The 3 Cs of life; Choice, Chance, Change. You must make the Choice to take the Chance if you want anything to Change.

It is time. It is past time. The time is NOW.... I am going to do this every day, every single day even if I fail during part of the day I will stop, drink some water and keep going. I am going to reach my goals of being healthy and fit. I will because I am worth the work, the determination, the challenges to make my life a better, happier and healthier one. I will love myself and take care of ME.

"I dont want to stare at the ceiling in a hospital room one day thinking, I wish I would have taken better care of myself and not allowed this to happen. Jason Anderson

The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.
-John C. Maxwell

I will incoperate food changes and exercises that I can readily do forever. I will do this by drastically cutting down or maybe eventually eliminating sugar other than from fresh foods. I also would like to eliminate wheat as it is known today nothing like what our grandparents ate.
I want to keep my physio exercises as a routine that becomes habit, and also get more strength training in.

A happy, healthy relationship with food and exercise is what I am aiming for.

A year from now you'll wish you had started today.

IT IS NOT PERFECTION I'M STRIVING FOR, IT IS PERSEVERANCE.

"What can I do today to make my tomorrow a better one?" BEMORESTUBBORN

"It takes effort and belief to persevere and stay dedicated to accomplish your goal. When you find yourself doubting whether the effort is worth it, visualize how you will feel and what you will have once your goal is completed."
-Catherine Pulsifer

ONE thing I did NOT do was. MAKE EXCUSES.This is a journey of choice, nobody can or will do it for you. " CRISSA1669

"You can only achieve what your mind allows you to." JUSTCHELLE75

Feeling healthy and good about yourself is not an option, it is a necessity.

Part of the reason I wanted to do a 5K is to show you that YOU can do anything you set your mind to do. If a woman with herniated, degenerated disks, pinched nerves, bad knees, fibromyalgia, and arthritis can walk a 5K with a walker, YOU can take courage that you are capable of aiming for better every day. INDYGIRL

Don't Limit Your Challenges... Challenge Your Limits.

So instead of feeling hopeless, decide to feel empowered Ralph Marston

To live a satisfying life requires two steps...
1. Plan your life goals.
2. Act on your plan - every day.
- jlh

2014 My word is BALANCE.... body,mind and spirit. I will take care and love myself in all aspects. I will work to make all 3 in balance and work towards a happier, healthier me.

This day is what you have to work with, no matter how much you could do yesterday, how much you may or may not be able to do tomorrow. That entails physical, emotional and of course our food!!

What can I do today that will make my tomorrow better? So knowing that I am trying to make each tomorrow better, today will incorporate moving, eating and thinking healthy with proper doses of both!

I want to lose this wt. to get healthier, to do all I can to not get cancer, to help my ruined knees and back last longer, to look and feel better about myself and to be able to pick up my grandkids and play with them.


When I just don't think I can I will re read Matts blog....

I can't believe that a new spark friend told me she is going to start her day with my page! OMG wow. I can't believe it and goes to show you that you never know what may help someone else.
I am honoured and also said that I have had a specific friend really say something to me that has stuck. Had to go back and remind myself countless times but still it is in my head.....What can I do today to make my tomorrow a better day!!!?? thanks BEMORESTUBBORN!

Thank you for the soothing music spark goodie. That will make me feel better I know and I appreciate it so much. I'm getting on my recumbent bike next after I post this and I'm wishing you the best of luck with you exercising and hopefully we both won't be hurting alot in the morning. I know that alot of my pain today was mopping and mopping our kitchen floor with the new Shark steamer mop and it makes you work your knees and everything else to do a good job. I'm still trying to get used to it so not totally in love with it yet. Because of having RA, getting down on the floor to scrub anymore is a no-no and working with the sponge mops got to be a chore to keep that system going. We dairy farm, so the floors really need a scrubbing from time to time, that's for sure!! Thanks again, Karen emoticon

There are other things you can try as well. Use a gentle shampoo, preferably herbal (spendy unfortunately) or something without the sulfites. Add Rosemary essential oil to your shampoo or simply apply it to your head. When you shampoo vigorously scrub your scalp, this stimulates the hair follicles and gets them active.

My hair has grown out from a very short pixie cut, I'm talking short! I use WEN and my own homemade herbal shampoo, alternating, and I scrub my scalp like crazy! Its grown very fast and people are amazed.

Rosemary essential oil is, well, essential! It REALLY gets hair growing. Rub a small amount in and scrub your scalp well. Then rinse.

Good conditioners are smashed up avocado and banana or my favorite, mayonnaise and coconut oil. Simply place all over slightly damp hair and evenly coat the hair from ends to root. Either leave on for an hour or put a shower cap on and sleep overnight. Your hair will be so nourished. This all helps the growing out process.

Use as few to no chemicals on your scalp for the best results.

Have a great day and weekend! emoticon
