Light -- BE.
Life is a song; love is the music.
HAIL to the Victors.
My last goal was set almost a YEAR ago. The interim time a flown, and when it wasn't flying, it was sliding away.
I'd almost met my last goal, when Mimi died -- nothing done for me for a few weeks -- and all habits falling away. Suddenly, spring break arrived with travel and visiting and walking but again an interruption in the habits. And then summer vacation, with lots of exercise but also lots of food. **sigh**
I am not competing against anyone but myself. I'm inspired by Greg's IRONMAN training. I'm NOT inspired by my wardrobe -- little issue of clothing size.
So here we go again!
Time for a new goal. Actually, this is the longest that I've had with a single team... and the longest that I've ever spent on a "diet". I'm pleased to say that this SparkPeople "diet" is becoming a lifestyle.
So, the easiest thing to follow is still my weight. The next 10% weight loss for me will take me to 145lbs - my weight in high school! (Next goal: Christmas.) Actually, I'm impressed that I've made my 1st goal a MONTH ahead of time goal. Yeah!
And I'm pleased that this is becoming a lifestyle. My family doesn't expect me home before exercise, or to put them to bed before exercise. I'm learning about calories and good/ bad calories as quickly as I can.
I'm successful in my marriage, family, household, and two businesses, as well as my own #1 employee. I'm strong enough and smart enough, but not on my own. So here it goes...
I want to laugh every day.
I want to feel good in my "own skin" every day.
I want to exercise every day.
I want to eat great foods that are great for me -- in moderation!
My 20 year plan... Hawaii. I had said it before, but this last October, mmmm, I nearly didn't come home. Well, I don't think my husband would have really left me behind, but its doubtful that I would have noticed.
If God invented the marathon to keep us from doing stupid things, the triathlon must have taken Him complete by surprise. (unknown)
