Well, yesterdays bonus buddy challenge was to blog about the new buddy challenge... and came home from work with full intent on doing it, to find no internet....uhg. talk about As for the buddy challenge (in the Losing And Playing team), i will say, it is going to be a challenge...but i think not too overwhelming but enough to keep us interested and to actually challenge us. What a great way to kick off the year also...getting us focused and hopefully, ready to hit the rest of the year with gusto. Now...just hoping the internet comes back soon :)


What I'm Leaving Behind

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Wow...where to start.

    Yes, Kitty that's is a fabulous plan for 2010. Out with the bad in with the new and improved. We can do it this year. I can feel it.

With all that you have had to deal with this past year, to me you are still an amazing Team Leader! You keep me going, you motivate me. I wish you all the best for 2010! May you have success in reaching your goals, may your health improve and may prosperity find your doorstep and stay awhile.

Happy New Year to the best Team Leader! emoticon

    I've been catching up on SP and have read quite a few blogs in which Sparkers are anxious to put 2009 behind them. It hasn't been a very progressive or kind year for me either, and I look forward to making 2010 a better year with you and other Spark friends.

Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm, my friend. Let's go!

    I'm right there with yah JoDee! Funks unfortunately are a part of a lot of our lives - they happen and we just have to get through them. Luv your honesty in this post and am glad you're on the other side of the funk.

Here's some wise words from SP:

"A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson is telling:

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

Move on with your life. Keep reaching for your goals and you will achieve them. One minor setback is nothing if you really want something and are willing to work for it.

Yesterday is gone - today moving forward is what counts. We CAN and WILL do this!! Best Wishes as we get back into the game!!!

Thanks for the chuckle, too.

Quote For The Week

Saturday, October 17, 2009

Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
- George Washington Carver

I just got this in one of my emails today...and wow...does it hit home... i have gained 4 lbs over the last couple house has gone down hill...and my quitting smoking...yea... right...and the money problems keep escalating... i can give you a hundred excuses for each of these... and valid ones at that...but the fact of the matter is happens... and the only way it's going to change is if i change it...and stop allowing those excuses to stand in my way... work is always going to be part crazy part kids will always be my kids...i will never have enough time nor energy... and the bills...will always be there... a good thing...cause...that means i have the things we need...a roof over our heads... electric...heat...and food... so...instead of using these valid excuses stop me...i'm going to work through them...and with them... wohoo!!! i think i'm ready!!!

    I knew something was going on. Take one day at a time and tackle one problem at a time. Just like FlyLady. Break everything down in small pieces. I know beinga sigle mom can be really overwhelming. I remember people asking me how I did it with 3 kids and working full time. You just do it, what's the alternative! You can do this!

    Wow!I know God sent me here for a reason. Like my computer, I need a good Reebooting every once in awhile to and get back on the straight and narrow. I too have been in a slump lately. Total Knee Replacement has been extremely painful. It is the last thing I need to do is gain weight I have lost. It is such a selfloathing feeling to go on a week long eating binge because the pain just gets to me so bad, and I just lose all self control. But reading what you guys are going through and doing something about it, gives me so much ecouragement to begin a fresh beginning. Good luck to all and GodSpeed. Carlin emoticon emoticon

    Excuses are only that ... excuses. Reasons are better ... so find reasons to kick those excuses to the curb. Everyone has hills and mountains to climb and we will all climb our mountains and yell and hoot at the summit. I have gained weight over the last week and a half too. My "exucse" is ... "I had to eat on the road" We all know that we can eat healthy on the road ... I just didn't choose to and now I have to kick it up another notch. The holidays are coming up and so many of us use that as an "excuse" to eat and eat. We need to keep our reasons to choose better choices handy. We can do this, yes we can, yes we can, yes we can!!!
