Hubby's Teachable Moment

Saturday, April 06, 2013

My Hubby watches on the sidelines as I engage with Spark People. Well yesterday, I had a teachable moment with Hubby. We had to attend a funeral and instead of parking further from the church, which offered an “easy in easy out” escape; Hubby opted to park closer to the church which was clearly a bad choice for getting out after the services. So I sat quietly and did not say a word (I am so proud of myself). emoticon After the services, we walked to our vehicle and saw that we could not get out for we were blocked on all sides. So we visited with people that were passing us as they walked down the road to their car, others were still inside enjoying the Repast. Finally we got in our vehicle to wait for our vehicle to be cleared for travel. I quietly opened my Kindle to finish reading my book and Hubby reached for the newspaper that he had remembered to bring. So we waited, and waited and waited for our vehicle to be cleared to come home. At last, we were able to travel again. After lunch, we joked about our morning, I gently told my Hubby that if he exercised a little each day, he would feel better and be able to handle a walk down a country road, if he needed to. Hubby looked at me as if the light had come on and said, “it is the little things, isn’t it”? Well Spark Friends, Hubby is on the treadmill and just for today, he is following through with his plan to exercise. Just for today. “She girds herself with strength, and strengthens her arms”. Proverbs 31:17 (NKJV) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good for you for being quiet, I don't know if I could have been so good, lo. But because of your kindness he listened to you and is now exercising. Good job. Maybe soon you will be going on country walks together. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good for you and hubby! I am still working on mine. Our grandson was here for Spring Break and he "suggested" that grandpa needed to start eating healthier and walking like grandma! (LOL) I think he just might listen to the grandson! emoticon

Can't Find your Calorie Counter?

Friday, April 05, 2013

Are there days that we cannot locate your calorie counter? emoticon On days like these, there is a wonderful web site (www.self.com) that lets us know how many calories we are burningto post to our favorites and add to our Fitness Spark Tracker. In addition to exercises we can check our calorie burned while cleaning the house, dusting and working in the yard just to name a few. All calorie burns counts and it all adds up as we continue our journey to a healthier lifestyle “We have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus…cleanses us from all sin.” 1Jn 1:7 NLT emoticon emoticon

Great Day Defined

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Recently, I read a sign on a bus that said, “Have a Great Day”. The sign brought to my remembrance, what a friend said when I told him the same thing; he responded, “Make your Day Great”. Reflecting on his statement, I am reminded that I am in control of my day. So my Spark Friends, make our day great by choosing today that we will do what we can to live a healthier life and do it just for today. For each day is a new canvas to make it what we want it to be. “The tongue of the wise promotes health.” Pr 12:18 NKJV. Enjoy today. emoticon emoticon

    I like that. I know at work, people will tell me that I seem happy all the time. I tell them that I am stuck here for 8 hours a day so I make the best of it......it's all in how we handle things!

Off the Web and Glad to be Back

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Wow Spark Friends, it is good to be back. Our town has been off the web because a work person did not contact the 811 people (they identify everybody’s wires) prior to their construction. One dig and everybody is cut off from the rest of the world for a while. You do not miss your water (web) until the well runs dry (someone cut the plug). Glad you be back, missed you guys. Let’s be considerate of others. “Be careful to do what is right.” Ro 12:17 emoticon emoticon
