Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

Gail, one day at a time is the ONLY way to deal with this. (In my humble opinion) emoticon

I've always liked this quote, it's so very true. I had a really relaxing weekend, hope you did too. But today it's back to the grind. Let's don't forget to get our bodies moving. I'm going to try for 15,000 steps today, join me if you dare.

Hope you have a fantastic Monday, Gail!

emoticon emoticon You know I always hear of great places in FL to visit from you (your friend)! And I live here! emoticon You say she lives there! Wow! I love the white sandy beaches up there! We made it to about an hour from there in the panhandle. I will have to put St. George Island on my list of places to visit! That is about a 5 hours from us. Have a good week! Don't work too hard! Use that sunscreen! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for your support Gail. I loved your words, the struggle between the want and the will. That is what it is all about. But this is a 'battle' I intend to win! On to better health and more active days! Hope your weekend is going well my friend! emoticon emoticon
