I borrowed this from RONDINI2's page because it was too good to pass up.
I was afraid enough ppl might not see it, so I wanted to give everyone another chance:

In the summer challenge i lost about 10 pounds. My daughter said she could see a difference. Comments like that from family and friend add fuel to my fire.
Now that the weather will be cooling off, I hope to do some walking in my pasture. We have coyotes that visit my son next door, he has a stream that runs through his yard. So, I am taking a can of Hornet Spray with me - it can shoot pretty far off.
If you want to know what a big bundle a ten pound loss is, go and buy you a ten pound sack of sugar and carry it around. Pick it up every time you get up to go to the bathroom. It can get heavy fast.
I'm thinking about wrapping a ten pound sack of sugar in a plastic bag, putting it in a backpack, and wearing it while I walk. It might be a good incentive.
Let's get this party started, Sapphire Beauties.

The earth didn't move, but the scale did. I'm out of the 70's and into the 60's, at one point i even saw the 50's but just barely.
not having sweets in the house is my big thing.
doing morning bed yoga helps me feel better all day
doing yoga at the kitchen sink is amazing - kinda Sun Salutation
riding my stat bike gives me such a good feeling of accomplishment -even 20 min.
i epublished a book!!! getting ready this week to publish book 2!!!!!
I love my Sapphire Team and feel like I let them down if I am not at least trying!!!
Looking forward to the next challenge. I'm hoping for the 50's. Send me good vibes. Yeah!!!

Never Quit Pledge
Tuesday, August 12, 2012
Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

I've never been one to keep up with the days that I've STAYED ON MY PLAN b/c to me it meant DAYS I'VE BEEN PERFECT.
well, who in the world is perfect?
so, instead I'm counting them as DAYS I STAYED ON MY PLAN b/c my plan is to SHOW UP and DO THE BEST I CAN.
as my friend says who is in AA, you don't shoot for perfection, you shoot for PROGRESS. and am I progressing? Yes!!!
Some days I accomplish more of what I planned to do and some days not so much. But the really AMAZING thing is, I'm not giving up. My Sapphire BL Team has taught me that.
Never give up. It's like the person who chisels the block of marble. He doesn't make a tap or two and waalaa, the perfect statue comes forth. He works for months or even years...chipping away.
And I learn from him and keep chipping away. And today i colored in my little circle smiley faces with yellow, not black. If I do even ONE thing toward my goal, I let myself count that day.
So, everyone, --raising my glass - Let's Count the Day. Color your circle or smiley face YELLOW. Throw away that black crayon!!!

There's no understand where my motivation goes when it decides to take a walk.
But. . . I think it has made a full circle and is back with me again to begin this Summer Challenge.
Lord knows that I KNOW WHAT TO DO.
But without that little spark of get up and go...it ain't gonna happen.
Hey....maybe that's where SPARK TOOK ITS NAME! All it takes is a SPARK of SOMETHING - maybe Motivation - Yeah!!!!
*I joined Spark 2 years ago when I friend told me about it.
*I do believe I am committed 100% to this Summer Challenge - and I have not been able to say that for the past 3 challenges - but the Sapphires said to hang in there and I have.
*My expectations are sturdy but reasonable - eat healthy, exercise, drink water, help out my Team, journal, track food... just the usuals - that work if you work 'em.
Here's to Workin' 'Em. (glass held high in a toast!)
