Donna's Ongoing Diet/Exercise Journey

I don't always do what I know I should be doing for a variety of reasons (excuses) but my biggest excuse of not having the time is no longer valid. In the Fall of 2008, I became a victim of the economy and lost my job. I decided it was time to follow my passion so I have become a full time watercolor ...
I've been on this journey since childhood and most of the time it's been a real struggle. Along the way, I've learned the good habits of strength training, exercise and proper nutrition. I don't always do what I know I should be doing for a variety of reasons (excuses) but my biggest excuse of not having the time is no longer valid. In the Fall of 2008, I became a victim of the economy and lost my job. I decided it was time to follow my passion so I have become a full time watercolor artist. I also want to dedicate time to improving my overall health.

I'm here to get serious about loosing weight and living a healthy lifestyle.

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. That sounds like a great idea to weigh every day and only record once a month. I need to go back to my routine of weighing more often because I gained while I wasn't weighing.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

There are many gifts under the Christmas tree.
But the best one is the gift of your friendship.

Thank you for reading my blog about MOTIVATION! So here's hoping we all stay motivated and get our exercise in and don't gain a bunch of weight due to Christmas temptations!
