The world wasn't formed in a day, and neither were we. Set small goals and build upon them....

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon

To enjoy the glow of good health, you must exercise...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon

I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things...

It doesn't matter how slowly that you Go...

As long as you don't Stop...

emoticon Go Go Go Go....

Void Temptations... They are every where... *Stay Strong*

Sometimes Bad Days are there to remind us... that we have Good Ones to Look Forward to...

A Good Affirmation or Saying is this...

I will not Starve this... but I will work hard for this...

It may take longer doing it... the healthy and right way...

But it will last longer this way...

It will be Better and I will Be Happy...

Happy & Beautiful... oxox
