Four For Four

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Four must be my lucky number. I've lost 4 pounds a month for the past 4 months.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I said to my DH "It takes a lot of patience to lose a lot of weight at a rate of one pound per week." DH said to me "And a lot of hard work." I'm lucky to have a supportive spouse.

    I have never heard or seen a COLOR RUN before and that looks Awesome! I would even try that one! It looks like so much fun, and yes, it is exercise, but the FUN is all I can see on your faces.

Thanks for sharing, wish I was able to join in....who knows, next year?!?!?!?!?!
I may be able to post some pictures of a Color Run, I might find and join.

Hugs,

    The Happiest 5K on the Planet? You, your niece and your sister are living proof that it is what it says it is! You all should do an ad promo this time next year - to recruit some new runners. The happiness can clearly be seen on your faces and real - honest-to-goodness advertising doesn't get any better than that. It just doesn't! Yeah, I'd say The Happy 5K would pull in double or triple the number of participants if the three of you did a nice billboard or television spot. You make it look like so much fun! You make it look so easy-peazy! And best of all. . . .you look so incredibly happy! So nice to see!!!! Thanks for sharing!

This Year...

Friday, September 20, 2013

This Year I Want To... Eat More Vegetables.

Vegetables are low-calorie, filler up, health foods and key to weight loss.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


This Year I Want To... Celebrate More.

YOLO -- You Only Live Once! I want to invite family/friends over more often. I want to take more mini vacations. I want to make a big deal out of the holidays. I want to check something off my bucket list.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


This Year I Want To... Create My Own Retreat.

I want to clean my spare bedroom and decorate it with inspirational pictures and comfortable furniture. I want to create a peaceful place to read, relax, meditate, and just be me!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Your Turn...

    September 20th? Really? You posted this 8 days ago? How on earth did I miss it? Well, at least I saw it today and thank goodness for that! What a happy, happy post! Love it!!!

I want to love my body! I want to eat veggies and fruits and whole grains and drink more water cause those are all ways I can love my body well. I want to love my mind! I want to meditate and pray and do yoga and read more and write more cause those are all ways I can love my mind well. I want to love my soul! I want to listen to more music and visit more museums and connect with more people and visit more churches or temples or synagouges and be still and quiet so I can better hear the voice of God cause those are all ways I can love my soul well.

I want to dance!

I want to travel!

I want to skydive!

I want to ride the rapids in a raft!

I want to swim in the ocean!

I want to play with the dolphins!

I want to climb a mountain. . . or at least a hill!

I want to write a book, have it published and then learn that it made the New York Times bestseller list!

Yeah, I want all that. Big, big bucket list! Today, I want to live in gratitude, love my husband well and feel the blessings all around.

Thanks for inspiring me, Dee. I got so much out of this!!! Hope you're doing awesome! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I am totally convinced now that we are kindred spirits! Yes to everything you wrote! I have a room which I called mine, but due to neglect it turned into a catch all room. I've got it partially cleaned out, now to finish cleaning it. I am going to get it all cleaned out, paint it a fun color, paint the bookcases so they all match, get me a comfy chair, and put my favorite things in it. Thanks for the inspiration! Now that I am not working there is no excuse not to get this done, to exercise daily, to plan out & fix healthy healthy meals, to get my spare bedroom fixed up so the grand kids have a place to nap when they are here. Thanks for being the catalyst to light my fire to get these things done.

By the way Dee, I am so excited and happy for you and all that you have accomplished this last year. You have accomplished amazing things! You my dear are fantastic! It's great having a kindred spirit like you!

In The Rain

Sunday, September 15, 2013

We've all heard of "singing in the rain"...

Today I was bicycle riding in the rain! emoticon emoticon emoticon

All during the work week, I was looking at my bicycle and promising myself, this weekend I would have time to ride. I didn't let a little rain stop me!!!

When I was done, I wiped down my bicycle with a clean cloth. I need to take care of my equipment if I want it to work for me!
emoticon (Catch the double meaning?)




And if you can do it in a pretty dress with friends... all the better!! Right Jules?


emoticon emoticon emoticon
This morning I opened two SP goodies and both were from friends telling me I make a difference in their lives and that have a contagious zest for life!
" I've got sunshine on a cloudy day..." emoticon

I'm grateful to have good friends with me on the Journey to Healthy 'n Fit! They warm my heart and make me smile and help me to be a better person.

Monday Monday

Monday, September 09, 2013

It's Monday and I'm feeling fine. Got my 8 hours of sleep last night. It makes a big difference in how I feel this morning!
emoticon emoticon

I caught my reflection in the window of the YMCA. Although I've already lost 30 pounds, I'm still a very short round woman. I may not grow taller, but I'm definitely going to get slimmer. I said to myself "Don't worry, this is only a temporary shape."
emoticon

I smiled at everyone I saw at the YMCA. You know what? Everyone smiled back at me! Enjoy a wonderful Monday!!

    Those folks at the "y" smiled cause - how could they not? You - your smile - just lit up the room! I'm certain of that. You know how I know? Cause you lite up this room - our room - the spark room - every single time you enter! And if you lite things up like that around here, I can only imagine how much better you do it in person! You're just one of those people, Dee . . . you smile. . . and the whole world smiles with you! So happy I met you and now have the privilege to call you "friend". emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
