Been a few days since I posted on here...sorry...but now I'm caught up!

February 24th, 08
Today I am TIRED! Chris and I did go work out and met with Lori about the nutrition stuff. I think that she thinks I’m right on with my foods for the most part but she wants Chris to change his. Things are good. I think I’m going to bed extra early tonight! God is good!

February 25th, 08
Chris and I went to the gym as usual. But Chris went to Pinnacle and I went to Fitness since I had a meeting today…that is how Mondays usually are. I am nervous about my weigh in this week because I just don’t feel great this week. I’m not sure why I have been busting my butt in the gym and haven’t over ate but Lori said its normal when starting to really use weights to not lose much right away and said that muscle holds more water than fat does…which I had no clue about that one! See you tomorrow!

February 26th, 08
Well I had to work till 2 am last night which wasn’t bad no big deal and its OT so whatever! It really threw me off though eating schedule wise…I was starving but knew I shouldn’t eat because of how late it was. I ended up eating a grapefruit just to kinda hold myself over till I went home and got in bed. Tomorrow is weigh day…I’m still hoping for the 55 lb mark but still nervous to weigh….Lord help me! P.S Lori(our trainer) says people should not rely on the numbers on the scale but in other things about how they feel and how their clothes are fitting better and such, I still don’t think I can get past the numbers on the scale at this point though….yes I am obsessed with it!)

February 27th, 08
So today I weighed and…..I lost 2.2 lbs this week…I was hoping for more but I will take the 2.2 because I really didn’t think I lost anything at all. And I pretty much hit my 55lb goal….if we want to be exact I’m at 54.8 lbs lost! So I pretty much hit my goal this week! Thank you Lord! Well have a great day and I will see you tomorrow!

Life is good....

February 21st, 08
Today Chris had his physical agility exam for the fire department and he passed with flying colors. I am so proud of him. He is so great! I hope he feels that I have been the support that he has been to me through this weight loss journey I’m on. Working out together has just been so great. Today I worked out alone since he had this exam and I worked out hard…it took me an hour and half just to complete my weights. Then I spent an hour on cardio. I’m not complaining it hurts but I love it. Life is good…God is good!

February 22nd, 08
Tonight is girls night out. One of my friends is going through a divorce and so we decided that we need to go out and get her mind off of things. So tonight that is exactly what we are going to do. But for the day Chris and I are going to go work out. Then we are going to lunch. Then I think I’m taking a nap to prepare for the night…I’m the driver as usual being that I don’t drink! See you tomorrow.

February 23rd, 08
Last night was so much fun….I danced for about 3 and a half hours straight….what a freaking workout. It was great fun. Plus I got to see one of my favorite people while we were out I haven’t seen her in over a year so it was really just great! We had a good clean night of fun! I got home a little after 4a and got to bed a little after 5a….so needless to say I didn’t get up until 12:30p and I could have slept a lot longer. My plan is to clean the house but I’m thinking about crashing again I am wore out! I’m not making it to the gym today but I’m still going to workout with one or two of my videos. Thank you Lord for the great evening out and for being with me. Even though I went out all night I didn’t make bad choices when it comes to food…and my drink of choice was water so I should still be on track this week. I hope I hit 55lbs by Wednesday!

This is just wonderful! Thank you Lord for this! Next weeks goal is to hit 55! So 2.4 lbs I CAN DO IT! Thanks for all your support! Tracy is LOVING LIVING!

February 13th, 08
I can’t wait for this weekend. Chris and I are going to Lapeer to celebrate our anniversary it is going to be great. I need some time away from everything!

February 14th, 08
Well its Valentine’s day. We don’t do much since our anniversary is just 4 days later we count our anniversary and valentines together. I have been working out lots and hard. I know this weekend we will be going out a lot so I’m praying that I don’t gain anything!

February 15th, 08
YAY we are going away for the weekend I’m skipping a few days so see you Monday!

February 18th, 08
Today is our 3 year anniversary! What an amazing 3 years it has been. My hubby is the best! I love him so much! We had a great weekend! The only day that I ate bad was Friday but other than that I did pretty good! I’m hoping the scale thinks I did good too. I missed 2 days of working out but did work out a lot yesterday so I hope that helped out! God is good…thank you Lord for these past 3 years and the years to come!

February 19th, 08
I got a workout routine made for me by my trainer Lori at the gym! She is awesome! We love her! Chris is working out with me too. Its just great to have this to do together! God is so good! Tomorrow is weigh day! Lord let me hit the 50lb mark this week…AMEN!

