My Runometer Just Blew Up!


I never have been much for running...at least not since elementary school....it's been a while. Well, I decided I would start working out and 'running' to get in better shape before I go to Uganda at the end of May.  I started walking.  But it wasn't long until my walking turned into a light jog and then I would stop and walk.
Now I still stop and walk every once in a while but I definitely have been getting the time in and not to mention the miles in. Here are my stats so far:
Not the best in the world...and I am no marathon runner nor am I preparing for one...But I am glad to see that I am sticking with a goal to help get me in better shape...Now sometimes I will run twice a day...If I am sitting in my house for too long my legs start telling me they want to run...This is a sensation I don't recall ever feeling...And when I run now in the mornings....I don't have to stop because it is cooler and I have no problems.  

In just a short time of being consistent and getting up and out and actually doing it, I have seen great improvements in the way I feel when I wake up in the morning...my energy has increased and of course my waist size is going down! I use the Nike+ GPS app because it monitors my runs and I can see what I have done and how I have improved...I have no regrets about what I have done so far and plan on keeping up the  hard work so I can keep with my 3 kids :)

Seductive Sugar

If for no other reason than an encouraging word to myself down the road, I would like to write up an article on healthy living.  Eating right and exercising! That's right! Why is it so hard to do you ask yourself...I ask myself the same thing often.  I know exactly why it is hard for me. I am addicted to food. Mainly sugar.

I was held in captivity to sugar. The more I ate the more I was hungry for more. And sadly enough, I felt worse the more I ate. What is it about sugar that feeds our flesh so much that we could knowingly kill our bodies in the process?

I don't smoke because I know the repercussions that would have on my lungs and my health. I don't drink because 1) Scripture says not to, 2) it has obvious negative consequences to my mind and my health (liver).
Then, why oh why would I ingest on average 55 lbs. of sugar a year?  Wow what a set up....it tastes so good.


It reminds me of how Satan tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. Obviously we know that fruit has sugar in it...how ironic that the same thing he tempted Eve with is what he is killing us with on a daily basis. Our bodies can't handle it and we all know it.

I try to remind myself of these things as I opt for a healthier meal with benefits for my body.  I work out to build a stronger body that can be used to glorify the Lord and encourage others. I drink plenty of water to purify my system that God has created in me so that I will live to be able to minister at an older age and be able to play with my Great Grand kids unless Jesus comes back first :)

For me, tomorrow is too late to start on this path. Now is the time. Now is the time for a change.

Project Glass

This is a Project that Google is working on making...They want your feedback and ideas so give it to them.

Also what kind of good or bad things would this mean for people driving?  If they already are looking at their phones maybe this would be an improvement.
