Count your rainbows.

Friday, February 08, 2013



Happy Friday, everyone!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

The last couple of weeks at work have been tough. Whew! It's been super crazy busy. Sometimes, I just need a break, but the work isn't going to get done with me sitting there looking at it, right? emoticon

I was thinking this morning . . . I am so blessed that I have a job. So, while there are thunderstorms, I choose to count the rainbows.



While you're counting your rainbows, don't forget to count your blessings.



And you can always throw in a little chuckle here & there. emoticon



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Indeed, we need to count our blessings everyday and thank GOD for such blessings.
Good day.

" Know what's better than eating that thing you've wanted for days? Losing that weight you've wanted to lose for years." It was very timely for me. Thanks.

Choose your hard.

Wednesday, February 06, 2013



Yes, sometimes this journey we have chosen is hard. I'm not going to lie about that. I have to keep my goals constantly within view to stay motivated. I have to be determined every day. If you need help with motivation, do a photo collage & look at it several times a day. Include photos of you looking slimmer. If you don't have any, use photos of slim people -- the photos don't have to be of you. I have before & after photos on my collage of people who have lost a lot of weight. In your collage, include reasons why you want to lose weight, or eat healthier foods, or whatever your goals are (run a marathon, run a half marathon, etc.).

Don't make excuses. Just do what you have to do to reach your goals.





Keep trying. Keep pushing.



Keep stepping.



Don't forget to be yourself. emoticon



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Don't let it end like this!



Let it end more like this:



Or this:



Focus on lifestyle change:



Always be positive!!



And do not ever, ever, ever, EVER give up!!!



You CAN do this! Remember, slow emoticon is still progress.

Don't let a setback become a failure.

Monday, February 04, 2013



Your health IS worth the effort. YOU are worth the effort. Please, never forget that. emoticon

Has something been weighing you down (other than your weight)? Maybe it's time to let it go so that you can finally fly.



Remember, you are loved!!



When I am struggling & can't seem to get things moving, I turn to God. He is such a blessing to me & He has never let me down. One of the hardest things to learn is to praise Him during the tough times, but once you learn that lesson, you will never be the same -- your life will never be the same.



We had communion at church yesterday & I thought this was so cute!! It would add a little calorie burning kick to things. emoticon



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
