DAY 81 Just Do It & An Award

Hi Journal,

I woke up sick today...sore throat, earache. After making 2 meals for MyGuy to take to work, I just couldn't get warm, so I gave in and crawled back into bed.  Bless the person who invented electric blankets!!!!

I woke up later feeling warmer and a little better, and as I lay there, I thought about all the chirpy motivational stuff I write. Oh goodie...I get to put it into practice. I get to look for the "Blessin' or the Lesson". Well, after I got over grumping about it, and remembered all my bloggin' friends who are struggling through illnesses and still Doing It, I decided that today would be no different than any other day, foodwise. I won't be exercising, or pushing my new schedule, but otherwise, it is just another day along the Journey. 

THEN, when I got to the computer I found a message from Black Kitteh and Orange Kitteh, at A Tail of Two Kittehs On WW. They gave me an Award! How did those kittehs know I was sick today?! Purrfect timing...see my pretty award? It made me purr:

I am not sure of the Rules to this one, but since it is an Inspirational Award, I IMMEDIATELY know who I would like to pass it on to, and why:

I love reading her blog! She has reached her weight loss goal, and is  LIVING her life. She is busy, but still takes the time to share with those of us still ON the weight loss journey, and is sooo inspiring. I frequently save her articles to re-read and think about. Yesterday's was called "Make Your Life Worthwhile" (here). All I can say is wow! It made me cry, it made me think, it inspired me, it excited me, it CHANGED me. So for all those reasons, I would be honored if Mary would accept the Inspirational Blog Award.

From Dr Phil's book:  "Just do it...again and again and again."

My verse for today: "...the testing of your faith develops perseverance."

My quote for today: "Choose well.", not Homer Simpson! ;-)

Enjoy the Journey,
