2021 Goals

To BE better and DO better!

Exercise 5 days a week and track my progress.

Other goals for 2021 to make ME a better person:

Purge and clean something everyday, reduce household items!
I made great progress in 2020, I have already started a box for goodwill for this year!!

"Live Simply, Love Generously, Care Deeply,
Speak Kindly, Leave the rest to God"

To Change One's Life:

1. Start immediately.
2. Do it flamboyantly.
3. No exceptions.

~ William James

Failure is falling off the wagon and never having the courage to get back on no matter how many times we fall off.

~~Feelings and Emotions happen -- acting on them is a choice.

~~Change your lifestyle -- change your weight (I am working towards this)!

~~Do not compare yourself to others, only be better than you were.

~~Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it."

~~People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily. JRSYGRL75

~~Defy Expectations! H2O4LIFE (she rocks!)

It takes 21 days to change a behavior....that doesn't sound so hard does it??

"Never argue with an idiot. They just drag you down to their level and beat you with years of experience." (Love this one!)

- Happy moments, praise God.
- Difficult moments, seek God.
- Quiet moments, worship God.
- Painful moments, trust God.
- Every moment, thank God.

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
~Leo Buscaglia

    Hey! Congrats on your weight loss, too! My family and I are doing our own "Biggest Loser" thing. Myself, my husband, mom, sister, and my daughter (10) are all in it. We put money into a jar each week. The winner gets $250! It has given me the incentive to work my butt off - LITERALLY! LOL. All you gotta do is have a goal and some motivation!

    I saw your pics....lookin great! The haircolor change is good. Dark hair is slimming....(I am a hairdresser, I know). I went dark a couple of months ago too. :-) Keep up the good work!
