FAREWELL FROM THE DOGHOUSE (7)

Friday, March 08, 2013

I may not know until next winter whether my new habit will stick, but at least I know I can do it. It's still winter out there, although today was looking pretty promising, and my ticker is moving to the right, NOT the left. It's like a miracle - woo hoo!!!! I plan to keep up my frisky ways now until my ticker gets to that four letter word at the far right - G-O-A-L.

So this is not farewell to my Spark Friends and this is not farewell to my healthy lifestyle, only farewell to this particular LTGL challenge, and what a great challenge it was. Thanks to all our "all powerful pooches" for nipping at our heals and to all you wonderful Spark Friends who have come by the doghouse to share all your support. It wouldn't have been nearly such a great party without you.

WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST AS WE GO FORWARD!!!!

MEANDERINGS FROM THE DOGHOUSE 6

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Today our "Grand Doggy" has asked us whether we need some motivation or advice, and if so, to ask for it.

This dog couldn't be any more motivated - not possible. There has been a week-long party going on in this doghouse and I have enjoyed the visits from all my old friends and new friends alike. What an amazing experience this has been.

I cannot thank you all enough for stopping by to see me and leaving all your precious nuggets behind. You're the best!!!!

MEANDERINGS FROM THE DOGHOUSE 5

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

The topic under discussion today is "What can you improve upon?" That is one loaded question. The first answer that popped into my head was, "Everything." But, you know, that's not actually true. As I have been going along on my journey, little by little I'm feeling stronger, more confident, in control if you will, and all the other "stuff" needing improvement is magically improving. I guess this is what you would call the domino effect.

Bottom line, by improving my health first, I'm getting a lot of bang for my reno buck!!!

MEANDERINGS FROM THE DOGHOUSE 4

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

The topic of discussion for today is "How are you doing day by day."

I am planning and preparing all my food a week ahead of time and I have made a fitness appointment with myself for each and every day of varying durations. I follow the plan and eat within my calorie range and do the exercise I have scheduled. I wake up each day and execute the plan with enthusiasm. I'm losing weight and feeling healthy. It just doesn't get any better than this.

Oh, and the best part is visiting my Spark Friends every day. You give me strength!!!!
