“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but, remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” Epicurus, philosopher
“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”
My goal is to love how I feel in my body.
My program is to pay attention to my true hunger and feeling full, eat slowly and taste and savor the food I eat, run-walk every day at least 10 minutes, hydrate more, meditate and pray 15 minutes every day, have positive self-talk and to never give up. I need to do this whether I feel like it or not. It's a daily decision.
I live on the beautiful central Oregon coast with my husband and our Pomeranian, Cisco. I'm Happily Married and In Love.
We enjoy our beach hikes and hunting for agates that we bring home and polish. Our kids are grown with families in CA and NY and our families are in IN and NY so we do travel and they do too so we can see each other. We cherish our retirement and I love working on my health and fitness every day.

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”

Awe, just read your sweet comment & I thank you for all of your kind words and concern of my trip to Chicago... It was a bummer things didn't turn out as planned and I came home with injuries. I'm thankful things weren't more serious and no broken bones! It feels awesome to be moving again, after a week of no fitness... I did not like it one bit, and my body was happy to do some much needed cardio. I am not sure if I gained anything, but hopefully not. I didn't track for awhile and no fitness for that week. But since it was only just over a week, hoping if I went up at all, it was only a few pounds or so. I am deciding if I'm going to weigh myself tomorrow or wait until the weekend... Hmm... Hope you're doing great darling!

"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."
I hope you're having a good weekend so far, Sparkfriend! I just wanted to stop by and share a couple of great quotes with you. Keep pushing to reach your goals, one day at a time. Always believe that you are worth your absolute best effort...because you are!
"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."
