I am so proud of this team, I think everyone, is trying so hard, and working so well, as a team. For me, some days are better then others, like it is for other Butterfly's, I'm sure. It is so important, not to let it get you down, when you know you didn't do what you wanted/were suppose to do. We need to forgive ourselves, and move on to the next meal or the next group of exercise, or the acceptence, of what is going on, in ones family.
Sometimes, life is not a bowl of cherries, but we pick up the cards and make a complete deck, again and go forward. Each time we do this, we get a moment, even if it's for a brief second. Hold on to it, clasp it, it's yours, it's mine, it's ours. Together we can do this! We are the Butterfly's and were soaring as high as we can, and were doing our best. Give yourself a hug, and if you have someone close by give that person a hug and tell them you love them.
One never knows what is going to happen from one day to the next. Live life to the fullest, enjoy all you can, smile when you can and wipe away the tears, as soon as you can.
Your all special to me, thank you for being here for me, today!

I rephased an e-mail this morning, and was amazed it what it said and want to share
WATER (I will put it in my own words, due to copyrighted material, possibly)
#1. ( possibly) 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated..
#2. In 37% of Americans,(people often think they are hungry, instead of thirsty, because of the weaken state of the mechanism, that tells us this)
#3. MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.
(this alone, will effect weight lost)
#4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs
#5. Lack of water, may cause, daytime fatigue.
#6. 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain
for up to 80% of sufferers.
#7. A mere 2% drop in body water cancaise fuzzy short-term
memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on
the computer screen or on a printed page.
#8.. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily can decrease the risk of
colon cancer by 45%, plus it may slash the risk of breast
cancer by 79%., we may be 50% less likely to develop
Are you drinking the amount of water
you should drink every day?
This has helped me to continue to remember to drink my water!

Feeling real good about my food today!
Had a dull headache for three days, but working through it, with relaxation, and prayer.
Doing crunches, deep breathing, & keeping track on sugar levels.
Not a lot going on, but wanted to make a short blog!

I'm feeling great, tonight. My mind is excited, full of ideas for the coming week.
I realized, I need to
Drink more water, to lose weight about 180-200 ounces a day
Eat meat,poultry, fish meals with my veggies
Eat my flaxseed bread, for filling full
Continue with my crunches
Continue with my wall pushups
Continue with my isometrics
Continue with my deep breathing, to bring in enough oxygen, so my body could work properly.
Keep track of my glucose numbers , have something on hand for low glucose level, when needed, that isn't high in calories. (not real sugar, unless emergency)
I think that will keep me quite busy, this week coming up. I have something, I'm challenging myself to do also: Climb a few steps up and back down in my apartment complex hallway. Have not climbed stairs in years, and feel, I may be able to. If I can, I want to do this on a regular basis, also.
Life is Good!

The first week of the challenge is coming to an end. We are excited about, weighing, and posting, our weight tomorrow. We have been crunching and drinking water, we have been making better food choices, we have been doing other forms of activities, that interest us, we have been making contact with each other, and we should feel great tonight.
It's been a busy week. An Active week. It's had time consuming moments, or maybe even hours, trying to figure out what to do. Some needed to go shopping, get the right foods in. Some had to buy workout shoes.
Whatever it has taken, we have been doing. I think this challenge is sensational, at keeping people involved. It is motivating, stimulating, and downright exciting.
Every one involved is making it succeed, cheers to a job done well!
Director, Leaders, Team Members, It takes all of us to win at this battle, of weight lost, and I have a feeling, we lost a lot of weight this week. Remember, every ounce counts, its a team effort, and competing in team form makes it more exciting.
Onward and Downward, this week, next week, and all the weeks ahead of us!
