Think Healthy!

I am in my fifth year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my fourth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2015. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I celebrated my fourth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2015. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 2 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

Even though I have conquered all of the above, I am faced with an even bigger "challenge". I lost my 26 year old son in November to Anorexia Nervosa. I am in the first year of my grieving process and it is very difficult. I need to stay healthy, but, it is not the first thing on my mind. And, since he passed away from counting calories, weighing himself on the scale 3 times per day, and eating halves of everything - it has been a real mental challenge for me.

My favorite quotes...

�All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything!��Gary W. Goldstein

Goals are dreams with deadlines. ---Diana Scharf Hunt

Take care of your body. It�s the only place you have to live. - Jim Rohn

What you are doing is not nearly as important as how you feel about what you are doing. - Unknown

There'll be two dates on your tombstone. And all your friends will read 'em. But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em. - Kevin Welch

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. �Walt Disney

Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice and do so against all the risks confronting you.�Guru Singh

No Matter How You Feel, Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, and Never Give Up - Unknown

emoticon emoticon Thank you for the encouraging words on my "lousy" blog this week! I really was feeling sorry for myself and that doesn't help! Leave it to you to say just the right thing - I did grab a steamy romance novel and am reading a few chapters every time I have to rest (don't know it that counts as a good book but it's fun!) I do appreciate you so much!

We went to my son's house yesterday for a cookout. His girlfriend bought flowers and planted them in front of their townhouse. She got some good prices at a roadside stand in Pennsylvania.

Way to go on getting a garden planted. As long as it is in by the 30th of May, it should do well for our area.
