I just got home from speaking in Minneapolis. It went quite well. I got the chance to
speak to a lot of folks who just needed some hope and I had plenty to supply.

Last month when I attended my very first Expo in New York, I wasn't aware of how many freebies and valuable information are distributed. My handbag couldn't hold everything.
This time I got smart. I brought along an empty rolling duffel bag and went from booth to booth filling it up. It felt like adult trick or treating.

After speaking at two seminars, I went to the Covidien booth to meet and greet the people
who wanted to talk. Who knew that the booth I was working at had my favorite gift of the
day. It was a journal, but not just any ordinary journal. This one was designed to record
food intake for the day.

Sometimes we need to go back and repeat a behavior that has worked for us in the past to help get us back on track. Inside the cover of the journal it says, "Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out". Not only did the journal have space to jot down
my thoughts and food, it also had eight little drawings of water glasses to record water intake, three ladies jumping rope to represent exercise, a box to check off multi vitamins
and calcium and finally the one that made me laugh was a drawing of women resting on an
armchair to represent relaxation. Why not eight little chairs, I chuckled. Thank you
Covidien for such an ingenious journal.

I have more to tell you about the event in Minneapolis so stay tuned as this is enough writing
for today. Have a great week.

With love, Stacey
