But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Phil. 3:13b-14

The fight of 2014:
Last year was a rough year filled with changes, stress, and transitions. The result was going back to undesirable eating patterns, losing motivation to WO, and putting on over 30#. That puts my current weight close to what it was when I first started SP. Now is the time to learn from the experience, set all the failure aside, and fight to press forward.

✿ Friday's thought ✿

What did you do today to bring you one step closer to your goal?

It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. When you implement that effort into your life…every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs. Every step you take must move you toward your goals. Keep going. Remember why you started. You can do it.

WHO you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone.
WHAT lies ahead will always be a mystery. Do not be afraid to explore.
WHEN life pushes you over, you push back harder.
WHERE there are choices to make, make the one you won’t regret.
WHY things happen will never be certain. Take it in stride and move forward.

Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran

When you see someone in a uniform, Someone who serves us all, Doing military duty, Answering their country’s call, Take a moment to thank them For protecting what you hold dear; Tell them you are proud of them; Make it very clear. Just tap them on the shoulder, Give a smile, and say, "Thanks for what you’re doing to keep us safe in the USA!
