On holiday Surfers Paradise 09
Kayaking Surfers Paradise Oct 09
Water World Oct 09
I remember what its like to be healthy, now I will take small but decisive steps to get there again!
Smokefree since April 20th, 2009 - Woohoo!
I went travelling in June 2010 - 2 months of changing countries and no work was a nightmare to my routine. Now I have just resurfaced and found my routine again- gonna be hard work but I am going to find the balance and maintain it!
Note to self:
All it takes is consistency and planning one step ahead!
Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels!
Success equals heading in the right direction, so I need to be pleased with myself from day one - not just when I get results!
Been focusing on making healthy progress in all aspects of my life: physically, emotionally, psychologically & spiritually = being happy! Using the other goals tab to track these.

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.¨¸♥¨`*,¸.*´¨`* .¸♥.*.*¨¸.´¸.*
