When my timeline, career, family life, and spiritual walk are going as planned, I accept Your ways, Lord. I rest in how rewarding my faith can be. But when I face hardship, I assume You have left me or have caused me pain. I know this is not truth. You do not give us more than we are able to bear, God, help me sense Your active presence. Teach me Your mercy so that I never question it again. Give my heart a measure of promise to keep me going.
Plant in me a trust that will take firm root. Help me recall the previous times when difficulties turned into lessons, strength, and even blessing. May I see every obstacle as an opportunity to accept all that You have for me. Amen

I got a prescription for Chantix today! I won't be able to get it filled until I get my income tax return, but at least I have it! I also got a card with a code on it so I can call 1-800-NOBUTTS and get the patch! Yay! There is hope for me yet:)
I spent all day at the clinic, didn't get home until 2 pm, after working all night, so I ended up over sleeping and was an hour late for work:(
I called my boss and he was really great about me being late. This is the first time I have ever been late, so he was very reasonable about it. I really hate being late though!

Today I was going to have a leisurely day-or so I thought! I decided to take the bus to the store. A short little trip that would be fun, the store is only about a couple of miles down the road. Well, I got on the bus and made it to the store just fine, then I ended buying more than I had planned, and ended up with my backpack full of fresh vegetables and fruit plus two bags of groceries I would have to carry, plus I found out it cost $2.50 every time you get on the bus, so it was $5.00 to go there and come back! When I got off the bus it was practically in front of the store, but....when I came out of the store and looked for the bus stop going back the other way, I couldn't see one anywhere! I walked up the street and around the corner, and still no bus stop in sight! A young man pointed out where there was one down the other street so I walked over there only to find out it was going the opposite way of where I wanted. So then I walked back to the store, across the street, and started walking in the direction of home. Finally, I saw the bus stop, but it was still a ways away! I made it there, but my back was drenched in sweat from the weight of the vegetables in it and the sun was shining bright the whole time! I did make home ok, but boy am I tired! Which is a good thing, because I have to work from 10pm-6am again, and this time I think I will be able to take a good long nap before I go to work! So all in all it turned out for the best! Good exercise and a good nap in a few minutes!

I rode the bus to the library today to pick up the book I requested. It was really interesting and took up most of the day, but I made a special friend at the bus stop. He is a little bit mentally challenged and said I was "a very nice lady". I asked him if he knew what time the bus was supposed to be there and he said "oh, about this time everyday". I coughed and he asked me if I was a smoker, I said yes and he said that's why I have that smoker's cough! It was very cute. On my way back home, I saw him again and we talked for a minute. He really made my day!
I got a lot of walking in and then came home and took a nap-had to live up to my nickname!
I cooked boneless, skinless, chicken breast, with chicken gravy and rice, and mixed, steamed vegetables for dinner. I had cream of wheat and a glass of juice for breakfast. Right next to library is taco bell and I went in thinking I was going to order the 5-layer burrito and a pepsi, but the calories were posted right on the menu board 540-700! So, I got the crunchy taco and a small pepsi. Did I really get the small pepsi? Yes, I did! I am feeling pretty good about my choices today!
I even cleaned the house real good before I left and finished enrolling in school. So, all and all I had a pretty good day! Oh and I forgot to mention that I took cashews and raisins for a snack while I was on the bus! Another good choice I made today!

I jumped rope for 50 jumps, but not all at once. I set my alarm for 15 minutes, then jumped rope 10 times, then walked to the end of our parking lot and back, then jumped 10 more, then walked, for 15 minutes straight! I was very proud of myself, I didn't think I could do it:)
I finished up enrolling in college and I will start again on the 15th of February. I think I will enjoy it because I love school! It gives something to do and keeps my mind busy. I probably won't be spending as much time on SP as I do now, but I will still plan on exercising and logging in my food everyday, because being in school for the past couple of years is how I gained all this extra weight in the first place!
