More faith in God's plan would make me realize that worrying gets me nowhere...and fast! More faith would calm me down and make me realize that I'm where I'm supposed to be right now! More faith would assure me that He has equipped me to care for my children the way that He desires for me to. And more faith would comfort me to know that He will provide our every need, despite the possibility that our health care system will receive a major facelift. He is in control, and I simply need to have more FAITH in His plan.
This week was pretty quiet and uneventful (if you don't count the election). So I'll "cut to the chase"....
I LOST 2 lbs. this week!! WooHoo! I'm now just 2 pounds shy of losing 10 pounds and saying "hello" to another decade of numbers. Just 6 more pounds till I reach my 15 pound Christmas weight loss goal and 17 more pounds before reaching my pre-preggo weight.
My week looked like this:
Saturday--walked around outlet mall for 4 hrs
Monday--4.75 M run
Wednesday--4 M run
Thursday--4 M run with BOB
I'm not entirely sure why I lost as much as I did when I'm hardly impressed by my work outs for the week. However, I'm really watching what I'm eating....including NO Halloween candy! Randy told me that if I lost 2 pounds this week that he'd treat me to Mimi's Cafe. I *heart* their pumpkin spice muffins, which they only make during this time of year (unless they've changed the menu). YUM! Oh, how I've missed you during the last 4 years.
My goal this week is to increase my runs to 5 miles each work out so that I can reach 6 M by next weekend, which is distance I'll sit at until January. It's time to start to improving my pace.
Christie's project of the week was to fill in the blank:
My life would be better if I had more ________.
Wow, where do I start? There are so many things that I could use to fill in the blank. Putting all of the tangible, material things aside, I would answer....
My life would be better if I had more FAITH.
Simply, more faith would result in less anxiety and less worry. As a new SAHM, I worry if I'm contributing to my children's learning experience as well as Josiah's old child care providers did. I worry if Laney, at 6 months, is behind in reaching her developmental milestones since she's not showing many signs of wanting to be mobile. I worry that Laney will be sick more frequently and/or have allergies if I can't keep up with breastfeeding. I worry that Randy will have a hard time earning a living for his family in 3 years after Senator Obama takes Office in a few months. I worry that I'll never have the ability/energy/time to keep a clean and organized home. I worry that some folks won't like what I buy them for Christmas. Oh, how the list goes on and on. Just reflecting on it....makes me..well, worry. It also makes me tired.
How would YOU fill in the blank?
