But your prints are in a disorganized stream of zig zags, starts, stops, turnarounds, circles, departures, and returns. For much of the way it seems to go like this. But gradually, your footprints come in line with the Lord's, soon paralleling His consistently. You and Jesus are ... Mon, 3 Oct 2011 10:12:22 EST :) Just got back from the beach and I had a good time. It was relaxing, something I don't get to much of! I think I did pretty good with my eating and I did get some walking in on the beach and boardwalk. It's hard sometimes because my husband acts like he's allergic to any kind of exercise and healthy foods LOL! So Monday I'm getting back on track. I did pretty good last month and I'm going to keep going. My mom got me a pretty charm bracelet and for every 10 pounds that I lose I am going to ge... Sun, 11 Sep 2011 14:25:46 EST August is here.... So the only one of my July goals that I did do was to exercise everyday. Oh well. <BR> <BR> This month I'm going to stay in my calorie range and I'll keep exercising everyday. <BR> <BR> My brother is giving me our treadmill back this week and I want to do the SparkPeople Official 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program. It's to hot here to be walking and running outside. <BR> <BR> Looking back at last months goals I want to continue making weekly menus. I need to finish my motivational collage. <B... Sat, 6 Aug 2011 11:02:13 EST My weekend I went grocery shopping this weekend and it seems that I was there for hours. I was checking the labels on just about everything going in my cart! I got lots of fruits and vegetables. I'm going to try hummus. And I'm now in love with veggie burgers with laughing cow cheese! <em>4</em> <BR> I've been doing my Biggest Loser Power Walk every day, only using the weights every other day. Some days using the weights feels so hard. Could my muscles be saying its to much? I also spend a lot of time ... Sun, 17 Jul 2011 08:19:57 EST Struggles I have been struggling so much. I have a great day of making the right choices and exercising and then something always happens to derail me come evening. I keep telling myself tomorrow is a new day and I can start fresh but it's just been such a terrible cycle. I feel like I keep lying to myself. I feel like such a failure. Since starting this journey in April I haven't lost any weight. I'm just constantly battling everyone. <BR> I live in a multi-generational home. It's me, my husband, our ... Mon, 11 Jul 2011 20:25:07 EST July Goals June has gone by so quick and I gained 2 pounds this past month. We just celebrated my grandmother's 90th birthday and about 50 family members for all over the country came for the weekend. I spent the past 2-3 weeks cooking and baking during my exercise hour to get ready. One of my goals will be to get back into regularly exercising daily. Surprisingly I've missed it. For 2 weeks I ate so much "not good" for me food I'm now having a hard time saying no to it. It was easier for me when I qui... Sat, 2 Jul 2011 16:58:14 EST So frustrated This is my first time blogging. <BR> I have been working so hard to keep active with exercising, doing yard work and just staying off the sofa. Not really seeing any pounds come off though. Then yesterday I'm just walking through the kitchen and my ankle overturned and down I went. Now I can barely walk! I'm just having such a hard time with wanting to give up and just eat that cake! Sat, 14 May 2011 09:10:01 EST
