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.

January, 2012: Coming soon . . . . . . . . goal setting!!

Member Since: 1/5/2007

Fitness Minutes: 7,815

My Goals:
To let God lead.

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.

    Thinking about you this morning and hoping all is well.

    Howdy! I am thinking of you this Christmas season and praying for your strength to persevere and overcome.

    There is a phrase in the Christmas story, telling of the birthing of the Christ child, that always stands out to me. “Nothing shall be impossible with God” Luke 1:37.

    If you are like me, we often dread this time of year and struggle to get through all the gatherings that inevitably hold out temptation to us. We see that Chocolate cream pie and fear having even a bite, afraid it will put us into a binge and knock us off track to gain multiples of pounds back after having worked so hard to lose them. But there is a God who holds out a hope to us. When we look to Him as Lord, bowing to Him with hope of His provision, we will find power to persevere, “For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment” (AMP).

    I am praying for you this season, knowing from personal experience that you can face this season with victorious power through Him. Read today’s blog for more (12/4/11).

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out" (and I do think that!! k.)
