I went to a class at church last night that I've been going to for 5 weeks. Last night was the last night. They study is called Love and Respect and it's mostly for improving marriage, but last night, he made a wonderful impact on my thinking. <BR> <BR> When we speak to others, we need to speak to them as though we were speaking to our Lord Jesus. He said, 'when you do until the least of these, you do unto me.' Now I need to do all things as though I'm doing them unto the L... Mon, 31 Mar 2014 10:14:08 EST Knowledge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5654505 How would I know I was healthy without the concept of weight? I guess I would know if I felt bad. Sun, 23 Mar 2014 10:54:49 EST Trying to get motivated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5641276 Here I am, several months into this and I'm still the same. I don't know what's wrong with me, but I need to get motivated. Today I worked out to Coach Nicole's 12-Minute Seated Core Workout, tomorrow, I plan to do the 11-Minute Cardio. If I can keep doing this, then hopefully I can get stronger and start doing more. Thu, 6 Mar 2014 10:45:07 EST Thanks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5616381 I want to thank each of you for your support. I'm working on getting healthier. Wed, 5 Feb 2014 22:17:22 EST Trying to get back on track - Healthwise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5615293 I'm writing in my paper journal and now on this. I went to the dentist today for my cleaning and I haven't had my teeth cleaned like that in years. They hurt. But it will be better. <BR> <BR> I'm calling today to reschedule my sleep study to get my CPAP. I can't wait, I'm so tired of being tired. If I can get it going then I can get better. <BR> <BR> I'm going to be getting new glasses soon too. Maybe I'll be able to see better. <BR> <BR> We have been walking to pick up our little one fro... Tue, 4 Feb 2014 19:32:56 EST 2014 - New Day; New Time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5590263 Well, I'm back on it and proud. Hubby and I are striving to eat in a less gluten way without breads, pastas or wheat. We are doing good. Losing slowly and effortlessly. My desire is to lose 25 lbs to begin with. That's from the 208 I started with this time to 183. I want to lower my blood sugars to below 150 and work on getting healthy. Once I've accomplished, I will go for more. <BR> <BR> Hubby was diagnosed as prediabetic so he wants to lose about 10 to 15 lbs, just enough to get out of t... Sat, 11 Jan 2014 12:43:31 EST Overall Feelings So Far http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5558957 This should be my sleep journal, but I'm finally getting better sleep. I still get up and down for the restroom 4 to 6 times a night, but at least I'm going right back to sleep. <BR> <BR> I'm actually starting to wonder if it's not my Kindle that is causing the insomnia problem. Right now I'm reading from a regular book and going to sleep just fine. Any comments are welcome and appreciated. <BR> <BR> As for my eating and diet goals and accomplishments, I'm not sure that I'm doing that well... Sat, 7 Dec 2013 09:59:41 EST Sleep Journal Day 6 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5554048 Went to be early but read for at least a couple of hours. I think I do have insomnia. I'm going to research it and see what I can do. Sun, 1 Dec 2013 10:14:33 EST Sleep Journal Day 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5552798 Slept like the dead, but not enough hours. Went to bed at 12:30 and woke up at 7:30. Only 2 times getting up to use the bathroom. I guess it was 7 hours, but it felt like 3. Fri, 29 Nov 2013 13:02:07 EST Sleep Journal Day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5551433 Today is the second day of journaling about my sleeping. I probably slept longer today, but I didn't get anymore sleep because I was up more times going to the bathroom and I woke up in between times to. I'm pretty sure I woke up about every hour. I sure wish I could get a good nights sleep without waking up by maybe one time a night to go potty. Wed, 27 Nov 2013 10:44:37 EST Sleep Journal Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5550646 I'm using this as a sleep journal for the time being. I went to bed a 10 pm last night and read my book for awhile, then I went to sleep. I woke up 3 times through the night to use the bathroom and had mild difficulty getting back to sleep. Got up at 6:30 instead of 6 but I don't feel to bad about that. I will try to get to bed earlier tonight and sleep better, but I can't help waking up to go to the bathroom. Tue, 26 Nov 2013 10:39:45 EST Thanks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5544293 Thanks to everyone, I will not give up and I will go set small goals to help encourage me. Mon, 18 Nov 2013 12:19:03 EST Unknown http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5544191 I'm not really sure what my ultimate goal is, I would tell people and myself that it's to ensure I'm here to raise my 5 year old, and it is, but that's not my ultimate reason. I guess it would be to be pain free. I'm so tired of waking up in pain, being in pain all day, etc. I want to feel good again. Mon, 18 Nov 2013 10:20:13 EST Exercise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5537227 Well, I guess I just have to say that life gets in my way of exercise. I hate others to watch me when I exercise so if others are around then I won't do it. I procrastinate very much and soon it's bed time. I'm just bad. I need to set a time and do it then without fail. Sun, 10 Nov 2013 10:28:42 EST New Year, New Life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1655958 Well, I've joined the New You Bootcamp and now I'm trying to find a way to do the exercises. I tried to copy the exercises to a DVD, but so far that hasn't worked, but I will keep trying. <BR> <BR> I hope I don't have to quit the group because I can't do the videos. I wish I could do some other type of cardio to take the place of the exercise in the videos. I guess I can check to see if that's an option. Sun, 4 Jan 2009 23:07:20 EST New Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=557663 This week I decided that I'd learned nothing since starting this program so I've decided to restart the program. As of yesterday, I was still making the same mistake. As of today, I plan to really start over and use the tools and apply the information I get to really start losing weight once and for all. My new goal is to lose 1 pound per week for the next 80 weeks. This should talke approximately 1.5 years, but I did not put the weight on overnight, so I need to take it off the same way I pu... Sun, 13 May 2007 10:24:00 EST Quote of May 6, 2007 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=547192 I don't only have myself to fall back on, I have the Lord. He is my strength and my salvation. Without Him, I am nothing. He provides for all of my needs. Sun, 6 May 2007 11:51:42 EST A good thought http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=365313 I'm glad I read this reflection today. We spend so much time trying to do what we can do to get where we want to go and neglect the journey for getting there. We've never been promised tomorrow so we need to enjoy today to the best of our ability. Mon, 8 Jan 2007 09:21:17 EST Wonderful Thought http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=320325 This is great, I believe it's what the Lord wants for us. The greatest happiness comes from helping others. Mon, 20 Nov 2006 22:45:06 EST Procrastination http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=315515 I am one of the biggest procrastinators in this world. I need to learn to handle things today instead of waiting until tomorrow. Wed, 15 Nov 2006 09:41:36 EST Talent http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=297878 Now all I need to do is find out what I'm good at. Thu, 26 Oct 2006 11:15:45 EST
