1. Sandy I will be keeping in touch with you in 2009, I could have written that post. That is exactly where I am and will be there more in 2009…..that is one of my resolutions. I feel motivated, THANK YOU.

  2. You are so right on Sandy! I believe it’s important for us to take care of our bodies. After all, as Christians we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. And yes, it’s not about the vanity but feeling good and being about the business of living our lives for the glory of God.

    When I exercise and eat healthy, I feel better. When I don’t exercise and eat lots of sweets I suffer for it. Not only do I feel bad but I’m sluggish and have less energy. Then my clothes are tight and don’t look very good on me. And frankly I don’t want to spend money on bigger clothes. My budget can’t take it.

    I think that the best way to teach children is by example. Instead of going on a diet, it’s a lifestyle. As a kid, we never kept lots of candy or chips in the house. We had apples to eat for snacks. Sandy, keep on writing about this topic especially as the new year approaches. I have a picture of what I want my abs to look like and right now they don’t look quite that way.

  3. Great post. I need some motivation right now. When I started teaching group fitness I would teach 5-8 classes a week. I toned up really fast. Now that I'm in a leadership role I'm down to only teaching 2 classes per week. I can definitely tell a difference in my body. Sitting at a desk talking about fitness all day just doesn't do it.

    I got Wii Fit for Christmas. I'm really excited about it. I'm studying to get my personal trainer cert but I need my own personal trainer to keep me motivated.

    Lysa & Renee are airing a new GNO promo here on KSBJ. It's gonna be great. I'll talk to ya soon.

  4. Sandy,
    This post was so good. I REALLY needed to read it tonight. I also have STUFFED myself with too many holiday cookies and am now paying the price as I attempt to STUFF myself into my jeans!
    I started my walking back up yesterday! A few weeks late but better late than never, right??
    I will be in your neighborhood at Red House Baptist Church (do you know it)? in a few weeks and would LOVE to be able to wear clothes! They always appreciate that!

  5. Hi Sandy – I’m Stephanie. I stumbled [by God’s Providence] upon your Blog tonight after downing the last of the Christmas cookie tray that my daughter baked for me! I began to get serious three days ago [about eating right]and stayed motivated until tonight. I made a huge pot of homemade Vegetable soup but then got lost in the cookies when my sweet tooth took over! UGH! I just sent for a new book by Chantel Hobbs which can’t get here fast enough. I know how to eat God’s way – I’m just not good at making the choices 24/7. I need His help in all of it. Thanks for sharing!
    Choosing JOY, Stephanie
