Amazing Wednesday

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Today, was an amazing day. I was able to conquer the brunch buffet at a meeting that I attended and I feel wonderful. I stared the dessert trays from left to right and reminded myself of my journey through “self-talk” and I moved on. I am so thankful for the “Tame your Sweets Challenge”--it works. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Pr. 18:21 NKJV).

Enjoy the Journey

Thursday, February 28, 2013

“Just for Me” February Challenge is ending so today I am reflecting on everything I did this month just for me. Each day, I tried to do something to nurture me and I think that I have been successful in doing just that. When we take the time to care for ourselves and love ourselves, we make better choices; not only in our eating but in other areas of our lives as well. I am thankful for all of my Sparked Friends that have encouraged me and I hope that we will continue to think of doing things just for ourselves every day. Life is a journey, enjoy the ride. Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." emoticon

    Such truth, "When we take the time to care for ourselves and love ourselves, we make better choices; not only in our eating but in other areas of our lives as well." Thanks for the reminder.

Pink Tulips

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

”Just for Me” February Challenge. Today I brought some pink tulips. I have always loved tulips and I can remember my mom putting the buds out in the winter for beautiful spring blooms. I remember in school studying about Holland and the beautiful tulips that grow there. Although tulips are not perennials, I remember one year in which my mom’s tulips returned without my mom’s replanting them. My mom was so surprised and happy about the occurrence that spring. She had double tulips that year. My tulips are nice and they really cheer up my room. It is grand when someone buys you flowers, but it is special when you do it just for yourself. "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." 1 John 3:18 NIV emoticon emoticon

    Tulips return every year. periodically you have to dig them up and separate the bulbs or they just get all clumped together. They too are one of my mothers faves

New Exercise Clothes

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

“Just for Me” February 2013 Challenge. Today, my favorite department store had a great sale, so I found a nice exercise outfit that I had wanted earlier but I did not want to pay the price that it was selling for. Girls, you know we love a sale. As I was getting ready to check out, I saw one of my water aerobics class members, who shared with me that her coupon was greater than mind. We checked with the cashier and she said that “the share” was not a problem, so she was able to get me a bigger discount. Wow, I got the exercise ensemble that was on sale at a larger discount at my favorite store, great day! Psalm 5:12 “For You, LORD, bless the righteous one; you surround him with favor like a shield. “(HCSB) emoticon

Five Minutes

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

“Just for Me February Challenge. Today I exercised 5 extra minutes, I don’t think that 5 extra minutes really made a difference in my caloric burn for the day, however I felt good doing 5 extra minutes of exercise to add to the fitness tracker for the day. Who knows, those 5 extra minutes may put me over the top at the end of the week. Psalm 18: 36 “You enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped.” emoticon

    I totally get your mindset. I do a similar thing when working with the trainer. If he says do 15, I do 17. He understands that the practice of adding a bit more pushes me mentally to commit my all to the activity. Go for it!
