One Step at a Time. . . .

Everyday is a new beginning. I am trying to learn that I don't have to wait for tomorrow to begin again but as soon as I fall , I can get up and start over. I still maintain this thought and I can always start over.

My Goals:
To lose 25 lbs although I have about 55 I should lose. I am trying for the 25 first - it doesn't sound like a huge hurdle but it feels like it. I am trying to remember to ask for God's help when the food temptations occur as well as exercising which is a challenge with my phyical difficulties. But I am determied to remain determined to accomplish my goal within this year! Well good thought while it lasted. I do enough exercise that would bobble your mind, lifting and pushing and moving "stuff" just to make room to live and then there is the pool I long fro all winter. But I manage to stay at a regular weight although I did loose 10 lbs during my bout with vertigo - now time to face the scales again.

My Program:
my programwent down the tubes years ago but I still practice moderation and as I get older I see I cannot eat as much as I used to - (that is a good thing) and being a lover of sweets, I am careful of what I choose and how often. I always have a water bottle handy and limit any coffee intake. I don't bake like I used to which is a good thing for me but the grands are missing all those cookies I used to bake!

Personal Information:
My name is Joyce from Mechanic Falls, Maine. I have 4 grown children and 10 grandchildren. I have four granchildren who live with m0e. I am disabled but remain as active. I love to read, write, and I am very involved in my church. I have no time with all my grandchildren & daughter in law here to breathe sometimes and other times we just shriek with laughter!

Other Information:
I love to read phiosophical, theological, informational and faith-based books. My favorite authors are Max Lucado, Ellen White, Doug Bachelor, and Gary Smalley as well as the books written by Corrie ten-Boom. And others - still reading.

Jo, I count my blessings everyday, too. Thanks for the kind words. I've been meaning to check on you! Glad to hear you're recovering, every so slowly. Me, too ... sending you an email update soon.

Mini-Challenge for this week: “Count Your Blessings”

emoticon emoticon Don’t just count calories, and don't just count your reps … “Count Your Blessings.” Giving thanks can do a lot more than just change your outlook on life. It can also benefit your body, your health, and even the number on the scale. Be thankful of what your body can do, and think of exercise as a gift you’ve been given—rather than a chore. . . and you’ll be more likely to stick with it!

We got lost just this weekend we were in Plattsburgh NY and I asked DH to go a different way home. We ended up on route 2 and my Garmin lost its battery.
I looked at the gazetteer and my readers were in my bag in the back of the mini-van. Eventually we got home and we were anxious but we had fun.

Join me for a little #mondaymotivation

"Take your body for a ride. Do the Monday Mile. Skip the elevator, take the stairs!"

Walking's not your thing … do something for 15 min (= 1 mile). Just move!

Have a healthy and fit week … don't forget to be emoticon !!!
