sunsetinaz, a unique beauty
At the end of chemo - clean bill of health!
Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my spouse and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.
Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".
After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)
I just rewrote my goals, modifying my program to be reasonable and achievable. The hardest part is realizing I am talking changing daily, little by little so that at some point, the changes aren't changes anymore - it is simply the way I live.
In the process, I get to meet a lot of fantastic people (yes, I am talking about you!), get healthy, and have fun.
Who knew I would be so blessed?!
1 - Be healthier at the end of this year than I was last year
2 - Manage my tendancies - buying, cluttering, hoarding, and procrastination
4 - Simplify my life
5 - Numb out less; Live more
6 - Have fun
A- Eat a good breakfast and dinner plus 2 healthy snacks
B- Exercise or yoga 4 to 5 times weekly
C- Average 6+ hours of sleep
D- Quit buying unnecessary stuff
E- Daily decluttering
F- Actively limit TV and computer time
G- Be active, not passive
Faith in Purpose,
Diverse Interests, Tolerance,
The Ability to Appreciate, and the Awareness:
We Are All Works in Progress

I have missed some opportunities and screwed up others. I have my share of regrets and sad edges around a relationship or two. I’ve disappointed my family, friends and even more often myself. I have complained, whined, and been noisy, and then other times been silent when I should have spoken up. But tonight I will go to sleep with a smile knowing that tomorrow is right around the corner and another chance to get it right will be waiting for me.

You have what you need to succeed. Even as stress swirls around you, there is a place within you that is free of self-doubt and full of strength.
A place of calm and confidence, where purpose and passion come together.
Deep down, you know the truth: You've got what it takes!

It's time you saw the beauty in you. It has always been there, and it always will be, because true beauty isn't something you wear, or something that wears off. It's not something that you can create, or something you can copy or fake. It's something that's a part of you - truly beautiful you!
