WHO DO I WANT TO BE?

The mom who is in shape at 50 and an inspiration to her daughter.

My inspirations:
1) Have my original engagement and wedding bands fit easily again.
2) Be able to shop in the "misses" side of the store again.
3) To have to buy a new "skinny" wardrobe.
4) To feel comfortable having my picture taken again.

4) To feel comfortable having my picture taken again.

I am a 49 year-old mom of a six-year-old, strong-willed dynamo. I have made specific changes over the past two years to be who I want to be: I'm working part-time and have opened my art therapy practice. I have rejoined the gym. I have done the work to be ready to change.

Now is my time!

Just stopping by to say hello and to encourage you to keep moving towards your goals, Sparkfriend! Even baby steps add up if you take enough of them...and of course, you know you're worth the effort, right? I'm rooting for you!

"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."
-Karen Salmansohn

"Today is a new day. It's a day you have never seen before and will never see again.
Stop telling yourself the 'same crap, different day' lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you?
Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day, you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go.”
-Steve Maraboli

“When was the last time you woke up and realized that today could be the best day of your life? Participate in your dreams today.
There are unlimited opportunities available with this new day. Take action on those wonderful dreams you've had in your mind for so long.
Remember, success is something you experience when you act accordingly. Success is not something you HAVE, it’s something you DO.”

Roses are red, yoga is great,
Who needs a Valentine when I can bench my own weight?
Violets are blue, and peanut butter is heaven,
I'll save you a kiss after rep number seven.
Bananas are yellow, and yogurt is Greek,
Squats are gonna be the only thing to make my knees weak.
Oatmeal is perfect, and veggies are divine,
The dream to be strong is what I'm making mine!

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away.
It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”
-Unknown

I hope February is off to a healthy start for you, Spark friend! Remember to be your own Valentine! Keep your self talk positive, and love yourself for who you are now, not ten or however many pounds from now. You're worth it!
Hugs,
Pixie
