Wakin' up Wednesday!

Good Morning!!

How are you this morning?

This week is so crazy and I'm kinda enjoying it but I'm sure it would get old fast.  My boys day care is out for this week, so I'm enjoying having them and not having to wake up and rush out the door to get to "school" and then off to work.  (but I'm not looking forward to next week when they want to stay with mommy). . . my heart is breaking already.

My hubby is a police officer and is currently on night shift and it's been rough.  (I am completely spoiled about him helping me, when he can, but when he's on night shift - um, its nada.) I am seriously praying for a new position within his department, to open that will be M-F, day shift.  - God says he cares about our requests!! (thank you Lord!)

So the boys are watching cartoons this morning and I have weighed, cleaned up the kitchen (from last night) - a bit of a pet peeve of mine. . . Eric eats at night after I go to bed and I hate waking up to a dirty kitchen! And you know he has to use every dish . . . sigh. . . but - no worries, I got his back.  

Where was I? Oh yeah, - I have weighed, cleaned the kitchen and have eaten some yummy oatmeal.

What? You wanna know how my weight did. . . well - even after one day I'm pleased to say I have dropped 2 lbs.  I'm sure it's water weight, but I don't care - it's in the right direction!!! Who woulda thought I would be excited about 195 but I am. . . it's one step closer!! (Thank you Jesus for weight loss!) And again - I am determined to eat well and kick some calories off!

I have praise practice tonight and a women's group that I will be attending tonight so I always look forwards to Wednesdays.  I have joined the Praise Team at our Church and it is such a delight - truly - to be on the team.  What awesome peeps to sing with and praise our King!!

I do have a quick prayer request:
I have a sweet, wonderful friend that is going through a wonderful but intense, year long program called Mission Messiah to claim victory over her life and battles with Jesus!  She has been there three weeks (working on 4, I think) and I just love her so much and want to do everything I can to support her and love on her! If you have some extra time - please be in prayer for her.  - I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers for her!!

In other news - Our life group (small groups from church) had 7 be baptized last night!! AWESOME!! I'm sad that I wasn't able to make it and rejoice with my sweet life group family but I'm in celebration just the same.  Can't you imagine the angels rejoicing, in celebration, over their act of faithfulness in being baptized?  AH-MAZING!

Okay, peeps.  I'm gonna get up and get these crazy boys dressed and head over to my mom's to swim.

See ya'll later!!

Takin' on Tuesday

Whew!! What a day, right!?!  It has been a long day for me.

Some accomplishments that I did get done today:

1) Work out - it was hard! but felt sooooo good. (glad it's done!)

2) I ate GOOD today! I am so proud of myself.  For some this may be no big deal to you but to me, it's huge.  I have a REALLY bad habit of starting the day off well and then ending it terrible calorie-wise.  Not today, sugar face! I rock my 1200 calories and that was all.  (taking a bow) thank you, thank you, thank you.

3) Work - Is it me or is work just crazy booming?  Which is AWESOME but keeps me flying around by the seat of my pants to get things signed, paid, take payment, invoice, payroll. . it goes on and on.  I'm praising the Lord for it! We need it!!

4) I drank all my water today. . . I got in half of my weight in ounces down!! That's ALOT!

5) I did my American duty - I voted and I'll tell you later how things come out but for now, I'm a proud American.

6) I told my husband and my children that I love them today.  (I strive to do that everyday, but I don't want it to fall through the cracks, ya know?)

How's your day going?

I am starting back on my weight loss journey and have decided I should blog more. . . I have missed going back and reading and decided to write here.

I'm scared to tell you of fear of judgement but I'm going to just blurt it out and cover my eyes. . . .I weigh . . . Lord, help me overcome my fear and help my friends keep their judgments to their selves.

I weighed 197 today.  (take deep breaths and tears fall down my face)

I ride such a crappy roller coaster on my weight and I have decided I will take control day by day.  But I feel overwhelmed looking at the long haul.  So I'm setting a 10 lb. goal.  Please join me in prayer!! Pray that I make healthy, good meal choices and keep my butt moving!!

I don't feel like I look that heavy but when I see myself in the mirror or pictures, I am surprised.  I am much thinner in my head.

So I have put my junk in the light - there ya have it.  God can bring beauty from ashes and I'm beautiful - that I do know.  I am beautiful in His sight, even with my curves and cellulite but I want to be healthy and honorable to myself and my body - this temple and shell He has given to me.

So let's get this party started!! Day 1 - done!

(please be kind - I'm more tender hearted than I look)
