Week end weigh in 15

This week I must have hit a place my in weight loss journey that has got me recognized. I have had the sweetest compliments from friends about how good I am looking. As much as the words make me feel good, it also reminds me to be humble. I love feeling good and looking good because I am losing weight, but I want to make sure that I focus on the reason I started this journey in the first place. That is to be a good role model to my children and to be VERY frank!! To still wipe my own bottom at the age 80! Haha TMI…I know, but I am serious!

 

I continue to pray that God keeps me grounded reminding me that when you are smaller in body statue, that can lead to smaller clothes, and with that inappropriateness. I am first and foremost a daughter of God and second a wife to an amazing husband...

One word…..Vacation! It is amazing to me how much our lives revolve around food and family, food and fun, food and vacations! We just got back from a wonderful trip to Arizona to see Noah’s brothers and their families. As much as I planned my food before we went, it was inevitable that I was going to fall short of my calories in and calories out. Fortunately my amazing sister in law help me prepare by getting me a pass to her gym. I do not use a gym nor have I been to one in over a year…and that was just once! I used to belong to a local gym but found that I was wasting a lot of money because I would just eat right through my workouts.

So more schedule went a little like this…..

Thursday morning before we left, I did a Jillian workout, then Friday we headed to the gym for an hour long spin...

What a wonderful week! I have absolutely fallen in love with running! I never thought I would say those words, but I have! I’m not sure if I’ve shared this before but last year I so desperately wanted to run… Be a runner! My shins were in so much pain that I had to stop running all together. Well I let my body heal and 9 months later tried again. Now I could have started before that I know, but it was the holidays and I was happy being unhealthy and eating whatever I wanted… Well not really, but you get the point!

I started again this past January and my shins no longer hurt and my body wanted it just as badly as my heart does. This past week I have past a milestone by running 4.5 miles. My friend Rachael helped me accomplish that goal. She too has lost a ton of weight by running...

New Adventure

A few weeks ago I was asked to write on a fabulous blog called Coffee with Christ. It consists of 7 ladies, all in different walks of life. Each lady has a day that they get to share what God has placed on their hearts. I am so excited yet nervous to begin something like this. As you know I have a passion for teenage girls and even though these are women writing, the majority of the readers are 18-25. This opportunity gives me the chance to share more about purity and courting through God’s eyes. I will be sharing on here what I write over there each week, however feel free to come by and check out the much more talented group of writers though. It’s at coffeewithchristdevotional.blogspot.com!

Here was my first post

“Hi Ladies,

   I am so excited to be joining this amazing cast of ladi...

Week end weigh in 12

Sometimes it seems so easy, and sometimes it seems super hard! For some reason the beginning of the week seems so simple. I usually lose about 3 pounds between Sunday and Wednesday and then my body seems to like stop! Which, three pounds a week, well it’s my goal. This week though for some reason I gained back two pounds. This week was a whopping 1.2 pounds lost, but hey I didn’t gain.

I did change something up a little. Noah and I watch a great documentary called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. It was great and I loved watching it. It geared Noah and I up for some juicing. Now when I used to think of juicing, I used to think Juice it up, or Jamba juice. Delicious and full of….sugar! Well this was a different type of juice. Any fruit and any vegetable juice...
