What you do today will affect you for the rest of your life...

I have been on this (getting healthy) journey for a while now. And in that time I've realized a few things:

~ A failure doesn't mean you are one. Stop wallowing around in it. Get up and start over NOW. If you're not careful you'll look back a year from now (or more) and realize how much further away from your goals you have slipped. Time just makes it harder. Today is the day. Just suck it up and get on with it.

~ Being healthy is hard. Being fat is hard. ...

Just suck it up and get on with it.

~ Being healthy is hard. Being fat is hard. Choose your hard. (This is adapted from a quote I heard, but it is so true.)

~ Life is about this one choice you have right now. These little choices you make to evolve yourself into a healthier, fitter person WILL add up! Keep on doing them even when you can't see that they're making a difference. Believe me, they are.

~ Write down your goals. Break them down into little chunks. And then keep.after.them. Look at them every day. Make a plan. Plan your meals. Plan your fitness time. Set it in stone and hold yourself accountable. Other things will come up sometimes, and that's ok too. Just don't let yourself quit.

~ I'm not going to lie to you. It's hard. It's really, really hard to persevere. But aren't you worth it? Isn't your health worth the fight? You ARE worth it. But if you don't believe that yourself you'll never succeed. You need to do this for YOU.

~ SparkPeople friends are some of the best supporters out there. Get to know a few. Invest some time in them. Hold yourself accountable to them. They'll help you on the way.

2) Get fit and healthy

Short Term Goals:
1) Lose the next 5% of my body weight
2) Exercise at least 4 days a week

4) Watch the portions!!

My Program:
I try to eat several small meals a day and drink loads of water (at least 8-10 glasses). I'm eating a lot less junk now, and more whole grains, fruits and veggies. Moderation and portion control are necessary!

Personal Information:
I'm 37 and live in Southwest Arkansas. I've been married to my sweetie for 9 years. We are proud parents to two beautiful, healthy children and I adore being able to stay home full time with them.

I LOVE to read (just about anything I can get my hands on) and I really enjoy watching movies (when I can find the time)! I'm always in the middle of some craft or project (knitting, painting, drawing, cross stitching, genealogy, etc).

"There is INSIDE of YOU
ALL of the potential to be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY to do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Gorgeous,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes
