Month of April


Monday, April 01, 2013

I just weighed for the 1st time in about 3 weeks. I liked being able to go that long distance without thinking about my weight or anything.

The past couple weeks, I got to focus solely on my walk and personal relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. I was not distracted by the scale. I absolutely love not being distracted by the scale! I didn't do anything different this past month, EXCEPT eating late at night and staying up late at night. I hope this will quickly become an old habit, and I can get back on my usual bedtime schedule..

About 3 weeks ago, I went to the doctor and found out that I have an all nut allergy and shortly after remembered I just can't handle egg yolks--testing the waters to see if it's egg whites too. This is in addition to not being able to have gluten, high fructose, and watching out for dairy (lactose intolerance). I have found "Allergy Free" recipes to be something that I am definitely keeping in mind for the future. I bought one cookbook, and finally got the ingredients to begin dabbling with it a little bit.

I really am hoping to try to exercise. Right now for me, exercise is when I go somewhere on the bus. Fantastic! But... I need to start doing something light a couple days a week. I began doing the "Free Step" on the Wii Fit. Hoping to continue that a few times a week. I am working on convincing myself that in the beginning it will be a very slow process, only 10-15 minutes every other day. I am already tempted to do a little bit today, but I know I need to *take it slow*.

Eating: My goals for eating this upcoming month is to add in protein and fiber. Also, hoping plan before eating. I am not good at planning, so it will be a growing process for me.

Anyway, that's all that is going on with me.

Weight Lost to-date: 54 pounds.

This Past Week: 2.5 pounds.

All by fixing my eyes on my Creator.
Seeking to grow closer to Him and Honor Him in how I choose to eat, by not overeating and eating for the wrong reason.
All of the weight is coming off, because of GOD and God alone!!!

If we (I mean me) can silence all the craziness in our lives and minds and live close to our Creator God then we can do anything. You are so right. Thanks for the reminder.

    Love it! I felt a bit like that this week. Relax in the Lord and the rest will follow. The program, while important, is just a speck in the grand plan He has for us. You are a shining example!
