|i’ve been thinking a lot about something that ali edwards mentioned in her blog.
choosing a word for 2009.
a word that sums up what you want for yourself this coming year.
i thought this would be easy. i thought a word would just jump out at me.
but it didn’t. i’ve been thinking about it…looking up words…scriptures etc….
i finally narrowed it down to two.
refocus & renew.
2008 was a year that i really focused on getting healthy. losing weight. exercising. making healthy eating choices.
but one thing that always got pushed to the bottom of my to-do list, was my quiet time wtih God.
in 2009, i would like to refocus my energy and renewing my relationship with Christ.
daily making the choice to create time to spend alone with him.
of course these words can also be applied to other areas of my life also, but i really want my main focus to be on Him. knowing that, when we put our eyes on Christ, everything else should fall into place.
in order to encourage this change, i have found a few challenges that i am going to do.
think about it.
it’s more than just a resolution.
what will be your focul point this year??
what the heck is this???
our local college (B & N) starbucks is using these cup things…..
something just isn’t right about tv advertisements on my beloved cup of caramel macchiato…
|that’s me. using the poor man’s plastic surgery. ha ha ha.
can’t believe it, but it’s been a year that i have been counting calories.
i use www.my-calorie-counter.com . i love it!
my original goal was to lose about 15 pounds….as of now, i have lost almost 30!!!
it keeps me accountable.
it is easy using an online journal. i opt to pay the $5 a month for additional options.
i never felt like i was ‘missing out’ on my favorite sweets or starbucks….i would just figure those calories into my daily allowance.
i also walk on the treadmill, (while lifting weights)….i try to do it daily, but occasionally miss a day here or there, (especially during the holidays). online, you can even account for the amount of time exercised and how many calories are burned during that time.
just thought i would mention it. it worked for me and i enjoy it.
if you’ve made a new year’s resolution to get healthy and maybe lose weight, give it a try!
|took down the tree tonight. mainly by myself.
taking down the tree,
as opposed to putting up the tree,
is not as much fun
enjoy your weekend!!!
|Today’s Christian Woman had a great article today, suggesting 5 Resolutions to Keep.
i hope that your 2008 has been full of God’s love & grace and that next year will bring much of the same!
