First Spring Soccer Practice..

Went well yesterday! My boy did a great job, and was so excited to see his friend Britney. They were so cute together and had a great time.

I was really proud of my boy for getting out there and having fun and even scoring a goal during one of their games at the end. It was pretty cold (50) but they had a great time!

Finally better!

Phew, that was a loooong week of being sick and blah. I went to my regular Doctor yesterday, becuase, in spite of my week long Z-pack, my throat still felt like rusty razor blades were slicing my throat every time I swallowed. I ate badly yesterday and had 2 banana pudding milkshakes from chickfila. They have like 20 points a piece. So good and cold on my throat though. Anyway, my Doctor said that Zpacks just don't work very well anymore, and gave me a new antibiotic and today I feel 100% better. I think tomorrow I can get to the gym and spin. I haven't worked out since our last hike on the 19th! Wow, I need to step it up. So excited for my son tonight, he has real outdoor soccer practice. I hope its warm enough and I hope there are no tears and he just goes and has fun.

On the mend and good news!

Starting to feel better today..

I have two great things to share, first.. I've lost 30 pounds since December. Thank you Lord for blessing me. The difference is God. I can't do it on my own. Second, we started our group at church for youth ministry. I'm very excited to be starting the Teen Youth group. I know God has called me to lead his youth.

I am so excited! More later..

7.5 mile hike

Yesterday morning I did a body combat class. It was great, much like turbo, but I didn't love it as much as turbo.. anyway, I burned about 500 calories during that class.

Today, we hiked 7.5 miles and about 40 minutes faster than last week. 1100 calories burned.

I've reached my first goal..

In about 3 months, I've lost 25 pounds! I am .25 of my goal of 100 pounds lost.

I haven't worked out since Saturday, our hike, because I've had a bit of a cold. However, today I did go to the gym and did a 60 minute spin class, burned 500 calories. I bought a kit at walmart, Jillian Michaels kettlebell set. I'm going to do some kettlebells in the morning before work.

Still worried about my husbands family in Japan. He claims its ok in Tokyo.. :(

So sleepy.

I could honestly just go home and go back to bed and sleep all day. I'm on the verge of sleep at my desk! Not good! I don't know why.. I was in bed by 11 and got up at 6.

I did pretty good yesterday, ended up around 1100 calories..
Went to the gym and did 30 minutes on the arc trainer and 20 on the elliptical for 450 calories burned. I was really sweating!!

God is GREAT!

Our women's conference was awesome and amazing. "Women Working the Word".

Our speakers were just absolutely wonderful. Even though they didn't know each other, their sermons totally meshed. It was a very busy, awesome weekend.

One Pastor in particular, Pastor Ericka Sanders from North Carolina. Pastor Ericka is this tiny, beautiful woman, but what a powerful voice for God. I asked her to pray over me, and I could feel the Holy Spirit in my gut. I felt such a connection to her. I think I'm going to send her a card. Both Kevin and I just loved her so much.

I am so grateful for what God is doing in our lives! Thank you God! Thank you for the changes in my husband. He's done a complete 180.. at times I just can't believe it. He is totally on fire for the Lord, it is amazing. I am in complete awe. I love the change in myself too. I am starting to feel such joy and happiness. I don't want to feel negative any longer. I want to feel happy about myself and my life. I don't want to hinder my blessings ever again. I want blessings to persue me and overtake me. I am trusting in God. I feel so happy when my son tells me his prayer, "God is great".. its so adorable. Our whole family is building Kingdom relationships at church.. and I'm finding some at work too. I'm even learning how to rebuild relationships with my family and old friends. I am feeling so excited about how God is using my family for his Kingdom. I just love where my church is going and I know that one day soon, we will be able to be employed full time with church.

I ran on Friday: 1 minute walk, 2 minute jog for the first 20.. then 1 walk, 1 run for another 14. It was SO hard, but its getting easier. I can't wait until I can run for 30 minutes straight.

I wasn't on track with eating, really, but I barely had much time to think about it. I will be better this week, thank you God! I'm sort of on a plateau right now, but that is fine with me. I'm still down 21 pounds and that is better than where I was in December. Praise you God! Also, my clothes are barely hanging on, so I know I've lost a lot of inches. I am so thankful.

Tired again..

"Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength." - Nehemiah 8:10..

I can't wait until our women's conference this Saturday. It will be amazing, thank you Father!

I am learning SO much. Thank you Jesus for answering my prayers.

Something my Pastor keeps reiterating is how unless you are really studied, you will keep praying and living your life the same way year after year, problem after problem. You have to believe in your prayers, and you have to make changes in your life in order to get there. His testimony Sunday was that, after about 4 years on blood pressure and cholesterol medication, he was finally able to stop all medication. But in that, he had to make some changes. He had to stop eating fried foods, he had to exercise.. We have to make changes in order to reap the benefits and that things can be hindering our prayers being answered. What a revelation to me. I am changing my life, and I am changing me.

My cals were a bit high today. I was really ravenous. I ate a lean cuisine meal, and I feel like that is partly to blame. I also had like 5 dark chocolates. I have to stay OUT of the candy!

40 minutes spin class today, 350 cals burned. It was a great class and I was soaked!
