The best is yet to come!

I am in my fifties and have decided I can no longer wait to get healthy, so I am using SparkPeople as a way to create and maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle. I am interested in cooking, especially learning more vegetarian recipes. Yoga is another interest, I think it is great for both physical and mental health. I hope everyone finds the support & encouragement they need, and I am grateful for this opportunity to join the SparkPeople community.

My Goals:
I plan on aging not only gracefully, but in great health!
Becoming fit, flexible and firm is my goal, as well as achieving balance (both literally and figuratively!).

My Program:
I am using SparkPeople for tracking and motivation - working on cleaner, healthier eating both at home and on the road, and simply moving more often, working up to more structured exercise.

Personal Information:
I am a recent addition to the Pacific NW, after living most of my life in the Midwest. I travel a great deal for work and have struggled in the past with weight and health issues. I am committed to change now and am so very grateful for the support and advice available through SparkPeople.

Other Information:
"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again."

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...

emoticon emoticon Because you ARE. emoticon emoticon

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx

Lisa--I added you as a friend too. Your photo's are beautiful. One of my hobbies is dabbling in photography too. But sadly my camera died an couple of months ago, and I am not working now and don't have the money to replace it. So I will enjoy your beautiful photo's.
Good luck on your journey to a healthier you, and let me know if I can help in any way. emoticon
