Getting back on track with my devotions!

March 29th 08
Today is Saturday! Now I have to work 6 days straight but then I get to go to Flint for 2 and a half days! Just gotta make it through the week. I don’t want the week to go by too fast though because that just means that my weekend will go by that much faster! Today has been pretty good. I got a chance to catch up on my devotionals which I have been putting off…which is horrible on my part. Got my priorities mixed up again and need to get that in ORDER! God has been so good to me! His love is never ending…yet I still don’t make my devotion time the biggest priority of the day…but I’m trying to get that completely on track! Well have a good day! God Bless!

Catching up...missed a few days of posting!

A great quote I saw on a billboard…. “A set back will not set me back…DETERMINED!”

March 15th, 08
Well just to let you know I completed the 3.3 miles last night and I’m so proud of myself! I’m just so happy about it! YAY! I’m working 12 hours today so I have got to get going! God is GOOD!

March 16th, 08
I just got home from another 12 hour shift, but today I walked close to 4 miles if not over with my boys today it was great! I’m feeling so good that I can do this and keep up…last year I would have never been able to do it! YAY! I’m going to bed now…goodnight!

March 17th, 08
Its St. Patricks day which really means nothing to me. Today is good I worked about 10 hours today which is better than 12 but I have a 16 hour shift tomorrow which sucks because I won’t make it to them gym, but the $$$ will be great! Have a blessed day!

March 18th, 08
All I did today was work. Tomorrow is weigh day and I’m praying I lost something!

March 19th, 08
Woohooo…. I lost 3.4 lbs which puts me at 64.4 lbs total YAY! I’m so super happy! Well I have lots of packing to do, we are going to Flint tomorrow night after work yay!

March 20th, 08
So I was on my way to the gym when my eyes started burning so bad that I couldn’t even keep them open. Which sucked because I had to come home. But I ended up getting to finish packing before tonight so it worked out…all except for the workout itself which sucks! I’m so excited though that we are going to Flint tonight YAY!

March 21st, 08
So we drove to Flint last night. YAY we are here so this weekend is going to be spent mostly with mom and dad so I will see you on Monday!

March 24th, 07
This weekend was great. I ate healthy, although I didn’t get my workouts in but other than that it was awesome to spend the time with family and friends. I’m bummed that it is Monday and I have to get back to work. Oh well I will be going to back Flint in a couple weeks so its all good. God is good.

March 25th, 08
Today is my moms birthday and I wish I was in Flint to celebrate it with her but gotta work and that’s life. I’m really worried about weighing this week I’m nervous that I possibly gained even though I didn’t over eat. But Tuesdays are my panic days so lets cross our fingers for something good.

March 26th, 08
I’m totally bummed out. I didn’t gain but I didn’t lose either. I hate when I feel like a week has been wasted. But I just have to move on. Like that quote “ a set back will not set me back” determination! That is how I have to look at it. And I just have to work harder!

March 27th, 08
Well this work week has been super stressful and unfortunately Chris has had to put up with me and all my grumpiness. But I will get over it and past it. I’m so glad I have gotten back to regular workouts since last week I was sooooo off. God is good! I’m really trying to make up for not losing weight last week. I’m hoping for 6 lbs which I know is a lot but I also think it is doable! So I’m busting my butt for it. And praying for it at the same time!

March 28th, 08
Today I weighed when I woke up because I was still a little disturbed about not losing this week and I have lost 2.6 lbs so far since Wednesday YAY! Which puts me at a total of 67 lbs! I’m hoping and praying that I reach the 70 lb mark by next Wednesday! I know it can happen Lord willing….and when I hit the 73 lb mark I will be down into the 2’s which most people wouldn’t rejoice about but I’m going to!!!!! Its been hard work! God has been so good to me helping me through!

So I just actually did my 3.3 mile course. I'm so proud of myself right now! I could have never done that before! YAY!

The weather is BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm loving it!

March 13th, 08
Well the weather is great praise God. I didn’t go to the gym today but I did do the biggest loser work out and it was a killer but I loved it. Things are going great. Chris is sick though…I’m hoping he gets better soon! God Bless!

