Yesterday was pretty awesome day because I got to go see the amazing Mo Kenney with Joel Plaskett and The Emergency in concert. And I got to take my niece to her first ever concert! It was an awesome-tastic experience! My boyfriend wasn’t too keen based on the tunes I had played for him but even though I had never seen these performers live before I knew they were going to be good and wow! They did not disappoint!

#1: I Am Wealthy

Day 1 Monday April 27, 2015, SparkPeople food tracking. Eating not enough is just as unproductive as overeating. Today I will do better.
Day 1 Monday April 27, 2015, SparkPeople food tracking. Eating not enough is just as unproductive as overeating. Today I will do better.

So yesterday I restarted my SparkPeople journey and also took a few minutes to reset my vibration. I wrote 20 positive affirmations, enlarged them so they filled an entire page and then printed three copies.

The first copy I taped to the ceiling right above my bed so it’s the first thing I will see every morning. The second copy I taped to the shelf in my bathroom so it is the thing I see when I go to the toilet. And the third copy I taped to the wall right above my computer screen at my desk, so I see it all day while I am working. I have been constantly repeating the affirmations to myself and out loud.  Continue reading “#1: I Am Wealthy”

Go Big or Stay Home

Today I am grateful for the new to me washer and dryer I got on the weekend.
Today I am grateful for the new to me washer and dryer I got on the weekend.

I haven’t written in awhile. I hurt my arm in January. At first I thought it was just a sore muscle (I had used the Wii Fit and done some tricky yoga poses). But it has turned out to be something more serious. A frozen shoulder, apparently. I have had one appointment with an osteopath and I have another scheduled later this week. She helped immensely for a couple of days about a month ago. I am very much in need of a break from the pain, so even if I only get a few days respite again, it is well worth the expense.

I kind of feel like I’ve been losing my mind. Again. Still? I don’t know if it’s just the constant physical agony, the long depressing winter that doesn’t ever seem to end here, or what. But something has got to give. I can’t continue this way. I have been very depressed. I have gained 40 pounds since this time last year, 30 of those just since Christmas. I have been feeling very vulnerable and helpless. That’s never a good thing.

So today, even as I stand up to my knees in the rubble of this chaos, I am taking hold of the reins and pointing this horse and buggy on the path to abundance and gratitude. I logged into SparkPeople. I weighed myself. I put on my Spark activity tracker. I tracked my water and breakfast (even if it was only coffee). I set new weight loss goals. I am breathing deep and going to work.
