Well according to my Wii, I've eliminated .7kg, but according to my scale, no change. So I will continue to work out and track as I need to and eventually things will start to happen. I'm pleased regardless as despite what the scale may or may not say, I'm definitely firming up and eliminating inches! Woo Hoo.
Another new week and new challenges set before me. I had a great sleep last night and it's now 4:45 am, strength training is done, computer time almost over and out the door I will head for work in a few minutes. Recycle day today at work and Ken gets there at 5:30 am, hence Monday mornings are about 30 minutes early start for me than the other days of the week.
I'm filled with renewed energy and my positive attitude is in place, so look out world here I come! lol
A great evening with the girls.
A weekend of recharging, reading and meditating.
Could be my imagination, but the oil of oregano seems to be working. It is not the most pleasant tasting, so the sooner it works the happier I'll be!
If nothing else, it delights Garry to watch my face when I take the drops...I love providing him with amusement! It's a "lovely" lingering taste that stays around for awhile.
A new day and a new week ahead of me.
Blessings that continue to flow into my life.
Hope you have a wonderful day, keep a positive attitude, if nothing else the smile on your face will keep others wondering what you are up to.

Yesterday was a very relaxing day. I took the day and just ministered to myself. I listened to my inner guidance and headed to the health food store in the morning to inquire about a solution to get rid of a wart that I've had on the top of my foot for a couple of years. I've had it burned, I've had it scraped, but to no avail. A while back the thought had come to me that I might need to be taking something internally, but it got pushed to the side as I went on with my busy life. Yesterday the impression was very strong, so I followed through. After talking with the person in the store, she recommended that I try "oil of oregano". The results have been very supportive that it would work. You place (according to the bottle 5 drops, I do only 2 at the moment) drops under your tongue 3-5 times a day, you can also place a drop directly on the wart. Apparently oil of oregano is good for many different things...she gave me a pamphlet, which I promptly forgot on the counter as I was paying. I will need to google and see what else it's good for.
I've only managed two drops as of yet....boy is it strong! I am surprised to discover that it also has quite a hot sensation to it! I made Garry try some last night too, just so I knew how it affected someone else. Yep, same thing...he commented on the heat!
I'll keep trying it for a few days to see if it really works...I'll keep you posted.
From the health food store, I headed to Chapters as I was feeling the need for some new reading material. Headed to my favorite section and surprised myself with three books that really caught my attention. Often, I'm just a browser and come away with nothing. I ended up purchasing all three books as the impression they made on my was very strong. I've obviously got some new learning to do. (Just dawned on me....this might be part of the "shift" I felt coming up with my tension headache a couple of days ago!) Now, I'm excited...I love learning and especially when it means a spiritual growth and a change is occuring. Woo Hoo! The three books I purchased all seem to relate to one another, and I'm excited to be reading them. I've started one and am having a hard time putting it down. I love reading new information, especially when they don't claim to be the "only way" or have all the "answers". This one states..."take what resonates within your being and leave the rest". That line alone resonated with me, as this has been a huge lesson that I've been taught as I've opened myself up to the spiritually side of who I am. Book 1: Opening to Channel: How to connect with your guide by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, Book 2: Earth Magic : Ancient Shamanic Wisdom by Steven D. Farmer and Book 3: Return to the Sacred : Ancient pathways to Spiritual Awakening by Jonathan H. Ellerby.
I know that there is wisdom in each of these books that I'm meant to learn and embrace, that, I'm excited about! I have a very eclectic selection of books in my personal library. Each one of them has imparted some bit of information that I've been able to incorporate into my life. The one thing that I am eternally grateful for, is that I have gained a huge acceptance and understanding of where others beliefs are coming from. We all have the same goal...to be the best that we can be, to be compassionate and show love, to honor our creator.
Excitement once again for another opportunity to grow and become all that I've been created to be.
Headache is gone!
Girls are coming over for dinner tonight.
Two hours of exercising yesterday, released all remaining tension.
Listening to my inner guidance, I now have exciting new reading material and a possible cure!
God, who leads me where He wants me to go.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Have a wonderful day, enjoy the opportunities that present themselves to you today.

Yesterday I had woken up with a really bad tension headache...not sure why exactly, perhaps sleeping tensed up or a life shift about to take place. When this happens, and I've tried relaxation methods to no avail, I know that there is a shift about to take place in my life. An opportunity to either put into practice teachings I've been learning, or an opportunity to learn a major life lesson...always it's something that gives me the opportunity to grow spiritually. I've learned over the past few years to recognize it and to be more aware of events in my day, as well as to surround myself with the white light of the Holy Spirit and call upon my angels.
I took the time to really prepare myself mentally before heading out the door for work. Releasing any and all negativity that I may be retaining and asking for guidance and discernment and a positive attitude to be a part of my day. My day was filled with many opportunities that if I had not been prepared, could have lead down a very negative path. I chose instead, to mentally remind myself that I was the only one responsible for my reactions and how I chose to react could change the situation. I was supposed to work only half a day yesterday, which I had been looking forward to, but ended up putting in a full day. As a result it was a good opportunity for me to evaluate and put into practice lessons that I have been working on.
When I did finally get home, I grabbed a blanket and settled in to have a nap and release the rest of the tension that I had been carrying with me. What a great release that was! I will spend this weekend, tending to my spirit and giving my body the rest it needs.
I woke up from my nap to a phone call that I almost didn't answer because I didn't recognize the area code and my first thought was "a telemarketer". I'm so glad that I listened to my second thought. What a wonderful way to fill my spirit with joy. Thank you Shirl for your phone call! You don't know how much you lifted me up and filled my heart with joy. May your computer problems be fixed quickly!
My headache....yep, you read that right! An opportunity to grow spiritually.
The lessons and opportunity to put them into practice.
A job that I love.
An opportunity to have a great nap at the end of my working day.
A wonderful phone call from Shirl.
God and my angels in my life.
My family and friends.
That the more I open myself up to living according to my life's path, the more I am blessed.
Thank you for stopping by and may your Silly Saturday be filled with fun.

I must have been having stress dreams or been clenching all my muscles while sleeping last night. I woke up about 3 am with a headache. I laid there for the next hour trying to relax all my muscles, but finally gave it up as a bad job and got out of bed. Once I had a hot shower, that seemed to release some of the tension. I will take things easy today and take some time for meditation. Usually when this happens, there is a change about to occur in my life. I just need to relax and go with it. The headache has subsided but there is still residual.
I'm off to work shortly, but seeing as it's Friday and I'm caught up with my work, I do believe that I will use up some of my overtime hours and come home early today.
That I'm more willing to listen to my inner voice and guidance system.
IT"S FRIDAY! (if you don't know by now...I love Fridays LOL)
A free weekend coming up, nothing planned.
I'm being consistant with my increased exercise and watching my calories closely.
God, who continues to bless this family in so many ways.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Have a wonderfully blessed day. Enjoy the opportunity to create a day of your choice.

Not a lot of interest to the general world in my life yesterday, but it was a great day.
I was steady busy at work, came home to a nice evening at home or relaxation. I had time to do some extra free step on the Wii. Managed to get in a full 60 minutes of free step...woo hoo burned 304 calories! Kept within my calorie range and on target with my goals.
Lots of positive energy happening on the team. That is always such a boost of encouragement when I read how well everyone is doing.
The Positive Bloggers.
Even average days are blessed!
Three trophies yesterday from SP...they are always such a nice surprise to receive. Thank you SP!
Have a fanatastic Thursday everyone, keep on working towards those goals. You are only going no where if you are standing still!
