Oct 3 Fabulous Friday!

Time to toot your own horn. It's been awhile since we posted this challenge and acknowledge our successes. Nope...this isn't about bragging, it's about giving ourselves the credit for what we have done well. Review your week and let us know why you are fabulous.

I am fabulous for realizing I am not living up to my potential of living a healthier lifestyle and that I need to be serious about my health and being willing to make some changes for the better. Will start by checking out my pass card to see if it's still active at SNAPS and if it isn't getting it reactivated so I can start going to the gym again, it's been quite a while since I last went and continue to search for meals to fix at home that will be tasty, satisfying and healthy.

Thanks for this challenge Wanda.

Oct 3 Fabulous Friday! Yes you are fabulous Wanda......

I am fabulous because I've altered bridesmaid dresses for my granddaughter's wedding.

I am fabulous because I have moved the sewing upstairs to get more exercise - 8 trips yesterday!

I am fabulous because I've spent time in prayer this morning for those most in need-- known and unknown.

I sincerely wish everyone a fabulous Friday!!!! emoticon

I am fabulous because I have completed getting all my floors washed and all the furniture back in place after a summer of renovations.

I am fabulous because I have made time for quiet time and being grateful for all my blessings

I am fabulous because I am blessed with a wonderful group on the Positive Bloggers that keep me encouraged and moving forward.


Have a wonderful day,

August 1 Fabulous Friday!

The first day of a new month and it's a great opportunity to remind yourself just how fabulous you are! Start this month off with some positive affirmations. Review all the great successes that you had last month...they are there! and then set some goals for this month.

You are fabulous just because you exist.

time to toot our horns on all our fabulousness! If you aren't proud of yourself, how do you expect others to be proud of you.


I am fabulous because:

1. I am working on getting my life back in order.
2. I found a place to live and though fearful, am excited about new energy / new life.
3. I took deep breaths with several work situations (none of them Hope Bus-related).

I am fabulous because:

2. I am not stressing about how much it is going to cost us to get the rest of the windows replaced...the money will be there!
3. I am doing great at getting my water into me each day and feeling so much better.

Have a great and wonderful day,

June 27 Fabulous Friday! It's the last Friday of June already!

Let's give ourselves a pat on the back for all the fabulous accomplishments that we have achieved over this past month. If we don't toot our own horns, no one else will do it for us! Let yourself know that you are working hard and making steps towards your goals.


I am Fabulous because I have increased my steps to over 4 miles a day...so proud to be doing this after having my knee replaced 6 months ago.

I am Fabulous because I am now drinking my 8 glasses of water everyday again.

I am Fabulous because I am working at remembering to track my nutrition every day.

I am Fabulous because I have been blessed with wonderful friendships through Sparkpeople.


Have an awesomely wonderful day.

Hugs,
Wanda

Ahhh Friday...and it's Fabulous because:

It's Friday and it's fabulous because it is the last work day of the week for me.
It's Friday and it's fabulous because that means I will be on holidays starting tomorrow until May 9th.
It's Friday and it's fabulous because it is my favorite day of the week.

I went out for lunch today, ordered a taco salad with ice water, while others around me were ordering much "unhealthier" choices. I felt pretty good about myself, sticking to my plan!

I used my break this afternoon to walk up (and then down) 8 floors of stairs...200 some-odd stairs. I'm feeling pretty fabulous about that! I've been meaning to try to incorporate it as a new habit. (We'll see about that.)

And I think I handled a couple of semi-tense situations pretty well today!

This has been a long long winter for most of us and so done with it. I thought today we would get our focus on the positives.

Tell us what has made your day, week or month (so far) Fabulous. By listing your positives, you re-focus your attitude to the bright side.

This day has been fabulous the day started out with sun and blue sky and the temp just kept going up till it got in the low 40's, it actually gives us hope that spring is on it's way. Coffee hour went great, everyone really liked what I made for coffee hour, we did two sessions on the exercise DVD after coffee hour. Did some running around after lunch and got things done, will be helping out with a funeral dinner tomorrow, did not expect this weekend to be so busy, but am able to adapt. It's just been an all around great day. Finally found the time to get on Spark. Life is good.

2. My refrigerator has only healthy food - a real makeover! WOOHOO!

3. I surprised myself by being in the top 3rd of the Spark Activity Tracker Leaderboards. WOOHOO!

So far this month, the March Challenge has helped me to get back on track with tracking my nutrition and water...and for that I'm feeling Fabulous.
So far this week, I've managed to stay on top of the "I hate Winter blues" and embrace being able to get outdoors and do some snow shoveling...burning extra calories and getting in more steps...and for that I'm feeling Fabulous.
So far to day, I'm starting my day with having been granted a new day of life and I'm looking forward to a weekend...and for that I'm feeling Fabulous.

Time to remind ourselves of just how fabulous we are! List at least 3 things that are fabulous about yourself.

