I found my mojo

Friday, August 01, 2014

I've been struggling a lot for a few months now as I am working long hours and caring for my mother and I lost sight of my goals and what's important to me.

It's so easy to forget yourself and what YOUR goals in life are when life gets in the way, well I have now refound my mojo- I thought I had lost it completely but it turns out I just needed to find the spark to re-ignite the flame, the fire in my belly.

I am now following a 12 day plan that is so easy I didn't think it could work, how wrong I am! I have so much more energy and am eating right for my diabetes and coeliac disease. I have no hunger either so it's a win win situation. I have enough energy for exercise as well as my daily chores.

I have documented my progress as always so that if I start to lose focus I can see how I felt before and how I feel now, that is a real motivator for me, I hate feeling so sluggish and so tired all the time, now I have the old fitter me coming back and I realise how much I let my health suffer to accommodate others needs of me.

I have learnt a very valuable lesson, although I love my life and don't begrudge anyone my time I must remember that I cannot help anyone (least of all me!) by neglecting myself

Happy Friday to all emoticon

    Glad to hear that you found a way to get back on track. Way to go!

And you are correct, if you don't take care of yourself, your no good to anyone else.

Happy New Year

Monday, January 06, 2014

Last year was pretty bad so at Midnight on NYE I opened the door to let it go, I felt an unmistakeable relief and as if a huge weight had been lifted.

I let in the new year and felt full of hope

This is def the year

    I am so glad that you let the old year go . Hope can really change you. See it in the small things that happen each day : a co-worker's smile, a snowflake, someone attempting to clear their walkway. I wish you blessings ! emoticon emoticon

I crossed the line!

Friday, August 02, 2013

I've been a diabetic (diet controlled) for a couple of years now. Recently I've not been eating properly and am no longer diet controlled. I started my meds this week.

I could kick myself as I KNEW I would cross the line if I didn't take care but through simple greed I have worsened my health.

The meds are making me feel sick all the time, my blood sugars are bad and I'm so tired and thirsty!

At times I am my own worst enemy, unfortunately I'm not the only one who pays the price as if I carry on like this I wont live to a grand old age with my family. I also can't take them swimming if I don't feel right as I would feel that they wouldn't be safe with me feeling the way I do right now.

    Each day, each choice is a golden opportunity to start FRESH! No matter how many times we've failed to follow our best intention, each second we have of breath - is another opportunity to choose better and live more in alignment with what we know is true and best for us. Don't despair. You're still alive and thus, stilli in the game!

Check out INDYGIRL's page (
asp?id=%7EINDYGIRL) - she started out completely bedridden and 450+ pounds a couple of years ago. Now, she weighs 210 pounds (but her pictures make her look tiny and FIT) and she is mobile. She began her journey believing every little movement, even micro-movement counts and leads to a bigger change! She was RIGHT! You CAN DO THIS! DON'T Fear and certainly DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF! You are BEAUTIFUL & WORTHY! Blessings, Bliss! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    At least now you know that when you're off the meds again, it'll be worth it because you'll never want to go back to feeling this way, right? You can do this!

Thank you so much!

Thursday, June 06, 2013

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has left the lovely comments on my page, not just on my motivator day but always

I don't always respond and I should do- if you took the time to leave me a message, like something on my feed & give me a goodie I should thank you on the day.

I had a mini stroke in January which, until recently, I've been reluctant to mention. It has affected my memory but thankfully nothing else.

Loving too much?

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

It's been a while since I last posted an entry- life has been manically busy but good

My youngest daughter who beat cancer moved back from Ireland to be closer to us so I now have my two gorgeous daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren less than an hour away. I'm a very happy mum/nanny!

My husband realised that the grass is not greener on the other side, I not so tactfully pointed out that the grass looked greener but he landed in a field of cow dung! He accepts this and he also accepts that the gate to my field is no longer open! We remain the best of friends despite what he did to me. He's a good man- just likes his cake and eat it

My mother had her mastectomy and has been given the all clear, a huge relief. I told her she had to fight the cancer as I was too young to be an orphan! She didn't want any surgery or medical intervention. She's hoping to move up with me this year (a challenge for us both!)

My working life is good and I started my own company last August- business is booming!

My eldest granddaughter, aged 10 going on 40, said to me on Saturday 'nanny you love too much' I asked her what she meant, she said that I love too many people and give out so much love that I don't save any for me. I explained to her that I don't think I love too much but I do love them immensely. I also explained to her that the family being happy is what makes me happy and that when they hug me and tell me they love me this is my 'reward' for loving them.

She's a bright child with amazing insight. She wants to follow the path but we want to wait until she is old enough to truly understand what that means, she does celebrate the sabbats with me which I wont stop her doing, she loves life and follows the 'harm none' rule.

My 11 year old Grandson has decided it's not 'cool' to hug his mum in public anymore but he hugged me and told me he loves me in front of his friends, I cried when I walked away.

My 2 little ones are aged 3 & 2 and are a constant joy but such a handful. They take a lot of looking after but every second I spend with them is so worth it.

As a family we never go to bed on an argument, never leave things unsaid and we always tell each other we love them, even the little ones. We know how precious life is so we make every second count.

I couldn't be happier in my life, I have everything I could ever want. I'm so very proud of my family, they have been through so much and are still all well balanced (almost normal!).

I haven't focused much on my exercise and eating healthily in recent months and put back some of the weight, this is the only part of my life I can't seem to truly get to grips with but it doesn't stop me trying, I lost a lot of weight, stayed the same for a couple of years then gained nearly a stone! I know it'll come off but will take time. What's more important is that I don't pass my weight gain stresses onto my family, I don't want the children having to worry about weight. They eat sensibly, they exercise and their mothers are the best they could wish for.

The point of my blog? Is it possible to love too much?

    It is never possible to love too much. It is only when you expect something in return that it can cause great issues within your heart and mind.

Remember you are truly blessed.
