Ever had a chocolate chai latte? Try it! Use about a TBSP of Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa powder (5 calories) instead of syrup (25 calories for just the lite stuff!). If you use Oregon Chai Sugar Free concentrate the sweetness of the splenda blends nicely with the cocoa powder so the latte doesn’t end up too sweet as with syrup. Mmm, spicy chocolatey warm goodness for only the calories of your choice of milk/soy. Try it in regular chai tea too! + =

Part of my blog today was about the question, "How do I do this forever?" Often when we begin any life-changing challenge it can seem overwhelming. I have come to learn that forever comes one day at a time. Today is all that matters for it is all we are given and it is enough.
Rejoice that we've been given the gift of a new day to make the right choices for lives.
Emotional Eating is not a reward. It is punishment! To stop it I must find ways to love myself. But first I must establish, "What is love?" My love mantra is recited when I notice my thoughts are "beating up on me".220
Love = patient & kind, Love doesn't envy/boast not proud/rude/self-seeking/easily angered Doesn't record wrongs/doesn't delight in evil Rejoices in truth. always protects trusts hopes perseveres Love bears/believes/ hopes/endures all things Love never ends & never fails (Corinthians 13:4-8)
Remember, every time something happens in your life, you are there!
"Bad" things don't happen to you and "Good" things don't happen in spite of you.
You are the conductor of your goals. You enjoy the teaching moments when things aren't quite what you'd like or expect ... And, you also revel, rejoice, and reward yourself when things go better than you had hoped.
