My breakfast

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Went to Farmers Market this morning and bought a couple Huckleberry muffins. I took them to my sister's house and we had breakfast together. Now I am home to get some work done around my house.


A Motto to Live By

Sunday, November 20, 2011

When the world gets you down,
put things in perspective.
Move ahead in a positive way;
don't allow yourself to become mired
in a negative view.
See things for what they really are.
Don't let the little things get in the way.
Do what you can, however you can,
with the resources you have available
to you.
Don't sell yourself short;
you have the power within you
to change what needs changing.
Face the situation with the resolve
to remedy it; do what you need to do
to put it behind you.
Move ahead in the direction of happiness;
go for your dreams
and reach for your star
And remember who's in
the driver's seat: you are,
Collin McCarty

    Check out the book, Buddha's Brain. It essentially says that thinking and acting the way you have described here can actually change your brain to make it easier and easier to have these habits of mind.

Starting Over - Never Give UP

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

My previous blog entry stated how discouraged I was through and after the holidays. This blog is to say I am starting over from step 1 of admitting I have an eating problem and I am going to do what I need to do to overcome the obstacles in front of me. One obstacle is my recliner and the other is I can't seem to keep my mouth shut. LOL I have recently reset my weight goals and purchased some exercise videos in hopes that I can start over and do it right this time. I have also started reading The Spark along with my other reading material and they are helping with the motivation I need to keep on the straight and narrow. I am also listening to postive reinforcement cd's that will help me eliminate my negative thinking, which has gotten pretty bad.

At first I was ashamed to admit I had gained weight through the holidays and had to start over and then I realized there is NOTHING to be ashamed about. I just need to "Jump up out of my attitude" and get going again and that is what I am going to try and do.
I am a positive person, & I am a thin and happy person.

    Oh I totally blew it at the holidays....just take it a meal at a time & don't look back, that's my plan. What's done is done, on to the next moment.

    That's right!!! There's nothing to be ashamed of! Begin again and take small steps toward your goal..eventually you'll get there. Make the recliner a reward or You get to hop into that recliner only after you do your exersizes or something. You'll find the way that works for you! Keep sparkin'! emoticon

Glad the Holidays are over

Saturday, January 02, 2010

Last summer I joined Spark People and thought I was doing pretty good then all of a sudden I had the feeling that I just didn't give a damn. I really had a tough time through the holidays and am really glad they are over. I am going to try and get back into the Spark of things. I even joined a gym and not sure how much I can use it with my Fibrymyalgia but will give it a try since it is on a month to month basis. I put on several pound over the last few months and the frustration of haveing to take them and many more off is very depressing. Even on my meds everything seems depressing.
