My sister came to visit on Saturday and she's still here. Been enjoying each other around the house. Trying to stay warm. We had snow on Sunday but it did not last in my area and it is still really cold. 30's.
Saturday I walked to help my knee heal and it was very fulfilling.
Praise the Lord that He gave me the strength and courage to JUST do it after all these months of rehabilitation. It is hard to get back on track on your own but with others cheering me on and with my desire to persevere I'll be back on the cardio track in no time. Slow and Steady!
Sunday was a great morning with the Lord's Word being taught to me and My Spirit was and still is so full. I love His Word!
Sunday I made Homemade Black Bean Turkey Chili billed with crushed and diced tomatoes, onions and bell peppers and a lot of HEAT!
Had some broccoli and a small pan of cornbread. My sister loved it and it really was "DA BOMB!"
We talked a lot last night and just injured each other. She's resting from all of her Flight Attendant work. She's traveled all over the world last year and seen so many places. How blessed is that!
I know you are all DOING THE DO AND GETTING IT DONE! God is there for Help if you need it and we all are too.
God Bless Each and EVERY one of you. Remember that EVERYTHING is ALL-RIGHT!
Confession and Accountability: I cooked homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookies last night...and I ate a WHOLE lot of them.
Why Would I Sabotage my Journey????
1. I was bored?
2. I was hungry?
3. I was emotional eating?
4. I was eating because they taste good?
5. I needed to drink more water?
My answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE!
First I should have been working and I wouldn't have been bored.
Should have eaten a well balanced dinner and wouldn't have been hungry.
Could have dealt with the emotional thing by praying or reading my Bible.
Quit Lusting after a cookie.
Drink the water early to help feel completely full.
I'm being honest and walking in Integrity. I did it and I am ashamed.
AND I'm forgiven because I did REPENT. Thank God for His Mercy.
I am thanking anyone in advance for your comments and motivation that you always bring to me. I love this Place and Have had great triumphs in all areas of my life. I am BLESSED to have GREAT FRIENDS like you ALL!
SINGING; "I CAN'T GIVE UP NOW...I'VE COME TOO FAR FROM WHERE I'VE STARTED FROM...NOBODY TOLD ME THE ROAD WOULD BE EASY...I CAN'T BELIEVE HE BROUGHT ME THIS FAR TO LEAVE ME..."
Enjoy this Beautiful Thursday Where ever you are!!!
This is my YEAR for LIBERTY!

HE GIVES ME THE DESIRES OF MY HEART AS I CONTINUE IN HIS WORD. THEN AND ONLY THEN SHALL I KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH THAT I KNOW MAKES ME FREE. THANK GOD FOR FREEDOM IN 2011!!!

God bless Everyone on today! It's a beautiful day here in Texas. Springlike and moisture is all over the place but God has sent Rain for the Drought that we have been having and I thank Him for Helping to keep the grass fires gone.
One of our friends Baby_Girl69 suggested that we pray in 2011 and that's what I plan on doing. We pray in the good that we want to happen. Our goals that are new and fresh to be met. We pray in consistency and accountability. We pray to be motivators and to compete with OURSELVES. We pray in the Double of weight loss for everyone. We can do ALL things through Christ Who Gives US Strength. We pray to keep Trusting God and Walking in Faith. We pray not to beat ourselves up when we fail but to pick ourselves back up and continue on the program. I pray that more people will come to SparkPeople and see that getting healthy and fit and staying healthy and fit don't have to cost you anything but Perseverance. I know that you all will have the best 2011 ever.
MRI was good. Open type...I kept holding my breath. Probably won't get info from doctor until next year. Thanks for all the prayers and loving thoughts. I appreciate you all!!!
Have a very Exciting Wednesday night!
