I have learned to eat properly over the past months, and actually look forward to my exercise each day. It gives me energy and motivation I never knew I had in me.

I have found such a difference in the way I eat. I am so happy. Junk food rarely crosses my path and when it does, I am no longer afraid to enjoy it. I have learned portion control which is so extremly important.

So my friends, come along with me on this Journey Renewed Success in 2011. Togeather we will make a difference. One step at a time.

For those of you who wonder where or why I picked such a strange name: Ka taki tomotsin in Blackfoot means BE STRONG. Lets all be strong.

**********
GREAT RECIPE FOR 2010!

* Take a 10 - 30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile.
It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

* Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Talk to God about what is going on in your life.

* When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, "My purpose is to_____today. I am thankful for ____."

* Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

* Drink tea and plenty of water. Eat more fruits and vegetables.

* Try to make at least three people smile each day.

* Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

* Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

* Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

* Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

* Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

* You are not so important that you have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

* Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

* Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

* No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

* Frame every so called disaster with these words: "In five years, will this really matter?"

* Forgive everyone for everything.

* What other people think of you in unimportant. Truth is, they're probably not thinking of you at all.

* GOD heals everything -- but you have to ask Him first.

* However good or bad a situation is, it will change. Change is the ONLY constant in the universe.

* Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch!

* Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

* Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: "I am thankful for _____. Today, I accomplished ____."

* Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

* When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings. You'll be smiling before you know it!
