I started here in June of 2007; by May 2008 I had lost 52 pounds! Then life sidetracked me and I find myself over a year later having gained back 40 pounds. I've spent too much time trying to get over the fact that I back-slid.

And too much time taking care of everything else but me! It is way to easy to get caught up in what "has to be done" and not do what is really important.

Now it's time to Get Serious!! It's time to Get Back on Track!! It's time to remember that taking care of me is the most important thing!!

    "God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers". ~Jewish Proverb

    May you enjoy your special day with your loved ones, the two and four legged kind. Remember this is your day to take a rest and enjoy others taking care of you. Take advantage of that time by having a moment or two of quiet time for yourself.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon FELIZ CINCO DE MAYO!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This is the day that we celebrate when the Mexican army defeated the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza SeguĂ­n. We also celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. So, celebrate Cinco de Mayo in your own special way. Adios!

    Happy Earth Day! Did you know that in America we throw away nearly 38 BILLION plastic bags a year just in the United States? Take note and do something green for the environment starting today. Even if you do other things, try and take on one more thing to do that will make this world a better place for generations to come. Change to energy saving light bulbs, recycle your paper products, compost, donate old clothing, use a re-usable water bottle or just say no to plastic bags and bottles. Pick something, just one thing to change that you do and keep on doing it. Doing just one thing can make the difference.

    We're learning to take care of our bodies, let's now start with our environment. Celebrate the Earth today!

    Hello there! How was your Easter holiday? The weather over here in Denver will have a slight change to possibly snow overnight. Yep, I said snow. It's actually kind of normal to get at least one more snowstorm as late as May sometimes. Well, I wanted to drop in and wish you all the best this week and give you a quote for the week.

    Think of your body as your autobiography: How do you want yours to read? Start a new chapter today! (Denise Austin)

    My Two Cents Worth: It's never to late to start something new. If you've been slacking or having problems on your journey let it go and start fresh today. That's the beauty of your life, you have the say how it's going to be. You can learn and improve it or let it just be and do nothing. Your choice. Which road will you take? Have a great week!!!
