Slowly but Surely

I joined SP in May of 2011 to get out of a rut of poor food choices and too little exercise (resulting in a slow but steady weight gain of about 10-15 pounds over several years). I am Catholic, and realized that I was not treating my body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. I don't want to become obsessive about the numbers on my scale or clothing tags, but I do want to be a good steward of this body God has given me.

I don't want to become obsessive about the numbers on my scale or clothing tags, but I do want to be a good steward of this body God has given me.

I lost about 15 pounds between May and December of 2011, and then lost my motivation, and gained around 5 of it back. By October 2013 I was within a few pounds of my goal weight, and then got pregnant! So for now I'm trying to have a healthy pregnancy, and worry about my goal weight after that. My lifetime goal is to stay around my final weight, but more importantly, to make sure I get good nutrition and an adequate amount of exercise each day. I still struggle a great deal with choosing healthy foods over junk food, and that's definitely something I need to overcome. Though since I got pregnant, I haven't been craving sweets like I used to. I hope this stays with me!

Here's to the start of a marvelous new week....be mindful of your thoughts because they will determine not only this Monday, but your entire week.

(coffee can sure help start off a Monday too, so I brought you a cup emoticon )

It's Sunday Morning. My opportunity to thank the Lord for giving me a day of rest and sharing some time with Him. What a blessing it is to be reminded of how much he loves us. Take time to sincerely feel and appreciate the steadfast love our Lord has for us.

I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do.--Edward Everett Hale

Make today a Thankful Thursday by giving an act of kindness whenever you can.

Is today the day!! emoticon
