Becoming healthier and happier

Improving my health is most important to me. I have a few serious issues I am dealing with, and I'm finding that SparkPeople is the right tool for me to deal with these issues in a healthy way.

One of my favorite sayings: “You don’t have to be perfect in order to be successful.” ~Anonymous In the past, I've been so hard on myself that I don't maintain a program and give up. For over 3 years now, I have been recognizing that I am making progress. When I'm not perfect, I get ...

Since starting with SP in July 2012, I've brought my blood sugar and blood pressure down dramatically, with both numbers being in the healthy range now. I am exercising 6 times a week, for 45-90 minutes at a time. I am eating well for the most part, but really need to get better control of night snacking. I am finally sleeping well. I am feeling better and more hopeful than I have in a long time.

thanks for the encouragment on the yoga.. I have been doing a regular routine for some time at bedtime..but decided to ramp it up a bit. The new DVD is really challenging..I think the gal has a rubber spine!! I might never get as limber as she is ..but yes like you I find it has stretched me a bit . Pilates is my next favorite for centering and balance!

Have a great Thanksgiving..just me and Jim and my son .might have Old John a neighbor but thas it. After having family of 35 to 80 people in the past ..this seems quite anticlimatic..time changes things!!

Hi,

Well Thanksgiving dinner #1 went well with lots of friends and family.
I think I did pretty good staying within my limits eating wise and was even down a pound this morning.

Dinner #2 will be on Thanksgiving. emoticon

Enjoy your time with your family!

I give thanks to God, the Father, for you as I pray for you today. May you know by experience God’s grace, spiritual favor and BLESSing today and every day, having heart peace from God the Eternal Father – that peaceful state of trust in Him to which He calls us; that soul harmony with Him that umpires life choices, heart desires, and questions of the mind. May He settle us with faith to trust Him. Have a BLESSed Thanksgiving, rested in Father. Loving you in Christ, Darlene.

I love the blank page on the newsletter with your email message. I may write a blog post determining what is on the mysterious sixth page. (This is what I do instead of my real work, of course.)
