Valentine Challenge

Thursday, January 03, 2013

My 6 week Valentine challenge is not the typical goals. Oh sure, I'll be eating right, getting my water, exercising, etc. Those have become habits. My goals are to care better for myself mentally. I have to learn that I am a special person and God has me on this earth for a purpose. I have to learn that it is ok to love myself.

I am devoting the next 6 weeks to healing and moving forward. Stress just needs to be dealt with better. Stress does not help our hearts. What better time than now?

I may have mentioned this, but one day I was watching a cooking show. A set of twins were guests. I noticed how they complimented each other. They were so alike that if they were negative they were hurting the other twin. That struck me. I need to have an imaginary twin. I wouldn't hurt my twin so why do I belittle myself?

Another goal is to declutter the house. That will be a stress buster, too. I don't know where the stuff comes from. Seems like I worked on this over the summer.

In 6 weeks I'm going to be a happier, heart healthier person.

    Great goals! I am with you on that de-cluttering goal. I plan to do 15 minutes at least 5 times per week. I figure if I get started it will end up being more than 15 minutes too. emoticon

How to Un-do a Mistake

Sunday, December 30, 2012

This morning I was reading a really nice blog on my iphone. I don't know what I did, but I somehow reported an inappropriate blog. I feel terrible. Is there a way to un-do it?

    Ooops, I've done it too on occasion and I figured that some one from spark would check it out and not find any thing wrong with it and pay no further attention

    I am so sorry. I wish there is undo button on it. But you will be fine. Just don't think much about it. It was just a mistake and we can't do anything about it.

    I can't imagine that you would do anything inappropriate, but maybe you could send them a little goodie with an apology!!

    I'm sure that button gets clicked by mistake quite often, especially on a phone. They should add a warning after you hit it asking "Are you sure you want to report this blog?" That would likely save them a lot of time in the long run and help save use from accidentally reporting something.

Have a great day!

We Got the Gift

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Of course nobody knows when Jesus was born exactly. Scholars tell us we have it all wrong. That's not the point. The point is we were given a miraculous gift. One that will endure forever. It's up to you to accept the gift or decline it. When we accept it, we celebrate the birth, death and resurrection every day in our hearts and souls.

Amen

    The exact day we celebrate His birth is not important, it is that we remember his birthday and who He is!

Reset & Press On

Sunday, December 23, 2012

I reset my program yesterday, started Beachbody along with exercising with Leslie Sansone. Today I rejoined SparkCoach. Did you know they have a program that doesn't start at Day One? It motivates and challenges.

My fridge is stocked with fresh fruits and vegs. The pantry is stocked with whole grains and other great things.

I still haven't got to sit down with hubby for a menu plan, but that is going to happen one way or the other today.

Determinated to lose the other half of the weight I set out to lose.

Another skunk

Saturday, December 08, 2012

About 10 days ago my border collie encountered a skunk. Tonight she did it again. Hubby has been held over in Salt Lake City. Lucky him getting a break. For me it takes away any desire to eat. Take heed, diet industry. The answer is right under our noses.

If you go to google and type in Skunk Antidote you will find something that
will work... it uses three ingredients..3% hydrogen peroxide baking soda
and dish soap Dawn is suggested you will have to check the amounts on-line..... judging by the comments it seems to work. Good Luck.

    Oh my gosh. I had almost forgotten how our dogs used to love to harass skunks and get sprayed often when we lived out in the woods in Tennessee. Yuck, it's really bad. Hope it goes away soon, but I can understand the dieting benefits of it!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh no! Once you smell a skunk you never forget it and always know immediately what it is. Sorry your dog had to be a dummy and try it again. Twice was twice too many!Good luck with the cleaning process.
