Wk 6, Day 1 (26-Aug-2013)

. . No comments:
  • Today is my husband's birthday as well as my son.  Last year, we celebrated this day with my then fiance with him in Colombia and us here.  Ten years ago, I gave birth to a 5.5 lb healthy baby boy despite a very high risk pregnancy.  It's been a great ten years so far and I pray that God would grant our son another ten more decades of great health, relationships, prosperity, great quality of life, and a life dedicated to the Lord.  I pray that the next 44 years of my husband's life would be so much more incredibly blessed and wonderful than his first 44 yrs and that he would have every blessing that God has for him, for us, our families and friends.
  • Today I made a huge leap into something that God has giving me the go ahead to do for awhile now and it's been so tugging at me so strongly that today I had to take the first step in this fear and tackle it.  I'm going to have my husband and a friend hold my hands on this one until I can fly with the eagles one again, but more wisely.
  • I also tackled another fear of mine in really baby steps.  It actually started last night where I couldn't do any of it, but my husband went ahead and did it first and attempted to help me, but I failed.  I have this terrifying fear of being upside down in an uncontrolled manner and today I made my first solo attempt to begin a handstand with my hand and hands on the ground and getting my legs off the ground with my propped up elbows.  My legs were up for about a half a second, but I felt the fear melting away.
  • Since our son's class has nut, dairy, and egg allergies, we went to Wal-Mart to get a bunch of popsicles - basically frozen sugar water.  
  • I love how my husband plays guitar.  I'm his biggest fan!  I think he plays it better than the people's tabs he's playing.

  • Took my heart meds, hair supps, probiotic, MSM way late.
  • Drank water (a 48 oz QT cup).  Back to drinking ice water to see if I will drink more and thereby eat less.

  • 12:30 am - 5:45 am (5.25 hrs) - Definitely not enough sleep.  I wanted to stay up and be the first one in person to wish my husband a happy birthday and just talk with him.  And I was the first person today to wish my son a happy birthday, too.    
Breakfast  (8:15 am) - a Bacon Croissant sandwich from JIB.

Lunch (2:00 pm) - Leftover Mini Raviolis with Bacon from Saturday's dinner (the rest of it)

Dinner (6:45 pm) - Got food from Joe's BBQ and ate at Joe's Farm Grill - had onion rings, garlic fries, BBQ ribs, mac & cheese, and Grilled Pizza.  So yummy and drank iced tea.  Used some ranch dressing for the onion rings and fries.  No dessert as I was really full with this meal.  I did not eat all this food and shared with my husband and 2 kids.
