So I didn't do my workout earlier and when it came to start I just wanted to lay down! My body felt so tired but it was no reason for that so I read my Status I wrote today and decided that I BELIEVE what I say and that With God ALL things ARE POSSIBLE!
And...I started my Cardio Dance first and once I started was in Heaven. Afterwards I went straight into my lower body strength training. First I did 13 mins on my own then I used 2 of Coach Nicole's videos which I really like. Bootcamp Day 5 Lean Legs and Bootcamp Day 2 Lower body with dumbbells(or without). A Total of 80 minutes and I never like to wait till the last minute but I kept seeing myself in this skirt and blouse I had on earlier. I had put the shirt inside the skirt (I NEVER EVER Do that!) and that excited me.
Now I'm pumped and calm at the same time! When you JUST DO IT pays off! Now...sometimes I need to rest but this was not one of them. I thank God for the STRENGTH to Push Through! Sometimes we have to START and the Strength we need comes as we go.
I pray you ALL are having a GREAT December so far! I'm doing wonderful no matter what and expecting a MARVELOUS end to 2012! I'm EXPECTING 2013 to be even GREATER than this year for me and anyone else EXPECTING!
Don't let the pressure around you get you frustrated. JESUS came and left us HIS PEACE. May you all REST each day KNOWING that GOD is OUR PROTECTOR and we MUST acknowledge that we BELIEVE it and RECEIVE it. Psalms 91 is Perfect to Pray over your family daily.
As I See The Dawning Of The Light
Do I Shrink Back As If Itís Night
Or Do I Run With Perseverance
And Cast Off That Which Is A Hindrance
He Gives Joy Which Is Strength
Increases My Lifeís Length
Lifts Me Up Higher Than Pain
His Love He Freely Rains
Upon My Heart Deep Down Inside
I Take His Word And Safely Hide
For I Know What Makes Me Strong
Iíll Trust Him He Wonít Lead Me Wrong
He Placed All That I Need
Lovingly Inside Of Me
Iím Going On For Thereís No Fear
I Trust My LordÖHeís Always Here
Now To He Whoís Faithful And True
My Love Is Ever Towards You
I Will Not Stumble Or Look Back
You Fully Supply That Which I Lack
In You I Live And Have My Being
With Eyes Of Faith Iíll Keep On Seeing
As You Lead Me In Your Way
I Walk In Victory Every Day
I See The End Before The Beginning
I Never Lose Itís Only Winning
In Christ Iím Seated High
Far Above The Blue Sky
I Will Not Lose HopeÖNever
For You Are With Me Always And Forever!

How was your November? I lost 4 pounds! I haven't taken my measurement for this month yet but I can tell by my clothes that inches are going as well. I'm telling you beautiful male and female, it is a GREAT feeling when you are making progress and so close to a goal you can grab it with your hands.
DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!
With God on our side WE CAN do ANYTHING!!! He Promised NEVER to leave or forsake us and God Does NOT lie! I trust HIM and I know that's why I'm making such tremendous progress this year. HIS timing is always the BEST timing!
Now...WHAT ARE MY GOALS FOR DECEMBER?
1. Lose 8lbs
2. Truly have a full day to REST from working out.
3. Write! Write! and Write some more on my BOOKS!
4. Add more toning routines.
5. PUT UP MY CHRISTMAS...TOMORROW!
6. Get some new clothes that fit!
7. THIS SHOULD BE FIRST BUT TO INCREASE MY TIME TO JUST LISTEN TO GOD!
I'm sure my list will change since I just compiled it this minute lol. I did already know I want to lose 8lbs of course because when I do I will be at my first goal weight. I do have a QUESTION for ANY or ALL who will answer: WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT LOOSE SKIN...BEST STRENGTH MOVES???
I'm also going to blog more often because it helps me. It's wonderful for others to read it but doing this last stretch for this year I need to get things written down in public view because I want to be accountable for what I declare as goals or what I plan to do. That's what I enjoy about SparkPeople!!!
Keep Doing What Works For You! Log Your Food And MEASURE Your Servings!!! That Has Helped Me MORE Than Anything This Year. Log Workouts Also. I Believe More People Have A Problem Logging The Food Than Workouts. I Use To Never Log My Food Because I Didn't Like Searching And Searching For What I Was Eating. I Had To Just Do It For Me. It's Important To SEE The Actual Numbers. I Also Keep A Hard Copy Journal But It Does Not Beat Seeing Where You Might Have Went OFF The Plan.
Thank you all for coming by and Sparking. I appreciate you ALL!!! The Lord has Blessed me with a LOT of NEW Sparkfriends this year and I have the others hanging with me to keep me motivated and I always like to say THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU MY SPARKFRIENDS AND THOSE WHO JUST STOP IN!!! Very Grateful to God for each of you!
Let's AGREE to take this year of 2012 out with such a GLORY ring that People will see our smoke in Australia!!!
Lastly I want to show you a new picture of my grniece born 6/16/12 Mykah. I think this is such a beautiful picture! I praise God for her!!!
Many Blessings Upon Your Efforts To Get Healthy And Stay Strong So You Can Live Long According To God's Promise In Psalms 91:16: "With Long Life Will I SATISFY You And Show You My Salvation." 120 years People! (If Jesus Doesn't Come First!)
I'm so grateful that we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the United States of America! But I make it a purpose of my daily life to Give Thanks DAILY!!!
Thank You Lord for waking me up to begin again and fall in line in areas I might have missed it yesterday!!! So grateful for HIS Mercy and Lovingkindness!!!
I give you thanks Dear Father for EVERY one of my friends who have made this journey a success for me. I could not do it without their love and support. You have put each of them in my life for such a time as this. GRATEFUL!!
Being Thankful should be a part of our being just as BREATHING! Wake up and BE Thankful! I thank my God for TODAY! I give Him ALL The Glory for He has Done GREAT Things! Thank YOU Lord for setting me in my place in the Body of Christ in The United States of America!!! So Grateful for that!!!
I thank Him for filling me with The Holy Spirit and giving me Wisdom in Understanding the Word of God and Believing It when I was just a child. Thank YOU Lord for my family known and unknown! For ALL the Gifts and Talents YOU put in me! So Grateful! You ARE Amazing!!! THANK YOU!!!
I thank you for SparkPeople! in July of this year. What a place to get help in changing your life around in every way!!! Thank you Spark Guy for the Wisdom God gave you to start SparkPeople! I thank You Lord for all 78 pounds I've lost since I've been here, every healthy vice I've acquired, for Loving Fitness so much that I have to MAKE myself REST! Thank YOU Lord that I have a better understanding of how I became overweight and for YOU leading me in the way to go to learn and have wonderful tools I needed to be successful!
This is what I aim to do daily. Take nothing for granted. God IS GOOD! All the time HE IS! Set us in Family's. Gave us LIFE when He didn't have to. That LIFE is JESUS! Thank You Lord for THE NAME!
So much I can say! I AM A BLESSED WOMAN!!! Keep thanking God and Our Savior For The GREAT Things They Have Done. ALL Because of LOVE!!!
