I haven't been the same since I had to have my knees replaced. For a while I could go without my cane but I had to get another surgery last September. I also am wearing braces on both of my legs which go up to my knees. I don't think that I am getting better. I was fired from my job and I must find another another one so that we can pay our bills. God will make a way.

Uploading a picture from the day we went to The Price is Right.. My husband got on stage with a chance to win $10,000. Unfortunately he didn't win. We had a great time and will go back when we get a chance. He can't be a contestant again for 10 years.


Finally back!

I had abandoned spark people and I have returned. My dh has joined and we have very different dietary needs. I have just planned my meals for tomorrow. He is on his laptop doing the same. We have gone to the gym everyday this week. I am going tomorrow but he isn't because he has tracked his activity and doesn't need to go tomorrow.
I have made a lot of items and have posted pics on Facebook. Check me out-


Over Whelmed

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

Wow! I am tired! My mother died on Friday, April 30, 2010. The funeral arrangements have been made, burial arranged, obit brother, son, and dil come in tonight.
This morning my husband had to get a heart cath done. The nurse said we need to watch him because he may bleed. I guess it is my state of mind, but I am on edge!
I know I need to chill and keep telling myself to chill, but it doesn't happen.
One of my church sister's lost her sil to cancer today. She went in her sleep. Another close member is struggling with frequent TIA's
My son and dil are expecting their first baby. They already know that it is a girl and the expected due date is October 18th!
I am trying to stay chilled by working on a knitted baby throw which is a difficult pattern.

    Lots to deal with. I will send a prayer your way to help. I bet you are tired with all that has happened to you lately.

Focus on the positive and keep your head up high. You can manage. You are stronger than you think you are!!

Good luck at the funeral! Also, good luck with your knitting project. That should help you de-stress once the funeral is over.

Hugs to you!!! emoticon

    emoticon emoticon Praying for you right now - what a lot to bear right now! May Jesus hold you up and give you and your family strength & and comfort right now; and protect your husband and give him healing.

I know I've told myself to chill out in the midst of stress so many times - but the more I tell myself, the more stressed out and overwhelmed I feel.... Sometimes it helps to go off alone if you can & have a good cry - let it out. I'm praying that your family is a support to you, and that your sisters in the church receive comfort and strength from Our Rock and Our Healer.

What a great idea, and a generous one, to destress by knitting a baby throw! emoticon

Blessings... emoticon emoticon

    Bless you! We change what we can and accept what we can't. Remember to breathe and take a little "me" time. You must remain healthy in order to help with those that are not. emoticon

I am disappointed in myself

Monday, September 28, 2009

I started a Bible study that was supposed to help me with weightloss but instead I feel more helpless than ever. Overeating is a sin and I confess that I am an overeater. I need to eat much less now I am obsessed. I know that I am still overeating because I am stuck. I know I need to exercise more, harder and I am doing the best I can. I have not reached the amount of exercise I was doing when I started losing weight. I am trying my best-still I'm not doing enough. Today I was so stessed that I haven't eatten a meal. I have had v-8 fusion a granola bar and water. I don't feel hungry and it's 9:20 I am ready for bed. Yes I walked today, yes I cycled today and I made 7000+ steps. I went to the doctor. My husband went with me. He was out all day taking his aunt and uncle around. Then he took me to the doctor and to the grocery to get a few things to make cookies for the pot luck at work. The plan is Mexican and I made Mexican Wedding cookies. I didn't go to the wellness center because I wanted my husband to get a little rest, but he did some laundry. I am getting fitter I guess but my weight is not going down. Tomorrow should be a better day. emoticon

    In our weakness HIS STRENGTH is made perfect. We are all helpless to sin and it is only with God that we can make it through.

Do your very best to honor God's temple in you. Pray when you feel the urge to indulge. Feed your spirit with the Word.

God will see you through and He honors our sacrifices. emoticon

    Romans 8:1 - There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION for those who are in Christ Jesus

I understand how easy it is to become obsessed with a topic that you feel you can't conquer, but I'm also currently doing a Bible study about controlling thoughts and bringing them into alignment with God's Word - not your opinion of yourself. According to the Bible, Jesus does not condemn those who bring their sins & problems to Him, it's actually quite the opposite. In Philippians 4:6 we are told to bring our requests to God and not to be anxious (DON'T WORRY!!).

Pray & let God know what He already knows - that you want to honor Him and not sin by abusing your body through either overeating or undereating. Then, do your best for today. At the end of the day if you didn't reach your goal, let it go - you can't change it. Just go to bed with another prayer to your Father, and wake up again tomorrow and ask for guidance once again.

I'll be praying for you!!

    In order to lose weight, you do need to eat. Your body will begin to fight back and will stop losing weight if you are not eating. God created food for the nourishment of our bodies. It is the substance that provides us energy. I am also starting my weight loss regime, and I am working towards (although not there yet) eating God's food. Fresh, clean food that comes from the ground or from an animal. These are the gifts God gave to us and this is what I am working towards eating in my diet. NOT the chemicals that man has made. Therefore if you are overeating garbage, then that is gluttony and sinful. If you are eating God's food, you are honouring what God has given us.

Too much!

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Since I made 7000 steps virginhealthmiles has finally says that I have completed an activity session. They gave me 100 points for reaching it the first time. I believe they give 60 points for each 7000 step day. So far today I am at 7548-let me tell you how I got there.
This morning I rode the exerise bike,the I walked at lunch and both breaks. I went to water aerobics but that doesn't give any steps, just 10 points for exercise. When I got out, the car battery was dead and my husband called for road assistance-they said it would be 45-50 minutes so I did my land program complete with weights. Boy are my legs tired!
The assistance did not come-we called and they said that the person could not find us. Then we found out they had a wrong phone number-they dialed area code 512 our area code is 502 why didn't the guy call without the area code? Then they had the wrong address. We had to wait another hour before assistance came. Too much!
