DAY 17 & LENT 1

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

It's day 17 of my personal challenge & day 1 of Lent challenge.

Just a little short my calories for the day & I did my 90 minutes of fitness. YEAH ME

I decided to pamper myself & I went & got my nails done. I just feel so feminine when they are done. I also started experimenting with some new hair dos. Alot of ppl r wondering what I'm up to & I was even told today that I look younger

I went to Ash Wednesday Service this evening and its got me doing some reflecting & I m realizing this change in me isnt just on the outside it's on the inside. I m a different person now then I was a yr & half ago when I started this journey/

    You are doing great! I have never actually got my nails done. In high school I would put on fake nails but I am just way too something because they tended to come off quickly.

    Glad you were able to pamper yourself! I sometimes forget to reward myself for all of my efforts, but it is so important! Have a great day!

    I personally like you with bangs. You look good that way. And the reason you seem to look younger? Look at the picture of yourself in this blog. There is a new confidence there - like you know a great secret that no one else knpws.

DAY 16

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Met my fitness minutes & I almost met my calories and that was with eating corn chips (my weakness).
Didn't do my volunteer work today due to more snow & church council was rescheduled till next Tuesday.
I will spend tomorrow running around getting the paperwork together to apply for the assistance to get our heater fixed & the house weatherized. Then tomroow night is our Ash Wednesday service I volunteered to help with.

I've decided that for Lent I will give up my negative self-talk. I will say 1 nice thing to myself everyday of Lent.

    Great thing to give up!! What a fantastic idea!!! Lent's already started, and I still haven't figured out what I'm giving up.

    With everything I have read being thrown at you lately Marcia, you are an inspiration for not just giving up.

I love the idea of saying 1 nice thing to yourself everyday of Lent. I am not really a religious person, but I think I will borrow the idea for my every day routine and not just during Lent.

Keep warm and keep inspiring us all to not quit.

DAY 15

Monday, February 15, 2010

Did my 90 minutes of cardio but still not meeting my calories. I just don't want to eat -everything just turns my stomach. Maybe it's all the stress of having to deal with everything on my own with no help.

I m so frustrated & short tempered lately. So I started rearranging our so called family-room to just have something to do and not think.

Tomorrow I start volunteering again, maybe that will help me. I have 2 classes Faith Development & Violence Prevention @ the high school then the reading afterschool program @ the elementary school.
And thanks b to God after being home from school for a wk and a half La is finally going back in the morning.

Ash Wednesday is this week and even though as a Lutheran we are not really encouraged to give something up for Lent I always do. I have 2 days to figure out what it will b and I will be refocusing on my Bible readings. I just realized this is gonna b a busy wk. Tomorrow night is church council, then the service on Wed & Friday nights for everyone starts back @ the church this wk. Afterschool is Tues & Thurs; so I guess it was a good thing that I did go food shopping today.

    Busy is better! ?So glad you're getting out and about again and not trapped by blizzards! You'll probably find that by being busy, you'll want to eat your cals, as you'll need the energy.
Cheers to a busy week!

DAY 14 - half way point

Sunday, February 14, 2010

Well we are half way thru February. Tomorrow I would add a new pic. I'm not doing as well as I wanted to but at least I m still moving forward.

Today was my day off from cardio but I did the wii anyway just cause I did so bad last wk with not mtg my goals. With all this snow and more expected I'm gonna have to figure another way to get my cardio in until I can start riding my bike again - I DO REALLY MISS CURVES.

I'm having trouble mtg my calories just too cold to eat.

Tomorrow me and La are having a girls day out so prayerfully it's not to cold.

DAY 13

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Again today I ate under my calories & met my fitness minutes. I did not meet my calorie burn for the week. But tomorrow starts another wk & I'm refocusing.

I was blessed today to be able to go & visit my hubby I was setting up my visit for next Sat. & they said I could visit tonight so I did Thanks b to God, Lord knows that I needed it. I feel like the stress has just melted away.

I was sitting here a little while ago typing up my report for our congregational meeting. I serve as Vice President of council (president is the Pastor) I decided to use 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 as my inspiration. As the words seemed to be just typing themselves I had a DUH moment. I realized that I need to practice what I preach. I dont understand why it is so hard for me but I really need to follow my own advice. God will see me thru this just as he has seen me thru everything in my life. As I m sitting here feeling abandoned & alone I need to remember that God is not just holding my hand but he is surrounding me with his love and as I feel the most alone that is when he is here the most.

Thank those of you especially my Zen Girls for all of your love & support

    I am glad today is going better for you. It's amazing what God has us to go through and then for us to realize we knew that all along. He's always there to help us through those hard times. emoticon

    That's what we're here for!! So glad you got to see your hubby. God must have wanted you to use that verse for a reason; He's telling you something! Just listen to Him! Have a great Valentine's Day!
