    Great to stay on track!

And I like that you make a short evaluation of the day - I like to confirm for myself, too,
when I did good.

What a hot day!

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Whoo! Am I glad I got up and got my franny moving early this morning! It was still hot and humid, but nothing like it was later in the day. I had some quiet time with our Lord and then went for a run, came home and shredded with JM, then I jumped on the tramp oline for 15 minutes! I ate clean today . . . although I am low on the calorie side, I should probably have a light snack before bed so I have energy to do it all again tomorrow! Go Daisies!!!

    We were in the mid-to-high 90s today. At least we rarely have much in the way of humidity, but it was hot.

. . . And the Challenge begins!

Saturday, July 16, 2011

Today is the first day of the 5% summer challenge. I feel like I'm off to a good beginning. I did level 3 of the 30 day shred, walked/jogged for 45 minutes, worked in the garden for 1 hour and did 30 minutes of ST. My calories were in the range and I think I ate fairly clean today. I'm working on adding in more protein, it is one area I am constantly lacking. I can eat fruits and veggies all day long, put I struggle to get in the protein. I also drank 11 + 8 oz glasses of water today. I am planning on gong to bed shortly, sleep is another area where I am lacking. I average 5 hrs per night, which could contribute to my no weight loss!

Let's go daisies!! Let's rock this challenge!

    How's about beans? Beans are LIKE vegetables, only packed with protein and - BONUS - fiber!! I'm always trying to get more protein and fiber, and I always forget about beans... I just made a yummy salad of pinto, garbanzo, and black beans, with a little lemon juice, honey, garlic, and basalmic vinegar. YUM!

THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER

Written by Francis Scott Key, 1779 - 1843


Written during the War of 1812,from the deck of a truce ship as Key watched the British attack on the harbor of Baltimore.


O SAY, CAN YOU SEE, BY THE DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT, WHAT SO PROUDLY WE HAILED AT THE TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING, WHOSE BROAD STRIPES AND BRIGHT STARS, THRU THE PERILOUS FIGHT, O'ER THE RAMPARTS WE WATCHED, WERE SO GALLANTLY STREAMING? AND THE ROCKETS' RED GLARE, THE BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR, GAVE PROOF THRU THE NIGHT THAT OUR FLAG WAS STILL THERE. O SAY, DOES THAT STAR-SPANGLED BANNER YET WAVE O'ER THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE?


O THUS BE IT EVER, WHEN FREE MEN SHALL STAND BETWEEN THEIR LOVED HOMES AND THE WAR'S DESOLATION! BLEST WITH VICT'RY AND PEACE, MAY THE HEAV'N-RESCUED LAND PRAISE THE POW'R THAT HATH MADE AND PRESERVED US A NATION! THEN CONQUER WE MUST, WHEN OUR CAUSE IT IS JUST; AND THIS BE OUR MOTTO: "IN GOD IS OUR TRUST!" AND THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER IN TRIUMPH SHALL WAVE O'ER THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE!


HAPPY 4th of JULY!! Celebrate our great nation with pride. And do not forget the blood that was shed by those who bravely fought for the freedoms we enjoy. Thank you to all of the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces. May we always be the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!

    At church Sunday my children's choir sang an arrangement of the pledge of allegiance to open the service and then the congregation sang The Star Spangled Banner acapella. It was so moving that it made the hair stand up on my arms. Thanks for sharing the words - we mostly just know the first verse.

Hope you enjoyed your 4th!

When the Boughs Break

Monday, July 04, 2011

Taken from "Days of Praise"


"When the boughs thereof are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come, and set them on fire: for it is a people of no understanding: therefore he that made them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will shew them no favor." Isaiah 27:11


Like a mighty tree towering over the forest, God raises up a mighty nation from time to time, with a great leader, to accomplish some purpose in the divine plan. He "hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation" (Acts 17:16)

But when that nation and its leaders become proud, and its people become lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, it becomes like a tree whose branches wither and whose core becomes riddled with insect-caused decay. Finally, the boughs brea, the kingdom will fall, and down will come that nation, its leaders and all!

That happened even to God's chose nation, Israel, though only for a time in her case, since God's promises cannot fail. One after another, the mighty nations that God used to chastise His wayword people - Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, Rome, etc. - have in turn been judged for their own rebellion against the God who "made them" and "formed them". God has warned that "the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God" (Psalm 9:17)

Is that about to happen to our beloved USA as well? The signs of self-seeking power and pride amoung our leaders and moral decay and spiritual rebellion among our people are widespread and growing worse. Our prayer should be that of the ancient prophet, "O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, . . . in wrath remember mercy" (Habakkuk 3:2). "Wilt thou not revive us again: That thy people may rejoice in thee?" (Psalm 85:6)

Something to consider and ponder as we celebrate our Nation's birthday today.

May God Bless America!
