I just visited a dear friend who's struggling with cancer. (She's doing very well at this time.) I hadn't seen her in several months, and when she asked me how I was doing, I answered, "I'm fat". She answered, "YOU are not fat. Fat is not who you are. You're so much more than that!" Coming from her, it was a potent reminder that having extra fat on my body does not define who I am. I'm so ashamed of my excess weight that I'm always conscious of it. But it does NOT define me! I want to get rid of the excess weight on my body in order to be healthier and better able to express who I really am.

I usually take advantage of this time of year to reflect on the past year, and plan for the coming one.
As I look over the past year, there are many things I'm grateful for. There are also disappointments, one of which is my lack of follow-through as far as my health goals are concerned. Maybe I should rather say lack of consistency. Some weeks/months, I'd give myself an A+ for physical activity (my biggest challenge), but at other times, it's an F, and that F can be (literally) deadly.
I've found an excellent (free) life planning tool that's helping me to work through my goals in different areas of my life. It's useful for evaluation and planning. Anyone can sign up to receive the free document by email at michaelhyatt.com/life-plan I do want to warn anyone who might be offended by Christianity that Michael Hyatt's document, "Creating Your Personal Life Plan", while containing strategies that can be useful to everyone, is written from a strongly Christian perspective.
As I review my goals for 2013, I wish you success in achieving your own health and fitness goals in the coming year!

I enjoy using SparkPeople.com a bit too much - reading and commenting on blogs, writing blogs and receiving feedback, earning SparkPoints, etc. I especially love interacting with my SparkFriends. I need to cut down on the amount of time I spend on the computer. Even as I'm writing this, I feel like trying to find a great picture to add to this blog, but I won't. It's not the best use of my time right now.
I need to take a SparkBreak. I think that by pulling back, I'll be better able to determine which SparkTools to use, and which ones not to use.
I wish you success in reaching your health and fitness goals!
