June Goals

--I plan to lose ten pounds in June.
---I will drink eight glasses of water.
---I will allow myself, one cheat day, eating properly the rest of the time.
---I will meditate and read the Bible daily.

I will comment on whether or not, I reach my goals, on July 8, the day before my thirtieth Birthday.

    Those are awesome goals!

The ladies bible study that I attended this past Wednesday was talking about just that.
Your yes be yes, and your no be no. And also, sometimes we say yes to too many things and really don't pray about them. And so as a result, we don't meet our goals because we have let other things crowd them out.

I remember years ago when someone at church asked me if I would do something, I really didn't have the time and they saw my hesitation. So she said if you can't do it, the Lord has someone else in mind.

You will never know what a relief it was when she told me that. So now when someone asks me if I can but I really can't, I just tell them I am sorry but it will not work out for me now. Maybe another time.

But everyone needs goals in their lives. It stretches us, it helps us grow, and we finally get to see what we are really made on the inside.

YOU can do it, one day at a time. emoticon emoticon emoticon and stay focused!

Frilly Friday!

Friday, June 07, 2013

Hello, SparkNation! It has been a busy, but good week. I didn't get the job, but I know that God has my back! I completed Phase 2, Week 1 of SBD and it hasn't been too tough. Thank you to all my friends for your support!

The birthday party was so fun! I rapped, danced and sang at Karaoke. It was a fun Saturday night! I may be traveling soon to Nigeria. Here's hoping I stay on plan!

Starting the second leg of the South Beach Diet!

Friday, May 31, 2013

I completed Phase 1, today. I also had a job interview, today. The interview, went well. I will find out, on Monday afternoon, if I'll be invited to showcase my teaching skills. I should know, by the end of next week, if the job belongs to me!

Phase 1, wasn't too tough. Instead of going to the movies, I decided to reward myself, with two books. One is a romance novel. The other book is about weight loss. I can't wait, till the books arrive!

I am going to a friend's Birthday shin-dig. I also plan to go clothes shopping. I need interview/work clothes. See you in two weeks!

    Sounds like you have a lot going on! I will keep you in prayer that the interview rewards you with a job!

I love books too! But I generally do cookbooks! LOL! That's why I am on the Beach!
I also read Christian books, but ones that have to do with reality. Like Joyce Meyer or people's life experiences. And then sometimes I read a biography book from the library. (I really should get back to doing that again!)

So what is the book about the weight loss?

Have a great time at the birthday shin-dig and hope you don't stay away too long!

Starting South Beach Diet

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Like the title says, I am starting the South Beach Diet! Today is Day 1, Phase 1! I woke up late, today, but I will get in all of my meals, no matter what. The South Beach Diet works well, but Phase 1 is brutal. I just need to remind myself, that it's only for two weeks, and that I have a great treat at the end. I will be rewarding myself, with a trip to the movies! I am going to go see "The Great Gatsby" on June 1, the day after Phase 1 ends. I am determined to lose this weight, as it's weighing me down.

Thanks, in advance, for your support!
