This is the Day the Lord has Made

Thursday, September 29, 2011

This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it! emoticon I got up with exercising on my mind. I came into the living room and did nineteen minutes on my Wii Fit Plus. I know, you are saying "That isn't much." It is for me when I haven't exercised is several months. I have to get started sometime, somehow. I know to get to feeling better, I must exercise. I just have to do a little at a time.

I want to ask you all a question. How do you plan your meals? I always have had trouble doing this. I want to plan a month's meals, or at least a week, at a time. That way, I know what we are going to eat and what to buy at the grocery store. Our money is limited, so I don't need to keep going to the grocery store every few days and buying this or that. I need to say, okay, this is what we are eating this week; this is what we need. We have meat. I need to add healthy vegetables and fruit with it. It is hard knowing what to buy and what to do with it to make it tasty and healthy. My problem: I love to eat!!! I am gaining weight, and so is hubby. We aren't losing it.

I want to lose weight and get healthy. I am going to do this. With God's help and the support of my Spark friends, I can do this. I am reading my Bible more lately and plan to continue. I have fallen down so hard on doing this and on going to church. I hate that! I was raised by a preacher, so I know the importance of reading my Bible and attending church. I have failed God and myself. I will get better. :D

I hope all is going well with my spark peeps. I am feeling better. The nose is getting better daily, the toe is improving daily. My fibromylagia seems to be steady as long as I don't do too much at a time. My rheumatologist added 600 mg of Ibuprophen three times a day this month for my arthritis pain. I have felt well enough this week to work on a quilt three days in a row. I plan to work on it some today, too.

Keep me in your prayers and thoughts as we go on this journey together. I will do the same for you. May God bless you all!!

    Hi T., I'm sorry I haven't checked in with you for awhile. I just happened to catch a Joel Osteeen sermon yesterday on t.v. on the message, I am _________ and filling the blank with only positive loving messages. As far as eating healthy: my boyfriend eats basically the same thing every day... He makes a big pot of 3/4 brown rice and 1/4 wild rice for the week and then adds fresh steamed veggies (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, a slice of sweet potato, a slice of onion, a garlic, or whatever you have on hand) and then whatever he has grilled, chicken or beef or fish... good luck, simple, tasty, healthy.. you can do it! Happy Thanksgiving!
