Prayer to fit the day!

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

--Reinhold Niebuhr

I know I don't talk about work very much..but I just need to post this because it is very fitting for the day & life.

I'm feeling better today, my stomach flu bug has seemed to have left the premises. I went to aerobics last night & did fine. The instructor turned it into a class clld "fusion" which is 20 minutes step/ 20 minutes kick and 20 minutes of groove. It was sooo much fun. My friend Andrea joined spiece last night so we are going to exercise together. I weighed myself today & am the same as a couple days gain! So that is very motivating.

I'm in a very good mental state about weight loss now. I think my body and head were fighting each other for a while. Anyone else feel that way? I am exercsing regularly and eating alot beter. I'm not weighing myself as much. I'm treating weight as a number and nothing else. You can't let it affect you and I think I was letting it way to much. I think if I just keep doing what I'm doing then I will see results. I am definitely looking thinner & clothes are looser!! yay!

I will post more about my job later.

    Very nice post

I am trying very hard to not look at the scale and let that determine how people see me, if that makes sense.

For instance, I have an interview today and I was kinda feeling like man I wish that I was about 15 lbs lighter then I would feel really good. But in all honesty I know that I am leaps and bounds further than I was three months ago and I am stronger but that number really plays games with my head.

    I've always loved the Serenity Prayer. So much that I purchased a silver bangle bracelet engraved with the most important portion of the verse.

I too have experienced the mind and body battle. My body is walking every night during my son's track practice while the mind is trying to focus on the next meal. I'm sure eventually they will both be on the same page.
