“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Oh, Lita, it is like you have reached through the spark page and touched my mind this morning. I do, indeed, have an extremely difficult relationship that I have to sort out.
The water and MTV will be easy-the other.....that is a real challenge.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Happy Friday to you!


Are you in a place in your life where you need to forgive or confront someone/something and MOVE ON? Is this thing effecting your weight loss efforts? Can you confront this thing (whether in my mind, on the phone, in a letter, etc.) and MOVE ON?

If you aren't dealing with an item like this, GREAT! Your challenge is to think of someone that you haven't said "hello" to in a while and give them a call, send them a card/letter, or send them an e-mail. There is nothing like catching up with those you care about.

FOR ALL: Get in AT LEAST 8 glasses of water today AND take your multi-vitamin. The weekend is just ahead and it is going to be GORGEOUS!

Have a FANTASTIC Friday!

Happy Thursday to you!

Your challenge today is to GET IN 10,000 STEPS. This can be achieved with walking, running, jogging, or a combination of them. Think about this:

1) How far is 10,000 steps? The average person's stride length is approximately 2.5 feet long. That means it takes just over 2,000 steps to walk one mile, and 10,000 steps is close to 5 miles.

2) A sedentary person may only average 1,000 to 3,000 steps a day. For these people adding steps has many health benefits.

3) A reasonable goal for most people is to increase average daily steps each week by 500 per day until you can easily average 10,000 per day.

4) Wearing a pedometer is an easy way to track your steps each day. Start by wearing the pedometer every day for one week. Put it on when you get up in the morning and wear it until bed time. Record your daily steps in a log or notebook. By the end of the week you will know your average daily steps. You might be surprised how many (or how few) steps you get in each day.

How about this:

1 Mile = 2,000 Steps = 100 calories burned

5 Miles = 10,000 Steps = 500 calories burned = 3,500 calories/week burned = 1 pound of weight loss/week

LET'S GET MOVING TEAM!

Have a great Thursday!
