"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure."

Bill Cosby


OK guys, we all know what the alternative is and it should scare the pants off of us. Period. As for options - there are none. We HAVE to succeed - our very lives depend on it!! Success with SP is the only way. Fear of failure? You betcha. In the weight loss phase or the life-long maintenance phase, there is only one, absolute SUCCESS. The good news is...we CAN do it!!!!


Had a pretty busy day again. I think tomorrow looks like it'll be busier tho!! Rained nearly all day here so did all of the cardio walking inside. Made a few rounds outside with Jetta & the umbrella, but those were what I call 'extra' steps - don't count as cardio, too much stop & go.

No ST today.

Had a real good sleep last night - really needed it. Felt so much better today. Good sleep is really the cornerstone of the whole day. It makes such a difference. I had no idea about that until I became a Sparkie!!! emoticon

Highlight of the day was a Skype with DS who is in Thailand. Haven't seen him for over 2.5 years. He was in Spain for 2 school years, then went to Thailand and has applied to Spain again for a hopeful return there for a few years. He teaches English as a 2nd language. He & his GF are fully 'over' Thailand and living in a 3rd world country. Nothing is easy there. Not even using the restroom. Suffice it to say we who live in the US are more privileged than we'll ever know. We have so much to be thankful for. So much.

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope you had a real fine Tuesday and had a chance to get in a good workout! emoticon

    It sounds like he wants to get back to civilization as he knows it.
