Remind myself of one of Gods promises in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who s

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Well it has been a very tiring day for me. Out and about mowing and clipping trees again. Then off to raking up all the debris and loading up the trailer, then transporting it to the burn pile. All the while I am getting in as many steps that I can. Today I did get 4496 steps in. You would think that I would be losing weight like crazy. But just the opposite is true, I have gained 4 pounds. I am beginning to wonder if it is the live culture yogurt, that the doctor has told me to eat. I am measuring it out and eating it with fruit. But still, I think I am going to revisit m calories and weighing. Some where I am not doing something quite right.
But it is okay, I can keep going. I know that this is a temporary set back. I can do this and all things through Christ Jesus!

    If you are working like that you are getting in shape and will be healthier even if you dont see it on the scale now. I havent lost weight in a long time but I lose inches! there are many non scale victories!
Two things I had to do is not eat the same foods all the time or my body reaction the same so change it up so it has to change. And changed my type of activity or exercise to something different.

    The weight isn't dropping like fall leaves off me either but I keep moving. I know it will happen...one day. I do notice, however, that my muscles are toning up and that I move more freely. Keep on keeping on. You, too, will see POSITIVE changes...sometimes it's just slow in coming. You go girl!

    Still think you are doing great, and more than others. I would definitely journal, to see where those extra calories are coming from. Low fat yogurt sets you up for eating sweets, because it has a lot of sugar. I think that the non-fat yogurt is the best for you. eva

  Dont be discouraged. I know yogurt is very good for add loss. Just like someone said earlier buy the plain yogurts and add in your fruits and nuts and toppings. Also drink a lot of citrus. I was on such a plateau and was on the verge of giving up and drinking lemon and lime based drinks with no sugar (splenda) helped me so much. Ultimately regular exercise along with dieting is the only thing that works for me. Stick with it! You will see the miracle.

    Your right you can do it with Christ's help. Just ask and you shall receive. As far as yogurt, I was told to take it without the fruit in it and eat plain or vanilla yogurt and add fresh fruit to it. The fruit they have in the yogurts has more sugar. But take a close look at your journally, something may be slipping in that you don't realize. It happens to all of us. Besides shaking things up is a good way to jumpstart your program.

    Sometimes it just seems no matter what we do to "do it right" things just don't work out the way we thought they would. Keep on claiming that verse. And remember, All things work together for good" for those of us who are called according to His word.

Total Honesty

Thursday, September 04, 2014

It has been a long time since I have done a blog. Well today, I need to come clean. I haven't did so good staying away from the junk food. I have had a lot on my mind some real personal stuff and a few distractions with what once was what I thought was a close personal friend. We had a difference of opinion over reporting someone's comment one SP. I did not agree that it was offensive, since her comment was merely a question over a
SP article discussing menstrual cycles and hysterectomies. I really thought I had let go of this. I do forgive my friend for dropping me as her friend, but a situation arose and I needed to contact her, only to find my number had been blocked. So I had to email her with the information. Which was fine. I really don't know why this is bugging me about her blocking my phone number, but it is. I guess, even though I wasn't wrong in standing up for the other member and I still apologized for hurting this person's feelings 4 times. I just can't understand what I did so wrong to offend her. I let this eat at me today and bought some single serve cookies, only to find out there not so single serve. They actually have 3 servings to a single bag of those mini cookies. Whoo hoo, I thought I had ate 3000 calories today and was all bummed out. I really did not want to track my food, but I force myself to anyway to see what the damage was and guess what it really wasn't as bad as I thought it was. It wasn't good but not as bad as I thought "1915" total in calories eaten today.. Wow can you believe that. Good thing I got in 40 minute walk for a total of 2623 steps before the rain started in. I'll have to do double time tomorrow. And a whole lot of praying so God will walk me through this. I must remember to be humble and complacent at all times.
Thanks for letting me ramble on.
Love Always your sister in Christ

