GIVE YOURSELF a little "Pep-Talk" today! But this time, talk to yourself using "the second person" (like "I know YOU can do it," instead of "I know I can do it"). We have been conditioned our whole life to perform for others--receiving support & directions from family & teachers when we were growing up, so we respond more positively. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your dearest friend . . . with encouragement, compassion, love & support. emoticon

Morning, Linda. Thanks for visiting my blog and for the atta girl on the weight loss. I'm working hard on my consistency goals. Problem is....if I focus on one thing, the other stuff tends to fall by the wayside. One day maybe I will find the happy medium....think "they" call it balance. Never been there emoticon but people tell me it exists, lol.

Have an awesome Wednesday!

Yes, I had Home Ec. in school and I flunked sewing, but I did cook and bake up a storm, and I still do. I do batch cooking and freeze individual servings for me. But I just don't know how to can like my mom and grandparents did, with the mason jars and everything. Mom made her own jam and jellies and I couldn't get the hang of that, so I just left it alone, because I was getting to frustrated and beating myself up.

Blessings!
