I grabbed the following quote from a fellow SP member's page. I need to hear this message loud and strong.

“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”

... and this piece of information -- especially for my 2020 Winter 5% Challenge Team members: I lost my 48-year old brother this past April (2019) to suicide. It still shocking and still hurts.

Checking back in... the first anniversary of my brother's death is coming up this month. We sure miss him.

    It was nice to see your comment. I have been really busy with work and simply tired after work and not giving my self the time to post. I have been working out most of the time though, but I need to get back to posting regularly to keep my self in check and start to loose weight again.

    I hope you are doing good and sticking to your work out and eating right.

    Thank you for commenting on my page. Nice to hear from you. Warmer days sounds very nice. It have been lots and lots of snow in Iceland, we have to go back to 1984 to find similar! Spring sounds very nice in my ears :-)

    Spinning class is always fun and I enjoy it a lot. I also tried Zumba class on Saturday and enjoyed it a lot. I recommend it.

    I am sure you will enjoy taking yoga with your friends. I would love to have a real live friend to go with me to my gym but I like the people at the gym and try do chat a little with them before and after classes.
