Friday, October 16, 2009      0 comments

This morning I read the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapters 60-66. These words from 66:1-6 in particular moved me: 1 "Thus says the LORD: 'Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me... Read more

I so look forward to having a more normal week this week especially because it means that I will be able to sleep well all week--Lord willing. It's amazing how much sleep effects ones desire to eat well or not, and I can use some improvement in ... Read more

Wow, was I surprised to see the white landscape this morning! I haven't been watching the news lately and, though I had heard about the possibility, I wasn't thinking much about snow--after all it's only Oct 12! But there it is. I think we must ... Read more

Working Way Too Much

Sunday, October 11, 2009      2 comments

I've been working way too much lately and it's not good for the diet. I find it so easy to revert to old habits when I get this busy and I hate that. Thankfully, the next several weeks look much more normal and boy am I ready for it. I've worked... Read more

Going Backwards

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

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

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
