Sensible eating and exercise most days is a winning plan.
Currently living in Brisbane Australia and loving it.
Have 2 dogs that are my babies - even though one is pushing 9!
Am loving reading at the moment, so far into book 4 of Earth's Children (Clan of the Cave Bear etc), A Thousand Splendid Suns and the latest Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter book - absolutely love the series.
TV also rates a mention with the UK series Being Human blowing my mind. Now that I am up to date with it, it will be interesting to see what the US version is like.
"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible. We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us. That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us. We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort. We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible. And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself. For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all. Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?" -Geneen Roth
TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"I believe that we are who we choose to be. Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself. Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it. Nobody knows what you want except for you. And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it. So don't give up on your dreams." -Unknown
Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem." -Jillian Michaels
"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy." -Deborah Day
Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice. The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING. Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE." -Lorna Jane
Hey Sparkfriend, I hope your week is going great so far. Make the most of each day as it comes, and choose to be amazing! Put forth your best effort....because you are worth it! Hugs, Pixie
"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." -Og Mandino
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! Hugs, Pixie
