Greener on the other side????

Saturday, August 04, 2007

Life is funny!!! Reading today's reflection really made me think alot. There is always peole who try or have to keep up with the Joneses instead of really apprecaiating what they already have. I have co-workers that it is about how much money you have in the bank, or what possessions they have, homes, upgrades etc.... They act happy in front of you but inside they are unhappy. It is because they aren't really filling their hearts and lives with nurishment they need for their soul.

Riches come in the forms of money, love, etc.

How rich are you??? I feel very rich, I have everything in my life I need, a loving husband, family, friends, pets, and just plain love life. I enjoy each day as best as I can, making the best decisions I can and leave the rest in GOD's hand. I know he will never give me more than I can handle. I know if it feels like their is no way out of a prob lem, he'll always open the door or window a crack so I can breathe and move on.

Take time and reflect of the riches you have in your life!!! I have!! I AM LOVED!


Pleasing everyone ??? YIKES???

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

- Bill Cosby, comedian

How many of us try and make everyone happy but ourselves? I know I have fallen into this rout. It down right puts everyone first but ourselves!!!

Being married and or a caregiver to a family member it can be easy to fall into the rout of just going along and putting your feelings, needs and wants a side. Every so often I fall into this rout, but lately I am learning how to put myself up on top instead of below. I honestly believe that is why I am having success this time around with my weightloss. I have asked my husband not to eat in bed (he's a bedtime snacker-loves candy, cookies and little debbies). Drives me nuts because I smell it and want to eat sweets. So, he has kept his bed time snacking to a minimum. If you don't ask you may not get what you want. Learn to ask, all that can happen is a no or you'll get what you want. You wont know til you ask for the things you want. I had a hard time asking at first now it is getting easier. For some reason, I dig this thought I was being selfish for putting me first but a good friend of mine told me if you don't put yourself first who will, that only says to people you are not worth it. So I put me first, by loving me to do and get to my journey!!

Do you do that??


Carpe diem

Friday, July 20, 2007

Celebrate we will, because life is short but sweet for certain.

- Dave Matthews Band

Carpe diem--SEIZE THE DAY!!! Live life to its fullest each and everyday!!

My favorit quote is from Eleonor D. Roosevelt and she wrote "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent"

How true this is, the only person that can ruin you day is yourself!! I wake up and know each day that it is up to me to make my day the best I can, sometimes is harder than others but it is up to me to make good choices and live. I have so much to be thankful for a loving husband and family. My little munchkins names, Baby, Mongo and Missy, they bring me great joy each day. As a matter of fact they start my morning out each day with love nudges and they speak their love in meows!! My husband is a great and wonderful man. He makes me feel so very loved and at times he may not see what greatness and good he does and how it effects me daily but there is so much good in him that I would do anything and everything for him!!! I love him so!! My friends I chose are awesome, if I meet someone that I feel is not sincere or even negative I distance myself from them, there is no room for negativity in life. I want positive people in my life. I know that we all experience times of lowness but it is up to us to LOVE ourselves enough to LIVE.




Getting Specific on your goals!!

Saturday, July 14, 2007

I have a goal to get 10% off by the end of September, so far i'm on target!

    You can do it! We both can.

And thanks for the reminder about salads and such. I actually thought of it for dinner tonight and I got out a HUGE bowl and really made myself a big salad with lots of lettuce and spinach and grated carrots. I added an ounce of grated cheese and a boiled egg along with lots of grape tomatoes and a few croutons with fat free dressing. It made a huge difference in how I was feeling.

I feel like I can get through the night tonight and if I have a snack I'll keep it under 100-150 calories and as low fat as possible.

I'm so glad you are still around, its good to "see" you.

Who is standing in your way? -Daily Reflection.

Friday, July 06, 2007

I am! I must take responsiblity for the times I stand in my way of my weightloss jouney. I would be lying to say that it doesn't happen or that I am perfect because I am not.

On those days I overeat in private to pacify my emotions that may lead me to binge, those days I am the one standing in my way!! I make the choice to eat or binge instead of sharing my emotions. I am the one making the bad choice or good choice so how I handle my emotions by the choices I make is up to me. NO one else can be blamed. I have a loving and supportive husband and family, so i have no one attempting to sabbatoge my success but myself. So when those painful moments attack me I will reach out and love myself enough to make the right choice and call a friend, family member or even journal it to stop the distructive behavior.

The learning never stops unless we allow it to.
