Pleasantly, I got up this morning and went on my 3.5mile walk before going for our monthly thanksgiving church service. I came back home with the children and we had a good lunch. Almost right after, I have been reading and trying to make sense of the whole lot of reading that I have to do. I am totally overwhelmed and know that it is only by His grace that I can go on. So my prayer is that my Father helps me to do what I need to do, when I need to do it. I am going to bed right now because my work-day starts at about 5:30am. I am trusting God that I will be able to properly manage my time this week.
It is well. That is all I can say: "It is well with me"
Good night and good morning friends!

I knew if I did not run this morning I won't be able to, so I woke up early, and ran. I came home from my prayer vigil very late but I was able to catch enough sleep before getting up. My classes have started so today has been mainly about reading and cooking for my children. I try to do as much cooking as I can on Saturdays because it is the only day that I have to actually do some REAL cooking. I stock the freezer for the week since our schedule is usually "crazy.." So I ran and on my way back, stopped at the grocery store. I walked back home with my hands occupied with two bags each. Well, that was added strength training.
It has being a great day so far and I am excited about tomorrow being the monthly thanksgiving service in my church. I sure have so much to be thankful for.
Hope your day has been great too.

I had my normal day with all activities. No panic moment, just an average day. I am on my way to a prayer vigil. Took things very easy today. I am eating right and my fruits and vegetable challenge is very much on the right path. I am eating more vegetables.
I am praying for a quiet weekend so i can focus on my readings. The new Term has started and i have to work real hard. Hope you all have a great weekend. Remain blessed!

With the level of tiredness yesterday, it was no surprise that I woke up late and almost got my son late to school. This morning was the latest; I ever woke up in my work-life. It was a mad rush to get us all ready and my son to his first class at 6:45am. Thank God we made it but it got my nerves all shaky all day along. Working with a set of very "active" students did not make me any better, so you can imagine the state I was when I got home this evening.
I zeroed my mind off any exercise and was determined to just crash into bed and get me a good sleep. However, life had other plans for me. At about 5:45pm, I got a call about a check that I had been expecting. The lady told me she wasn't home but the check was ready and I could pick it up at her place, if it was ok. What! This is an opportunity to pay some of my due and overdue bills. So I got up and planned on driving straight to her place. Suddenly I remembered. I was low on gas and I had a long drive tomorrow. Though I was going to pick a check, buying the almost $5/gallon California gas was not what I intended to use the check for.
Here came my A Ha! moment of the day. Why not walk? Ordinarily, I wouldn't have considered it with the way I was feeling, but the thought of accessing the check and relieving me of some pressures from piled up bills was enough to push me forward. So I put on my "war" clothes and off I go.
Surprise number one, I had walked that stretch before but it was one-way. Now I have to make a return trip. Well, my motivator was strong; all I could think about was Check, Check, Check..... So I walked...... 2.8miles to and 2.8miles fro... all in 106minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A total of about 5.7miles. This is the longest that I had ever walked at a stretch. Wonders, real wonders… So here is my thought. Is it right that money was my motivator to walk today? Is it ok to use anything, even money as a motivator to get some physical activities down?
Well, whatever the response is to these questions, one thing that I know, and I know is that I wouldn't have shifted my body from that bed if it hadn't being for the lure of the check. I am happy that the lure of money motivated me today. I will call it double blessing and the over 500 calories burned was the topping on the cake.
Last word, whatever motivates you, just get it done. Move that body and burn some calories.
As in my case, Mo Money, Less Fat!!!!!!
Have a beautiful night rest.

Well, today has being so busy for me. It has being, work, school, tutoring,, grocery shopping, laundry, and now sleep. No physical activity at all. Last night I walked my weekly Tuesday 3.3mile-walk for my Bible study. I still maintain my intention to always do that weekly. However, today was supposed to be my running day but life took over,
Well, I am going to sleep now knowing that, by His grace, tomorrow is another opportunity to get it right. I am dozing off on the keyboard.
Good night friends
