Today was another good day. My husband Is doing better and the pneumonia is clearing up. We were able to do some Christmas shopping which made me feel like it is ok for Christmas to come. I was also able to get in 2 ten min workouts and a bootcamp video. I also stayed in my food ranges. it feels so good to be motivated again.

God shines the brightest when things are the darkest. Heard a great message on unbelief today. It really made me think. We all can go through a time of unbelief. We must prepare for it and be ready. We also must be patient to those who are going through it. But the good news is we are forgiven and restored. Then had a great walk this afternoon. I wish winter would stay like this. Maybe it is time to move a little south.

    It's nice to remember I've forgiven when I falter in my faith! Thanks for the reminder!

I am back

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I am out of my slump. I have done well most of this week. I am back to exercising and it feels so good. I think some of it was the weather has been nice enough to walk outside. There is something about being outside. I was thinking about walking outside even in cold weather but the thing is the snow and ice. so I am not sure what I'll do when that comes. I can do stuff inside but it is not as fun. There is something about the fresh air. I am just glad i am back. I look back and wonder why I was so down.

    That's great! I love outdoor walking too - it's probably my favorite form of exercise. I can sometimes handle walking in the cold, but I do understand what you mean about the snow and ice - it often creates dangerous conditions and it's so easy to slip and fall. So happy you've had a good week!

    emoticon You are doing great! Don't you fret! You need to give yourself a break now and then. Remember, it's not all about weight loss and exercise. You are still making conscious decisions that will benefit your health and well being. About the snow and cold. Did you know that you burn more calories by walking in the snow? So, you can allow yourself as little as 15 minutes out side to get great results!

    Glad you had a GREAT week!

Check out those SP video's...even Youtube seems to have some great selections for working out inside. I was kind of surprised on that one since I've been a video exerciser for years, I've never had the need for it...but I love options.

Keep up the great work.

    Great! Congratulations on a good week! I have found it helpful to join the 10 minute a day exericse challenge. By committing to ten minutes a day, Õ've been able to develop a consistent pattern of exercise. Check out the Spark People exercise videos for those cold winter indoor days.

I DID IT!!!!

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Today i made myself work out. It was not easy and I wasn't sure I would be able to get it in. I had to take my husband to the Dr. at 9 this morning and we didn't get out of there till after 1. He has pneumonia and is quite sick. But while he was sleeping this afternoon I was able to work out. It feels good. I know I have to keep my body healthy since there is so much sickness on our house right now(my son is sick as well). so this was my whoo hoo moment.

trusting Him

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

If i am truly trusting God I should not be worried or stressed over my life and weight. He is in control. I also realized that I have not been very honest with myself and I have been making it look like I am doing better than I am. So Tracking today is going to be right and accurate. This process is like peeling an onion.... Layer by layer till you get to the core of thing. The real issues you are over weight or not losing. I think I have been resisting that next layer but now I am ready. GOd sees me through each step of the way.

    I am learning that God is the one whispering encouragement to us. God places within us the desire to work at our health and to take care of ourselves. My problem is that I have been ignoring that "still small voice." God may be the one planting the desire within us to exercise and be fit. So when we exercise and eat wisely we are saying yes and thank you to God who gave us the encouragement to go for it! The yearning to be healthy is a good gift from God - imagine God smiling as we develop healtheir disciplines.

    keyslady. I tried to go to your page put I couldn't so I wasn't sure how to leave a message. Hope you get this. I think the idea of trusting God is focusing on Him and His will not on my weight and what I am eating. Yes we have to do our part and watch what we eat and exercise but the trust part is knowing we are in His will doing what He wants us to do. He gives us strength to do what we know we should be doing. It is our choice if we do it.

  this is a good blog for me. I have trouble with determining how to trust God when I am the one who is determining what is going into my mouth. How much of weight loss is what I do and how much of it is His grace and enpowerment. I've been dealing with weight loss for so many years that I've become lost in the fog of failed attempts. Can you give some insight??

    Donít counted God out, JC . Many cried out to Him, but they probably do not believe that He is listening, or that He will not be able to do anything to help them. But, God always has a message of HOPE for Christians like YOU! Praise Him and Give Him all the glory! Vic.
