Thoughts on Thursday
My sciatica was acting up even before Darby (our pit bull) knocked me down half a dozen stairs the other day. I'm not sure how much is sciatica and how much discomfort is a result of the sliding down the stairs! I've been doing my (PT) exercis... Read more
Spring has sprung!
Not only are there buds on trees and bushes, but my weeping willow has delicate green leaves on it.....very pretty. I do enjoy the bare limbs of winter, but am always glad to see the new green on trees, too.
We had a couple of rainy days, ... Read more
I walked w/my buddy today for the 1st time in MONTHS! Neither of us can walk in the cold, so during the winter I used my treadmill. It was WONDERFUL to walk outside today - warm, but not hot; slight breeze, great company. I've warned her that... Read more
I'm so energized right now. I believe I have fully shed the respiratory infection that messed w/me and my exercise program; and now I'm back on track. Hoo-rah!
It's a BEAUTIFUL, sunny day that is supposed to get into the upper 60's. Read more
A new day
I did do slightly better yesterday w/fats, etc, but nothing to really brag about. BUT, 'baby steps' count. Did even better today w/nutrition.
We were out of town for a few days, and eating out can KILL me if I'm not hyper-vigilent. I'... Read more
Thought I was doing not too badly w/nutrition today, but after I'd tracked it all, well, let's just leave the details a secret between me and my body; but suffice it to say that I really blew it with fats. sigh.
Ok, Nancy, it's just one ... Read more
Trying to enjoy the showers
We had several BEAUTIFUL sunny days, and now it's rainy - and is to be so for the next few days. God is sending us gentle rain, which is good because even w/that, there are flood warnings out thru tomorrow.
I'm grateful that God sends the ... Read more
It IS sunny right now, but showers are to move in before the night is over. : ( I've gotten spoiled by all the sunny, WARM days we've been having. It's supposed to be shower-y or rain for each of the next 4 days or so. Oh well, the ground wa... Read more
Had a regular schedule appt w/my pulmonologist today: generally good news, but he added prednisone to help get rid of the infection. That antibioltic IS working, but sometimes needs help. Some of you know what I mean.
I can hardly wait t... Read more
Lost my fight w/my cold
I WAS getting over my cold, then everything moved into my chest and now I'm on Rx drugs. sigh. I feel like crud this weekend but am determined to obey the dr and get well so I can meet my goal of getting below 150 lbs by the end of March! Read more
God wants us to live victoriously. He provides the power (His) for us to do what He wants, so we DO HAVE power to live victoriously. How often we forget that and live under sin's rule; but how often (EVERY time) God lifts us up again.

It's been a difficult week
If you've read my other blogs from this week, you know it's been tough. But God grants grace and mercy (and sends friends who encourage and pray for me and my dau).
Yesterday morning we went to the animal shelter and right away I started... Read more
Another 'Grand' in God's Presence
Thank you for all the prayers for Heather. Please continue, as she did miscarry for the 4th time. She just can't get past her 1st trimester. I think she finally agrees that she needs to be seeing a hi-risk ob instead of her regular gyn. It'... Read more
Resting in God's Hands
I will shortly take my dau to the dr to get the results of the blood work - has she miscarried again? The test will tell. I continue to rest in God's hands and leave it to Him. It's not a once-and-done thing exactly.....doubts and questions a... Read more
Sorrow and Confidence
I got out of the shower in time to hear the phone this morning. When I answered, it was my youngest, crying so hard I could hardly understand her. I told her to get to the hospital (her DH was at work) and we'd meet her there.
HJ has mis... Read more
