Did I eat in secret or out of anger or frustration or boredom? no <BR> <BR> 5.Did I feel that at any time I ran to food instead of to God? well I didn't run to food but I didn't call on God's strength to control my eating. <BR> <BR> 6.

Yesterday was a really nice day so i thought I would start up my jogging again. I haven't jogged since last fall. (I'm a fair weather jogger) I jogged about 1.3 miles in 15 min and then walked home. I say that isn't to bad for the 1st time this year. This morning I am not really sore like I thought I would be. I am so excited. <BR> <BR> I also got my pedometer fixed so i will be trying to get 8000 steps in a day. My eating is going well... Thu, 3 Apr 2014 07:54:01 EST a new out look http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5662393 I have been reading Made to crave by Lysa Terkeurst and it has been really good for me. I see how my focus has been on food and getting healthy and skinny. I need to be more focused on obeying God. My motivation needs to be obedience to God and not letting food rule my life. <BR> In one chapter it says we should define our week by obedience and not by the scales. Here are some questions they said to ask yourself every week: <BR> 1.Did I overeat this week on any day? <BR> 2. Did I move ... Wed, 2 Apr 2014 08:11:13 EST small success http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5658418 I did really well yesterday. I went out to lunch with a friend and I ordered fairly healthy. There are some improvements I could make and I will next time. but it is a start. then last night I was still hungry but instead of eating junk I had some hummus and grain crackers. I was able to stay in my ranges. Went to bed feeling good. <BR> <BR> Today is a new day and it is a rainy one. My sinuses are really going crazy but I plan to get my butt moving and have another good day.

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 10:38:36 EST question??? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5655980 I have now exercised almost a week straight so I am happy about that.. It seems like I can only do one thing at a time it is either eat right and not exercise or exercise and not eat right... <BR> <BR> How do I get them both going at the same time? I eating has been bad these days and I just can't seem to stop. Tue, 25 Mar 2014 08:26:03 EST March 19,2014 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651473 so much for recording every day. I guess I will start over again...

