Week One, Day Four

I'm feeling kind of alone here. Wyndy and Wanda have been sick (get well fast girls) and Alexis is probably being her usual busy bee self. I'll be glad when I hear from you all again. My muscles in my legs are mad at me today for what I put them through yesterday. They will get over it. They better because I am going to put them through it again tomorrow probably. I keep telling myself to go for a walk today but, so far.......... I'm not listening.
I am having a hard time staying at this level in the study. I want to rush ahead and see what comes next but, I know I need to take it one day at a time and do the bible reading and soak up what I need to learn right here where I am right now. It is different for me to set goals for change and not for weight loss. It's hard to not plan how I will lose X amount of pounds in X amount of time. But, I like the idea of tracking change. That is good.

Ps. 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in Him and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song I will praise him.

God Is Impressing on Me That
I'm not hearing much of anything today. Is that normal?

I've Shared With the Lord That
That I am in this for keeps.

My Thoughts Today Are
Good thoughts are not really coming easy today. My mind seems to be flitting here and there and some thoughts of the past are trying to creep in but I don't let them stay. I feel a little off my feed today. (Not to be confused with off my rocker). I was in the van driving to pick up kids and those old memories starting tormenting me. I started praying and before I knew it I was there and had someone in the van to talk to.

Breakfast: Watermelon
Lunch: Turkey sandwich, cucumber, carrot and milk
Supper: a chocolate milkshake
Snack: watermelon

None. My muscles were sore and I couldn't get motivated to make them hurt worse.

Goal reminder:
Replace Coke with water and juice.
*Note* I have not had a Coke for 3 days.


  1. Yay, good for you. That's probably why you are having a difficult time with your thought processes, withdrawal. I don't like that you only had a milk shake for supper. It just doesn't seem like enough of a healthy boost so your body can sleep and heal all night. Now, that's just my personal opinion, if you think that that is what God is telling you to eat, then ok. If you haven't been exercising consistently for awhile then it is better to exercise every other day. Your muscles need time to heal because when they are exercised, they get little tears in them.

    Now, to your comments on my blog entry about loving your body. I once went through a course where we had to stand in front of a full length mirror, naked and find good things to say. Yeah, RIGHT! ROFLOL.

  2. You are right about the milk shake I think. I was out running around and for some reason I felt like I really wanted a chocolate milk shake. I knew it was high cal so I decided that would be my supper. It would have been better if it had been a Boost drink or something I guess.
    I didn't know that about muscles having little tears in them. Interesting! I remember the standing in front of the mirror naked thing. I did that once. Just once and that was enough for me!

  3. Hi Sheri. Sorry I haven't been around. It's been a busy week and really great one actually. You two are talking way over my head about muscle tears and such. lol I'll try to be better about coming here Sheri, though I will be away for 4 days and won't get on the puter at all. Hang in there girlfriend. HUGSSSSSS
