Run with perseverance the race marked out for you!
I'd say it about killed me, but that would be an exaggeration, really. It wasn't easy, however, to run--well jog, really, for 90 second interval vs. the 60 second intervals from last week of the Couch to 5K training program. Still, I did it, but... Read more
Exercise really can give you more energy!
The following is from an e-mail I sent to my daughter-in-law in Germany. As I was writing it to her, I thought I'd share it with all of you as well. Note: Fritz is my husband, and Wartburg is a castle in Eisenach, Germany where we visited on our... Read more
God says: Love Me more than anything else!
I have been ill recently--starting with the stomach kind of illness, and that's all I'm going to say about that, except that of all the things I hate, that's up there at the top.
I have been very careful, then, to pay attention to what I'm ... Read more
I wish I could say...but God says to me...
I wish I could say: "I'm doing so well with my healthy eating plan!"
But God says: I love you even if you aren't eating healthy. It would be better if you did eat in a healthy way, though, because you would feel better and you would be taki... Read more
It's a plan!
I am reading "Made to Crave" again, and went to the team to see where they were. It looked like they were on Chapter 3, so I read that before I end my computer time today.
You have to have a plan. That's the main point of the chapter, whic... Read more
I don't want to eat. It's very strange.
On Friday I was sick--the stomach and intestinal kind of sick. I ate very little on Friday, a little more on Saturday, and a little more than the previous day on Sunday. I haven't felt the nausea since Friday, but I noticed this morning, as I'm ... Read more
It's time to start over. Again.
How many times have I told myself that it's time to start over? If I looked back on my blogs I would see that I have said it several times. And I've done it--started over and got back on track for a while, then something happens--a visit from a ... Read more
What do you think of FitBit?
I'm hoping someone will see this and comment. I have lost my Spark Activity Tracker! It must have fallen off my shoe last week and I can't find it anywhere.
I could replace it with another Spark Activity Tracker, but I'm thinking about gett... Read more
Addicted to chocolate?
I wonder if I'm addicted to chocolate. I think about it all the time. When I am upset, I want chocolate. When I am happy, I want chocolate. When I am bored, I want chocolate. When I am uncertain, I want chocolate. When I want to reward myself, I... Read more
When given the choice, don't choose like Lot
This morning as I was reading and praying Genesis 13, God reminded me not to choose like Lot. Abram and Lot had been traveling together, and both had large herds and many possessions. Fights broke out between Abram's herders and Lot's herders. S... Read more
Learning what it means to be hungry
The past couple days I've been doing partial fasts. I find in doing so that it's like hitting a "restart" button for my eating habits. It wasn't too hard, especially since I drank water whenever I felt "hungry."
I put "hungry" in quotation... Read more
God will transform the situation when we make the sacrifice.
It's all about sacrifice, isn't it? We have to give up something in order to get something. To get work done, we sacrifice time spent in leisure. We sacrifice for our children so they can have what they need. Jesus sacrificed His life for us so ... Read more
What does my craving look like? A bratty version of myself!
The question to ponder today is what my craving looks like. The first time I went through "Made to Crave," I think it looked like a big comfy couch, something in which to curl up and forget about the world. But now, as I am consider other studie... Read more
There is power in the name of Jesus = I made it through the day
The song "Break Every Chain" has been in my head for days now, and I think I know why. God knows that I need Jesus' power to break my slavery to food. So, literally, one day at a time, I will call on the name of the Lord and walk in His victory... Read more
I hope I'm not an April Fool to re-start "Made to Crave" on April 1st!
It's been a while since I've bee an active on SparkPeople. I have been entering fitness minutes, so it's not like I've been sluggish. But my eating habits! Arrrgh! I find myself thinking about food constantly, and giving in to the desire to eat.... Read more
