Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34

It’s been a while since I’ve written, but not because I haven’t wanted to. I’ve been tied up with school work, as our state tests are approaching. Also, my dear aunt moved in with us, and we’ve been making some improvements and changes to the house.

What has surprised me in all the busyness is how easy it has been to keep up with the diet and exercise regimen. I’m still doing the weight training, running, stretching, and belly dancing. Last Saturday I ran in a 5K race and made my best time yet. Somehow what seemed so hard a year ago has become a wonderful, welcome way of life!

I don’t ever want to go back to the way I used to eat or to the overstressed, overworked lifestyle that ate away at my body and left no time for exercise, recreation, and relaxation. I might have been dragged kicking and screaming into this way of life, but now I love it!

Here was today’s regimen in a nutshell:

Breakfast: Fruity Protein Shake, water

Snack: Oatmeal and banana

Snack: Two slices of oat bran bread and margarine

Lunch: Cup of Amy’s 3 Bean and Pasta Soup, water

Exercise: 1 hour weight training using Margaret Richard’s Beauty to the Bone DVD
1 mile run/walk
1/2 hour gardening

Snack: Sunflower seeds

Supper: Tossed salad, boiled egg, water, supplements, Bone Cocktail

It’s about 8:00 pm now and I’m heading off to bed, peaceful and healthy–and ready for a good night’s sleep!

Thank you, God, for your everlasting love and care.
