Just a side note:
I had internal and external dialog with myself today. As I thought about the chocolate covered pretzels that I bought (yes, one of those... I can justify this as a "not to unhealthy snack so it's ok to buy". (The devil made me do it! ) remember Flip Wilson... exposed our "excuses"

Internal-"I don't need it"
Internal- "It's my choice, but ..... (pause) I don't need IT."
Then I looked up and took a deep breath - refocused and said out loud... "It's not a healthy choice and I really Don't WANT IT!"
Then I spoke out the POWERFUL, Strengthening words.... "THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH".

Ok, Done.... I didn't eat it...

Now, the important step is to finish it with "I happy happy and feel SOOOO good that I did something good for ME, That makes me feel Great, Thank you Lord for the strength!".

Re Affirm SAY IT OUT LOUD!!!! hear what you know.... what you KNOW is TRUE, LOVELY, and Good report!

Philippians 4:8 (King James Version)

8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Also, I attempted to put on this site a 15 minute yoga stretch that an 80 year old could do. But, alas I couldn't. So, it's currently at the grocery store - Prevention Guide "Outsmart Diabetes" Title of Article is "Lower Stress with Yoga" 6 simple moves to help tame your tension and even Flatten your belly By Naomi Barr.

I did it!!... SO VERY EASY!!! and (then I said out loud and affirmed !) "It felt so GOOD for me to do this, YEA for me!"

Oh, I think I'll add Beauty Tips to this 21 days blog:

"your never fully dressed without a smile!" oh, ya sing it Annie:)


SWEET! Day 5

Psalm 104

33I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. 34My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.

There is a song we use to sing at Church "Turn your eye's upon Jesus"

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

Spiritual: Oh, Lord I pray today that my focus is on YOU! As I am tempted to not do what I know I should do, give me the strength through your promises. May I look Up when tempted to be lazy or choose unhealthy foods, and find strength in YOU. I acknowledge my strength lies in YOU. AMEN
Today, when I want to reach for a food that isn't a healthy choice, I will STOP, Look UP, take a deep breath and quote today's scripture (yes, I will memorize this scripture!). Then I will TRUST the Lords promises to give me strength to make healthy choices today

"My meditation of him shall be sweet" Psalms 33:34

I will be satisfied when I seek something sweet to eat as I look up & "meditate on HIM" and his promises.

Also, May I say I don't completely believe in "Detox Diets"
For more info on why I say this go to

But the science behind the detox theory is deeply flawed, says Peter Pressman, MD, an internal medicine specialist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The body already has multiple systems in place--including the liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract--that do a perfectly good job of eliminating toxins from the body within hours of consumption.

Yet, I do say that when we carelessly bombard our bodies with Processed foods, fried foods, Non nutritional foods (sweets, candies...) We really tax our bodies!

Any diet that encourages a BALANCE of fruits, vegetables and 64 oz of water a day is basically NOT a diet but a way of eating for Life.

It's not knowledge that most of us lack when it come to "Healthy Choices' but
it is wisdom. Seek the LORD to Satisfy us.

Physical: No excuses! Here is an exercise you can do at home or at work :)

Squats: Technique Tip

First, sit all the way down in the chair and stand back up. Next, don't sit all the way down; barely touch the chair's seat before standing back up. Lastly, graduate to doing squats without a chair.

Here's to a GREAT DAY!
Don't forget to:
Drink water kissed by a lemon
