I Am an Overnight Success!

Good morning Mintdom,


I have had some technical difficulties this morning with my computer so this is going out a little late.  I hope that you all slept well last night and woke up (or will wake up in some cases) refreshed and ready to tackle the day! Some of you are telling me that you think I am too hard on myself.  That may be true, and if it is, it is because I love myself.  Yes, I love myself and maybe there are times when I need to give myself a little tough love! LOL!  Seriously, I REALLY want to become a healthy person, and although my general health is good, I am not where *I* want to be; therefore, I push myself.

Good morning Mintdom,


Yesterday, my computer would not cooperate and I did not get to finish; I am back today though – phew!  Therefore, as I was saying, I do push myself at times, and that is a good thing.  When I started reporting my steps back in July, I was doing 2,000 steps a day.  I was happy when I made it to 4,000!  Today, I am disappointed over 5,000 and I am beginning to be consistent with 7,000.  I can see that my lifestyle is changing. I am beginning to develop a healthy lifestyle. By George, I think it is going to stick!  Woo hoo!

This is a GREAT revelation to me! I CAN do it.  I AM doing it! I just thought about this – I am an overnight success!  I can see that there are certain things that really help me: 


  • Tracking, Tracking, Tracking
  • Journaling
  • Putting one foot in front of the other every day
  • Accountability


Big thanks to each of you for holding me accountable by your acknowledgements and your encouragements.  I love you all!

Make it a GREAT day, if YOU choose to.


Life is good!

  1. Deborah! This has been one of my most favorite Mintdom quotes from you: “Our strength often increases in proportion to the obstacles imposed upon it.” I think that you are a strength for me and for so many! Thank you for keeping on keeping on! You inspire me when I need to be inspired! You motivate me when I need to be motivated! and you give bookoo love just when I need it too! At this time of year when we celebrate thankfulness – I am thankful for the Mint! xoxoxox
