I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Well, I'm proud of myself for today. Not only did I do YogaX (a huge feat for me) but I also skipped my normal BAD dessert after church tonight and shared a small yogurt cup with the kids. I probably ate half of it myself--but still that would only be 55 calories--so I'm happy. I was VERY tempted to get icecream from the icecream shop at church and actually walked a few steps in that direction before I imagined all of you there in my head shaking your finger at me and yelling NO!!!, so turned back around and headed for the car instead. One small victory--but a victory nonetheless! I think if I can get myself to look at this whole "not eating dessert" thing one day at a time instead of thinking "I should never have this yummy dessert again" then I'll do better. So from now on...it's just for "one day." Then the next day, I'll try to do it just for "one day" again...and on and on and on. I know it's kind of silly, but I'm no stranger to the game--when it comes to playing mind games with myself. Its how I convince myself of all the things I want to believe! :o)
I have a husband I fall more in love with every day and 2 kids who have completely stolen my heart. I exercise a bit obsessively and am working out the kinks of living on a Dave Ramsey style budget. I am also a Beachbody Coach and fitness instructor. I enjoy nothing more than spending time with my friends and family! Oh and one last VERY important thing: I LOVE JESUS!!!
