My Mom's Birthday Today Marks DAY 1 Of My Newest Goal :o)

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Today's my mother's birthday & I'm so blessed to have such a WONDERFUL mommy!
It is also the homegoing celebration of one of my 1st cousins. She passed away on Tuesday at age 59 & so today my mom spent the day in mourning with family & friends but I hope that she's counting it all joy, a gift to celebrate her niece's life, so she can also enjoy this day that marks her birth!

As for me, as I morn I also count it all joy and have marked my mom's Birthday today, December 17, 2011, as DAY 1 emoticon of my newest goal, which will end on my Birthday, July 26, 2012...that'll be 7 months from now!

Of course we all want to be healthier, maybe lose weight, eat better, and be stronger in our bodies and souls...well, at least that's what I want! In reality some of you may just want to maintain what you've accomplished, gain healthy weight, or finish other life goals!

So today, I've exercised to one of my dvd's (not the whole thing but I'm happy with what I've done)! I ate breakfast! Had a snack! Ate a sensable Lunch! Been drinking tons of H20! Took my medicine! Went outside!
HEY I'm just keeping it simple and being thrilled with what I have accomplished as I go along!

Well, although I'mstill working on exactly what I hope to see in July of next year...I do want to get down to a good weight, which I recorded on SP & I want to be able to exercise pain free with flexability. But again, I'm keeping it simple. So I deleted the long list of SparkGoals and will focus on 1 or 2 at a time. Details to follow!

Well, all the best to everyone and I'm off! PRESSING TOWARD THE GOAL!
Much Love!

    Oh, as a LEO, you certainly are a person who wants to make an inpression when you enter a room, as you want to be the center of attention, so being "in shape" and looking your best is vital to you, but you do have the determination and drive to get what you want.
    LEO has a 'big heart' when it comes to wanting to care for others, but she also has to watch for Heart Disease and Back issues. For those reasons you don't want to be fat. The "Lioness" is the hunter and she takes charge, but if you notice, as Lioness is always full of muscles and she's lean. She has to be fast and able to run. She always wants to win.

    I'm sorry about your cousin who is 59. That is much to young to die, but since this is the only life we get, we have to make the most of each day. I know between now and July 26th, you will use each day. emoticon
