It’s not so much that I don’t like Mondays. I have nothing personal against a Monday. I do dislike the first day of the week I have to go back to work whether it be a Monday, Thursday or Saturday. It could also be that I’m not really so concerned today is Monday, but that I’m just not thrilled with life in general.
DH’s computer bit the big one. As this is the primary tool needed for him to be able to do his job, that’s a setback I hadn’t really anticipated. He does have a backup system he’s working on, but it is slower, needs more RAM and whatever else… It’s frustrating to say the least and I’m not happy about all this crap that seems to be happening lately.
Health and Fitness #37: There is a yoga class and a pilates class tonight offered at the Town Club. I really think I need to go to at least one of them. Not only are they low-impact workouts, but the stress relief is more important than just about anything else. I’m thinking at this point I just might implode.
I’ve really wanted to start doing yoga again on a regular basis. I actually have a book, a CD and a mat at home. However, home isn’t an overly great place to try to do any kind of exercise. Between the DH, the kids, the dogs and life in general, it’s kind of the worst case scenario for working out. In 2008 I was doing yoga with some kind of regularity. Hopefully, this will be a great thing to come to pass. Unfortunately, as much as I want to go tonight, I don’t know that I will get dinner done in time to make that happen. *sigh* Too bad there isn’t an early morning yoga class.
Food tally for the day:
Breakfast: 1 cup of Light Chocolate Silk; 2 small Oatmeal/Banana/Cranberry cookie things (… not that great, but edible, nutritious, and not a lot of calories)
Morning Snack: Frigo Light Cheese Stick and 1/4 cup blueberries
Lunch: 2 Ezekiel Tortillas, 1 Laughing Cow Herb Cheese, 3 slices Organic deli chicken, Spinach, Sprouts and 3 Gobstoppers
Afternoon Snack: “Jazz” apple (can’t say I’m all that impressed and much prefer a honeycrisp, gala, mac or granny smith), a cup of sugar-free Cherry Jello, 1 “cookie” and 10 mixed nuts
Dinner: Pork chops, Broccoli/Rice/Cheese, Salad, Crescent rolls (at least that is the theory as I sit here contemplating what to cook)
Feeding the Spirit #37
— James 5:16 (b) —
The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Six Blessings of Prayer:
• Prayer fuels faith to dream and hope and risk;
• Prayer woos us to the Word and by our need to hear God’s response to our requests;
• Prayer teaches us trust in God by waiting upon His timing;
• Prayer reveals God’s plan and our purpose in opening up to us detailed directions for both the present and the future;
• Prayer releases God’s power to live and walk in the supernatural realm of the Holy Spirit;
• Prayer unleashes love for God — emotional, real and all-consuming.
