I've been away for good reasons :)

Friday, November 15, 2013

A little while back I was feeling like something needed to change if I was going to move forward with my weight loss and my out look on....everything. So I took the first big step and that was to walk away from a few things that was keeping me from actually getting up and really moving instead of just "talking" about it. So first thing was I closed out my FaceBook account, this was a HUGE hinder for me so it needed to go along with all the drama and negativity. Next, I decided I needed to back away from SparkPeople for a little bit as I was spending most of my free time on here. Wow, then I had all this free was kinda overwhelming as I wasn't sure what I should do or where I should start. After a lot of pacing and tons of sighs I sat down and wrote out a list of what I REALLY wanted for myself and what everything boiled down to was it wasn't about weight loss or my looks it was about being TRULY happy, healthy and peaceful. My journey has brought me to yoga and with this my whole life has changed. I have not only found true peace but I have found a place of belonging. I now spend 2-3 hours engaging in yoga practice followed by meditation and a mantra or 2 and I have started studying another language. I have also started up a small group for people to come together for support and inspiration as I feel that there is not enough positive in people's day to day lives.

    This is fantastic. I spent less and less time on Facebook. There is a LOT of negative energy there. So many passive agressive comments, many status updates about how there aren't enough hours in their days to get everything done. hmmmm!


I'm so happy you have found your path. Very inspirational!

    Wonderful! I try to have quarterly "summit meetings" with myself, to take time and really assess where I am at and where I'd like to go. I love SparkPeople, but last month I realized that I was getting very overwhelmed by all the different aspects of it. I get easily sidetracked by all the various articles and posts I see in daily huddles, people's status updates, team discussion topics, etc. I've given myself permission to just do a few minutes here and there--and not feel like I have to "catch up" with everyone and every post. How wonderful that you found yoga and some peace of mind!

  This is very interesting.
Perhaps I should do this as well.

A simple routine.....but it is my morning routine

Thursday, July 18, 2013

My days start off with my gentle yet persistent alarm going off so pleasantly in my ear at 3:45 a.m., I make my husband his coffee, breakfast and his lunch for the day, take my doggie out and then I get to sit down and talk with the hubby for 5 minutes before he leaves for work at 4:30. I then get into the most comfortable position and meditate for an hour, such a great way to start the day off. emoticon I take my dog for a mile walk, this is also a great slow start to what is to come, I drop him off at home then I'm off for a 5 mile walk/jog/run this puts me back home before 7 a.m. This is when I get my wonderful, delicious and much appreciated coffee!

A great inspiration

Friday, June 21, 2013

My oldest daughter and her husband, both are in the military, recently bought a house in Wyoming. Lol, when it comes to painting my daughter can do amazing finger painting pictures but painting a home......not that good. My husband and I had our own interior and exterior painting business.......whew.....long story a little bit shorter......I will be going to see my sweet baby girl to paint her house while she is busy busy busy working.

I am so greatful that I have this opportunity to be there for my daughter when she needs me. I had started my own direct sales business to have the extra money just for things like this and I had made enough from one show to purchase my ticket! So I leave August 21st and this is my new goal date! I'm so ecstatic to see her new home and the new life she has made for herself.

I am so proud!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

A few weeks ago a letter was sent home from school telling us that Caitlyn would be receiving an award but did not tell us what is was for. Caitlyn has been a cheerleader her entire high school career and that is what we assumed she was getting an award for. Well let me tell you, the tears were flying from my eyes from complete pride when they called her name for the $30,000 scholarship this year. She is the first in our entire family to ever receive any type of scholarship.

Tears are flowing down my face as I'm writing this emoticon

So so happy for her
