Starting at the worst time of the year

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Well today is the start. After having read about half of the "Spark" book I realize that I am of the dieter mentality. It is easier for me to deprive and then about a year or two later find myself needing to "diet" again. I know that this is a terrible time but being contrary is in my makeup so perhaps I will be able to get through the holidays on the strength of that alone.

My goal is to continue through my older age at an enhanced level of activity and vigor. I have been blessed with good health and a love of the outdoors and don't feel particularly impaired but I have been feeling un-energetic.

My sister died a week ago (she had juvenile diabetes and it finally destroyed her health.) It makes one realize how short our life is and my personal favorite "this isn't a dress rehearsal."

You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

You have the power to succeed or fail.

You have chosen to succeed.

Few baby steps complete a long journey

Writing is progress!!!

    emoticon Sorry about your sister, but you certainly are right that this is the only life we live and we need to make the most of it each day. My nephew died from lymphoma in October, but he was 54, which seems "old" to someone young, but it really isn't old. He'd been in treatment for 3 years. It really pays to take care of your health and not be exposed to toxins. He'd work on cars doing repairs and not use a face mask, etc. thinking it wasn't a big deal when he was young. I think all of that poisoned his body over time, but can't prove it. It certainly pays to take care of your health.

    I am SO sorry for your loss! I can't imagine what you are going through. I am like you, working on getting more active and fit as I get older.

You have a great attitude! I wish you great success!
