Do something that makes your heart sing.

Thursday, April 04, 2013



Every day, do something that makes you happy. There are so many things for me to choose from -- the list is practically endless. Find your "heart sing" today.

When I get out of my comfort zone a bit & accomplish something I didn't think I could accomplish, that makes my heart sing.



When I have an amazing workout & push myself a little harder than yesterday, that makes my heart sing.



When I choose veggies over a piece of chocolate, that makes my heart sing.



When I see my hubby's sweet face, my heart sings.



When I hear my favorite song, my heart sings.



Today, find what makes your heart sing. Use that as motivation to head in the direction of your goals & dreams

Blessings to you!! emoticon

    Working in my garden today was a joy, even though it was weeding and clearing out winter debris. I love to muck about in the dirt.

Light at the end of the tunnel.

Wednesday, April 03, 2013



We're all going to have some good days & some bad days. That's when it's important to focus on your big WHY (why you want to reach your goal). If you don't have a big WHY, find one today! Don't wait. It's very important for your success. Your big WHY is your light at the end of the tunnel that you want to work towards every day, choice by choice, step by step, workout by workout.



This body is the only one we have & I feel bad that I didn't take better care of it before now. No time to beat myself up though. It's time to learn from my mistakes & move forward to a healthier & better lifestyle.



Try not to look at the big, big picture of how much weight you need to lose or how much training you need to do for your race, etc. Just work your plan in small chunks. That way it isn't so overwhelming. Set those smaller goals along the way toward your big goal to help you get there.



You & I CAN do this -- together!! emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Exercise bliss!!!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013



Most of you know by now that I'd been sick for well over a week & it started with a stinky, heavily pollinated plant in my office at work. First off was the killer sinus infection, then "chest goop" as I call it. Boooo to asthma!! It turns everything into "chest goop."

Soooooo, yesterday was my first time at the gym in a week & a half. emoticon I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. I was actually a bit jittery as I changed from my work clothes to my workout clothes. I was emoticon from ear to ear.

When I got on that first machine . . . man . . . total bliss!! I felt STRONG emoticon. My muscles had quite a break & they were ready to rock & roll!!!

After my workout was done, I could almost hear my body singing the Hallelujah Chorus!!



No kidding!!! Never in a million years did I think I'd crave exercise like that. I've come to depend on it as my major stress relief & mood booster. Try it!!! I think you'll see what I mean. It might take you a few months to start the "craving" part, but if you keep at it, the craving WILL come. Our bodies were made to move!!

Use it or lose it!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

I understand the craving for exercise and movement just be careful as sometimes you can over do it when that happens.
I know that our bodies were made to stay active and enjoy life.
Have a blessed journey to better health today

April Fool's Day funnies.

Monday, April 01, 2013



So this is what happened to the Easter Bunny! emoticon No wonder he didn't show up on my doorstep. That's probably a blessing -- I don't need all that candy.

Beware of "fast" food.



Don't forget to eat healthy today. emoticon



Finally, make sure your funny bone is working.



Have a fantastic day!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

One step at a time.

Sunday, March 31, 2013



When you wake up in the morning, be determined. Do what you need to do to work toward your goals. Then, you can rest your head on your pillow at night with satisfaction.



Always focus on how far you've come & how much better you feel.



Remember why you started!! You need to find your big WHY. Keep that in front of you always.



Please, please, please, don't put your happiness off until tomorrow!!



For those of you who celebrate, I wish you a blessed Easter!!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
