I want to get fit!

I have been involved in this current stint on Spark People since August 2010 and it has been helping considerably. I am getting closer to my goal weight although I am going to have to move things up a notch to shift this last bit! I reckon I have been getting too good at maintaining my weight for a bit too long now!

Before I post a challenge, we have to get some members back. At least that would be nice!!! Now that fall is right around the corner, and that is a change from the heated summer, why not change with the flow of the seasons!! We probably need to make it to little goals and it must be do-able, fit in our busy schedules, and make us think positive for our next goal. Ususally we focus on weightloss. Many of us are stuck, or haven't gone anywhere. There HAS to be a reason for this seesawing, and what I have come up with that it starts with the mind. With that said, I think we should start a "mind" change to get ready. Most of us, including myself, just seem to be negative in someway, some more than others, and this is a BIG problem for a healthy life style. We have to feel POSITIVE in order for us to be healthy. So, here's our challenge:

1. Meditate at least once per day. (See "JUST POST HERE" if you are unsure about meditation.
2. Exercise everday, even if it's for a few minutes because we all have idle time throughout the day.
3. Whatever you do post in JUST POST HERE!
4. We will build from here after 2 weeks...let's get POSITIVE!

Animals can be great at causing injury, I actually have a chunk taken out my left ear from when my cat ran over my head while I was laying on the sofa, she split my ear right open at the top on the cartelidge bit.
