Never Give Up!

Believe it or not, but we
are already on the fourth week
of January. Are you like many
who started off the New Year
with the sizzle of starting on
a new fitness program?

You have your "out of shape picture" on the fridge. Your
bikini is hanging in your closet as a reminder of your goal
to wear this summer. You've got a long awaited trip/vacation
coming up that requires you to be strong and active to have
fun and enjoy every moment of the trip.

Than life throws you a curve ball and you miss a workout,
you miss a meal or two. You start thinking whats the use or
you can't or don't want to continue. And so your drive and
excitment that was so evident and lively in the beginning starts
to fizzle.

Trust me, I can't tell you how many times that has happen
to me...yes, despite I live, breathe and practice fitness and
health, I am human too:)

Here is a poem that has given me guidance and strength to
help me through those tough and ruff times.

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Stay Strong!
