Be A Positive Influence

Always strive to be a very positive source of inspiration, motivation and encouragement. I want everyone to succeed just as much as I want success for myself. I think it's important to always be a positive influence, because you never know if the person you are influencing needs it at that moment

Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds

If you like almonds, and you like dark chocolate, you will LOVE these. Each almond has just a hint of a dark chocolate coating that gives it just enough sweetness to make it feel sinful!!! 100 calorie packs, or you can get the big container and count them out. HIGHLY recommend for your sweet tooth!

SmartWool PHD Running Socks

I used this sock today for the first time, and it was an INCREDIBLE difference from when I wear normal socks. My feet didn't feel fatigued or tingly in anyway after I finished my C25K session, and it provided GREAT cushioning for my blister. I HIGHLY recommend this sock.

Active Spark People Participation

I have done the 'weight loss routine' for a really long time. Spark People has yielded the best results. It's good to sign up, but it's another thing to be an active participant. Join teams, get Spark Buddies, send Spark Email, read articles. Be an active participant and you will succeed!

Moving Comfort Sports Bra - Fiona

Recommended from my C25K group, I thought I would go ahead and try this sports bra out. I am 'well endowed', and have issues with sports bras getting along with 'the girls'. This bra was GREAT - very little bounce, and no wire (which was a surprise for me). Highly recommended - about $30.00

Small Goals Offer HUGE Rewards

It's easy to look at the final project, but it's important to make sure you allow yourself to have many small victories along the way. A special treat if you exercise a certain amount per week, or lose a pound or two. Always reward EVERY accomplishment, and the big picture will be the grand prize!

Every Day Is a "Do Over"

No matter what happened yesterday or today, we are all blessed with the opportunity for a 'do over'. We will wake up tomorrow and get a fresh start to make good choices and do what is right for each one of us! You wake up feeling refreshed, and get a fresh start. Make the most of your 'do over'!

You have to do it for yourself!

My entire life having people tell me that I was 'too fat', or I would be so pretty if I just lost a few pounds. I have realized that this has to be for ME, and not because everyone else wants me to, or because it would make THEM feel better! Now I am focusing on me, and am finally succeeding!

I just keep trying

It doesn't matter how tired I am when I wake up in the morning, I still get myself on the treadmill and continue the program. Usually, I am dreading it, but on the other side, when I am done, it was totally worth it!
