Today it was time to make the two calls I needed to make. Both calls went quite well, although the second call just involved my giving information.. therefore I'm now waiting for another call...

Cryptic? Yes. But suffice to say these calls concern an intergral part of my journey to improve upon my well being and help me on the road to be all that God calls me to be.

Sorry... just had to take a break from blogging to perform my sometimes necessary role as a HAZMAT crew member after my sleepwalking son visited the bathroom....

I did however have a tangible breakthrough today. Well, breakthrough may be a little strong and a little premature, but I exercised today. Yup I did! Something that I haven't done in years. Did I say years? I mean, YEARS!! It wasn't for long and it sure wasn't pretty - but I did it. First day down.. how many days does it take to make something a habit? 30?

But the truth of it is... it was hard.

Harder than I expected it to be. I know that I am very overweight. I know that I am out of shape. I know that I'm not getting any younger. I know that this body has suffered a few injuries in the past. But I didn't know it would be this hard. I really thought I could do better. I didn't realize I would have to keep going back to the low intensity because I flat out couldn't do the higher intensity stuff. But then I have to remind myself, it's only day one. I can't change what's past, but I can move in a positive direction for the future. And I can do it! Luke 1:37 - 'For nothing is impossible with God'

I have a few more things to do before bed. I need to make sure I get enough rest to tackle my morning exercise routine. (see that - positive thinking - I'm calling it a 'routine'.)

So now IT'S TIME... to finish setting up for my little friends tomorrow.


  1. I'm so proud of you! I think this blog is a great idea. As you know, I've followed a weight loss blog (ronisweigh.com) for years and it is such an inspiration to me. I also know that blogging was (and still is) an important tool for Roni to keep up her healthy lifestyle. She also started Blog To Lose - you may want to check that out too.
    Don't worry about having to do the low intensity, be proud of yourself for doing something! If you stay with it, you'll see improvment, and the high intensity will get easier. I'm sure you know all of this already. But stay positive! You did something good for yourself and that's what counts!
    I'm right there with you in the daily struggle to stay healthy. Just take one step at a time ~ you can do it!

  2. Thanks so much Stacey - your support means a lot!!! I will check out that blog. Thank you!!
