Cookied dough anyone?

Have you ever had one of those days where all you want to do is eat a thing of cookie dough? Well that is how my evening has been. My day was actually pretty good. It was my first day to keep track of calories (or food groups depending on how you look at it). I went just a little over my goal of 1600 calories.

I am so thankful for the leader of my First Place 4 Health group! She is such an encourager. I learned from WW that it is SO important to have the support of those around you. And now, in FP4H, it is just being reiterated. I can't wait to see where this takes me in life! I am just so excited!

If you think of it, pray for me this week. I know that it will be easy for Satan to tempt me. Between the heat and me starting my monthly time. He really knows how to get to me. The good thing is this: ‎"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man .And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it." -- I Corinthians 10:13

So much for that thought...

I thought I would be going back to the YMCA this week, however that has not happened. My entire family has been sick! Seriously all three boys are dealing with stomach issues. Not fun at all I tell you, not fun! I am glad that I haven't got the bug and am praying that my headache from last night and this morning doesn't come back.

I did get to go to the First Place 4 Health meeting on Sunday afternoon! I think I am going to really like it. Not saying I won't have hard weeks or weeks that I just want to quit, but I feel like my walk with God will help me through those times. One of the things I like most about this program is that it focuses on the spiritual aspect too. I already have two Bible verses to memorize and have ordered my kit and Bible Study book! I can't wait to really get started. For right now I am just writing down what I eat, not really changing much about what I eat yet. I will keep you updated on how this goes. I go to the meeting once a week, kind of like Weight Watchers. For now if you will all just pray for health for my boys and that I don't catch anything (I have trouble not giving my boys kisses).

I'm still here...

I haven't disappeared from the face of the earth, I have just had a REALLY busy week! Between VBS at my church and two of my nieces coming to stay with us for a few days I just haven't had much time to blog about things.

As far as working out goes I skipped the YMCA this week. We had VBS in the mornings, which honestly was a pretty good work out! Then the boys take there naps in the afternoon, so I decided to not go this week.

But this week I will start back, so pray that I will have the energy to complete each days work out! I am also going to a meeting today for a program called First Place 4 Health. I will let you know what I think about it later this week.

Kick butting...

Er, I mean Kick Boxing. :) Yeah, I did a kick boxing class this week! Man it kicked my butt! I am still feeling the effects of it! I had to sit out several times because I was either too winded or my back hurt too bad. But I did stay till the end! Which from the sounds of it is a pretty big thing!

I am hoping my headache goes away today so I can finally go to the zumba gold class, which sounds like the advanced zumba but it isn't, it is the zumba for beginners. :) I am hoping I will actually be able to do this one!

Have any of you ever heard of First Place 4 Health? I am considering joining a meeting place here in OKC. If you have heard of it or have ever been a part of it please let me know what you thought of it. It sounds to me very similar to WW but with a spiritual aspect. Which is very, VERY important.

Take two...

I did another cycle class! I was super sore this go round. Mainly my lower back hurt. It still does but I think I need to just push through it. Yesterday I went on a walk and felt much better so there you go!

I am going to try kick boxing tonight! Wish me luck!
