ABILITY IS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF DOING. MOTIVATION DETERMINES WHAT YOU DO. ATTITUDE DETERMINES HOW WELL YOU DO IT ~ Lou Holtz
Hi! I am a "40 something" mom in Ottawa Canada (and this is my first "page" of any kind - this is also my first attempt at losing weight and exercising...I have my fingers (and toes!) crossed).
I just saw this in a newsletter from my son's school...
PARABLE OF THE WOLVES
A chief was teaching his grandson about life...
"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
"One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
"This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
"Which wolf will win?"
The old chief simply replied,
"The one you feed."
GRANT ME THE SERENITY TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE
THE COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN
THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
"If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it." Maya Angelou
My first goal is to lose 10 lbs by March 20...perhaps another 5 or 10 after that(?).
NEW GOAL: maintain my weight between 130 and 135 from now until October 19
ORIGINAL: Eat less, move more. I am trying to stay under 1500 calories a day, to do cardio 3-4 times per week, and strength training 2-3 times per week.
NOW: +/-1700 calories per day; same cardio/strength.
I am a sort of stay at home mom (I work from home)!
