Hello to all! Happy Sunday. We are still in a state of recuperation around here. Tone Tone was not up for church so we had living room church. By that I mean, we watched FUMC Houston on TV and stayed in our jammies. She is taking it easy...trying to let her blood pressure stabilize and getting lots of rest. These hospital stays typically take it out of her...So rest is has been the order of the day.
I managed to rest right along with her...I had a rough night..physically. Just did not sleep well and was REALLY nauseated most of the night. So I did not exactly jump in to action today. As crazy as this may sound...I could hardly bring myself to eat anything for a better part of the day. I finally had my shake at about 2:00 PM. Not exactly on program..but it was the best I could manage today.
I decided to take another walk! Today was so nice. It was a great temperature outside...a little windy...but doable. Lots of people were out today...I like that!
Before I went on my walk (2.2 miles today), I listened to the sermon on T.V. that we recorded for Living Room church! It was about building our lives on a solid foundation...the foundation of God's word. As I listened, I thought about these words in relation to my Journey. Specifically, regarding changing the way I eat, my habits around food, my emotional eating, etc...I thought about how I am "building" or "re-building" my life from the ground up...when it comes to food. I keep saying that this Journey is about so much more than just losing weight...and as I listened today I am aware of the new growth..the new foundation that I am having to learn about as I make this trip.
My cousin Barbara wrote the following comment to me...I wanted to share it with everyone because it is a wonderful acknowledgment of my experience so far. Not really anything of my doing...but of the gift of God's Guidance and Grace on this Journey. I told you guys I have a wonderfully supportive and strong family...I am so blessed! I am proud of my family.
