Happy Sunday!

It’s been since January since I posted.

First off I’d like to say in my last post I was really wanting 2020 to be not only a good year, but my year. My year to turn my life around.

That actually was starting to not even be in the cards for me.

The end of January I accidentally chopped the tip off my finger. Thankful, just the tip no stitches but I had to be careful for a few weeks not to hit it on anything or it would start bleeding. So, that set me back and this quarantine came in to play and well that’s a bummer in itself.

I don’t know how many of you have followed me in the past but from September of 2016-September 2017 I did a diet exercise blog and I had a goal and I met that goal.

Now it’s 2020 and due to stress, and aging my weight has went back up. It’s not from a lack of trying. It’s really a hormonal imbalance, cortisol , and fibromyalgia.

This year I wanted to get better but honestly I kept getting worse. My quality of life was diminishing from my eyes. I was tired all the time. If that wasn’t keeping me down than pain in my joints and brain fog had me. Then if that wasn’t enough my weight kept going up and nothing I did or tried helped me.

Then a little over a week ago I tried a cup of coffee and a supplement that changed my life. No, this is NOT a sales pitch. I just want you to know that I really am back to blogging and I hope I continue feeling like this or even better. I’m even lost some ounces. It doesn’t sound like much but I’m just glad the scale has stopped going up every week. I can’t wait to get back to my chiropractor because then I should be totally 100% back to living.

I hope you’re all doing well. I know being quarantined is very hard. I’m grateful I live in the mountains and I can enjoy being outside without worrying about being too close to anyone.

I’m still doing Peloton. That is the exercise app I told you about in January. I believe it’s still free to try out, so check it out if you can. I didn’t have to have a credit card during my free trial so hopefully it’s still like that. I joined the first day after trying it because when something works for me, I jump on board without overthinking it.

I’ve also been missing church but I’ve heard great messages and singing online. I wish there was that much on the Internet on a regular basis. If you have a relationship with the Lord don’t let the not being able to gather keep you from praying, listening to online churches, or drive in church, or the message or any gospel songs. Remember, they may take the building but they can’t take God from you. Your relationship with him can still be as strong as you want it to be.

I know the Struggle is Real, but So is God!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope I’ve helped someone!

Have a Blessed Day!

2020 let it be a great year!

Happy New Year!

I know I’m a little late but they say better late than never 🤷🏼‍♀️

How many people are wanting to lose weight this year?

Yeah me too! I think I do every year and last year I was okay until the second half of the year. We lost a loved one and things just seemed to spiral downward after that.

I got up and dusted myself off and I’m going to get back on that horse if it is dragging me with just one foot in the saddle.

I found an awesome app, or I think it is. It’s the Peloton digital app. You can try it 30 days free without a credit card which was cool but by day one I was ready to sign up. It has everything I need. Time is no excuse either because they have five min videos too. I like the fun run audio. There’s music in the background and someone cheering you on the whole time.

Still need to work on eating better which is always hard for me. I will do it though!

This getting older is cramping my style a little. I am very thankful to get older but I do not like the aches and pains that come with it. I’m hoping adding exercises will help. I’m used to cardio but I gotta start getting stronger so this year I’m focusing more on exercises that will make my body stronger.

I have also entered into the world of reading glasses. Which I’m not fond of at all. I found myself having to put glasses in my bible case, purse, car, and every room in the house. Now, that’s just for when I wear contacts. If I wear my regular glasses then I just have to raise up my glasses to read up close. Since I can’t fix my eyes, I’m going to work on my body.

I still want to focus on my life with God also. I want to be faithful in prayer and reading scripture. I kinda slacked there at the end of last year too. It was definitely not good for my soul.

In one of my journals it started talking about to go to God with every request. The verse is Hebrews 4-16

The first question was what do you want to ask God but don’t because you think it’s to small. Or what do you want to ask but don’t. This was easy for me. My answer was “I don’t have this problem ” and I don’t. I ask God for anything that is on my heart. From healing someone to bringing my cat home because he’s been gone to long. God wants us to talk to him and I talk to him like my friend. He knows our every thought and care so why not just open up to him and just talk to him.

The struggles are real ❤️

I hope everyone reading this has a great year! Thank you for taking the time out to read these words! God Bless

PS I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad the elves on the shelves are gone. I’m sorry ,I will never understand the concept.
