    HA! My great grandmother was Abe Lincoln's cousin( who knows how many generations behind) but somebody sent her a contract one time wanting to put her name in a book about Abe Lincoln's genealogy. Thanks for the goodie, and happy new year to you. How's school BTW?

    Hustle, huh? Does that mean that Lincoln invented disco?

Thanks for sharing the quote. Most of my life I have settled for what came my way--if that was what the universe decided to send me, I should be satisfied with it. I'm starting to question that belief, though.

Glad your holiday season is going well. Hope it continues for a long, long while!

FAV QUOTES TO START 2011. DO YOU HAVE ONE TO SHARE?

Sunday, December 26, 2010

THESE ARE MY FAV MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES FOR 2011:

We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.
-Stephen Hawking

No one can deny you or grant you anything. It all comes to you by virtue of your vibration.
--- Abraham

"Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell".
~Author Unknown~

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."
***Thomas A. Edison***

"We must be the change we want to see.".
.~Mahatma Gandhi~


"Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life."
****Tony Robbins****

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. - Winston Churchill


You can't lose weight without exercise. But I've got a philosophy about exercise. I don't think you should punish your legs for something your mouth did. Drag your lips around the block once or twice.
~ Gwen Owen

There's so much pressure to see quick results that it's easy to forget the point of this, which is quite frankly to save your life. Don't ignore increases in strength and overall feeling of health and well-being. Those are goals too. - Dr. John P. Hussman


Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but to be coaxed downstairs a step at a time. - Mark Twain


When you get to a plateau, think of it as landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of rehearsal for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world. - Laura's Weight Loss Journey

    At first, I thought this was too simple of a quote and not nearly profound enough to be a mantra for the year. But it's stuck in my head now and I'm changing my mind.

"Go big or go home. Because it's true. What do you have to lose?"
-- Eliza Dushku

MY SAPPHIRE SPARK BUDDY

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

HEY ALL,

MY SPARK BUDDY IS PAT. PAT AND I BOTH LIVE IN ALABAMA. WE WERE BOTH IN THE MILITARY AND WE BOTH LOVE YOUTUBE AND NCIS.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND BEGAN THEIR WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM TOGETHER. HE COOKS AND SHE PREPS. ISN'T THAT A GREAT COMBINATION? PAT, HER HUSBAND, AND HER SON ARE ALL ARMY VETERANS.

SHE TRIES REALLY HARD TO GET IN 10,000 STEPS PER DAY. SHE ALSO LIKES WATER EXERCISING AND HAS NAMED HER TRUSTY TREADMILL "FREDDY". SHE HAS BUDDIES THAT SHE WALKS WITH REGULARLY. SHE IS PROUD TO HAVE LOST OVER 40 POUNDS SINCE BEING ON SPARK.

emoticon

WHEN PAT FOUND OUT THAT I HAD A BAD WEEK WHEN I FELL OF THE WAGON, SHE SAID, "THAT WAGON NEEDS SEATBELTS". I AGREE.

HAVE A GREAT DAY SPARK BEAUTIES!

    I really, really like the imagery of "seatbelts" on the wagon.

I'll remember that!

And yes - get back on the wagon (he he)
