Body Balance

"Beauty is only skin deep. I think what's really important
is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit."  -Jennifer Lopez

I found that quote and was rather surprised that it came from a celebrity. Then again, it's easy to say beauty is only skin deep when your skin looks like Jennifer Lopez.  I do like what she says and that is one of the things I'm working on.  Like I said in my post before, I'm still struggling with taking it slow, but here goes.  My two goals for this week are these-

First, I will listen to my body. For example, when the walnut brownies my kids made call my name (oh, yes, they know my name) I will ignore them. Because I know that eating a palm-sized brownie, while heavenly at first, will result in some serious stomach churning later. And a sugar headache. Do you get a sugar headache? I get lots of headaches, but the sugar-induced kind are especially fierce.

Second, I'm going to start reading this-

-again. I read it a few years ago and lost 15 pounds. Then I fell back into old habits. Me and my bad habits. Such a love/hate relationship- they love me, I hate them.   (I am not sponsored by this book, I just believe very strongly in it.)  It was given to me by my neighbor who is a nutritionist.  It truly is revolutionary.

Also, I'm trying to make note of things I do like about my body.  (Often a hard thing to do.)  Today, I love my nails.  They are thick and strong and grow really well.

What do you like about yourself today?


  1. I have been sitting here trying to think of an answer... I honestly can't come up with much to like about my body right now. I would have to say my hair :)
