Preparing for Success - Tomorrow DAY 1
I've been thinking tonight....
Although day ONE should be a "fast" I know that this would be difficult. No explanation... just a set up for failure (me). Yet, it would be a good idea. But, it should be the day before the 21 day.
Next, I need to make more of a committed time to my 15/15/15. Too many times the day has slipped by and I didn't accomplish my goal.
Then, I need to make sure that the time I commit to is reasonable given my schedule (crazy travel schedule).
Here it is:
Wake up and have my coffee, bowl of Cream of Wheat (<200>
this dovetails into my scripture for the day... which leads into prayer. WOW so efficient and reasonable of a plan IT"S ONLY TAKEN ME 8 Months to get this! But, enough! I got it going now! YEA :)
No matter if it's a travel day, work day, day at home... what ever I CAN DO THIS every single day! And I will do it for the next 21 days!
Then that takes care of the first "15"
The next "15 " is my exercise.... Although since I'm attempting to decrease my BMI (nice, positive way to say lose weight") I will headed for 30 minutes.
I have found that after journalize and getting my scripture for the day I am energized and motivated so, of course it's "stretching time". Now, I know myself. If I say "exercise" I still have a little "tude" doing. So, I say "stretch" and magically.... it turns into exercise. This is true. I get my body moving and it tells my mind "this is good" and next thing I know ... I'm doing it!
Now, I've accomplished my two 15/15's by the time I start my day. YEA!
the last of the three 15's is mostly before bed, because it's reading, studying. Perfect before bed. Keep my book by my bed (which ever I am reading).
This doesn't mean that I'm not reading, practicing piano or Italian during the day, BUT I'm committed for 21 days to read for 15 minutes each night before bed. Something I can learn AND ALWAYS reading the scripture again before I close my eye's and Thank God.
Counting my blessings (instead of sheep, although I've never counted Sheep, oh my what a thought, sheep.... yikes). No matter how the day went.... No matter how I did for the day with making healthy food choices..... I WILL Thank God for the day and the opportunity to do better tomorrow.
Now, although You (whoever you are) thinks ... "hey, what about food (diet)..." go back and read my multi entries in my previous 21 day adventures.
In a "nut shell" - Choose foods with color and nutrition. Journalize everything you eat during the 21 day's. Weigh every morning after you pee (yes I said pee). When tempted to eat a NON nutritional food - STOP "close your eyes" and then say "Only Christ can satisfy my needs".
or "I don't need it, it's not good for me... therefore I don't want it!". OR use the scripture for the day to have God's strength!
I'm still working on doing these things in social settings, (good to recognize weakness so it can be worked on)
But, I have mastered looking at pastries, candies, deserts... etc and saying "they are poison to my body" AND it's TRUE!
There you have it... formula for success!
Salute! To YOUR health and wellness
For such a time as this
John 12:32 (King James Version)
32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
A call to prayer and to make a stand. We face a turbulent time in our nation.
Let's face it with a prayer attitude and outspoken words of Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
AMEN! and Salute!
Never give up

7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Salute! To your Health and Wellness

John 14 (various verses)
1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
23If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
This chapter speaks to me today of
Peace, Love and Hope. Empowerment for a successful life.
These are the words of a living God that if "taken to heart" will guide our life, keeping us daily on the road of Success.
Success in relationship
Success in our personal life (relationship with ourselves)
Hey, what else is there but this - RELATIONSHIPS! It's why God Created us. To have a relationship with Him. We are all about Relationships!
I'm reminded that it's not about what others are to you but what you are to others! The rewards of this quest is in eternity. The satisfaction of this quest is knowing we are the embodiment of Christ to others. He was respected as the king of kings by some, and by others scorned. There is peace in doing what is right.
Whether at home, work or our community it's all about our relationship with Christ that determines our relationship with others. Now that's a successful life! When I leave this earth, it is my prayer and hope that I leave behind a legacy of a life of peace, love and hope. Chapter in John 14 - Words of Empowerment
