We'll probably be thinking about the good things in our lives and our loved ones. But, we should take a moment to consider how lucky ew are to be here in the first place. In the 21st century, we can experience more in a month than most people throughout history did in a lifetime. Instead of appreciating that fact, we usually just end up wanting to do and have more. We look at what's wrong rather than what's right. This is a perfect time to take a look at our lives and priorities again. We've been given the gift of a lifetime of moments. Accept the gift and prove ourselves worthy.
It's often difficult to realize this, but it's certainly worth contemplating. Just a few short years ago, this site wasn't even available to us, and now, what would we do without it? I often look at my family, and my life, and realize that I wouldn't change a thing, given the opportunity, the result of all my past, the good and bad, are right here to prove that what's past makes what's in the present, worth living for....
My workouts so far this week have been fabulous and encouraging me to get up each morning and do it again. Not sure how things will unfold next week when I have my grandson to babysit on Thursday and Friday, but I'll have to find a way to keep my gym appointments set in stone....
Here's hoping that 2010 is the best year yet!

January 2, 2010 will mark my 4 year anniversary of eating healthy and exercising daily. If someone had asked me in 2006 if I would still be living this healthy lifestyle after 4 years, I probably would have laughed, or at the very least been skeptical of answering yes. Because there was nothing in my past attempts do so, that would lend itself to a belief that I could continue to maintain the efforts needed to stay fit and thin.
I know for certain that of all the tools I utilized to achieve my current state, SP was most important. It amazes me that more people don't jump on the Spark bandwagon because there really isn't a better way of losing weight, and you certainly can't beat the price...
While I have not been as active on the site, I still see myself as a SP member and will continue to remain such forever. I will be making a regular visit to my page daily and follow the methodology more closely as the holidays are now past.
Your smallest actions add up to something big
Everything you do makes a difference. By setting a goal of daily log-ins, I will be able to continue my healthy lifestyle.

My biggest fear over the past three years was what would happen if things got in the way of my rigid schedule, and I now know that I can still continue my healthy lifestyle even with a blip here and there. My recent fall (thanks to my stupid cat) on the stairs has caused me to miss cardio (aka spin class) for over 3 weeks now. I was able to continue to lift weights and that kept me sane, and I walked after a week combined with a little running as well. I'm finally heading back to spin tomorrow, but now I'm beginning a new schedule as I'm babysitting my new grandson two days a week and I'll need to adjust my schedule. But, I now know, that I'm able to keep up with my healthy habits even when things change. I know I won't be derailed and that gives me a great deal of comfort and confidence as I move forward towards my 4th year anniversary....

As I'm sitting here on Thanksgiving eve, I realize how very far I've come in what will soon be 4 years. Life is such an exciting and wonderful thing or me right now and I'm so very grateful for all I have and all I've become. Though I've not been as visible here on SP lately, I have remained true to my SP lessons and continue to live and eat healthy. I've had a few events, good and bad, occur over recent months and realize that no matter what life throws at me, I'm able to handle and grow from all of it and see the strength that I've gained, both physically and mentally during this time.
Though it's not always easy, and I expect it never will be, it continues to be worth every ounce of effort it requires to live a healthy life.
So on this eve of Thanksgiving I thank all at SP who have given all of us in need such a wonderful tool to take us to our goals. I am also unbelievably thankful for all my blessings, the most recent being my 2 month old grandson, Jackson Dylan!
