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.

    Your July sounds like my March. I have birthdays on the 1, 3, 4, 15, two on the 30th, and 31st. My husband's birthday was on the 5th and we still celebrate it even though he's passed away. Hard, hard, hard to eat right on birthdays and holidays.
    I'm sure you'll take it right back off. Have a wonderful evening and God bless.

    Thanks for stopping by my page, I'm glad you liked the quote. Sorry you had a difficult week, and a possible gain. Just hang in there and you will lose it again. We can make progress as long as we don't quit.

    Hope your weekend is going great!

    "I believe that we are who we choose to be.
    Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
    Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
    Nobody knows what you want except for you.
    And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
    So don't give up on your dreams."

    Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!
    Hugs,
