Since joining the gym and making a recommitment to myself, things have gotten a little hectic...to say the least..it's not that anything has really "changed" but as many of you know, I tend to be a little on the over busy side as it is...then you add an hour and a half of gym time unto a day that didn't have any minutes to spare...well...yea...lol... healthy homemade dinners went out the window...the cleaning...yea, that's a joke...and the mess you see is living proof...and i am really beginning to think it's living...lol... my poor son is wondering who i am...and well...i don't even know anymore...though that is not a bad thing... means i am changing...evolving... i am committed to a healthier me...and this time, i came to the conclusion, we are just going to have to make it work... that means, dinners don't always have to be homemade...but yes, healthy is essential... and when i get a chance...homemade is good to :) as for everything else...well...i sometimes have to say no... i took half a day off work Friday so i could do what i needed to do... but that also meant i took time to do something for me...the gym and some relaxation time... tonight i didn't go to church...because i needed to get ahead of this week so it don't run amok like it did last week...life does happen...lol...but i can't keep using it as an excuse either... i can deal the cards dealt me and improve upon it... i can let the cards all scatter to the ground...or i can build a card house with it...and i'm building a house...but not just a flimsy card house...nope, it's going to be strong and steady...because though i may need to say no to somethings...myself and my well being isn't going to be one of them.
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13

It all started i guess, a long long time ago...when I told my boss that i would like a day off... he asked why...i told him i had anal glaucoma... he looked at me funny and i told him i didn't see my butt coming in that day...lol... he didn't have much of a sense of humor, but i did get the day off with no repercussions :) Of course my family thought that was just hilarious... well today, i heard of a big storm that will be hitting us sometime after dinner...so i got this bright idea to sneak out of work a couple hours early to get my bills paid, go to bank, get taxes done, go to grocery store and still have time for a work out before the storm hit... the boss ok'ed it and off i went...just me and my plans... little did i know the whole dang family would find out within a matter of minutes...but before i knew they knew, i get a text from my dd1 asking if my anal glaucoma was acting up again.... lmao...needless to say that took me by surprise as i was sitting in front of the tax person trying to answer questions... so i get my stuff done, pick up dinner...come home to check emails...and my mom was getting discouraged because she has only lost a 1/2 lb... i told her what she always told me...tehe... she is building muscle... i love it...she told me she was one awfully strong woman then...lol...me on the other hand...lost 2 more lbs for a total of 3 lbs this week...of course...i bragged about this fact before i read the email luckily she is very supportive of her daughter :)
God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.
1 Peter 5:5b,6
The ability to live fully in the moment--in the time and place we are right now--is one of the greatest secrets I know of living joyfully. Because once you grasp it, freedom is very close. You stop worrying about the past and stressing out about the future. Enjoying life--not agonizing about what happened yesterday or what might happen tomorrow--becomes your priority. Your days become a gift, not a grind.

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

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...
