Safe. Regular. Planned. Normal. Comfort. Routine. Those are all words I like. They make me feel good. I’m the kind of girl who likes to know what’s going on and if there’s a change, give me time to adapt to it. I don’t mean 5 minutes, 24 hours at least, please. When I’m going out… Continue reading My Word for 2014
It’s two more days until the new year. There is one more week of vacation. But that’s not going to stop me. I’m starting today. I actually started last night, by having a goal to get up, exercise, and read God’s word. I took action. I got my exercise clothes ready, went to bed at… Continue reading Start Today
This was my first week joining the Living and Active challenge and it was a tough one. The goals were relatively easy, but life was hard. Right now my husband is working full-time, taking a couple of seminary courses, and trying to be a good dad and husband. I am teaching, momming, wifing, blogging, trying… Continue reading Just Trying to Survive
There was one picture I wanted to take last year, because it was evidence of my goal achievements. Then, before I had time to make a blog post of it, I felt the need to take a blogging break and never posted it. Last week was my 15th wedding anniversary, so I thought now was… Continue reading #15×15 Check-in: 15 Years and it Fits!
This weekend I finished my 9 week C25k training. I am now able to jog for a full 30 minutes! It actually took me a few extra weeks, with hot weather, sickness, etc., but I did it! I finished, but I’m not done. I can’t just stop now that I’ve completed the training. I need… Continue reading #15×15 Check-in: Finished, but not Done
Last week my family had a family reunion in Kansas. We drove 9 hours to get there. Before I left I had thought about how this would affect my goals and really wanted to try keeping them away from home. There are many difficulties in being away from home and trying to lose weight. One… Continue reading #15×15 Weekly Check-in: Eating Well While Away From Home?
If you missed it last week, I’m starting a new challenge for myself and your welcome to join me and others in Losing 15 by the 15th. We’re one week in and here’s how I did on my monthly goals. Drinking 72 oz. of water a day. 5 days of meeting this goal which is… Continue reading #15×15 Weekly Check-In: How to Make Goals Well
My house is full of books. When I have any spare moments, I love to take that time to read. So, naturally I want to take this hobby of mine and use it to increase my JOY. Being that I don’t have a lot of extra time for reading, I want to be sure that… Continue reading Reading for JOY
This year I am working towards Joy. I know that if I am going to live out this word, JOY, I need God as my foundation. He is the creator of Joy and has given me joy through the fruits of the spirit.(Gal. 5:22) I need to realize He is where I get my joy,… Continue reading Finding Joy in God
Do you ever wish you had a few minutes to yourself to wake up, before the kids came jumping into your bed each morning? I always do. I am not a “morning person”. I love my sleep and I really dislike being awoken, even if it is by my angelic children. But I am starting… Continue reading Hello Mornings
