I'm not yet where I want to be - but I'm better than yesterday!
While it's not my first Diet Rodeo, I decided that this was the year that I needed to get serious and acknowledge that small, consistent steps will get me where I want to be, both in terms of my weight and building good habits.
After a lifetime of body image issues in my youth and 20s, I finally managed to get to a healthier state in my 30s - even taught group fitness classes! - only to allow it to get away from me by just not paying attention.
I'm now at a stage in my life where my health and vitality depends on being at my ideal weight.
Oh, and I HATE having my picture taken. Sorry! Even my friends comment that our vacation photos never have people in them.
When I'm not at home with hubby and cats, I'm a corporate type. Fortunately, I work for a great employer. Now, if we could just get the economy to cooperate....
Lose weight and improve my overall fitness!
(My husband says I could be a better driver, but that's for another time...)
1) Write it down.
2) Keeping the fitness regime consistent.
3) Watch the sugar intake.
Currently living in, but not from, MN. A lovely place to live but a well-kept secret, due to the awful weather.
I love to travel, read, and quilt.

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.
You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.
Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...
Because you ARE.
“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.” - Groucho Marx
