Crown

I am beginning a Couch to 5K program this morning. I am certain this will kill me. The old me.

I am excited for the future with this program, and the paths it will open for me.

I am not a runner. Never have been. But I want to get back in the habit of exercising. I know that my body isn’t going to like it at first…maybe never…but it will be good for my mind, body and soul.

What things do you do to stay in the healthy mindset? How are your New Year goals going this January?

Blessings!

I wish that I could say I believe this to be true…But I don’t.  I believe that you need to know your past to be able to correct your future.

I love Edna, and her life suggestions. I just don’t think they are realistic.

What quote speaks to you, but isn’t realistic?  I would love to hear your thoughts.

Blessings.

Hello Fresh Korean Beef BiBimBap

img_9215-1Okay…so we got a discount code for Hello Fresh. To be honest…I wasn’t a big fan of it due to cost, but with the menu selections that were available, I found this recipe for Korean Beef BiBimBap.  I love this recipe, and the ease of preparation presented.img_9216-1I was able to cook to the recipe, and add the amount of spice that was good for me.  I love that!  It was authentic tasting, and perfect for the home cook.Bonus for me:  David is not a fan of Korean food (although, after tasting this, he did agree that is good!), so I ended up making four (4) dishes of this. FOUR! Lunch and dinner with four servings…love my gastric sleeve! And Hello Fresh!!  I now have a good, simple recipe to replicate with my own ingredients (simple ingredients) that I can find at the grocery store.  Have you tried a home delivery package such as Hello Fresh?  Thoughts?

Blessings.

Ten Year Challenge

Ya, so I got caught up in this…

First profile picture:

And then December 2018:

I posted that it is a ten year difference, and 115 pounds!!

So incredibly proud of my ten years. I really am in love with my wrinkles. Really!

What do you love about the last ten years? But really? I am so grateful for my weight loss surgery and the gifts it has given me.

I haven’t been well the past couple of days…but I can guarantee that if I didn’t have gastric sleeve I would be much worse now.

I am so thankful for so many things…but especially my surgery.

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

“Show courage.  People need to see what it looks like.  Show it.  Then feel it.” – Beth Moore

“Stay alert, stand firm…show courage, be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NET)

I need to be more aware of this.  I don’t think that I have courage in most situations, but looking back on an event in my life, I most certainly did.  Can I see if I showed courage? Not really.  Did others see it in me?  I hope so.  I pray so.

I want to show love and kindness on a daily basis.  That is my goal.  No matter the situation, I want someone to say that I have been kind and shown love—that His light shines through me.

Blessings and love.

Road

dolly quote

I know that I have posted this before…but I needed it again.  Discovering the roads that you want to walk down are the hardest.  Paving one should be easier right since it is your path.

Choices…not just the right way or the wrong way…but every decision begins with a step–down a path—but, is it the path you want to be on is the question.

Blessings.

Friday

friday #5 walt

Fridays are typically days for relaxation and reflection….this quote makes me think of something more for a Monday motivation.

So, are you curious for new paths?  Seeking new things?  Trying anything new?  Scared?  Sounds good to me! Ha!

Happy Friday…blessings.
