I just started a Bible Study today entitled "Namesake - When God Rewrites Your Story" by Jessica LaGrone. As part of my homework, I have a request for you that can be a lot of fun, if you choose to help me.
Tell me your name and if there is a story behind your name.
Where did your name originate?
Do you know what your name means?
Do you like your name? Why or Why not?
If you don't feel comfortable sharing your real name, you can use your username if you would like OR share a favorite name....
I'll start us off....
My name is Christine. I am sure there is a story behind my name but I don't know it all quite yet. If I recall correctly, I was to be named after my Nanny (grandmother). She went by "Ann" but her real name was "Constantine". My grandmother was Italian and so her Italian friends would call her "Constantine" which my Mom mistook for "Christine" and thus my name. According to a baby book, my name is French, English, and Latin and means "faithful". I am not certain of its origin.
I really like my name because "Christ" is in it just as He is in me. It reminds me how He called me to Himself and called me His own. It reminds me that I am His follower. It reminds me of the intimate relationship I am in with Him and I am blessed because of Him!
Now it is YOUR turn! I would LOVE to hear from you!!! Thanks for helping me out! Hope you have fun with this!!!!!

Today was my weight and measurement day. It wasn't good news today! Once again, because of my bad choices, my weight has gone up (6 pounds!) Almost all my measurements have gone up as well! The good news is I have remained consistent in exercising though the amount was a little lower at Curves this week. I did go Monday - Friday. I also walked with my DH one day for an hour and worked out for 75 minutes doing a "Five Mile Walk Away the Pounds" DVD last night.
The bad news is that I have been indulging foods I wouldn't normally eat far too often! I stopped using my food tracker because I didn't want to face the reality of what I had done but it gave me the ammunition I needed to continue with my bad eating habits. I wasn't planning. I would take two steps forward by eating a salad and then take five steps back indulging in chocolate. I found myself eating too many carbs when I thought I had broken that cycle!!!
I have made up my mind to do something instead of spiraling down further. As of this moment on, I am stopping all Easter candy consumption. I have written a weekly plan returning to a 1200 calorie diet for a week to begin on Monday. I need to come up with a plan for Saturday and Sunday knowing that I will be tempted. I posted my name at Curves committing to lose 3-5 pounds sticking to the diet. I am increasing my protein and have my healthy snacks (almonds, celery with peanut butter) planned.
I am also beginning a new Bible Study on Monday with a group. I have a "Made to Crave " Study in progress that I need to follow through with as well.
I am going to continue exercising daily at Curves. I want to incorporate walking but I have been having a problem with my right heel. When I did the "Five Mile Walk Away the Pounds" DVD last night, I over did it and my heel was in excruciating pain. I was limping the rest of the night. I soaked in Epsom salt bath and rested it all night. I hobbled this morning for a bit. Then, it got better. So, I went grocery shopping walking on and off for about an hour and worked out at Curves for a half an hour after lunch. Now my heel hurts just a little bit but I have rested it. I have been wearing inserts all day, everyday because I have had plantar fasciitis. I have been suffering with this on and off for 8 months - more so the last month or so. It is frustrating. I plan on doing some exercises that may help alleviate it. I also have, as needed used Alieve, Aspercreme......
March was not a good month for my Asthma. It got out of control. Thankfully, my rescue inhaler helped and I didn't have to go to the hospital!! I meet with my allergist next month. Hopefully April will be better!!!
I started writing on a project more yesterday and need to continue today.
Hopefully, with God's help, I will get back on track and this time be more consistent!
