Agenda for week one while away from SparkPeople

Sunday, August 03, 2008

First thing to report is that Andrew and I had a wonderful Sabbath. We went to church and had a great sermon and learned something new. We stayed for potluck and fellowshipped for about an hour with our family and then had a lazy afternoon of blissful rest.

Honestly I don't think most of us get enough rest, especially with working as hard as we do. To do nothing but stay in the Spirit and rest for a solid 24 hours is the best gift I think God gave to us next to His Son. It's the best gift we can give to ourselves, and our mind and body need it.

Tomorrow is Sunday, the first day of the week. Andrew is in bed because on Sunday's he works from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. instead of the grueling 3 p.m. to 5 a.m. the rest of his work week, and I'm taking the opportunity to check in with my plans for the week.

Monday through Friday moringings I will be going to the pool to do my workout routines including 50+ jumping jacks I committed to doing for my 50+ jumping jacks group...Dawn are you reading this??? :)

I will be walking a mile or more on those days as well as getting in all my strength training and cardio done. I also will be doing all the exercises that I have listed on my page from my 1 ton group, so you can see I'll be busy and have no intentions of slacking fact as the weight comes off and I feel better, I'll be doing more. If I'm lucky, I'll be upstairs in the gym with the workout equipment and weights by this time next year. I will eat a hearty oatmeal breakfast with fruit before I go, and have a lovely salad with tuna or some other fish and another helping of fruit, and then begin my home chores.

It is during the hours that I would be online posting in all my groups that I will be seeing doctors, organizing our home and taking care of the essentials I've let slide for far too long. No matter what though, I'll find the time to blog at least once at the end or beginning of each week to report in. I'm thankful, oh so very thankful, that I have such kind and loving friends who care as much about me as I do them.

Wishing everybody a glorious week full of blessings and successes each day!

Goodnight for now, and sweet dreams...

    Glad that you are getting in your much needed rest and family time. It looks as if you have it all planned out and I just look forward to those times when you can get on and blog and let us know how things are going.

    Praying for you Pami, as you take some time to do what has been piling up on you. I understand the frustrations of that. Glad you are still committed to doing the spark thing, and to letting us hold you accountable : ). God Bless, Jenni
    P.S. My husband and I are big advocates of that day of rest for the body and the soul.

    Dear Pami, What a beautiful blog and a beautiful way to spend the Sabbath. Mine is Sunday, and I love to Praise the Lord in morning worship, and learn more about Him in Sunday School. Our lesson this week taught by our Pastor was that God Chose Us, we didn't chose Him. What an awesome thought that He loves us so much.

    Sundays are laid back for me too. I try not to do any housework except the essentials..make our bed and do the dishes. I get a lot of reading done that day as well. Now I have to start planning the 12 week study I'll be leading this fall on our Monday night class at church. The Title is 12 Steps For Christians. I believe God is guiding me to do this. Pastor agrees with me. I am excited about it.

    God Bless you, my dear Sister and friend. You have my e-mail. Please send me something once in a while! Love you emoticon
