"HEALTH IS THE GREATEST POSSESION, CONTENTMENT THE GREATEST TREASURE, CONFIDENCE IS THE GREATEST FRIEND, AND SELF AWARENESS THE GREATEST JOY." Lao Tzu ~~ Find your greatest possession, treasure, joy and friend TODAY and EVERYDAY !!

I am starting off the new year with my New Years Intentions to get fit and healthier ~~ I am 50+ years young, and my family genetics are NOT good ones so i have decided it is time to try and offset as much of that as i can. I quit smoking in 2008, and now it is time to take off the weight (again) i gained after quitting, and the weight i have put on from bi-polar meds ~~ they make it WAYYYYYYYY easier to put on weight and much harder to take it off and keep it off! But i am determined to make a new start! And that means eating healthier to feel better, and getting physically fit to feel the best!! Today is a new day, everyday is a fresh start, and we must look forward and make EVERY day count and do EVERYTHING we can to make it the BEST day we can! No excuses! If i can quit smoking, then i can do this! John Q Adams said it well, "Courage and perseverance have magical talisman before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish intothin air!" I am STRONG!! I am CAPABLE!! I am DETERMINED!! I CAN DO EVERYTHING!! I WILL NOT GIVE UP AND I WILL NEVER GIVE IN!! It is all in our attitudes and perspectives. To change everything, change your mind. So i am changing my mindset to one of life! And i am going to live my life the best i can, in the healthiest and most fit way i can, and then i can play and run and jump and dance and laugh with abandon, because i am fit both physically and mentally! Life is what you make it! Make It The VERY BEST you can!! and that is all you can do!! My new motto is: Get Fit and Go Out There and LIVE!!

“Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.” ~ Denis Waitley

I was doing so well for several weeks but lost my momentum and reverting to old habits and comforts the past few days. It’s time to change my mindset and start moving forward on my journey to a healthier life. I’m glad I have friends like you to make the journey with!
