Perfect Day #1


Ok.. so today will be the day. A perfect day... on-track diet, lots of water and excersize!! Besides.. I cant let Totegirl get ahead of me!! (I'm so competitive...)
It looks like it might be a nice day today, so I am planning on taking the girls for a trail walk.. will have to bundle them up.. they still have a yucky nose.. but I think it will do them good to get some fresh air. I think my cold was 'stress induced' because I am feeling much better today.

I was online and found something called 'Urban Bound' its basically a 40" single trampoline that fits in front of your tv and comes with workout dvd's. THEY say it is better on the joints then jogging.. and since I dont have the treadmill anymore.. and my knees have finally healed from the running I was doing on it.. I thought I might like it... has anyone tried it??

So I have to share with everyone my 'christian moment'I had yesterday. I was upset that we were not leaving on wednesday... so I turned to the bible for advice.. and the page that my bible opened to was James 4:13-17...

Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. what is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. Anyone, then , who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.

So.. I have calmed down alot and realized that if it is meant to be.. and the Lord wants it to be.. then we will go when the time is right. In all reality, it does work out better for us to leave in two weeks. 1.. the kids will hopefully be over this wretched cold... 2.. we will be going at the same time as my father in law and sister in law and her 14 yr old son.. (built in baby watchers!!) 3... we are ready.. and it is less stressful to have to run off so fast.

Anyway.. I am off to start my perfect day.. hope all is well with everyone and am glad to see my friends are doing so well in their weight loss..

Have a Blessed Day

Tigerlilly, I have faith in you! This obviously isn't going to be a very easy time for you, dealing with moving and packing and delays, but I know that you will stick to your healthy habits. Oh, and I am totally racing you to that first 5 pound loss!

I had a mini trampline for a while and loved it (until one of my kidlets broke it.) I have problems with my knees. It frustrates me when I'm on one of my walks and want to run. I know I can't because it would wreck havoc on my knees. I hadn't thought of using a trampoline. I'll be interested in how it works out for you.
