Complete Workout (a prayer)

Friday, September 20, 2013

Dear God,

More and more people today are concerned with their physical fitness and good health. But what about our spiritual fitness? I know you made us and you want us to take care of our bodies, but more important is our spiritual health. Paul told Timothy to "Train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and life to come" (1 Timothy 4:7-8).
Please help me to also work on "firming up my faith" in addition to firming up my body, so that I will be pleasing to you and an example to those around me. I want to grow closer and closer to you and would love to bring others along with me. Lord, anoint me.

In Jesus' name I pray,
amen.

  


Feeling happy, positive and proud!

Friday, September 13, 2013

Today my daughter in law ( who lives 850 miles away in Charlotte with her hubby, my son) drove up for a quick visit to us and her folks..when she walked in, and she hasn't seen me since last Christmas...48 pounds ago..she went "Oh NO! Now I have to really downsize that medieval dress I made you for the Renaissance fair!." , and gave me a big hug and said i look fabulous. You can't begin to know how great that was, after 2 surgeries, then a nine day stay in hospital on top of it..I felt way off my game, but that was the very boost I needed! We ALL need "attagirl, or attaboys" now and again...don't forget to give someone some soon!

another day, a new day

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

I know it is going to take time to get back on my legs again after that hospital stay..I am impatient..and my body is reacting strongly to no pain meds ( thankful I no longer need them but the withdrawal is brutal)wondering if tracking these days is worthwhile..yesterday..all i had was a veggie burger on raisin toast..and activity is limited still. Oh I want so badly to return to normal ( if I can remember what that is...lol)..one day at a time..I can at least do that

recovering from hospital

Monday, September 09, 2013

Well, seems the massage chair at planet fitness ruptured some blood vessels in my lower spine, and caused me to develop a large hematoma (size 2 softballs) in my lower abdomen/back. Since I was already on coumadin, i was in some danger, and pain as the like i had never before experienced..that includes joint replacements AND 2 natural childbirths. Nine days inpatient..home now, and as weak as a baby..and going through some serious withdrawal from the meds i was given in hospital. Not cleared to go back to gym..taking it one day at a time. First time ever I can remember forcing myself to eat ZERO appetite. This too shall pass..and I will return and pass where I was!
