Late Sunday Blog (for me)...

Sunday, February 13, 2011

I thought I had blogged this morning but I guess I got busy with other stuff. It's been a productive day... laundry, shopping, cooking. I enjoyed an outing with Lise to a neat local grocery store that offerred various asian items (TNT)...

I did some of my volunteer work stuff... and while I had intentions of 'being good' today ended up finishing up the cheese cake (well with the girls) and having a couple of coolers... but plans to get back to business begins tomorrow!

I have set my sights on my goals and nothing's going to stop me!

I have a few great motivators for doing this (including the great team Going for the Goal) - including a visit to see friends at Easter and then come June - sending off the girls and perhaps opening up to something new... still not saying anything for fear of jinxing it... but it looks good and feels great!

While shopping I explored the isles with bathroom and bedroom decorating stuff... I'm looking forward to jumping into this as it's something I haven't done in a while... I also hope to go to places like Micheal's (craft store), Home Sense and IKEA to really make every space inviting and most of all 'clutter free'.

Just thinking about doing this is liberating!

I'm just waiting for my T4 from work so I can Netfile, get my return and get started!

And tomorrow - Valentine's Day... well it's everywhere and I'm loving it too this year because that's just how I'm feeling! I am hopeful about my soulmate ... the secret and the law of attraction. It's happening people!! Of this I have no doubt!

Ask - and then trust... we never know how it will happen and I'm enjoying the suspense - aren't you?!!?!!

    I've been to TNT once and loved it! Although it was incredibly crowded so I haven't been back.
Happy Valentine's day, I'm so glad you've got such a positive attitude about it!

1 week back...

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Okay so I've been back one week... and it's been an incredible week. The busy-ness did catch up to me as I ended up leaving work early with a migraine coming on... Truly feeling tired from the full week and late night on Thursday (with a 15 hour day).

My amazing boss saw me working 'in the dark' and told me to go home and catch up on e-mails/work after when I felt better. So I came home and did just that. Rested up with a nap (as it's the only thing that cures my migraine - the darkness).

I then had my '2 hour' conversation with my special new friend (something we've been having daily for many days - except Thursday as I was at my chapter meeting). Technology is amazing in how it can connect us - friends and more than friends - across any borders!

Like my dear SP Friends here ... I seek you out every day and love all of you!

Today's plan is my volunteer shift for Winterlude from 9 to 1pm. Then it's back to hanging out with my gals, some cleaning... Tomorrow will be the grocery shopping and preparation for the week ahead - back on track with my routine!

Thanks to MIMI and our team boost ... Going for the Goal - I'm going to reset my plans and intentions to make the next 6 weeks count!

150Ville is within my reach... and I am back to my weigh ins on Monday's and back to making plans for my workouts including minimally 2 ST workouts.

Life is amazing... and I am truly grateful for all the gifts being provided to me! Ask, Believe and RECEIVE my friends... The Secret... The Law of Attraction!! It works!!

The Soulmate Secret

Friday, February 11, 2011

While away on my cruise I read Arielle Ford's "The Soulmate Secret" and the book confirmed more of the 'law of attraction' principles and truly gave me food for thought...

Feng Shui is something that has also come up a lot as a theme in my readings and it has inspired me to take action on this. While on the cruise I also met a wonderful lady who shared how she re-did her bedroom and how in 4 months she attracted her 'soulmate'...

So with the tips from the books I'm going for it!

I am going to completely RE-DO my room including getting a 'new bed' (even though the one I had wasn't too old - it held some memorie of the past that I would sooner let go to get a fresh start). I will also get new bedding, draperies, decorate and simply turn my already nice 'Zen' room into more of a room that is open and awaiting my soul mate's arrival.

I'm excited about doing up my room - including some painting. A couple of years ago I surprised the girls and re-did their rooms - now it's my turn.

If anyone wants to check out some of the great resources from this book, check the following link:

Yesterday was a long day but wonderful nonetheless.. I had my chapter meeting and despite all the technical glitches, I remained calm and proceeded to have a wonderful evening. Our speaker was great and the resources she offered definitely interested our members.

It's already Friday and plans for the weekend include a trip to the library tonight, and hanging out with my lovely girls! I've been back for almost one week... but the warmth of the wonderful trip still shines brightly inside me!

As my status says today... Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

    I've not read much about Feng Shui but do cut out clutter in my life and I have applied it to my workout area- calm colours, room to manover, mirrors etc. It's my sanctuary

Good luck with your reorganising emoticon

    I recently attended a Feng Shui seminar and got some helpful tips. However, I have to clean up the clutter before I can start decorating in the Feng Shui way. I know I'll feel much better once I simplify. emoticon

Now Really is NEW!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Ralph Marston does it again ... it's like he reads my mind because today's Daily Motivator speaks to how I'm feeling in that this time, things really are different! Have a read...

Now is here, and now is not like any other time that has ever been. For right now, it doesn't matter who is to blame or what has held you back.
This is when you can take positive action. This is when you can step away from the problem and into the solution.

You are now free of past assumptions and connected to limitless possibilities. You are newly arrived in this moment, ready to live with more richness and fulfillment than ever before.

If you could choose to experience some specific positive change in your life right now, what would it be? How would it look, what would it feel like and how would it sound?

If there were one small, easily accessible step that you could take right now to begin making that change happen, what would it be? And what would be a step you could take after that?

Imagine, more vividly than ever before, living true to your most treasured dreams and highest values. Now is new, now is here, and now is when you can.

Is it me or is "LOVE" in the air?! I re-decorated my page in honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day and to reflect what I'm feeling inside... I am still not going to say much for fear of jinxing anything... but it's still really really GOOD and I think this too is NEW and different.

I read KOWLEEN's blog about how she's finding life is wonderful for her right now and you know, I have to ring in and say the same!

I have a wonderful job, wonderful kids, wonderful friends - good health, great networks and the potential for outstanding growth each and every day and all this thanks to one thing... BEING POSITIVE!!! The law of attraction at work people!!

I trusted in my heart that good things were coming to me... I was feelingzation it (you know like visualizing but really feeling it in the depths of my soul)... This is what athletes do when they prepare for their 'game' and so it is with my game now!

With my dream trip completed... the 'what's next' is planning for the summer visit the girls will have with their dad and the time we'll have to do things together. I should know more about the dates later this weekend. I'm also going to visit friends/family for Easter weekend ... and once June arrives ... I will see my dreams further realized in so many other areas... (shhhh - can't say just yet... no jinxing right?!).

Life is emoticon and the potential for my SP journey advancement is NEW too! Watch out 150Land 'cause here I come!! See you by March 1st baby!! emoticon emoticon

Happy Wednesday!

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Mid-week already! I thought my first full week back would be tough but it's flying by.

I have not yet landed back fully in the SP routine with my exercises and all... because I'm a little side tracked with 'new' interests in my life... but I'm sure things will settle down soon (I think lol)...

A quickie blog today my friends... I continue with my daily affirmations, and look forward to the weekend so I can plan the second half of this month and get back to BUSINESS of losing weight and hitting 150Land!!

Happy Hump Day all!!
