I'm not here today. Nope. I'm not.


I was invited for "coffee and a chat" over at Melissa's house blog.  I invite you to "click on over" to MaMe Musings (Click Here to Get THERE!) to get in on the conversation. 



Today's topicThe Best Gift I Have EVER Received...




MaMe Musings


The Coffee is on and the company is worth the "click"...I promise!

I really...REALLY Suck at this Weight Watchers Gig!

Ok, so as a follow up to last Monday's post, (if you missed that then you can totally get caught up on my 38th year of life transformation by clicking here) I suck!  Meaning, I am to the left of the road this past week...


By Thursday of last week I had used up all my "extra points" for the week and I just couldn't seem to get through the rest of the days without going over my allotted points for the day....geeeesshhh!

The good news is that I didn't gain any weight but I totally didn't loose any either.  I have to keep reminding myself that this journey isn't about "maintaining" it's about "changing".

Anywho, I did make a commitment to post every Monday and I actually thought about avoiding it...making up some kinda of excuse why I wasn't "weighing in" but that defeats the purpose of my goal of reaching a healthy weigh and being accountable for how I get there.

I am giving it another go.  I will not give up.  I will persevere!!


Happy Healthy Eating Everyone!

Spiritual Sunday- Christmas Everyday


Christmas is just around the corner...I am baffled at where this year has gone.  It's a reminder of how fast time passes and how precious our time on earth is. 



So many, including myself, get "wrapped" up in the hustle & bustle of Christmas,  often forgetting what the holiday is really about.  I found this poem while surfing the Internet and I just had to share it because I think it truly captures the TRUE Meaning of Christmas.  It's not meant to be just ONE DAY of the year...it's suppose to represent the spirit in which we live our lives...each and every day.


Work of Christmas Begins

When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with the flocks,
then the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal those broken in spirit,
to feed the hungry,
to release the oppressed,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among all peoples,
to make a little music with the heart…
And to radiate the Light of Christ,
every day, in every way, in all that we do and in all that we say.
Then the work of Christmas begins.
