Welcome, to the Weekend Edition of Mintdom!

I think you can see that I am struggling with getting my 6,000 steps in.  I only hit my goal three out of seven days.  Looking back at the weeks before though in September, I actually did better this week then others except for the first week when I went over every day except two and I had two 10,000-step days!  Am I losing momentum?  Maybe a little bit.  The beauty of keeping track though, is that I can see what is going on.  I have no illusions.  Today is day 90 of keeping track on the calendar.  I certainly have not lost momentum on my tracking.  Wow – I just did 90 days of doing something consistently!  <Patting myself on the back> I think I need a reward for that.  Hmmmm I suddenly see a flaw in my program.  I have not come up with a reward system for myself.  I am going to have to think about that for a little while.  Do any of you have any ideas?  Rewards need to be healthy, fun (anyone who knows me, knows that I am all about the fun!), and inexpensive (or FREE).  What kinds of things do you do to reward yourself?  Please feel free to share with me here, or on Mintdom.  It is easy to comment on Mintdom.  Just click on, go to the bottom of the subject that you want to comment on, type in your comment and click Reply.  It is easy!  I cannot tell you how therapeutic it is to post and think about the many people you will help.

Since I started on, it has helped me go deeper into my program.  There are many forms of support.  There are articles, videos, and the wonderful Spark People that share the ups and downs of their journeys.  Many of you know that I am not a Yoga person, and that not long ago I tried it again.  I found out that my mind did not match what my body could do.  Today, I found a Yoga video on that I can actually sort of do.  Here it is for anyone that wants to try it. It is from the Livestrong website that is another great site.  I hope that you at least take a peak at the sites that I give you here.  I understand that it takes time, but don’t you think that you are worth the time it might take? I believe we ALL are worth taking time out to do something good for ourselves.

Speaking of doing something good – as I am writing this, I am listening to a beautiful CD by Moonlit in the Sun.  It is their latest CD called Happy Interludes, and it is just that – a very happy interlude.  I wish I had a picture of the cover – even that is happy!  If you go to you can buy a copy.  Moonlit in the Sun is a local group, and you can often hear them at First Friday in Leesburg.  They are available for weddings and receptions, and we just had them play at a broker open for a special property that we are selling.  Anyway, my something good is listening to their beautiful music as I write.

Now I am off to continue to work on my speech for Toastmasters tomorrow.  The title is ‘See What you Want, Get What You See’ – I will let you know how it goes!

AffirMINTion:  I take time for myself and I reward my accomplishMINTs!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to

Life is good!