March 14th, 08
Its FRIDAY which means it is my day off of work so YAY! I’m so super happy about that. I went shopping this morning for a few things then came home and cooked then cleaned out the garage all by myself(Chris is sick). I didn’t get tired at all and I know before I started working out there is no way I could have done it without taking a break! Then I cleaned the cars out…all they need now is washed the insides look great and the outsides look horrible…lol. Today I also got in my car and tracked a 3.3 mile course around and through my neighborhood. I really wanted to just do 3 miles and then Chris told me a 5K was 3.2 miles and I had already started the course over once and I didn’t want to recalculate again just for a tenth of a mile besides more is better than less right so I’m so excited to go and do this 3.3 miles I know I can do it and eventually I will be running it…not any time soon…but eventually I will I have faith in God and myself that it will happen. Well its too nice outside to be in here on this computer so have a blessed day!

Wow I was further behind in keeping this updated than I thought...

February 28th, 08
Staying on track. Working out. Can’t wait to have tomorrow off of work!

February 29th, 08
Today we went to a surprise birthday party for one of our friends. His wife is currently pregnant and she has really popped out there. We haven’t seen them in quite some time and it was really kind of hard to see them, I know it just has to be the pregnancy thing which I don’t know why I feel that way…I mean I do but I don’t want to feel that way. I’m totally happy for them I really am, it just must be satan trying to get me down. But anyways we went to dinner and I did really good I stayed away from the basket of tortilla chips and just ate part of my salad. I was super happy about that!

March 1st, 08
Well today I had to go into work at 6am due to someone calling off which made for a long day and no work out…I was mostly bummed that I didn’t get to spend the morning with my hubby and go to the gym. I’m super tired so I’m going to bed.

March 2nd, 08
Today I also worked 12 hours….because of another call off….ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME! We have had 4 call offs in the past 2 days it is ridiculous. However I did get to go to the gym today which I was super happy about. I worked out super hard…but I think I did something wrong because my back is not feeling too hot.

March 3rd, 08
Well one of my favorite kids was discharged from our facility today. I was so happy for him but so sad to see him leave, I pray that God will be with him. Today my back is in bad shape. I went to pick up a laundry basket and couldn’t do it. Then when I went to stand up I fell over in tears. It was awful, but I went to work on some pain meds because I knew there was no way I was calling off after this weekend of call offs and chances were that there would be another call off tonight…and I was right someone else did call off but I did not stay over my back was too jacked up.

March 4th, 08
Went to the doc today about my back and got some muscle relaxers. My back was starting to feel better on its own but you never know when that could happen again. Things are good. Tomorrow is weigh day, but also that time of the month day so I’m not expecting the scales to say much.

March 5th, 08
Well I weighed today and lost another 2.2 lbs….which is good…I will take it! Thank you Lord for continuing to be with me and helping me to continually lose weight. You are amazing Lord!

March 6th, 08
Well I didn’t get to work out today. I worked a double from 6a-10p so I was wore out! Not much to say today but mom is coming to visit tomorrow I am so excited!

March 7th, 08
Mom is here and will be here until Sunday evening so I won’t be typing too much. I’m just so happy she is here. YAY!

March 8th, 08
So I took mom to my gym today and we went to Zumba class which was ridiculously FUN! I loved it! I’m going to be doing that again! It was great! We had a great day! God is Good!

March 9th, 08
I’m bummed mom went home. We had so much fun. I am praying for the day that we will live closer and wont have to say goodbye for weeks at a time! But I am thankful that she got to come down. I’m doing good on my eating and exercising! Not much to say but have a good day!

March 10th, 08
I love getting to go to the gym with my hubby, it is so much fun! He is great and always lets me know how proud he is of me! I’m hoping to hit my 60 lb mark this week I know its kind of asking a lot but not really I only have to lose 3 lbs to hit it so lets make it happen!!! =)

March 11th, 08
Well I’m working another 12 hour day, but I did get up and work out! Tomorrow I probably wont since I’m getting home after 2am but I will try to do something tomorrow. And tomorrow is weigh day! Lord I pray that I have lost!

March 12th, 08
YAY I hit my 60 lb mark and went over a little bit. I lost 3.8 lbs which puts me at about 61 lbs YAY YAY YAY! Thank you Jesus!!! God is so good!
