I am newly retired but keeping busy with my dog and crafts. I want to ride my bicycle more and travel, and would love to lose about 50 pounds, which was a lot easier when I was younger!!
My goal is to be as healthy as possible, lose weight along the way, and keep active.
I am keeping track of my caloric intake, walk every day and also do either free weights, kettlebell, or Total Gym workouts a few times a week. I try to ride my bike 2-3 times a week as well.
I am a retired police records clerk, formerly a 911 operator having served 28 years. Now it's time for me! I walk my dog everyday, ride my bicycle whenever I can, and crochet for craft fairs and charity. If anyone needs a chemo hat, let me know as I have a lot of practice making them!

“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's
greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending
commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”
Just stopping by from the Healthy Holidays team to wish you a great day! Stay committed to making progress towards your goals, even with all the temptations that Christmas brings. You are worth your best effort! I'm here if you need support.

“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra.
In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
Just stopping by from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team to encourage you to make the most of today! Keep doing your best, one day at a time, to make progress towards your goals. Have a heatlhy week!
There was once a great czar in Russia named Rudolph the Red. He stood looking out the windows of is palace one day while his wife, the Czarina Katerina, sat nearby knitting. He turned to her and said, "Look my dear, it has begun to rain!" Without even looking up from her knitting she replied, "It's too cold to rain. It must be sleeting." The Czar shook his head and said, "I am the Czar of all the Russias, and Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
TGIF Spark friend! I hope you've been having a healthy week and that you're ready for a Spark-o-licious weekend! Keep doing your best to make progress each day, because you are really worth the effort! See you on the Healthy Holidays Challenge team!

"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."
Just stopping by from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team to encourage you to take those steps forward towards your goals. Even baby steps will get you closer as long as you keep going. Never forget that you are always worth the effort! Have a great day!
I made myself a snowball,
As perfect as could be,
I thought I'd keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas,
And a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away,
But first - it wet the bed!

“You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. It's possible to treat yourself with outrageous kindness beginning today.
Compulsive eating is only the symptom; believing that you are not worth your own love is the problem.
Go for the love. You will never be sorry.”
TGIF from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team! I hope your week has been a good one. Did you do your best to make progress? You are worth the effort, you know. Be sure to treat yourself with "outrageous kindness" today and every day. You are awesome!
