Thankfulness

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Yesterday, i went to the gym, as i try to do everyday since joining, and i got on the bike, 30 minutes...elliptical, 5 minutes...then the treadmill...i really had to push myself to do even 20 minutes...of course in my own defense, i have blisters on the back of both my feet, and it HURT!! lol. Later I would find out they were bleeding...nothing like going for blood...lol... anyways, i had to cheer myself on to get back on the bike to do 10 minutes more to make up for the 10 minutes i was short on the treadmill...and then it dawned on me...i get to do this because i can do it...last year i could of only done 30 on either or...not both...and forget the elliptical...uhg...i have come far from the girl i was last year...wohoo me :)

So that is #1 on my thankfulness list.
2 would be a God that watches over me and gave His Son to die for my sins.
3 would be the wonderful parents that he gave me
4 is the great children I have
5 definately would have to be my dear grandson
6 has to be the dear grandchild that will be born in July
and 7 is the wonderful and supporting friends that i have here on SP that cheer me on to victory :)

I could go on...i have a wonderful job, a roof over my head, a running car and food in my belly...air to breath and the ability to get up and go...to see...to hear...to feel... oh and we can't forget that 1 more pound that is gone gone gone...yep, i have a lot to be thankful for :)

Today's verse:
Psalm 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Wow...I did that?!

Monday, January 16, 2012

Went to the gym today...did 5 min on stair master, 5 min on elliptical, 30 on treadmill and 30 on bike...along with 7 ST machines...i barely walked out of the gym...lol...is was more a crawl, limp kinda thing...but i did it...i really did it... last year at this time, i was lucky to do 30 min either treadmill or bike...but definitely not both and then some...was it hard...heck yes...i reasoned with myself, cheered for myself, yelled at myself...the whole way through... and it was worth it...although, i will have to say the best part was coming home and looking at the 15 steps i had to climb after all that...lol...

Today's scripture:
John 12:46
'I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.'

You must do the things you think you cannot do.

And I did :)

Why We Need Sleep

Sunday, January 15, 2012

I know I need sleep...but my grandson didn't think that part was very important...lol. Was up later than the norm because his schedule is different...and then he decided he wanted to be close to me and not in his bed...and then...wanting to play at 2am...hello...playing?? and when i tried to reason with him...he laughed at me...outright laughed...but he is just so stinkin adorable...i couldn't be mad...i played with him and talked with him whenever he wanted...the good news is...i get to go to bed now...while his parents...tehe...don't...

but the reason for this post...i need more sleep because i don't make wise decisions without it...pizza for dinner?? really...what was i thinking? and then not exercising because i was too tired...yea...not a good health day :(

Today's bible verse:
2 Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou has done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

    I have noticed that I am a lot more hungry when I am tired; and not for healthy food. Also, don't feel like exercising when tired. Sleep is a definite must.

    Yes, lack of sleep effects us negatively in just about all aspects of our lives. My sleep deficit card is too full as well JoDee!!

Wow it's been a busy day...cleaning, laundry, get son from friends then to the gym with mom and a trip to the bread outlet...great deals on wheat light bread :) then home again where dd2 dropped of the baby for the night...wohoo...we've been playing and singing and talking up a storm...he sure is an active little guy for not being able to go anywhere yet...lol. He's been fed for the night and i'm one tired girlie...so off to bed with me :)

Today verse:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. - Psalms 23:4

Quote:
The one person who most blocks you from a full, happy,
and successful life is you. They are therefore wise who
make themselves an asset. We can be our own worst enemies
or best friends. We can be a source of trouble or a cure
for trouble. So if you feel empty, as many do, start by
getting free from yourself as a first stop to vibrant living.

From That to This

Friday, January 13, 2012

Yesterday was a beautiful 45 degree day...and i'm not complaining...i mean, for an Ohio winter...this has been very mild...this is only the second snow of the season... i count it a blessing when we are in the middle of January and only 2 snows...but what gets me is that yesterday was that 45 degrees..and today...uhg...roads awful and a balmy 19 degrees this morning...talk about a shift...not a snow flake yesterday to be seen...and then this...


beautiful yes...when i was on the inside looking out...lol. Today looked like a reverse snow globe...i was in the globe and it was snowing on the outside...pretty kewl...until i had to go out in it...yuk...and by the time i got done with all my running and the extra time it took, plus working late to boot...there was no time for the gym again today :( but tomorrow we are hoping to hit it hot and heavy...so for today...a little extra time on the house...and it's soooo needed...so again...i can't really complain... and the overtime is going to come in handy to... so counting it all blessing :)

Today's Verse:
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20

    We got less snow than you did, but it was enough to make it look beautiful - but too soon it becomes grey slush whichis not beautiful. I'm sure I would appreciate snow better if I didn't live in a city. BTW, quote is soooo true!!!

    I love the snow. I don't like it when it is just cold without snowing. That is what we get most of the winter. We are getting more snow than usual this year. I'm not liking that we are looking at 50 below zero this weekend though. Hope yours is warmer and wonderful.
