This was such an amazing hike into the John Muir Wilderness. This is my motivation to lose!





The reward after the trek up the trail, but there's still more lakes to find!

This is for me

Like most people, I've battled my weight for as long as I can remember. Carbs and sweets are my downfall, and I've had much too much of that for a while now, but overall I eat fairly healthfully. My biggest problem is moving.

I became self-employed two years ago, and I think (1) the stress of that and (2) the desire to get it all done NOW, keeps me at my desk for too much of the day. I know I need to move more; that is my biggest challenge.

6/28/2014: So add to my list of challenges, on 12/31/13 I broke my ankle. Happy New Year, NOT! Surgery to repair 1/14/14, PT, yada yada. Have worked my butt off (literally) since getting back to the gym in April. I'm 13# lighter than at NY's and I'm feeling fitter and stronger. But I ain't done yet!!

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
