I am in the process of planning to get great nutrition and lose weight.
You know the saying, "Failing to plan is planning to fail."
With this in mind, I am creating a daily schedule for Monday through Friday. I will workout every weekday and have the weekends completely free for family time, fun activities and relaxing in my beloved hammock.
My plan has every hour of the day mapped out. I have to stick to the schedule to get everything in and still have 4 hours of family time every day.
Wish me luck! If all goes well, I'll be sharing before/after photos at the end of August.
Houston! We have lift off!!

In the past, healthy eating has been a chore. Lately, I've learned to count calories and log everything. And it works! I have two amazing apps that help me: Cardio Trainer and MyFitnessPal.
But, the best tool isn't so much self-control. It is planning ahead! If you plan ahead what you are going to eat, the sugar bug won't be as tempting, because you have already decided what to eat. Make the decisions based on what you have consumed for the day. No more sudden decisions to run out for ice cream (unless your sitting there after you've planned and logged everything and realize you have a few hundred calories to spare).
Eating healthy really isn't as hard as we make it. Today for lunch, I am eating 320 calories and my plate is full. I am having two WASA crackers (45 cal ea.), 6 slices of ham (50 cal)and two servings of Sharp cheddar cheese (180 cal).

I know you have been walking a lot and I want to tell you that you look like you are losing weight, but I don't see it yet. So, I'm just going to keep smiling and staring.

- The very first thing that God spoke to me is that John wants to come home, but he has inquired a huge deal of debt. I told my sister-in-law that God spoke this to me, but asked her to please not tell Nancy because I did not want to discourage Nancy and I wasn't sure that God had been super clear on this. My sis-in-law confirmed this as the truth. John and Nancy had no debt together - house is paid for and they owned a business together. John bought a house and a boat for the other lady and has loans on all of it. How awesome the Father is to reveal the way. MISSION FOR PRAYER: Break the yokes of bondage - both debt and personal so that John can return to his first love (Nancy)
- God spoke to me through the music video below regarding John and how He is going to break through all the demons in John's life
- One night, I was lying in bed praying for John and Nancy and I asked God to speak freedom over John with me. I asked God to say it with his voice...the same voice that split heaven and earth and that brought all that we see into existence. Our country's national anthem started playing in my mind, "The Star Spangled Banner". Here is what I learned of the song as a child. The writer was in a boat in the harbor losing hope, but as he looked out the small window of the ship, he saw the flag flying. It gave him hope. What God spoke to me is that John feels like a prisoner, but he isn't. He's sitting in a prison cell where the door is not locked. He is waiting until morning and can come out. I transferred this revelation to my sis-in-law who transferred it to Nancy. One of them read the wikipedia article about the song. Lo and behold, Francis Scott Key was not a prisoner in the ship after all. He had gone to rescue someone who was a prisoner. How awesome!? MISSION FOR PRAYER: Ask the Lord to bring morning soon, so that John and Nancy can leave John's 'prison cell' in safety and in the light.

Is this not the fast which I choose,To loosen the bonds of wickedness,To undo the bands of the yoke,And to let the oppressed go freeand break every yoke?Isaiah 58:6

To be honest, it isn't difficult for me to drink water instead of coffee or Sprite. The hard thing was when I woke up this morning and naturally wanted a glass of milk. Uh-oh. I had to deny myself for the first time. I am attempting to also make healthier food choices during the fast, but the primary sacrifice is to DRINK ONLY WATER!
