Nothing so far

Went 21 days of vegan until I left for Texas. Ate lots of non-vegan food but only for one day. Exercised right up until I left for Texas. Lost no weight. What was my expectation? But I feel like my body may be changing shape. 

My therapist said that I had too many restrictions, too many 'boxes.' I know it's because I have had too many experiences with my various addictions. That seems to be my greatest fear - every time I think I have overcome one addiction, another one appears. Shopping, Sex, Alcohol, Gambling. Geez. What's next? 

Met a man and fell in love for 24 hours. That was fun.

Discovered a guy who wrote a book called 'The Cause Within You.' I might start teaching adults how to read. I might even consider teaching those same folks how to dance.

I'm going to L.A. in November. It seems imperative to me now. I have two places to visit. Agape and the Dream Center. Maybe my motivation is just around the corner...

Don't give up!

November 1st I begin my next round of spiritual exercises. Debbie Ford has a 21 day Consciousness Detox. That's what I'm doing next. Will continue to pursue vegetarian and vegan food options. Another 21 days. Watch what happens...

I am Divine Order Now Expressing.

And on the seventh day...

On October 1, 2011, I began a 90-day commitment to meditation, exercise, and veganism. Doing the meditation has not been a challenge because I am currently doing one of Deepak Chopra's guided meditations. Exercising has not been a challenge because it's part of being a coach for Team Beachbody so I would be doing it anyway. And the Veganism has not been a challenge because I was a vegetarian before so this choice not to eat meat is not unfamiliar to me. Since it has only been a week, I don't have much to report. It was not hard replacing meals. The meditation helps me focus for the day. And the exercise is doing - well, just what exercise does!

I attended a fabulous event last weekend. It was the VMSN Gala. My doctor has initiated a project that she is passionate about and she is thriving! They are the Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada. I am so proud of her. And I had a wonderful time at the event. Got all dressed up in my 'Shakespeare' best and even had my picture taken several times, including a copy to bring home! I even bought a claddagh ring from the Silent Auction.

I had to move my location at work this week because they broke down the cubicles we were sitting in. It was Billy, Me, Mary and Steve Casey. I now sit in Judy Ellzey's old seat. Mary is sitting where one of the RDS computers used to be. I'm the only one sitting two rows away. I like it.

I am ready for the discipline required to live a Spiritual life. I am ready for the discipline required for a commitment to leaving less of a carbon footprint on this planet. I am ready to be all that I can be!

Your life is God's gift to you; what you do with it is your gift to God.
