Finding a solution to MY problem

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

Well, I'm near the end of stage three and my "spark task" is to find my "trigger" food. The food that get's me into trouble. Guess what gang..... yep, it is WINE.
So, I am going to see just how important wine is to me. (We are talking about the rest of my healthy life here!)
1. I am going to go without wine for as long as I can - with a goal of two weeks of no wine - to prove to myself that I am in control here.
2. Once that is over, I intend to limit myself to no more than one glass every three days - with a three glass maximum during special, social events (that we tend to have, it seems, once a week!) - that is a maximum of 4 to 5 glasses of wine for the week, abouit 22 oz. about 1,760 calories for the week - which I intend to substitute for treats - to keep my total calorie intake in line!
I am in a two month long plateau (actually up and down) and I am not satisfied still being in the obesse range in the BMI chart! A 50 lb weight loss is great so far, but it does not make for total success, yet!

  


Life and Death - Winning and Loosing

Monday, May 29, 2006

If there was no death, life would not be very precious.

Without loss, winning would not be the same.

I treat my decision to get healthy as a LIFE decision and treat loosing as an unacceptable option. I feel that if I loose in my objective for a healthy life, I will surely die.... in that my life would no longe be precious.

  


Special poem

Sunday, May 21, 2006

This Moment

I may never see tomorrow; there's no written guarantee,

And things that happened yesterday belong to history,

I cannot predict the future, I cannot change the past, I have just the present moment, I must treat it as my last,

I must use this moment wisely for it soon will pass away, and be lost to me forever as part of yesterday,

I must exercise compassion, help the fallen to their feet,

Be a friend unto the friendless, make an empty life complete,

The unkind things I do today may never be undone,

And friendships that I fail to win may nevermore be won,

I may not have another chance on bended knee to pray, And thank God with humble heart for giving me this day.

E--eating unhealthy is not wise
M--much society will tell us lies
O--open the eyes that we may see
T--true living healthy we can be
I--internal turmoil from time to time
O--one can live healthy, which aint a crime
N--never give up, we will win in time
A--all for one and one for all
L--learn to eat healthy and we will not fall.

E--express yourself in other ways
A--away with the Twinkies and Frito Lays
T--train ourselves daily to eat what is right
I--increase our exercises,though it may be a fright
N--never quit but keep on fighting
G--grace and peace to all who are uniting.

Together we can encourage each other in our fight to lose weight...And with the Lord's help--we will win in the end.

from Words of Wisdom, Tracy (RainClouds)

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company ...a church ...a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past ...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.

We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude ...I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes.
-Charles Swindoll
