Alma 24

Alma 24

Do you have weapons of war that need to be buried in order to experience peace? Do you say hurtful things to those you love most, including yourself? Do you think negatively about yourself constantly? Do you push away those that would help you? 

Words are a powerful weapon and all too frequently my words are that of war. They are meant to cut and cause pain. The person most attacked is myself, followed by my amazing husband. I don't want to be awful and rude. It just seems to come naturally when I'm feeling awful about myself. I tend to declare war on my whole world. 

It's time to bust out the shovels and get these weapons buried deep. Now I'm not suggesting burying feelings that need real addressing, I'm saying the things we inevitably regret the moment it is said or done. The things that do zero good in our lives. 

We all have weapons we can bury. And the beauty is, if we bury them we just might give our lives to God. Producing the absolute best version of yourself in the process. 
Wouldn't it be nice to actually like yourself?

Bad weigh in

Sad. Hopeless. Down. Wishing extra money would find its way into our lives so I could do something more drastic as a jump start.

A nice visual

This was drawn by a girl in a fitness group I belong to on Facebook.
I really liked the visual.

Some motivation?

So true, this year in particular.

I do believe last night's workout was my favorite so far and I sure was sweating. We turned on our Dance 4 U (Radio Disney Edited) station on Pandora and had a dance party. Soul Sister, Dynamite, and other songs by Usher, Ke$ha, Owl City, etc. Wow, I love my family.

And cheers to my 100th post!
Someday this blog will be an amazing success story. 
Thanks for hanging in there with me.

A new wave

Had a friend share on Facebook her success of losing 22 pounds in 5 months. That made me think. I should be happy with losing a pound a week. That's success. That's do-able. That's easier than failing to lose two pounds every week, getting depressed, and gaining five. 

Consequently there will be a goal revamp soon.

There are:
27 weeks left in 2014
52 weeks in 2015 
52 weeks in 2016
10 weeks in 2017 

I will not be weighing 100 pounds on my 30th birthday. That's just unhealthy. So I'm feeling less despair.
