It's Monday. Today isn't what I had planned, but life is not about my plan. I can plan, but it is the Lord who directs my path. And If He sees a purpose in slowing me down with this cold, I'd better be still and listen to what He has to say. Tomorrow is a new day. There was nothing urgent for me to do, nothing that won't wait until I'm feeling better.
I felt a cold coming on yesterday. Today, it has hit full force, giving me an achy body, sore throat, stuffy nose, and a head that weighs 100 lbs!! Not much sparking for me today and I don't think I'll be moving much either. Resting up today so I can be ready for tomorrow. Happy Mother's day to all my spark mommies!!!
I had a bit of a shock this morning. I stepped on the scales to weigh myself for the Spring 5% challenge that begins today, and . . . . YIKES!!!!! What happened this week? I was up 7 lbs!!!! Where did that come from? Hmmmm . . . the suger cookies that I made this week? The flavored wine that I have had a couple of nights? The "little" taste test of food as I prepared it? The venti frappicino that hubby brought to me yesterday? The crackers and pretzals that I have had a craving for? It all adds up, doesn't it? I should not be surprised. Instead of being discouraged, I think I will take this as a kick in the pants to get me on the right track as I begin the challenge today!
I'm up and moving today. I've had my quiet hour and I've exercised too. I'm preparing to go to church with my family. After that, we'll do brunch and then I'm off to relax, read and take a nap!!! LOL!!! Love nap time on Sundays!! I'll be making some pizza for dinner tonight. Not sure if I will partake or not. I might just have a salad. I seem to crave those more than pizza! I hope each of you have a relaxing Sunday too! It is a great day to recharge our batteries and prepare for the coming week! I ready to make it a great 2nd week of the 5% challenge!! Go Daisies!
Well, this was not the way the week was to go! I had great intentions and I was off and running with the new 5% challenge. What I didn't count on was a major breakdown in the phone cable leaving me without internet since Monday! I was set to post and read blogs, as well as eat clean and exercise. Since I couldn't get on line, I wasn't blogging or posting. I did good on eating and exercising Monday and Tuesday. But on Wednesday, all of those snackie things were calling my name and I listened to them!!! Oh well, I guess it was what God had planned for me as far as not being on line (not the snack food! ) I did get a lot accomplished this week, and I really didn't do that poorly regarding food and exercise. I did miss all of you my spark friends! So, today I'm jumping in and trying to catch up my trackers and e-mails! (do you have any idea how many e-mail one can get in 5 days!!!
