OK, it is only 8:10, and I have the whole day--to be good to me!!!! Thought I was going say something negative huh, like "mess up"!!! I am so done with messing up!!!!! OK, enough negativity!! There was a meeting at my church last night, and there were these cute little Halloween cookies and those cute little pumpkin candies, and I walked right past them and got my decaf coffee!!!! I felt so empowered.
Doggone this back. I am having a treatment this morning; my chiro. assured me, if he could not "fix" me, he would refer me to a neurologist, so for now I am trusting him.
I found this quote from Fred Rogers, you know, Mr. Roger's in the neighborhood. Here it is:
What really matters is not just winning, but helping other pople to win too!
I liked that--isn't that what Spark is all about--helping each other! I know all of you who comment on my blog is really helping me to be centered, and I appreciate all your words of encouragement! Have a blessed day!!

I slept pretty late this morning--8:30--guess I needed that! I probably slept so well cuz I wasn't stuffed!!! With my cut off time of 8:00 (and I was not hungry) that probably helped when I went to bed at 10PM!! I feel good and I am exiced--going to try to do some extra exercise today--just wished my back was not out of whack and will see my chir. tomorrow--visit #8. I do feel he is making a difference! I love this quote from my daily stand up devotional:
Lord, all of life is this way----a series of
choices: good or bad, right or wrong, healthy
or harmful........Lord I ask for discernment to
make the right choices and determination to
do what I have identified as the best for me.
I will need your help, Lord!!!!!
Make the right choice today too!!!!!!!!

OK--First of all I have to forgive myself for gaining some of my weight back--I think I "decided" since dad died a year ago 9/29--that I needed to be unhappy because he was gone--and inadvertently just started eating, not eating and so on and so on. I have only been hurting myself, and I am done with that--we all have choices daily to make, and I have made some not so good ones. Time to move on. I am only going to make room for positive comments to myself! I am so worth it--we all are. I want this, and I want it really badly!!!!!
I came across some inspirational readings--this one is for today:
Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm. Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:25-27 WOW--that really spoke to me!!
This one is from another daily devotional--today's date again!
But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal!!!!!!!!!! Philippians 3:13-14
This day is ours--to delight in--or to dread!! It is our choice! I am choosing to delight........until tomorrow, I hope you have a blessed and healthy day--make good choices so that 20 years from now, you can look back and say "WOW--I got it goin' on!!"

Since yesterday, I have been doing a lot of thinking about my life, and the choices I have made..........and of course my dear dad. I know he would want me to be healthy. He has complimented me always when he was alive on how healthy and fit I looked, and how pretty I was; I never really thought much about that till now, and it always meant a lot to me when he would say those nice things to me. I do NOT think he would think I looked so pretty or healthy right now though; it is time--time to move on and forget my past. I am ready for change. I have just been going through the motions, giving suggestions for weight loss and sometimes not following my own suggestions!!! I am vowing to lose 25# before January 1, 2009 and I will post daily till then just to keep myself accountable. I am so done feeling trapped--oh, ya, I think the back pain and restrictions put on me by my chiropractor has really opened my eyes even more--it is time to get healthy. There are still exercises I can do, even though, he does not want me aerobically walking or riding my stationery bike.........I can do the weight lifting aerobically with small weights, and I just bought a stability ball, that I can use for exercise as well. I am just going to do it!!!!!!

I am feeling down today; a year ago dad left this earth and went to heaven. I still miss him a lot. We celebrated his life yesterday with my mom--all of us kids and spouses (7 of us total). We went to mass at mom's church. She really cannot get out without help as she uses a walker, so it was nice to get her out. We had a nice dinner prepared by all of us and shared our favorite memories of dad. It was a nice day..........I just felt like sharing this. I know time heals the pain--it is just all coming back today. I was with him when he passed on--so was my mom and my sis. I was reading Psalm 23 and within minutes, he left us. It was like he was telling us "Finally someone reads from the Bible"!!!!!!! I am so glad I have such happy memories of him. Blessings to all of you!
