Not actually in the physical sense, but mind-wise..I've decided to enjoy the day as if it were a nice, summer day, with the slight breeze blowing, the scent of flowers, and the feel of soft grass beneath my feet. One of those days where you just are so glad to be alive and able to enjoy all that God has given us.
Closing my eyes, listening to the birds singing, the wind through the trees, the sound of tractors in the field, everything that reminds me of happiness, and home-cooking. How wonderful to put oneself in that frame of mind, to be able to move into a place that makes you so exuberant you cannot believe that you're here to enjoy it.
What a wonderful feeling, and I'm going to carry this all day through. I hope you all have a wonderful Barefootin' Day ahead of you, too.

There are days when I just feel like I'm 6' off the ground walking, and today is one of those days. I'm not sure what brings it on, but I think looking at the sparkgifts I'd been given, helped tremendously and reading the messages....what a way to make someone smile.
Thank you, everyone, for your kindness shown to me, and for accepting me as your friend, I'm blessed and honored, both by your actions and am thankful every day for the friendship which is given.
I think that helps a lot on this little "trip" we're taking together, knowing that there will be someone there. I hope I help others smile as they do me. Again, thank you, now back to "CloudDancing"!

Measure your Waist (monthly) 3/10/13- 45. / 45.5 - 2/26/2013
Measure your Hips (monthly) 3/10/13-52.5/ 54 - 2/26/2013
Measure your Thigh (monthly) 3/10/13-29.5/ 30 - 2/26/2013
Measure your Upper Arm (monthly) 3/10/13-17.75/ 18.5 - 2/26/2013
I'm sooo excited, I actually went down again on everything, how wonderful! I looked back from when I started and my measurements then were:
Thigh: 29 (think that was muscle buildup)
Upper Arm: 18
That's a total drop, so far, of
Upper Arm: .75"
Thigh: gained .25, but that could be due to the muscle buildup maybe?
Anyway, I'm really thrilled with this, it is definitely a HAPPY HEART DAY, for me. I hope it is for all of you out there.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!!

I measured myself today and had actually gained inches, not a lot, but then I thought about it and realized I'd not measured in the way I had before. So when everyone's gone, I'll do it the right way..no clothes covering the areas I'm measuring...let's hope it goes down.
I've been really adhering to my diet and exercise, so I'm hoping it does go down, heck I'd measured my thigh with my jeans on, and they'd decreased a half an inch or was it an inch, I don't remember, so I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.
I do hope you all have a bright and beautiful Sunday, I'm heading to bed soon, so just wanted to stop in.

I love the rainy nights.....ok, so that's a song, but still, to hear the rain on the roof is sooo soothing, they should take it and sell if to help people sleep...but then again, don't need to sell it, it's given freely. What a beautiful sound, if anything can help me sleep it's that, one of my favorite sounds.
But then to get up the next morning, have to take a Golden Retriever outside in it and then try to dry his feet and body off..that's not so much fun.
Kind of like my diet...I love the end results, but to get there, isn't the best...but then again, it's just that it takes work, determination, and well stamina, something all of us have. And just think, once you reach that goal, what a rainbow you'll have!! Yep, this is a lifelong trip, but well worth everything you see along the way. All the cool experiences, all you've learned and done, and all the wonderful people you meet make this the BEST experience of your life and one you'll never forget.
So stick to it, keep on moving forward and if you stumble, so what, get up and move forward again, you'll get there, I can guarantee it!!
Besides, we're all here for, and with, you, you're not alone EVER. I think I'll call this my RAINBOW JOURNEY from now on, I like the sounds of that!
Well have a wonderful day everyone, and enjoy YOUR Rainbow Journey...it's a beautiful trip if you look at it with a different point of view!
