I truly hope all of you have a FANTASTIC and HAPPY NEW YEARS!
I hope ya'll made some resolutions that you can keep!

My resolutions are to try to lose the other 7o pounds that i want to get off of me, and do it the healthy way. I was very successful this year with getting the weight off and i look and feel so much better.

My MIL got me a WII for christmas and i LOVE that thing! I burn more calories on it than i would ever expect! and I can continue if we get PG! how exciting is that! I have been on it every day for at least an hour and it burns about 450 calories an hour for me! can you say WOW!! :)

Please all of you have a safe and fun time with your family's!

Have a great week!

In God We Trust

I actually watched this movie, but this is described so very well..
This is an email I received and I have LOTS of Christian friends, and thought I would spread this around. Not sure where you can get the video to watch, my MIL bought it and we watched it as a family. VERY NICE. and yes I left in tears because I had an emotional day thinking of my miscarriage.


Look it up or Google it.

A doctor-friend wrote:

A couple of days ago I was running (I use that term very loosely) on my treadmill, watching a DVD sermon by Louie Giglio ...and I was BLOWN AWAY! I want to share what I learned....but I fear not being able to convey it as well as I want. I will share anyway.

He was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God He spoke the universe into He breathes stars out of His mouth that are huge raging balls of fire...etc. etc.
Then He went on to speak of how this star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO knitted our
human bodies together with amazing detail and wonder.. At this point I am LOVING it (fascinating from a medical standpoint, you know.) ....and I was remembering how I was constantly amazed during medical school as I learned more and more about God's handiwork.
I remember so many times thinking....'How can ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this???'

He went on to talk about how we can trust that the God who created all this, also has the power to hold it all together when things seem to be falling our loving Creator is also our sustainer.

And then I lost my breath.

And it wasn't because I was running my treadmill, either!!!

It was because he started talking about laminin.

I knew about laminin. Here is how wikipedia describes them: 'Laminins are a family of
proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in
almost every animal tissue.' You see....laminins are what hold us together....LITERALLY.
They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next
cell.. Without them, we would literally fall apart. And I knew all this already. But what I
didn't know is what laminin LOOKED LIKE..

But now I do.

And I have thought about it a thousand times since (already)....

Here is what the structure of laminin looks like...AND THIS IS NOT a 'Christian portrayal'
of it....if you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature, this is what you
will see...

Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!!!


The glue that holds us together...ALL of in the shape of the cross.

For by him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth , visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
He is before all things, and in him all things HOLD TOGETHER. '
Colossians 1:15-17.

Thousands of years before the world knew anything about laminin, Paul penned those words.. And now we see that from a very LITERAL standpoint, we are held cell to the cross.

You would never in a quadrillion years convince me that is anything other than the mark of
a Creator who knew EXACTLY what laminin 'glue' would look like long before Adam even breathed his first breath!!

" Faith is not knowing what the future holds, but knowing who holds the future."

I wanted you to know and to undertstand that YOU are being held together by the cross of Jesus Christ . His love. His forgiveness and His marvelous power.....

Have a GREAT WEEK and

but always... remember the REASON for the SEASON!!

I have decided...

THAT... I'm going to go back to my workout routine, starting TODAY! I am going to start running again, to see if I can get out of this depressed funk that I am in. I think I'm depressed because I keep thinking about the baby that I lost. :( The dr. told me not to get my HR over 140, but that doesn't help me lose weight. I think the 140 is so when I do get PG again, that I can just exercise, without losing the weight. I'm not completely understanding but, I'm thinking i'll just go back to normal until i get a positive PG test again.
But, I'm am trying my hardest to think positive again. and GOD WILL help me get through this.

Terrible Day

I just need a place to vent.. soooo

I caught my 12 year old daughter lieing to me and stealing from me. I feel like I have failed as a mom. I know kids give us trials and tribulations, heck thats why we have them. I come from a "strong" Christian background, and NEVER would have thought I'd be dealing with this. I whip her and tell her its wrong, but is there a way to "show" her its wrong? I am deeply hurt, I have cried all day, and at the same time I want to know why I think that God would give me more children if I can't teach the ones I already have to do the right thing??? I mean SERIOUSLY???

Am I throwing this out of pro-portion? I'd never done this to my parents, and Lord knows never even thought about it.

On a different note, I am still doing great with my workouts every day, YAY! I walk an average of 4 miles a day. although, the scale is not budging an ounce :( it'll get off me when it gets good and ready, i reckon!

Thanks for listening to me vent, and if you have any suggestions, please send em my way.

Have a Great Week,

2nd wind

OK.. I am a POOR POOR blogger I have figured out! But..
I have found my 2nd wind to get this diet thing and exercise back under control. Since the Sat. after Thanksgiving I have walked at least 4 miles every day and done a 4 mile bike ride as well! YAY!! I got up this morning and have already walked 4 miles and biked 4, BUT since I have this HUGE craving for steak, baked potato, and salad, I am doing another walk so I don't feel so guilty for eating tonight, although i will prolly only eat half and eat the other half for lunch tomorrow! I'm so glad I found this in me and decided with myself (yes I have voices in my head), that when I have a cheat day I will do 2 round of exercises! I think that'll make me decided if its worth it. Also, I have cut my calories back to 1500 and have done SOOO good sticking to that.

As far as TTC, we are officially trying again now. I have a REALLY good feeling about this month. But, I do know that Its ALL in God's control. :) How good it is to be a Christian, and to rely on Him at all times.

Thanks for all of your support,

Have a great week,
