This week

Friday, March 21, 2014

This week I will be partying all night with my textbooks, highlighters notes and tea! I test next weekend. Don't know if I'm ready but I have to at least try. Leaving for Wisconsin on Thursday morning at 1 am. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers next weekend I know it will help!
Thank-you all for the Birthday wishes and goodies---they all meant something to me!

Sounds like a very low calorie/points friendly "PARTY" to me!!!! Not sure you'll have many "guests" show up with that posted menu though!!!! LOL!!!!!! although I would come to it for the tea!!!!

Study hard - you can do it - it'll be worth it!

Sending hugs and prayers for a very productive "party" ---

Jane

Happy Birthday to me!

Thursday, March 20, 2014

I turned 55 years old today. I am making this year my best yet. Yesterday was my 20th wedding anniversary. Milestones to be celebrated at a mindful dinner out tomorrow night. Healthier and happier and in a much better place physically and emotionally. Now all I need to consider this my most successful year yet is to pass my clinicals the weekend of March 28th.

emoticon emoticon to all my sparks friends for keeping me so motivated, sharing tips and being the kind of friends I need. I am blessed to know you!----------Susan

SparkCoach Assignment

Friday, March 14, 2014

Today I am to list at least 3 positives---
1. I continue to be off all my diabetes medications.
2. My blood sugars are withing normal range but at times have dipped, not gone up
3. My mind is focused. No more food fogs!
4. My clothes fit better
5. I have made friends here on Sparkpeople!
6. I have a more positive outlook
7. My emotional eating has subsided ( I know this can change)
8. My motivation to get healthy has not waned.

Thank-you Sparkspeople but most of all the members who have sparked me!

Quote

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not falling down, but the staying down. Mary Picford

When I originally posted this I had not read my sparkspage. There was a thank-you from Pixie for posting on her blog with this quote. I had received this quote from facebook. Pixie consider this a tribute to your friend who I know you miss.

    I agree with this quote - in fact I was talking about the same sort of thing in my blog today. I set my challenges for things I struggle with. It doesn't matter if I fail, as long as I try again, and each time I try again, I do it better, longer, and am less likely to fail, and if I do fail again, it will be in a smaller way, for a shorter period of time! This is because I attempt the challenge! :-)

Optimism

Sunday, March 02, 2014

Read this tonight--

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.----------Helen Keller
I need to be as optimistic as I can and the confidence will follow!

    With Optimism we are more likely to look for reasons to keep going or ro beel more motivated to keep going.
