I just took a look at Subways website for the first time today. It is really cool. You can build your own sandwich, how you want it, on line and the calories and stats will change the nutrition information for however you build your sandwich. That's really cool. You can add and take off things to make the food fit within your goals. The information changes for everything you add or take off. I got one ready for Paul to pick up for me at lunch today with lots of veggies and under 500 calories. Since it is the only thing I am having for lunch today I splurged and added provolone cheese, otherwise the same sandwich would be under 400 calories. I think that is a really cool idea to let your customers know exactly what they will be getting nutritionally. KUDOS to Subway!
I hope everyone is having a great day today. I got up at 4:15 and made breakfast for my hubby, pancakes, eggs, and Organic maple syrup. It was a yummy breakfast. I am not always able to get up and do that since he gets up at 5am so I am happy I could do that today. I feel better when he eats breakfast, since he usually wont unless I make something.
Our meeting is tonight, so I will prob have to take a nap after lunch today. I woke up so early, I know I will be tired by tonight. I am glad we always study at least a day ahead of time, sometimes sooner. It make meeting day less stressful, if we are already prepared.
Well, sending my love to everyone. Hope you have a wonderful day. Love Joyce

Hi everyone, I found a new fav snack. I tried those Emerald Cocoa Roasted Almonds. Just enough cocoa to kill the need for chocolate. It is made with dark chocolate so it has the antioxidents and good potassium and protein. One ounce gives you 6 protein 3 dietary fiber and 1 sugar. Plus 210 potassium and only 25 sodium. Of coarse it has 13 g of fat but it is the healthy kind and only 150 calories. It is a lot better than eating candy bars ! I put my ounce in a little cup on my desk and just much one at a time. I am craving other things (more harmful) less and they taste really good.
I managed to do my 10 min this am and am gonna try for another 10 min before lunch. Today we are having Lean sirloin burger (homemade) and salad (heavy on the cucumber).
I am still having a lot of pain, but I don't want it to keep me in bed all day. I got up at 6 am and had breakfast by 7:30. I drank my tea with agave nectar and took my am vitamins. I am gonna listen to some magazines for service this afternoon and paint for awhile. I really need to get the vineyard done. It is supposed to be a belated wedding present. So I need to get cracking on it.
I almost cracked last night cause It was so late getting home from the meeting and I was so tired. We almost broke down and went to KFC (NOOOOOO!!!) Ha ha ha. I came to my senses half way there and said NO, we need to go to the store and buy some lean meat and stuff for salad and cook. So we dragged our tired selves to the store and ended up making home made burrito wraps. It was very good. Today we are having our salad and meat. So I am very proud of myself for sticking to my guns and not eating the bad stuff! I am slowly munching on an ounce of my almonds while I log and blog. In a while I will do another 10 min workout and fix the salad for our lunch.
I am trying to change my thinking (little by little) and am celebrating the little victories I make. I have been having a new thought in my head lately as I shop. It was something I read in an article about eating. It was "if you are not hungry enough to eat an apple, then you really aren't hungry". I have been keeping that thought in my head as I shop, and I find I am making better choices. I have been staying away from most processed foods and shopping for my fruits and veggies first. What ever is left goes for some lean meat and milk, etc. So I feel that I have been making some progress in important areas of my life.
Right now we have no cookies, cakes, chips or other junk in our house, and I am very proud of that. Little victories!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. Sending my love to all! Joyce

I was able to get up at 7:30 and do a 10 minute workout. I logged my food I am eating now. According to my Just Dance 3 I walked across Central Park. :)
I am gonna get ready for service (gonna make calls) and then lunch, study, meeting in that order.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day. I am glad to be up and moving. I am still having pain but I took some heavy duty pain med last night and it eased the pain a little. I was feeling quite sick to my stomach after the med so I had a snack and went to bed. Still woke up a lot but I do feel better overall today.
Love to All! Joyce

Well got up today for service but my back decided not to cooperate. I could not stand upright. I don't know if it is the rain, weather change, or the workout I did yesterday, but my left hip and back are so bad right now I can hardly stand up. I really hate these days. It could also be the fibromalygia acting up. I wish I knew what causes this. I will be most glad after armegeddon when all our pain is taken away! I would not care what job I had to do if I was not in such pain.
My hubby had to go meet for service without me, but he is coming back at noon to see if he can help me get ready to at least go out this afternoon and make some calls. I am gonna go lay back down and rest for a couple more hours and hope the pain subsides enough for me to do that. I was crying since I really wanted to go today. There are a few other things I wanted to do today too, but when this happens I can hardly make it to the bathroom.
I have learned to take each day for what it is. I cry with dissappointment on occassion but know that Jehovah and His Son are working hard to make things better for us. I always remember that we suffer for a reason and that the most important thing is for Jehovah's name to be sanctified and his soverignty to be vindicated. Our suffering is because of his enemy and I am so glad to understand the issues. I really hate to hear people blame Jehovah God for the suffering. I will be glad when the ones who oppose him are gone. I am grateful that he sustains me in time of need and helps me to maintain my integrity in the face of everything.
I hope all of you are having a good day. At least I started the day with prayer and a healthy breakfast. I found the Kashi Cinnamon Harvest cereal. I had it for the first time this am and it is pretty good. I like the ingredient list which I am able to read the few ingredients LOL! I have been watching lables alot more and trying as much as possible to avoid processed foods. I am learning and growing in that way. I can't wait to check out the farmers market that is starting in May to get some stuff straight from the farmers!
Love to you all, gonna go rest up and see if I can make it out this afternoon. If at first you don't succeed....try...try...again! At least I am not feeling too bad emotionally today! Love, love, love, you all! Joyce
