One step and one day at a time

Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so ...
Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado.

Life has dealt me plenty of punches starting with my first surgery at the age of 5. At 9 I had a brain tumor removed that damaged my right optic nerve and destroyed my pituitary gland. As a result I'm legally blind in my right eye and have to take medicines for the rest of my life to make my body function normally. I've had multiple surgeries and broken bones over the years since then but I will not let anything stop me from becoming a better me physically and mentally.

I'm eating according the Fast Metabolism Diet. It's been a life saver for me. I finally found an eating plan that is helping me to shed unwanted pounds of fat from my body. Thanks to my virtual Spark Mom, FLORIDASUN, for blogging about how much success she had eating according to the Fast Metabolism Diet! If she had never blogged about her success I would have never tried it.

emoticon WHAT IS YOUR MONEY WORTH? emoticon
Too many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have,
to impress people they don’t like............Will Rogers.

Money is not the most important thing in the world. Love is.
Fortunately, I love money............Jackie Mason

Many people are so poor because the only thing they have is money.

Don't think money does everything, or you are going to end up
doing everything for money.

My quote for you today is by Marcia Wieder:

"Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer."

So, here's to having a dream filled weekend! emoticon emoticon

Every minute you spend on feeling physically better through exercise, stretching, nutrition and even sleep will be multiplied times 10 and returned to you at a later date.

It’s supposed to take 21 days before doing something constantly
becomes a habit.
Just think: 21 days without binging, can become a lifetime.
21 days of going to the gym will make you not even think twice
about going anymore. 21 days of saying “no thank you” to sugary treats.
All it takes is 21 days. Why not start now?!
