My goal is to lose at least 15# and incorporate some physical activity into my days to improve my health. I am having some issues with my blood sugar spiking at night and loosing the weight hopefully will turn that around.. I am in this committment for life. To break the diet coke habit. Drink WATER!!!!
Tracking food, water, and fitness. I know from past experience tracking works. Sharing SparkPeople with my friends and coworkers.
I am married to my best friend and have two grown boys and a precious daughter-in-law. My husband and I attend First Baptist Church. I love the Lord and my church. I work full time as a Insurance and Billing Clerk at a local Physician's office and I have a commercial cleaning business that I do in the evenings and weekends. I live in Oklahoma.
I enjoy anything to do with the computer, sewing, reading, DIY house remodling, and anything I can do with my family.
“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it. Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing. People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful." -Michael Josephson
Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"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
"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things." ~Jo Coudert
I hope you're having a good weekend so far, Sparkfriend! I just wanted to stop by and share a couple of great quotes with you. Keep pushing to reach your goals, one day at a time. Always believe that you are worth your absolute best effort...because you are! Hugs, Pixie
"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life. Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now." -Robert White
Thank you for commenting on my blog, "Running Start." I hope you're having a healthy weekend!
"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -" ~ St. Francis de Sales
"The past doesn't define you, your present does. It's okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the "now," but don't dwell on past mistakes. Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen." -Jillian Michaels
