helenChristine's exercise and eating journey

Hi! I'm Helen.
I am enjoying being a Turquoise Titan here on Spark (thus my turquoise background).

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 ...
Hi! I'm Helen.
I am enjoying being a Turquoise Titan here on Spark (thus my turquoise background).

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.

Blue has always been my favorite color, and when you add just that hint of green it becomes that much more translucent and etheral--TURQUOISE TEAM IS REPRESENTING! It's funny because as I am visiting your team, I find myself calmer and more tranquil overall...thank you for the moments of peacefulness in an otherwise hectic day!

I just wanted to stop by and wish you the best on this challenge and your journies overall from the Dazzling Diamonds. May you Sparkle and Shine in all you endeavor to achieve!!

Hugs,
Marijo

"There is INSIDE of you
ALL of the potential
To be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY
To do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step
Towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Sweetheart,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Motivated, Change IS Coming,

Jes

I did not know that an implant and a bridge cost about the same. I thought the implant was more expensive. I'll have to go out of town to have an implant done. My dentist uses a specialist who is 110 miles away on the other side of the mountains from us.

I have time to do some research.

Thanks.

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
