My family and I are serving the Lord in Wittenberg, Germany. We are active in starting new churches in the former Soviet Union.
Though we live an active, fairly healthy lifestyle, I have a lot of embedded attitudes towards food and eating from my youth that I need to overcome in order to be healthy and keep the weight off. I have watched as unhealthy lifestyles have robbed my children of their grandparents and I don't want to do that to my children and grandchildren.

I am revisiting my goals from the past that aren't quite habits -

1. Being faithful to take my vitamins every day. Without them, I don't get the magnesium or Vit D that I need.

2. Get my cuddle time in daily with my kids. When they grow up, they won't remember how much I weighed nearly as much as they will remember how much time we spent together.

3. For the next 8 weeks, I will give 100% compliance to the MyLine eating plan.

4. I will attend the gym at least twice a week and put money in the piggy band each time that I do so that I will have some money set aside to buy new clothes at the end of summer.

I will be following the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan and have just started learning about T-Tapp.

Personal Information:
I grew up in small-town Ohio, married a guy from small-town Iowa and moved to Germany. We now live just south of Berlin in Wittenberg, the hometown of Martin Luther the Reformer. We are enjoying the adventure.

Other Information:
I just read a book entitled, "How to be a Kraut". It is a "must-read" for anyone moving to Germany. Hilarious!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. We don't have a lot of hills in our area. There is one near the house, but it is not on the route to the library. I'm hoping I will be able to talk my daughter into riding with me when the snow finally melts. Happy Easter.

    Poem I received in "daily strength for daily needs" which I get through email:

    I am glad to think
    I am not bound to make the world go right;
    But only to discover and to do,
    With cheerful heart, the work that God appoints.
    I will trust in Him,
    That He can hold His own; and I will take
    His will, above the work He sendeth me,
    To be my chiefest good.
