Thank you for visiting my Sparkpage. Well, I decided I should just probably go ahead a reset my program. It has been a horrible and unproductive year. I say it's just better to put all of it behind me. I am opting to address issues and set monthly goals. Planning is a key component on my agenda followed with persistence and consistency. I will not focus on weight loss so much. I am looking more towards better health choices and the weight loss is bound to follow that.

With about 90 lbs to lose, exercise is still a huge obstacle for me. I aim to work towards making it a healthy habit . I envy those who consistently make it part of their daily life.

Another huge obstacle is stress. I am learning that I create my own stress. My intention is to eliminate that self-created stress, spend more time organizing my life issues and spending less time on trying to overcome situations I have no control over.

Bottom line...Better planning, better organization and less procrastination and most importantly, slow down and breath for a while.

    The Starfish Story

    Once a man was walking along a beach. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. Off in the distance he could see a person going back and forth between the surf's edge and the beach. Back and forth this person went. As the man approached he could see that there were hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide.

    The man was struck by the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached, the person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the surf.

    As he came up to the young man he said, "You must be crazy. There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can't possibly make a difference." The young man looked at him. He then stooped down and picked up one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said, "It made a difference to that one!"

    emoticon You make a difference to me.

    You would not believe how motivating it is to blog your weekly plan. I can't even tell you how many times Ive wanted to skip a workout or order a pizza but didn't. All because I wanted to be able to say I followed my plan 100%!! Give it a try! Even if you just start out doing two or three days a week. It works really great!
