Day Five: Progress Report
Wednesday, January 05, 2011
God is blessing me so much. I am not perfect but I am really trying as hard as I can to follow what I believe to be a healthier lifestyle. I definately LOVE my devotions and my Bible reading and my Prayer time. I don't think I pray enough but I am going to work on that. I know that I don't Pray enough in fact because the Bible says to Pray without ceasing and I have not been true to my Prayer time as much.
Since the Pizza incident I have been able to resist many things including the candy bars in the check out lane at the store today. WooHoo! I was so proud of myself because I wanted one really badly. I resisted the cookie the other day and that was not like me either. I have to stay focused on God and when I am able to do that he helps me through.
I didn't do the treadmill yesterday. I had every intention. I got home and put my status that I was going to change my clothes and jump on the treadmill and then Joe whisked me off to town and we got busy and I never got back to it. So, I appologize to those who were proud of me for that status post it was inaccurate.
I watched the Biggest Loser last night it was the first episode of this new season and I just sit on the couch and cry when I watch that show. My heart just pour out to these people. They have turned to food for their comfort for so long that they are literally killing themselves. I think while I am watching this show that "Yes, they need to change their lifesytles and lose weight, BUT above even that they ALL need to know JESUS and the saving Grace of God. If they have a place to turn to for peace and comfort other than food they would have a much better chance of a permanent change.
Today, I did do the Treadmill. I did even better than before. I went for my usual 30 minutes but each time I get on I push my mph and my distance by doing that. When I started day one I went 1.12 miles in 30 mins: day two I went a little farther can't remember; day three is was like 1.32 miles in 30 then yesterday I didn't do it then today 1.38 miles in 30 minutes. I am going to try to get to 2 miles in 30 minutes then I am going to increase the time to 35 minutes. We will see...
Today I got a cramp in my left leg just below my knee joint and a little to the inside of the tendon. I slowed down my speed for a bit until I walked it out and then back up I went on the speed.
I love you all thank you for all your support I would not have gotten this far with out you all...
Stick around I have a long way to go but with you and God on my side I will make it!
I also started using my Whey Protein Powder in my Breakfast Smoothie this morning. I will let you know if I think it helps. Right now I see 110 calories in one little scooper of dry powder and that makes me sad at times because I want to use those 110 calories eating food...hehehe
But while tracking my food I noticed that my Protein levels NEVER got up to the lowest recommended level and most of the time they were even at half. I can't build muscles without that protein so here I go...
Have a Great Day!
PS: God has been blessing me with a job assignment everyday this week but Monday. I have Thursday and Friday scheduled already and two days next week pre-scheduled. God is so amazing. What showers of Blessings!
