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.

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

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.

    I am so glad I found your page. We have so much in common! We are similar weights, and like you, I want to be a smaller size. I believe that calories are like money, but further, I believe calories and money are like votes and should be spent on what you believe is good. I also believe it is important to indulge once in a while because this is a permanent lifestyle and I can't go the rest of my life without chocolate and ice cream. Lastly, I recently starting gardening and growing my own food, although in a much smaller garden than yours! To supplement, I've subscribed to veggie boxes which are offerings from local farms that I pick up once a week at the grocery store. I'm supporting local farms, getting the freshest local produce, and learning about new vegetables I've never seen before!

    It sounds like you are having great success with your gluten free diet. I'm afraid that's not for me, but it gives me a little more motivation to be careful weighing, and tracking.

    Thanks for all your posts!
