Trying week and it's only Wednesday

Hello again my friends.

This week has been something else! It's only Wednesday. 

First, the past weekend and into this week has been absolutely horrible for my diet.
I haven't ate as well as I should.
I have been craving cookies, chocolate, chips.
Everything that is bad for me.

Unfortunately, I caved in and brought those things into my house.
Luckily, I held myself to portion sizes but I dunno if that is enough.

I did try to keep up with my workouts.
Zumba has been my go to workout.
I can burn up over 600 calories in just an hour.
I love it.

It has been raining here a lot so I haven't been walking outside.
I could use the treadmill but I do prefer to be outside. I find myself going longer and trying harder if I'm outside.

Yesterday was a busy/rough day as well.
A good friend of mine that I have met through church has been going through a lot.
Five years ago she battled Non-Hodskins Lymphoma and beat it. She found out that it came back the end of last year so she is going to chemo treatments and trying to win her battle for a second time.

Her son, who works in another state, has been in the hospital. They thought it was kidney stones (he only has one working kidney) but he actually had pneumonia.

Then on top of everything, her husband decided to take a nap and didn't wake up. 

Now she is very sick with a horrible respiratory illness.

Her husband's funeral was yesterday. Our church members provided food and a meal at the church after the funeral. I helped serve the family. It was a long but very rewarding day as I got to exercise my spiritual gift of serving. I got to spend time with a lot of like minded Christian women who I look up to.

Unfortunately, I wore the wrong shoes and have huge blisters on my toes.

The trying part of the day was seeing this woman that I love so much in so much pain.
She is a very strong Christian woman and I look up to her very much. She is a fine example of what a Christian woman should be. It was just hard to see her so worn down. 

My friends, I am really trying to blog more often. I find that I don't remember to do it.
I have so many blog ideas. I have so much to tell you all but I just cannot remember to write it.

The other problem I have is I get writer's block. I log on and boom everything goes out of my head.

If it doesn't go out of my head, it ends up just a bunch of rambling like this post.

I hope I can get it together for you all. I would love to write at least three times a week. Then maybe once a day if possible.  

Thank you to all who read my blog. Pray for guidance for me.

Big hugs,
Be Blessed,


  1. Some families seem to have such a rough time. I do feel for your friends. Take care x
