I made the decision to eat healthy before Christmas and I am already reaping the benefit. With 1lb down already, things can only get better. I have always read about getting all your daily nutrients in on simple foods but this is my first REAl experience. Eating just fruits,veggies, nuts, seeds, oatmeal, eggs, and fish. I am meeting all my nutrients and feeling so great!!!
I have no idea where this is leading me but one thing I am sure of is that I am not going back to the starting point again. I am trusting that God will help me to find my balance so I can live a sustaining life on just my bare eating necessities. I am so joyous and hopeful.
Yes, I can do this!!!!

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. (Psalm 130:5 NIV)
His words assure me that I can do ALL things by His strength, not mine.
Welcome, to December my month of FAST TRACK in all things.

This is a great time for temptation. In every aspect, from shopping and buying what you don't need, just because they come at a cheaper price, to overeating because of the festivity mood and cold weather. This year, I have promised myself not to fall into any of the traps. So, here is my plan for a healthy state by Christmas.
Abandon meat, I.e. Chicken, turkey, beef, etc. Eat majorly fruits and vegetables. Get my protein mainly from fish and eggs. Make oatmeal my companion for the month. Ok, I am not deceiving myself. I know it is going to be tough but guess what, no food can be tougher than me. I am determined to do this and will simply take it one day at a time.
I had a trial today and was successful. So starting tomorrow, December 1st, I will officially start my healthy by Christmas program. I can do this by His grace and power. I know I can.

I am an African and the peculiarities of my culture, foods, and environment aids obesity. In some cultures, a skinny lady is considered unfit for marriage. There are so many parts of my culture that sets us up for a life of obesity. To the glory of The Lord, I am out of that classification. My target is to get out of being "Overweight" in 2014. This morning, I set up a Spark group for my "People". I believe lives will be touched in 2014. I am so, so excited and pray for positive response from those who need it.
Dear Friends, pray along with me. I really want to support people to reach their goals, as I move towards mine. It is well!!!!

I am an addict. Yes, I am. I am addicted to my new, well, not so new now, way of life. Yes, totally addicted. My mind is always on formulating and discovering new ways of keeping fit. It feels so good that I can't believe this is me doing all these!! My addiction is aided by my gadgets, another addiction. My Spark Activity Tracker, My FB, my CarePass, Achievemints, and so many other Apps are total enablers. The greatest of them is however, my iPad.
You need to see me locked up in my classroom during my lunch break or prep period. My iPad is turned on and I am "Sweating in the Spirit". Yes!!!!! I love this "Me" and I have God to thank for it. I can't imagine, or should I say remember, what my life was in my "sedentary era". Totally inconceivable!
My addiction is propelling to a new level; I have started a support group for those on similar journey as I am. It is so wonderful to support others, while also helping myself too. I can go on and on, and on about this beautiful addiction. However, I am just going to sum it up with these words.
ALL PRAISE BE TO MY GOD!!!!!!!
