Uh-Oh . . . Oh Well . . . Oh YES!

Monday, January 30, 2012

I'm running late to leave for strength training group.

Uh-Oh! My workout pants are in the washer.

Oh well. No choice but to wear these old sweats in the bottom of the drawer---- but I know they're too small, pretty tight. Oh well, my shirt is long to cover it.

Hey . . . these pants are not too small any more! They fit with room to spare! Oh YES!

....On not letting the laundry stop you.
This happened for a reason... and a great reason... to show you that your actions are paying off.

    That's great!!! I once almost let not having a clean workout bra keep me from my exercise but then realized that I couldn't let that stop me! (I wore a regular bra that day). Here's to not letting anything stand in your way, and as a result, you were rewarded by the reminder that you're body is shrinking!! :)

On Store Shelf --- Had to Laugh

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Finally ---- truth in labelling!!



For years research has shown that many processed foods are engineered to make us want more and buy more. Now it's right in the name!!

    I guess the processed food industry feels confident enough that they can finally be honest with us. Maybe we can still ding them on the spelling? emoticon

A Big Little Classic

Saturday, January 21, 2012

I have a treasured Spark friend who has supported me from the beginning of this Spark journey. She is noticing some ways in which we're not as young as we used to be. I wanted to offer an alternate image that came to mind:


This 1955 Chevy Bel-Air has a lot of years on her, but she is still elegant, classy, and a joy to have around!

    What a gorgeous car . . . and I remember my father driving a very similar one (dark green though . . . )!

    Ahh....yes, you are right FL. Here is one of my favorite tricks, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." We will always need each other because no matter how many bits of wisdom we have in our toolbox, we seem to forget them when we need them most.

The beauty about classics is that they are timeless. They are not trendy, they don't go out of style, they are simply timeless treasures. Thank you emoticon

Behave Your Way to Success

Friday, January 20, 2012

"There comes a time in the healing process where you have to just behave your way to success. You're experiencing such an onslaught of emotion, and I have empathy for that, I really do. But you have to make a choice to do the things you need to do. You have to put one foot in front of the other and behave your way into it."

Dr. Phil McGraw