Sun, 2 Mar 2014 08:26:41 EST March 1, 2014 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5636694 Today is march 1st a new month a fresh start new beginnings again. I am going to post my goals for the day and then the next day mark how I did. this seemed to help my the last time I did it. So these blogs will not be interesting for anyone but me. I had thought about doing it as a journal entry but there is something about having people be able to see it that helps me be more consistent. <BR> <BR> today's goals: <BR> 1. Bible time <BR> 2. 10 min of exercise <BR> 3. 5 freggies <BR> 4. clean... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 08:32:27 EST A new day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5636078 I want to thank everyone for all the encouragement. I am doing well today eating is on track and exercised 40 min with some strength thrown in there too. <BR> <BR> I am going to start small and build things up. Fri, 28 Feb 2014 12:19:26 EST The end of February http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5634039 I have gone down hill from my last post. so I will chalk this month up as a failure. When will my attitude and cations change? Each month I start out with good ideas and intentions and by the end of the month it is an epic failure. My goals are not unreasonable and each month I cut them down to make it easier to do. Soon I will be doing nothing and then maybe I will succeed. <BR> <BR> Wed, 26 Feb 2014 06:44:44 EST Mid Feb look back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5620131 I look back at my goals for the month I see I am doing well with my eating and water. It is the exercise part that i am not doing well at. even the 10 min a day. i can't wait for warmer weather. I feel so much better when the weather is nice. <BR> <BR> I still need to put forth an effort to exercise. i also really need to work on organizing my house. <BR> <BR> So far the month is going well. <BR> <BR> I am doing a Bible study called Seeking Him and last week was on repentance. It reall... Mon, 10 Feb 2014 08:31:18 EST A new day..A new week ...A new month http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5613764 I am so thankful for new days and start overs. This last week was very bad. I worked everyday and then I moved my youngest daughter (19) 750 miles away to start a new job. It was very emotional and hard. Many tears were shed on both sides. How come this kids grow up so fast? <BR> <BR> So I stepped on the scales this morning and gained 9 pounds. This was an emotional week with not much movement. There was 13 hour car ride on Friday and on Saturday unpacking and getting her settled and heade... Mon, 3 Feb 2014 09:08:04 EST Monday another long day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5607475 Today was another long day at the college book store. I had no problem reaching my 10000 steps today. As of right now 12500 steps, boy does my feet hurt. I went into today with a much better attitude. I think not setting so high of goals really help. I also had a salad today for lunch and that got my freggies in. I did track my food. <BR> <BR> I love the feeling when I have had a great Bible time to start my day. It gets me in a right mood. Mon, 27 Jan 2014 18:35:48 EST January .... I would call an epic fail http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5605046 As I sit here and look back over the month I realize how much I need routine and when my routine changes I fall apart. I started out so well and then blew the whole month in just 1 week. I so need to get back at this. I have 1 more week of crazy work. My mind has said I will start Feb. 1st. But I can't I need to start now. I read pinkhope's blog and she said we can't let obstacles stop our progress. I may not be able to do all I would normally do but I can do some. I need to stop thinkin... Sat, 25 Jan 2014 08:31:02 EST January 15 My week so far http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5594529 I knew going into this week it would be busy but what I didn't know is how much it would kick my butt. I guess I am not fully over the flu. Monday I spent the day with my girls wedding planning and shopping. We walked all over. Then yesterday I spent12 hours at the hosp. for my dad's surgery. I was able to get a good walk in there too. But both days I just crashed in the evening so nothing else got done. I am very thankful my one daughter cleaned the house for me. <BR> <BR> My eating has... Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:49:30 EST January 9 reflections http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5587805 This week has been going well. I have manages to get 2 days of exercise in and will exercise today as well. I read someone's blog earlier today about not being motivated. I can understand completely. I am not sure what makes a person lose their motivation but i go through that a lot. i was doing so good till Nov and then just couldn't make myself get up and go. I do know I had a lot on my plate at that time and I don't think I was getting the sleep I needed. I am really thinking sleep ha... Thu, 9 Jan 2014 08:53:00 EST January 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5585340 Yesterday was a fun day. My girls and I went wedding dress shopping and we found one. My daughter looks so beautiful in it. We then checked out silk flowers for her wedding. We also went shopping for my youngest daughter who will be moving to NC at the end of the month. She has been offered a great job and feels that is where God wants her to be. I am sad she is going so far away but who can argue with God. <BR> <BR> All that shopping wore me out though so I didn't get any formal exer... Tue, 7 Jan 2014 09:00:21 EST January 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5583068 Well this Flu is kicking my butt. I won't be able to do the 28 day challenge this month(at least not complete it). I am still hoping to get it started soon. I woke up yesterday and said I am done with being sick. I guess I was wrong. I did to much yesterday and that wasn't very much and just going to church today did me in. So I will try to concentrate on my eating which by the way isn't that good either right now. I hope to be feeling better soon. Sun, 5 Jan 2014 13:58:11 EST January 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5577641 I had great plans to start this new year but God had other plans. i got the flu and am laid out for a little while. I am hope to get better soon to start this new year right. So I have tried to figure out my plan of attack while I can't do much else. I am going to have some long term goals and short term goals. <BR> January goals: <BR> 1. do the 28 day boot camp challenge <BR> 2. eat 5 freggies a day 2 fruits and 3 veggies <BR> 3. finish memorizing James 1 <BR> <BR> 6 month goals: <BR> 1.to... Wed, 1 Jan 2014 10:22:23 EST My plan for the holidays http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5564071 With the party seasons approaching I need to come up with some ideas so I wont get out of control. <BR> <BR> My goals are not going to be so ridged that I wont be able to keep them. My daughter and I sat down and came up with some fun challenges that we are going to do. We also looked at our schedules and tried to plan an exercise plan <BR> The eating is going to be the hardest so I have made menus out for the rest of the year so I know what I will be eating (most of the time). <BR>... Sat, 14 Dec 2013 08:44:40 EST 1 day of success http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5563367 I am had a good day yesterday. I was able to track everything (went over just a little). I was able to do 30 min of cardio and did 4 sets of 15 of wall push ups. had a good Bible time and worked on memorizing James. I also had 8 glasses of water and 6 freggies. <BR> <BR> It felt so good to get into it again. <BR> <BR> Today:s goals <BR> 1. track <BR> 2. eat 5 freggies <BR> 3. memorize James 1 <BR> 4. exercise Fri, 13 Dec 2013 07:16:03 EST Wednesday Again :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5561847 My good intentions turned out to be just good intentions. I gained weight and ate horribly and exercised zero. <BR> <BR> I know there has to be a mind change so here it goes. <BR> <BR> Goals for this week. <BR> 1 track all my food <BR> 2 exercise 3 times this week <BR> 3 have my Bible time <BR> 4 work on memorizing James 1 Wed, 11 Dec 2013 06:24:53 EST trying to plan my new year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5558923 As I look over last year I am a little disappointed. The scales didn't change much but I also realized I can't be looking at the scales all the time. I need to look at my over all progress. When I do that it was a good year. I ran several 5Ks and went down in a pants size. I feel healthier and eating better. I also was able to exercise more. <BR> <BR> The month of Dec is going to be hard. I have been in a slump in the month of Nov. I am hoping to get back on track so when Jan comes I will... Sat, 7 Dec 2013 09:06:38 EST Wednesday week 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5556566 I did manage to lose .6 pounds this week.I am not sure how but I did. I didn't do great yesterday. There was no exercising and I only had 3 freggies.

