Happy Memorial Day!

Today's such a special day, remembering our ancestors and those that fought for our freedom. I lost an uncle, Richard, in WWII, he died in 1945 in the Battle of the Bulge. He was my father's oldest brother. Uncle Richard was reported missing for 8 long years before they found his remains. My dear grandmother would cry each time she spoke of her lost son. She would often tell me of how she would see his smiling face each time the kitchen door opened. It would break my heart to hear her tell of her sad experiences as tears would roll down her beautiful face. What a blessing they're together again. I miss my grandparents very much, they have all passed away. But every now and again I can feel them with me in spirit. I know I'll be with them again someday, and for that I am deeply grateful.

My family's Memorial Day tradition is to gather together to go to the cemetery to pay tribute to our loved ones, and then afterwards we have a BBQ at my parent's home. However, it's raining again!!! Ugh! It's so frustrating and it's cold too!!!! What a bummer! Yesterday was beautiful, we should have gotten together after church instead.... oh well... I'm sure we'll make the best of it.

My parents came over yesterday, I love them so very much. Our kids love it when they come to visit, they live close to us and so we're able to see them often. We are so blessed to have such a happy, loving family. I love family more than life! I couldn't imagine my life any other way.

Well, I hope you have a great Memorial Day! I'll chat with you later.

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
