late Jan 09 Update:
On a Spark Break: Lost my mother-in-law recently, and things are a bit overwhelming lately.
Will try to check in now and again.
Miss you all!
Found SP June 17th, 2008.
Hungry for more of God.
What can I say?
I'm madly in love with Jesus!
He's my passion, (and I'm His!)
Update: I am still here with SP, though it's been up and down.
(Was AWOL most of Nov/December!)
Am seeing how I struggle to change.
SP is helping me see and keep track of my physical self, but I am becoming aware that my emotions are something I need to take care of, and manage, somehow.
Am tracking FBS better, and becoming aware of aspects about me I didn't realize...
I am vulnerable, emotionally and physically at times...
How do I strengthen, guard, and keep myself healthy in all areas?
Pressing in to God for emotional strength - He Is my Rock, my Fortress...
How do I depend on Him for my physical care of this temple?
Learning to turn even me over to Him, a moment at a time, a decision at a time. (Help me, Lord! How I love You! You know the way that I take... )
2 Jan 09: Knee injury is better!
For Christmas, DH gave me pedal thing to use when watching videos! It helps, if I will remember to use it!!
Just starting here:
-lose 70 in 8 months.
-eat less, move more (exercise).
2 Jan.09: Guess I need to get my fat head in line first! Just learn to accept me first?
I WAS making progress; drinking more water, eating healthier, exercising more... then I got 'busy', and let things 'slide'!
I am keeping a part time job now (20 hours a week); that is a big change for me, a good thing!
Trusting God that I am making progress, even when I cannot see it on the scale?
Maybe I am not serious or honest with myself about losing the weight? Why am I holding myself back?
Time to start over with SP, I guess! 2009; is this the time?
-Learn how spirit, soul, and body go together.
-Get some self- discipline, more freedom and joy!
-See myself & others as God does!
so I can more fully reflect the love God has.
Arise and walk in the fullness of what God ha
-Allow SP to guide some changes, practice and learn, for now...
track physical performance... stay in touch with what is working for others!
(Finding motivation by earning points and staying accountable to others!)
OK, Jan 2009; time to regroup and start tracking in areas I have "let slide"!
Time to get motivated and press in on getting healthy! Time to remove old things that are blocking progress!
I WANT to make this change!
I'm getting too old to be this fat!
-Stick close to Jesus .
-Read my Bible, and do what it says.
-Eat when I'm hungry, stop when I feel comfortable.
-Do away with deadlly eating, and get on with divine living!
Love living in Indiana since '03!
