03/16/2013 Saturday - Day Two

Saturday, March 16, 2013

While on SparkPeople yesterday, trying to get as many points as I could for my first day back, I get a call from a person I know that does not have a licence, vehicle, or very many friends at all. He needed a ride into town to get some items that were on sale and some movies from a friend to watch over the weekend. I had to decide if I wanted to just work on what I wanted or help another person out. Because I am a Christian, I decided that I could still work on the SparkPeople program by doing some walking with this person to get my daily steps in. So I helped the friend. I felt I made a good decision. It was nice out yesterday so it was a pleasant outing.


03/13/2013 Friday "I am back"

Friday, March 15, 2013

I have been here before but took a break because my illnesses took a bad turn. I am back and ready to lose weight again.
I made new goals. I want to weigh around 145 pounds. I am 238 right now. Have lost 14 pounds since I was last here, but that surprises me since I had to sit with my legs elevated all the time and hardly any exercises at all. But I will take it.
My weakness is being consistnnt and stick with doing something so I hope that I will be inspired by the people here to stick with it.

Monday, May 16, 2011

Well off to a good start today. Got up around ten.
I have started using an alarm that goes off every 3 hours in order to remind me to do something at that time. It is either eat or take my blood sugar or something like that.
I got all the calls made that I needed to make.
I have two laptops that need fixed but I am at a stalled point on both of them. That's OK, I will get what I need to finish them up.
I used my dehydrator to dry red and green apple slices. I can't eat them without my dentures, but if I add milk to them they soften up enough to eat them. I can also make apple sauce as well but haven't gotten that far yet.
I went shopping to get condiments, spices and other things needed for this diet plan. Eating 5 meals a day, even though they are small is a lot for me. I was too use to one meal a day and that would be in the evening time.
I am still working on quitting smoking as well. I have to suck on candies in order to keep from smoking and it really does work. I was so surprised.
I cleaned up my kitchen and living room.
It is another day in the world I live in. Hopefully what I am doing will bring some good changed.

    Hi msroby, sounds like you are doing great. Keep up the good work. I quit smoking 5 years ago and the money saved is astronomical not to mention the health benefits. We now have 10k saved up to redo our kitchen I say that goes to us quitting smoking. Oh my, you were eating one meal a day. I am so glad you are getting away from that. For one thing that puts your body in starvation mode and it stores all you eat instead of losing weight. secondly that is soooooo bad for diabetics. Keep up the good work dove ya Kitcorps

Where did I go?

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

I don't know what took me away from SP, but I am back. So many things are going on in my life right now.
1. Want to move to town.
2. Leaving the abusive boyfriend when I move.
3. Trying to quit smoking and doing pretty well as I am cutting back each week.
4. Need to lose weight
5. Trying to take my blood sugars 3 x a day.
6. Sorting the house of things to decide what to move with me and what not to.
7. I was doing just one or two things at a time and now have to do all this at the same time, so also trying to organize a day to get everything in.

I am sure I am not the busiest woman on the planet, I get that, but I do have a load on my shoulders because I am disabled and can't stand for very long and can't carry heavy things due to a back injury. I refuse to let Satan take me down, so at my slow pace and doing what I can I move forward.
So on I go to get done what I can and this time not give up.

    One thing at a time, one day at a time. Even though you have many things to deal with at once, you can do this!

Do Your Daily Check List

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Yes, I know I have two blogs on one day, but each seemed equally important to me.
I talked in my previous blog about a check list I have each day, but it may not be the kind of check list that you might think, so I want to tell you about what my check list is like.

It goes something like this:

Lord, look in to my heart and see me, test my heart and see my mind, see if their is any evil in me and remove it . PS 26:2-3

__. Where did I show Love today? __. Instead of Love where did I show Hatred?
__. Where did I show Joy today? __. Instead of Joy where did I show Heartache?
__. Where did I have Peace today? __. Instead of Peace where did I show Feverish Unrest?
__. Where did I have Patience today? __. Instead of Patience where did I show Impatience?__. Where did I have Kindness today? __. Instead of Kindness where did I have Cruelty?
__. Where did I have Goodness today? __. Instead of Goodness where did I have Misery?
__. Where did I have Faithfulness today? __. Instead of Faithfulness where did I have Infidelity?
__. Where did I have Meekness today? __. Instead of Meekness where did I have Arrogance?
__. Where did I have Self-control today? __. Instead of Self-control where did I have Self-confidence?

Dear Lord, Please forgive me for my acts other than that of good and help me to grow and learn from my mistakes. Remind me that all these questions do apply to everyone that came into my life today or should have come into my life had I done what I should have done, but also do not let me forget that I must answer all these questions to include how I feel about myself as well, for if I can not see the errors of my ways, then I could not see the light to you. For if I did not have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness and self-control how would I ever be able to share it with others? What negative things such as hatred, heartache, feverish unrest, impatience, cruelty, infidelity, arrogance and self-confidence did I have today? These are things that if I am any part of it within myself it takes me further from your light and how then could I help another? I couldn't, so please Lord, correct my heart, my mind and my soul today and not only save myself from harm but save others as well, for we can not give what we do not have, but what we do have we will give, so make it be that of which brings us closer to your light.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
