after being away from SP for over two years, I found myself unhealthy, out of shape and feeling badly. My blood pressure got high even though I am already on medication and my doctor increased the dosage. This was all I needed to make me realize that I have to improve my health and never let myself go again. Since returning I am exercising regularly, logging in what I eat every day and staying within my calorie range. I am already feeling much better and losing weight. I am 67, have two cats, one 18 yrs. old and the other 2 yrs. old. My husband is slowly eating better as well but he cannot exercise until he has knee surgery coming up sometime this fall we hope. We enjoy travelling and did a lot of long road trips this past three years.

    "It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
    It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
    It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."
    ~Jo Coudert

    If you see a fat man…
    Who’s jolly and cute,
    wearing a beard
    and a red flannel suit,
    and if he is chuckling
    and laughing away,
    while flying around
    in a miniature sleigh
    with eight tiny reindeer
    to pull him along,
    then lets face it…
    Your eggnog’s too strong!!!

    “Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.”

    All I Needed to Know About Life I learned from Santa


    Encourage people to believe in you.
    Always remember who’s naughty and who’s nice.
    Don’t pout.
    It’s as much fun to give as it is to receive.
    Some days it’s ok to feel a little chubby.
    Make your presents known.
    Always ask for a little bit more than what you really want.
    Bright red can make anyone look good.
    Wear a wide belt and no-one will notice how many pounds you’ve gained.
    If you only show up once a year, everyone will think you’re very important.
    Whenever you’re at a loss for words, say: “HO, HO, HO!”

    “I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's
    greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending
    commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”
    -Anthony Robbins

    “In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra.
    In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

    There was once a great czar in Russia named Rudolph the Red. He stood looking out the windows of is palace one day while his wife, the Czarina Katerina, sat nearby knitting. He turned to her and said, "Look my dear, it has begun to rain!" Without even looking up from her knitting she replied, "It's too cold to rain. It must be sleeting." The Czar shook his head and said, "I am the Czar of all the Russias, and Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

    "The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
