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

Mindless Eating - Why We Eat More Than We Think by Brian Wansink: interesting research on portion control, visual clues and cultural influence on what and how much we eat

The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan: accessible writing on the sources of our food, organics farming methods and the unfortunate prevalence of processed corn in our diets. "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

The End of Over Eating by David Kessler: describes how people, places and environment influence our eating habits. Also delves into the mysteries of food science and marketing and their influence our preferences for taste and quantity.

"What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are." - Tony Robbins

    Always take another step. If that is to no avail, take another and yet another. One step at
    a time is not too difficult. So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist. For now
    I know one of the greatest principles of success... if I persist long enough, I will win.

    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
