Body & Spirit

Got this from the fabulous Rhonna Farrerr's blog & wanted to share it with all of you. She is doing a 6 wk. shape up over there so check it out if you're interested. I feel like I am right there with her in this {besides eating my Red Velvet Cupcake yesterday} I have tried to eat healthier, add more fruits & veggies each day, really be conscious of what I eat & exercise more.

{Happy to report that I have been Diet Coke FREE for 3 1/2 weeks now- wa-hoo!}
I have totally felt a difference & I'm enjoying the little changes I have made to my daily routine & diet.
for example-

.NO caffeine,
.trying to not have cheese on my sandwiches 
{oh, how I love Swiss}
.smaller portion size,
.eating more fish,
.limiting the amount of SWeeTs I eat,
{this is a toughie for me!} 
.drinking LOTS of H2O
& absolutely nothing to eat after 8 p.m.
{except when it's Gourmet Club night- oops!}

I feel like this is manageable & easier than starting or trying to keep up with the dreaded D word {DIET}
So I'll keep trying to do little things each day to take care of my body & spirit. One thing that helps is going to Zumba & Yoga at the gym each week.

I am also reading a book right now called Divine Signatures by  Gerald Lund {I read maybe 2-3 books a year, bad I know} but I am really enjoying it & the discussion of how our Heavenly Father knows what is going on in our lives & wants to help us whenever he can. Sometimes people call little things {Miracles}that happen in our lives coincidences but the author discusses the fact that they seem to come in our lives at just the perfect moment & precisely timed that they seem like-
a blessing autographed from heaven.
{love that!}
-A little gift specifically sent to us personally-
{the author does a much better job of explaining it than I am}
I have totally felt his influence in my life recently & the tender mercies he has given me.  I know that miracles do happen all around us each & every day.
Expect {& look for} miracles today!
{I'm sure they are out there we just have to realize & appreciate them}

In an institute class Brother Stephens told us that when we are ready to say "oh that was lucky" we should stop and say thank you instead for the blessings that Our Heavenly Father is so eager and willing to send us. I definitely want to do better at recognizing "the miracles" everyday!!