1. I'm fabulous because I have been given the go ahead to start driving again. This means my healing is going well. Thank you.
2. I'm fabulous because I have been working hard at doing my exercises and promoting the continued healing in my knee.
3. I'm fabulous because I belong to the one of the best positive teams on sparkpeople. Thank you all for being on this journey with me.

I am fabulous for starting the new year off right by getting totally back on track and it feels marvelous to be tracking my nutrition, water and exercise again.

I am fabulous for getting most of the paperwork done yesterday, just have one more thing to complete and it'll be done and can put in the mail tomorrow.

I am fabulous for not giving up on me, even though there have been times when I thought why keep trying. I keep trying cause I am worth it and will not give up.

I am fabulous because I know 2014 is going to be a wonderful year in many ways and I can make that happen by keeping a positive attitude and remembering to always be thankful in all things.

...I was courageous to accept the invitation to join the 2014 Winter 5% Challenge team, that looks pretty intense.
...I am working hard at reaching my goal of a healthy lifestyle, even if only small steps.
...I am working hard at maintaining a positive attitude through this "perfect storm" of depression from SAD, sn*wstorms, in the office, and losing my Gracie.

January 3 Fabulous Friday!

It's Fabulous Friday time again. Toot your own horn and let us all know why you are fabulous today or this past week.

It's not about bragging, it's about giving yourself a pat on the back.

I'm fabulous because I can now go up the stairs normally instead of one step at a time. My knee is getting stronger.
I'm fabulous because I have my walking goal set and I'm working towards it.
I'm fabulous because I am able to sit with my knee bent for 30 minutes at a time now.

I'm fabulous just because I choose to be.

Hugs,
Wanda

I'm having a FABULOUS FRIDAY on Saturday! :) Just couldn't get here with yesterday's work hours.

I am FABULOUS because despite the craziness of my work schedule, I am tracking/analyzing my food everyday (thanks to the SP Tracker App for my phone - worth the $4).

I am FABULOUS because I am taking time during the day to do something I think is fun - like reading, playing Trivial Pursuit on Pogo.com, or doing crossword puzzles...oh, and sleeping!

I am FABULOUS because I am eating healthier foods and drinking my water, with an occasional treat.

Oct 4 Fabulous Friday!

Time to tell the world just how fabulous you are. Yep, you heard me...tell us what makes you fabulous.

I'm fabulous because I just succeeded in not missing one day in September of being successful in my Fill-a-meter challenge. I drank my water every day last month. I'm doing great this month so far too. I added tracking consistently to my challenge.

I'm fabulous because I got all my garden processed and into the freezer for winter use.

I'm fabulous because I am correcting the bad habit of not eating enough each day, it's a struggle for me, but I'm getting there.


Have an awesome day.

Wanda

Jul 19 Fabulous Friday!

It's time to toot your own horn again! We haven't done this in awhile. It's a proven fact that Positive affirmations do wonders for your attitude.

Your challenge is to list 5 things that make you fabulous :

1. I am Fabulous because I drank my water quota that I set for myself the past two days. I can feel the difference in my body.

2. I am Fabulous because I have not in anyway spilled a secret that will create some great excitement. Boy, this one is so hard!

3. I am Fabulous because I have refocused my determination and motivation in becoming a healthier person in mind, spirit and body.

4. I am Fabulous because I have learned how well being positive works in my life.

5. I am Fabulous because I have given myself permission to like food and not look on food as my enemy.


Have a wonderful day.

Wanda

June 21 (summer solstice) Fabulous Friday!

Today is the first day of summer. Not so much where I am, but I'm going with it anyway *grin*.

When we hear about all the natural disasters and horrendous news casts, we sometimes find ourselves slipping into the mindset of "how horrible everything is".
Today I would like us all to take the opportunity to find all the fabulousness of our lives. See how many things you can find in your life, your day, your home etc.

Make today a day of being Fabulous!

Fabulous things in my life:
- I have a wonderful secure and warm home.
- my sump pump is working well to ensure that no water is coming in to my basement.
- I have today off work to enjoy some me time and work on things at my own schedule.
- I have a wonderful husband and adult children that bless my life on daily basis.
- my gardens are doing well for the most part, yes they need some sunny days, but it's wonderful to see the lushness of the plants coming up through the soil.
- I am able to grow many of my own vegetables, I'm looking forward to being able to preserve them in the fall.
- I have food on my table, my bills are being paid each month, I have a reliable vehicle and a great job.
- our family and friends in the state of emergency zones have let us know that they are ok.
- I have been blessed with a new day of life and will do my best to honor this gift.

So many blessings and fabulous things in my life, I could write for a long time. Join me in this challenge.

Hugs,
Wanda

It's that time again where we remind ourselves of just how Fabulous we really are! No, this is not about bragging in the sense of bragging, it's about letting ourselves appreciate all the Fabulous things we have been doing.

