Well, my daughter moved back home over the weekend, and her workout of choice is the Insanity program. I like the TapouT XT MMA program, though.

If you've tried either of these programs and aren't using the DVD's....would you consider passing the DVD's along to us for a while? We'd love to borrow them rather than buy, since money is an issue for us...if we can succeed, then we'll buy a set...

Day Nine

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Yesterday I posted a drawing that I've been working on and finally finished. God is not pleased when we neglect the gifts He gives (Luke 19:12-27) , so this is another goal I work on my gift as an artist. So far, I have met my goals to drink my water and to work on artwork, but the food thing is not happening till I have $$ to go grocery shopping! I checked out a few aerobic exercise videos and tried one out, but I don't see myself hopping around in my living room! I used to run in high school, and might take that up again, but building the endurance in the heat is SOOO hard. I like swimming, but no free facilities in our area so it's hard to do that without $$. Guess for now I'll just walk around the neighborhood.

  Very true. I used to do WeightWatchers and could walk 3.5 miles in about 20 minutes or so, but stopped. I can still walk pretty fast though, and the 5K group here has an outline to follow to get to the place where I can actually run in a 5K. Can you believe that in high school I could run a 6 minute mile!!? I would like to be able to do that again. I think I will! emoticon

    Walking is great exercise! and it is pleasant too!

You can still make wise choices about food, eat less carbs, more protein, smaller portions, there are ways to do this even with a pantry full of ice cream!! The hard part is the will power to say NO to all the stuff that we want to stuff in our mouth!

Day One

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Joined SparkPeople today. Trying to worship God and submit to His plan for me. This includes the body. When God wants me to make my body a living sacrifice, take care of His temple, and glorify Him in my body, it no longer becomes a matter of choice, procrastination, excuses, or anything else but rather a duty to be performed with all my heart, mind, soul and strength, like it or not. It boils down to a matter of simple obedience. Weight loss and fitness then become an act of spiritual worship.

    You have that sooooooo right! It is a matter of spiritual worship. It makes me realize what a big sinner I am! I let the flesh influence me and I eat the wrong foods or just too much food.

But, that is why we are here and working to lose the weight and Glorify God!

Welcome! I hope we are a great support for your journey!