I just haven't been able to get back to where I was. I was so good for 13 weeks. I just have been so hard getting back. I seem to be letting life get the best of me. I know it is a mind set.. I know all the things I need to do and I know how to get started. I just don't know why I can't seem to do it. <BR> <BR> so I guess I start at the beginning again. <BR> <BR> Goals today: <BR> 1. 10 min of exercise <BR> 2. 4 freggies <BR> 3. 8 glasses of water Tue, 3 Dec 2013 07:27:34 EST wednesday week 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5551291 I am not doing as well as I would like to be doing. My mind set is still not really in it. I am hoping with my daughter home for a little bit will help. She wants to lose too so we can do it together. I did lose .5 pound this last week so a little is better than nothing. <BR> <BR> I have been slacking in my exercising. I am drinking my water. My food has been ok but I have been eating to many sweets. <BR> <BR> today's goals: <BR> 1. 5 freggies <BR> 2. stay in ranges <BR> 3. exercise at...

I was having a major pity party for myself. Woe is me My life is so tough and everyone wants something from me. It was all about me. I was not relying on God nor trusting Him nor giving Him my best. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. That doesn't mean I have to do all things only the things that God has put me in charge of and then let Him help me. <BR> <BR> I know my life is supper busy right now but that is not an excuse to give up on l...

We were up at 4 this morning fixing a good breakfast and getting all ready. Dressed in his orange. Hope he has enough orange on to keep him safe. He left the house at 5 and I am not sure when he will be home. I am not sure I want him to get a deer or not that will be a whole bunch of new meals. <BR> <BR> As for yesterday I was over in my ranges. this eating at at night is crazy but at 3 is to early.

