So it's been awhile..what have I been up to???   I have been making changes....

I joined Weight Watchers again on January 9th and last week I received my 10 pound ribbon:)  I have been getting up every morning (except Sundays:) and jumping on the treadmill for anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes.  There have been many times when I had to really push myself up BUT I do have to admit that I have formed a habit...a good one.  A habit that I now enjoy and really enjoy the results I am seeing. My eating habits (again, that word) have changed and I do enjoy food but more of the good stuff and really none of the bad stuff...unless you count red wine and then I must admit, I still indulge in this on occasion LOL I have a pedometer and I ensure I get a minimum of 10, 000 steps a day.   With these changes I now experience more days of energy, I can see physical changes in my body and I have a bag of double digit pants that I will NOT be wearing anymore:)  I am HAPPY :)

Those of you who are familiar with OLW know how it works:)  My One Little Word for this year is EMBRACE and it has been a help in my focus of changes.  I have embraced thankfulness.  I gave some friends a "best of my days" daily list that was found here:  and have been using one myself.  There are more reasons I have chosen embrace....perhaps I will share them another day:)  By choosing EMBRACE and putting that word into action I have found myself feeling HAPPY

This month I finally got myself going in the direction of volunteering and have begun the process of helping with  the local Hospice program here.  I went to the meeting on my own and really feel that there is a place and purpose for me there.

In the area of creativity I have begun Project Life (I am behind a bit but that doesn't really matter....right?!) I am enjoying the my365 app on my iPhone and am a continuing addict on Pinterest and have brought some friends over as well.

I continue to work on my daily Bible readings and think I would like to join a Bible study group again...

This is going to be a year of change and celebration...a year of happy...a year of embracing

and just because I need to post a's one:
