"Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved."

William Jennings Bryan


Hmmmm..... Never quite thought of it this way but I think there's quite a bit to it. Is it our destiny to be over weight, lacking in health or is it simply a matter of choice?? That would be the best news ever. We know the answer. Yes, it's definitely a matter of choice. We have chosen a life of health, flexibility & strength ~ we HAVE achieved it!! Right here with SP and we've done it together. Life is so good....a reflection of very good choices.


It was a real good day - very busy too. I hope I remembered to do everything! Sure did try. DH got a couple of fresh cod filets that he baked in the oven with lemon. It was so good. Light & flaky, done perfectly too. Had a side of broccoli with it. It was wonderful.

Tomorrow right after our bus routes we're going to our GS's 5th BD party. It's at a place in Indy that's like Chuck E Cheese - sheer bedlam non-stop. Unhealthy food. I won't eat there. We're there for his party, that's how I look at it. We can't stay long b/c it's a school night, but it'll be real nice to see DS & the 3 grand-kids again. Looking forward to it!

    I used to love going to Chuck E Cheese. So much going on that no one notices what I did or did not eat.

    First of all, happy birthday to your GS!

I couldn't agree with your quote more! You know, in my head I blamed my whole overweight and unhealthy on being hypothyroid and diabetic. I took a long time to come to grips with the fact that, though maybe the best I could hope for is good control, it was up to my choices nutritionally and with exercise that would make the difference. Turns out, that is RIGHT ON!! It's all about taking that power back into our own hands. We may be dealt some rough hands health wise, but we can always aim to live healthfully and to achieve our highest level of wellness possible.

HUGS and have a good time celebrating!

    Have a good time at the party and eat before you go.
I've been to a few places like that and it isn't the food
but the company you keep that matters the most.
