I admit that I most of the time don't get 7 or 6 hours of sleep. I've been a night owl since I was little.....I suffered from asthma and most of my attacks came at night. So after 35 years of suffering..devine intervention rescued me and I have an awesome dr and my main great physicine Christ my asthma is well controlled now. So now life and kids sometimes 7 or 8 hours of sleep is s distant memory. Here go to get help. Now my sons bus come 6:30 5 days a week. We have to get up 5:30. Dr did mention I needed 7 hours of sleep so I am a work in progress.
Today my spark friend was put to rest today and so was a lady in our community. Death is never easy and it is so unnatural for us. I must confess that I usually avoid going to funerals because of the sadness it brings.I'll only go if there is a family member at rest. This lady in our community did not have any health challenges as my friend did...as far as I know. Death came as a surprise to all those involved. Death seems so final and mysterious.
But if you have faith in Christ as my friend did there is hope eternally. Christ said let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God also believe in me. In my fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you, And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am ye will be also. So Death is not the end in Christ. Although both these families and the friends of there families are saddened. I know there is comfort in knowing death does not have the last say, So I will be faithful with whatever God gives me to do and that includes reaching my weight goal. I want to hear him say well done thou good and faith servant.
WELL ONE OF THESE SYMPTOMS DON'T AFFECT ME. .I'LL LET YOU FIGURE THAT ONE OUT
I JUST JOINED A TEAM CALLED THE STRESS BUSTING CHALLENGE. I WILL SHARE MY STRESS BUSTING IDEAS.
1. MORE ME TIME IE..PEDICURES, FACIALS PLACING TEA BUS OVER STRESSED AND TIRED EYES. CUCUMBERS ARE KNOWN FOR REDUCING EYE PUFFINESS AND IT IS REFRESHING OVER THE EYE. YEP I'VE TRIED IT.
2. MINI BREAKS OF PILATES IN 10 MIN SESSIONS, DEEP BREATHING.
3. DEVOTIONAL BREAKS... PRAYER WORKS. I CAN ALWAYS TELL GOD ABOUT MY TROUBLES. TRUST AND DEPEND ON HIM FOR EVERYTHING.
4. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT I START A STRESS JOURNAL AND I HAVE BUT IT IS IN MY PERSONAL JOURNAL IN MY DIET BOOK. SOMETHINGS CAN NOT BE SAID...THEN SOME CAN. FOR THE ONES THAT CAN I'LL JOURNAL ABOUT THEM AND FOR THE OTHERS I PRIVATE JOURNAL THEM.
A BIG THANKS FOR ALL THOSE WHO SUPPORTED ME WHILE I WAITING ON THOSE CRAZY TEST. THINGS ARE GREAT A1C 6.1 NOW I AM GETTING MY PRAISE ON!!!
HAIR HAPPENINGS: I DECIDED TO FINALLY SNIP OFF ALL MY PERMED HAIR. ALL I HAVE IS NATURAL HAIR (MEANING NO CHEMICALS) I AM STEAL LEARNING ABOUT MY HAIR. AFTER 20 YEARS OF PERMS THINGS ARE STILL NEW. BUT I AM LOVING IT. YOUTUBE IS MY GUIDE ALONG WITH MY SISTER. MY HAIR IS REALLY GROWING.
EATING HAPPENINGS WELL THIS SAYS IT ALL...I AM STILL WORKING ON THAT. I'VE DECIDED TO HAVE OATMEAL 3 X A WK AND AT LEAST 7.5 CUPS OF WATER AND 2 TO 3 FRUITS AND 4 TO 5 VEGGIES. HEY THE WATER PART IS A START. FOR ME TO DRINK 13 OR 20 CUPS. THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN. .
EXERCISE HAPPENINGS HUMMMM OLE GRACE BEEN OUT OF FOR SOME TIME. LACKING IN ENERGY. SO I WILL INCREASE EXERCISE AS I CAN. I NEED TO START SMALL WITH 20-30 MIN CARDIO, AND 2 DAYS OF STRENGTHENING PRAYERS ON THE STRENGTHENING PART .
EMOTIONAL/SPIRIT HAPPENINGS I REALLY NEED TO DIVE IN THE WORD MORE AND NOT ALWAYS STUFF NEGATIVE FEELINGS DOWN WITH FOOD. THIS IS A JOURNEY AND I HAVE SINCE THE 6 GRADE AN EMOTIONAL EATER BUT NOT QUITE AS BAD AS NOW. I HAVE TO LEARN TO GIVE MY CARES TO GOD. I KNOW HE CARES FOR ME. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN THAT GOD CAN'T HANDLE.
I HAVE STARTED TO FINALLY RESTART CROCHETING AGAIN. I HEARD IT RELIVES STRESS. I'VE MADE SOME JEWELRY AND 2 ROPE SCARFS. IT WILL COME IN HANDY WHEN SCHOOL LETS OUT SOON .
NO THIS BEAUTIFUL LADY IS NOT ME BUT SOMEONE I CAME ACROSS ON GOOGLE AND THOUGHT SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL.
I really need to change things up. So that is what I am doing. Staying where there is nothing happening does not make sense. So I am planning for a change.
I am working some grafts, and charts cause I am very visual. I like seeing how I am doing.
Nutrition at least 2 fruits and veggies. Fresh is best but I will use what I have on hand and make the best of it. . My hubbie vowed to get a garden started, I will hold him to it.
Water some of my friends know how I feel about water so I'll start out with 5 glasses use fruit slices or sugar free mixes to help with taste.
Exercise I will revamp and start out slow since I am slumping some what. Pilates and biking, circuit training. OH NO did I say strengthening? Yep gotta do it. start out with 6 and go from there. Aerobics will do 20 minutes and do 15 when I am rushed. I gotta remember sometime not to compare myself to anyone. Each journey is a journey slow or fast. As long as I am going forward. It does not matter if the is slow. Even when crawling you still moving. I may go walking to our local college since it is the summer and warmer. I love walking but I can not walk outside. So many allergies no way am I waking up that monster. Go I'll do what works for me.
Personal---I natural hair is coming along just fine. I got so tired of the perm that was in it I cut it myself. Now I am all natural. I am loving my hair.
Spirit-- I need to stay with God at all times. I realize that emotional eating has a lot to do with the spirit also. I am carrying my cares to God. I will have some devotional time. This is important to go forward. I am currently revisiting Beck.
