" There is a way to do it better---find it. " Thomas A. Edison
Lately I've been really tired . Work stress , home stress , financial stress all converged to a mega storm. I was doing some hard core workouts and my body was rebelling big time. Not sleeping well , perimenopause , and not eating healthy because lack of proper food and money to buy any didn't help.
No wonder I was wasn't losing , and craved bad foods , and couldn't sleep. So one fix at a time I had to find a better way.
I found out that when I don't exercise I get more moody more hot flashes and I get less restful sleep . So today a 40 minute walk in the bracing cold with my dog. I wanted to quit after 5 minutes because my shoulder was aching but I told myself that it would ache anyway .
Luckily I got to go to the grocery store after a whole month . We were out of everything . Everyone else was out buying gifts at the mall for Black Friday . I was happily taking my time trying to buy the best nutritious foods , for the best prices . I happily succeeded and saved 75$ in the process .
Found out an interesting fact your thyroid , needs iodine to work well . I have sea salt at home iodine free. I don't buy a lot of packaged , premade foods and such . So I bought some salt which I will use sparingly so hopefully I won't feel like I am freezing and ultra hot and my hair will stop falling out.
I will still do the hardcore exercises I love but only a couple times a week , and will skip anything that gives me pain.
I also plan on eating correctly this week , I will eat more vegetables , and watch my portions . I bought , brussel sprouts, mixed greens, parsnips, carrots, avocados blueberries, bananas, apples , a pomegranate , to name a few .
I will walk away from any stressful situation I can like my whole family being eagles fans and wanting us over for thanksgiving dessert because we are Cowboy fans. All week on the internet they were saying they were wearing their jerseys and how much they hate the cowboys and their fans . The minute I walked in the door they were you came to see the cowboys lose to the eagles, and cowboy fan suck . . I left my food and walked out, and came home. Believe me I won't be back until they learn how to treat people correctly.
So just remember if you get stuck or in a bad situation just find a better way . Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

I am thankful for so many things on this day.
My legs that take me where ever I need to go.
My arms that spread wide for hugs .
My core that helped carry the 11 pound turkey up and down to the cellar where my oven is.
My heart that is ever expanding .
My soul ,that is good thanks to God .
My mind ever sharp and learning .
Friends, family and the people I will meet along the way.
Heart of my Heart
While striding on life's pathway
fill up your day with cheer
just laugh at rainbows small or great,
to banish every fear.
Hold tight to what life offers
content with all you do
for all adventures help create
the treasure that is you.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone I am so happy for the great gift of you . Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

On the eve of Thanksgiving I leave you with this great quote I found .
"Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh ,laugh like hell. And when you get angry get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough. William Saroyn
I found that quite lovely except for the end part. I don't really want to think of that. Have a marvelous Thanksgiving , or a really great day. Enjoy your life , be happy. Love yourself .Spend time with those that love you . Be kind to those that have less . Hugs, happiness and Healthy Living

" God will protect us, but to make sure, carry a heavy club," Gypsy Rose Lee
When I first read this quote I had quite the chuckle. On re-reading it I did discover I do carry a heavy club, not the kind you are thinking of. I arm myself every morning with a positive attitude.
Every morning right after my shower I come to sparkpeople . I always click on the my mood on the start page and I always click a ten. I am not really up yet or sure of my mood, but by clicking on a 10 I am hoping my mood will follow.
Then I visit my teams, Heart Healthy, Simplifying, and Spark Friends. There I click on the team forums and click on things like if you happy and you know it post it. . What is your stress level today 0 Shine like a star Name one good thing you did for your heart today , and others and I always respond positively.
By being as positive as I can I am reinforcing myself to be positive more often. To look for the good in the world and people . I try to solve my problems and not let them take me down.
I also think of the many things I am thankful for . Little things like the sun , my animals Now I am on my way to a positive day .
I feel happier , and when you are it is easy to look for more positive. It just keeps snowballing. So Armor yourself with the Positive. Yes God is by your side , but you do have to help him out now and then. Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living
