Occupy - My LIFE!

March 4, 2015

Last month I never got around to changing my page, but my focus was to occupy my diet: Owning my choices. I am still working on that. Struggling through for some reason, I almost picked a background of a person climbing a cliff. That is what this journey feels like some days. That is not my desire. My desire is to Occupy MY LIFE.

Last month I never got around to changing my page, but my focus was to occupy my diet: Owning my choices. I am still working on that. Struggling through for some reason, I almost picked a background of a person climbing a cliff. That is what this journey feels like some days. That is not my desire. My desire is to Occupy MY LIFE.

Somewhere in February, I started working toward making each step one that moves me forward in possessing the habits I desire for life. That is working well for me. Through March and beyond, I am working at making a habit of stepping through my day to seeing routines form with victorious habits that make for good days.

I may be struggling, but I will struggle step by step to habits that glorify God and bring victory to living. Thus, I find myself standing before Him with hope of glory, rather than straining to climb up a cliff.

OCCUPY: My 2015 Journey to Victory
January 6, 2015

My watchword to walk out in 2015 is OCCUPY (see blog for this date). To occupy means:

1. To fill up (time or space).
2. To dwell or reside in.
3. To hold or fill.
4. To seize possession of and maintain control over forcibly or by conquest.
5. To engage or employ the attention or concentration of.

For me it means to take ownership and fully possess a thing. Thus I begin today to fully "OCCUPY" my healthy lifestyle.

Happy New Year! December 29, 2014

As we finish up the last few days of 2014, we have 365 new days coming to us with which to do great things. As I begin anew today for a year of thoughts here, I am excited to make the best of each new day ahead by remembering each new breath bring opportunity to choose great things. My goals for 2015 are simple: firm up what I have.

*Firm up � good habits and improve upon them.
*Firm up � eating for life.
*Firm up � exercise regimen.
*Firm up � healthful thinking. Taking every thought captive and making it work for me instead of against me is the goal.
*Firm up � motives for life. Recognizing and realizing the motives for the things I do is a great aid to my progress.

Another goal I have to help my progress is to end each day by realizing the progress made and the good successes achieved. I have a tendency to beat myself up in a fall, which greatly hinders my progress. So I will give focus to realizing the successes of my journey and major on them, which greatly helps me to press forward in life.

I am very grateful for you who walk with me and encourage my journey. Together we can do this. Let�s finish strong in 2014 and press forward to own the day in every new day of 2015.

My Goals:
1. Don't just set goals, change habits!
2. Increase activity.
3. Improve diet.
4. Change from the heart by addressing thought processes and attitudes that hinder and harm my journey and motives for what I am doing.

My Program:
I struggles through the holidays, but I am ready to press forward to firming up the habits that make life and health abundant.

1. Keep my nutrition tracker, working on making sure the nutrition pie is balanced.
2 Move this bod, increasing my steps, getting in cardio and strength training throughout the week.
3. Weigh less on January 1, 2016 than on January 1, 2015.
4. I continue to try to find better coping skills for trigger tired and the rebellion when out of control situations drive me to eat haphazardly.


Personal Information:
Hi, I am Darlene, a 60 year old home maker, married to my best friend, and I struggle to take care of myself properly, like many I know. We have 3 children and their mates, 12 grandchildren, 2 great grands, and 2 dogs who think they are our children. I love the study of God's word, writing, reading, and crochet.

Other Information:
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow may never be
Now is all the time
God has gifted me
Will I use it well
Or waste it on the way
Time will surely tell
The choice I make today

I am trying to keep my strength up by eating the right things. After DH gets home from work and gets supper ready and we eat, he has been helping me do my exercises to get this foot moving.
You are such an inspiration to me, and I cherish you as a friend.

Have an awesome, blessed day.
