I am making myself over....mind, body, and spirit...

I am a work in progress to be a better Woman than I was yesterday. I am dedicated and determined to be fabulous, sexy, amazing, and breathtaking.

I walk in FAITH, not fear.

Dear GOD,

Teach Me Self Control...

Your Word teaches that when we truly experience Your
saving grace, we find the power to say no to wasteful
passions and to live self-controlled and productive lives.
But how much I need Your help to overcome my laziness
and self-deception. Teach me and change me, Lord. I
want to become more self-controlled. Today it seems
that self-indulgence is the drug of choice on every corner.
But I don't want my appetites to dominate my life!
You promise to live powerfully through me so that I might
love You and serve others. Now show me how to build the walls of self-control and restraint around my life. I relinquish my rebellious will, which robs me of the self-control You want me to choose.

Thank You for helping me today.

Motivation Tip 6: New year, new you resolution

The most popular New Year's resolution is to find a new job. The second, to get into shape! So, if you're starting out the new year with a commitment to lose weight or establish an exercise routine that sticks, good for you! Use the momentum of a fresh start to make things seem easier.

Motivation Tip 7: Count colors not calories to lose weight

If you need to drop and few kilos and don't know where to get started, stop counting calories and start counting colors. When it comes to losing weight, make sure your plate is piled high with a range of colorful fruit and vegetables. Read on to see why.

Weight loss is not the same at different life stages. The 40-plus woman may need to understand how her metabolism is changing and the impact on weight loss planning.

Whether it be your personal blog or pen & paper journaling, writing can reinforce your decision to lose weight and actually make it easier to stick to your program.
