Hi, My name is Josie and I am glad you are here!

I joined SparkPeople almost two years ago. Little by little I have made good changes in my lifestyle and they are beginning to add up because I have learned, and continue to learn, to be consistent.

I believe 2015 is going to be a GREAT year for me! I am finally living a mostly healthy lifestyle with good food choices, controlled calories, fitness on most days of the week, 4-6 veggies and fruits (almost) daily, low sodium on the vast majority of days, and at least 10 glasses of water on MOST days. Plus, this is the year I will re-establish a good and stable bedtime routine for sound and restful sleep.

This is all just an experiment in which I earn experience points, and when I am finished, I will know how my body works and what it needs to be healthy.

I hope you'll join me in making 2015 the year you see your healthful dreams come true by a determined and committed effort one day at a time.

Never forget that failure is only failure if you quit. Otherwise, failure is just very good information you can use to make better choices and to learn more about your body's reaction to various foods, nutrients, amounts of water intake, exercise routines.


Happy New Year, my friends!
May this be the best year of our lives!!!

"Your motivation will be as strong as the amount of effort you put into making your own decisions (regardless of what they might be) with conscious awareness. Your motivation will be weak when you consider yourself to be helpless against your own urges, feelings and desires, or a victim of circumstances beyond your control."

Things I am learning this week: Wholehearted resolve reveals itself through earnest effort that flows from a willingness to adjust course in order to accomplish a purpose. Adjustments made with wholehearted resolve to possess the goal desired will produce lasting results I can live with for the long haul. Thinking of you and praying for your journey as we walk this way together. Darlene

I've been meaning to check up on you but for the last 8 days I've been in Maryland visiting my sister and working off a tablet that has its challenges. I am borrowing my son's MAC right now. We will return home on Sunday. My mother is also with us. I signed up for BLC 28.
Taking about family moving in. My sister who I am visiting is going to have to accommodate her bedridden MIL because MIL's house is having to get some repairs done due to mould. So it's a good thing we're leaving on Sunday. MIL is due tonight She'll occupy the basement where we are.
