Life can be stressful and so unforgiving sometimes!! I want to feel better about myself. I was big into exersise and over the last couple years I've not stopped to take time for it!! It's always odd jobs, the kids, meals, dishes...and then- my motivation is gone!!! I want to look and feel better...and like what I see in me!! Like what I saw in the mirror without effort or convincing myself at seventeen!! Giggle Giggle!! That would just be too nice wouldn't it??!!
I'm not shallow ... I'm not even much of a girly thing I just want to be healthy and a good example for my two girls. I'm always taking strides to do bette. Sometimes stress can be a real issue and it's hard to find good support. Getting off the baby weight was tough both times!! That was The Good Lord, will power and I real support in sight and I made it to 135 lbs, but it just didn't stay off long...and so I'd like to try again. I hate sitting around but when I do sit on the couch and watch a movie I hate the feeling I shouldn't sit and enjoy myself because I'm just getting fatter by the moment!! My motivation isn't what it once was...those long walks before my divorce and those evenings of pilates...they get shoved over on account of responsibilities... I know I must try harder to do more. So here's to getting my motivation back and lighting a fire under my tail!!! :)

My Goals:
My goal weight is: 135 lbs and the ability to wear my size 6 pants again :) and size 7 Wrangler jeans.
I have a trip to the beach planned for the 2nd week of October. My aim is to be 140lbs by then (10lbs less than now!!) INCENTIVE!! INCENTIVE!!

My Program:
45 minutes of exercise 5 days of the week. No sugary sweets or starches(no added breads)...the carbohydrates in fruits and vegetables alone are more than enough. Adding good protein to each meal as possible. 1200 calories per day. nothing to eat after 6pm. These are my rules!!

Personal Information:
I am from the farmland and pine trees of the Florida panhandle on the Alabama line.
I have two daughters whom I home school and to whom I give all my time, effort, and love!!

Other Information:
I enjoy the outdoors, God's special creatures, photography, literature, cooking, olden times, personal history and stories of the past, and most of all the human mind and all it's wonders. I love people and all we can learn from each other!! Love One Another!!
My Goal In Life: To reach out with love and respect to others even if they do not NEED me. To love as my Father loves me.
To be more fair than merely what justice requires. This is my life's ambition.
"Verily, I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." Matthew 25:40

    A friend sent me this and i thought it may be of interest to you.

    ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill who
    organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night
    at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of
    England, its people and peace. This had an amazing effect as bombing

    There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America .
    If you would like to participate: each evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time
    (8:00 PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are
    doing and spend one minute praying for the up-coming election, and for the
    revival of Christianity in this great country. If you know anyone who
    would like to participate, please pass this along. Someone said if people
    really understood the full extent of the power we have available through
    prayer, we might be speechless. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we
    have. Thank You. Please pass this on to anyone who you think will want to
    join us.
