Counting Down to the New Year.

Make this the best month ever.
Make the 30 days of December work for you.

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something – anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

I've been a Sparker for seven years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 39, 30, 27, 25, and 24. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (3), Chanel Ava (2), Lily Dona (2) and Chloe' Renee (9 months).

I'm happy for all my Sparker Friends, who have been so wonderful to me and to give Nathan encouragement.
My seventh year goal is to EXERCISE daily now that I turned 65 and in my head I'm still 30.

This DONE GIRL will PERSEVERE.

Jibbie, Thanks for your comment on my WooHoo post. It really made it feel like an accomplishment when you said that I had lost 5 lbs. 7 times! I'd never thought about it that way and it really sounds like a lot.

Thanks for the comment. I plan on staying here for the rest of this journey and beyond. I've learned gaining control of my weight will be a life long battle that is never over. Good Luck with your journey as well!

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~
