now 30 pounds over my ideal. I've joined a 30 kick start program online which I hope will give me motivation to get back on track. I hate exercising! In the summer I walk lots but in the winter it's too cold and dark so I do nothing and ignore my bike and treadmill sitting in front of me. think my biggest issue is portion control. I just eat too much. I know WHAT to do just can't stick with it for some reason. I'll be 45 in a few months and I need to start looking after myself better. January, 2012 This is the year I will reach and maintain my goal weight. I did reach it in October, but then fell off the wagon and am now up 11 pounds - GRRR!!

    "This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk the forest and be part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy."~Susan Polis Schutz

    "The fact that our happiness depends upon our relationship with ourself, leads to an important conclusion: that we alone are responsible for our happiness. Nobody else can make us happy and fulfilled. Only we can decide how we view our lives, and how we choose to respond to all the events in our lives. "~Theun Mares

    "I always wanted a happy ending...now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."~Gilda Radner

    DIETS

    Give me the strength
    and time to stay away
    from all the goodies in the fridge
    that keep me looking that way!

    The chocolates and the frostings
    that all taste so sweet
    that extra bag of candy
    left from Trick or Treat!

    My mouth is a watering
    and trying to give in
    but my thighs are staring up at me
    WARNING: It's a Sin!

    My tummy sure is growling
    and turning to and fro
    but my sag there just laughs
    it don't need to grow!

    After all of this
    a running through my mind
    Ah Hell, I'll start tomorrow
    for now--It's quitting time!!!

    "We must spend most of our lives conjugating three verbs: to want, to have, and to do"~Evelyn Underhill

    "Nothing will work unless you do."~John Wooden

    "There are really only two dimensions to the concept of attitude--you either behave as though you are a victim of circumstance, or you take full responsibility of your situation."~Richard Rudd

    "The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention...A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words."~Rachel Naomi Remen

    "God, grant me the Motivation to get off the couch and MOVE. The will power to navigate a world of fried, sugary, fatty, salty temptations. The peace of mind to not stress about the numbers on a scale. And the Common Sense to chose food for fuel and accept myself as I am." ~Unknown {also borrowed from fellow Sparker, SPARKPIXIE}

    I asked for Strength...
    And God gave me Difficulties to make me strong.
    I asked for Wisdom...
    And God gave me Problems to solve.
    I asked for Prosperity...
    And God gave me Brain and energy to work.
    I asked for Courage...
    And God gave me Danger to overcome.
    I asked for Love...
    And God gave me Troubled people to help.
    I asked for Favors...
    And God gave me opportunities.
    I received nothing I wanted
    But received everything I needed.


    There are moments in your life that make you and sets the course of who you're going to be. Sometimes they're little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're big moments you never saw coming. No one asks for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterward that counts. That's when you find out who you are.


    Attitude controls, rules, affects and directs your career, your family life, your personal life and you. It affects or can impact your relationships, your business success and your health. Attitude has power. Personal Power. And the best part is: YOU CAN CONTROL IT. You determine the way you think about, develop and deliver your attitude. *Source: Jeffery Gitomer*
