Sorry I've Been MIA, it's this Popcorn Thing!

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

I love my spark buddies! I know that I know I would not be this far ahead in weight loss, strength training, well the whole gambit really without you! Please know how very special each of you are to me. I feel really bad because I have been so busy, I have not had a moment to say hi, whether along write, but today I made time. You see, I have gone back to work, well sort of. I have reignited an old home business, and it is taking off! I am so excited, and it is moving so quickly, but it is good, all good.

I am also in the process of creating a 31 day devotional that will be available as an ebook, hopefully within the next several months give or take. I am very excited about this, and I look forward to keeping everyone in the loop about that as well. I still plan to blog when I can, but God has been calling me to compile them, and so I have a "stockpile" building if you will, that I plan to release at one time. I just can't believe the things he is up to in my life! So, so wonderful.

Made more changes to my day to days. Basically really staying close to water, no pop, it keeps stunting my progress, and it actually causes me to gain weight, even diet, so I am just saying no. Eating more greens, and I have really increased my exercise, nearly double the intensity. Boasting a nice loss this week, but man did I work my tail off!

Oh, what else. Well, we've had some tragic developments. My seven year old nephew has been diagnosed with a brain tumor that is in need of removal. He goes for surgery October 25th, still believing for a miracle, your prayers are appreciated. Heading to Tennessee in November because my husband's father had a stroke and a heart attack, so we really feel the need to get down there to see him. The girls (four and one) have never met their grandfather, so that should be very fun and exciting.

All in all, I can't sit still! I've got a boy graduating and heading to the Air Force next year, a daughter who just passed her NCLEX and is officially working as a nurse! Another boy looking at welding, and the little ones keeping me on my toes. So thankful to be 76 pounds slimmer because I have no idea how I'd be pulling all of this off without that loss! So thankful to God. So, so thankful. And very thankful for my buddies. I do hope to be on here sooner than later, catching up with everyone.

Please keep the good fight. No matter what comes your way, please take time for you, and oh yeah, I'll see you at the finish line!!!

You can do this! I can do this! WE CAN DO THIS! Woo Hoo! Xo

    Praying for peace and the perfect will of God for your nephew. Don't worry about personal replies to ME. Gee, if I only wrote to folks who wrote to me, I wouldn't be keeping the PO busy! Shel
