Welcome to my castle

My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.

My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.

I have three grown children, one husband (that's always enough), two grand daughters, and a very hectic job that keeps me stressed out and eating on the fly. This page is where I will come for my daily "mini vacations." Here is where I will visit with myself. This will be my tranquil castle, where I come to give ME some royal treatment (and when needed, a royal pep talk). My mind's castle is here to escape from the REAL world pressures, if only for a few moments, and give myself what I need to survive another overthrown royal plan.

Here is where I find the power to rule my life. Here is where I decree my unhealthy habits to be banned from the kingdom (I mean queendom) forever more.

"Be Gentle with Yourself! Every disappointment is an opportunity to start over. It's a blank slate, a clean, white piece of paper. And don't worry--if this time you still can't color within the lines, you'll get another blank sheet, as many new beginnings as you need."
~This was from a message in a Spark Goodie from the wonderful Spark Motivator, L*I*T*A

It came just as we are entering a new month and the oneth of the month ALWAYS feels like a new beginning for me...(even if it is April Fool's Day!!!) I have been doing really well this year and entered Day 91 of 100 Days Challenge and feel so great about my weight going down and my fitness miles increasing. 2014 is off to a great start...and I'm convinced it can continue, especially with wonderful Spark Friends like you to keep encouraging me to do my best. Glad to be on this journey with you!
Linda

I'm so much like Maxine that it's scary...I often post her in my blogs so hope you'll keep checking them out!
