Happy New Year!!

Lorraine An attitude of gratitude makes all the difference. According to aerodynamic laws, the bumblebee cannot fly. Its body weight is not the right proportion to its wingspan. Ignoring these laws, the bee flies anyway.

Today is take off Tuesday! NO, that doesn't mean take the day off, it means today we launch ourselves into the year with a sonic boom! We can do it, WE ARE WORTH IT!

I am the healthiest I have ever been in my life! I have more energy than i know what to do with at times. I can't believe that I was on the brink of death, living in a wheelchair unable to do things for myself. Surgery saved my life!

May each day be filled with good decisions but if we stumble then we don't beat ourselves up we just start again! We are human and we will mess up. We just have to remember that we can dust ourselves off and keep going. Just don't ever give up!

Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have and where they are.

Remember that the scale isn't the only way to measure weightloss success!

Had a nice birthday lunch with Hubby. We walked there, over a mile, so we got our exercise. hubby and I use to walk a lot, I need to get him doing that again. I also walked to Starbucks this afternoon for my free birthday drink, you get one when you have a gift card. My good friend Gary gave me one for christmas.
Hubby and I are staying in tonight. They set off fireworks at 9 and 12. Hubby is going out at 9 I am staying in too cold.

I'll be hanging out with Jesus at my place tonight. It's been about 10 years since I went "out"...and while it was fun and I loved the dancing...I only drank water and got so dizzy at 11:00 I had to go home! Boo! I have Menieres and it's been a wild ride I'd not wish on anyone! I have some hearing left on the left side for which I am SO thankful. I can muddle through at work...and am so blessed to still have my job!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Happy Birthday Katherine! emoticon emoticon emoticon May it be blessed from beginning to end!

I got up at 2:30 again, but I went to bed early. I have been de-cluttering my clothes closet, cleaning the kitchen and I just cooked up a skillet of breafast burrito stuff. I had some potato from last night and a small carton of egg beaters (SW style..Yum!) that needed to be used up. I had a bit of cheese to add in....and rolled up 6 on WG tortillas. So I reckon one of those is breakfast today!

I'll get my paperwork finished and clear my desk for the new year. I have boxes to do up for 2012 files. Not only do I need to clear my desk...I need to clean it! I need to do a files purge at home as well. I didn't do one last year.

Have a blessed and wonderful day, all...wherever you are....

Happy birthday Kathryn. Hope you will have a nice day tomorrow at lunch with your husband. I don't like to go out on New year's eve because the traffic can get sort of crazy. But since you are going out for a lunch in the afternoon, hopefully you wont have the traffic problem.

Tomorrow is the last day of 2012 and my birthday. Hubby is taking me out to chinese lunch. We have gone there before and we order the same thing so I know what I am eating. I will be having some hot and sour soup that I just love. told Hubby I will not eat it all at the restaurant but will take the rest home for dinner. I will also be having two stir fry, but will eat just a little with steamed rice. Can't eat big meals like I use to.

Good Morning Everyone!

Had a bunch of bundles of joy join us in bed this bright and early morning.....

Colleen I hope you get use to the CPAP soon. My CPAP drives me crazy but I know I need to use it. I do so good for a while then my nose will stop up and I will get out of the habbit and it's a battle to start over again. emoticon

Joyful, my daughter started weight watchers this morning and I am playing with the idea of joining her. I did real well the last attempt but I stopped measuring and weighting everything.

Bren, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you as well and all the best for your new year!

Talk to Hoosiergirlindy. She has one and may have some advice. Lioness822 also has one and is on here daily- easier to get ahold of. Her name is Lori.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.
200 plus lbs lost without surgery, crazy diets, or extreme exercise- so have hope!

I did put the black eyed peas in it! It's so good...I bought lovely soup mugs at Wal-Mart and will bring one to the office to use. Less messy than pouring it from the container I heat it in...into a bowl. emoticon I love soups and it helps me get my quota of veggies! Yours sounds good too! I have a lot of stuff in my freezer and I made a list of things to do with it...you just gave me another idea.

