Hi Friends!

I am a Christian (Reformed) seeking to improve my health and grow younger.
The elliptical trainer and treadmill are my friends and God is all sufficient.

Member Since: 1/5/2007

Fitness Minutes: 7,815

My Goals:

To become stronger in Spirit, Soul, and Body. (Daily endeavor)

To lose 10 pounds.

To lose 30 pounds.
Oct. . . . .

To lose 40 pounds.(Get NEW clothes sizes. (WooHoo))

We'll see how I look and feel when I reach the 130 mark if it is "right".

My Program:
My husband and I go to the Y together,....... sometimes.

Eating in the lower calorie ranges and higher protein than the "pie" chart.

As I increase my exercise, I increase my calories. Still losing so far.

Personal Information:
I am 5' 2" and something tall.
I am 50+, married to a Hoosier, (Notre Dame fan).

I like Socal perfume/cologne from Hollister.

I like to read Puritan paperbacks and Banner of Truth publications.

I have an active part-time job, cleaning rental houses at Gulf Shores, (for Halekai Family Vacations, on the web). It's only seasonal and becomes sporadic after school starts.

I have a new job starting the first week of September at the Y, so I will probably be getting in more workouts.

Other Information:
I am a PW, (preacher's wife). I enjoy it, but sometimes so many activities take over my life and I don't get to the gym for days. This has got to change.
CHANGED: I work there.

    “FOR I want you to know how great is my solicitude for you, how severe an inward struggle I am engaged in for you ... and for all who, like yourselves, have never seen my face and known me personally.” Colossians 2:1, AMP

    Just want you to know that God has you in my heart as we face July with hope of victory. I am praying earnestly for us all that we well overcome and run to catch hold of the prise that faithfulness to the course will bring.

    “Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17, AMP).

    SparkPeople is a God-given opportunity to learn better ways of care for the body He graced us to have for life more abundant and full. May we fail-not in taking this opportunity to the full, spending all that is required of self to possess it as our own.

    I was reading 1 Corinthians 8 this morning in the Amplified version of scripture. Thinking of this Easter season when we recognize and celebrate the fact that God revealed the great depths of His love and desire for us by allowing His Son to give Himself as sacrifice for us, I realize from reading this passage in 1 Cor 8 that giving and receiving true love is our greatest gift back to Him in this season. In this Amplified passage, love for others is said to be revealed through our affection, goodwill and benevolence that edifies and builds up, encouraging those in our sphere of influence to grow to their full stature—becoming all God desires for them. Love for God is described as affectionate reverence, prompt obedience, and grateful recognition of His blessing, revealing ourselves to be in intimate relationship with Him, belonging to Him. I pray the love of God to abound to and through you in this season, to the glory of the God who loves us so much that He gave.
    Happy Easter! emoticon Darlene emoticon
