What a state we live in, Yes over we the past 137 yrs our state has had its growing pains and some great achievements and some horrible things happen to us, Most recently Columbine Shootings in 1999, Aurora Movie Theater Shooting in 2012 all the Fires our state has endured the past few summers and the lives that were lost or effected by it all. We, Coloradoans even me a Semi-native, have lived through so much. Just imagine if all those people from the past were alive to see all that has gone on....What stories we could hear. I love this state. I am a semi-native. I was born in California but was basically raised in Colorado...this is home. My family lives here and my children were born and raised...still raising here. I wouldn't be any other place right now.
Today is also Live Well Colorado's start of Colorado's Get Movin Challenge for the Month of August. This is a great movement...my daughter and I have signed up and we are Movin in our area, Buena Vista and the county is high with the obesity rate, but I know we can get this area so healthy. I am so committed to getting healthy and fit, I start that and my weight will start to come off. I am not wanting to race to get this weight off, I want to do it the most healthy and fit way to do it. I am hoping I can be an inspiration for others to choose best way to live. I know I have alot to over come on my journey and it will be a steady go at it. To the days, weeks and months to come I will be facing alot fears, demons, joys, milestones and just days...you know what I mean. I am ready to face this journey and will do whatever I need to do to over come and CONQUER!!
A friend of mine had a great pic on Facebook today, it is a New motto I am going to have to live by,
