“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.” ~Christopher Reeve

Don't say, 'If I could, I would.' Say instead, 'If I can, I will.'
It is our philosophical set of the sail that determines the course of our lives. To change our current direction, we have to change our philosophy, not our circumstances. I used to say, 'I sure hope things will change.' Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change. Disgust and resolve are two of the great emotions that lead to change. We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons; inspiration or desperation. If you don't like where you are, change it! You're not a tree. "
- Jim Rohn

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, or go through it, or work around it."
~Michael Jordan


Hi, I am challenged with Multiple Sclerosis. It is a disease where there is no cure. Each and every day I climb the mountain trying to beat the disease. It eats away the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. As a result my muscles do not get the feedback they need to move as easily as you do. My left side is the weakest and the right side is catching up. When it flairs I can become totally paralyzed. Unfortunately it seems to flair often.

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much.

Choosing to embrace a positive attitude each day.

My goal is to improve my health with lifestyle changes. I will loose weight and improve cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility.

Exercise is THERAPY for all the challenges and trials life throws my way!!

I try to stay upbeat, cheerful, optimistic no matter what challenges face me. My wonderful, loving, kind husband is my Hero. He retired from being a Fire Battalion Chief to stay home to help take care of me. He is my inspiration, my motivator, my encourager to exercise. He catches me when I trip, stumble, and fall. He is the most extraordinary husband in the world.

My Kittie does regular pet therapy with me, encouraging me with her loving purrs, pats with her paws. She senses when I am not feeling well and cuddles with me for hours when she would rather be out.

Fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round - remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.
James Corbett

"There is inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything that she puts her mind to. There is a beauty in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isn't thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences, who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and move on." - ~www.operationbeautiful.com~

Thanks for clarifying! I actually googled it and coconut oil is not the same thing as coconut butter, but in *some* recipes they are interchangeable.

"Coconut oil is JUST the oil that is extracted from the meat. Coconut butter is the whole meat of the coconut pureed into a creamy butter. Coconut meat (by nature) is approximately 65% oil."

Sounds like in this recipe you could do either, but now I'm curious about the coconut butter!
