After 9 months of maintaining, I'm loving life! 2014 is a rocking year!!!

After one year (2013) of being active again on Spark, I lost over 70 pounds, attained my final weight goal and am in the best shape of my life. This time I've gotten it right! Lifestyle changes, not just diet!

Now I've maintained in my goal range so far in 2014, learning my limits and enjoying my new healthy lifestyle and body! Goals are now to keep improving - to run longer and faster, and to be stronger! I love training for new challenges!

Good morning and Happy Monday! I wish you a successful and healthy week. My food for thought today is by Theodore Roosevelt:

“With self-discipline most anything is possible”

So I challenge you to set your goals and work on self-discipline this week and see where you end up at the end of the week!

emoticon Just stopping by with Friday's food for thought by Carl Jung:

"We cannot change anything unless we accept it."

So, my wish for you is that you accept what your goals are so that you can change them and achieve them. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Have a Fabulously Fit Friday! emoticon emoticon

emoticon and good morning. Happy Thursday. I am stopping by with my quote for today by Henry Ward Beecher:

“The body is like a piano, and happiness is like music. It is needful to have the instrument in good order.”

So, here's wishing you a day filled with healthy choices which will keep your body in good order and your life filled with happiness! Have a Terrific Thursday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
