Instead of saying to the world "why me?" say "try me!"

I read that little quote somewhere this week and it's been in the back of my mind ever since. You either give up in life because something is unfair, or too hard or overwhelming, or you keep pushing until you conquer your challenge. Some definite food for thought.

This morning my scale is back to where it was two weeks ago. After going up last Tuesday, I was disheartened but I knew it would come down this week. Considering I had cheesecake and cookies and cheese and crackers over Thanksgiving, I think this is pretty significant and I can't wait to weigh in next week. I think I'll be in the 160s before the end of 2013!

We're planning a trip to NYC this weekend and I was worried about fitting exercise in since we're leaving so early in the morning and well be spending about 9 hours int eh car total. Then I remembered how much walking is involved in a NYC visit. Hopefully Faith can stand all that "exercise" without complaint.

So far the Xmas season is off to a peaceful start (though we still have to find some time to get an Xmas tree!) and I'm still feeling good about meeting my goals for the end of the year. Now if I could just find a fun NYE outfit!!

Happy first week of December Sparkfriends! What are you trying to fit in before the end of the month?

    Sounds like such fun! Keep those goals in mind, and you'll do fine. I have a weight goal in mind for December, but keeping my exercise consistent is just as big a victory.
