Wednesday, September 03, 2008


I HAVE DECIDED TO FORGO THE CHALLENGE IN OUR GROUP THIS TIME. I NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON MYSELF MORE. THE JURY DUTY SCARE BOUNCED ME OFF TRACK. I AM A EMOTIONAL EATER AND THAT SUMMONS DID NOT HELP OUT. I REALLY WANT TO GET BACK ON TRACK AND WORK ON FINISHING MY BECK BOOK AND ACTIVITIES. THIS WILL AID ME IN MY BATTLE WITH MR. EE.

SO I HAVE SET MYSELF SOME GOALS TO WORK ON.

1. USE A PIECE OF EXERCISE EQUIPMENT DAILY.

2. READ NEEDED BECK CARDS DAILY.

3. EAT 5 FRUITS/VEGGIES DAILY.

4. READ A CHAPTER OF BECK ON THE WEEKEND.

6. NO AFTER DINNER EATING EXCEPT A SMALL AMOUNT OF PROTEIN (TO AVOID A SUGAR DUMP).

I WILL POST THESE IN MY BECK TEAM.

I WILL SAY A BIG SORRY TO ANNETTE WHO HAS FOLLOWED ME FAITHFUL ON EACH CHALLENGE. I HAVE TO GET BACK IN CONTROL. SO THIS IS DAY 2 OF MY STREAK. WISH ME LUCK OR SAY A PRAYER. I WILL NEED THEM ALL!!!

    Hey Sweetie emoticon

No emoticon needed. This is what life is all about. Making those little or big adjustments as needed to make our life what it should and can be.

If we don't make changes them I would think that we had no motivation or were dead? emoticon

I also have been making changes because of more health concerns so this is good timing.

I'm happy about your new direction you are going and I shall still follow you faithfully... emoticon

Prayers, encouragement and support I give to you my sweet emoticon

LET'S DO IT!!! emoticon

    You can do this, girl. Keep reading those cards, and get in that exercise. The veggies and fruits will be easy if you keep the cards visible!

Keep going - you're doing soooo well, don't let little sidetracks distract you!

Hugs,

COPING WITH MORE THAN ONE ILLNESS

Sunday, August 17, 2008

VERY HELPFUL INFO FOR THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING FROM MORE THAN ONE ILLNESS


Health Tip: Managing a Chronic Illness

8/15/2008 12:00:00 AM

(HealthDay News) -- Managing a chronic illness, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, may seem overwhelming.

Here are helpful suggestions for people with a chronic illness, courtesy of the American Academy of Family Physicians:

* Take a look at your unhealthy behaviors, and choose one or several that you want to work on and improve.
* Come up with a specific plan and goals for dealing with each unhealthy behavior.
* Devise alternate plans to help you stick to your goals -- for example, how to handle weather that affects your exercise plans.
* Make sure your goals are realistic, and that you feel confident that you can reach them.
* Talk to your doctor about your goals, and discuss your progress.


I am working on all these. Dare to dream and over come all these road block in life I do just that with Gods help.

I dare to dream of overcoming Mr. EE (emotional eating) I do that and I work at each and every day.

I have asthma and nearly died with 12 years. God brought me back from the hands of death. Since I have taken Christ was savior those asthma attacks are all but gone.

Diabetes has nothing on me I am a fighter and I will crush it under my feet with each step/exercise I take with Gods help I can do all things.

Hypertension is no match for the power of God. By his wounds I am healed, I can recieve my healing now or I will be healed in heaven. I will take either one whatever his will is for me.

I dare not question Christ for my sufferings. For he said if I suffer for him I shall reign with him. I know and believe he is with me at all times. Even if my faith wavers. emoticon

    I just love how you are doing SO well. I have to get "THE BECK DIET" and read that book. I went to the bookstore, but they just had the "workbook" left and the Hard copy books were sold out. I did look through the workbook and can tell it is very helpful.
I'm still reading "SHRINK YOURSELF" by ROGER GOULD, M.D.

I know we will get there!!!! emoticon

I should have trusted God more!!!!!!

AFTER WEEKS OF STRESSING ABOUT THE JURY DUTY CARD THAT I RECEIVED --I COULD NO LONGER TAKE IT. LAST WEEK I TOLD MY LITTLE ONES DR ABOUT ME GETTING A JURY SUMMONS AND HOW STRESSED IT WAS ALREADY FOR OUT FAMILY ETC. MY LITTLE ONE WHO IS SPECIAL NEEDS. HE HAS MANY GOOD DAYS AND THEN THERE ARE THOSE OTHER DAYS. HUH WHO DOES NOT HAVE BAD DAYS??? I THOUGHT TO MYSELF THEY WOULD EITHER BEAT ME OVER THE HEAD AND DRAG ME IN THERE TO SERVE OR THEY WOULD DISMISS ME.


