Successful Day, Yesterday! Today is a new day to succeed!

Friday, April 26, 2013

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!

    emoticon blog! Your head is in a healthy place too, both in not letting your pain hold you back but also in putting it in God's hands and leanig on Him in this process. It is also necessary to have a healthy mindset to live in a healthy manner. And you have that, which is a healthy step. Don't forget you can try walking indoors first if you are liable to fall and you can build up your stability and muscle strength doing seated chair exercises, or marching in place seated to build up your walking abilities. Its always a long slow process to recover and start again. Have patience with yourself and loving kindness to yourself as God does and you will recover well. Bless you

    Its good to see your not giving into pain and worry! Two battles won! But do nto try to do too much and too soon. But take small steps and you will find it does help strengthen those muscles and doing that alone will help lower the weight, so dont worry just eat less or more often less. Its how I am doing it. The dizzines may be due to the trauma to your head so pace yourself. (If you can ... take cayenne pepper , that will make sure its not your blood pressure spiking or falling which can cause dizziness and lightheadedness. Your in my prayers! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon so we can.... emoticon Susana

    Keep the vision you and God have set for you, and stay on that path. You may have to occasionally tweak the route but you can keep heading in the same direction. Cris
