We are all on a journey to discover a healthier and happier life. My Christmas wish for you this year is to awaken each morning, this holiday season, and truly see yourself for the wonderful gift you are. Imagine yourself as a portable present ready to take part at any given moment. It may be by giving a smile or by simply being patient. While one person has the gift of laughter, another person blesses us with silence and peace. Please remember each one of us is a work in progress, beautiful, and an essential part of the universal soul.
As we continue this journey into the New Year focusing on emotional growth and renewed physical stamina remember….
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
And remember people, even more than things, have to be restored,
Renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
And as you grow ever wiser, you will discover why we have two hands…..
One for helping yourself and one for helping others.” ~ Audrey Hepburn
It truly is a Wonderful Life when you count your blessings… May God continue to bless you and your loved ones today and always.
From my house to yours......
Peace & Love,

Did YOU wear a pair yesterday?
The Gluttony Pants have buttons labeled "Piglet," "Sow" and "Boar" and can be expanded after you have eaten too much. In honor of Thanksgiving, the pants’ fabric, a deep caramel color, plays homage to the mighty turkey, with the pockets lined in the burgundy color of cranberry sauce. Over 600 pairs, at $100.00 each, were sold online, prior to Thanksgiving, mostly bought by woman as a joke for the hungry men in their lives.
We all know busting your buttons after stuffing yourself full of Thanksgiving goodies is a total faux pas and Black Friday just may include the sound of thousands of weight tickers being reset here at SparkPeople.
I ate a little of everything and thoroughly enjoyed every bite... I tracked it just to "see" the damage and was pleasantly surprised with the calorie intake but blown away by the sodium count….. so today I'm re-thinking my traditional old habits of “leftovers” week by continuing to practice portion control and increasing my water consumption to flush all the extra sodium.
All in all Thanksgiving did not bust my buttons and was a very enjoyable feast with family and friends.
I hope you were able to indulge without the post-meal awkwardness this Thanksgiving and continue to enjoy the extended weekend with lots of physical activities.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone
