We toured the State Capitol, did a little gambling at Wendover, attended a free concert at Station Park where my daughter is the concierge manager, and had a great church service this AM. Need to get out and walk today but ... Daughter and I are going to swim laps Mon, Wed and Fri AM this week.

  Congrats on your birthday!! You can get that 1.7 down...just get back on a plan. I've found that if I know I'm going to be going to a party or dinner, I plan it out as much as I can before-hand so that mentally I'm prepared when I get there. If I overeat, then so be it....I just try to cut back in other places, or simply start again fresh. Good luck and I'll be in touch! emoticon

  When you say it as 100 miles in one month, it seems like a lot. I bet it feels good to see th total grow on a daily basis, though.

Rising Like a Phoenix

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I have been in a valley for several days; usually don't stay down long and today I am going to rise like a phoenix!

The MRI and EEG results on my hubby were inconclusive as to causal effect for the seizures he suffered on 29 July so .... he must continue the anti-seizure meds for at least another 90 days. The medical profession is so baffling and frustrating at times!

I read a blog entry this morning that really opened my eyes -- FOOD has become my IDOL. I do not like this one bit as I don't want to worship anyone or anything except my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The entry went on to say that I love food and food loves every emotion I have. So, today, I am smiting this deceitful enemy and turning back to the One who loves me for who I am --- going to take a few days mentally, emotionally, and physically to clear the path but will be formulating my plan for September 1st.

    What a blessing to read your post....I know this idol is from the enemy. I become weak and defeated thinking the battle is lost because I failed so many times in the past. That is a LIE from the deceitful enemy who prowls like a lion waiting to devour me. My eternity is guaranteed and the battles on this earth are but a refining mechanism until I am with Jesus. May God bless you during your time of reflection.
