It's another great Monday, the sun shinning it is warming up and the trees are blooming.

Over the past few days I had the chance to go to a Christan homeschooling convention and learn about everything that is out there and how people are doing things. I found it very interesting and sad in another.

Over the weekend we had the opportunity to hear a few very good speakers that really made you think and open your eyes to what is out there and what is going on in the world. I found most people there were very closed off and very scared by some of the stuff that what was being talked about. I found this is sad and there is so much to life that people are missing. I noticed many lacked the excitement and passion, there was a lot of serious faces. This made me think that we need to really show them how great life really is and the great abundance God what's to give us. to get out there and experience life and help others. I thought to myself that these great speakers had such an excitement and energy and passion for life, they get it why is it that so many were not. I said to myself (We can all have that and live that life to).

I spent some time listening to Louise L Hay's movie Heal your Life about Affirmations. I am taken back more and more about how we mess life up by what we think and say. So much of life is controlled by that.


Do your thoughts stop you from truly believe you can anything or do they stop you from taking action in your life.

I have noticed the power of Forgiveness is a big one in my life and in many peoples lives. Yes it can be very difficult and the EGO likes to be right and satisfied, but what does that do to us on the inside especially our minds. In Louise Hays book/movie they have shown how what you think and about and hold onto can create a lot of stress within our body's which is why we have so much disease and cancers today.

I feel we need to let go more and be free and forgive and truly live life with passion and love and have fun. Lots more fun. Getting outside and enjoy nature, go to the park with your kids, hiking. I find for our family included we spend far to much time with Computers, TV. Computer Games. We are starting to become numb to real life.

Right out some affirmations on cards you can carry around with you even wright out your favorite quotes. I have found this keeps my focus and my mind positive and on the goal and much more relaxed.

Read them out loud in front of a mirror, there is lots of power in speaking them aloud.

What makes you excited, what are the things that you are passionate about? write them out and make a step by step plan of action in accomplishing those things. Seek out others who have accomplished these things.

Write out a letter for yourself no one has to see it about who and what you need to forgive. If you no there is something you should but not sure exactly what it is, write down and ask yourself what is it you need to forgive This is very powerful

Where is everyone going?

Today while I was driving to pick up my daughter and on the home I was shocked at how many time people would cut me off, glare at me and honk there horn because I stopped for traffic or a person Crossing.

I have noticed since we have Technology people have become busier and busier and people are driving way to fast and very aggressive. We live on a little street and I have watched people drive down going at least 80 if not higher. Rather scary when you have kids outside.

Where is everyone going in such a hurry. I would love to get out of my car and say something.

I find people need to learn Time Management and figure out what is really important in life, and slow down and pay attention to what is going on around them. I watch so many fill up there lives with so much stuff that they forget they have a family, kids or even friends. They are to busy working, busy learning, busy going hear and there casing every new thing out there.

It is very sad seeing how many time our Ambulance, Police and Air Ambulance has to run everyday because people are two busy not to pay attention. Is life really not that valuable? If we all slowed down and simplified our lives there would be less accidents.

Weight loss and Affirmations

Well it's been a week since my last post.

It has been a great day today. The sun has been out and it's 25 degrees and beautiful. My daughter and I sat outside soaking up the sun and getting her school work done.

I have been tested this week as my daughter has been home with a cold. I could have got up early and went to the gym or better yet worked out in the gym in the basement. I did not. I realized I need to plan better and make exercise a bigger priority then it has been.

Despite my challenges I still kept up with the affirmations which have been great. I have been much more calmer this past week then before. and much happier.

I have had lots of energy thanks to this great product I am taking which has kept me going and getting my work done without crashing at 3:00 in the afternoon, Which has been great. Most day's I am dieing for Chocolate or Coffee.

Last night I spent some time talking to some great friends who were reminding me about what is in Coffee and about the cream and sugar I put into it and how that plays a huge roll in weight loss. I would always get a double double and Tim Horton's at least once a day. Many people believe that they put Nicotine in there coffee which would make sense looking at the drive through everyday wrapped around the corners and down the streets.

As of today I am switching over to Green Tea with nothing added. And I am planning to get my workout in tonight and tomorrow early if my daughter has to stay home again. Better planning makes for better results.

I have not checked the scale this week but will tomorrow morning, I plan to put up pictures of me and as I go so we can see the progress of how this is working.

My goals for this weekend and next week

1. Write down the 6 most important things I must do each day.
2. Plan our meals and pre-cook meals for the week.
3. Journal, Meditation/Prayer Reading Daily
4. Affirmations workouts/through out the day.
5. Workouts 5 days and add walking as a family.

Looking forward to tonight as it's Transformation Radio call with Bill Phillips for any of you who remember EAS and Body For Life Contests.

Bill has created another great community with people learning and loseing weight together.

You can listen live at at 10:00pm Eastern time.

Hope everyone is having a Sensational Day.

Love always

Is loseing weight harder as you age or is it not??????

While working out at the gym today a thought came into my head. Is it really harder to lose weight as we get older? I was looking around at some of the older people working out and noticed that the people who were in really good shape were happy and smiling and chatting with other members. Then there was others who were okay, walking slow and looking sad down or angry.

Could it be all in how we think. Really we have been hearing a lot about that and the more I learn about it and how the body works the more it makes sense. Maybe it harder only because as we go through life we typically go through lots of stuff that hurt us, bring us down or ticks us off and then we hang onto that. maybe hanging on to that stuff is what is keeping the weight on. All the stress and fear and worrying is keeping all the stuff in as our body is in panic mode.

It's proven in studies that stress sucks everything out of us, all the vitamins and good things. No wonder we have so much cancer and sickness health problems in the world. We are all hanging on to, to much stuff. We need to learn to let things go.

After spending time reading Louise L. Hay book on You Can Heal You Life. I have been taking the examples and doing the affirmations several times a day. I have noticed a big difference in how I go through my day and things do not bother me as much. Since I been at the gym 4 days this week (which has been a while) I noticed how quick my clothes were loosening up and I felt lighter I believe it's from staying positive and calm and doing the affirmations daily.

So I am going to do a study for the next 30 days. I am going to bring my affirmations with me to the gym and as I am doing my cardio I am going to read them over and over as well as through out my day and practice the art of Letting go and see if that makes a big difference in weight loss.

Check back for the updates.
