Seven Weeks Until the First Day of Spring--Where will I be?

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Yay! I believe we are close to half way through winter.

Another 49 days and Spring will arrive.

Where will I be? What can I choose for myself for the following 49 days OR 7 weeks?

I CAN choose to continue with my commitment to living a healthy life. I want that. I deserve that.

Sooooo, I commit to being a non-smoker.


I commit to exercising regularly for at least 15 minutes each day.


I commit to drinking at least 8 X 8 ounce glasses of water each day.


I commit to healthy eating each day. emoticon emoticon

I am quite sure at the end of these 49 days, I'll feel like a winner who is 3.5 to 7 pounds lighter.

I 'll feel stronger and healthier and happy knowing...


Afterall, the first day of Spring IS March 20, 2013 and it will come.

I would like to be there: happier, healthier and lighter.

Wish me luck, as I wish you all the best on your journey to welcoming Spring.

Little by Little and It All Adds Up to WOOHOO!

Friday, January 25, 2013

Wow! I am having such a gigantic WOOHOO Day.

I am down 5 pounds,

I have exercised every day this year,

I am up to 45 minutes of Nordic Walking,

I quit smoking December 7, 2012 and have remained quit,


My most pleasing accomplishment--four binge-free days.

YAY! Me.

YES I CAN DO THIS!...and I will...

One day at a time,

One step at a time,

One meal at a time,

One glass of water at a time,

Thank you SPARKPEOPLE.com--together we can make it happen.

I woke up this morning at 2:30am--YIKES!...AND my first thought was "I want to smoke" thanks to God I resisted tempatation.

In my previous life, I worked from 5:000am to 1:00pm, and rose each workday at 3:00am, in order to shower, dress and eat breakfast. It appears it will take time for my body clock to readjust.

In the meantime, I am running out of things to clean and organize in my home.

I am a member of Moving Forward Through Grief and Loss, yesterday, however, I was STUCK in Grief and Loss. Thanks to the bereavement group I attended yesterday and SparkPeople.com, my Team and God's grace, I am ready to take another step forward in my l new journey.

SOOOOO...Day three of retirement brings me abundant Gratitude for all my blessings.

Gods blessings over all of us.

    It took a while, but it's been YEARS since I wanted to smoke. Hang in there - you can do it!

I just checked out your blog today & see you're working through the grieving process. I'm glad you've found support for yourself as you walk that painful walk. This too shall pass.. or at least it will get better. May God lead you as you go.

Monday August 6, 2012--Goals

Monday, August 06, 2012


Aaaah! Another beautiful summer day!

I decided to act on Sparkguy's guidance and read my goals in the morning

rather than at the end of the day, this way, I can keep my goals ahead of me

instead of OOPS!...I forgot about that.

I am still on the Cargiver Children Team and had considered leaving because

now I am an orphan, emoticon and I am in mourning, however, I am not

ready to let go of Caregiver Children--it was a lifesaver.

I joined the Moving forward through grieving and loss team. Yesterday, I felt

like I was pushing through mud, I ploughed along anyway and I will continue to

do my best each and every day by exercising for at least ten minutes, drinking

at least eight glasses of water and eating healthfully.

Have a Sparkling Successful Day my dear Sparkfriends.

    So sorry for your loss! May God help you through this time... and all your "Sparkie" friends. If your "Caregiver Children" team has helped you, then stay. I'm sure they don't mind! You sound like a wonderful and beautiful women inside & out. Best of luck in all you do. HUGS
