I have been meditating on Mark 11 this morning and praying and getting so much Wisdom from the Lord. I found out something that I already knew. The Word Answers Everything! Your Answer is in His Word! Praise the Lord.
I was talking to Him about the weight loss goal...or rather He was talking to me. He told me that 30 lbs for Him is like 5 lbs to the World. When He is involved in Your "Project" He does it up BIG. But we have to HAVE FAITH IN GOD or really...HAVE THE FAITH OF GOD.
So I have decided that I am not going to think about these pounds I want to lose. I'm going to REST in the Word and keep TRUSTING God to Perfect ALL that concerns me. HE is Faithful Spark friends. He Loves everyone of us and He knows the struggles and the so called short comings that we may have but we must HAVE FAITH IN GOD!
Ok...I'm not going to preach but it's the Truth and knowing the Truth and DOING the Truth sets you free.
I am so thankful to God for my life. I am thankful to SparkPeople for this opportunity to better my self with all these special tools that helps me along my journey to a more fit me. I am thankful for the teams I am a member of. Thankful for all the support from my great SparkFriends! I am thankful for my two children who have never had a major illness in their lives. I am thankful for the Blood of Jesus that was Shed for me. Oh How Marvelous are the works of the Lord!!!
Just wanted to share some Truth with you and also I snatched that picture from my friend and one of my leader's Wildflowerr's page. Our God is an Awesome God!!!
Enjoy your Friday and all of your weekend! Smile. Have Fun! Attend Worship Service if you can. Many Blessings to you all!!!
Fighting with all your might
Laying your lives down
Freedoms are in your sight
As soon as your feet hit the ground
Trying with All your insight
To help other countries be sound
Even when it's a tough fight
You are always Found
Even when things were tight
And the enemy was all around
He gave you the Light
To Bring the enemy down
We Honor You Today...You are Shining Bright
Our Thankfulness abounds
Thanks for bringing Love to our Sight!
Truly I honor all the Military of the United States of America. Grew up as a child of an Air Force Man, my father served for over 30 years and I give him honor today for that.
Thank You Father God for this Nation's Strong Military Force. This Nation's Military must Stay Strong. God Bless Every Veteran and their Families. Alive or with the Lord.
These pictures came from the Bowling Alley out by Oral Roberts University. A very nice place. I didn't bowl...this was an outing for my family's High School Alumni. No...I went to a different school...because I wanted to. lol
Family that were there except for my little 14 year old cousin who went and hid. lol
My brother and his 2 sons.
My nephew, my sister and myself
My brother and sister and me!
Well I had a great drive there and back with my cousin. It was so good to get out and go home. I even went to church on Sunday...of course I already told you about that. It's always nice to see family and friends. I hope you enjoyed my family because I did.
My great-niece Bri'. She is so smart and just 3 years old. Speaks Spanish!
Now I'm going to service. Enjoy your evening!!!
(Don't forget:All Spark will be down for maintenance tonight from 11pm EST-7am EST 11/11/10.
What will I do?
Today was finally my first Physical Therapy appointment. It was long but I loved that heat on the back of my neck. It actually hurt that pain. This has been since 8/30/10. Too long.
She told me that I needed to take it slow and don't jump on the mini tramp yet. Ha Ha Ha!!!. That's a little too late but I will follow her directions and stay with slow walking and strength training. She was a nice therapist. Melissa. That paperwork took a bit to complete but it was done when I arrived very early. But I didn't mind. I had ny CD player with me and had a great Message playing.
I'm going to do what she says so that I won't get a big set back.
She used a hot pack my neck and a cold one on my knee. The air was on so that ice pack was too cold for me. That heat really helped my neck a lot. I am so ready for all the pain to go away. But it does take time for a body to heal properly.
I have some exercises for my neck and knee that should help. Won't burn many calories but oh well. I' m happy to be on the right road for now.
I'm sleepy and ready for bed.
I think I've had too many carbs all at one time. I missed lunch so I was hungry when I got home.
I cooked some great baked chicken legs and black eyed peas and green beans. I also had some sherbet and it was great. Only 1.5 grams of fat but 26 grams of carbs.
The experience was new but not boring. I have 7 more sessions to go so I'll be busy until December. My favorite month!
Hope your day was great and educational in some way. Enjoy the ability to work out if you can. Just do it and be consistent. It all pays off in the long run!
An older picture of me from earlier this year. Love my hair! lol
Procrastination is one of the words that I want to cut out of my vocabulary. You know how you think about doing something (like losing weight, starting an exercise plan or cleaning out that hall closet) and put it off over and over again?
Now since I've started the weight loss process and love to exercise I'm still waiting to link my thoughts with my actions and get that closet renewed. I'll do it...eventually.
Putting off something I can do today until another time is fruitless. I would hate for someone else to have to delegate my trash from treasure.
I sometimes workout late because I'm thinking about doing it earlier but the time passes and I'm getting it done later than I wanted to.
I mentioned in another blog that I eat my meals late sometimes or most of the time. Does that cost me anything? If I have not met all of my nutrition goals it can and it does. Coming up short on protein and it's 10 pm I'm not wanting to eat meat nor do I desire to eat beans that late. So how do I plan on conquering this word and taking it out of my life?
Just doing it. What made me want to work this out was paperwork I received to take filled out to the Physical Therapy appt I have tomorrow. I received on Saturday. Didn't fill them out then and pledged...to myself...to complete them on Sunday. But...IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
Well I'm going to complete part of them today and the rest before the 2:30 appointment. It's almost midnight here and I really should have taken them with me while I was completing some work and wiped them out but I can't keep thinking about what I should have did. But next time I will.
I am pledging to do better on procrastination...that's why it has taken me this long to get fit and fine...lol...fit and healthy. It's all good. Do any of you have a problem with Procrastination? Maybe I'm the only one on this side of Sparkland. Have you already conquered Procrastination? Let me know all about it!
