The Well

So my church, The Church On MastersRoad is partnering with some great people to have a food pantry at the church. it will be this beautiful mesh of help and worship. Meeting physical needs and spiritual ones as well. Just one more way for us to be in the community. This ministry is going to be called “The Well” and should begin in March.

Food pantries were one of the few ways that we got food growing up as a kid. My parents divorced when I was a wee one, maybe 3 years old. We lived with my mom and went to my dads every other weekend. My dad paid child support to my mom to cover his half of raising us. The only problem was that my mom didn’t work to cover her half. So with that we ended up living on very little money. We relied heavily on food pantries, especially around the holidays. I stop and think about it now as an adult and we would not have survived if these food pantries did not helps us. I remember calling them and waiting in line with my sister as kids.

My hope is to volunteer and  minister to others the way that we were helped and ministered to as kids.


Back to Health Day 8 and 9

Soooo Oreos will be the death of me. My kids are BANNED from any and all Oreos forever and ever. I have good self control with almost everything except OREOS!! They are gone.

I have lost a few more pounds, need to get back to my pre-holiday weight so that I can continue with my 2015 goal of health and getting to 175 pounds.

I did not work out the last 2 days because my older two went with dad to work and my younger one was a teething whiney mess. So i am back at it today. 3pm. With bells on.

I feel my muscles in my legs finally, like literally feel there, there used to be too much fat covering them. my arms are getting nicer and short sleeve shirts aren’t so terrifying anymore though my arms still need some work.

Still trying to find consistency but so far this year I’m doing pretty good!

Back to Health Day 5-7

I worked out with Matthew, biceps and triceps….

I worked out with Matthew, legs and a 30 min bike ride

I worked out with Amy and did chest and back.

I am such in the groove with working out, i forgot how good i feel when I am active. Now to work on eating I have cut Starbucks WAY back and have cut 90% of gluten out. Just a little more tweaking and I will be doing good! Not gonna stop, never gonna quit. Always a process!

Back to health day 2 and 3

so New Year’s Eve I didn’t work out. I did weights two days in a row prior and I was sore from the neck down. Lol.

And since we are on the honesty train, I didn’t eat well. It was New Year’s Eve. Come on.

Now today. Day 3 New Year’s Day is another wash. So sore. Bad food. Ugh. Tomorrow is a fresh new day. Tomorrow I will do the elliptical for 30 minutes and try to not eat any gluten. Or chocolate. Thats my mini goal for tomorrow.

I’ve got 40 lbs to lose this year and a habit of healthy choices I need to gain.
