Hell Passes

Fun in the Dressing Room!

This last month has been hell for me. I never imagined what I would be going through when I started this blog. Had I known, I don't know if I would have done it, but now that I'm here, I'm going to keep going. Though I have no control over many things, this one thing I do have control over - To trust God, He is faithful and He never changes. To obey His Word - that never changes either. And to keep doing my sit ups - lol.

I went through a hard time about 5 years ago. I didn't have any control over a lot of circumstances then either. Truth is, that's when I lost my first 35 lbs. I couldn't control many many things, but I could control what I put into my mouth and I could control my body to exercise. This gave me great comfort. I find myself there again lately........ No new plans for dieting. I'm going to fast from some things and pray again this next week and believe God.

Exercise wise : Day 58 I did my 100 sit ups and cross crunches but didn't get any other exercise as we had been gone at church and I started my 3 - 12 hr nights in a row. Day 59 I did my 100/100 in a hurry after pulling Miss Moona in the sled on a short ride. Day 60 I did a quick hike and my 100/100 again before work. Day 61 Was an awful day. I had to work my 3rd 12 hr night shift, then be to appointments in another city. I did get in a quick hike and I did do my 100/100. Day 62 I was gone to a big city all day. I got home at the stroke of midnight and was doing my 100/100 shortly thereafter. Day 63 I had a good day. My friends came over for our girls group. We all went for a walk together. Then I did another walk after they left. I did my 100/100. I haven't done any skiing or running this week. Its just been too busy. Hopefully this week I will have more time for good exercise. I NEED the endorphins ;-) Pray for me if you think of it.