I often add picante sauce, extra LS chicken broth or LS V-8...to perk it up as I heat it up. Yum!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Blondee, kale and bean soup sounds good and I think you can substitute black eyed peas for beans, I am warming up the vegetable and pork soup I made the other day, Hubby really liked it.
Paul, great info, I hate instant mashed potatoes my home made ones are ten times better.

I am back on track today after not tracking and eating Christmas candy, it is all gone now and I can do without candy until Valentines day.

I like that...simple is another good word. I plan to go through cupboards and bins, freezer and fridge...to weed out trouble. Too much trouble has been...uhm..consumed already, so is no longer a problem. I just need to be sure I don't bring any home with me when I shop again.

I'd like to get my shopping down to once a month, as my budget allows for (without using plastic)...and it will help me use up what I have on hand, cook at home, still share with Mom and brother...but live more sensibly and frugally. emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Good Morning......
Wow my 2 year old granddaughter is a VERY early riser, not as early as you BREN thank goodness but she is all smiles and always (ungy).... I strained the tendons in my thumb last night and still haven't figured out how exactly. I am just about useless with only one hand.


Bren..... I have yet to try KALE. I think I will try the recipe for kale chips this week. TY for the reminder and TY for being so upbeat and energetic. I really needed that this morning! emoticon

Carol..... I will be praying that your stress test results turn out good for you. I hate stress tests. They don't tire me out but I do feel the results for a while afterwards.

Paul..... I am the worlds worst at processed foods. I always have good intentions but those usually fall short very quickly. Staying away from processed foods is going to be one of my goals for the week I think....

Today, is just a Simple Saturday!! Although maintaining a healthy life is not simple, several components of it can be made simple, thus making it simpler to stick to. Processed foods are awful for you, so get rid of them! Instant mashed potatoes, boxed side dishes of all kinds. Yes those are simple to prepare, but the nutrition levels are absolutely horrible! It's not always simple to go to the store when you need fresh items, so make it a fun trip. I know that sounds funny, but people in our store think I'm nuts because of my smile and the way I look at and check out my produce. Water is also not simple, trust me I know. But it can be! Brewed or iced tea count toward your water consumption, did you know that? Or add a little lemon juice to it for a little kick of flavor. That's my schpeel for today. Make it a Sparktastic day!

I am the healthiest I have ever been in my life! I have more energy than i know what to do with at times. I can't believe that I was on the brink of death, living in a wheelchair unable to do things for myself. Surgery saved my life!

Good morning team Indygirls. Went for a stress test yesterday and afterwards, I didn't feel well...so I spent the rest of the day in bed. I'm awake early this morning and feeling much better. After reading some of your post, I think most of you are doing very well. Hoping everyone will be successful in 2013. emoticon

You made my day Joyful!! You never know what a word of encouragement does to lift spirits, put a smile on another's face and give hope. You have a gift of encouragement! Bless you emoticon Your "name" suits you to a T...heehee!

I couldn't get back to sleep this morning, so I got up at 2:30, to do laundry and get a pot of kale n' bean soup going. It's become my favorite. This is batch number 8 emoticon BUT...I only had one can of my white beans to put in it emoticon and am wondering if I could uhm...substitute a can of black eyed peas for the second? I'd bought tons of no salt added diced tomatoes, but not enough of my beans. I'm going to cook up some northern beans, so I'll have some on hand for the next round. The recipe I got from allrecipes, calls for like 3 cups of kale...I use the whole bag!! I love this stuff... emoticon

Have a wonderful, blessed day all...
Bren

Today is Fill 'er up Friday!

Today focus on filling up those water glasses several times to get at least 8-10 glasses of water in. Then fill your plates, your cupboards and refrigerator up with lots of veggies and fruits and dump out those processed foods! Finally, fill up your menus with 2-3 new recipes from Spark Recipes that you would like to try next week.

Have a Sparkerific day!
