"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."~Unknown

Taking the Tame the Sweet Tooth Challenge 05/06/2012

Sunday, May 06, 2012

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."~Mahatma Gandhi

The first week of the challenge asks that I record what I eat the week. I'm tempted to just go back over the info I have listed in my food journal, and it took a bit to remind myself that while the goal is import, the journey carries it's own value. At the end of the week I'll see if I use this week's info or week before and I'll tell you why. I took the assessment as they requested and the results stated that I do well except for social-type events. That's not me at all...I'm usually on my best behavior at that time. And now that I'm announced that I have officially announced my goal with this challenge, I will choose even better. This may be just what I need to bush my plateau, but I've skipped the lesson part and that's what I need to focus on.

The power is in me to do this. I know it! Wish me luck!

Know Yourself, The Power is in YOU...Sunday's Inspirational Reads 04/29/2012

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Two must read poems, must ponder verses, my feel words. They begin as follows"

"Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. "

and

"The Invitation
By Oriah Mountain Dreamer

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for,
And if you dare to dream of meeting
Your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
For love, for your dream,
For the adventure of being alive."

To read the poems/prayer here's a link that has them both in the same place.
