Vision statement: To live a long life, to look and feel better around others and feel better about myself, to make long term changes to have a more productive and enjoyable life. I can do this by being more active physically through exercise activities and opportunities like bike riding , swimming, and walking nature trails. Visit parks and walk at a pace where my heart rate isn't going wacky, having a sexy body and remembering, "...the body is the temple of the Lord...". Also, to learn not to be self-critical when things go wrong but to pick up the pieces and move on. To remember laughter and venture in the great outdoors to lift spirits, to find hobbies that promote healthy habits and to seek comforts outside of food. Most of all, celebrate life and embrace its treasures.

    We are right there with you Melissa.... so all of us can get back on track together. Slowly, a little at a time. Right now our challenge is to do 10% better the rest of the month than what we have done the first 2/3 of the month. I posted where we were at in one of our challenges, I think the Sparkling Swans so look there and see where you were at and see what you can do in the next few days to get your game moving so you are ready to go on the 1st. Make the rest of this month practice time for September. emoticon Let's keep pushing each other, we are all needing that boost. emoticon

    Risk - Anais Nin

    And then the day came,
    when the risk
    to remain tight
    in a bud
    was more painful
    than the risk
    it took
    to Blossom.