Tell us 5 Fabulous things about yourself:

1. I am Fabulous because I do not give up even when I have a set back.
2. I am Fabulous because I am able to do 25 situps in a row now without feeling like I'm going to die!
3. I am Fabulous because I am eating as healthy as I can and being mindful.
4. I am Fabulous because I put on a pair of pants this morning with ease.
5. I am Fabulous because I belong to one of the greatest teams...Positive Bloggers.


Have a great day,

We haven't tooted our own horns in a while. It's time to give our selves a pat on the back for all the great things that we are doing to become healthy. Too often we get caught up in negative self talk. Not allowed today...make it positive!


1. I am fabulous because I have been mindful of not only what I'm eating but my exercise. I'm becoming stronger.
2. I am fabulous because I was able to give encouragement to a fellow citizen of the world and see the load lifted off their shoulders.
3. I am fabulous because I have raised a family that shares, cares and loves others.


Have a great day,

April 5 Fabulous Friday

Time to toot our own horns once again. Let the world know (and yourself) just how fabulous you are. No, this isn't about bragging, it's about creating positive affirmations in your life.

I'm fabulous because:

1. I'm fabulous because I made the choice not to allow what feel like delays and more delays in getting my surgery done to make me negative. Instead I am focusing on the positives.
2. I'm fabulous because I continue to walk as much as possible even when I would rather just stay stationary.
3. I'm fabulous because I'm making healthy positive choices.
4. I'm fabulous because I'm making all attempts to look at each occurrence in my daily life as an opportunity to learn and grow.


Have a fabulous Friday.

Wanda

I know it's late, but Friday was fabulous because my son played in a wonderful jazz concert and we listened to the band he's in plus several other school jazz bands, a wonderful local swing band, plus two professional musicians. It was a great Friday and I felt fabulous for being part of the entire event with my son.

I am fabulous because I listened to my body's signals and got more rest this week.

I am fabulous because I started eating mindfully.

I am fabulous because I found solutions instead of continuing to complain about problems with which I've been dealing.

I am fabulous because I made plans to surprise my family on Valentine's Day!

I am fabulous

Because I and DH adopted a kitty and are going to give him a loving home.
Because I know what I need to do for my health and will do it.

Wanda,I have heard so many people that have had a knee replacement say how glad they were that they had it done. It will all be fine, my friend.

Best of health and healing with your surgery, Wanda!

I am fabulous because:
I reached my January mini goal this morning!
I have started and maintained a no chocolate/sweets after dinner streak for 3 days!
I have exercised at least 10 minutes each of the last 3 days!

Most of all, I am fabulous because I feel fabulous! Treating my body with nutritious food and fun fitness really pays off in the way I feel! emoticon

Jan 18 Fabulous Friday


It's Fabulous Friday time again! Toot your own horn and let the world know all about how awesome you are! Yep, you heard me right....it's all about giving yourself a pat on the back.


I'm Fabulous because:

1. I have determined and challenged myself to cutting out gluten, dairy and sugar for the 21 days to see how my body responds. I'm on day three and already feeling better.
2. I am drinking much more water and peppermint tea and flushing my system of toxins.
3. I am fabulous because I decided to not allow fear to keep me from what I know will be an inevitable bit of surgery. I'm going for it.
4. I have awesome teammates and friends.

Hugs,
Wanda

I am fabulous cause my body is finally starting to feel better.

Have been staying away from fast food even though there were times I really didn't feel like fixing a meal at home, but did it anyway.

Not giving up on myself.

Jan 04 Fabulous Friday!

It's time to toot your horn! No..you are not bragging... you are giving yourself permission to say "well done" and to positively remind yourself why you are taking this journey to health.

I am fabulous because:

1. I have walked away from the goodies at work this week.
2. I am drinking more water.
3. I have my new word for encouragement for 2013 "Challenge".
4. I am blessed!

Hugs,
Wanda

I think the most wonderful thing to happen this year is making the commitment to take care of myself. Going from 228 to 203 and starting a whole fitness routine has been a game changer. My family and my doctor are all very happy with me, as am I.

Dec 28 Fabulous Friday!

What has been your most memorable moment in 2012.


For me it has to be our family vacation with our adult children back to where Garry and I grew up in the north. Sharing our history and enjoying being with our kids.

Wanda

Dec 14 Fabulous Friday

Just a little bit of a different challenge today for Fabulous Friday.

Your challenge is to be a "secret" gifter. By this I mean, you will secretly do something special for someone else to make their day a little brighter.

examples:

leave a gift of baking or such on a neighbors doorstep or in their mail box with a note saying "Merry Christmas from our house to yours".

go through a drive through and pay for the person behind you in line.

pop some money into a parking meter that is about ready to expire.

You get the idea...go out there, have fun, be creative and bring some joy.

Hugs,
Wanda
