and it is time for me to start loving myself again. I got a little off track this fall after getting a new job, but now it is time for me to put some energy and time into getting healthy and fit. I need to do this for myself! I'd love some encouragement too, so drop me a line!

Goyaam goals:
1. Walk! I'll set a new virtual goal to reach this month with all the miles I achieve.
2. Continue to log in and post food/ exercise! I know that daily tracking is key for my success.
3. Reach for water first before anything else...64 oz daily minimum.
4. Focus on my portion sizes. I know I eat bigger portions than necessary, so I'm really watching it this month.
5. Start the C25K program...I want to be able to run one!

"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."
~H. Jackson Brown

"Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me."
Carol Burnett


Each day is a gift. Use it wisely and be grateful for what could be accomplished, even if it was a baby step. Sometimes those add up to a lot!
