My hubby and I in San Diego
My handsome son graduating from high school
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I have four children and a wonderful husband but at a point in my life where I need to focus on me. I have put work and family ahead of my health for a number of years and now I want to get healthy-fit and toned and in the best shape of my life!!!
To feel better inside and out! To be healthy, fit and toned.
I am tracking my diet and exercise every day. I am also trying to prepare meals ahead of time so that I am not tempted by food that could derail me. I am exercising a minimum of 30 min every day as well.

"But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit , and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now if you know what you're worth , then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, an not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that aint't you. You're better than that! -from Rocky Balboa
I can't imagine a person becoming a success who doesn't give this game of life everything he's got." -- Walter Cronkite
If you can keep your head when all around you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, then the world is yours and all that's in it." -- Rudyard Kipling

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are!

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
Its up to you to make your goals and dreams a reality, Sparkfriend! Take responsibility, and do your best each day to make progress. You are totally worth the effort, you know!
I hope your week has been great so far!

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy, happy week, Spark friend! Keep your goals in mind and keep pushing yourself every day to get closer. It isn't easy, but never forget that you are worth the effort!

â€śThe 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.â€ť
-John C. Maxwell
Get ready for a healthy week, Sparkfriend! You know what you want, and you know what you need to do in order to make it happen...so just do it! Push yourself, even if you don't feel like it...because you really are worth the effort!

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
Hi Sparkfriend, I hope you're having a fun and healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind, and keep doing your best to make progress towards reaching them. Never forget that you are always worth your very best effort!
