Wow 2012 has been an amazing year for me! unfortunately I have been so focused on other goals my healthy lifestyle ( which should be the most important) has gone out the window. Well now it is time to focus on being the healthiest I can be. I turn 49 in November and I am having a big 49 forever party because 50 is something I don't feel so I have decided that I am just not going to be 50 just 49 forever.

List of the great things for 2012
1. Saw the Taj Mahal in January
2. Competed with my Choir Endeavour Harmony Chorus and won the Australian Female Barbershop Championship in May (off to Hawaii next year for the World Championships)
3. Finished the City to Surf well within the time limit for my first time will beat it next year.

Hi I am a 45 year young working Mum in Sydney Australia. I have decided I want to be healthy and I had let my weight creep up into the unhealthy range. I am looking to eat well, and exercise moderately and be in the middle of my ideal weight range. Both my parents have died in the last 4 years (my beloved dad only 6 months ago) from Cancer in their early 70s and I want to give my self every chance of that not happening to me. So I have only been on this journey for a week but I find the site amazingly helpful and goes with me where ever I travel for work.

    Thank you for the goodie! I don't get to Spark as much as I use to due to working full time and wanting to walk the dog and all the other stuff to do with life! emoticon

    Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

    “When we feel good about ourselves and embrace our talents and resources, we have taken the first steps toward realizing our full potential” ~ Gillian Stokes

    “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw

    “Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them, every day begin the task anew.” ~ Saint Francis de Sales

    I just noticed you're in a choir! I absolutely love music. I haven't been in a choir since high school, but I sure miss it. I do, however, teach piano for a living and love it so much. Let me know if your choir comes to Brisbane area! I'd love to hear some lovely music. :)
