A new year and an abundance of new changes! The plan is to focus on the mind, body, and spirit and celebrate it and love every part of it. The biggest block to success is the draining negativity of pining over what could be, what should have been, etc. Time to live in the moment, love to the fullest, enjoy and occasionally indulge! Time to play, smile, be carefree for a few minutes everyday. Sing, dance, smile, laugh, cry, and just live!
Being one with the moment. Lots of exciting changes on the horizon, not sure what they are yet, but I will celebrate them as they come!

    Nicole! Thanks for stopping by my page. So great to hear from you!! I'm sorry it has taken me a while to rspond. I have a ton of e-mails piled up from since before the holidays in December and I am trying to catch up. I come on here to track my food/exercise or post to a discussion here and there, but otherwise I want to clean out my inbox, and my house, all in the small amount of time I have while baby naps. How have you been? How is your adorable son doing? Please stay in touch and I hope you continue to stay with Spark. I've missed ya!

    emoticon Hi !
    It's December already; can you believe it? November and December are the busiest months for me (besides July and August and September!) It seems the Holidays bring our friends and families closer and we spend more time visiting, and entertaining during these two months than any others; lots of Holiday preparation going too!

    I find that I don't often get an opportunity to get around to Sparkpeople as much, but I try to stay focused as much as possible. Sometimes my good friend Will Power (who is always a welcome guest) doesn't show up until 'after' dinner, but I'm working on that as well.

    I hope things are going well for you and you don't find yourself too busy to take care of yourself. You are the most important person in your life!

    Keep in touch!

    emoticon Hi !
    How's things going for you today?
    I'm excited and eager to lose weight to get fit.
    I'm so glad to be motivated again, it took a long time, but finally I'm inspired. Some people just want to get sexy; not me...I just want to get healthy.

    Keep on keeping on!

    Whatever your personal goals are and whatever you do today...do it for YOU! Your worth it!

    Hi again!

    I must apologize for neglecting you these last few months...I've been really slack this summer and now into fall...oh I've been mindful of my food intake...but I have to admit that I haven't been restricting myself the way I should have been. Now to pay the piper! Oy! But I must say that the time has passed quickly and I now find it too cold to do too much outside (I'm a wimp) so I should have more time for sparkpeople.

    I seen this tip recently in some publication and thought it noteworthy to share and try:

    Add this to your rice and curb your appetite all day long...

    Shrink your appetite, your calorie intake, and your pants size with just one little addition to your rice: vegetables.

    In a recent study of normal-weight people, mixing vegetables into a plain rice dish at lunch helped people feel fuller for the rest of the day. So much so that they ate way fewer calories at dinner than the folks who had their rice straight up.

    Have a super wonderful week!
