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.

Helen,

Healthy Eating begins at the grocery store:
If it isn't in your cart, it won't end up in your mouth!
Make choosing healthy foods to nourish your body a priority!
Food can either be the best form of medicine or complete & total poison!!
Choose to EAT to LIVE - - - YOU are WORTH it!!!
Stay Fabulous,

Jes

An old Cherokee man told his grandson,
"My son, there is a battle between two wolves going on inside us all."

One is EVIL. It is anger, jealousy, resentment, inferiority, lies & ego.
The other is GOOD. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy & truth

The boy thought about it for a minute, and then asked,
"Grandfather, WHICH wolf wins?"

The old man quietly replied,
"The ONE you FEED."

Never forget that you & only you can CHOOSE your attitude.
You CHOOSE which wolf to feed each & everyday!
If you are tired of feeling crummy,
STOP feeding the emotions that ONLY bring you down!
Always remember that a NEGATIVE attitude will NEVER create a POSITIVE life!!!
Choose To Be Happy,

Jes

"Most of the SHADOWS of this life
are caused by standing in our OWN sunshine."
- - Ralph Waldo Emerson - -

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


ALWAYS choose to be thankful for the blessings you have been given!When things are tough, remember that someone out there wishes for, prays about & dreams of having those very things that you are taking for granted! Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms! Don't dull your own sunshine by dwelling on negativity, bitterness or hate!

Dare to sparkle a little brighter, Darling!
