Hey!! I know its been awhile since my last post. Thanks for sticking around. I have been talking to God about my food issues. At first it was God take my food issues away. Help me resist temptation. Give me strength for this diet. But, God gently began showing me that before I can concentrate on how to lose weight I must confront the WHY I am overweight to begin with.  I mean I need to know the WHY I went to food. What were those triggers? As I have been pondering, God is revealing patterns and the reasons behind those self destructive patterns. As God begins showing me, Ive been allowing Him to heal and restore. My mindset about food is changing. My anxiety around food is decreasing. Im confident that over the course of time I will begin to lose weight again. I believe God is doing a great work in my inner man. I wish I was eloquent in my writings so I can fully express my heart. I covet your support and encouragement. I know I cannot do this alone.

Scarred-Book Review

Tess does a brilliant job delving into the different ways a person can be scarred. Trey and Autumn are best friends but both want more. Yet, because of their scarred pasts, they are hesitant to reveal their true selves.  Only after some coaxing from friends do the duo begin to think about exposing themselves. Scarred is a feel good heart warming tale of love. Mix in a few twists and a side of suspense and you have the perfect weekend novel. Although its an 8 in a series, it can be read as a stand alone.

I have done nothing towards my goals. I am very disappointed in myself. Also, I have gained all but 10lbs of what I lost last year. I have come to the conculsion I need outside help.  I am not sure where to go or who to contact but I will research it.  I will keep you posted on what I find.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My 3 goals

Happy July,
I have been thinking about what goals I want to accomplish. It was hard coming up with just 3 because there is so much I want to change in my life. I want to grow not just physically(healthier) but spiritually and emotionally as well. I want to be my best version of me as I can be. So below are the goals I have set my mind too...

1) because I want to increase my understanding of the Bible, I am going to take an Online Bible Study. Its free and at your own pace. I want to commit to doing at least 3 lessons a week. There are 160 lessons in the entire course,  I think.

2) I am a procrastinator by heart. Couple that with my lack of energy, it creates a messy house. I want to commit to 1 hour(15 minute intervels) of cleaning, tidying or organizing 3x a week. I hate a dirty house and so does my hubby.

3) I have always been told we need sunshine. So, I want to commit to sitting outside(its not direct sunlight...that would be too much for me) or at least opening my blinds when the weather is hot(Im extremely sensitive to heat) at least 3x a week for at least 15 minutes. Now in the cooler weather I may be able to do it more.

I am fully aware that due to my illness I may fail some weeks. However, I would love if one of you would like to keep me accountable.  I will appreciate any positive support.

Did you set any goals? I would love to hear.

Your friend

6 months

The last 6 months have been a flop or so it seems. I am determined that the following 6 months be productive. I am going to set goals, realistic goals.  I will put every effort to stay focused and not get distracted. I will learn to prioritize. I will learn to say no, mostly to myself. So for the next week I will make 3 goals for the next 6 months. I do not want to overwhelm myself with too many things or else none may be achieved.

So, who wants to set 3 goals for the next 6 months?? If you are comfortable doing so, share them in the comments. I will share mine next weekend.

Enjoy your Saturday and stay safe.

Blog Changes

I have decided that I am going to include other issues in my blog. I am going to set a goal of weekly blogging whatever is on my mind. I hope you continue this journey with me.


Book Review

Pepper and Stone are attracted to each other at first sight yet bc of past trauma they are scared to take the leap. Will their friends be able to help? Will they find healing in love? Tess brings each character alive as if you were an actual resident in Cliffside Bay. Although Healed can be a stand alone, its a beautiful addition to the Cliffside Bay series.
