Today was a great day!! I started potty training our youngest child today and she did very well!! She had been showing signs of being ready, so today I finally decided to give it a try since we have a 3-day weekend. We got the #1 down pat, bu... Read more

Well, my plateau of over a month is finally over. Lowering carbs was the key for me. I'm down 2 pounds this week and am SO relieved that my vigilance about what enters my mouth is being rewarded!! The thing I like best about lowering carbs is... Read more
Temptations

Temptations are everywhere in my world. I struggle daily to resist these temptations. The devil seems to know exactly what my vices are and hangs them in front of me like a dangling carrot. I always try to make decisions that are honorable to... Read more

I love my life. I am a firm believer that we all have the ability to make our lives awesome or drudgery. I have found such inspiration in persons who have faced huge obstacles in life and have either overcome or learned to live with, and love,... Read more
Shout and Be Glad

Shout and Be Glad. This was the title of the song our choir sang on Sunday. Every song I choose for the choir to sing really has to say something to me in order for me to pick it. I usually spend a couple of weeks in July picking out all the ... Read more

I did it. I finally did it. I went back to Curves today. I haven't gone since before Christmas. I always have tons of excuses. It's too cold. I'm too tired. The kids got me up in the night. There might be a school delay. But the real re... Read more

Well, today my husband and I participated in a Wedding Vow Renewal service at church. It wasn't something that we set out to do, but the Pastor had announced several weeks ago that she would be doing this special service and invited all to par... Read more

How scary it is thinking of my little children growing up and being on their own some day. My husband and I went to Ft. Wayne tonight with my 6-year old twins. It was a nice evening, but there were so many things in the "big bad world" that re... Read more

Well, I weighed in this morning. Still at 138. I've only switched over to low carbs the last 3 days, so I'm hoping for a better result next week. It will happen. I am committed to being healthier for me, my family, and God and I will do it..... Read more
Not just another day.

Today seemed like just another day. A "normal" day at school (as normal as a special needs classroom gets!). A good evening at home. But really, it was so much more than that. Each day is a gift. I have taken some time to reflect. There we... Read more

For whatever reason, tonight my oldest two were asking questions about airbags. They figured daddy was older because his car didn't have an airbag, but mine does. So daddy's car must be older and therefore, he is older. Interesting reasoning.... Read more

Note to self: You're a horrible "tweener"

I decided that after I go to the grocery Tuesday, I'm going to start back up with Atkin's to get that final 20lbs. off. Beyond that, I believe I can maintain with a healthier balance. But until then, I haven't been very good. I had 2 pieces o... Read more

Well, I am once again struggling with my voice. Only about every other word I say is actually audible. Everyone says "are you coming down with a cold?" Uh, no, just trying to get over the creepy crud that I had!! On the diet front, I'm j... Read more
