What is going on? Is it just me that feels there's an awful lot of devastation around us. For me, lately, it started with the young Luge guy at the Olympics dying. A skater lost her mom to a massive heart attack, just 2-days before she had to skate. Now earthquakes and Tsunamis. It just said on the news that Japan may get what we thought Hawaii would experience. USA was lucky.
I heard that Argentina had an earthquake as well as Chili.
I feel so bad for the families of those who died. The Luger's parents probably said, 'Good luck, have fun, see you when you come home, with or without a medal'. Never did they think their son would come home in a coffin.
The ice skater probably had plans to have dinner with her parents, maybe shopping, seeing the other events at the Olympics. Seeing her parents in the stand after she skates. But no, just her dad. Her mom was just 55 years old. I cried through her routine.
My heart breaks for family and friends.
God is still trying to get our attention, 'Pull your life together before it is too late'.
They've been saying, for a long time, that we are living in the end times. Someday the Rapture will come and all the saved in Jesus will go home to be with him.
As a Christian, I do believe that Jesus is God's son. By believing and confessing we will be saved and go to heaven when we die.
I know, some people don't believe that, but if I am.....where will you be when you die? Don't need to answer. Just blogging my thoughts.
Most of the stories in the news haven't been exactly uplifting, have they?

Okay, so I wasn't so gung-ho on the exercising today. I've been watching tv news about the possible Tsunami, so glad what we expected didn't take place. Things could have been worse. I think God is trying to tell us something. So many things happening in the world.
I should have been exercising while watching tv. I won't get the minutes in that I had yesterday. Tomorrow, I must do better and stay off of facebook until I have accomplished something substantial. I ended up redoing FarmTown because I bought a dairy barn. Geesh!
A year ago I weighed 93 lbs, now I'm around 109. Then I was doing a Wii Challenge and it helped me lose inches. Along with the treadmill and other routines. If only I would have started back on my routine when I started to gain, but no, I was too lazy.
By the end of this BLC round, I plan to be able to fit into my jeans and be as close to my goal weight of 98 lbs. If I was 5'5", I wonder if my weight would be shifted around so I would be skinny? Maybe most of my inches would be in my....bra! Couldn't hurt. I use to say I was an A-- cup.
Oh well, I'll try to do better tomorrow. I still have time to put in some more minutes tonight.

Our SPRING challenge sounds like a pretty good challenge.
S~Share. Make a blog.
P~Pump it up with strength training
R~Rest, 6 or more hours a night
N~Nutrition, stay in range
G~Get hydrated, 8 glasses a day.
I think I will be able to do most of them except the Rest. Being a caregiver to my mom, I have to get up during the night sometimes. It is hard to get back to sleep. She doesn't go to bed until around 11:30 at night. She does a lot of sleeping in her chair so, if I'm pre-occupied with doing something...like Facebook, it may be later getting her to bed.
I am also on another challenge with the Weekend Challenge team...LOSE. Have to count certain strength training. Two birds with one stone! Count the minutes for BLC and the reps for Weekend C.
I look forward to these challenges to hopefully get back into shape like I was a year ago. I look forward to the eating challenges so I will eat more fruit and veggies and for the cardio/strength challenges.

I've made some major bloopers in my numbers of exercies. It has been on the some cardio. I mistakenly counted the reps instead of minurtes. I have corrected and will make up the minutes and not count them so all will be fair.
I hate when I do stupid things like this. I'll do some yard work or heavy duty house cleaning and not count it on the tracker.
I don't get a long very well with numbers. Sorry. I did make corrections on tracker.
You know, maybe I haven't been making a mistake. Where I thought I did, the exercises were posted to the Quick tracker and I used a timer. I made the mistake on the cardio at the bottom of the Fitness page.
Where do they track our minutes? On the part at the top where we post all our minutes or at the bottom where we breakout our strength and cardio exercises?
I have been posting correctly at the top.

I tried my jeans on, okay the largest pair I have, and they fit!!! Now if I don't breath I might be able to wear them when I go out to the store. It has been months since I wore jeans. ahhhhh!!!
I have to keep up a routine of leg and hip exercises and maybe I will be able to fit into my other jeans.
To thnk, a year ago I was wearing my 'smalls'. I was skinner than I've ever been, well, maybe in my 30s, but then I didn't know I was skinny. The days before the metabolism kicked in. Days when I didn't HAVE to exercise to fit into my clothes.
Now I have renewed hope. I was skinny before, I know I can do it again. I never knew I could have thin thighs or hips, but I did. Just have to put the time and energy into it and cut out a lot of outside activities.
