Yes I've encouraged people today. Apparently I also discouraged a couple more by pointing out some obvious things that were in disagreement with reality on their part.

I'm not one to run around thinking encouragement means perking others up to do the things I'm advocating.

I'm not a cheerleader type, although George W. Bush indeed was one. He even was one while he was in the WH. But that's another story.

I hope all folks will hang in there doing realistic goals towards attaining the best health they can find.

I spread that around, often by giving gifts when I visit random members here at SP. Of course, who else is going to notice that, eh?

I'm anticipating people to be involved with the team, I'm hoping we can diminish the average of 1 in 7 kids in the USA going hungry regularly. My hopes are not often proven to be a good or safe bet.

My goal this month is to continue helping neighbors, seeking a real congregation of people who are welcoming in the stranger, the poor, widowed, orphaned, and such.

It is hard to be a realist and still try to believe in the best of other people.

Please feel free to tell me I'm wrong, but be sure to do so with evidence not just argumentation. The world has enough empty arguments as it is.

Aren't I just the happy Hannah, the Joyful Jenny, or more appropriately, the Glad Gregory.

Not.

Sorry.

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

OO0SUSIE0OO motivated me to have more salads...I will look for green peppers and tomatoes today to see if they are on clearance. I already have the lettuce and dressing. The bags of lettuce were only a $1.00 each (I kind-of splurged...the heads of lettuce were 89 cents...really cheap) and I kind-of splurged on the dressing...I usually just use oil and vinegar but the salad dressing was calling my name...LOL WIsh me luck on finding produce on clearance!

Because of the faulty stovetop/oven, my crockpot has extremely motivated me to challenge myself in fixing frugal, healthy and tasty meals using everything and anything I can find in my kitchen cupboards, fridge and freezer.

Do you do chores? This could really be counted as activity! Under tracking category it is called "heavy housecleaning" I am always zooming around the house doing stuff.

Have you encouraged someone today?

Each time I do this, it really makes me feel "GOOD", to know that I might have lit the SPARK that may keep someone MOTIVATED to keep reaching for their goals!

Very hard to keep ourselves motivated, so we REALLY need to stick together on our weight loss journeys!
