His ways

Thursday, October 21, 2010

For the last couple weeks I've felt, lost, out of sorts, blue, just not myself. I kinda figured it was time for my Depo Prevera (birth control) shot and it is, but what I needed was encouragement.
When I woke up this morning I prayed and asked GOD what is it that I need to regain focus, to get beck in sync with my healthy lifestyle? Then I thought well maybe I just need to be reminded of His "Grace that is Sufficient for Me" and then it came.
One of the ladies from my First Place 4 Health online group called me. At first I thought I don't recognize this number, and then I thought I will answer just to see who it was. It was Bonnie-OH and it was such a joy to hear her, although it was our first conversation, I felt loved, cared for, worthy that I was on her heart and GODs.
It is the very thing GOD knew that I needed and I thank Him for His ways of showing me love and caring. So I am ready to begin again to live his way.

    I'm always surprised at the very personal way in which God takes care of me. He's a loving heavenly Father! I'm glad you experienced His loving care in that special way. I have not doubt that it happens often... because that's just the way God is! emoticon

Re: sleep study

Monday, October 18, 2010

My doctor called and said I don't have sleep apnea, but I do have fragmented sleep. So I've been given meds to help me sleep and also an appointment for another sleep study to see if the meds work and also too see if having oxygen helps to have that full sleep mode.
right now I'll go for anything that helps.

  I guess it is good you do not have sleep apnea. There seems to be a sleep apnea epidemic in my city. Three of my friends were diagnosed with it last week.

I never heard of fragmented sleep, but it sounds somewhat less serious. I hope you find a safe and workable solution to your sleep problems soon.

    Sleep is so precious isnt it? I've been dreaming awful dreams lately and waking up tired and upset...I hope they can help you. My issues never lasted long enough for me to ask for help with my problems. I guess that's good & bad! LOL
Sweet dreams! emoticon

Moving along

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I got my first day of Curves done for this week. I was thinking of going this afternoon just so I have something to look forward to, cause I was doing Tuesday and Sunday as my days off but so far that is messing up my weigh ins.
I am feeling down, not myself, I think depression is starting to grab hold of my heart. I just don't feel the happiness and excitement I felt just last week and all I want to do is sleep. I have a diabetes checkup this month so I will have a chance to talk with the Doctor about this.
I will get through this, you all be blessed this week Sparkfriends

    I hope you feel happy again soon. Depression is not a fun place to be or dwell. My hope is, that this is just a short funk you are in, and you will be all smiles and laughter again soon.
HUGS to you.

Not sure what to title this blog so just putting the date.

I am tired of sticking/staying to this weight and this week I want to do something to shake it up. My plans are to go to Curves at least 3 times this week, to walk 30+ minutes 2 days (not curves days) and 1 day of fun with grandson (playing outside).
I want to really get off this carb binge, it is awful. I mean I just crave it and I give in all the time. I need more protein, so I am hoping to get to the store sometime today and get some cheese, nuts and such, and some veggies.
Thats it for now emoticon

    Great goals! I think the key is acting on the one realization at a time and that is what you're doing.

Everything works out the way I plan so I'm just gonna say I am adding exercise and want to eat more fruit and veggies.

BUT! I love Curves and will use my monthly access I have paid for. On a good note I bought some shirts and Curves and have been wearing them cause they are a size 3X yes and proud of that cause I was in a size bigger for awhile.
My neighbor brought me a squash (I call pumpkin squash) and I plan on cooking that sometime today so I am off to do some food prep. You all have a blessed weekend Sparkfamily

    I used to go to Curves all the time and really liked it. Unfortunately due to mismanagement, ours closed down and there went what little exercise I was doing. Keep up the good work!

    I love both squash and pumpkin but find them very hard to cut. So I can only roast them when my dh is here to cut them.