    SWEETIE DON'T ASSUME THAT YOU ARE THE GUILTY PARTY! Many times others don't deal with themselves, and how ridged they are. It is so much easier for them to walk away, or blame others! A mature person who truly cares for someone, tries to approach them and talk over the problem. What is interesting about your blog is that now you see how you deal with sadness emotionally, and that you also internalize that it's your fault! So you eat. I think that's why we all are on this site because we can't handle something in our life, family, friends, stress, abuse, or medical problems. I haven't talked to you in a long times because you haven't blogged or read my blogs. But that doesn't mean that I didn't understand who you are, or what your circumstances are. I think you are a very unselfish person, who is very honest & humbling! That person you feel so sad over, doesn't deserve the time you wasted grieving over your relationship with her. So please don't blame yourself like you are standing in judgment of yourself. you don't deserve to do this to yourself, because you are too sensitive, and sweet. I am sorry this happened to you. This site & club isn't free from negativity, sorry. eva

Remember All the Gross Things We did for Our Babies... Ugg

10 Disgusting Things Only Moms Do

1. Wipe snot with your bare hands. Proceed to wipe said snot onto your pants. What are you to do if your child blows snot and you don’t have a tissue?

2. Smell things to determine what they are. Is that poop? Did you just throw up? There’s only one way to tell…

3. Stick your hand in the toilet. Those pacifiers aren’t going to retrieve themselves.

4. Smell someones butt. The easiest way to determine if someone has soiled a diaper is to shove your face up against it and take a deep breath. Yep, that’s poop.

5. Wear baby spit-up with no intentions of changing. Yeah, I know I have spit-up on the front of my t-shirt – I can smell it, too. But what’s the point of changing when I’m going to be spit on again in 20 minutes?

6. Pick someone else’s nose. “Let me get your booger” is a phrase commonly heard at my house. I see them there and I just have to get them. Doesn’t gross me out in the least.

7. Allow your kids throw up on you. One time Brady got sick, started throwing up all over me and I just sat there and held him while he did it. I quickly moved into the bathtub before the second round hit but never once did I push him away from me. He needed to feel comforted much more than I needed fresh clothes. All moms do it. I’ve even known a few to catch it in their hands.

8. Investigate poop. The color, the amount, the texture… these things tell us a lot about our kids bellies. It also usually gives us too much insight into their last meal.

9. Clean their face with your spit. A good spit shine is just as good as a wet wipe.

10. Catch their unwanted, chewed up food in your hands. “Eww I don’t like this!” and then they lean over and spit the food into your hand before you have a chance to hand them a napkin. Why they feel like this, and not their plate, is the best option, I don’t know.

Tell me…what gross thing have you done as a parent?

    Good post. Yes for the love of a kind mother or grandma.
I have 3 grand babies. And though just a grandma now have had it all that you mentioned. Including cleaning up from a large dog in the car that got the runs. But went through all this with our 2 girls and a boy. Now with our son kids, and I do infant nursery at church 1 to 2 times a month.
Yet I know and have met some very uncaring people as well.

    Jill, I think we did the exact same things to our kids except the throw up. I actually never had full on throw up from either of my girls. But watch out there'll be grandkids someday and then I'll get it!! Of course too when the babies had a runny nose I was always out of tissues and we were in public somewhere. Which is worse your baby with a runny nose like you don't care or caked on snot on your pants? LOL I remember going to work with a crusty shoulder when my girls were babies because I'd feed and burp them before I took them to the sitter and never took the time to change my shirt. Thank goodness it was casual clothes. It's amazing what we do for our children!! Even now that they are adults. LOL but of course it's not the same things. HA!!

Note for Eva regarding dirty diapers, I don't know where you live but out here you see or step on dirty diapers in store parking lots, restaurant parking lots!!! Really???!!!! You can't walk to the trash can or you can't carry an empty grocery bag with you to put it in till you can toss it properly??!!!!

I think this was a great blog, and covered everything we do with our babies. Sounds like you are getting fed up, but there's nothing you can do about it. I wonder if people even put messy diapers into there diaper bag when there isn't anywhere to throw it out?

Happy in the Lord

Monday, May 26, 2014

Happy in the Lord today! There is no other feeling like it. I was just Blessed with forty dollars. I blessed two people this month and it has been return unto me!! Isn't that Wonderful.. I give and expect nothing in return, yet God is such a loving God. He takes such good care of me.
e Praise and Glorify Him in the Highest.

I just wish everyone could feel the joy that I am feeling today, it is so over whelming. To know for sure that I am going to be with Jesus when I leave this earth. Nothing matters except being with Him. Even death is possible to come to terms with once you have truly accepted Jesus as your Savior, His Spirit is so over whelmingly Beautiful and peaceful.
