I totally agree with the first cup being liquid gold...it's my reason for getting out of bed!

Just had to come in here and see how you are doing T, and offer more hugs for you and your mom...

Oh, and by the way??? I received my first Oxygen yesterday...OMG...I've never seen such beautiful and inspiring women and what a whole lotta inspiration and information! Thank you so much for recommending it! Of course, now I'm totally overwhelmed--hit my goal weight and now have to focus on not being 'skinny fat'. That is a challenge.

Breathe, Twyla, Breathe!

I feel this exact way. The first few sips of my perfect, lovely coffee. I now drink out of a HUGE mug just because a second pouring of coffee isn't nearly as good at that first one.

I look forward to it every morning!

Hey Twyla! I loved reading about your momma's garden and her wanting good food like yours. That made me smile.

I spoke with T earlier today and she is doing as well as expected. However between all of her obligations time is limited, so she might be missing from the forum until her schedule allows her return.

To all of you who have been so kind in your support to me, your hugs, thoughts, prayers.... wow.... thank you so very much.

My mom needs me more than ever now, and trying to juggle life with her needs is a tall order. The last couple of weeks have been very stressful and hectic, to say the least.

As a result, I have not had the mental energy to visit the boards, much less post. My posting will be very sporadic for a while.

One thing is for certain. Keeping myself strong and focused with clean eating and staying active, training -- this has been my SANITY. It has kept me strong and focused and uplifted and restored. This is one time in my life when I can't afford to NOT take good care of myself.

I've stayed on plan, tracked, and have kept up with my workouts and training. I plan to continue.

I'll post as often as I can.

Thank you so very much, all of you, for your expressions of love and support to me. It is so very meaningful.

These two truths are so interconnected...

I'm sending white light & positive energy directed toward YOU & Kathleen ~
for the strength, wisdom, and courage needed for the tough roads that lie ahead...

Remember that an enlightened choice is always the right choice.

I feel the same way these days...
as my father is in the hospital (for many weeks)
I'm leaving for TX on 3/29; I'd already be there; but 3/27 must be in CA.

T, if you need me; you know how to find me

Talk about walking the walk! Again - you are awesome.

I really like how your focus is helping you deal effectively with your troubles.

I am thinking about you and your sweet momma.

Daisy, Dani, Rich and Pauline -- thanks so much.

I miss the boards. I miss reading and learning and sharing. That time will return full throttle at some point.

For now, I have to take care of and make time for what's most important, make time for THOSE THINGS FIRST, and just visit now and then when I can.

Staying completely on plan, doing mostly a high day once a week with a low-med day on Wednesdays. May change Wednesdays back to a full-blown medium soon.

Advancing in my weight on some UB stuff. Happy about that! Staying committed to Callanetics twice a week as well.

Trying to be patient while my outer knee fully heals before I tackle my running head on.

Gotta run...wish I could stay and read and visit.

Blessings to all.
