Faith

Monday, September 13, 2010

My devotions this month are about having faith and that means you need to be able to trust in things that are unseen. This is a challenge for me and my lack of self-confidence in myself doesn't help. It speaks of believing in ourselves and not needing all of the answer to move forward, just move in the direction we feel we are supposed to and trust that you will get answers along the way to keep leading you forward.

I'm trying to do this and making some progress. I am proud of myself for what I accomplish one day and then I wake up the next day and I'm filled with self-doubt that I can handle what I've started into motion. It's like mini panic attacks! I think for a long time now - I've been defeating myself and I really do want to move past this.

If anyone out there has any positive advice - I'm open for suggestions.

  


This little light

Monday, August 30, 2010

I was trying to think of a title for my entry today and the song "This Little Light Of Mine" came to mind. I've been allowing other things, people, responsibilities, etc. dim my little light. I also try way to hard on my own and forget to hand the problems over to God and let him handle things for me.

My goal for this week is to let God take the reins and let my "little light" shine. Maybe my "little light" can be a spark to someone else.

    Of course it can. You've paused, you've reflected and now you are executing your plan. Go for it, because you are worth it.

    Sounds good to me. I may borrow it. We can let it shine and give me focus on getting some things done.

Stuck

Thursday, August 26, 2010

I haven't logged my food intake for over a week. My motivation is low.......I am still doing my best at eating correctly and I'm still doing my exercise, however, the scale is stuck.

I know that if I logged my foods I'd probably see that once again - somewhere things are just enough out of sync that my weight is staying the same - I'm not gaining - just haven't lost anything either.

I'm feeling overwhelmed by life in general and having a difficult time trying to get my focus on any one thing. TODAY I'm going to make an effort to get my food logged and get my butt back on track.

    Don't feel bad, I am in the same funk! I have been stuck at the same weight now for well, going on almost 5 months. I've changed my workouts, changed how many calories I eat and still, nothing. I feel like the scale is mocking me. I don't know what else to do, because I sure can't afford to go to a nutritionist or personal trainer right now. Honestly, I'm starting to feel like a lab rat, I've done so many experiments on myself to try to get the scale to move! Hang in there, like Laura said, we are all in this together!!!! emoticon

Testing

Monday, August 16, 2010

I think God is testing me! Every morning I get up and do my devotions and try to have 10 min. of mediation time after this. I pray and ask God - What Do You Want From Me Today Lord?

Whatever it is - I'm not understanding..................

I'm practically convinced that I bring about my own problems - I just don't know how to make it stop! It doesn't make sense to me that I can start each day wanting to do good for others and end up with such crappy situations at work and home. I'm doing my best to keep a positive attitude.

    I know things are rough at work but hang in there! You really gotta get moving on your bakery idea sis....Hani and I both think you would be great at it and I can be your transporter if you would need that since I have the van. Just do it!!! You can start out slow and as you build up (which I don't think will take long at all) then you can get out of there and never have to worry about them again!!!

Whatever you do, don't let it get to you so much that you backslide with your eating. You are doing so great and starting to look different!!!

Blah

Friday, August 13, 2010

Don't really PMS but I sure do get bloated and just get over all sluggish, combine this with the dreary weather of the last two days and I'm feeling blahhhh. I'm really trying to concentrate on the positive things:

It's not 100 degrees out today
I'll be able to take and extra long walk because it's not so hot
I've already done 7 glasses of water today....my normal is usually 5-6.
My food intake has been good
Our pastor comes back tomorrow.......I was running interference while he was away for two weeks.
New Julia Roberts movie opens today
I'm down 10 pounds since starting SP
Only 3 more hours of work today

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...................

    way to hang in there when you're not feeling that terrific...a huge part of getting beyond that is focusing on the positive, your blessings, what you're thankful for and just pushing through it, acting "as if" you felt more energetic. Just going through the motions changes how I feel many times.
