Five years already!

It has been five years that I stopped smoking, and decided to work on my excess weight.

I have been very successful with the no smoking part, but not so much with the losing weight... I keep losing, then gaining back. And the cycle starts again.

It is time now to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong. I think I stay on a diet that is too restrictive, and when I allow myself a little "break", this turns into several months of over eating.

Raising a handicapped son all by my myself is stressful, but I tend to use this as an excuse to over eat.

So, let's pick up the momentum and see what we can do to get back on track, shall we?

My Program:
- Eat balanced meals, not too restrictive calorie-wise.

I am originally from France, but now live in Virginia. We go every year on vacation on Lake Superior (in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and we love it there!

Other Information:
I recently joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it has brought wonderful changes in my life.
I love to read (theology and history books) and I listen to classical music (J.S. Bach is my favorite composer).

Bonjour Véronique. Félicitations pour le nouveau poupon!

L'école recommence le 26 août prochain. J'ai fait un peu de cuisine en fin de semaine passée. J'ai cuisiné différents muffins. J'ai aussi fait des gaufres maisons pour les déjeuners. Je veux aussi faire quelques crêpes et pains dorés, biscuits et autre. Je congèle le tout et cela fait des déjeuners/collations express pour l'école!

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task.
The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be.
Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances.
Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think.
By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,
you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske

Count your blessings. Once you realize
how valuable you are and how much you have going for you,
the smiles will return, the sun will break out,
the music will play, and you will finally
be able to move forward the life that God intended
for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.
Have a great day,a great weekend and a hope you have a wonderful week a head.
