Time Flies

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

today I have taken a moment to look back on old blogs and I cant believe some were written 2 years ago. Where does the time ago. Luckily my weight has stayed about the same. At the same time I am frustrated I have not lost weight either. Time keeps on turning on bite at a time. I need to think about those bites I choose.
Reflection is good and motivation to do better is always a bite away. Today right now I will focus on the right bite and have another drink of water.

    Water can't hurt! LOL

Remember, though, each day is a new beginning. Don't let the past control your future. If you don't like something in your life, you can change it, probably one little bite at a time.

Best to you!

    Making choices is always a challenge, making small changes can make a BIG difference over time. What one small change might you make now to prevent looking back in 2-3 years and seeing your weight the same as it is now? Just start with ONE or two things and turn them into habits. You will see a change if you do even one small change.

Tearing it down

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I am excited about tearing down an old porch from our house. Funny thing is I have wanted it down for 24yrs it has a floor that sloops downward so strange.
Now that it is really going to happen I have a sadness about it being gone.
I have a porch swing on it that my Dad made. I have special shortlegged chairs my dad made especially for this silly porch. I have fed many cats on this porch and birthed a few on it too. My children and grandchildren have jumped, colored, played games and had lots of fun on this crazy made porch.
The last thing I have spent many hours of prayer and bible study on this porch. So why am I so sad this old familiar porch defect and all is going to be destroyed.
Sometimes it is just so hard to let go of stuff. Junk food is my point. It is not good for you, there are much better snack choices that are really tasty.
Breaking up with the familiar is hard to do but in the long run it will be worth it.

    It isn't the porch but the memories - you will have those forever. It is hard to let things go but I am sure you will make new memories on the new porch. Isn't this such the way of life? It is always bittersweet. Hang in there.

Waiting for 4:00pm

Friday, April 05, 2013

Somedays it seems I am always waiting on a clock. At 8:00 time for work, 12:00 time for lunch 4:00 time for exercise and 6:00 time for dinner 10:00 time for bed. Not sure life is really suppose to happen this way. The Clock seems to guide my life and my eating habits. Thinking about letting my stomach tell me when it is hungry is an unorganized way of thinking about meal time.
I would like to take a look at this approach but not sure how to do it. Where would you begin. Honey I am not hungry so you will need to cook for yourself. It could be possible maybe I could have leftovers more often for the husband. Would a person get to hunger and then extremely overeat because they were famished. I would love to see some feed back on this issue of eating when you are hungry and not when the clock says you should. emoticon

    Wow, your life seems very structured. Well, I guess most people eat at a certain time just for convenience sake. I don't like to get to hunger before I eat because then I start feeling shakey and weak. I think there is nothing wrong with the way you are doing things - as long as you aren't overeating at your meals.

Today is a new day

Monday, March 25, 2013

After watching the Bible last night on the History channel I am feeling a new energy in my life. Just visualizing how much Jesus suffered for me to be with him helps me do some reflecting on my priorities.
Having a burning desire to tell others of the gifts he has blessed us with and waiting for good opportunities.

Showing more kindness to those I work with everyday.

Generosity also helps me better understand what I really need or don't need.

Now to self control, a fruit of the spirit how I pray the lord with produce this in me today.
Yes, today is a new day and self control is my new opportunity to shine for the Lord

Self control

Friday, March 22, 2013

Today I am working on my thoughts. Keeping positive thoughts in mind about relationships can be very hard. I have been letting people who I love and want to be close to steal my joy.
For some reason I want to turn to food for comfort. I in general love people, I have compassion on those who have hurt or used me and I am forgiving letting unkind words go unnoticed and just move on. And then when someone comes into your life and can use this against you it is really shocking.
Some times those you love get involved with these types of people and bring them into their own controlling web.
Well the bottom line of all this jibber jabber is a lot of the time I must let go. Let go of that relationship I once had and the relationships I thought I could have had and see what God has planned in my life. I believe life does not just happen there are reasons for the the mountain top experiences and the low times in life and learning how to cope is another lesson learned.
What does food have to do with it. Well my ideas is that I find comfort in eating but this also is craziness because food does not give comfort. Jesus and people can only give comfort. Look to the Lord and caring friends and that is where you will find comfort. emoticon

    I have heard, and often repeated, that like at the Last Supper, one out of twelve people can't be trusted. It seems that at times in our lives, we run into a lot of those "ones." But that also means that the vast majority of people are very good and trustworthy. I struggle with eating too much, too. Just keep doing the best you can.

  Sometimes people, family members or friends, really do want to steal our joy.
Seems like miserable folks often want all of us to be miserable along with them...
Well----- Don't let that happen. Find joy in God's blessings, and choose to be happy!
