I enjoy life with my soul mate and our children. I am grateful for each and every day! As we our soon to be "empty nesters", I look forward to being "newlyweds" again with my husband. We enjoy reading, walking all over the place and relaxing in front of the TV watching a good movie. When sports come on, I move into my sewing room where I dream up, draw patterns and sewing quilts.

I saw this on JOHNMARTINMILES'S page and found it so inspirational! Hope you don't mind John, but your words are strong and hit home.

If at the beginning of every day you were handed 1,440 ten dollar bills and told you could spend them on anything you wanted but at midnight they became non-negotiable and worthless, you would be careful what you spent the money on and you would be sure to spend all of it by midnight.

That is exactly what happens with life. Everyday ate one second past midnight you are giver 1,440 minutes to spend how you choose but at midnight, those minutes are gone and cannot be recovered. The minutes cannot be saved, the must be spent. How many minutes have we squandered during our lifetimes. How many minutes have you spent worrying? See my previous blog on needless worry. The double whammy of worrying is that over 92% of it is useless and the time spent worrying can be better spent with a minimum of thought. When a worrisome situation presents itself, see what category it falls into. If it is in one of the 92% categories,(already happened, not going to happen, is going to happen and nothing I can do about it, even if it does happen, the results are not too bad) Forget it and get on with your life. If it falls into the 8%, ask yourself "What is the worst thing that can happen? then "If the worst thing happens, what will I do?.. Now you know how you will handle the absolute worst case scenario and that you can handle it. In over 92% of the cases, the worst possible scenario will not happen so you can cope with the real results easily.

You know you can handle the worst case scenario so stop worrying and get on with your life. Do not waste any of your precious 1,440 minutes on needless worry.

Don't worry, be happy!

My Goals:
We have one foot in the "nest", as we are getting ready to send our "baby" to college. Since we are beginning a new phase in life, we thought it appropriate to improve the quality of life. Shedding the extra pounds seems like a good starting point.

My Program:
THANK YOU to the entire sparkteam! I had no idea the amount of calories I was eating while away from the table whether cooking, nibbling on anyone else's food or boredom eating. Tracking everything I eat has made me aware of all the unneccesary calories, mostly empty calories. If I'm not sitting, no food for me!

    Hey! Thanks for the comments and the support. The 2 kids I am watching now are 2 and 3 and so far they have been very good for me while mommy and daddy are away. The older 2 (7 and 10) did stay at their dad's house so life is less hectic, lol. The delivery went very well, we now have 2 healthy babies, a girl and a boy. I have not seen pics yet but I hear they are 5 and 6 pounds (don't know exact) and 17 and 17.5 inches. I will probably post a blog with more info later and pics if it's alright with mom. Thanks Ellie.
