Put your heart into it!

Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.
Norman Vincent Peale

Ahh, that above quote doesn't need much explanation. You know, we all know that when you throw your heart and soul into something, that it is amazing what can happen. We've all done it with our eating plan, which ever one they may be. When we are very motivated and throwing our hearts into something, it's amazing the weight we lose and what we can accomplish, but when we are half-assing something, it's amazing how little motivation we can seem to have, and how much that can reflect on our end result. So what are you guys waiting for, go and throw your heart into it.

Thanks for all the emails, I won't be posting privately very often, but on occasion I need to vent about people, or certain situations involved in my life, and I don't feel appropriate putting their names online without having them protected. So it's nothing against anyone personally, etc.

Sorry for the lack of a couple posts the last couple days, I've been slammed at work, and not feeling well due to stress (the aforementioned situation I would like to talk about in private!), and the blog seems to take the backseat when my life gets like that. But what am I going to do about it? I have some plans. First of all I'm going to the gym tonight, even though that is the last place in the world I feel like going. I know it will help work some of the stress out, and I will feel better afterwards so I'm going! Plus I made myself an appointment for a massage on Saturday morning. That should help relax me out a bit too. My back hurts when I'm stressed, I seem to get like a huge knot right between my shoulders that works up into my neck....ouch!

I've been doing good eating. I've been OP Sunday, Monday and today. I did use a new flex points yesterday, but I was hungry and that is what they were there for. Still getting in my 8GHG's and keeping track of my macros, I should have the macro tracking down by the end of the month and be able to just switch over to using the online WW's points tracker again. I want to try to track both in spark people and through WW's at least every other month, that way I can keep things in check.

Other than that, I've been busy working on a business idea. I'm a very entrepreneurial person, and I'm always looking for some way to start my own business, and I think I *might* have found it. It involves baking....who would've guess right? I'll share it with you once I get the plan a little more developed, but I'm very excited about it. In the mean time, I would like to take a little survey, if you guys could answer a few questions for me!

1. What is your favorite type of cookie? Cake? Cupcake?
2. When your asked to bring dessert to a gathering, what do you normally take?

Alright, well guys, I'm outta here, back to working, but I hope everyone is healthy, happy and....in charge!

Fav cookie? peanut butter - but they have to be soft! (crackle top peanut butter cookies)
Cake? Angelfood with strawberries and whipped cream
Cupcake? Not really a big fan. They're all the same to me.

What do I bring for dessert? Something fancier, maybe a pie or big layered cake.

hopefull it helps! It made me start thinking about cookies! boo!

CaRoLyN said...

I'm gonna go with Randi and say Peanut Butter cookies. LOVE them...a little too much maybe.

Cake? Cheesecake handsdown. I really like the light anf fluffy kind that's not too rich.

I don't think I've ever had to bring a dessert anywhere but I would probably bring a pie or a cake.

And now I want ALL of these things right now! haha

fav cookie - chocolate chip tied with ginger snaps. Fav cake? plain DARK chocolate - fav cupcake? the closest thing to a cupcake that I like are butter tarts!! haha. If I'm asked to bring a dessert, I suggest that I bring a salad!! GOSH - do I ever have a sweet tooth now!!

Cookie - Ginger Snaps tied with Oatmeal Craisin (or cranberry) tied with Snickerdoodles. (Oh decisions!)
Cake - White cake with chocolate frosting
Cupcake - All of them

For bringing a dessert it is cupcakes for me .... you can mix up flavors and do not really need utensils.

Have a good day!

Favorite cookie? Really good, freshly made chocolate chip. Favorite cake? Dark chocolate cake with white cream cheese icing. Now my fruit and fat free cool whip isn't looking all that satisfying of a dessert!

cake - granny's cheesecake

dessert to bring - angel food cake with a sour cream/whip cream mixture and cherry's on top. Sounds a bit wierd...but way yummy. kinda like a no bake cheesecake.

Lyn said...

Sometimes I feel the need to post privately too. Think we are all like that.

Fav cookie? cookies and cream icecream... does that count? Oreo cookies in creamy icecream!!

Kathy said...

I've been checking out all the cupcake blogs recently cause I'm making them for the wedding and I'm amazed at how popular uniquely flavored and decorated cupcakes and muffins are. Picture Boston Cream Pie cupcakes, Lemon meringue Pie cupcakes, Green Tea...I could give you some links if you're interested.

Steph said...

Hmmm, favorite cookie - oatmeal raisin, cupcake would probably be a brownie type and cake is strawberry icebox cake with coolwhip frosting....mmmmmmm!

Dessert to a potluck is usually a fresh peach cobbler - we're southern, not to mention it is the easiest recipe on the planet!! Although for special occassions I get nominated as the cheesecake maker - I don't necessarily enjoy it but my family loves them.
