Linda's starting over

Back again and starting over. I'm now at 307 and very uncomfortable with myself. But, the important thing is I'm trying again.

My Goals:
My goal is to become healthier. I'm not really looking at what the scale says. It's more about how I feel, physically and mentally.

My Program:
Eat some fruit with breakfast.
Eat some fruit or vegetables at lunch. Make lunch at home.
Eat a more well rounded dinner.

Cardio on the treadmill.
Strength training- haven't decided yet.
Core training- still researching. Might try pilates.

Other Information:
The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }

'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

Hello Linda,
Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog about the poltergeist. It's been an interesting few days getting acquainted with this character. But more items are returning and life is settling down. I don't journal - I'm not that organized - but I have written of my ghosts and told my stories often enough that my stories are well ingrained in my head and will be available when I (hopefully) write my memoirs for my kids. Meanwhile, there is a Paranormal SparkTeam that I am on and I have posted some of my stories on their threads. If you are interested you could check them out. If you can't find them, let me know and I'll try to locate them better for you.

I read through some of your blogs to get a little acquainted with you. Best wishes as you work to get back onto a healthier track. Just a thought: picture what your life might be like if you lost that 100 pounds and see how it makes you feel. Happy? Sad? Terrified? Then track back from there. That might show you what is holding you back. Then create new visions for what losing that 100 pounds would produce and focus on that as your goal. I'm no psychologist, but it's an idea to try - or discard. In any case, good luck!
