A few days ago I decided to try "The Official 28 Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge." I have to do something different in order to lose this last 10 pounds, 5 of which I keep gaining back! I had gotten to my original goal back in July. Then my ... Read more
Mystery Tea and Living Dangerously
Thursday, September 30, 2010      8 comments

I'm living dangerously today! The coffee pot was empty, so I decided to have some tea instead. In my drawer filled with different kinds of tea was one unmarked bag so I had some of that. I still don't know what kind of tea it is, but I don't thi... Read more
Still struggling
Friday, September 24, 2010      13 comments

I think the title says it all...I am still struggling. My main problem is overeating, especially in the evenings. I may need to change my exercise, too. I have to get to work on some other things right now, but I just wanted to put this out... Read more
Trying to get back on track
Thursday, September 16, 2010      9 comments

Since I joined SparkPeople, I have lost about 25 pounds, which is great! I had tried to lose weight before, but never lost more than 5 pounds, and I always gained it back. And gaining it back is what is happening right now. I was doing very... Read more

Biblegateway.com's verse for today is John 6:29 "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent." I wanted to read the verse in context (because, of course, a verse out of context is a pretext) and when I did I remembered that this i... Read more
Kind of depressed
Friday, August 06, 2010      8 comments

I'm having an unmotivated sort of day. It started out okay; I got up earlier than I expected and had some quiet time/study time, then exercised for half an hour. I got a couple things done, then took my 17 year old son with me to get my new glas... Read more
I need motivation!

Today starts a sort of marathon for me. We leave for a mission trip to Cleveland early on Sunday morning, and I have a lot to get done before then. What I have to prepare for the Vacation Bible School (and afternoon craft time) we will be doing ... Read more
Tired, but inspired
Friday, June 11, 2010      7 comments

I am really tired this morning. Yesterday we had Vacation Bible School, as we have had all week. Then we got the room ready for the next day, I ate lunch, and then drove to Columbus to pick up Wes. It took us almost three hours to get his stuff ... Read more
Priorities
Monday, May 17, 2010      7 comments

Today was a trying day in some ways. However, in the midst of difficulty, sometimes God speaks very clearly. And today He said I spend WAY too much time on the computer. So, while I will still be actively tracking nutrition and fitness on Sparkp... Read more
Trying to control myself today
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      7 comments

I realize that I have had a lack of control lately. That sounds ridiculously simple, but sometimes when I'm in the midst of indulging yourself, I forget that it IS possible to control my eating. I had a snack of two graham crackers, and that's o... Read more

Oh, the love of God is so immense and overflowing! Whether you have just met Him or have known Him all your life, He always has new things to say. Words that you have heard before take on new meaning. This morning, Moody Bible Institute's "Today... Read more

Well, you all were saved from a really long blog! I accidentally marked a paragraph to move it, and I ended up deleting the entire blog. Ooops. ... Read more

Today my son and I brought home the two kitties we chose from the animal shelter. One of them was born at the shelter, and has lived there for all of his two years. For that reason, he's scared and has been hiding since we brought them home. The... Read more
I'm back! Now what?
Monday, April 12, 2010      10 comments

My husband and I went on a wonderful ministers and spouses retreat in Tennessee, then took a couple days off on our return trip. It was a great week, and I only gained a little less than a pound, so I did very well. (I found that after one day o... Read more
Calories and Exercise
Saturday, April 03, 2010      6 comments

I must admit I'm a little bummed. I changed my weigh-in date to Saturday, so I weighed myself this morning and saw that I was down two pounds. Cool. So I entered it, and then saw the notice that as one loses weight, one's calorie needs go down t... Read more
