I got to clean most of the first floor and the mater bedroom on the second floor house today and yesterday and I am grateful. Now, don't get me wrong, but I just was not functioning well, and it was because I had let my home get yuk. So, I started yesterday afternoon, and did every room in the first floor except my office, and there is such a sweet spirit following through, My office is a tackle on it's own, and when I get to that, I will be throwing stuff out. Once that is done, all of floor one will be done - then selecting paint. I will be putting 1' laminate - that looks so much like hardwood, it is not funny. It will become our library for a moment, with the settee and all. I am thinking a sage color. We still have the basement and garage and the garage will get a burp this week. We want to park our cars in there this winter as it appears it is going to be a rough one. I feel so much better and a since of relief.
I am doing that two pound thing, two up, two down - I told my body, I was not playing volley ball, so what's up? I workout well this week, accepted some challenges and fought well. A few days, I was tired as all get out, and body wanted to sleep well, but I made us get up to get to getting' and I am glad I did. Nov2, starts a new set of classes, and one is metabolic something, and it is designed to burn fat. My P.T. consultant thought it would be good, but how about the instructor telling, me, " well it is going to be very difficult and you might want to think about." And how about me, as a paying person, ignoring her. It bothered me, and I found it somewhat discouraging, but all my life, I let people tell me what I could and could not do, and I was fat. Hear me: I AM NOT GOING TO LET ANYONE PUSH ME AROUND!! I am going to hydrate, eat well, and do it as BEST I CAN! I am doing this for me, and not anyone else and if I need a modification, then I will get a modification. NO MORE MISS LAZY or MISS I CAN't. I CAN AND I WILL.
When, what a day. I am tired and happy cause I am in the land of clean. Have a great evening.

I want to thank you for being who you are. It is safe and warm and loving, Why do I want you to celebrate you today because I know I can because of you. I know that you are here to encourage, make suggestions and chastise gracefully. I know you will pray and I know you will smile. I know you care and that is so important.
This week sent me some gifts that I was not expecting - infact these gifts were not what I wanted, but I must tell you, these gift are called gifts now because they are an opportunity for some immense growth in me - from the spirit sometimes that it is not authentic to the dancer in me that needs to come out. These gifts make me know from whence my help comes and why my help comes. These gifts could have been tragic, but instead they are designed to make me appreciate me more and pour from my belly so much love for who I am, so I can love you with the sincerity and joy that you deserve, and that is why I want you to celebrate yourself.
Now go to the mirror of your soul and thank it for that kindness that you have shown me. We have 71 days left in this year and for me, I am going to make each and everyone count by taking care of me, with kindness.
You may be a bit confused, but I realized my body had been talking in tongues and I was not getting get the translation right; I thought I was being attacked, instead, I am being taught how to live and walk that living walk. I am being taught to speak truth to power and expect a return. I am being taught more and more how to love unconditionally. And so my beautiful friends, Please as we enter this weekend, celebrate yourselves on me, you are one great, giving, loving, positive, strong, spirited, generous, gentle, joyful, compassionate, and beautiful group of people. And to help you celebrate, sing this song to yourself, because that is how you love me and I thank you. If you feel that it is not true, keep singing it until it is in your spirit and you can separate yourself from those words. I am working on that now!

It is hard to face up to everything we have done to ourselves, but there comes a time when it necessary to at least review, so here I am, the day after my doctor's visit, I am settled, but or just a moment, I had to get a grip on reality. After I shared the news with my great friend, she writes this: "Ok. Now you've got stuff I can't even pronounce! Your body is speaking in tongues so even the devil is confused. I'll bet you're feeling just fine though. " - and she is right, I do feel all right. Don't you just love her for that. I will not go into a discussion about what is going on, but just know that it is not a mountain that can not be move, it is not a circumstance that is to great, and healing is what is on my agenda for life.
Yes, I cried and then my husband took me to see Red , hear this - Bruce Willis and I were the youngest people in the theatre, and he really does not count because he was on the screen. If you have not seen it, go for the levity it provides. I did well, I only cried for a moment later in the evening, but weeping may endure for a night, but I declare joy does come in the morning.
Let me tell you about my day, especially after my friend's comment, I went to water aerobics and the instructor kicked mine and everyone who did as requested. I believe my arms are going to survive. I then went to my strength training, can you say medicine ball, stability ball, race walking and steps - the ones in the gym, up and down, side up and down, pain is my middle name, and joy is in my heart. Then my neighbor friend, coerced me to walk the track and I am not complete. Can someone tell me why my butt is so tight - is it getting to be the type that a quarter can be bounced off of - or am I dreaming? Surely, I can dream - or is there anything to help me get an onion bottom.
I then went to Subway to pull a Gerard, and ordered a seafood sensational and I got a lot of bread, and I guess that is okay, but I was a tad hungry after the work-out. Lesson Learned: Make my own lunch, then I can have what I want!
So, what is up with you guys - does anyone get all of their nutrients in, I am not, although I had greens and fruit in, and so, how am I supposed to do it? I also am between 12-14 hundred cals per day, so how I am getting stuff in, and MY GLUT'S are talking to me, so nothing else really matters right now. I AM GLAD THEY HURT, the are telling me they exist. Hi, Glutes, would you like to talk with the people, no, oh, you are shy, why is that? Oh, you have not been worked with such loving care. Okay, I get Glutes, you really are screaming at me because I have neglected you and you want to remind me. Cool, I will remember you daily. Now glutes, make me look good here!
