"Habit is persistence in practice." - Octavia E. Butler

Octavia Butler said, "First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you're inspired or not." She was talking about writing, but in my opinion it sums up other aspects like eating right and exercise. If I wait to feel inspired to lose weight, to eat right, exercise, plan and be accountable- then I may not always get the right conditions... but if I persist in doing these things regardless of my mood, I will make them habit.

Thanks for the sunshine goodie! Woke up this morning to a 'balmy' 21 degrees! That's way better than the single digit mornings we've been having. I may even try to get a good walk in after I take the kids to the bus stops today! Have a wonderful day yourself :)

Thanks for the encouragement on my blog.... I'm trying to get back to the baby steps again instead of giving up. Also trying to focus on food intake which is hard when we've been snow bound for the past few days... when I'm home and bored - I eat! I'm still staying low carb but I know too many calories isn't good either. I am excited about meeting with the surgeon on Wed. and I just hope he can schedule the surgery quickly!

I just read on your page that you live in New Zealand. My husband will be very jealous. That is the one place he's been dying to move to for years - he says there are more sheep than people! It does look to be a gorgeous place to live! Have a great weekend!
