Getting Fit and Going Green!!

So, its time for an update to this page and to my username; more out of boredom than anything else. Although, I suppose it is also a great time to reevaluate my goals and kick start my motivation.

I have been a member of SP since late June '08 and am truly grateful for its presence in my life. I am learning so much about life from so many inspiring people. It is a great support system and I love the features for keeping myself on track.

So, its time for an update to this page and to my username; more out of boredom than anything else. Although, I suppose it is also a great time to reevaluate my goals and kick start my motivation.

I have been a member of SP since late June '08 and am truly grateful for its presence in my life. I am learning so much about life from so many inspiring people. It is a great support system and I love the features for keeping myself on track.

I am still in the middle of a career change (from Social Services/Behavioral Therapist to Business) and have yet to land a new job. Nevertheless, I am staying positive and enjoying myself. My time is spent focusing on my MBA, getting healthy, going green, and spending time with the ones I love.

Since joining SparkPeople I have lost nearly 15 pounds (Woo Hoo); the progress has been slower than I would like, but I figure that slow progress is better than NO progress. Besides, I haven't been depriving myself of food that I love. And, I have been working out 5 to 6 times a week. I AM making change for the better.

With that, I think I will set some mini goals. Maybe this will help me to stay focused and remain optimistic.

140 lbs: Jillian Michaels Wii Game
135 lbs: Massage (Have a gift certificate I would love to use)
130 lbs: New Pair of Boots
125 lbs: New Outfit from Anthrpologie or New Leaf Eco Boutique

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind;
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet;
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them;
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true;
To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best;
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own;
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future;

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile;
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others;
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear; and too happy to permit the presence of trouble;
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds;

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

~C.D. Larson
