The past couple of weeks have been particularly challenging. The car accident caused me some physical pain, and dealing with the insurance companies has caused me emotional pain. ALOT of emotional pain. So now, I think I’m getting a lawyer so I can heal physically without stress breaking in and causing havoc. I have a great chiropractor and I did go see a massage therapist too. However, I only made two visits to the massage therapist. The first visit was great, the second one I hurt for three days after, feeling as if someone had pinched every inch of my upper body. So, I’m not going back to that. I’ve been able to keep up with the workouts and continue to lose 2 pounds a week!
The 20/20 Lifestyle program is very easy to follow, but takes a lot of time. It’s like having a part-time job. Speaking of jobs I did quit my one part-time job. I think I was spending more money than I made. Lance and I agreed I should concentrate on writing.
Writing is going well. I attended a writers conference and spoke with two different agents about two different manuscripts and they are each interested in the one I pitched. So on the one hand that is great! Means I haven’t been so out of touch. But then there’s the time commitment!
I’ve been blessed with advice from great brothers and sisters in Christ who also happen to be best-selling authors. Add to that my very supportive husband and encouraging kids and grandkids, well, who couldn’t love this life! Don’t forget too, Jesus is the reason any of those previous elements exists.
This week I have to get my six month mammogram. Six months ago my films came back suspect, but further tests showed the spots were more likely than not to be lymph nodes. But just in case, I was advised to get a mammogram every six months. The great thing is, on the day I have to go it is supposed to be 72 degrees out! Guess who’s driving with the roof down?!
Seems no matter what Satan throws our way, with the grace and love of Jesus well, we overcome!
This time next week I hope to post my new weight in the 180′s. Right now it’s at 190.8. When I started it was 202. At five foot six it’s no great thing to be 190 but it’s better than being in the 200′s. Oh and the best thing? I went for a walk last night all by myself. Down the main street for fifty minutes! My Zune was blasting and time flew! My heart rate was up with the average about 129. Now, the only problem I have with walking to music is I tend to sashay with the beat.
Tomorrow is Tuesday. It is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice! Be glad!!! I will too.
