Do Over working...
The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step!
Like countless others, I have struggled with my weight for my entire life. I am at it again...
"Success is stumbling from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm." - Winston Churchill
My goal is to eat to live. Healthy living and healthy eating habits are my main concern after years and years of doing the opposite. In practical terms, my goals are:
1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day
2. Maintain weight loss of 1 to 2 lbs/week
3. Eat 5 times/per day focusing on low carb and high fiber choices
4. Get strength training in 3 times/week, get about 30 minutes of cardio EVERYDAY
I hope to run a 5K someday. Right now it is a distant dream.
My program is all about long term, sustainable healthy eating based on good, healthful habits. I am arming myself with knowledge and information. I am tracking everything I eat and tracking my fitness using Sparkpeople recommendations.
I live in Southwestern Connecticut with my wonderful husband and our 2 sons. I work for a large consumer products company and I love what I do.
I live my life by a very simple motto... if God brings you to it, He will bring your through it. You may not be able to change the wind but you can always adjust your sails. I try to make the best out of any situation. My joy and energy comes from my family, from my friends, and my work. I enjoy New York Yankees baseball, cheering hard for my children at their baseball games. I enjoy entertaining, reading and Sparkpeople. I love the support I get from my Spark Friends.

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are!

“The one thing all famous authors, world class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.” Yet still, they began their journeys, Mike Dooley
“In the beginning, the price of giving great love is risking that it won't be returned. Until you understand, of course, that great love is always returned. With interest.” - Mike Dooley
“I do believe that the single most important thing I could ever share with you with regard to maximizing the health, harmony, and happiness in your life can be summed up in just two words: 'Love Yourself'” - Mike Dooley

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
Its up to you to make your goals and dreams a reality, Sparkfriend! Take responsibility, and do your best each day to make progress. You are totally worth the effort, you know!
I hope your week has been great so far!
