Beautiful Things - Gungor

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God today is nearly over.
  • Thank you God I finally got to watch the Star Trek movie I haven't been able to for months.
  • Thank you God for Your Provision.
  • Thank you God for toothpaste.
  • Thank you God You are in control.
  • Happy Birthday to my niece, MD!  She turns 3 today!  Her birthday party is tomorrow!
  • I was hoping today my husband would hear from HDP regarding whether he got the job or not.  It seemed like they loved him, but he didn't get any calls from them and I am very disappointed.  It seemed like it was a perfect company for him to work for and that he could grow and it's in line with our values.
  • Today I'm feeling sort of funky in mood.  
  • Talked to the IRS about a notice I got sent.  The lady explained to me that it's a generic thing and don't worry about it and to disregard it.  Okay.  But, then she informed me about something else that I have asked on several occasions in the past and they said there was no action on my part, but it turns out there is, so now I am bummed.  I will probably need to consult with someone that knows about these things so I don't end up in any trouble.
  • My husband has an interview setup with a different company for Monday.  He's talked to a number of people on the phone today about jobs, so that is good.  There is rarely a week day that goes by that he doesn't at least get one phone call and he gets numerous emails.  He is positive and it's just a matter of time that he will land a job.  
  • I saw a picture my husband took of me and I feel like I look horrid and that I actually look fatter now than let's say in March, when I wasn't exercising.  So, as a result, maybe my body is thinking since I'm doing too many workouts and it's stressful for my body, it's hanging onto the fat instead of releasing it.  So, I will back down to 3 workouts a week - maybe like Mon/Wed/Sat or Mon/Thurs/Sat.  We'll see.
  • Thankful my husband is very positive and upbeat and I'm trying hard not to show my disappointment in the companies that he's gotten so close to being hired but not getting the job.  He would do a great job for them and be such a great asset.

    • 9:45 pm - 5:30 am (7.5 hrs) - I got woken up about 2-3 times last night either by my husband or noise in other parts of the house, so I shaved off 15 min.

    Notes:  Good workout.  I shaved off 1 min. 20 sec from the first time I did this workout.  Good job.  I did do reverse crunches as opposed to Get Up Sit Ups because the sit ups make me very nauseated.  Anyway, I don't know that I'm actually losing bodyfat right not and it seems like I'm actually fatter judging by a picture I saw of me.  I know my body did pretty well when I worked out 2 times a week, so I'm going to reduce to 3 intense workouts, and 1 easier workout a week in her ZAbs Series.

    And I will be more disciplined with my diet, controlling my portions better and be more intentional about my eating, making better choices.  Eliminating all sugary refined sugar drinks, but not my post workout smoothies, which are all natural sugars.
