Psalm 16:1 Preserve me, O GOD: for in THEE do I put my trust. Psalm 16: 5 The LORD is portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: THOU maintainest my lot.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. AMEN!
I just want to say how thankful I am to the LORD. First for my salvation, and for all the many blessing HE has given me each day. I am thankful for the LORD walking with me throughout every hardship in my life. Illness has been one of the hardest things for me to go through. Even when I am at my lowest low during illness or/and recovery I know in my heart that the LORD is with me. I have struggled since surgery last November. It is a slow process healing. I trust the LORD. I decided it was time to get busy with my healthy life. I had made attempts to get back to living healthy. Due to being so sick and in pain I just couldn't seem to do it. I couldn't exercise like I needed to, because of the pain I experience in my back. The first step was getting more active. I have prayed and ask the LORD to help me with this. So I started gardening. I work hard and the pain is awful sometimes. I will not be defeated by the pain the devil inflicts upon me. I am active around the house as well. Needless to say I stay exhausted. I do rest when absolutely needed. I am not going to baby myself any longer. The LORD will give me the strength and power to overcome. I decided day before yesterday that if I was doing all these activities, then I should be able to start cooking more healthy. I went on my Nutritional Tracker and planned three days of meal using some of my old planned meals. I did make modifications to them to make sure I was eating as healthy as possible. Yesterday was my first day back on the wagon of healthy eating. I did have times I just wanted to grab something instead of cooking. I did not give in. So with working in the garden and yard, then doing some things in the house, it made cooking a real chore for me. I stuck to my guns and did it anyway. I was so happy at the end of the day. I just thank the LORD for helping accomplish everything yesterday. Today is a new day. I have my planned meals and I have planned chores for outside and inside. I will pace myself and rest as needed.
Everything salted with pray and trust in the LORD will make for another successful day. Looking forward to seeing what is accomplished for the day. It isn't about losing the weight just yet. It is about getting back to doing everything in a healthy fashion. I want to walk at least three times a week, as well. I am having problems getting I still am a fall hazard and still have dizziness from time to time. I have to say even though the doctors couldn't find why I was having the dizzy spells, they have gotten less. So what ever it was is healing. I thank all of you who have been praying for me. I thank GOD for each of you who have kept me in your thoughts and prayers. I have put this in the LORD's hands to help and guide me to wisely take care of my health and body. I need to get off here and get busy. May GOD bless each of you as you are trying to do your best to live healthy and lose weight. Let each of us be a better me, today!
