Working on getting healthy in mind, body and spirit. It has been a long rough road but making progress. If I just concentrate on my body it appears I am not making progress but when I concentrate on mind and spirit there is progress. That now is my priority and doing 30 minutes of workout everyday because when I exercise my mind is clearer.
This quote by Dr. Wayne Dyer has had a big impact on me.

"Consider that the number one health problem in America seems to be obesity. How can you feel inspired and live in simplicity if you're gorging on excessive amounts of food and eliminating the exercise that the body craves? Recall that your body is a sacred temple where you reside for this lifetime, so make some time every single day for exercising it. Even if you only manage a walk around the block, just do it. Similarly, keep the words portion control uppermost in your consciousness-your stomach is the size of your fist, not a wheelbarrow! Respect your sacred temple and simplify your life by being an exerciser and sensible eater. I promise that you'll feel inspired if you act on this today! " Dr. Wayne Dyer, in Inspiration: Your Ultimate Calling.

Still working on my Living Healthy Recipe Cookbook.

    "It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
    It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
    It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."

    "My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
    Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."

    If you fail, don't cease; Keep going, keep trying.

    Thanks for stopping by my page. yes, I'm excited to be back on track, too...it feels great. Hopefully I can make it last a good long time before I fall off the wagon again. Can't expect to be perfect, I only expect to do my best!

    So sorry you have not been feeling well. Take care of yourself, I hope you're all the way better soon. Its hard to stay on track when you're not feeling well. Don't be too hard on yourself, ok?

    Have a great week and a healthy, successful September!

    Thanks so much for the kind words on my blog, it truly means a lot! emoticon I really had started to get out of touch with all the things I had to go through at a higher weight, and it was a good reminder to look at stuff and see how far I've come. Speaking of how far we've come, congrats on your amazing success! :D
