It has been a couple months since my last blog and my last time on Sparkpeople. I wanted to give my friends an update in what has been going on in my life.
I guess I will start off with an update of my journey to life change. I have lost a total of 40 lbs. I am only 10 lbs from my initial goal. I need to measure myself and post those to see how much I have lost there. I have been struggling the last few weeks with counting my calories and not eating sweats, but I have however kept from drinking any sodas, except the sprite I had when I had a stomach bug. I believe I will be having to go on the calorie counting again real soon to hit my goal of 250 by June. I have been playing racquetball about 4 days a week for cardio, but have neglected to do any strength training for a few weeks. I have lost some motivation in my journey but mostly due to the time I have to do things.
I have started my garden already. I planted lettuce, radish, garlic, onions, and carrots. It is getting cold tonight, looks like a hard freeze is on its way, temperatures in the upper teens. I know that the seeds I planted are real hardy plants and like the cooler weather. I just don't know how much cooler. I can just hope that the ground is warm enough to keep the crops growing.
I wanted to update you guys on the calling I have in ministry. I have registered in school with Global University and have been working on completing my first class. I am down to my last assignment and then I will be testing. The first class was very informative and helped me understand a lot about Christ and the times he lived in. My assignment is to do something to minster to a person of people about some of what I learned. I believe I am going to do it here. I would appreciate it if you guys and gals would pass the word along to all that you can to read my blog and give a response. I will right the blog on Thursday morning. I want to thank you guys in advance.
Praise the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
Have a Blessed day.
