Welcome back to another edition of Carol’s Corner. We had another nice day in Central New York , but night’s still should be a lot warmer than they have been. We are headed out of town for the next five days and the weather is supposed to quite a bit warmer than it has been.

Today’s picture was taken by one of the trees in front of our house. This is a dress that I got in the thrift store last year. It’s simple but chic and I love the red. Calling this one, “Blooming Hibiscus.”


Had a set of jewelry that worked well with this. Since I make jewelry I have something most of the time that works. Bought a little bit of costume jewelry today though. I have needed to purchase some longer necklaces that work with high necklines. Found some cool stuff today. You might see some soon.

My FitBit combo was perfect with this.

Read the statement in the above graphic. Meditate on what it says. Committ it to memory. Better yet print this out and put it where you will see it every morning. One of the biggest obstacles in your weight loss journey is you. If you don’t believe in yourself and what you are capable of then you are doomed to fail. You have to get up every day and tell yourself, ” I’m good enough, strong enough, and smart enough to slay this dragon that is weighing me down and keeping me from being able to enjoy life to the fullest.”

When you decide to take the first step in slaying the dragon of being overweight and unfit, all self doubt has to cease. There is no room in your journey for self doubt. You need to be positive and focused like a laser beam on all the things that will ultimately lead you to the place you want to be in your life. You alone will determine just where that is and just how successful you will be.

I totally love this. It’s that third part of the equation that makes all the difference. It’s like the opening header in my Facebook Group that says, ” The body will achieve what the mind believes.” I tell people all the time that this journey starts in your head. But I feel the real miracle begins when you not only believe it in your mind, but believe it in your heart. It is the melding of the two that makes you unstoppable.

Start your day with a positive affirmation and see how your day progresses as you think on it as you go throughout your day. A positive attitude will yield positive results almost every time.

I’d like to close with this. Enunciate your dream, work hard to achieve it, and and most of all BELIEVE IT. Do these things daily and before you know it, you will BEGIN to LIVE it. Till next time, God Bless.
