Are the Stars all Aligned?

What has happened....seems thing are in place for my health and fitness plan. Oh my goodness, it's been a long time....a long time of frustration!!

First my computer started giving me troubles. (As you know, I need it....well OK I don't need it, but it is really helpful for this journey - For tracking food, my Bodybugg stats and for Blogging). My sweet hubby got it fixed last week. He also got my Bodybugg system working. (What would I do without him!!) I've been working on my new food menu each week and I'm into it now and really like it. My body feels good and ready to work. I had an AWESOME time in the pool last night. My Stability Ball instructor taught the water aerobics class. She totally rocks!! I wish she was the instructor all the time. I got a great workout. Another thing I did, was I got to bed on time last night, so I feel really refreshed today! I was able to run 20 minutes without stopping! It's been a while since I've done any running at all, so I'm happy with that! I got a lot of stress out of my life, so I feel hopeful again! And finally I got my blood pressure meds. I ran out and had to wait for them in the mail. Probably should not do that, but I'm on two so hopefully the other one kept me together....The sad thing about blood pressure meds, this one....if I don't have it....puts on about 2 pounds. Boy could I feel them!! Yikes!! If I am ever able to get off of this medication I will definitely have to plan to keep those pounds off.

Kind of amazing how all these little things can kind of throw me off of my plan. Kind of like a football coach without his clipboard or whistle! I need my stuff to be successful!!

I'm ready for a great day...a successful day...a focused day!!! How about you?

Stay focused!


  1. I know how hard it can be to be without your computer. Ours was out for about a month. We still had our old one, but it is ancient, slow and limited. We just got ours fixed & it is such a joy to be able to get back in the blogging loop. I can feel all of your positive energy in your post, You will have a great day with that attitude! Best wishes for a great week.

  2. I love it when the stars are aligned and things seems to "fall into place". I'm glad to hear that your body feels good and that you're feeling good!

  3. I can relate to needing all my tools to be successful (healthy groceries stocked up, my phone app for tracking). Those tools all help us, but all you need is you :))

  4. As in life in general "the little in life that do matter"! Planning is so crucial to our success. Good for you, getting your meals planned out!
