Consistency

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

What I need is a little consistency. My hubby is buying me my own tablet or an I pad for Christmas. Any suggestions or likes and dislikes on a particular one.? It will help me to be more consistent here, thus making it to where I have fewer excuses. I need to use the trackers and don't always have access to his iPad. I need to get serious about my weight loss again. It all came from thinking I could do it on my own. I have proved to myself so many times that I cannot. This next year I do hope consistency will take me where I want to go. It works in other areas of my life just fine. I have no doubt it will here as well!

    I prefer the iPad. If your hubby already has one, you can share apps easily without having to buy again.

Change My Best Friend

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Well,hubby back from the hunt. Didn't see anything, may go out again later during the holidays. I got caught up on sleep while he was gone. My son will be home on Tuesday. I sure do miss him and rarely get to see him any more. You can never see how your life will turn out. If we could, we might not want to go where it takes us. I know I would have thought long and hard about it, and probably would have refused what lay ahead for me. But I am happy with where I am for the most part. Adversity has made me compassionate and loving in ways I never could have foreseen. I don't ever want to repeat where I have been, but I do hope I can embrace change with anticipation next time. I am stronger and happier because of change. It is my friend.

Unfortunately, it seems we grow and learn the most during adverse times.

My Quest

Sunday, December 14, 2014

The joy and freedom we desire is between our ears and In our hearts.We have all been hurt by something I life. It's what we do with that hurt that determines everything else. If we are honest, many of us will say that we eat because of pain more than just because we need the fuel. Discovering what that hurt is will determine the key. Perhaps we need to forgive someone,forgive ourselves.It has been said that stress makes us sick. At the heart of stress is hurt of one sort or another. At the core is what we think. Some sickness has other origins,but there is freedom offered us there as well.We must look to the root cause and it is my belief that most doctors won't have a clue what is in our hearts and only treat the symptoms.I Am healthier than ever before except for my weight.I am I the process of discovering what is the root of my problem. I know I eat to be social and don't want to offend anyone by not eating. But the why is still undiscovered. I am on a quest.

Happy!

Saturday, December 13, 2014

This has been a good week. Got in five days of exercise and watched my weight and calorie intake. I Am enjoying my new kitty and he is adjusting to the dogs. It is good to be back on here and doing what I know I need to to reach the goals I want to reach. It's not the big things that matter but all the little ones. I am happy. There is little I could wish for at this point. Hope you can get to this same point one decision at a time.

I listed 3 goals for this day and I successfully reached all 3. Now, that makes me happy! Just getting closer to my goals puts me in a great mood.
Keep Sparking!

Not Just Routine!

Friday, December 12, 2014

Well, I have found how important routine is to my well being and feelings of accomplishment. When I get out of my routine, my life falls apart. Routine can be healing. If I don't know where to start a sense of normality can be found just in establishing a routine. I don't have to think about what comes next. Even my animals are happier with routine. They get upset when my routine is disrupted. I will be starting my exercise I a few minutes. I am up to a pretty regular four days a week. I am healthier with a routine as well. I sleep better and feel better. I hope that you can also find comfort and productivity in routine.
