Let your Yes be Yes

Monday, May 15, 2006

I was very angry today. Yesterday Abi and Lafayette told me they'd get the lawn mowed today (my mother's day gift)...but Abi said she couldn't start the gas mower, and the push kept sticking on twigs, so she gave up...and Lafayette "couldn't get over here". I am so tired of being disappointed, of people near me breaking their word. I'd rather they say "I'll TRY..." not "I WILL" ANyway, I ended up doing the lawn with push mower. But I was steaming, and not just from the calories burned. And I can't help but think of how I had told Ansel and Ben to get an ELECTRIC, but NOOOOOOoo, THIS has "EASY start" I think I'll order an electric online from Sam's Club so I can charge it and get points towards miles...
Anyway, it makes me more determined to be careful what I say, that I make no empty promises and do what I SAY I'll do.

  


Love the Truth

Sunday, May 14, 2006

As believers, we HAVE to love the truth - after all, Jesus IS the Truth!
So part of th ehelp I find in Spark is the calorie tracking, and taking responsibility for recording EVERYTHING, even those 2 Whopper Juniors I had Friday. Truth and accountability help towards the goal of weight loss!

  


How many calories...?

Sunday, May 07, 2006

How many calories do I burn to assemble an excercise bike? Whew! But it's nice, it has features like speed and virtual distance and thumb pulse and water bottle holder and book rack. When Abi and I unpacked it, we didn't find any directions. So we prayed, and ABi went online and got the company, and we were able to download the instructions/owner manual. Had another successful day calorie wise, ALMOST having a bite of ANsel's cold pizza, but then denying myself. Some other time I'll see about making a pizza-wannabe with the part-skim Mozzarella cheese Abi and I got...I hope I can get to 240 by the end of this week!

  


Could have been so much worse

Friday, May 05, 2006

While I went considerably over my max in calories today, the accountability thru Spark has helped to keep it from going so much higher as it would have otherwise. So I am not totally displeased. I WAS prepared to be careful, and did try: it was not so much a matter of caving in as what choices were available at Don Pablo's. And I only ate half of the entree.
Didn't do my standard biking because I worked in the yard, planting some hostas and cutting the grass.Ouch, THERE are some muscle groups that want working out!

  


How Beautiful

Sunday, April 30, 2006

How beautiful is the Body of Christ! Especially when we see beyond our own church's walls. I LOVE my home church, of course, but it is so precious to get toknow other saints and get a broader view of the Body, thru Spark.
