A New Year - New Journal


Hello J-land!  It's Sharon coming to ya just wanting to start a pick me up spot for myself.

2008----I want it to be great.

I want to lose weight.

I want to be happy.

See?  I told you it was all about ME!

New Year's Day:  Blah.  First full day home from Florida and my heat pump is dead.  Ran the emergency heat all night. 

Deciding to lay off the favorite soda.  I've gained so much weight since Tom and I were married in 1997 and it is telling on me in ways I do not like.

Like bending over to tie shoes or put on socks.

So far '08 is not so great eh?

My Nanny fixed me my requested meal of fried chicken, dry lima's, collards, rice and biscuits.

Then I tried to help Miss T learn to ride her bike.

I don't have the patience for that!

So I rode it.......rode it down to the circle in the nearest neighborhood and around the circle about 5 times.

Can you say Ouch? and Huff and Puff?

That's when I bailed and had the Sundrop!  Comfort drink I guess.

My dinner consisted of yeast rolls and peanut butter.  Real healthy!

January 2 Today I am proud to announce that I went to the mall and walked ALL corridors!  My pedometer read 2025 when I sat down in the car.

There are 4 wings in this mall; 3 are normal and one is long.  I started out in the longest one - the Food Court area - and had a Chik-fil-A combo with fruit and diet lemonade then took off!

The first 3 wings were OK.  Then I started #4 thinking "GO!" - don't let it beat you. 

It actually felt good to complete this walk.

Today:  One 20oz coffee, 1 trail mix bar and NO Sundrop so far!

Lord, keep me on the straight path!!

Well look at YOOOO Sharon!!!  lol this is great, a separate Journal to be positive in, hey let me tell ya, you're already great and if you see yourself as thinner, you already are, done deal.  You wanna see positive change in your life this year?  BE the change you want to see in your life.  Yeah.  It works, trust me friend.  Slip on over to my place and read "Martian Merriment..." it talks about what 2008 will be like, and guess what?  The universe is going into a "balancing act" of light and mystery, things are coming together which never have before, joining, coalesing, getting sharper, brighter, clearer, BETTER.  And that's YOU!  What happens over our heads also happens inside them, so GO for it!  xoxo CATHY
