CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T BLOG YESTERDAY.....

Thursday, September 29, 2011

The title says it all....
Spark kinda threw the toys for me last night when I was trying to finish my day with it and as a result didn't get a few things achieved....my blog being one of them.....

Anyways...things are going well....am right on track and the K's are falling off....
I am really enjoying the food I am eating and focused to achieve what i have set out to achieve in the time I have given myself to achieve it....

You are all very sweet with your replies and your love, support and encouragement....
I SO appreciate you all.....

Am off to Byes....
Have a headache again ....have had it since yesterday ....think it is some of the bugs that are going around at present....my daughter is not feeling the greatest either and has been in bed since she got home form work.....

Catch you all tomorrow....

Thankyou all so much....
I appreciate you all journeying with me....

Blessings

    I'm really happy for you that you are back on track and lovin' it. I was wondering what you were up to. The day just seems a little off without your blog. It is such a constant part of my day.

The flu is certainly starting to make the rounds here and many people are dropping like flies. It seemed to come on very fast this year. Normally we start to see it in Nov.Dec. I guess the strange summer weather we had this year is partly to blame. Be sure to bundle up and have lots of fluids and soup. Mom swears by good old soup. emoticon

Have a warm and fuzzy day.

CONFESSION TIME....TIME TO BE HONEST....

Monday, September 26, 2011

Well...the scales are going the wrong way for me at the moment and I know exactly why.....
I guess that is kinda helpful.....
The chocolate and the nibbles that have created this were very much enjoyed however this stops right here....

I am fully back on track today and am feeling good about it....
Haven't been walking since I did the half marathon....did do my house out today which was something in the form of exercise.....
Stuggling with daylight saving which happens most years however chased myself all day today......hopefully tomorrow will be better and I will adjust more to the time change.....
I am planning to get a walk in tomorrow and keep the walking going each day.....

The wheels totally fell of the fast i have been on however restarted again today and am feeling positive and motivated.....
Have set myself a goal to get as close to my goal in 2 weeks as is possible so this will call for a real attitude change and a real focus....
Staying in it for the duration not veering off and getting distracted....

Thats where I am at this week....
Honesty achieves things otherwise I will just continue to fool myself.....

Thanks for reading this....
Blessings...

    Hi Lyn, I;m so sorry I missed this post yesterday, I want you to know I'm with you every step of the way, yes, I can identify with the nibbles and going off track, I did that a few times during summer vacation, I finally had to pull up my boot straps and move on and put it behind me, I'm thrilled to hear you are doing the same, don't be hard on yourself, we've all been there if we are going to be honest, and that's one thing I so appreciate about you, your integrity and being up front about where you're at. You are honest and are facing these challenges and because of that you will be successful, keep on sparking, keep your eyes on the finishing line, I'm standing with you and will continue to cheer you on your journey, thanks for your support and your friendship, I thank God for a friend I have in you, God Bless & Hugs... emoticon emoticon

    We all find ourselves giving in to temptation now and then. I think we, and life, would be too boring were we not occasionally led down the wrong path. The trick is to get back on the right path as soon as possible.

You know the path to take. You just went off on a sightseeing detour for a bit.

    I'm going through much the same thing so I understand what you are feeling right now.

No looking back. You're back on track and that's what counts. You've made a plan and you're committed to following it. I know you're going to get there. emoticon

SUNDAY BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY....

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Well out weather today hasn't been that beautiful....rain, hail and even some snow flurries and of course sunshine....lol....all of it in one day.....lol

It has still been a great day and it is not over yet....we will be off to night Church very soon....the previous pastor and his family arte down this weekend so will be great to see them and hear him preach again...have really missed his sermons.....

Our little flock were great this morning and they are really starting to step up which is really encouraging and we are seeing some of them growing which is awesome.....

I am right into things again tomorrow....will be back walking....well thats as long as the weather is half decent of course.....Have really enjoyed my chill weekend...it has been great although i am not sure I am impressed with the lost sleep last night having put the clocks forward for daylight saving.....it starts really early here now and doesn't end until end of march....it goes now for 6 months of the year....fascinating.....

Well thats been my lot for the day.....
Be back tomorrow....
Have a great Sunday everyone....
Blessings

    Thank you for these encouraging and inspiring posts, it's exciting when we see others growing, it sounds like you are being richly blessed as you and your husband plant seeds in the hearts of the flock, and see them take off and grow in Jesus. I so appreciate your friendship and the many visits you bring to my spark page, you are a delightful gal, Shining for Jesus wherever you go. Keep Sparking on my friend..Yes, it is hard when we lose sleep over daylight savings time, praying your body adjusts, you get rested and not feel so tired. God's Blessings & Hugs... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    HI Lyn!
Just a note to say you are wonderful and so inspiring and sweeet. I had a downer of a day yesterday, and am sure today will be wonderful. I am going for a walk today without a buddy, just because my lack of a buddy yesterday made me spiral down in a total breakdown of my plans and eating. Don't know why especially after starting out so well. So I am going to go and prove I can do it on my own.
Hugs,
Angela

    Sorry to hear you are missing that hour of sleep. Guess it wouldn't do to nod off in church. I can still see my Dad, many years ago, nodding and nodding in church. When we bugged him, he just said he was agreeing with the minister. Didn't believe him then and don't believe him now. Have a great (albeit short day)

A real enjoyable chill day...
