A passing , a feeling, a boost

Thursday, October 20, 2011

My 48 year old cousin passed away in his sleep. He had open heart surgery 4 years ago ,his heart was not doing good so they put him on a heart monitor about 4 days before he passed away. He died in his sleep. The one thing that brings us peace he was a Christian.
I treated my self last night .I had my hair put back to it;s natural color brunette. I had it blond which I thought was too heavily done for me. At first when I looked in the mirror when I came home was shocking to see all the dark hair enveloping my face, like it though makes my eyes stand out more. The weather is rainy & the skies are heavy with gray. However; I love rainy dark days they are so mysterious to me so cozy, they give me warmth inside my soul. Sunny days are nice also,but I love the feeling I have on these rainy gray days.

    So sorry about your cousin. I recently went back to brunnette after spending my summer blonde too. I have always thought of myself as "blonde" I was born that way, but I'm gradually growing to accept that I'm not blonde and haven't been for more than 20 years. I'm stubborn.

    Sorry to hear about your cousin but what you wrote is so true..he believed and now he is alive eternally with Jesus Christ. As the apostle Paul said "Oh death where is your sting?" He also said to die is to gain. I am glad to hear you are being comforted by the fact he is in heaven.

That is great you like your new hair color...a change is nice. I have natural brown hair and have blonde highlights that I really like as they help cover the gray that is coming in :)

Enjoy the rain and stay warm and dry!

Feeling Good

Thursday, October 13, 2011

I am in day 4 of going straight to the gym after work,feels good. My friend & I went out to dinner tonight,& I ate sensible, I had 2 whole wheat crackers before going out to dinner & water which helped also. I have a spring in my step , I wonder what I will have a month from now. My goal is a bounce, a weight loss,but more important to finally feel good about myself.I am going to the gym every day ,just like I go to work every day, I have to work to live, & I have to work out to live healthy!!!!!!!!!!!!

I met my Monday goals YippySkippy!!!!!!!!

Monday, October 10, 2011

I had goals to meet today & I met them all. I was getting anxious because I had to work until 7 Pm & I was real tired. I ate within my goals, I went to the gym only went 1 mile on the bike,but I had to take it easy had not gone for awhile, & need to watch what I do with my back & knee. I drank my 4 glasses of water , ( that is a start for me I do not drink much water ) I did my Mom's paper work. I felt good after I came home knowing I had accomplished what I set out to do This is going to be a day by day goal challenge I have to start somewhere,& I cannot jump into this with goals I know I will not meet I always make too big of a list & & when I do not do all them I feel like a failure. & give up.So I will set mini ones & work myself up to more each time. Tomorrow is another knew day to set another set of goals

    Mini goals are excellent!! In fact, sometimes they are more beneficial because people don't seem to be so overwhelmed with mini goals. Excellent job meeting them!

Setting small goals & meeting them

Sunday, October 09, 2011

For the last few months I have been under a lot of stress. For the first time since then my husband & I had a weekend together. Sat. morning we went for breakfast then on a 75 mile motorcycle ride throughout the country side , I took a lot of fall scenes with my camera. Went for dinner on the way home. Then today we went to a big lake with the canoe & had a nice picnic lunch. My husband stopped off for ice cream & I did not have any. When I packed the picnic lunch I had half of what I normally would eat ,& at the restaurant yesterday I bought part of my dinner home. I also made a goal when I came home today I would scrub the kitchen floor finish laundry, & wash the truck & car windows. I finished my goals I made. I usually say when I am away what I will do when I come home ,but I do not carry through with them. I want a knew beginning, the small goals I made with the food,& getting things done is a start. Tomorrow is another day I set my goals small this time.

Guess what made me smile today ?

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

I went for a walk around 4:00 pm today in the country & as I was walking I saw my first catapillar it was rust color in the middle & black on both ends, that was my first of the year to see one. Then I came upon a field of wild flowers & I counted 14 Monarch butterflies flitting among the flowers ,then I saw the 2 littlest dark yellow butterflies side by side ,then some little white ones. God's little creatures made me smile as I walked along today.

    I enjoy seeing squirrels and rabbits on some of my walks; I haven't seen any caterpillars yet.

    There's nothing more beautiful than God's creation. If He did such beautiful artwork with the butterflies, what about me and you.

    What made me smile today was when I was walking in the park this evening, I saw a hawk take flight. It was the most majestic I had ever seen.
