I had a blog all planned out this morning when I was in the shower. Then I went to church, and everything I was thinking of this morning got washed out of my brain. I was so blessed by our guest preacher, Who preach on Hebrews 11. His basic gist was that the list of those who were faithful is not complete. It is a history of those who had faith in Jesus, and that this list continues on in history and includes those of us here today, who believe in him and act in accordance.
Okay, I JUST remembered some of what I wanted to blog about. I am a member of the ORGANIZED LIFE TEAM, where I am learning to organize my home. I am a member of the CHRISTIAN WOMEN WITH DEPRESSION, where I get support for my depression, and where I am studying a book titled "Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food" by Lysa TerKeurst with other women in my team. In that team I am being supported by prayer, and encouragement. I subscribe to several of my friends blogs which allows me to also gain encouragement. The 50+ WITH 50-99 LBS TO LOOSE team is made up of men and women who are trying to loose weight who are my age, and my weight, so I feel there a common bond. I joined the LOOSING WEIGHT WITH DISABILITIES, because I wouldn't call myself disabled, I do at times suffer from severe knee pain from arthritis and having my knees replaced and there I find support from others who find it difficult to exercise. I am on the TEXAS team because I live in Texas. I just joined a team for CROCKPOT RECIPES, in the hopes I can learn some new recipes toward healthier cooking and eating.
My point is that I have found a variety of ways here on SP to get support and to give it. One of the things that encouraged me to stay on SP was the fact that there are people in my age bracket and weight range who have SUCCESSFULLY lost weight using SP. I hope to be able to do that also.

Today I prepped the walls of the room we are going to paint. My son had lots of nails in the walls. I removed all of the wall plates.
Then we ordered new windows last night for the entire upstairs, and everything needs to be moved in order for them to be put in, so I cleaned out three bookcases in one room which were under a window, and cleaned out a box of books to get rid of.
Also moved stuff around in another room to make access to the window.
And finally, I made floor charts for two rooms, the one we are going to paint, and the guest room, on graph paper, and made the pieces of furniture out of the graph paper so that I could figure out how I want it to go. This is how I always do things. I was very happy with how it turned out.
Hubby spent the day taking fence parts from the yard of the house behind us that the city is going to tear down, and replacing our fence parts.
(the city bought 50+ houses in our neighborhood that flooded last year and is tearing them down and adding to the park area.) Our house is on top of a hill and so have no danger to be flooded.
Very busy day.

I haven't been feeling well this week. Did PT on Monday and Wed. Skipped it Tuesday.
Didn't exercise yesterday. This not feeling well is not in my body, but in my mind and in my emotions.
So I know that exercise is good for me, and will also make me feel good. Or better.
So, I exercised today.
I did 20 minutes on my exercise bike, followed with two chair exercises from my PT and then two floor exercises. I am about to go for a short ride with a friend to drop her daughters off at my daughter's house for a sleep over. When I talked to my daughter earlier today, I asked her to ask me if I had exercised. She said she would. She is my accountability for today.
My mood isn't exactly better, but maybe it takes a while.
I am not going to give up, I read on someone else's signature today that this takes work, and well I worked.
