33 Day Detox/Cleanse Take 2

Good Morning!  I have decided to participate in this journey again.  I need the support of the group!  I still have weight to lose and health to gain.  We were asked today to read Numbers 11:1-15.  Go look it up. 

I love Moses' honesty with God.  I love how in his fit he went directly to God.  I have a tendency to pout, throw my fit, call people, all before I go to God. 

I also saw in the Message version that in verse 6 it said "manna, manna, manna".  That just made me smile, taking me back to the Brady Bunch days of Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.

  We were asked as we read to think about having the same thing.  The Israelites we sick of having the same thing over and over.  I kinda think it would be nice to always know what is for dinner.  Their attitude was not one of thankfulness.  I know I have not had the right attitude many times.  God got angry at their complaining.  How many times do we today complain about life?  We are so blessed.  I can be a complainer, I have to chose to look at my blessings!!!!!

So what do we do when we are tired of it??  Its okay to get tired of something.  We can be grateful for what we have and turn to God to help us have the right attitude and ask Him to intervene in our lives. God wants us to depend on Him.

In some cases getting tired of something is what prompts change.  I am tired of being unhealthy and I will just say it....FAT.  I want change. 

What are you tired of?  What do you need to have a thankful heart about it?  What do you need to rely on God to get you through?

Still Plugging along

I am still plugging along!!!!

I can not believe I am so close to my first goal.  It is so amazing.  Life has kept me so busy lately it has been difficult to update.  I finished my 33 day detox/cleanse.  One thing I really wanted after it was over, was coffee.  I did not like it.  I will be sticking to hot tea!!!

I have not stuck to the principles I learned 100% and have really learned the saying "NOTHING TASTE AS GOOD AS HEALTHY FEELS!"  God provided us with wonderful foods that are good for us and I have learned when I eat those foods, I feel so much better.  I will be participating in the cleanse again. There is so much to learn, and I like the accountability of a group.

My daughter and I earned our orange stripe in our tae kwon do class.  This has been such a neat experience.  As a family we have deiced to take a break after we tested. We found that we were too busy.  We hope to return during soccer breaks.  ( We love being a soccer family)

My husband and I have  joined Melissa Fit Camp.  It is an awesome boot camp.  I have felt many times like I was on the Biggest Loser.  It has been fun and a new way to help me reach my goals.  And can I just say its hard!  Pray for us at 5 in the morning.!!!!
