This is my own personal cause & for those that don't have one, they may want to think about donating to one of the Sarcoma
Foundations below. My mother passed away from a rare form of cancer called Lipsarcoma. It is one of about 50 subtypes of sarcomas that affect all age groups from the youngest to the oldest. It is a
"a cancer that begins in the muscle, fat, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, or other supporting tissue of the body". There is no cure & funding is low because of its rarity. As some of you may know,
the rarer the form of cancer, the less money that is usually allocated to it by the larger organizations or the NIH (National Health Institute) as well as fewer people donate because they just don't
know about it. This cancer just keeps coming back, grows back where it already was & spreads to other areas as well. You can learn more about it at these links.

Gratitude Monday & the Sun; Happy Bday Time Again Too!
January 7, 2013
Welcome to Gratitude Monday. Each Monday, stop by & comment on what you are grateful for & how it will impact you to live a healthier life going forward. How it impacts you does not have to be food or exercise related. It can be in any way, shape or form! If you just want to write a grateful comment & nothing else, that is fine too. If your comment is the same as another one, so be it. Everything goes here.
First things first - the birthday shout-outs! I have 2 today!!! Happy birthday to my hubby's ex-wife - YES, we are friends & get along! Happy bday Gail!!! She is not a fan of pics right now so will leave it at that. Second shout-out is my niece, Jenny - hubby's brother's daughter. She is amazing young lady. She is working in Australia right now! She is trying to save the environment! Happy bday Jenny! Picture below.
Grateful for family for sure!!!! Also grateful for some sun this past Saturday. We have had some pretty cold & damp days for California. Winter can be chill here but it has been way colder than usual! We had a fairly decent day Saturday so happy & thankful for that! Sunday was a mixture of some sun & COLD for us! It was chillier than I prefer on but the sun was out! WELL.. except at my run time - raining - BOO! I would have run Saturday if I knew this was going to happen. The weather report did not say rain in the morn until later Saturday - too late. I am not good with during the day workouts so no biggie. I work out like a fiend anyway so this is not gonna do much harm.
Not to worry... I am going to take the rested legs & slam my leg workout today!!!! I might have already finished by the time some of you read this, depending, but it is going to be an awesome Monday all weight workout!!! I can't wait!!!!!!
Also thankful for my weekend cookie treats! I know, so surprised aren't you!!??
How was your weekend? How is 2013 starting out for you? What are you grateful for today?
