I for one, am glad to see September in my rear view mirror..
Though as time goes on, I will probably find this month to be pivotal.
We never appreciate our hard times the way we should..
So, on with the format:
I didn't weigh in this month...and my weigh in this morning left me virtually the same.
I find I am ready to drop the pounds.
October is my month for some more weight loss .
So 146.5 by October 31rst.
In september, I turned my attention from the food to my life.
I will discuss that below.
You will notice me not joining challenges.
I have enough challenges.
I will simply go back to eating what I was eating while dropping the pounds.
Turkey sausage, here I come...just had some tonight as a matter of fact.
I did a 3 mile walk and did a half hour of jack lalanne lower body toning.
This month was a struggle here.
fitting everything back into the puzzle after I had stripped so much out over the last year and a half,
while dealing with the mother of all funks...that was interesting to say the least.
but, it was illuminating.
Thought for the day:
My consistent exercise saved my bacon this month.
Back to being consistent with the food, while holding the line on all the other things I have included in my life.
My new church.
My daily bible reading.
My fridays with my oldest after school...(don't know If I talked about this..I started this about a month ago as well...I go to barnes and nobles after I pick her up and we hang out for about an hour and a half...It's a good way to spend time together and talk. )
on to the newest thing I am incorporating
A day of rest.
I don't actually have one right now.
I manage to fill up every day with work, work, work.
I will be doing a full on day of rest, on Sunday.
I will be going to church but I won't be:
Bill paying..cleaning out cars, having people over, doing yard work, pondering the complexities of the universe or anything else.
I will hang out with God, and then my family.
We may end up at the park...who knows...
I will put my food in the crockpot the night before for dinner the next day....eat simple breakfasts with paper plates...sandwiches for lunch and the crockpot meal for dinner. The most I'll be doing is popping open some biscuits from a can.
If the amish can do it...the hardest working people out there.
I can do it.
If the orthodox Jews can do it.
I can do it.
Six days shalt thou labor (tomorrow is going to be Bill paying, grocery shopping, homeschool planning, pre make the sunday dinner and finish cleaning..)
I just have to make it a decision.
Like my eating healthy and my exercise.
Two years ago I decided that, and here I am.
One month ago I decided to draw..and I am drawing.
Three days ago I decided to have a day of rest.
That is what I am doing.
A day dedicated to God.
A day spent with my family, letting my stress gooooooo....lol.
Tomorrow will be my last posting for the week..and I am thinking of starting a new series..
Instead of Saturday Snark....I think I will be doing Saturdays with Jack lalanne.
I love this guy.
He is positive, and we need positivity so badly.
He is spot on about diet and exercise..he is an encourager...and a good way to start your week...so when people drop on by on my Sundays off blogging, they will see a positive, encouraging post.
I am choosing to be an optimist from here on out.
Have a good Friday everyone!
See you all tomorrow.
