Yesterday I bought myself one of those tiny little one egg non stick pans. I love to make breakfast sandwiches but disliked having big, spread out or lumpy scrambled egg on my sandwich. This allows me to have a perfectly sized helping of eggs(or in my case, egg beaters) to fit on my little, round, sandwich thins.
I use Orowheat 100 % whole wheat sandwich thins, eggbeaters southwestern style, 1 teaspoon of mayo, a dollop of Dijon mustard, a morningstar prime griller veggie burger (I don't care for their veggie sausages) and fat free sharp cheese. Sometimes I will use real sausage for a treat. I am going to try Canadian bacon this week as well. Yum! *sighs contentedly*
Okay, logging off now...lots to do...

"Our destiny changes with our thoughts; we shall become what we wish to become, do what we wish to do, when our habitual thoughts correspond with our desires." - Orison Swett Marden
I'm working really hard at changing my thought patterns! While I can be very positive and almost disgustingly upbeat (ask my non morning friends! *LOL*), I can be equally negative and oh so down! It drives me crazy! One of my first goals this year is to work on controlling, if not ejecting, the negativity from my thoughts. It won't be easy, but I KNOW I can do it!
I started my new year today and at the moment am very excited about it. I need to make some serious changes in my life (Lifestyle?) to get where I WANT to be.
Goals this far:
Turn off the TV! No more having it on for noise or company. Unless there is some thing I really wish to watch, it is not going to be on. (This will be REALLY difficult for me, but I KNOW I can do it.)
"There is no failure except in no longer trying."
Everyday I will do some form of cardio for at least 15 minutes. Be it walking on the treadmill, dancing, walking in place when I do have the tv on, doing one of my DVDs. There is no excuse not to move during my day!
I am going to try yoga. I have a DVD of yoga for big girls(Along with the book) and I am going to see if I like it. I am going to give it a fair chance and not quit because I can't do something the first, second or third time I attempt it...
I will be much more conscious of what food I bring into the house. I will consciously choose healthy food and will jut as consciously decide to have a small treat every now and then. I will avoid bringing into my home, my known trigger foods.
I will track my food honestly every day.
This is a good start and I am truly excited. I just the little while it has taken me to type this down, I feel optimistic and a sense of joy for doing something good and positive.
So now, off to have a bite of breakfast and attack my room. I have a whole other set of goals that are not health related, however I know I will most certainly reap the benefits of feeling mentally and physically accomplished and contented that I did what I set out to do! Everything is connected, isn't it.
"The secret of success is constancy of purpose."
Have a magical day!

Hello and Happy New year! I have been gone for a bit. Went through a wee bit of a dark cloud for a while, still not sure what brought it about. My friend Everlearning thought it was holiday blues. It very well could have been. Even though I have spent Christmas by myself for the last several years and I handle it so much better now(I had a great Christmas day!), for some reason the days leading up to it were hard. It could have been y starting to review the past year and seriously considering my goals for the New Year. *shrugs* I have no idea, but I a back and I am raring to go.
I have set goals and while I didn't start today (I get paid on Friday and will go grocery shopping then and will explore my apartment complex's fitness room), I have been making positive signs to put around my home and desk at work, I have written everything down, started looking for pics and words for my vision board. I am jazzed, I am stoked, I am excited and more than anything else, I am determined! I reset my streaks and will see just how long I can go! I am going to (Spark) streak for a long time! *LOL*
2013 is going to be so Shiny! I also reset my "Tools to Life" program to the beginning. I want to see what new and amazing things I can learn about myself this time. (I completed the program in 2007 and so very much has happened since then. I am a very different person than I was then, so this will be a new adventure as well!
Life is good and getting better! I hope it is for you too!

Wow, I'm at a loss for words this morning. Nothing coherent anyway. I think I feel a ramble coming on...
I'm enjoying our weather tremendously, wore my coat and one of my scarves for the first time yesterday. About freaking time it acts like winter! *GRINS* I want today to fly by and at 5:00 it can slow way down until Monday! I hate the Cox commercial that plays off of Extreme Home Makeover. It is amazing to me what songs I will have in my head when I wake up in the morning...I mean really...The Smurfs theme? What the heck? I hate watching the news, it is so depressing. I wish they would spend at least as much time on good and inspiring stories as they do an everything else. I miss my mama and grandparents. I love my hot chocolate on cold mornings, it's like a warm hug from the inside. Received my first two Christmas cards yesterday, I was thrilled! I love it when my cat sleeps on her back...she's so fluffy. Kinda wish I could stay home today and enjoy the weather all snuggled down. I'm all caught up at work and my bosses are very happy with me! I love being here on SP and look forward everyday to seeing what is going on in our little corner of the 'verse.( which is FireFly slang for "Universe".) *
Well, that's about the extent of my blog for today! *LOL* Told you it was a ramble. That is pretty much what I have to try to tame when I am meditating! In any event, Happy Friday...Have a marvy day! Remember you are loved and we can do it!
