You see, my problem has always been that I do one and not the other.....either eat great and not exercise...or exercise great and eat...well...like crap...and it does not work..
I know I am not the only one that does this and I even know that it does not work...yet year after year...I do the same thing even though I know that it only works when you do it AT THE SAME TIME...
"Pickin' up what I am puttin' down???"
Totally reminds me of this verse from Romans 7:15
"...I don't really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don't do it. Instead, I do what I hate."
So I joined Weight Watchers last Wednesday.
I have a goal....and Weight Watchers is one of my steps.
It keeps me accountable...keeps me on track...and after one week...
I lost one pound!
Okay, so not thrilled about only one pound BUT....one is better than none..or better than gaining...and I have to tell you, the reward for eating good & healthy and staying on track AND EXCERCISING at the same time makes me feel like I have lost 10 pounds!!!!
So one down...many to go....goals that is...and pounds...amongst other things...
Creating my Soul Restoration 2 projects and really, I mean REALLY loving itReading a book and struggling a time bit to get through it...but highlighting, underlining and quoting from it...
Workingon a new project with the Women's Ministry leadership team at Church for the Fall..I am blessed to be part of such an incredible team with an amazing leader...
Exercising every day..and tomorrow completes week one of Weight Watchers!!!! I had a bag, yes, an entire bag of microwave popcorn last night..with M&M's in it..and it still was under my point umbrella...but this morning I am feeling a little crappy...like a popcorn hangover..I do not even really like popcorn that much...won't be doing that again!
is one of my most favorite days and I am certain that if I could bottle up the emotions, energy and excitement from June 23, 2007 and sell it...I would be a BILLIONAIRE. Happy 4th Anniversary Babe..I LOVE you (I am pretending that he is reading this!!!)
Today Ben had his last day of Elementary School and I am pretty sure that he just started Kindergarten... Not too sure I am digesting the flying time very well..I am going to take a little summer kick-off break...like two days...to get things in order, "make a plan" and get a grip!
Two days till school is out for the summer...(insert Hallelujah chorus) and then long creative filled days ahead....non-stop!
Thirty more days until Ben gets cast #2 off... and then we can hit the beach...with a bag of felt and a umbrella, of course! Fourteen days till 4th of July...(new fabric to make something!) Looking forward to the long creative days of summer.....
