Upgrades

Saturday, February 05, 2011

When I was young I had the illusion that by the time I was in my 40's I would have all the things in my life that I had ever wanted. I never thought about about the life expectancy of most of the things I thought I wanted. How quickly they become obsolete? How many video game systems have i been through? Computers? Cell phones? I really wanted that Atari Video system. It was so cool. By the time Nintendo came on the scene I was ready for the New and improved gaming system. And now.... geez the games on cell phones and ipads are more advanced than anything I had as a kid. Everything in my life gets Upgraded, exchanged or New and improved. Now it is time for me.

Why did I wait so long to see that I needed a new and improved version of me too. It is so much easier for me to spend time and money to update my childrens wardrobes, a new computer or to spend more money to get a new car or the newest Television technology. Those things change so often that by the time you get used to operating them a new and improved version is available.

Where is the operating manual for the new and improved me? So much of what I need to know I am finding right here on the pages of Sparkpeople. I am finding out exactly what the new me will be capable of by reading the inspiring stories of other members here. Does the New me have a Running app? maybe Zoomba app? The Wii Fit app? I think I may need to find the apps that will work best with the new me. I am already working towards new goals and new dreams and realizing that many things I thought I could not accomplish are right there over the horizon. Waiting for me to try. If you wonder whether you can do it, there is someone here just like you who has and they already figured out the how, when and why. I think that will help me to avoid the pitfalls along the way ((((love the atari analogy))) LOL.

    Thank you, I am almost 2 months into the plan and working towards really figuring out what will work best for me. I am so excited about getting healthier and not just smaller.

    I think that if you are serious you will eventually get the "NEW YOU". Once I got serious I found that losing weight and getting in shape is not as hard as I thought.

For my children and grandchildren

Friday, January 14, 2011

My daughter recently made the comment that she wanted to have children before my mother was too old to enjoy them. She wanted her children to have good quality memories of their great grandmother. I also want to be able to provide them with lifelong memories of their grandmother. I was blessed to enjoy the company of my Great-Grandmother and my Grandmother until I was in adulthood. I want to be the very best Grandmother and Great Grandmother I can be. I need to do that with healthy lifestyle changes. This is my year, 2011, to make the changes in my lifestyle to be healthy.
