Here we go again!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I have been playing with this for a couple of years now but the thing I love most is that there is no judgement and I can always come back and start again. Last year was a bad year for me with my fibromyalgia and I just basically gave up doing much of anything to help myself. I went to a healing Mass in November and believe that God cured me of some of the pain associated with my fibro! And I feel stronger than I have in years. I also found that my thyroid medication has an affect on how I feel so I have cut it back and hope that will do the trick. I am now 2 days with my calories in range and beginning to do a little exercise. I decided that I needed to get my food in line first and then I will concentrate on adding the exercise.
Hope everyone has a great day - thanks for Spark always being here for me!

The Aha Moment

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I am a bit of a geek when it comes to technology. I wish I had all the money in the world to spend on it. But my sis has AT&T and they had the IPhone on sale so we got one! OMGoodness - I am in love with it. Now the reason I am talking about this is not because I love the phone, though I do, but because I was trying to get back on track after the 1st of the year and I kept letting things get in my way, my brother was home and we were eating out a lot, I was going out of town for the Governor's Inaugural Ceremony, I was craving sweets because of the Christmas holidays - you get the picture. Well, 2 days ago, I downloaded the app for Spark people and I am addicted to making sure all my food and exercise is charted. I think this is my Aha moment and is getting me back on track. Hope you can find an "aha" moment for you - on to victory! God bless!


Happy New Year!

Monday, January 03, 2011

Hope this finds everyone doing well. I love the beginning of a new year, setting goals and trying to be smarter, better, and more successful than the last year. Well, that is what I am doing today. I have a good friend, Tom, who is working on being healthy with me- we started today and I know we can make it. Have a great day and God bless you all!


Thank Heaven's it's Monday!

Monday, November 09, 2009

I know most of us hate Mondays and I used to but now I love them. I find that I don't have enough to do on the weekend to keep me from just lazing around and I while I certainly have chores to do, I manage to avoid any of them until Monday. But this past weekend it was totally different and I got so much done but in small time frames. I am working the Baby Steps of Fly Lady and someone wrote "Focus is Fabulous" and it is - I started to focus on just one thing I needed to get done and then another and before I knew it, my living room was shaping back up to where I can have company again and I have wanted to do that for quite some time. My office is looking better too and my bedroom will be next. I love that clean feeling you get when the carpet is vacuumed and the house is dusted. Oh the simple pleasures in life.
Hope everyone has a great and productive Monday!!


Rain in TX Yahoo!

Friday, September 11, 2009

We have had rain in the forecast for days now and it is finally here. While it generally makes me hurt because of my fibromyalgia, I slept in and through most of the hard rain and took my meds as soon as I got up and am feeling pretty good.
I was just sitting here remembering 8 years ago and still can't believe that something that heinous could happen in the USA but it did! My husband and I were just getting up when his friend called and told us to turn on the TV; we stood there in shock as we saw the second plane go through the tower. My first thought was my sister, she is a flight attendant for American Airlines and I was terrified. Called my mom and she was not flying that day, thank God. But when I talked to my sister, she was a mess because the plane that hit the Pentagon had her good friend as the Captain and she knew he was dead. What in the world was happening? I hope and pray that we never experience anything like that again but there are no guarantees. So many other countries and peoples hate us - we can only pray for their salvation.
So I hope today we all hold our family close and remember those who are gone. We must never forget what happened as my mom and her generation will never forget Pearl Harbor.
God Bless us all and God Bless America!
Have a wonderful day!

    This is a day for everyone to remember tha we need to come together for the good of our country. So true that so many hate us. Is it because we have our freedom or what?
