Why you shouldn't give up.

Wednesday, May 08, 2013



Did you mess up yesterday? No problem!!! Just learn from your mistake & move on because:



You are not your mistakes. We are all human & we all mess up:



After I've had a bad eating day, the next 3 days or so, I eat at the lower end of my calorie range & step up the exercise a bit. No big deal. Besides:



Don't quit!



Don't quit! (Yes, I said that twice for effect). emoticon



Keep going!!



You might be close to the diamonds (you are the diamond in the rough -- through this journey, you're trying to find the real you). emoticon



I meant to put this photo in twice -- again for effect. emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Kitchen workout?

Tuesday, May 07, 2013



You can work out hard in the gym all you want, but if you don't work out harder in the kitchen, the work you just did in the gym is a wash.



So, get outta your way!!! Let's get going!!



Work hard in the gym:



Work harder in the kitchen (doesn't this look yummy?):

I completely forgot to have breakfast this morning because I was arguing with my 7 year old fashionesta about what she was going to wear today. I grabbed a container of strawberries from the fridge and ate them at work this morning. No choices since I had nothing else. They were yummy and I'm feeling yeay me!

Life is short & change is a good thing.

Monday, May 06, 2013



During our short life time, we go through so many changes. We often look at change as a bad thing, but it can often be so good.



As we change, we are recreating ourselves.



Master the changes, don't let them master you.



There will be some things we can't change -- we just need to learn to let those things go.



Through all the changes in our short lives, make sure you live your best & most important day ever -- TODAY!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

I believe in you!!

Sunday, May 05, 2013



I know this is a hard journey. I'm on it with you & the scale hasn't moved for me in awhile even though the measuring tape has been moving a bit. I know that you can do this & so can I -- it just takes time.

I hope that you believe in yourself. That is so important!!



If you don't believe in yourself, you won't get very far, even though I believe in you. emoticon

Let's be done with our excuses & "Just Do It!" ~ Nike ~



You will struggle, I will struggle . . . that's just part of the learning process on this journey. The struggle makes you stronger!! Think of a baby bird trying to break free from its shell . . . or the caterpillar breaking free from its cocoon so that it can become a butterfly. If someone helps the bird or the caterpillar, it won't live. As much as we would like for it to be easy, it can't be -- you need this struggle & so do I. Bummer, huh? emoticon



Even through the struggle, search for the positives.



We can do this!!! emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Sometimes you need to slow down.

Saturday, May 04, 2013



Life can be hectic sometimes. I know all about it -- I live in one of the most fast-paced & stressful areas in the U.S. Everyone is in a hurry & no one is ever home. It can be exhausting . . . if you let it.

After having breast cancer, I decided it was time to slow down & enjoy life more. One of the hardest things for me to learn to do was to say "no" to people in my life who wanted me to commit to something that would add more to my already full schedule. A lot of people don't understand. All they see is that we don't have kids & we should have plenty of time to do "their" agenda.



What makes you happy?

Challenge: Slow down & smell the roses today. Take 10 minutes & do something just for you -- something you enjoy that you have put on the back burner for a long time.

Additional challenge: Find out what makes you happy & do more of it starting today.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

  This is goo advice.

I'm glad that you came to this conclusion to actually savor and enjoy your life. it does seem that sometimes; it's that sort of health problem to wake us up.

I'm also wondering where your one of the busiest community is... because here in Silicon Valley ( South Bay ), it is ridiculous how busy people are. Like the jokes about rat races.

I mean it can take you weeks and months to get together with someone. How many times have I considered having a dinner or bar-b-q or dinner with a potential fried. We finally get together and they are moving.it's not much better with actual friends.
