As a whole 2011 was a good one. Worst part was my dear Mom in law Genie passed, 88 years young, she lived a very full life and was not sick until the end. My dog Sadie, who was about 13 also passed, such a dear and faithful companion to our family. Loss is never easy, but we can't let it stop us, we must go on and live in the spirit of the loved one we were so generously allowed to spend time with. Life is to be lived and we must do so, no matter what. You can't let illness stop you either, as a 3x breast cancer survivor, I keep on going in as a healthy a manner as I know how too. Spark People has been instrumental in me surviving cancer and improving my health. I did really well this year on my exercise/fitness plan, working out regularly on the elliptical and stationary bike. I also work out with 3lb weights and it has been an asset to my overall well being. I feel really good and have improved stamina. I need some improvement in my healthy eating and water consumption, a new year will help me to get on track again. I have had some difficulties keeping up with my exercise plan this last month, maybe my new puppy has made that a little harder than usual. As the new year begins, I make a commitment to myself and plan on following through with everything I need to do to make 2012 an extraordinary year!
Here's to me!
