Day 4 – Commitment

By Karen | July 4, 2019 |

Well, I did it. I got up this morning, went to the gym and worked out for a little over an hour. As I expected, once I was done I was very happy with myself. I of course wondered why I don’t just do that every morning. I was tired when the alarm went off…

Day Three – No More Excuses

By Karen | July 3, 2019 |

Okay so again this morning, I turned the alarm off and went back to sleep. Even worse, I forgot to take the medicine I usually take at 5AM and I didn’t remember that until after 9. I actually woke again about 6:45 and probably could have gone to the gym then but I have it…

Day 2 – Hydration and Self Reflection

By Karen | July 2, 2019 |

So this morning didn’t work out either. I still had a tough time getting to sleep but I did get more sleep than the night before. I think I might have to change a few things around. In my effort to stay hydrated and drink half my body weight in ounces of water (I may…

What Are Your Limiting Beliefs?

By Karen | April 29, 2019 |

I have seen this video many times and it never fails to choke me up. I love this man’s story of strength, perseverance and ultimate victory. I think it speaks to the resilience of the human spirit when a person has someone else’s belief in them and also believes in themselves enough to use the energy from that belief…

It’s a Dog Day

By Karen | April 27, 2019 |

Some of my favorite “people” have had four legs. We were away for five days and haven’t yet picked up our dog Monet from the kennel today, so I was thinking how much I miss her. Even though she’s ten or eleven years old, she still brings a childlike joy to our home.  We recently…
