In "Secret of the Ages" - Robert Collier writes: "Every organ, muscle, tissue & cell of your body is subject to your sub-conscious mind. They rebuild exactly as the mind directs them. What's the model you're holding before your mind's eye?"
"You cannot evolve and truly blossom spiritually unless you consciously work on forming a collective ambiance of harmony, love, peace and light, in which everyone will breathe and be nourished."

My Goals:
First is to find peace & balance living all alone.

Take care of myself the way I would take care of my children.

Be as efficient, organized, and productive the same way I would perform at a full-time job.

Learn how to Mother myself, well.

Set realistic goals:

Food Plan - definitely use the tracker to keep me focused on correct portion sizes & balanced protein/carbs/fat.

Sit with food, give Thanks, & read a print-out of the food tracker meals to appraise the quality, quantity, and value.

Bless the water I drink and repay the Almighty Source for having clean pure energizing water by showing my Love and Gratitude.

Exercise Goals - I am not ready. Back injury - need to plan out with my doctor. SP says I need a Cardio & Strength Training program to lose belly fat & improve waist to hip ratio & overall appearance and health.

Set up a weekly reward system.

Bed by 11 PM. Read until 11:30 PM. Jon

My Program:

* Food Tracker

* Deal w/ Depression

Refrain from using a setback as excuse to fall off the wagon.

Keep a daily journal on things to be grateful for, and on positive aspects of self, emotions.

Do self exam on progress and why I eat the foods I do.

Build muscle - burn fat - tone skin as the fat melts away.

Keep an outfit out in bedroom that I want to wear, again - try it on every Saturday morning until it fits.
