I CAN TOO do this!

I am starting on my second half of my life. I did lots of things - or did NOT do lots of things - for everyone else but me in the first half of my life...well, no more. I'm motivating myself to be healthier and inspire others. To those who say I cannot do this, I CAN 2 do this!

Think it would be a good idea for now if I only ate measured food...no "guessing" - know I could measure and weigh things but I end up cheating and that's only cheating myself. If I eat protein bars ...

Think it would be a good idea for now if I only ate measured food...no "guessing" - know I could measure and weigh things but I end up cheating and that's only cheating myself. If I eat protein bars and slim fast, along with spinach and other things that I CAN eat unlimited amounts of, then I should be ok. I need to focus on flattering clothes clothes, Y membership to recover range of motion on the knees and loving myself enough to buy training hours for myself instead of wondering if that's selfish. I don't care if it is! I need to be selfish for me, if that's what it's considered. I mean, other people do what makes them happy - like leave or betray - (long story for another time but motivational for now)...and I LOVE the feeling I get after I work out. I wonder if I'll ever be able to get back to the level I was even 70 pounds ago...I just want to be me...and that really is a competitior, an outdoor woman and someone who inspires myself and hopefully others by just the process itself.

Dressed up little creatures
On a dark October night
Run from door to door
Giving everyone a fright.

They come and ring your doorbell
And before they will retreat,
They beg you for some candy
By yelling "trick or treat".

When their bags are full,
They run home to eat their fill.
They taste a bit of everything
And by morning they are ill!

So to keep the youngsters healthy,
I've figured out a deal.
This year instead of candy,
I'll give them all oatmeal!

Wishing you a Happy Halloween!

"You've been given the innate power to shape your life...but you cannot just speak change, you have to LIVE change.
Intent paired with action builds the bridge to success. You can't just want it; you have to do it, live it...BE it!
Success isn't something you have, it's something you DO!”
-Steve Maraboli

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels

Stopping by to wish you a healthy weekend, Spark friend! Remember to keep pushing towards your goals...but if you fall off the wagon, just get right back on again! You can do it! You're worth the effort, you know!
Hugs,
Pixie
