Quote of the Day


Jillian Michaels, was born on this day in 1974.  She is an American fitness trainer, best known for The Biggest Loser show. She is a fantastic motivator, and has some great quotes.  We have a choice in what we eat, and if we exercise or not among other things!

I love her definition of Happiness! Happiness does take effort, as Life can be hard, but again, it is a choice that we make! We can decide to be happy, or we can decide to be miserable - each day we wake up, we can choose.  If you don't like something in your life that is making you unhappy, whether it is a job, a relationship, where you live etc, you can take the time and effort to make changes!