AT ANY RATE THE DR. IS VERY HELPFUL AND ANYTHING THAT MY LITTLE ONE AND I NEED HE ALWAYS COMES THREW FOR US. HE IS VERY HELPFUL, AND A BLESSING.

MY HEART WAS ABOUT TO JUMP OUT OF MY CHEST BEFORE TALKING TO THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE. BUT I SAID A PRAYER AND WENT AND EXPLAINED OUR CASE. I WAS DISCHARGED FROM SERVICE THIS TIME.

THANK YOU JESUS FOR HEARING MY PRAYERS, AND FORGIVE ME FOR MY FAITH WAVERING.

    Hey girl, Annette is right we all waiver. I did when I kept telling everyone that I was having surgery. Telling my mind that it was a hernia and it ended up being my stomach muscles.

I get out of it because of my illnesses but if I couldn't I would tell the judge that I figured that if they got arrested for the crime then they were guilty. I don't think they would like that. Hee-hee. emoticon

Don't go and beat yourself up over this. All of our faith wavers from time to time but I find that it just makes me strong for the next go round.. emoticon

Have a wonderful week end you and your family. And especially your special little one... emoticon

CHALLENGE JUST ABOUT OVER/DOGGIE KNOWS WHERE HIS HELP COMES FROM

Thursday, August 14, 2008


I FINISHED!! PROBABLY ON THE BOTTOM OF THE OF THE POLE. MY FINISHING ON THE BOTTOM OF THE POLE IS NOT IMPORTANT. WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THAT I FINISHED. AND I PROVED TO MYSELF I COULD DO IT.

THE NEXT FEW DAYS WILL BE A TIME FOR ME TO PREPARE FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE. I WILL REVISIT MY GOALS, UPDATE MY FOOD/EXERCISE JOURNAL. I KEEP ONE ON PAPER ALSO CAUSE I AM A PEN AND PAPER GAL TOO.

I WILL CONTINUE TO WORK ON EE THAT HAS STILL BEEN A TOUGH ONE FOR ME TO OVER COME. BUT I REALIZE THAT WILL TAKE TIME. THESE HABITS WAS NOT LEARNED OVER NIGHT AND THEY WILL NOT UNLEARNED OVER NIGHT.

I AM DOING CALORIE CYCLING NOW. I WAS A BIT CONCERNED WITH THE CALORIES BUT SP CALORIES ARE SIMILAR. MY PROBLEM IS WITH ASTHMA AEROBICS IS JUST A LITTLE CHALLENGING. BUT I WILL NOT QUIT MAY BE I CAN SLOW IT DOWN A BIT AND MODIFY WHERE I NEED TO. STILL LOOKING INTO A BEGINNERS YOGA DVD.

HD ASK ABOUT A BIRTHDAY GIFT I MAY ASK FOR ONE I CAME ACROSS ON THE WEB IT IS CALLED PRAISE MOVES. I DON'T CARE FOR THE NEW AGE SPEECHES. JUST THE MOVES.

IF I HAD POWER OVER MY HIGHER (HUGH JOKES, AND LAUGHTER) SELF --SO TO SPEAK-- I WOULD NOT BE OVER WEIGHT AND I WOULD NOT STRUGGLE WITH EE. POWER COMES FROM GOD WHO HAS GIVEN ME STRENGTH TO LIVE AND MOVE ABOUT. CHRIST IS MY STRENGTH...NOT MYSELF.

    You did GOOD! And you did NOT come in on the bottom ... I've got 3 late posters, but still know that you're not 'last'.
AND the point being that EVERYONE on the challenge who finished did JUST THAT! They FINISHED. Sometimes just completing a task is all one needs to get motivation going!!!

You said that you probably came in at the bottom of the pole. Well good for you!!!! emoticon reason is...YOU CAME IN GIRL FRIEND!!!! emoticon

Now let me tell you something about that pole. The bottom of the pole is the place where all the weight is and it's the strongest because it has to hold everything going on it. It is planted deep done in the foundation and secured in cement. That is you sweetie....The bottom of the pole as you put it....Understand????

You are one amazing your lady. To dare to dream. To dare to reach out and say.."I can do this with God's help"....You my friend...ARE A WINNER!!!!!! And I am so grateful to have gotten to know you here on sparks and to follow you on your quests.... You emoticon butt!!!!!
