You know until you can love yourself just the way you are...warts and all...it is hard to love others. As women and mothers we are taught to take care of others and put others before ourselves and in the process we sometimes lose ourselves. Lets all learn to love and do for ourselves some and not feel guilty about it.
On another note. Will be gone tomorrow so probably won't post a blog entry. We are headed to the north part of our state to visit an old friend of mine who owns an iris farm. Going to buy new iris. We are staying in a motel and taking Miss Gracie (doggie baby) and knock around in that part of our state. We live in the Ouachita Mountains but where we are going is part of the Ozark Mountains. I will be back here blogging on Friday. !!!
Choosing to make your life good is like choosing to be happy. I choose a good life and therefore my life is terrific. Wouldn't have it any other way. I may not be rich or poor but I enjoy my life just the way I am.
The first picture is of a Canadian geese pair flying across a lake we visited last week. I thought it so went with this saying.
Now that hubby and I are retired, we don't have near the stress we used to have. And we don't want the stress anymore in our lives. I would rather "stress" my body in getting more exercise or stress my mind in learning new things but when it comes to the stress of dealing with jobs and other people we just don't do it that often.
My new 5% challenge starts today. I have gained 3lbs back in the month between challenges..not good but think most of this was gained this past week leading up to this challenge..like I'm wanting to make up to really cracking down for the next 8 weeks. But this 8 weeks is going to be one I hope and plan to really crack down with myself. With the temps warming up outside, it will make it easier to get outside more and really get some walking time in. Also with fresh veggies and fruit from our garden I know I will be eating more healthy.
So onward and downward (in the pounds).
