"I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions." -- Stephen Covey This quote came up in the suggestions when I entered the title box. It seems appropriate for how I feel this morning. I look at the food log for to... Read more
Don't look in the rearview mirror!

Personally, I prefer planners where the week starts on Sunday; it makes more sense to me. But, to restart my plan to be more fit and lose weight, Monday is a great start day! I can't count the number of times I've restarted. I don't wa... Read more
Blood work doesn't lie
Tuesday, August 28, 2018      3 comments

Yesterday I saw my doctor for a yearly check up and found out that my blood sugar was a little high. Not high enough to be diabetic, but high enough to take note. And high enough to force me to make changes. So this morning, instead of sit... Read more
Tracking license plates as well as steps!
Wednesday, January 31, 2018      2 comments

One of things I love about living near a military base is seeing license plates from all over the country, and, actually, I have seen some from overseas as well! Tonight I took a walk as it wasn't too cold (in the 40's, I think) and I wanted to ... Read more

Today I printed out the list of suggestions for snacks from this article:

Day 5 (I think!) of Snack Challenge
Friday, January 19, 2018      0 comments

Well, yesterday I had great plans, but gave in to pretzels, chips and a doughnut at the end of the day. The good thing is that it was only end of the day snacking rather than all day snacking. And I did drink more water. Today the challenge... Read more
Snack challenge
Thursday, January 18, 2018      2 comments

What better place to record my challenges than in a blog post? I have been on the snack challenge for a while. I have forgotten the actual name because I haven't been looking at it. At all. I haven't even been thinking about it. However, if... Read more
God answers prayers in unexpected ways
Monday, January 01, 2018      3 comments

Happy new year to you all! I praise God for bringing all of us to this point. Oh, the plans He has for us! Yesterday, as my husband was preaching at church about what God has done in 2017 and what He will do in 2018, I had a revelation abou... Read more
Confirmation from God for the Mind Shift
Thursday, August 17, 2017      3 comments

The very day I wrote the last blog about the Mind Shift--THAT VERY NIGHT--I opened the You Version Bible App and read from a devotional with excerpts from Joyce Meyer's "Ending Your Day Right." This is what I read: "Discipline is your frien... Read more
The Mind Shift
Tuesday, August 15, 2017      5 comments

Last night was a breaking point for me. I can't take my rings off. Not that I want to, but I couldn't take them off if I had to. I have gained so much weight that they won't come off my fingers. Something. Has. To. Change. They say tha... Read more
OK. Really. I need to do this.
Saturday, January 21, 2017      1 comments

Discipline. That's my word for 2017. Not that I've been very good at working on it. So, I need to begin really focusing on it. If I looked back at my blogs, I would see an awful lot of entries saying, "This is it," or "I'm starting aga... Read more
Not just a New Year's Resolution!
Tuesday, December 27, 2016      1 comments

I have been only barely active on SparkPeople, just logging in long enough to track exercise so I keep up my "90 minutes of activity a week" streak. Sometimes the exercise was only cleaning the house. Haha! Back in May I ended my membership... Read more
Time for a fresh perspective
Monday, October 03, 2016      0 comments

The other day I read a blog about fasting, pointing out that fasting is expected of us, for Jesus said "when" you fast, not "if" you fast. I think I had forgotten about that. It's time to fast. It's time to shift my focus from myself and my desi... Read more
Am I Hungry? Part 1
Friday, June 10, 2016      1 comments

I just got back from an annual conference. We stay with friends so it's more like a retreat/vacation, and I do a lot of walking since parking is limited. One day I walked 27,104 steps! Because I got so much exercise, I didn't worry about WH... Read more
New Challenge: Am I Hungry?
Friday, June 03, 2016      2 comments

I haven't done a challenge for a week or so--my own challenge that I blog about that is. I've been doing the "28 Day Home Workout Challenge" because I cancelled my gym membership (long story for another time) and wanted to prove to myself that I... Read more
