Today has been a great day!

I've ate OK..I would like to have had some more veggies, but its grocery store day..

For exercise with my girls help, I pushed mowed a HUGE portion of our yard, its  very hilly too, and no, I was not using a self-propelled mower. I feel SO good, I love doing this kind of workout.

I'm having a salad tonight for dinner and some coffee for desert.

That's about it! I'm feeling SOO good. I am not going to weight myself for a week or so..I get myself discouraged when I weigh to much.

Happy Monday!!!!

I didn't post this weekend..and I may not most weekends.

Friday night Dh decided to take us out for dinner so, I am sure I went over my calories, but I don't want to ever refuse my husbands kindness because of calories!

Saturday I am ate well..I didn't get any exercise in, but I did help out a lot with kitchen remodel, so that helped.

Today I am back at it and I am excited about it!!!!

My weight did not go up over the weekend so that's a plus!

Well, day 2 and I am off to a good start..a mile on the elliptical, crunches, leg lifts. I plan on doing more tonight with Larry.

Yesterday, I did OK on drinking lots of water...even OK on protein but I think maybe I might of had a few to many carbs.

My plan today is a big breakfast...normal lunch..tiny dinner.

I was amazed today how much stronger I felt on the elliptical after only ONE, maybe its all in my head but I felt so good and I got my miles done in 5min less time than yesterday!! I know its the Lord helping me, thank you all so much for your prayers!!!!

Now, this elliptical is not your normal elliptical...its an off brand of the Bow Flex Tread is tough!! Its like taking a step then gliding, so much different than a regular elliptical.

I cant wait to get outside walking though...we live in a very hilly area and I can really get a good workout walking outside.

After this week I am going to add in weights...weights are my favorite thing to do. I could do weights all day long..I'm not a big fan of cardio.

BUT...that's it for now. I wanted to update before my little ones got to get my 2 quarts of water ready and in the fridge and have some breakfast...oats with real butter and Sucanat.

Have a blessed day y'all....

Oh..and here is the song I worshipped to while sweating away this morning!

Its do or die....really.

I started this blog months ago with a half hearted decision to lose weight...

I am back again..totally surrendered to this. I know the Lord is showing me I have to do this..there
is no choice. I feel the extra weight effecting me..I know what health problems can develop..I know it can kill me.

This is not put your heart out here for the whole tell everyone how bad you've messed up..but what ever it takes, I will do it..I need your help..your encouragement and your today I start my journey...

When my husband and I met I was a very fit 130 pounds..I loved him picking me up..I loved working out with him..I loved the way he looked at me..

Fast forward 10 years, we have 7 children...busy life with homeschooling..housework and family is much different now. I never thought much about my weight, I was able to lose weight after each baby with a little exercise...but baby number 6 changed it body changed. Losing weight is hard now..almost feels impossible sometimes.

BUT the past is the past..I want to be healthy for my family..I want to be a good example to my daughters and other mothers...I want to honor the Lord with my body and treat His temple the way I should. 

Today is the start, today everything is the first day to a new person.

My plan is to blog daily or at least every other day about my exercise  and eating...

There IS grace for me in this area!!
