A year from now you may wish you started today...
Shared Fitness Tracker
PROVERBS31JULIA is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Reading some blogs and other articles recently - my head is not sure how or what to do next in terms of "setting goals"...
Getting more focused on doing (or re-doing) those activities back into my life??
I've never really been at a "normal" weight for my age. It's difficult to "picture" what I would actually look like when I reach goal. More importantly is how will I feel about myself when I reach goal? Will it frighten me? I know I will feel better. There was a brief time in high school where I lost 30 pounds and was pretty close to goal weight but still 15-20 pounds over what the "chart guessers" thought. Yet I remember how energetic I felt, how awesome it felt to try on smaller pants, guessing at size, only to discover that they also were TOO BIG, and going down to a smaller size. Really cool. So I want that feeling again.
I've see various relatives struggling in their 70's and 80's because they made poor choices in their diet, didn't exercise, and they are having an awful time. Yet, I do see some friends in their 80's and 90's who are really ROCKIN', in great health, energetic, and I want to be that way when I'm in my 80's or 90
Well, so far, the program is to just get this set up and figure out what is what, decide what to do, get some sleep, GET OFF THE INTERNET (including the wonderfully fun websites like this one!), and get some SLEEP!
EAT VEGGIES! I love them, but why won't I stop and prepare them for myself?
Go WALK and WALK/RUN
GET REBOUNDER SET UP!!
Do 15 minutes of DeCluttering 4-6 days a week (FlyLady!)
Okay, I'm not done with this list now. But I'm giving myself permission to stop here and revisit it later. It shouldn't go away anytime soon, as long as SparkGuy has enough squirrels running on the electric generators to keep powering the computers holding all of the SparkPeople pages!!
Then I can update this later with more profound coherent goals.
*I'm north of Wichita, KS not far - if that's where you are, drop me a note! Maybe we can walk??
*Send me SparkMail if you want my email address.

A hug is something special
A hug can give such joy
A hug can say a thousand words
Without a single spoken one
A hug can put things right again
When everything seems wrong
A hug can be a lovely thing
It doesn't have to contain a touch
A hug can be on paper
The word 'hug' just means so much
So I'm sending you a special hug
Not physical, it's true
But this hug is sent to let you know
I think the world of you!
Have a wonderful week as we transition from February to March!

A Little end-of-the-week Encouragement
We don't have to worry
about how the week went
or how the next one will go.
Because all our days, all our ways,
are in the hands of One who loves us.
We sometimes feel uncertain...
could that possibly be made into good?
Then just when we least expect it, we find the answer--
that all our mistakes, all our hurts,
all we wish we could trade from these past few days
(and from a lifetime)
are being noticed, handled with care, turned into
something more than we could imagine.
You're loved. You're valuable.
You've got a purpose.
God's got a plan.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him,
who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
