A few years ago, we eliminated our weekly (sometimes twice weekly) take out meals. Often we would be so exhausted when we came home from work, that we and would grab take out because it seemed easier. Now we rarely get takeout, instead, I plan our weekly dinners. Our dinners are not ...
I love SparkPeople! I learned about sparkpeople from colleagues and thought I would check it out. That was a year and a half ago. I have found many SP friends who are supportive and encouraging.

A few years ago, we eliminated our weekly (sometimes twice weekly) take out meals. Often we would be so exhausted when we came home from work, that we and would grab take out because it seemed easier. Now we rarely get takeout, instead, I plan our weekly dinners. Our dinners are not necessarily complicated, but they are healthy and a much better choice than takeout.

2013 Summer 5% Challenge Commitment:
-Exercise plan: work out 5-6 days per week, including swimming, yoga, running & DVD's (Jillian)
-meal plan (in advance)
-track calories on SP
-check in on the team page daily

"Here's to US. Here's to ordering a salad when you really wanted a burger. Here's to making an ass out of yourself in combat cardio class. Here's to drinking more water than you thought was humanly possible. Here's to 5 more minutes on the elliptical. Here's to working out twice as much as your skinny friend. Here's to saying goodbye to the old you & falling in love with the new, improved, healthier you, the YOU that you really are, the YOU that you are becoming. Here's to looking in the mirror or jumping on the scale & seeing no changes BUT putting on your Nike's & hitting the gym anyways. Here's to carrots & shin splints & sweatshirts & perseverance & sore muscles & stinky socks & 7am Yoga classes & falling down & getting back up - - -And here's to doing it all over again tomorrow."
- - Unknown - -


Never stop pushing for those BIG dreams, Friend!!
Better health & happiness is within your reach!
Never give up on YOU!! You're worth the fight!!!

Stay Positive, Change IS Coming,

Jes

"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they are going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them ALL the care, kindness & understanding you can muster & do it with no thought of ANY reward. Your life will NEVER be the same again."

Sweetheart,

Always remember that a few nice words or one thoughtful gesture can turn around someone's ENTIRE day!!! Every act of kindness, no matter how small, has a ripple effect - - Dare to be the reason someone smiles today:) :) :)

Hugs,

Jes
