Are We There Yet??????????

Sunday, April 07, 2013



As we speed along this endless road to the destination called who we hope to be, I can't help but whine, 'Are we there yet?'
~Sarah Jessica Parker

Boy-I can relate to that-lol...getting to our destination can take FOREVER!!! It is true that we should enjoy the journey,blah,blah blah...but there are times when it is a boring, tedious ,long road.



So...just like planning a road trip with small children,I am taking a large bags of tricks to keep my inner child from driving me crazy!




#1- Pack Snacks

No matter what diet you choose, make sure it includes a variety of food. Nifty new recipes & snacks will keep things interesting.



#2 Play the Before and After Game-bring out those old pictures-the good the bad & see where it is you want to go & how far you've come.



#3. The Write a Story Game

Write a novel about what you'll do when you hit your goal weight. Don't just make a list of one-liners -- get into some detail. Let your imagination soar-you are the author of your story!



#4 Take a Friend Along

There is nothing better to make a long trip go faster-take as many friends as you can-they more the merrier!



#5 Plan for" Potty Breaks"

Let's face it-we all need a break every so often-the key is to get right back in the car & keep pushing forward!





As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda, buckle up and just keep going.
Sarah Jessica Parker








Thanks for stopping by -here's to a wonderful Journey-We Can Do It!

    yes-- but don't forget the way of tao, "der weg ist das ziel"-- the road/path/way IS the goal!
where are we rushing to... our graves?

    All good things to remember...it's all about progress, but you're right, sometimes the journey by itself doesn't feel like enough. Thanks.

And I love the kitty!
