"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."

Winston Churchill


Wow, does this EVER apply to us here at SP!!!! 'Success is not final...' That's for SURE!! The success of reaching goal weight is NEVER final. It's an on-going odyssey that never ends. We have to work very hard to maintain that first sweet success of reaching goal and then holding on to it with great effort. 'Failure is not fatal' ~ Yes, there are so many challenges, most of them happen daily, there are slip ups, set backs, plateaus, but in the end....we DO overcome. This is the most important - 'it is the courage to CONTINUE that counts.' It's that positive attitude that rises above the challenges and propels us on. It's never quitting, never giving up, always dusting ourselves off and getting back in the game that counts. We WILL do it!!!


This was the last day of pre-school. Soooooo glad it's over. This means that from now 'til the end of school I'll only have 2 bus routes/day instead of 3. It will make a huge difference in my day. So much easier to get everything done, easier to get the cardio hiking in. Such a relief.

Had a great day, but it's late, so I'll close for today. A big thanks to you for stopping by today if you had time. Hope your Thursday was great!! emoticon
