Fitness Minutes: 101,807

My Goals:
-At least 5 servings of veggies per day
-No wheat
-At least 60 grams of a variety of plant based proteins per day

My Program:
I love endorphins, so I love to work out. I work out at the Y 3-4 days a week, some sort of strength training at home the other days.

I drink at least 16 glasses of water per day without trying. I think I was a fish in a past life.

Tracking my foods is my biggest challenge, the key to my everlasting success, the hardest part to maintain, the easiest to give up, the carrot at the end of the stick. As long as I make myself keep tracking, I know I'll eventually get down to a healthy weight, because it automagically keeps me accountable!

Personal Information:
I work as a community organizer for women's shelter programs.
I've had chronic depression & PTSD for as long as I can remember. Recently, my psych dr prescribed "Mandatory Fun, Joy, Passion and not getting into any fuddy duddy routines." Best advice I've ever gotten!

Other Information:
Don't put me in any boxes, especially with labels on them.

Friendship happens in that special moment
when someone reaches out to another,
trusts, comforts, believes in another,
and makes a special difference
that no one else can make.

Thank you for making that kind of difference
in my life.
I'm so happy to call you my friend

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose,
for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
~Mary Pickford~

Have a great week.

Love never fails; Character never quits;
and with patience and persistence;
Dreams do come true.
~~Pete Maravich~~

Time to see that your dreams come true.
Have an awesome weekend.

True friendship isn't seen with the eyes, it is felt with the heart.
When there is trust, understanding, loyalty, and sharing.
True friendship is a rare feeling, but when it is found
It has profound impact on our well-being, strength, and character.
True friendship does not need elaborate gifts
Or spectacular events in order to be valuable or valued.
To ensure long-lasting quality and satisfaction,
True friendship only needs a few key ingredients:
Undying loyalty, unmatched understanding, unsurpassed trust,
Deep and soulful secrets, and endless sharing.
These ingredients, mixed with personality and a sense of humor,
Can make a friendship last a lifetime!
This is just a thank you, my friend, for all the wonderful and colorful
Special ingredients You've brought to my life!

A friend shared this with me-she lives in Canada and has been helping care for her 93 year old neighbor who is moving into an assisted living facility next week. I hope you enjoy this poem as much as I did and wishing you a Wonderful Wednesday.

[ found this in one of Josie's old purses.

Age is a quality of mind,

If you have left your dreams behind,

If hope is lost;

If you no longer look ahead,

If your ambitions' fires are dead -

Then you are old,

But if to life you give the best,

And if in life you keep the jest,

If love you hold,

No matter how the birthdays fly,

You are not old
