Doing it the right way

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

It is a case of my needs versus my wants. I want a new laptop but I can make this one last a bit longer with a new battery and wiping it down to give it that new appearance. I don't need every little gadget that comes along, especially if I am about to begin house buying mode. I had to pull up my big girl panties and just say no, no to squeezing a new Mac book pro on my card, no to pulling up in a fast food drive thru and ordering a cheeseburger, no to french silk pie I am so crazy over and no to giving into every little tempting food thought thinking I will work out more tomorrow.

I said yes to some fruits today, yes to chicken soup, yes to cleaning carpet my precious little poodle soiled, yes to mopping my kitchen floor, yes to organizing my budget for August, yes to contacting my realtor and yes to making copies for my loan application.

There is a sweet reward for me at the end the road, I just have to put out to get out. If I want to move forward, I can't let the sin of procrastination and the worry of failure stop me from achieving that true brass ring emoticon Yes, I am in it to win it and I am going to do it the right way!

  I am, too working on my procrastination attitude and find that I have more time to do other things than putting off the inevitable. If we keep on doing the same things, we'll keep on receiving the same results. Make a change and as Michael Jordan says, Just do it". You're on your way so keep on, keeping on! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Getting it Right

Monday, July 30, 2012

Today was a day of rest for me, allergies acting up. I didn't do my bridge to 10k workout or go to my gym class emoticon. I have to get this right for the long haul of living a healthier lifestyle. I think with my sinuses blowing up, the heat and humidity just took a toll on me. So I rested today, and rested and rested. I feel a bit better as I prepare to head out the door with a game plan. I need to finish up some things and put my plan into action. Pastor spoke yesterday about turning favor onto your famine. I am more than determined to be a victor, not a victim and get my act in forward motion.

As I always tell myself, Jesus is life, the rest is just details and I gotta a lot of living to do! emoticon

God's Plan

Sunday, July 29, 2012

I love it when God gives me a good word, a plan, a blueprint for abundant living. Pastor spoke today about using favor to get rid of our famines in life. The simple word spoke volumes to me as the fog of distress lifted a bit for me to formulate my gameplan. It is all about the execution and how I handle the tests, the trials and tribulations. This I know, God will give me no more than I can bear and He will not forsake me. So I need to get on the good foot, do what I have been directed to do and remember that anxiety is unbelief in disguise. I have strong faith, I have favor from above and I know I can do all things thru Christ who gives me strength. emoticon emoticon emoticon

  I absolutely loved your blog. It not only inspired me, but it fed my heart and soul as well. It happens to be that "little-something" that my ears needed to hear, my eyes needed to see..and the strength that will help me to remember that I can do ALL through CHRIST who strengthened me. emoticon

A Great Start

Saturday, July 28, 2012

I had a great start to my weekend yesterday. I had a scale victory at Weight Watchers and learned at the meeting the importance of varying my salads. I am going to hit up Aldi for some fresh fruits and make a couple new juices I have learned from my new ebook from Kris Carr.

I had a lunch date with a very interesting man. He travels a lot for his job, has a similar background to me (we both went to Catholic schools) and is just overall a nice fellow. I laughed as we talked, very personable and quiet demeanor, it was very refreshing to have grown conversation. I had my favorite cheat meal which I ended up bringing home to finish. i didn't go to my workout yesterday as i should have, so I made it up this morning with a run/walk at Shawnee Mission Park and I plan on going to the gym again tonight to make up my cardio session. I began day one of Bridge to 10k program, taking advantage of the cooler temperatures this morning and low humidity. It was nice to see other runner/walkers/bike riders out and about at the park and I was glad to take advantage of it! emoticon emoticon

Keeping the Faith

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Tonight is my last day of the work week and I must say this has been a week full of challenges. I will forever be grateful for my job, but there are times I wish that I could be doing something less taxing, less stressful. The prayers of my fellow sparkers were well received and I am so thankful for this website that I can use as an outlet to voice my ideas, concerns, opinions and musings on my mind.

I have a nice weekend planned. An outing on both Friday and Saturday and I going to get the ball rolling by sending in my paperwork for my mortgage application. It seems like this preapproval is the real thing and I can move forward through prayer and hope for the best. I know God has a plan in store for me and I truly, truly believe we can have heaven on earth! emoticon
