LIVING IN THE MOMENT 2017--

I AM NOT GOING TO WORRY ABOUT YESTERDAY
I CANNOT CHANGE IT

I AM NOT GOING TO WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW
FOR IT NEVER COMES

I AM "ONLY" GOING TO WORRY ABOUT RIGHT NOW!
WHAT HAPPEN 5 MINS. AGO IS PAST
WHAT HAPPEN NEXT MINUTE NEVER HERE.

THAT ONLY LEAVES THE NOW!!! AND I WILL SUCCEED!!

10/23/17 Hi! Think it has been almost a year since i was here. I'm not a happy camper. It seems like I'm never going to lose this weight. Been trying to shake it since 2008. I keep giving up! So here goes again another try. Someday one of these have got to take! I remember when I try to quit smoking I quit over and over again without success until one day I succeeded so hopefully that's what's Happening Here. So this should be my successful round. I also took long breaks in between trying to quit smoking but one morning I woke up decided that was it I quit and never smoked again. Wish I could do that with food but we can't and I think that's what makes it harder to lose weight is because we can't just quit food. We need food to stay alive. So here goes to another round; round one and I don't know how many attempts throughout the years but here goes. Wish me luck!!

My Program:
I try to lose at least 1# per week.

1. Track all of my food to stay under 1300 calories
2. Minimum of 10 minutes of fitness daily and at least 90 minutes weekly
3. Positive self-talk at the beginning of each day (note I love this goal!!!)
4. Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies daily
5. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily
6. Develop a plan for eating out at restaurants.
7. Plan & follow menu
Every 10 lbs I loose I get a reward! Last reward was dumbbells; I plan to be down 30 lbns by Jan and then I'm getting my haircut and colored! That will make 30 lbs down. DONE! Need to lose 7 more to get hair done again- (every 30lbs) goal set for 5/1. I'm getting my hair done 05/02!! Another 30 gone!

    I know what you mean about being a little off. I have been out all day and I am going bowling tonight. I have spent too much money today. But I got new drapes for my living room. Mine are in shreds they are only 34 yrs. old. I think it was about time. The just for fun. I got a new shower curtain, rods rug and towels and then a soap dish and a cup and I am going back for the tooth brush holder. It is all going to be a girly bathroom. After all it is my house and I can decorate for me and not me and my man. Miss him though but it has been a good weekend so far. emoticon

    This was a picture of one of those Bible Verses. I'm not sure if you will be able to see it but I will try posting it on my page and maybe you can see it there.

    Hello and thanks for posting on my page
    Great to hear that you are out walking the dog
    We have been having very frigid temps here in MN so going outdoors has been limited
    By weekend it will be in the 30's but then will rain/sleet or snow so will have to see if our two pups get a walk they are getting rather crazy being housebound
    Take care and have a great day
    One day at a time love prayers peace
