Back in the swing of things

Monday, January 10, 2011

Wow...where to begin,
This past week has been a total nightmare for me in my personal life between my 17 year old leaving home and having what I think was a miscarriage I am just glad to be able to say I made it through alive to be able to start again. God has shown himself strong in all of this, He has been with me and given me peace and I know that one day my daughter will realize that she needs a mom in her life and speak to me once again. I was too strict, I was overprotective, but I only wanted to help her avoid the pain of sin that I had experienced as a child myself. She is in Gods hands now and I trust Him so I have to get up off the couch and dust myself off and keep trying to take care of the one still at home and hope she sees from her sister the mistakes she can avoid. I am eating good now, I will exercise more now and I plan to keep trying to have the baby I have wanted to have for over 10 years even though I am 36, through all of the sorrow I am looking for a blessing and I am hoping this will be the year.

Wow it has been awhile since I blogged

Saturday, July 31, 2010

I cant believe it was so long ago since I was here and how far the wrong direction I have went, my last blog I was about 20 pounds thinner...I weigh 172 this morning so I am 12 pounds up from when I was in it comes on fast, I am ashamed to say that I was up even higher but have lost about 7 pounds as of last week. I am following the Body for life nutrition plan again but not the exercise part of the program, I do my own exercise and it works good. I plan to try to concieve my third child as soon as I get to about 145 so I am gonna need alot of support, nothi ng is impossible and I cannot wait to see results, I will try harder than I ever have to be and stay healthy to make this dream of mine a reality.


Getting my footing back

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Ok so I havent posted a blog in awhile, one reason was my internet being as slow as a turtle and now it isnt (ya) And the other is that even though I was at a good weight for me, my body wasnt getting fed properly and I was starting to slip bak into old habits FAST...BUT as of May 19th after our State recognition days at our weightloss convention I met a man who truly changed my life and attitude about fitness and health all together, his name was Nick Scott and he is a wheelchair bodybuilder who at the age of 17 had a tragic accident that left him paralized from the waist down and was told he would never walk again, with determinatoin and prayer, he is able to use the calve muscles ( he isnt even supposed to have mind you) to stabalize himself enough to walk short distances and is a true hero in my book. After seeing that , I have come home and started the Transformation by Bill Phillips otherwise known as the Body for Life program and here are my results this far...

May 19th was my start date and here are my up to date weight changes and inches lost results

starting weight 161.5
weight today 154
-7 pounds in a month

hips were 41.5
today 39.5
- 2 inches

waist was 37
today 35
-2 inches

and chest was 39
today 38
-1 inch

so 7 pounds and 5 inches is just amazing to me in only one month and I just cannot wait to see how much better it will get by the end of this year!

The Third Day concert!

Monday, March 23, 2009

IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!! I am also inspired to continue on my good eating and exercise habits, I mean I jumped around like I was 13 and I just know by the next concert I will feel even better!
I am also a HUGE Brandon Heath fan now too, if you have never heard of him, check out his song ( Give me your eyes) on utube, it is amazing!

    You are doing so good. Marissa will do good, when she is off of her crutches. I also think she has lost weight. She looks thinner
