10-30-14 I kept thinking that my birthday would be a new start for me this year...but sadly ...no. It will be yet another end. Another failure. I am too tired to keep fighting.

SP and all of my friends and team mates have been AWESOME! I love all of you and look forward to the time I "spend with you" in the evenings. But it has become too much of a hassle here at home. I thought I could fight for myself and make it work....but my husband is more tenacious than I am and I ...

SP and all of my friends and team mates have been AWESOME! I love all of you and look forward to the time I "spend with you" in the evenings. But it has become too much of a hassle here at home. I thought I could fight for myself and make it work....but my husband is more tenacious than I am and I am tired of the constant struggle for time and resources. You guys are the positive light at the end of my daily tunnel, I will miss you very much.


9-1-14 I have to find a way to make my health a priority. I have to find the time to exercise, I have to find a way to eat well. Life will throw me changes, challenges, and curves. I must rise up, meet them with grace, and conquer them. Today I begin again. Today I re-commit to being the best me I can be. Today I reaffirm that I am worth it.

4/2014 I have struggled with weight and motivation issues for years. I always felt that making healthier choices was too hard. But the truth is it is no harder than living with my bad decisions: Never happy with the ways clothes fit, avoiding special occasions and photos, not being able to enjoy outdoor activities with friends and family...always being sad and embarrassed.

After years of abusing my health, my body finally cried "uncle". Now I MUST get my act together. I consider this a fresh start. I am ready to take steps toward my long term goals. I will progress as best I can as my body continues to recover and grows stronger each day.

Every journey begins with the first step. The key to success is consistently taking steps toward my objective. No matter how slow I go, or how long it takes, I will be better for the effort.

I can not be expected to change a lifetime of bad habits overnight. I will fall down, but I will not stay down. Support and encouragement will pick me up, accountability will keep me moving forward.

Alright, I give up. You've described so many things in your environment, e.g., tarantulas and roadrunners, that don't exist in my part of the world that I can only guess you're somewhere Texasy. An arid climate, at any rate. Yes?
