Hey sparks friend! Haven't seen you for a while. I am maintaining but it has been by the skin of my teeth the last week. Doesn't get easier but it is better than the alternative, right? How is your plan?
My goal for the week is to run 12 miles: 3 miles X 4 days. Keep me to it! ?
“The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook”
I guess my point of this quote is that dieting is temporary, but eating healthy is forever.
What do you "indulge" in that actually helps you stay on track?
I indulge in dark chocolate (a small square) each evening. 2613 days ago
Ralph Marston: Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.
I've had a super busy weekend with my Grandchildren; Hanna is 4 and Will is 2. We went to the zoo and played here at home. It is wonderful to be with them and I miss them as soon as I say goodbye.
In many ways, I look forward to Monday. It is a chance to get back into my routine and my healthy habits. This week I am building up my running again. I have an 8 K on Saturday and I am running Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and I have water class Monday and Friday. The training is not tough but just time consuming.
This week I am picking up a couple of extra hours at work. I need to get the time when it is available. Although my job is not stressful, I do fatigue more quickly than I did previously. Hmm... maybe I am getting old! 2626 days ago
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest! if you must; but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don't give up, though the pace seems slow; You might succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than It seems to a faint and faltering man, Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup. And he learned too late, when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out; The silver tint of the clouds of doubt; And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems afar; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit; It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit. 2634 days ago
