the waiting game

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Never give up on something you really want. It's difficult to wait, but more difficult to regret. Getting to the weight and fitness level you want to be at may take a long time, but every day worked at it brings you that much closer to that goal and further from not realizing that dream.

What are you doing to make yourself?

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I read that on the motivational quotes page. This reaches out to me in so many ways....what AM I doing to make myself? So many dreams have lain unfulfilled because I haven't done anything to make myself.

    Yes, we live in such a victim-mentality society: thus and such happened to me, and so I over-eat, or I don't exercise. We need to be pro-active. Not deciding is deciding not to do something. We are responsible for our choices.
May you be blessed as you learn to make healthy choices.

interesting new study

Monday, February 25, 2013

HEALTH BENEFITS OF BEING OVERWEIGHT A new report suggests that being overweight is not as harmful as is commonly believed, and actually confers some surprising benefits.

Being five to ten pounds overweight could protect people from ailments ranging from tuberculosis to Alzheimer's disease, research indicates. Those carrying 15 to 25 extra pounds are better able to recover from adverse conditions such as emphysema, pneumonia, and various injuries and infections, states the report.

Thirty to forty pounds of flab could help fend off breast, kidney, pancreatic, prostate, and colon cancer. And an extra fifty pounds on the scale may improve eyesight, reverse baldness, cure the common cold, and reduce global warming.

In general, the report concludes, overweight people are happier, more successful in business, smarter, and friendlier.

The study was funded by a research grant from McDonald's, Burger King, Jack in the Box, Taco Bell, Domino's Pizza, Starbucks, Haagen Dazs, Sara Lee, and Krispy Kreme.

    Hmmm. Judging by the sponsors, I'd be inclined to doubt the validity of the study.

the smile that keeps giving back :)

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I'm amazed at what a little smile can do. I made the vow yesterday to smile...it made me so much happier, and I did a really good job of not WAY overdoing it when I went out to dinner with family last night.

And, when I checked my page today, I saw all the smiles I got back. They all reinforced that feeling of happiness and that I did right. And thanks for the comments, smiles, and the poem yesterday!

Keep passing along the happiness! emoticon

    Smiling doesn't just improve your mood and that of those around you - it releases all kinds of tension in your face. And that reduces wrinkle formation! emoticon

    A Smile Author Unknown

A smile costs nothing, but gives much-
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it usually lasts forever. 
None are so rich that can get along without it-
And none are so poor but that can be made rich by it.

It enriches those who receive, without making poor those who give-
It creates sunshine in the home, 
Fosters good will in business, 
And is the best antidote for trouble-
And yet it cannot be begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is of no value
Unless it is given away.

Some people are too busy to give you a smile-
Give them one of yours-
For the good Lord knows that no one needs a smile so badly
As he or she who has no more smiles left to give.
