A Beautiful Day!!

Sunday, August 22, 2010

"This is the day the Lord has made......." That is the way our pastor begins every Sunday morning. And, I never cease to be awed by the beauty of our world. We have so many problems and hurts, but for me it is so comforting to know that God truly is in control. And, the pain we may be experiencing is only a little hurt compared to the glory we will experience thru eternity with Him!!

And, the wonder of our physical bodies - just this morning was looking at a one week old beautiful little girl. A new and completely independent life created from the love of two parents. Now that truly is a miracle!!!

And people say miracles do not happen today???

Last Night Movie and Popcorn

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Watched part of a movie and had some popcorn - BUT, did not have any butter (I baked cookies yesterday and used the last) - so, just added a little salt -
and it just did not work!!!

But, did have another glass of water making the 6 GLASSES FOR YESTERDAY!!!
So this glass is for yesterday: emoticon

I am going to stop here at 6 and continue this for a week - and see how I do.

Thanks for all the encouragement this week -

NOW for a week of 6 glasses a day!!! emoticon

  Get some seasoned popcorn toppings and try them -- or the powdered butter subs to see if that helps

Day Four

Thursday, August 19, 2010

DAY FOUR - FOUR GLASSES OF WATER - emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Only four glasses of water - 1 large glass of iced tea (unsweetened). It is getting harder - I just do not like water -
i drink it iced - sometimes add a slice of lemon. Having my Camelbak really does help tho.

  I found carrying a waterbottle in the car very handy. I bring it in with me to work and make a point to refill it as soon as it's empty.

Also, a nice drink of water can help postpone the urge to EAT.

Good luck. emoticon
