I am hoping this blog inspires a desire in you to be at your physical potential. Losing weight in 2013, and setting up a lifestyle that allows us to keep it that way! I want this blog to allow me to motivate and to be motivated!

Mind/Body/Spirit: what is going on personally in these areas-

This My school picture (I am a teacher you know) and my hubby and sons in their football picture. Michael had a stroke of brilliance when he decided to have the photographer take this picture and I love it!!!!  

I want to take stock in where I have progressed to now in the areas of Mind, Body and Spirit. Also, where I am going! Goal setting is huge in attaining the life that you want!  

Mind: I am working on mastering my mental processes when faced with a moment of insecurity (since completing Beth Moore's book - So Long Insecurity). It takes practice to hone the skill of controlling your thought patterns.
I am compiling a list of books to consume this Fall/Winter

Re-reading The Day They Shook the Plum Tree by Arthur Lewis
Redeeming Love by FRancine Rivers
The Help! by Kathryn Stockett
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
The Art of living Consciously by Nathaniel Branden
Nature by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta's series (any book from this)

Reading is so important to keep your mind sharp!
Continued Blogging and journal writing along with keeping up with a clip board tallying my WW points is good use of my brainpower as well.
Writing daily has become so important to me.

I have set my ultimate goal as a loss of about 40 lb.s and I have a strategy planned out to get me there. If I follow my plan with fidelity I will reach my goal!

Working out 4-5 x's a week (cycle class on Tues. and Thurs.)
24 Weight Watcher's points consumed daily
lots of water and vitamins
moderate alcohol use (only special occasions)

I need to distance myself from a previous stronghold (spiritually speaking).
My heart has been hardened and I am dealing with some depression issues. I feel that there is a link between NOT honoring the importance of all three areas (mind,body,spirit) and how I have been sinking in the past 2 months. I have had the best of intentions but not followed through.

I am going to make 6:30 am to 7am my bible/prayer time
Trying to exhibit self-control and discipline with conscious connection to inner wisdom that God supplies (live more aware of the connection)

There you have it --- goes back to July when I was getting the hang of shifting my perspective spiritually by saying "OWN IT", "STRESS LESS", AND "ENJOY LIFE".
My goal here is to reassess where I am going and reprioritize my life.

Looking for that simple abundant life that is right in front of me.

Equal focus on the things that make me who I am: using talents and skills for creating a joyful life!

I hope you  reassess and set goals in the areas of mind, body, and spirit as well.


  1. Gods richest blessings as you honour Him threw your marriage your kids and your LIFE!

  2. Wow...That is a proactive stance on life. I like it. Good luck and I will be praying for you.
