A Bowl of ICE CREAM is a bowl of Guilt?

 Accountability is HUGE

So when we prepare to make our "New Year Resolutions" this year  who will hold our feet to the fire to make sure we STICK to IT!

Accountability is HUGE

This is where we have MUD on our face when we "say" we are going to do something and  then we have the attention of others who are watching us.

Accountability is HUGE

When we are ready to "make excuses" why we are not living up to "what we said we would do" then we are faced with feelings of Guilt.  Why?  Because we "think" we can fool others but we have NOT FOOLED ourselves.  

GUILT  becomes a giant  
Bowl of ICE CREAM 
devoured in front of the TV! 

Accountability is HUGE

ok... I've said it enough times now.

So, "where is the accountability"?

First we make a choice to be take care of ourselves by Exercise and Healthy Food Choices

Then  when we......
SAY IT ... we then
HEAR IT....  as we
WRITE IT....  as we 
as we .... commit to it

then we need to  PUBLISH IT

Now, we  are more committed to it because it's OUT THERE and  we become accountable

Why?  Because:

OTHERS have now
Heard it and are
waiting to See it

YOUR BEING WATCHED.... You are Now Accountable to something bigger than yourself

Yikes.....  here's a thought

What if you wore a T - SHIRT    24/7 that read:
I'm committed to: 
Eat Healthy 
Exercise Daily

If you were wearing that shirt:
Do you think for one nano second you would be comfortable ordering  a rich decadent dessert ?
Or eating a  double Cheese Burger and  a large order of Fries and a Soda while wearing that shirt ?

Do you think you would allow people to see you take the Elevator  instead of walking the Stairs while wearing that shirt ?

Enough talk.....

The Point is

Accountability is HUGE

So, when you're preparing your New Years Resolution....

Say "it" out loud in front of someone who care's about you.

Then  really HEAR YOURSELF SAY IT and
then WRITE DOWN in a place that everyone you know who care's about you can SEE IT

Read it every day, Say it out loud throughout the day

repeat over and over again in your mind

and make your  ACT of Accountability  a

new commitment to Health and Wellness

become a  new thread that you weave 

into the tapestry of your life. 

Change is an Action

Commit to Change and Act on your Committment
now that's "Integrity"

Doing what is right, isn't easy but it's "right"


Wake up and reach for a CUP OF  the Word of God 

Sometimes the Word of GOD is hard to Swallow.  
Especially when it hits to the Heart of our Soul.

James 4:17

  If anyone, then

knows the good they ought to do 

and doesn’t do it,

it is sin for them.

              Taking care of the Temple.....   is Taking care of YOU! 

Eating Healthy Life Giving Food  (No donuts are not nutritional  & life giving)

Exercising our muscles to thus strengthening our bodies (that includes our Heart)

Thinking  thoughts that are  good, right, holy,  just and the perfect Will of God

Speaking   Truth ...... from the Word of God to ourselves and others

Listening   Active Listening to hear the Voice of God and needs of others

Touching those around us with Gentleness, hugs and Mercy

Shining the Light within us for the GLORY of GOD!

Breathing in His Presence and Exhaling our Fears and Worries

Breathe.... and be happy!

Did you know you CAN NOT  TALK  while  Breathing in?  
It is a natural function that humans need to shut up to breath in.  Yet, we seldom take a breath between sentences.  And we wonder why we feel tense, irritable and anxious, with pain in our shoulders from being tight.  Digestion all messed up, difficulty relaxing until we  sit and sip a cup of coffee.  Our Body Screams for us to STOP and control our breathing.  We ignore this and develop various illnesses. 

Did you know that when you are Stressed, worried or feeling anxious you are breathing Shallow?  Which increases the feelings of stress, anxiety, worry and irritability.... and even anger.

What to do when your really stressed out, feeling anxious, feeling worried or out of control about life......


1.  Stand with Arms Raised above your head 
     Close your eye's and take in a deep breath through your nose 
      Palms towards each other  and directly over the head
      almost covering your ears with your arms
      this will lift your rib cage up and diaphragm up 

2.  Then OPEN the mouth  - dropping and RELAXING THE JAW and 
       Sing......  AHHHHHHHHH  with a single tone AS YOU EXHALE 
      through your mouth  
      while slowly dropping your arms to your side with palms face down
      NOW.... feel yourself  pulling your stomach into wards your spine

                    NOW....Feel your shoulders drop down  away from your ears 
                                                 as you relax your arms .... 

Draw up air into your lungs as you again raise your arms  with palms face up and hands directly over your head


Repeat this 3 to 7 times !  

Deep Breathing IN and OUT

Very Important aspect of this is:

Think   as you breathe in through your nose that....  you are BREATHING IN PURE Energy  "The Breath of GOD"

                                                     See yourself in a peaceful place 

Think   as you release your breath ... you are RELEASING the TOXIC energy of frustration, anxiety, worry, stress and or any "negative" feelings you may have.  BLOW THEM AWAY!!!!

You will become
 relaxed peaceful    

This type of breathing  increases the Oxygen in your  body
especially your Brain cells ( Thinking)  and Heart  cells (Emotions) are filled with life giving oxygen.
                        Every Cell in your Body needs Oxygen to properly function. 

        In the process of CPR - Breathing is checked before  the Heart beat!  
                               Without Oxygen the Heart can not function


Genesis 2:7

 Then the Lord God made man from the dust of the ground. And   He breathed into his nose the breath of life.      Man became a living being.

We are nothing but "DUST OF THE EARTH" 

Maybe, just maybe this is why we are to "raise our hands" and praise the Lord!

As we raise our hands and SPEAK words of Praise to our Savior AND the Word of GOD PROMISES that  it  WILL change the quality of our breathing!  


                                  Just a thought
