Going Backwards

Monday, October 05, 2009      2 comments

I'm not sure what's happening. I have been a little less disciplined about eating over the last two weeks due to unusual busyness but not much. I have been strength training three days per week which I have not previously done. I have been takin... Read more

Another Long, but Very Good, Day

Friday, October 02, 2009      0 comments

Wow, it's just been one of those seasons of life! Ever since I returned from vacation in the middle of August I have worked 60-70 hours every week! Today was another long one, up at 6:00 started work at 7:00, had working lunch, dinner and snacks... Read more

Couldn't Sleep but Trusting the Lord

Thursday, October 01, 2009      3 comments

It's my fault, I'll be the first to admit it. I don't normally have caffeine but given the busyness of the week I gave in. To add to the problem, our family decided to try a new Mexican restaurant last night and though I ate within my limits (it... Read more

Holiness, Grace & Punishment--A Note to a Friend

Wednesday, September 30, 2009      1 comments

This morning I sent the following note to a friend of mine who is serving Jesus Christ in the far east. I wanted her to know we were thinking about and praying for her, and I wanted to encourage her in the Lord. I hope it blesses you as well (I ... Read more

Humbling Ourselves before God

Tuesday, September 29, 2009      1 comments

This morning in my daily Bible reading I read a few chapters from the Old Testament book of Isaiah and the thing that struck me most was the words that the day is coming when the Lord will crush all arrogance so that he alone will be exalted (Is... Read more

Busyness & Diet

Monday, September 28, 2009      0 comments

Life has been unusually busy ever since I got back from vacation in mid-August. I have been working 60-70 hour weeks and trying to attend to many things at home as well. I don't like being this busy, I'm not a workaholic, but at times one must d... Read more

God is Good!

Low Cal Day Today

Saturday, September 26, 2009      1 comments

I've been at some meetings the last two days where they've fed us incredibly well and I've gone WAY over my daily limits. So I'm going to take it easy the next couple of days and balance things out, not neglecting the stuff my body needs but jus... Read more

Still Thankful to the Lord

Friday, September 25, 2009      0 comments

As I wrote yesterday--a mere 10 hours ago--I have the privilege of meeting with a group of pastors today who, like me, love to start new churches. I won't repeat what I said there but for a number of reasons I'm just so grateful to the Lord for ... Read more

So Thankful to the Lord!

Thursday, September 24, 2009      2 comments

I'm what they call a "church planter" which means I love starting new churches. Four times per year I meet with a group of other planters for accountability, mutual learning, and strategic planning. Today and tomorrow is one of those four times.... Read more

Strength Training Recovery Meals--Any Ideas?

Wednesday, September 23, 2009      0 comments

Over the last several weeks I have become much more serious about adding strength training into the mix of my pursuit of health. I am an avid cyclist and understand all I need to about post-ride recovery meals but I've been wondering if there's ... Read more

Getting Close to 212

Tuesday, September 22, 2009      2 comments

I've been on a plateau for months now. Going from 242 to 218 was relatively easy, the pounds just flew off. I was feeling great, cycling like a maniac, eating well, and enjoying life. So I was pretty surprised when I realized that, though I was ... Read more

Things are well, I'm on the right track, it's my day off and I'm lazy, can't think of anything to say--BUT I want my points! Been there, done that?... Read more

I Fell Asleep While Writing This Blog!

Sunday, September 20, 2009      0 comments

So it's Sunday afternoon. I had a great day of worship and learning and fellowship at church followed by a good lunch at a local Chinese joint (Chinese is my favorite), and then I laid down to rest, watch a little football (football's my favorit... Read more

Lower Body Today but the Core is Still Sore!

Saturday, September 19, 2009      1 comments

Today's my day to workout the lower body but I'm not sure how hard I'm going to go because my core is still pretty sore from my workout two days ago. I've never intensely worked out those muscles before (abs, obliques, lower back) and at 42 I th... Read more
