I Know Where Saturday's Gentle Push Came From

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I got on the scale this morning and I've gained 6 lbs.! emoticon

As I'm a firm believer that God is a God of 2nd chances, He's given me another month to get it together and get it right! I have my gym membership and a new determination to lose this weight once and for all!

I've joined the Spring to Summer 5% Challenge and know that if I will make the intial start, He'll meet me the rest of the way. Looking forward to my journey and losing 5% of my current weght over the next 10 weeks!

God is a little scary at times but still oh so good!

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Had to work today ( emoticon) but I'm not complaining because I'm grateful that I'm employed and have the opportunity to work overtime. Was sitting at my desk having a conversation with God and telling Him that I really need to get serious about getting more active to get my weight down and take better care of His temple in which He dwells. As if on cue, my friend-girl gives me a call and tells me about a special that's going on at the gym across the street from my job and the options for signing up, with tomorrow being the last day for the special that she got ($30 down, $9.95 month, $25 year for maintenance fee = $14.53 when you average it out).

Satan be on his job as well and the thought came to mind "do you have the $30 for the downpayment?" God let me know that the gym was from Him and for me to do because another friend-girl texted to say she had some money she owed me and wanted to bring it to me. Ain't God good?

My next thought after she texted me was "I hear You Lord and will go to the gym tomorrow after church and get a membership". After conversations with God like that, I can't help but achieve my next weight loss goal, which is 17.6 lbs by my birthday, July 13.

So enjoying this journey that I'm on with God!

    Hi! I'm Becky. I'm new to the allergy team, I love your blog on this. God has been speaking to me for quite a while and that other idiot too. Too often I find myself taking the other idiot's advice. Definitely hear him screaming now that I reset myself back to stage 1 on here.

Going to start the c25k program Monday. I would love to start today but this weekend is packed. If tomorrow works better I'll get that going. Got that app on my phone and I'm gonna get started. Sunday or Monday.

I love that you're a Cancer too. My birthday is July 9. I'll be 41. I am here if you ever need anyone. I'm not on a lot but am going to be if I'm gonna do this journey right finally.

Great job of getting the "nod" from our Father. I want to know your thoughts on the gym.

Take care,
Becky emoticon emoticon

New Month, New Opportunities

Friday, February 01, 2013

There's a song that I like that says "sometimes you have to encourage yourself. As it's a new month and with it comes new opportunities, I have another chance to get it right. My goal this month is to lose 7.3 lbs. I now realize that I have to incorporate some form of exercise in to my plan to see the results that I want. I also have to drink my water, which for some reason has been a challenge for me lately.

This morning I got off to a good start. I got in a 15 minute workout before I left for work today and will get another 15 minutes of exercise in before the end of the day. I will also implement walking up and down one flight of stairs each time a walk the floor on my to the rest room. Al this is to improve my physical being.

For my financial wellbeing, I'm implementing a No Buy Month this month to get another perspective on my spending. I'm not trying to be rich, just want to live comfortably. There's a lot I want to accomplish during the first quarter of 2013 and I feel that I'm off on the right track!

    I too am stepping up my exercise..And a long time ago I found out when I'm shopping even for groceries to ask myself "Is it a want or a need"..and if not a need I usually wait on purchasing..found I saved a bunch this way..Good luck on your endeavors.

Disappointed but not defeated

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I'm a little disappointed that my weight is not where I wanted it to be today. However, I'm not defeated as I realize that there are a few more changes that I need to make on my part to get where I want to be. emoticon

On Monday my doctor's office called to say that my cholesterol was high (222) and that they wanted me to start taking Lipitor, 10 mg a day. I don't want to take Lipitor because of all the known side effects. Back in 2008 my cholesterol was 223 and by the time it was checked again in 2009 it was down to 209, without medication. If I did it before I know that I can do it again. I will give myself 6 months to get it down again on my own without medication. If it hasn't dropped at least 10 points by then I will consider taking the medication. emoticon

My goal hasn't changed as I'm still determined to lose 15 lbs by March 31, 2013. I just have to step my game up during February and March to reach it.
