Life is kinda like a mountain trail, you can look at it or you can hike it, either way it is up to you to make the choice.

Choosing a route, a routine, an eating program that will support a healthy life, but also an enjoyable one. A life with NO chocolate would not be great..so I will have some. A life without bread..one of my great weaknesses, would not be fun. .. so I will have some!
The bottom line is SOME..not ALL and within reason!

I believe after floating my boat thru several trials and errors in both eating programs and exercise insanities..that moderation is indeed the key. CI/CO...is still the best way to go! Thus said it is up to me to moderate what goes in and what effort goes out!

Success as they say rests in your hands. But you must follow the path to find it. So easy to fail...give up and just say..Thas how it is.

Not This Time..Not Me...This time I believe in ME..

    Hope you got your ducklets. I'm going today to the Fountain store to see if they have any. This weather isn't great to transport them.

    If you know of anyone who has mini goats please let me know. Earl, our whether, has become a pet. He's a lonely 1/2 mini who needs a couple companions.

    Stay warm! emoticon

    Katie, the ZenFitness30 challenge is one of the many 30-day challenges on SparkPeople. You can get to them by clicking on Community and then on Challenge Central. I've done several of them in the past few months. They aren't hugely challenging but they certainly offer some good tips and information.
    Check them out, girl! Especially if you just want a little boost in incentive.
    P.S. Thanks for the Veggies! I think my next 30 day challenge may be one of the food ones.

    I'm going to take your advice, Katie, because there is happiness to be found in little things. Sometimes happiness is found in quiet moments instead of a fireworks display.

    I'm sorry about your husband. My father had Alzheimer's for years and my mother just tried to adjust in the changes in him and she is my hero for the way she was able to accept him throughout all the changes. It is hard and I know you need to pull back and just do the things together that you can.