Sat, 16 Nov 2013 06:46:20 EST Here comes the weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5541682 My dad is doing a little better but he will be there another week so we are going to have to cancel our trip to Las Vegas. <BR> <BR> Yesterday was a little better. I didn't eat well but My attitude was better. Maybe it was the sun. I am hoping to get outside today and enjoy the warm weather. <BR> <BR> today's goals <BR> 1. drink water <BR> 2. 10 min of exercise <BR> 3. plank challenge day 2 Fri, 15 Nov 2013 07:37:01 EST new goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5540770 I am not sure how to pull myself out of this downward move. I need to get out before I undo all that I have done in 13 weeks. So I will try again <BR> <BR> goals <BR> 1. 10 min of exercise <BR> 2. drink 8 glasses of water <BR> Thu, 14 Nov 2013 06:56:50 EST Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5538902 Yesterday I didn't get exercise in, I didn't eat very well either, Last night I went to bed praying for wisdom and strength to get back on the train. I think I know what I need to do. <BR> <BR> today's goals <BR> 1. spent less time on the computer <BR> 2. drink 10 glasses of water <BR> 3. 10 min of exercise <BR> Tue, 12 Nov 2013 06:55:48 EST getting the train back on the track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5538066 After a week on long work week and trips to the hospital everyday to see my very sick dad I had no energy for myself. My eating was bad and the only exercise was walking from the car to the hospital. The junk food was easy to grab. It was easier to take the elevator than the stairs. I also didn't get the much needed sleep. The stress of my dad and all the things at home derailed me. <BR> <BR> I was doing so well and getting stronger and healthier. It is amazing what a week can do. The thin... Mon, 11 Nov 2013 09:25:37 EST week 1 Saturday take 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5536347 well I am starting over. I did really well for 13 weeks. It is amazing how things fall apart if you don't stay on track. This last week has been filled with many ups and downs and has been an emotional roller coaster. I am not saying it has been a failure but is has been a learning experience. I can so easily turn to food for comfort when I should be turning to God, who is all I need for strength and comfort. <BR> <BR> I made poor choices and got wrapped up in the moments. Even when thing... Sat, 9 Nov 2013 07:17:53 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5535170 I have not been doing well. I am Working from 6:30 am to 1:30 pm then visiting my dad at the Hosp. then home to get ready for the next day. I feel like a zombi going through the motions. <BR> <BR> My eating isn't great and I am walking a lot in the hosp. but that is all the exercise I am getting. Thu, 7 Nov 2013 19:41:55 EST week 14 Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5532606 Yesterday I did much better in eating. I didn't over eat. I did park for from the hospital and I too the stairs. So I guess I did ok. <BR> <BR> Not sure What today will bring. My dad is having a tube put into his kidney. We will see how that goes. <BR> <BR> Feeling very tired and drained Tue, 5 Nov 2013 06:54:15 EST week 14 Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5531613 Yesterday was not good. Emotional eating was bad. My dad took a turn for the worse. His infection has gone into his blood stream and they have had to put a breathing tube in. He is on med to keep his blood pressure up. It is not looking good....but I know God is bigger than anything and He is in control. <BR> <BR> Not sure how well my eating is going to be. I am going to try to eat well. Not sure how much exercise I will get in but I am going to try <BR> <BR> Today's goals <BR> 1. try not...

My friend went with me in the morning and then my daughter came for the afternoon. After it was over and all cleaned up my son and husband took me out to dinner. I knew it was going to be a long day so I got up early and got my exercise in before I went. That was a good thing because I didn't eat well at dinner. I was way over but I was still a very good day. <BR> <BR> I had a plan for today but that has changed My dad we...

I didn't even track my food because of all the junk I ate. I started out so well. then i had to run to the store and I got my son some treats. SO when he got home fro school I had eaten chips and rolo candies. There wasn't much in the house so I had cheese for lunch and then we made muffins and I had a few of them. I also didn't feel good so there was no exercise done either. <BR> <BR> I am doing better today and am getting ready to get back on t...

Why is it that when it comes to ST I skip it? I need to find something to really challenge me to do it or find something I enjoy so I will do it, <BR> <BR> Today my son has a half day of school so we are going to my father in laws so he can target shoot. I am not sure how fun that will be for me but then not everything is about me. I will get to spend time with him. I have really enjoyed having him be the only one home. <BR> <BR> Today's...

Spent much of my day going to the bathroom. I got in a walk and ab workout and also upped the freggies. Above all that I really focused on God and absorbed myself in His will. <BR> <BR> So with that said I stepped on the scales this morning and I stayed the same. I am very happy with that. Although I didn't reach my goal for the week I am happy I didn't gain. I wasn't stressed over the scale all day yesterday and I was really...

I had gained a lot. I am not surprised with the way I ate Sunday and Monday. Ok so now I have 2 choices. <BR> <BR> 1. give up and eat whatever I want and not care. Consider myself a failure destined to be fat and unhealthy all my life. <BR> OR <BR> <BR> 2. Praise God for what He is doing in my life and forgiving my for my failures and mistakes. Look for the NSV that I have been having and be happy...
