HOW IS YOUR HEALTHY NUTRITION MONTH GOING?

Monday, March 14, 2011



Well I'm doing much better and learning a lot. I also have learned a lot from the quizzes that they have placed on the points page. I actually learned that a serving of meat is only 3oz and not the 4-6 oz that I would eat sometimes. Not all the time. It's important just like making the correct moves during workouts, to eat the correct portion control. I have decided that I will load up on the green vegetables that can be considered a FREE food. That's why I think a salad before a meal with out all the heavy dressing is the best weapon against too big of a protein serving. emoticon

During this month I am also working on eating more and more vegetables especially the ones that I don't eat a lot such as asparagus. As always I'm working on getting my 8 glasses of water per day. emoticon

Making a better choice in the type of food that I eat is very important for me. I want to eat enough that it is filling and not calories that contribute nothing but useless extra calories when I could have eaten a serving of brown rice or mashed sweet potatoes. It's a conscience choice and ours to make for success. This is the beginning of our entire lifestyle change. emoticon

May you have a GREAT week in every area of your life. You are ABLE to take the steps needed to be a success. One day at a time and one step at a time! I love you!
Many Blessings!

    Glad to hear that you are making better choices!! I have done pretty well this month too. Just need to work in more green veggies. I do have a salad most times with dinner, but still need to work on incorporating more into my diet. emoticon

Keep up the great work!!

GOD IS A FATHER OF LOVE

Saturday, March 12, 2011

I join with countless others in prayer for the People of Japan, visitors and our Military men and women stationed there. They need our Powerful Prayers of Faith. He is a Father of Love. Satan comes to kill steal and destroy. We are called to intercede fervently in times as this. He needs our prayers.

My sister is a flight attendant and got out of Japan before the earthquake and was in Hawaii safe. Just water in the hotel parking lot but she had a room on the 26th floor.. I give praise to God for her safety.

For any of you. Impacted directly and would like personal prayer email me your name. My church is having a prayer meeting Sat morning and we also have a 24 hour prayer line with live prayers. We are here for you.

Thanks to all of you sharing your Love in prayer for them all. Our prayers avail much!
Love and God's Peace
Deb

  Thanks for sharing your prayerful spirit . Just want you to know that I am encouraged and inspired by your blog. I was also uplifted by your message about rest.

On yesterday I attended the homegoing service of a wonderful woman . It took a lot out of me and has caused quite a bit of introspection. The main message i received when reading your blog has been areminder of the value of constant prayer. May God continue to bless you. emoticon

REST DAYS ARE A MUST FOR ME!

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It's Great to be able to Walk or Run outside but it's also important to KNOW when your body needs a break from running. I have been pushing myself and praying and understanding when my body needs to rest. Period. emoticon

Some days I do a mild walk when I'm recovering from the pounding of the walk/run on the concrete. I guess if I do it at the Park's track it wouldn't effect me the same way. But resting is important. I've learned to rest between the strength training a long time ago too. Anything that can cause stress on the body needs rest days. Walking mildly is ok for a daily thing. Consult your health care provider. emoticon

One Step at a time and One Day at a time and I will get this weight completely off for good. Then...it's not over!!!

Many Blessings for a Happy Tuesday for you all! Time for lunch and back to Joyful Working!!!
Love You All!

    I agree 100%! I suspect that without my rest days I'd probably just bag this whole thing! Besides, our bodies need rest to recover from all the hard work and to give our muscles a chance to strengthen.

Have a great Friday!

FIVE MILES OF JOY...

Sunday, March 06, 2011

emoticon emoticon

Hello and Happy Sunday to All of my Wonderful Spark Family! emoticon

I'm having a GREAT day and it's all because I am filled with the JOY of the LORD, WHO IS my STRENGTH!

Today I did 5miles...part walking and a lot of running. I am so very proud of myself. I am becoming what I desire to be. He said if we delight ourselves in HIM He WILL give us the desires of our hearts. I prayed before I started and just let go and let HIM help me.

I think that this is what I've been needing for so long and I expect more results with pounds leaving quicker. If I can do it anyone can and if you don't like running or jogging is what I'm doing, get out and WALK. emoticon

Thanks for listening to my report. I'm expecting GREATER things to happen to ALL of us who are determined to do this JOURNEY for life!

Much Love and Blessing to You in Jesus Name!!!

    I am so impressed with runners. I just took a quiz that said I was ready to run. I am just not so sure. I have never had the breath and not sure how much to push. ...but I definitely need to change something up a little.

Great job.

YOU ARE SPECIAL

Friday, March 04, 2011

No one can make you feel inferior without your permission."

--Eleanor Roosevelt
Today's Thought

God made us SPECIAL! Growing up overweight, becoming overweight after growing up and just emotional eating your way to being overweight does not mean you are not SPECIAL! emoticon

Fourth Day of another month, what have you done today to move forward in your journey? What have you done this month Period?

Me: I have walked and ran and danced in front of slow moving cars on the highway. I have a heavy chest area so for me to do this is BOLD and DARING but I am BEAUTIFUL NOW!

WE ALL ARE!

ACT LIKE IT! YOU ARE TO REIGN in LIFE as KINGS! emoticon

Blessings!
