My Hubby is soon to return!
Saturday, April 10, 2010      5 comments

I leave for Nairobi in 9 days. Don arrives in 10. We have been apart for about one month now. I am ready to be back with my husband. I let that longing turn me towards food this week. I think I gained a couple of pounds, but realised what I... Read more

Praise God for normal. No more flea bites to count or toilets to find. It was a challenge to figure out what to do, but finally have the victory. I lost weight last... Read more
Feeling Human again!
Monday, April 05, 2010      3 comments

This is just a quick hello to let all my friends here know that I am better. I had a great workout today and have not had one emergency run to the throne since early this morning. I do have fleas eating me alive. The rains combined with dogs ... Read more
Trying to get over the flu
Saturday, April 03, 2010      5 comments

This week has been a week of losing weight, but it isn't because of my hard work, but because of the flu. I got tested for malaria yesterday- thank God it was negative. I can't leave the house today because of issues with my stomach. I had a ... Read more
Why do we let the scale dictate our feelings?
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      9 comments

On top of the mountain when the scale is moving down. In the pit of dispair when it goes up. I stayed in my caloric zone and have been execising, doing everything I know to do. Still, I know my body. I knew certain times of the month, I do u... Read more

"Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and for the gospel's, who shall not receive a hundred-fold now in this time- houses and brothers an... Read more
Looking Unto Jesus
Friday, March 26, 2010      10 comments

Simple things bring such pleasure. Yesterday- no electricity or internet. Today- we have both. It is such a different lifestyle here in Africa. Learning patience in all things. Finding out that I am stronger than I think and weaker than I k... Read more
Rain Down!
Wednesday, March 24, 2010      3 comments

The rain of Tanzania has started with strength. It rains so hard that you can't even hear anything. I love it. It is so relaxing. I feel back in the groove of things. Don is still in the USA for another month. He felt to fast, so I am doin... Read more
I feel so out of sorts
Monday, March 22, 2010      5 comments

Maybe it is the fact that I just spent 8 months in the USA. It just may be the family issues we had to go through after Don's father passed away. When I say that things were crazy, I am not being dramatic. Don and I had to live temporaril... Read more
3rd day in Africa
Friday, March 19, 2010      2 comments

Here I am again. Thinking about food choices and what to do about the lack of energy to work out. Decided it was important to let my body recover from the trip and see if my feet are not swollen tomorrow. Never had a problem with swollen ankl... Read more
Back in Africa
Thursday, March 18, 2010      7 comments

It was an adventure the last 8 months. I have to say that all in all I didn't do horribly bad on furlough. I think I had more healthy eating days than the opposite. Today is my first day back in Tanzania. The travel was not bad, but started ... Read more

I leave in 14 days to get back to the mission work in Tanzania. Stress eating has been up and down like a roller-coaster. Feeling like I am getting closer to the end of thi... Read more
Damage control before I take off for Tanzania
Friday, February 19, 2010      7 comments

I gained some weight from stress eating. What on earth is stressing me out these days? The Bryant family house sold, which is good, but meant we had to move out in 2 weeks time. We moved stuff to a new apartment, moved stuff to a storage ... Read more
Weightloss Update
Thursday, December 17, 2009      5 comments

It has been a little over a month since beginning my Atkins lifestyle again. I have lost about 14 pounds in that time. It is hard to know exactly how much I lost, because the scale I started with was not accurate and very hard to read exact nu... Read more
