Good Morning:
My life is transformed as my mind is renewed.
My mind is a powerful tool. The thoughts I think and the memories I recall shape my life experience. When I choose life-affirming thoughts, I have life-affirming experiences. A transformation occurs. My physical appearance changes as I smile more often, walk more confidently, and let my inner light radiate outward. As I develop greater peace and awareness, my spiritual essence shines more brightly. My inner transformation positively affects my life and the lives of those around me.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonHave a wonderful day! I have been exercising regularly. emoticonI hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

HELP! Any one have any information about dealing with VA

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Good afternoon- just got a call from DS. He is starting the process of med boarding out of the Army. He was given all his medical records yesterday to go through. There are severe errors or lack of entry information in his medical records. VA is rushing him up to meet with them with his medical records. He has been assigned a person to help but he can not seem to contact him today. He feels that they are stream rolling over him. Rushing him. He thought he would have a week to look through his records. It is very important that this process go smooth. This is his future with benefits.
Any thoughts. emoticon

    No advice but do NOT let him be rushed! Check with the VFW? Maybe someone there can guide you?

Robin Roberts Grateful for All the Love

FacebookTweetChipper, energetic and visibly grateful, Robin Roberts returned to Good Morning America Tuesday, a day after revealing she is battling MDS, or myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare disease of the blood and bone marrow – and that she will have a bone-marrow transplant, with her sister, Sally-Ann Roberts, as a donor.

"I slept like a baby for the first time since my diagnosis," Roberts, 51, said at the top of the show Tuesday. She also expressed her thanks for the outpouring of "comfort and support" she's received from viewers, along with all the advice that has been dispensed and that she's been finding helpful, she said.

In addition, she also heard from First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney, the wife of the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.

"Barack and I have you in our prayers. We believe in you and thank you for bringing awareness and hope to others. –mo," Mrs. Obama Tweeted.

Roberts said that she and Mrs. Romney, "who has had her own health challenges … had a lovely conversation" Monday. (Romney has battled multiple sclerosis.) Roberts expressed her gratitude to both women.

On Tuesday, with ABC News chief health and medical editor Dr. Richard Besser, Roberts discussed the possibility that this new setback may be the result of the treatments she received while successfully fighting breast cancer five years ago. Roberts said she is aware of that link but has no regrets, as it was imperative that she treat her primary condition.

Roberts hopes that the attention paid to her diagnosis will encourage people to donate bone marrow in order to help others with the disease. Her new round of chemotherapy is scheduled to begin immediately, with her transplant to take place in the fall.

"I am very fortunate to have a sister who is an excellent match, and this greatly improves my chances for a cure," she said Monday.

On Tuesday, Roberts once again thanked the public for its love.

    God love her, she's been through so much and she's a total class act. I hope she kicks the stuffing out of this like she did breast cancer.

    I saw the segment with Robin and Dr. Besser this morning. **SIGH** She is an outstanding example of grace under fire.

Thanks for sharing this information. I had learned of her MDS yesterday but didn't know her sister was a match for her and that would allow for a bone marrow transplant.

Hope YOU'RE having a peaceful day. HUGS for all you share.

running late today but got exercise in!

Monday, June 11, 2012

Good Evening: Where did the time go? I sat down to watch the news and I thought did I post on the blog? I did not even remember. It has been a hectic day but a day where I am managing my food and exercise well. I love days like this. I am listening about Robyn Roberts having another health issue. I love her- she is on Good Morning America. When I think of a truly nice person - I think of her. I have watched her on TV for years. When I grow I want to be like her. emoticon emoticonI truly wish her well and all the prayers to get over this addition health issue. DS called today after going to one of these meetings on benefits- it was mind boggling. He called me up : Mom you have got to help me. I told me send me the days so I can add this to my calendar. I told him that I will be glad to help but you have to ask. He asked. emoticonI hope you have a successful day, too.

Making a renewed commitment

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Good Morning; Today I am getting back to regular exercise. I have been exercising but not in a routine like I used to do to lose weight. I am also working with trying to get a better menu for my food. I have a friend who is very organized and she keeps a menu of 6 weeks running and cooks every night. She also works outside the home. She puts me to shame always. I am not that organized. Since the kids are out of the house and DH is not always around, I cook for one. I am not much of a meat eater.
If any one has some good recipes which is good for weight loss - let me know.
emoticon emoticon emoticonWhen I look in the mirror, I see my face, my body and the external boundaries of "me." Then I close my eyes and imagine standing alone at the edge of the ocean. I feel the boundary dissolve between me and All That Is. Have a good day!! emoticon emoticon

    I too loved your standing at the edge of the ocean...

I need to go back to preplanning and preprepping myself. Great idea to do the shopping list as you plan.

    A month at a time, I hardly know what I am fixing for dinner when I get up in the morning, I am unorganized, lazy perhaps, but I do cook healthy, mostly, sometimes, not but for the norm it is.and I am always looking on line for healthy foods, and we both like to try new things and usually we are pleased, but sometimes a real disaster.
it is hot here so I have not wanted to cook or eat the last few days, but of course no weight loss, that is asking just too much.

    What a profound verbal picture your last sentence is! ". . . I close my eyes and imagine standing alone W the edge of the ocean. I feel the boundary dissolve between me and all that is!" What a powerful visualization! And so true!

If we mentall see a picture of those boundaries we "feel" dissolve, there is nothing to stop us from accomplishing what we must!

As for menu planning, when I first started, I really re-tooled my recipe box. As I added more healthy Spark Recipes, I would put them on an index card and put them in my recipe box. I always include the nutrition information too.

With those recipes, and knowing my dietary boundaries (there's that word again!) I mix and match my recipes and come up with daily menus. Generally I put together a weeks worth of menus, but I've done as much as a months worth. I also plan my grocery list while doing my menus. That way I know I have what I need to make the meals.

My 2nd big helper is doing big batch cooking to make sure I have at least 3-4 meals in the freezer. Just as simple as doubling a recipe so I have freezer meals.

Tip #3: the crock pot. You do have to take the time to prep, but once that's done, voila . . . the crock pot does the rest for you.

I have blogged a few of my favorite recipes. Check 'em out.
