New Year............second chance (third, fourth, etc.)

I started out with this blog thinking I could lose weight. And boy, do I need to lose weight. I have two boys and a husband who needs me to take care of them. I have a family history of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes....the whole spectrum.

I realized this Christmas season that I need to take control. Many friends took pictures, which I was in just by chance. I saw that I had gained even more weight this year.

I am going to have to make some goals......I need to live. I don't think God is done with me.

I am tired.
I get stressed easily.
I have back and knee pain.
I need more energy.
I don't sleep more than 2 hours at a time. I believe I may have sleep apnea.


Goals for 2014

1. Have quiet time each morning.
2. Exercise each morning.
3. Keep up with multi-vitamin and supplement.
4. Study my Korean every day.
5. Do my study from the Tuesday night study everyday.
 6. Have family time with God every night.

I have to have God's help with this. I know this.

So, God.....I need You to do this. I want to change my life now! I know that my body is Your temple. And you have given me this temple to use for YOUR purpose here on earth.....not for my leisure.

II Timothy 1:7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

Wow! There it is.....self is a Godly trait!

So, God.....let's do this!

Well, here I am posting after almost a year on this blog. I have gained some of the weight I lost when I came to Korea. My son is wanting to get in shape and get more healthy, also.

So we started yesterday! We are drinking water like crazy and making sure we get in some fruits and veggies everyday. We have cut down the sugar and junk food. I am so proud of JC! He has done great!

I can tell already that I lost some of the bloat I had.

I am researching more on ways we can get more healthy. One thing I am trying to pound in our thoughts is that this is a lifestyle change! This is forever!

Hoping to post often with good news!
