7) Visualizing cravings as little beasts and disciplining them by telling them "no" they may not have sugar. That way I do not feel deprived.
8) Decluttering house. It's uplifting and fights cravings.
9) Gardening
10) Enjoying the sunshine.
11) Hearty vegetable and bean soup in a rainbow of colors.
12) Eliminating most wheat products from diet.

I check in on you every once in a while and noted your DH has issues?
You've been through quite a lot in the past years...but then, we all have too!
Life is good and then it's challenging. Keep up your spirits.

Cathy, I didn't know if you heard about the head-on collision accident that I was in. I posted an updated blog about my current injuries. I'm so proud of you for making daily healthy choices and permanent lifestyle changes, resulting in fulfilling positive results! I'm giving you a STANDING OVATION for the goals you have achieved and the progress you continue to make! I'm keeping Rick in my prayers. You are:


emoticon * S * P * A * R * K * T * A * C * U * L * A * R * emoticon


S = Set goals! Develop plans! Take action! Make progress! See results!
P = Promote regular medical checkups to achieve optimum health!
A = Approach each goal with optimism, dedication and completion!
R = Reduce stress! Eat healthy! Drink water! Exercise regularly! Sleep better! Have fun!
K = Keep track of nutrition intakes, fitness minutes, weigh-ins and body measurements!
T = Trust your choices, decisions and actions in all that you do!
A = Add variety to nutrition plan, fitness activities and personal well-being goals!
C = Create a non-food reward system for working hard to achieve healthy results!
U = Utilize behavior modification to break bad habits and challenge yourself to change!
L = Live life embracing healthy choices, positive changes and individual growth!
A = Assemble a support system to help one another stay on track!
R = Record emotions, setbacks, adjustments, progress and achievements in a journal!

Thank you for the SparkGoodie and the support. It's been six and a half months since I lost my sis. There are times when I am ok and then there are times when it hits me like a brick.

BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful
