I joined SP at 65 but I had a few birthdays so now I am 72 years old. I live in MS with my husband. I am originally from Arizona and get homesick often even though there are things I love here too. I have trouble staying with a program and I am hoping SP will be the support that will help me reach my goals to become more healthy and happier. March 14, 2009. Yeah!! My first time to get over 10,000 steps in a day. I got some at work , some at Walmart and 6222 of them in 55 mins on the treadmill. Maybe not an every day happening but a goal to add. On Sept 28, 2009 my husband had a confortation with a tree and pretty much lost the arguement. He broke his back, 8 ribs and punctured a lung. He is recovering but it will be a long haul. So my SP plan has changed but I still will check in as time permits. Half of 2013 is gone and I have some work to do. My daughter and SIL are taking a cruise as her retirement gift to herself and I am blessed to be treated for my 70th birthday present to get to go too. I will treat my hubby (his 65th). All is planned for March of 2014 so I only have a few months to get in the best possible shape (pun intended) I can before then. Let it be. :) June 1st is just 2 days away and I am getting a few days of a head start on getting back to SP and making my 70s be more enjoyable. I am grateful I still have my job at the Herb shop and the opportunity to have healthy choices available. July will be a VERY busy month for us with one week with MS grandsons visiting Florida and one week of AZ grands and Greats visiting us in MS. I plan on it all paying off and my heart being full and my pants being loose. :) Well here it is 2016. We will have our 30th anniversary in April (3 s a charm). I am going to make this one at a healthier weight. Might be my last year to have a job outside of home too So really need to establish better exercise habits.=

    Recipe for a Merry Christmas

    To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
    Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
    Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
    Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
    Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
    You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
    Pour love over all in generous measure,
    And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

    ~ Barbara Burrow ~

    This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

    1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

    2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

    3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

    4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

    5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

    6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

    7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

    8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

    9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

    10. Help others when you can.

    Keep going!

    You are SPARKTACULAR!

    You have it in you

    When you feel like quitting, that’s an opportunity to keep going. When you feel like giving up, you have it in you to step forward with renewed energy and to give more.

    Giving up doesn’t accomplish anything, and it doesn’t make you feel any better. It just leaves you with disappointment and regret.

    There’s a way to keep going, and you know it. There’s a way to keep going, and just imagine how great you will feel for choosing persistence.

    If you’re weary, stop for a short while to rest, but don’t give up. Remind yourself of all the good reasons why you’ve chosen to move forward, and then get yourself going again.

    If you wish to be free of the effort, then do what it takes to finish the effort. Make all your work count for something by bringing it to a successful conclusion.

    The next step is right in front of you, and you have it in you to take that step. Keep going, fulfill your best possibilities, and you’ll always be thankful for your choice to do so.
