I love having an organized kitchen!
I guess it really is organized!
My niece and her husband are visiting and she commented that it was the most organized kitchen she had ever seen!
Now if I can just get the rest of the house whipped into shape!!!

Tomorrow is a big deal for me! As I checked into SP this morning I look for that streak number and today it's 99! It seems impossible, but it's true. I have checked in everyday, and tomorrow will mark my 100th day of checking in!
That simple, but vital action, has made a huge difference for me. When I started the streak, I had no idea the benefits would be so incredible.
I'm a believer in the statement that by small and simple things, great things can come to pass. Checking in consistently is a good example of that.
I have become so much more focused, and realistic since checking in everyday. I have not always made the best food choices, but when I have not, I have pulled in the reins much more quickly than ever before.... and that is a big step for this Sparkster!
Checking in has kept me positive, and that is critical for I think most everyone here to be successful in this journey to a healthier and fitter life. I make sure I give myself a pep talk each day, evaluate my successes and where I can make improvements, and also find an inspiring quote each day. In addition I read success stories keeps that positive flow going!
I apologize for repeating some of the same thoughts from previous blogs, but I feel this is worth repeating!
Big question.... what to do to celebrate my 100 day streak? I'm thinking it's time to download some fun workout music!!! :-)

I was thinking today about a story my mom told me about myself when I was about 3 years old.
I was a devoted thumb sucker. Nothing would part me from that thumb.
When my mom was getting me ready to go to a doctor appointment, I was busy sucking that thumb and she said, " Oh Judy, What would Dr. Rosen say?"
I immediately pulled it out and stated, "I'm not gonna do it anymore".
That 3 year old Judy didn't! My mom would hear me whimper and cry in my sleep as I would start to suck that thumb and then pull it away.... in my sleep! She said she just wanted to put it in for me, it made her feel so bad to see me going through that withdrawal process!
There have been times in this weight loss journey that I wondered where that strength was... certainly if I had the determination as a 3 year old to stick to a change in behavior I could do it again... couldn't I?
Well, it's just not so black and white with eating. However, with the information I have learned on this website, and the inspiration of seeing others meet their challenges, I have tapped into that determination I had as a 3 year old.
Yep, I'm feeling good.
Yep, I know I know this is a constant effort to do those things that keep me on track. By golly, I'm sticking to my guns! I am just as strong willed now as I was decades ago!

I looked back and saw my blog about my husband being a bit of a saboteur. As I think back and how I have done these past few months, I think I was the one chiefly responsible for his bit of food pushing.
I have checked in with SP consistently now for over 3 months, and guess what???? I have been more consistent in my healthy habits and choices!!! Go figure!
I have also made the effort to keep my cute husband in the loop about my goals and desires and he has been very supportive. Lots to celebrate for sure!
It's by small and simple things that great things come to pass! Making smart food choices, drinking enough water, staying active, getting enough sleep, and keeping that positive mindset nourished all adds up to SUCCESS!!!
Yep, I'm feeling good.... really good! GO JUDY!!!
