Its almost that time... New Year's Resolutions !

                                                            2013 New Year Resolution 

                                                            It is almost that time again .....
                                     My 2013 New Year Resolution is the same as last years...

                                                            I still need to Lose Weight!
This year I am joining a group to do the PUSH-30 day Challenge
 -by Chalene Johnson 
I was invited to join the group by 2 fitness bloggers that I follow, 
a mother and daughter team
  -Kim & Kalee Sorey 
click link below for their blog.
If you would like to join in on the challenge click either links below

                                               I'm looking forward to the challenge !


You have committed to changing your life by participating in the 30 Day Challenge to Master Organization and Achieve Your Goals.


Beginning on the first of the month, you'll receive an email every day for thirty days reminding you to log into and there you'll have access to a daily video, the worksheets as well tap into a community of support.


All of the steps are important and I can't wait to share them with you! By the end of the Challenge, you will have set up goals, determined your values and kept a carefully crafted and diligently mastered to-do list long enough for it to be a habit that you are never going to want to break. And guess what? Thirty days is also long enough to see real results! I can't wait to hear about your success!


I have to warn you. While, this is not going to be time consuming (less than ten minutes a day for most days) it's going to involve a little work on your part. I am going to ask you to consider your goals and question everything!


And one more warning: Get ready to see some major changes! You are not going to believe how easy it is to live a successful life when you apply these techniques! In the span of the thirty days you will create and make measurable progress on goals that are meaningful and authentic. You will feel the peace of mind and excitement that comes from completing your daily tasks and living a successful life!


So, take a deep breath.


You'll be hearing from me soon.


I can't wait to begin this journey together!

Live,Laugh, Love!


When I bite into a York Peppermint Pattie I get the sensation of ....
 A cold, crisp glacial air against my face as an Eskimo bobsledding in ...ha ha ha
(I look more like a Polar bear )
What can laughter do?:
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increase vascular blood flow and oxygenation of the blood
  • Give a workout to the diaphragm and abdominal, respiratory, facial, leg, and back muscles
  • Reduce certain stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline
  • Increase the response of tumor- and disease-killing cells such as Gamma-interferon and T-cells
  • Defend against respiratory infections–even reducing the frequency of colds–by immunoglobulon in saliva.
  • Increase memory and learning; in a study at Johns Hopkins University Medical School, humor during instruction led to increased test scores
  • Improve alertness, creativity, and memory
