Choices, choices, choices!!

Monday, February 25, 2013



There are lots of things we can make choices about. Choices about whether we exercise or not, what kind of exercise we do, choices to eat healthy foods . . . or not. We make hundreds of choices every day.



Choices about attitude:



Choices about circumstances, which can be connected to our attitudes:



Choices about our limitations:



Today, stop & think about the choices you make before you make them.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Undercover 6-pack. ;-)

Sunday, February 24, 2013



So true!! You can work out all you want, but the kitchen is where all the good (or bad) stuff happens.

I've been working on my undercover 6-pack for awhile & I have a long way to go, "but I won't back down, gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around. ~ Tom Petty ~

Be careful what you eat.



Remember, you are what you eat.





If you're doing everything you're supposed to be doing & nothing "appears" to be happening, remember this:



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    It has only been very recently that I have really understood the importance food plays. I have always eaten pretty healthy so I never thought much of it. It has only been since I have been logging that my weight has moved. Amazing. How could I have not understood? GREAT blog.

Live each day to the fullest.

Saturday, February 23, 2013



Life can be uncertain at times. We are never promised a tomorrow. One of my SparkFriends (A-New-Tara) passed away last Saturday, Feb. 16. She was a very vibrant lady. She was in the midst of writing 28 days of gratitude on her blogs. What are you thankful for today?

We never know what life will bring, so make sure you live for today.

IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER
by Erma Bombeck (written after she found out she was dying from cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."

There would have been more "I love you's." More "I'm sore's."

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute...look at it and really see it, live it and never give it back. Stop sweating the small stuff.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Erma was a very wise women who gave great advice.

It is easy to get caught in a trap, while there we need to remind ourselves how to get out by keeping things positive.

The art of living.

Thursday, February 21, 2013



You are destined for greatness. You may never become President or King or Queen or Prime Minister, or hold some other lofty position, but you are destined for greatness where you are -- in your homes, among your families and friends.

Don't just "settle."



Be mindful of the doors you open & close.



Take care of your body, it's the only one you have.



"Greatness" is not just for the chosen few.



Today, go out & live -- go out & be great. I know you can do it.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
