Two birds with one stone
I have been trying to get up earlier lately. I need to get more things done and the best time to get them done is in the morning. Quite a change for this night owl! But I know I have to do it.
I'm also, of course, trying to eat less. And on... Read more
Today I'm tracking my food. If I don't think I can track it, I'm not going to eat it. Period.
It occurs to me that I can approach this just as I would any new habit: One thing at a time. So today's habit is TRACKING MY FOOD.
I had to "... Read more
Once again I say...I've got to get back on track!
How many times will I do this to myself?
How many times does it take for me to go to my closet, pull out a shirt, put it on and realize that I'll be okay if I only stand. If I sit, I risk tearing the shirt apart at the seams. And so, I chan... Read more
Making smaller goals
I've been reading a lot lately about making goals. I realize that I haven't been very good at doing this. Most of the time I set my goals so high that I'm frustrated I can't reach them. So I've begun to learn to set smaller goals, keeping the la... Read more
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
