Just for today

Just for today, I'm going to make healthy choices in my life. I'll worry about tomorrow when it becomes today. I can do ANYTHING "just for today." I believe that my history is NOT my destiny. At any given moment I have the power to say this it not how the story is going to end.

I reached my Spark goal in 2011, losing 75 lb. via good nutrition, cardio & strength. My goal for 2014 is to be joyful and live life to the fullest!

Thank you for your comment on my Sparkblog. I know hubby will come around eventually. I just wish he didn't think I was going to get "better."

Thanks for commenting on my Memorial Day blog. The 29th is the actual anniversary of Gary's passing, but the accident took place at his daughter's home on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend! It's hard to believe it's been two years!

Miss talking to you! Hope you've been well, enjoying your grandson, I'm sure! Have you been on lots of hikes lately? Dave had success with his first knee replacement five weeks ago today, and tomorrow we go to the doctor to find out when he can get his left one done! I am ready to head north, but not till he can drive the RV, so it will be a couple months yet. Miss my family back in PA!

Glad Jackson is thriving!

John surprised us with a visit on Saturday -- from Alaska. Goes back Saturday :-( But it's nice while he's here.

HUGS Have a great week.
