Me and Joe
I am on a long journey to find myself, get healthy and strong, and to bring happiness to my life. I keep starting strong, and making improvements, only to stop and regain. I have been on this site for far too long to not have reached my goal.
I am now 40, I'll be 41 in January. My one wish was to not be battling my weight before I turned 40. What happened, why am I still struggling? I'm a very positive a driven person, I'm focusing my energy on me. I'm reaching my goal this coming year.
1) Log all food eaten, if it passes my lips It gets logged.
2) walk 10 minutes a day, adding 5 min each week and working up to 60 min 5 times a week, but maintaining at least 10 minutes each day.
3) Do a 10 minute strength training workout each day
4) connect with/ post on/ or support 3 people a day on spark people or elsewhere.
5) Re-motivate everyday.

I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey.

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.
You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.
Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...
Because you ARE.
“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.” - Groucho Marx
