You can't out-train a bad diet

Cultivate optimism and let it drive you forward.

Health is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

We can't control the waves, but we can learn to surf

Turn a setback into a comeback

Success requires backbone, not wishbone

We can do anything for one day. Let us forget yesterday with its mistakes and
failures. Let us not waste our time thinking of tomorrow’s burdens. For one
day let us be happy. For one day let us not hurry, worry, fume, or fuss. Let us be
kind, be cheerful, find no fault, and live our best... today.
~Rev. Paul Osumi

Staying active shouldn't be a burden, it's a privilege. If you are blessed with enough
strength to walk, run or jump, then by all means, get moving. Stay active, fill your
summer with the colors of the rainbow and TOGETHER we will be victorious! emoticon

Never be afraid or hesitant to step off the accepted path and head off
in your own direction, if your heart says it's right for you. Believe
that you will ultimately succeed at whatever you do, and never
forget the value of Persistence, Discipline, and Determination. You are
meant to be whatever you dream of becoming.
-Edmund O'Neill emoticon
