    Good for you! It is good to see the scale # keep moving down. When people ask me what my secret is I just say "a lot of hard work." Looks like you have the "secret" figured out!

choose love....

Sunday, December 20, 2009



Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.
- Martin Luther King Jr.

Choose love. Choose to release all resentments. Forgive everyone. Choose to release all regrets. Forgive yourself for all decision that you have ever made that didn't work out as you hoped. Forgive yourself for any financial decisions that didn't meet your expectations. Release your regrets if you choose the "wrong" spouse or the "wrong" career. Today, choose love. Choose to love yourself. Choose to love your life. Choose to love all the friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, and others who share your life.

As the new year approaches and on this day of our lord I wanted to share this with all. Have a blessed day and let's make this coming year the best it can be. After all the lord woke us up this morning and we need to thank him. emoticon

    That is a really good sentiment. It is hard to forgive people. Especially when they really wronged us. But forgiving them doesn't make them less accountable, it simply releases us.
The hard thing to remember is Jesus said what ever you do unto the least of these, you do unto Me.
Do you forgive or harbor grudges?
That is tough to consider.

The most difficult phase of life is not when no one understands you, it is when you don't understand yourself.
- Anonymous

If you lose the support of those around you, it is a setback. If you lose your own support and confidence, it is a tragedy.

Believe in yourself, in your vision for your future and in your ability to take a small step each day toward achieving your vision.

Just thought I would share these with my spark friends today. We are very important and during this time of year sometimes we forget about us. Let's remember to make us smile at least once a day just because we can. Do something nice for yourself and the rest will be a breeze. emoticon

    Thank you. Your post is most interesting and thought provoking. Many people don't think about themselves let alone during the stress of all the holidays we are currently experiencing.

Merry Christmas

friday

Friday, December 18, 2009

Just wanted to drop a note to me and let myself know i'm doing fine. this week has been stressful to say the least. I'm still not finished for christmas but i will get there soon. My journey is going along fine at this point and no problems there. at least none that i can't handle. I've gotten in my exercise for the week without fail, the rain hasn't slowed me down yet...of course today i'm trying to get it together.

My 15th wedding anniversary was yesterday. we have made it through many and i mean many trials and tribulations. i remember his mother wouldn't give him my number, she was my sons daycare provider, because she didn't think he was good enough for me. Shouldn't that have been the other way around? but alas he found a way, and here we sit, still going stronger than ever. don't get me wrong we had troubles, but what is marriage? it sure isn't for the weak at heart. you will fight, and if you don't something is surely not quite right, you should both have different opinions about something. My hubby and i argue about the weather sometimes. life is good though and we have nothing that we can't share. so as i tell my children you better be sure of what you want, because it is a battle of whits sometimes to get there and stay there.

but i digress, this was suppose to be a quick note to self, and self has just cleared a part of her mind to fit in somemore later. have a blessed day all.

Spark exercises: give em a try

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

emoticonJust finished the spark 10 min. bootcamp kickboxing. If any of you haven't tried these exercises i reccommend them. I burned 105 calories in 10 minutes. when you enter the exercise and it is in the dropdown menu, it calculates for you. I also learned my wii bowling and golf is on there. So guess what? my hubby and i will be doing more of that. I didn't know it was on there. So if you are at a loss as to what to do, search spark. They have some awesome moves and you won't get bored with the same ole same ole.

good luck friends.... let's show the world what we can do this holiday season by losing and not gaining. have a wonderful day. emoticon
