Our Bodies...

... are pretty freaking COMPLICATED!

So in the aspect of full disclosure the past week has been really rough with my body and some things that are happening and receiving some potentially life changing news yesterday for the doctors is going to lead to another two weeks if not more of dealing with same thoughts, feelings and panics.

But with all that happening let's just say that staying on track, healthy eating and exercise isn't working.  However, the ice cream flurry thing I had for diner last night was perfect. That's it.  That's all I had for dinner. I was perfectly okay with it.  I needed just one thing to make me feel like I was in control of the choices I was making and able to enjoy the things I could enjoy. Sometimes I feel like we need to have these moments.  Do they need to be regular occurrences? Nope.

Today I got back on track ... sort of.  It took me a bit to get out of the funk I was in.  I realized that regardless of what's happening I don't have control over any of it and I still need to just so my thing.  My thing is getting fit.  Now more then ever...

I read some of my book, worked on my notes, cooked and cleaned and then watched mindless TV.

NEW THINGS!

I finally got my header done and put up.  I went simple and I went kid like.  I honestly feel that as adults we forget how to live and how to learn like kids do.  We need to spend more time removing the stereotypes and the ridiculous beliefs we have for no good reason and just get back to LIVING.

I'm currently reading two books.

The first one is: 

The Compound Effect - Jumpstart your income, your life,  your success by Darren Hardy.


This has been a great book so far and just in night one I got halfway through! A lot of hmmms .. and ah has were said so far -- it's all really relatively simple -- so why are we not doing it?  
SideNote: I do need to thank my new friend Nikki for this -- she posted she was reading it and I was like SCORE! She's doing an amazing and kick a$$ job with her journey so far -- make sure to check her out. 

This is where the inspiration for my tagline came from ... Small Steps. Every Day. #boom #mindblown

“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” 
“The (Complete) Formula for Getting Lucky: Preparation (personal growth) + Attitude (belief/mindset) + Opportunity (a good thing coming your way) + Action (doing something about it) = Luck” 
“The real cost of a four-dollar-a-day coffee habit over 20 years is $51,833.79. That’s the power of the Compound Effect.”

The other book:

All I Really Need to Know I Learned In Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum


This is where the inspiration for my header overall design came from. 

Excerpts from this book: 

“You may never have proof of your importance but you are more important than you think. There are always those who couldn’t do without you. The rub is that you don’t always know who.” 
“It doesn’t matter what you say you believe - it only matters what you do.” 
“These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):
1. Share everything.2. Play fair.3. Don't hit people.4. Put thngs back where you found them.5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.6. Don't take things that aren't yours.7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.8. Wash your hands before you eat.9. Flush.10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.11. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.12. Take a nap every afternoon.13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first workd you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.” 
So you see... it's all fairly simple.  

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE.
