helenChristine's exercise and eating journey

Hi! I'm Helen. I have a wonderful husband and 5 children. Each one has a completely different personality and different stengths and weaknesses, so they keep me hopping, trying to parent them all in their own ways... We live in NJ and we homeschool. I was born in Brazil to missionary parents and went to high school and college in Wisconsin. I studied Music Therapy in college and then worked with Alzheimer's patients for 5 years before having children.

I am doing the Gabriel Method of weight loss, starting March 2014. I also enjoy riding the exercise bike and doing the Leslie Sansone walk at home videos.

I try to follow the flylady's advice in decluttering and cleaning my home.

I am allergic to pesticides, and get nasty hives from them. The hives only come out when I'm feeling stressed and then take months to go away. I get them around every holiday, when school starts in September, and after vacations. Taking extra vitamin c's has upped my immunity and helped me get the hives under control.

NEVER discourage ANYONE
who CONTINUALLY makes PROGRESS
no matter HOW slow.

- - PLATO - -


Always remember that a step in the RIGHT direction, no matter HOW small, is STILL a step in the RIGHT direction! Don't be discouraged by SLOW progress for progress is progress no matter it's speed! As long as you focus each day on getting better & on moving forward, you will continually be moving in the direction of CHANGE, in the direction of HOPE & in the direction of SUCCESS! Each day brings reason to CELEBRATE!!! Choose to LIVE in the MOMENT!!! Choose to APPRECIATE each & every step that brings you closer to the BIG goal! YOU are STRONG, you are CAPABLE & you are DOING this & THAT is ALL that matters!!!

Stay Positive,

Jes

YOU are WORTH the effort, the time & the energy!!!
Dare to be EXTRAORDINARY!!!

Stay Positive, Change IS Coming,
