Slowly but Surely

I joined SP in May of 2011 to get out of a rut of poor food choices and too little exercise (resulting in a slow but steady weight gain of about 10-15 pounds over several years). I am Catholic, and realized that I was not treating my body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. I don't want to become obsessive about the numbers on my scale or clothing tags, but I do want to be a good steward of this body God has given me.

I lost about 15 pounds between May and December of 2011, and then lost my motivation, and gained around 5 of it back. By October 2013 I was within a few pounds of my goal weight, and then got pregnant! So for now I'm trying to have a healthy pregnancy, and worry about my goal weight after that. My lifetime goal is to stay around my final weight, but more importantly, to make sure I get good nutrition and an adequate amount of exercise each day. I still struggle a great deal with choosing healthy foods over junk food, and that's definitely something I need to overcome. Though since I got pregnant, I haven't been craving sweets like I used to. I hope this stays with me!

The adventure of life is to learn.
The purpose of life is to grow.
The nature of life is to change.
The challenge of life is to overcome.
The essence of life is to care.
The opportunity of life is to serve.
The secret of life is to dare.
The spice of life is to befriend.
The beauty of life is to give.

~ William Arthur Ward

Have a wonderful beginning of this new week!

May we on this 4th of July be grateful for our Freedom and think of all those who paid the high price of our freedom with their lives. Let us also remember those who are defending our freedom right now.

God Bless American and keep her One Nation Under God, for Liberty and Justice for All.

Laugh too much, smile too much, sing too loud, take too many pictures, forgive freely and love like you've never been hurt. Enjoy your life and remember, every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.

If you live your life being happy, you'll have no regrets and once will be enough. Today has a miracle in it for you, hope you can recognize it.
