Plenty of Opportunities

One of my favorite quotes is "The good thing about a chronic problem is you have lots of opportunities to fix it." I've had chronic problems with weight most of my life, but after working hard to fix this for 18 months, I am now in maintenance. Or as I prefer to call it, weight management. Staying at a healthy weight has historically been a very hard thing for me to do, so the opportunities continue. :-)

Staying in my calorie range (whatever that turns out to be). I don't follow any plan (don't feel like following rules but am slowly trying to eat healthier). I aim for at least 2000 calories burned in exercise per week.

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
-Og Mandino

emoticon Here's to a week of good planning: workouts, eating, journaling, fun, success and health my friend.

Now let's take it one day, one meal, one exercise at a time and have a great week!

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
-Tom Venuto

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."
-Rae Smith
