Being the Change

My motto is: "Be the change you wish to see in the world" by Gandhi.
There is so much wonderful in this world I want to keep working until all of it is beautiful and wonderful.

First I must continue to work on myself. Getting healthy, Getting Greener in all actions and being Positive in all areas. All this to be an inspiration to others around me and make everywhere in this world a wonderful and healthy place in which to be.

I will be 53 this year and emotionally I totter between feeling like I am in my twenty's with so much I want to accomplish and do to 60's with all the decisions of growing older brings.
Physically I look younger most people think I am 10 years younger.I attribute this to being a little plump- my wrinkles don't show as bad and never had the stress of a marriage. I do however do not physically feel like I am in my 50's either- the best of it all.

I am blessed I have a wonderful daughter and granddaughter. My mother is still here and is facing multiple challenges of getting older. I have a fantastic Aunt. all of which I stay in contact and see on a regular basis.

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.”
-Tom Venuto

Are You Master of Your Spark Domain?

Remember the Seinfeld Game? Remember how quickly Jerry, Kramer and Elaine all were out? Let's see if you can do better. Here is how it works.

Beginning midnight April 1, track. Track everything. Nutrition, water, exercise, the whole shebang. Don't track something, you are out. Fess up. Miss your 8 cups of water, out. Blow your calories, you are out. Fess up on this thread. Exercise without tracking, out. To make it fun, don't exercise at least one hour a week, out.

Once a week on Sundays (say), roll call for those who still are "in" and playing.

Deceptively simple, but it's not. Who's in? Starting roll call this Sunday. Ready, set, go!

(Free year of Spark membership for the winner.) Are you in?

Oh, you make me smile! emoticon
My son always says I look younger with a bit of weight, because my wrinkles dont show. That's something good to say about being a bit plump! emoticon

I feel pretty good most of the time and look and feel younger, too.
I did have a spell for a couple months of not feeling right, but that has passed and I am on a mission!

Let's stay positive and make our 50's awesome!

My stress is less, now that no Hubbies are in the picture. One thing I never seemed to get right. emoticon

Have a wonderful day! emoticon

Chris

“TAKE ACTION! Wanting is not enough; Act upon your goals!
If somebody was watching your day-to-day behavior, would they be able to see what you’re working towards; what your goals are?
If the answer is no, FIX IT!”
