Waiting on the Lord!

First it was rain, then Fit camp was canceled on March 10 (due to health issues our instructor was having). I kept thinking "keep it together" cause I could feel myself getting discouraged and slowly watching my eating habit going back to my old ways. So after two weeks I joined a gym. I have been going to classes and trying to work out on my own as much as possible. I also started to watch what I was eating closely, but it is so hard to get back on track. Fitcamp will be back in a week and I'm sad that I have not lost much weight since then, but as I sat last night and poured my heart out to my dear Hubby he kept reminding me to keep my eyes on Jesus and to continue to look to him for strength on this journey. He kept saying - wait on the Lord. I was like "what does that have to do with this?" but as I was praying this morning I realized - He was right! In my devotion this morning I read this: Have you stopped praying about something cause you've grown tired of waiting on God. I knew right then that I had stopped praying about this journey and just started trying to do it on my own. I mean sure, I can work hard and get results, but I don't ever want to do anything with out the Lord, without His strength. So today I hold on to the scripture that says: But they that renew their strength ; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk and faint" Isaiah 40:31 I want to choose to do it His way and not my own. So I will press on, try my hardest and trust Him to answer my prayer - in His timing!
Lord, help me to trust you with my weight. Help me to make better choices, and please help me to always take everything in my life to you in prayer. Amen!

Vacation in Carp.

Pictures of Sarlet (or Charlotte as we know her. LOL!)

Uncle John - loven him some Char Char time!
There are no words to describe how much I loved being with my nieces. The kids had a blast at the park...and then it rained :(
Trenton and Aya are two peas in a pod.
They had so much fun together.
It was so windy that it was hard to get a good picture
Saying goodbye is never fun. We made it short and sweet. Can't wait till we get to be together again. The sooner the better!
The kids did so good for being cramped in the backseat for so long. Good times!

Goal 2...accomplished!

For the last week my pants have been filling pretty loose, but I wasn't convinced yet that I was down a size. Then I begin to get a little more confident after my last work out. I had to change my work out pants 2x's because both pairs were too lose. They were literally falling off me when I was working out (Oh my!). So today I decided to try on a pair of pants that were a size smaller ....They fit!!! and I didn't have to wrestle with them to get them on....LOVE IT!!!! Goal 2 - ACCOMPLISHED!

This week I had to work out on my own (do to the rain). I realized I am not nearly as motivated on my own, but I made myself get up and grove (yay for Turbo Jam!). That is why I was surprised that my pants were so loose. I am really looking forward to getting back to FC! I just know next week will be even better. Turbo Jam is cool, but FC Rocks!!

Next goal....???... not sure yet. When I decide I will post it. Please continue to pray for me. There are many days when I just want to give up, but I know that isn't Gods best for me, so I press on!
