I found myself in a bit of a dreamy state today. I strive to remain mindful in my thinking, as I know that the thoughts I have are bound to show in my words and actions. As such, itís important that I remain focused on those goals Iíd like to see improvement in.
I so enjoy my fruits and veggies and look forward to getting eight veggies per day in this week in addition to the great fresh fruit I enjoy. I also give a hearty welcome back to my cottage cheese after a nearly three-week hiatus.
Look up at the heavens and see; gaze at the clouds so high above you.

May you find joy your free time.

Paradise is wherever you find your joy! Today I just happened to be in SW Florida, where lunch at Le Bistro brought great joy to the senses.
If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment.
May you find prosperity and contentment in your day.

Today was awesome! My early morning Weight Watcher weigh-in brought me another loss (a little over three sticks of butter off the body -- thatís the way I visualize my weight loss).
My husband and I worked together to take care of some household upgrades. He's into a W.E.B. Griffin presidential novel series, and I enjoyed hearing some of its storyline (I so love the name Svetlana). He knows how to enjoy his retirement and vacation, as he spends many hours each day enjoying a good book. It's unbelievable how fast he can go through books, often re-reading them three and four times.
Today was also the second day this week where I managed to stay within the recommended levels of seven nutrients (calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, calcium, and sodium). WooHoo! Meeting these goals included a light, but fun lunch with my husband at Ciciís Pizza Buffet. While any one element (ie calories) is fairly easy for me, it's meeting all of my nutrient goals (especially sodium) that bring the greatest reward. Salt is probably my biggest culprit, but I've more recently learned that my salt levels are at the baseline of normal.
On our return from Ciciís, the Ibis seemed to enjoy munching in our yard. A fun sight to see.
ďRule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.Ē (Genesis 1:28b)
Now to move a little more, while meeting the challenge of increasing our levels of fitness for the Teddy Bear team miles to Cancun, Mexico.
Hope you're having a great day, too!

Are you flying by the seat of your pants or seeing things with a little blurred vision?
Or is reaching your goals clearly in focus?
Shellzyís blog reminded me today that this is a great time to make sure your March goals are in focus. If so, make sure they meet the SMART standard: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. Here are my goals for March:
1) Shed three pounds
2) Average 30 minutes or more in daily cardio and strength training
3) Track daily
4) Average six or more servings of fruits and veggies daily
5) Drink at least 10 cups of water daily
6) Satisfy meeting all seven recommended levels of: calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, calcium, and sodium twice weekly
7) Spend at least 15 minutes daily in the study of Godís word
8) Go see a movie at the theatre (canít remember the last movie I saw)
9) Complete the knitting of one prayer shawl
I would love to be able to say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. " (2 Timothy 4:7)
Are your plans for reaching your goals in focus?

Here, my cousin and I enjoyed a neighborhood church, Salad Bar Luncheon. It doesnít take much for me to marry a passage and photo to bring aid in growing my measure of living faith.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Hope youíre making quality connections today while you reach your healthy goals!
