Hope after breast cancer.

Saturday, October 27, 2012



I love to watch the Pink Glove Dance competitions. I'll sit & watch HUNDREDS of them over several days. They are so encouraging & some even make me cry. I was so blessed that I didn't have to go through as much as other women have had to, but it was hard for me -- a big mountain in the middle of my quiet, routine life, but I made it through. I know I would not be here with all of you had I not had cancer, so for that I am thankful.

As a breast cancer survivor, I can tell you there IS hope. Don't ever give up. Keep fighting with every ounce of strength you have inside of you. When you start to run out of strength, lean on friends & family. I had an amazing support system and I always have God to lean on -- He has NEVER let me down.

I came across this Pink Glove Dance video 3 days ago & it sort of tells a story of hope. It is so amazing -- I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. You might need a tissue.

Stop wishing & start working!

Every time I think of getting something for nothing, I think of the 80s song by the Dire Straits -- Money for Nothin'. (Can you tell I'm an 80s music junkie?) emoticon

Anyway, my parents always taught me that you can't get something for nothing -- if you want it, you have to work for it, so I'm no stranger to work.

Let's get this done, folks. Let this be the LAST time we lose this weight or reach this goal.

emoticon Go team!!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    So true! And you are right... I think I have lost about 30 kgs this year... but it is the same five kilos six times over, and I am back where I started! So today, let's kick start ourselves into a new day, a new opportunity to meet those goals we set ourselves, and become ferociously determined to do all that is necessary!

    I'm an 80's music junkie too. I think it's because I had MTV on about 20 hours a day back then. Good times LOL

Good blog! I hate doing things twice, especially losing weight!

Feeling "Ugh!" today?

Thursday, October 25, 2012



I know I am. The first week back to work after a vacation is always hard. Your sleeping patterns are messed up, your desk might be piled high when you get back, you're tired, so you spend the whole week feeling like you're playing catch-up.

I have to be extra careful during a time like this because I have a tendency to eat some super sweet unhealthy junk. To counteract that, I have lots of healthy snacks in my desk. Ya gotta be prepared.

If you're having an "ugh" day, I hope it gets better & I hope mine does, too. Come on weekend!!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Well, I was supposed to be having the same kind of week as you....but my vacation was postponed due to my new job. So you can look on the bright side that you got one!!

    You are so well organised to have healthy snacks for those craving attacks!

I find that having a photo of my holiday on my desk (where only I can see it) allows me to think back to my holiday and stay calmer. If it is one of me in swimwear it reminds me that I want to keep staying fit and at a healthy weight... for my next holiday!!!

    I think we should start a new trend and go on vacations all our normal working years and then when we're supposed to be at retirement age, we go to work! emoticon
Good luck being back this week!

Isn't it funny that you wait so long for vacation then it's gone so quick when you get back to work? Keep on plugging

Leave yesterday where it belongs . . .

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

in the past. But don't forget to learn what you can from it.



We mess up every single day. It's just human nature. Don't beat yourself up. Apologize to whomever you need to apologize to (even if it's yourself), and move on.

I am so grateful that God's mercies toward me are new every morning. I can start each day with a totally clean slate.

Lamentations 3:22-24 (NLT):

22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

I just want to thank all of you who voted for my blog yesterday. I nearly had coffee coming out of my nose (ouch!) this morning as I was reading my email & saw that I got a popular blog post award. I am truly honored.

All of you encourage me every single day & I thank you so much for that. I am positive that is why this program is such a great success. We are all helping each other work toward our goals.

Blessings to you!!! emoticon emoticon
