I joined Spark People July 17th 2009. My name is Linda.

I write about gardening:

I'm also the writer for "Our Gifts Within" - daily virtues and affirmations for the higher self!!

Check me out on these sites for inspiration and information on how to grow your own garden.

In "Secret of the Ages" - Robert Collier writes:

"Every organ, every muscle, tissue and cell of your body is subject to your subconscious mind. They rebuild exactly as that mind directs them. What is the model you are holding before your mind's eye?"

"You cannot evolve and truly blossom spiritually unless you consciously work on forming a collective ambiance of harmony, love, peace and light, in which everyone will breathe and be nourished."

My Goals:
First is to find peace & balance living all alone.

Take care of myself the way I would take care of my children.

Be as efficient, organized, and productive the same way I would perform at a full-time job.

Learn how to Mother myself, well.

Set realistic goals:

Food Plan - definitely use the tracker to keep me focused on correct portion sizes & balanced protein/carbs/fat.

Sit with food, give Thanks, & read a print-out of the food tracker meals to appraise the quality, quantity, and value.

Bless the water I drink and repay the Almighty Source for having clean pure energizing water by showing my Love and Gratitude.

Exercise Goals - I am not ready. Back injury - need to plan out with my doctor. SP says I need a Cardio & Strength Training program to lose belly fat & improve waist to hip ratio & overall appearance and health.

Set up a weekly reward system.

Bed by 11 PM. Read until 11:30 PM. Jon

My Program:
* Jon Gabriel hypnosis tapes at bedtime

* Food Tracker


* Deal w/ Depression

Refrain from using a setback as excuse to fall off the wagon.

Keep a daily journal on things to be grateful for, and on positive aspects of self, emotions.

Do self exam on progress and why I eat the foods I do.

Build muscle - burn fat - tone skin as the fat melts away.

Keep an outfit out in bedroom that I want to wear, again - try it on every Saturday morning until it fits.

    Collapsing as soon as I walked into the house and falling asleep with no dinner for weeks. Waking at midnight and eating a bowl of sugarfree mini shredded wheat. Waking up to alarm at 5 AM. NO quality of life. Taxes due Jan 1. With emoticon oral surgery gone wrong, anti biotics for 10 days, I just collapsed. No quality of life and being alone

    I am exhausted. Try living alone with no money and maintaining a house and property with severe VERTIGO and your family has abandoned you.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog.

    I don't test my A1C every day. That is usually once or twice a year. I am keeping close eye on my blood sugar every day because I am adjusting and learning what to eat and not eat & how often. to keep my sugars level. It's working. I am learning a lot through keeping it several times through out the day.

    Eventually, I'll not have to do that. BUt I'm glad that I am.

    Usually 2-3 times a day.

    Take care, Happy New Year!