February 11th, 08
Well I got up at 6a and went to the gym. It was great I rode the bike for 55 minutes and then swam laps for 20 minutes. It was just refreshing and felt great! Today is good…God is good!

February 12th, 08
Today I had to get up close to 5a so that we could get across town to the gym by 6a for an appt with a trainer. It was great! We loved her! We were at the gym for 3 hours it was AWESOME! Who ever thought that I would be so thrilled with that length of time spent at the gym but I am. Today went well. This evening I received a call telling me that we would probably not be getting the baby due to many reason none doing with us and all being with the SYSTEM! Which I thought I was going to have a very hard time with but I’m not. God is helping me so much and he prepared me for this. Things are great and I only want Gods will and if this isn’t Gods will then its not. I know regardless Gods hand is in it and we will have a baby one of these days. God is good and keeps his promises! Tomorrow is weigh day…I’m nervous! Lord thank you for everything.

3 day weekend...hard to stay motivated and on track!

February 8th, 08
I got to spend the whole day with my hubby YAY! Even my work out. Today he decided to join a gym and it is cheaper for the both of us to join than it is for just him because of this deal I have through work….so I’m so excited that we are going to get to work out together now! Makes me want to step up my game even more! This was something so great for us to do together. It was wonderful! And it’s a great gym. We love it! Today has just been wonderful. I’m so blessed to have this amazing man in my life!

February 9th, 08
Today I spent the entire day cleaning out closets and I’m still not done. I did not get a workout in due to all the cleaning. I should have but I didn’t. I didn’t eat the greatest today either. I didn’t really over eat I just didn’t eat the healthiest that I should have. Well tomorrow will be another full day of cleaning I didn’t even get half of the house done but its coming along. Lord thank you for this day! I give everything to you!

February 10th, 08
Today has been another day entirely devoted to cleaning. It is a little after 8p and I do plan on working out today regardless of how much cleaning I do…it has to get done. Chris and I are going to the gym super early in the morning and then we have a training session on Tuesday morning at 6a. Should be exciting! Thank you Lord for all your blessings! Please keep me motivated I feel I’m losing it a little bit!

Short journaling days....not too much to say right now...just keep on keeping on!

February 5th, 08
Slept in today because I am working 12 hours, but I did get up in time to work out before going to work. Things are good. Trying to not be anxious or impatient on hearing things back about Ada. Still praying! Lord I give you this day.

February 6th, 08
Not much to put today…today was weigh day and I’m at 46lbs. I plan to hit 50 by next Wednesday…I know I can!

February 7th, 08
Today is going good. Just feeling tired(its that time). I have a TCI training today which is pretty physical so I may skip out on my exercise this morning because I know what is to come. Lord your Good….help me to keep my head up, and know that you are in control!

over things at work....

February 4th, 08
Well I went in to work for a meeting today and it SUCKED. It was basically about how much my shift sucks and so on. When the boss asked me what I thought I really didn’t have a response. I felt completely BLAH about the situation. I didn’t care really…I mean I don’t want to put it that way because I do care about my work performance and things of that nature but I just took the feedback…if that is what you want to call it and was like alright and lets move on. No biggie! Which is crazy because I use to get so wrapped up in things like that but now that Im older I’m thinking whatever. I can only do what I can do and that is it…and if you don’t like it….ship me out. But anyways back to life for real and not work. I’m doing okay. Feeling kinda crappy but doing good. Gotta get ready for work now. God help me to not grow bitter with work, help me stay focused on the important things…thank you!

Busy few days....

January 31st, 08
Too much to do today. But I am excited I weighed this morning and now I’m at 44.8 lbs lost! YAY! I am going up to Flint this afternoon and I have to go to work right now. So I won’t have much to say for the next couple days! God is good…be blessed!

February 1, 08
So I’m in Flint and I surprised Bill and Pam last night which was GREAT! I have been crazy busy so it has been hard to eat every couple hours like I should but I’m being sure not to sit and just kill a huge meal. Things are going good. I have been getting recommendation letters and they are great. I’m so very appreciative for them. God is good ALL the time! I’m going home first thing in the morning =(

February 2nd, 08
Well last night was good I got to talk to Jenny who has the connection with this lady who cares for Ada at this time. She read our letters and said she was taking them over to her ASAP. Things look good…just got a lot of red tape stuff to get through. God is in control is all I know. Now all we can do is sit and wait and most importantly PRAY! If your reading this please pray for us as well and this precious little girl. Driving home this morning was horrible…that roads were bad, but once I got past lansing it was pretty smooth sailing. Lord continue to be with me and help me through! In your NAME AMEN!
