Another Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Posted: September 23, 2009 at 11:29 pm

Today was another fabulous day. The weather was nice, workouts were grooving, meals were spot on, and life was filled with love. I don't have much more to add to that for my life! 

As for The Biggest Loser last night, I enjoyed watching the teams have to work together towards a goal and I am proud that they achieved it. Helping each other reach our goals is so important and when you help others, you feel better, and have the mutual support to help yourself in the process. Hopefully we can all learn to support each others dreams in our everyday lives instead of tearing each other down and trying to get ahead - which I know will be the name of TBL game soon enough. Something else that stuck out to me was that I had NO clue on the soda question of their mini-challenge. Why? Because I don't ever drink regular soda. That ignorance is bliss to me 😉
