Preparing Your Mind

Sunday, November 28, 2010



Happy Sunday Everyone!!! emoticon

How are you doing today Spark Friends? emoticon

I was just thinking about preparation. Being prepared in the mind to handle the "new" me. I used to almost always sabotage my success by not being prepared for the change inside and out and that's why I gained weight back and that's why I still struggled with a poor self image.

We have to work on our thoughts about ourselves and who we are becoming. I think this is a vital part of the lifestyle change. We can say we love our self and love on ourselves in that mirror all the day long but we have to believe our words and in the outcome. emoticon

Picture yourself being healthy and whole in every way. Continually see yourself with the desired weight gone. Have faith in what you are doing and truly believe that you can and will do it. Prepare your mind for success.

That's what my N O W mean No Other Way! We are a successful group of people and let's not stop until we get to the desired end and then keep on for Life!

God bless you Sunday!

NEW BEGINNINGS...

Monday, November 22, 2010

I have decided that TODAY is a time for NEW BEGINNINGS. emoticon

I have been blessed to see the start of another great year and I am so HAPPY! emoticon

The BEST is yet to come. That's what I am striving for is the BEST. emoticon

Nothing is impossible for me to achieve or become. emoticon

I am focused and know that it takes consistency in every area of my life to be a GREAT SUCCESS! emoticon

No matter what happened yesterday...TODAY is NOW! emoticon

Don't look at what you can't do or don't see or don't have; look at what you can do and what you can see and what you do have. emoticon

This journey is not getting me...I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR BECAUSE OF JESUS! emoticon

I WIN! emoticon

Enjoy your Monday!!!
Blessings to All!

MY BIRTHDAY IS NOVEMBER 22...WOOHOO!!!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

OK...I'm a little excited. More this year than last but last year was a Milestone birthday if you want to call it that. But even though I was blessed to still be here and perking I was not as HAPPY emoticon as I am now. I truly have a NEW mindset on things. I am listening to God's Leading and This has made a valuable difference in my life. emoticon

So what plans do you have for next week? Let me show you what I plan to prepare. Just a rough draft.

Roasted Turkey
Cornbread Dressing (I rarely stuff a bird) May add some new stuff for a change.
Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potato Pie
Green Beans
Gooey Butter Cake(Don't know which one I will prepare...maybe lemon)
Baked Sweet Potato(For Myself)
Black Eyed Peas(These babies barely nudge my blood sugar and that's a great thing.)
Rolls(Maybe...lol)
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I will make them as healthy as possible but I still plan to eat in moderation. My daughter should be there and I don't know who else. My relatives from home have not confirmed as of today so that's up in the air. Turkeys were on sale for .29 cents a pound on Sunday. That means I saw a giant turkey for $6 and some change. What a bargain. You know how Walmart have those food wars. lol I'm looking on a great deal on sweet potatoes. .25 cents a pound anyone? lol

Ok...Remember I said that's a rough draft. Plenty of water will be available and Tea...unsweetened. I pray you all have a great weekend and enjoy each day.

Not bragging about my birthday but I felt like sharing...early. Just in case I don't get to this library. It's cold here and I will never complain about the heat here again.
That's word! emoticon

Still doing good and working that knee more. Another Physical Therapy session Friday. Then next Tuesday. They working me but it will be worth it.

Enjoy your Thursday!!!

    Happy BIRTHDAY TO YOU.
Happy BIRTHDAY TO YOU..
Happy BIRTHDAY dear DEBBBBBBBBB...I enjoyed your blog and wish you the very best this year. My birthday is on the 24th and I, like yourself, feel very special and different this year. I believe we took back our power and know that we can succeed and know that on our down days we have the help of each other --- we are planning and that leads to success.

On another note, your menu sounds deelish! I hope you really enjoy your week.

BTW, sweet deal on the turkey...who can live without a sweet potato pie?

    Me too...I'm sending WARM birthday greetings to you early!!!

Your meal rough draft sounds deelish...Mmmm! I am not a cook; but I plan to try to make the DRESSING for our family get together at my niece's. The regular cook (my older sister) will be out of town visiting our mother. So my niece and her hubbie and their two boys (ages 4 and 6) will be winging it... We may end up at Micky Dee's.(but we will never tell.)

Enjoy your Thanksgiving as well. Celebrate your birthday with a SPARK!!!
