I've joined the 12 Week challenge 10/12-1/4. My goal is to lose 16+pounds within that time.
Things I will do to get there.....
1. Exercise 15+ minutes daily
2. Eat 3+ fruits/veggies daily
3. Drink 6+ cups water daily
As for this past week, my scale says I lost 2 pounds (not 3) and thats ok with me. Any amount helps. Well here I go to start a new habit to live

I've been weighing my self daily and my scale seems to be holding at a 3 pound loss since last Tuesday, but I'll wait till tomorrow to post it. I think I got my portions right, it's just the quality of food thats hard to accomplish, being on a limited $ budget. Water consumption is right on target too. It's just the exercise that I just am unable to be consistant with. I did two days of exercise, one at 20 minutes and another at 15, and I am hoping to get in another 20 today.
My emotional health is on a low right now. I don't know why, but I feel so blah
empty, and uncomplete. Maybe I just need some sleep

I give thanks to GOD for watching over my grandson and keeping him safe....Although my heart felt guilt, because I didn't do what I was supposed to, and that was to keep him safe.
After my son had passed away, I still have feelings that there was more I could have done for him, and I promised GOD I would do my best to care for my grandson. I feel like I've failed.
BUT I've not given up, I will do all that I can to care and keep him safe. That means losing some pounds, because yesterday I was so out of breathe, it felt like I was running. I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, Amen

My 2 year old grandson, WAS missing.
He had gone out the door when we were cooking, and the gate was left open. I thought I should check on him since I didn't see him in the front yard, thats when I saw the gate and just past that his three wheel bike in the middle of the road. I was struck with terror, because behind our house is an irrigation ditch with about 2 feet of water.
I didn't see our 2 dogs so I thought he may have followed them to the ditch and I look there first, (the momma, gramps, and niece) the others went looking in the opposite directions. I also thought he may have followed the dogs to the fields where the horses and cows were (he's been there with gramps) and I went that way too but didn't see him or the dogs.
As I was returning to the house, I went to the neighbors houses and asked if they saw him and they said no. As I was heading down another street, I saw my other niece running and yelled to see if they found him. She said yes. I was so scared still, because I didn't know if he was ok, or if other dogs had attacked him.
But he was ok, and by then there were others to help look for him. I was so grateful for their help.
I also thank GOD for keeping him safe. Please, give your kids and grandkids that extra hug, just because.

My husband finally talked to me and he said he was really disappointed, not mad. And so far things are working out ok with our limited budget for this month.
Tomorrow I will plan my week, for meals, exercise, and my time. Also I really need to get back to attending Sunday church service, because I feel I really need the fellowship of others.
Thank you Sparkfriends, you all are precious, and special to me. Love and Huggs to you all
