To be determined to do what is right for your health can be a difficult task if you do not do what is necessary wholeheartedly. Making up your mind to do what is right for your body takes a changed mindset and a redirected focus. Giving up is not an option.

So as I once again decide to improve my health, I have to change my mindset and refocus my direction to do what is right for me and what is right for my body.

I am so thankful and grateful for another chance to get this thing right. I am thankful for His mercies that are new and fresh every morning. I must not dwell on what happened yesterday, but I must focus on what is happening today.

So...I'm back. I am ready! I will do what I need to do to reach my goal no matter how long it takes. I will forgive myself for not making good and healthy decisions about my health.

Today is a new day! I am ready for a change! I cannot give up!!!

    Happy Friday! Love is in the air! They say "love is a many splendored thing", and so I thought it might be a-propose for some Valentine giggles about marriage to get ourselves in the right frame of mind for the weekend ahead. Believe me, this was no half-hearted project for me; I put my whole heart into it! I know you're getting excited, and can heartly wait, so let's get pumpin' . . .

    emoticon After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, 'You know, I was a fool when I married you.”
    The husband replied, 'Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't even notice.”

    emoticon A man inserted an ad in the classifieds: It read: “Wife wanted”.
    The next day he received hundreds of letters.
    They all said the same thing: 'You can have mine.”

    emoticon If a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.

    emoticon "I married Miss Right. I just didn't realize her first name was Always."

    emoticon A husband said to his wife, "No, I don't hate your relatives. In fact, I like your mother-in-law better than I like mine."

    emoticon A woman turns to her husband on their silver wedding anniversary and says, Honey, will you still love me when my hair turns grey?"
    Her husband replies, "Why not? I stuck with you through the other six shades."


    emoticon After finishing our Chinese food, my husband and I cracked open our fortune cookies.
    "You go first", he said.
    Mine read, “Be quiet for a little while.”
    "Now it's your turn", I said.
    His read, “Talk while you have a chance.”

    emoticon My wife just nudged me and said, "You weren't even listening, were you?".
    I thought, That's a strange way to start a conversation. . .

    emoticon An interviewer asked a married couple what their secret was to their long and happy marriage.
    The husband chimed in, "My wife and I always compromise."
    "I admit I'm wrong, and she agrees with me."


    emoticon Shortly before our 25th wedding anniversary, my husband sent 25 long-stemmed yellow roses to me at my office.
    A few days later, I plucked all the petals and dried them. On the night of our anniversary, I spread the petals over the bed and lay on top of them, wearing only a negligee.
    As I’d hoped, I got a reaction from my husband.
    When he saw me, he shouted, “Are those potato chips?”

    I hope some of these made you laugh wholeheartedly! emoticon

    I heartily wish each of you a very Happy Valentine's Day! Enjoy your weekend!

    Happy Friday! It's been a ruff week here. Time to sit down with your cuppa coffee, tea, or whatever, and get your Happy On. I hope your week wasn't too ruff with all the snow and storms. I've been working like a dog all week, and I'm hoping that this week’s dog puns will make you howl with laughter! I can honestly say that I've barely scratched the surface, but I think I found a few wieners for you. Kindly hold your appaws until the end please . . . Here we go!

    We named our dog Rolex because he’s a watchdog.
    He just sits there and watches. . .

    What did the Dalmatian say as its owner scratched its neck?
    Ahhhh . . . yeaaah, that's it! That’s the SPOT!

    I named my new dachshund puppy, Oscar.
    After all - he's an Oscar wiener dog.

    What happens when you cross a rooster, a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle?
    You get a Cockerpoodledoo.

    What’s a dog’s favorite food?
    Any thing that’s on YOUR plate.

    What do you call a frozen dog?
    A pupsicle.

    And here's today’s tip and closing thought for the day:
    Never take your dog to the flea market.

    Enjoy your day, and have a great weekend!
