I am my own hero!

One day at a time, making my health and happiness a priority. Never forgetting that I am always worth my best effort, and that I have the power to amaze myself!


"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next.

"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"
(Geneen Roth)

"An undivided heart. That's what my whole journey in conquering my cravings was about. When it comes to my body, I can't live with divided loyalties. I can either be loyal to honoring the Lord with my body or loyal to my cravings, desires, and many excuses for not exercising. The apostle Paul taught the Corinthians about this two thousand years ago when he wrote: "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body."
(1 Corinthians 6:19).
-Lysa TerKeurst

"You can become every courageous inch of yourself, your own heroine, but you have to act. No one can do this for you. It's up to you."
-Geneen Roth


“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
-1 Corinthians 10:31

“Your complaints, your drama, your victim mentality, your whining, your blaming, and all of your excuses have NEVER gotten you even a single step closer to your goals or dreams. Let go of your nonsense. Let go of the delusion that you DESERVE better and go EARN it! Today is a new day!”
-Steve Maraboli


“Dont ever be impressed with goal setting; be impressed with goal getting.
Reaching new goals and moving to a higher level of performance always requires change, and change feels awkward. But take comfort in the knowledge that if a change doesn't feel uncomfortable, then it's propably not really a change.”
-John C. Maxwell

Just because you are struggling does not mean you are failing. Every great success requires some kind of struggle to get there. Opportunity always comes with opposition. HANG IN THERE. — unknown

Good Morning Pixie,
Thanks for stopping by. I'm up early, my daughter is leaving this AM on her big trip. I talked about it in my last Sparkmail (not sure you got it?). So I got up early to see her off.

I hope all is well. When is your big visit?

Stay strong. I plan on really kicking things into high gear for the month that my daughter is gone.

Love you,
Jane

emoticon again on your NSV! It's always so encouraging to me when I read those kind of blogs. It reminds me that many other people are in this as I am, that we share wanting to eat healthier and be healthier. I do the same things reading labels, and it amazes me on ingredient lists when I see sugar as one of the first three, or the sodium content as well, as you have. Sometimes it turns my stomach thinking about all the sugar or salt. emoticon But when I make the better and healthier choices, like the fruit (I too recently got cherries and love snacking on them!), it makes me feel so good about myself. emoticon Keep up the emoticon work! emoticon for sharing!

A blessed week to you! emoticon
