April 23rd Donkeys, Puppies & Bunnies...Oh My!

Hello Journal & Friends,

Today I'm wearing my Donkey earrings. My sister, Karen, made them for me a couple of years ago. When she gave them to me, I asked her if she was trying to tell me something... she just laughed.

The reason for wearing them today: I've been stubborn, and it's time to stop. 

I keep saying I should get back to tracking calories... then peter out in a day or two. I stubbornly keep coming up with excuses... so no more. For now, it's just something I NEED to do, for my own accountability and success. Stop talking about it... and DO it.

(Notice how I snuck in a photo of Joey, hee hee hee??)

From Dr Phil's book: "For you to succeed, you have to translate this knowledge, awareness, and insight into action."

My verse for today: "Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep."

My quote for today: "Do not wait; the time will never be 'just right'. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along."  --Napoleon Hill

Enjoy the Journey,


DAY 617

Have a wonderfully blessed Easter, Loretta!
It sounds like you are ready to take initiative after some setbacks. It's always good to know in our hearts that we can and will get right back on track.

I love the Joey pics!!! Those earrings are too cute. You CAN do this, Retta, and I know you will! I've only been able to stay on track for a few days at a time, too. Let's kick our butts into gear! I'm thinking about making daily posts just to share whether or not I'm on track, but I don't think I'd actually post daily. Why is it so hard to stay on track now? Let's do this!!!!

OK I've written 3 comments and I've hit the wrong button 3 times and erased them. I guess I'm not supposed to say what I was going to say.

Keep focused and have a great Easter!

I hope you had an amazing restful and rejuvenating Easter, Loretta.

Hope you had a great Easter.

Joey is a star and Karen is gifted. Those earrings are so cute.

I'm extremely stubborn, too. That's a good quality if we use it right. :)

Joey! Do you realize you have a contest-winning photo of Mr. Joey there? It's true!

Slip, slop, slide... yep, I understand about that. And I admire your spunk. Stubbornness works in both directions, right?
