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.

Jeanne, I didn't know if you heard about the head-on collision accident that I was in. I posted an updated blog about my current injuries. I'm so proud of you for making daily healthy choices and permanent lifestyle changes, resulting in fulfilling positive results! I'm giving you a STANDING OVATION for the goals you have achieved and the progress you continue to make! You are:


emoticon * S * P * A * R * K * T * A * C * U * L * A * R * emoticon


S = Set goals! Develop plans! Take action! Make progress! See results!
P = Promote regular medical checkups to achieve optimum health!
A = Approach each goal with optimism, dedication and completion!
R = Reduce stress! Eat healthy! Drink water! Exercise regularly! Sleep better! Have fun!
K = Keep track of nutrition intakes, fitness minutes, weigh-ins and body measurements!
T = Trust your choices, decisions and actions in all that you do!
A = Add variety to nutrition plan, fitness activities and personal well-being goals!
C = Create a non-food reward system for working hard to achieve healthy results!
U = Utilize behavior modification to break bad habits and challenge yourself to change!

So...your dogs aren't very patriotic you say?
Anyway....thanks for birthday wishes. I have enough decorations now for a party. I'll expect you to arrive the same way your flowers did.
Big hugs from Me

I agree, Jeanne: Pay the performer if you stop and listen. Look at him/her/them and clap! I was downtown on the waterfront one day and a guy was sitting there with his guitar and styrofoam cup and I went to put some money in it and he stopped me....it was his coffee and he was just out on his lunch hour enjoying himself.
