Give and Take~ Shine in 49: Day 33

I’ve been thinking today a bit about GIVING…over the past several years I’ve really been blessed because of what I’ve GIVEN to God, to my friends, to my clients and to perfect strangers who’ve found me on the internet through a blog post, picture, etc …it is true that when you GIVE you do RECEIVE.

…Giving also can create vulnerability: Giving opens us up to be hurt, disappointed or feeling like we’ve been taken for granted. I’ve often felt hurt or disappointed and that my giving has been taken for granted many times — BUT!— the Blessings I’ve received from GIVING always outweigh the pain. Staying focused on the positives of giving always makes me want to give more and help more people and love more!! I don’t ever want to get jaded or fearful regarding how my GIVING will be received. Don’t EVER be Afraid to GIVE!! Your blessings will COME!!

I’ve had a couple GREAT days~ Tues night we had another family bonfire and then yesterday Travis “kidnapped” me for a date day~ we had a BLAST together just talking and loving each other! It was wonderful!!! We didn’t workout yesterday, but we did make it there today for a chest workout.
AND GUESS WHAT??!!!  we had an amazing workout = some more great bonding time!!  LOVE IT!

The rest of my day has been spent on website stuff and cleaning my house. I am also planning on going running after my salmon digests smile

keep on GIVING !!
Love,

Weekend is ON!

Tonight Gunner and I got in our 4th lifting workout for the week, YAY!!  He’s already getting stronger and says he’s gained 7 pounds (not sure on that, but he is up to 114!)…I’m so proud of him and his effort. He’s going to be a big strong boy by this football season!

Anyhow, The kids are so fired up that the weekend is here and so am I!! I’m going out for dinner tonight: Tomorrow is watching some football, a bonfire,  the UFC and more football on Sunday will round out my weekend!!

In addition to the fun stuff one of my DD’s has a birthday party, so that’ll mean some driving around- I also would like to get in a solid squat workout.  My new gym doesn’t have a free weight squat rack, so I’m planning to go to my old gym or get in a good workout at my house on my squat rack!  THESE LEGS NEED THE WORK!!

Today is cycle day 3 and my first weigh in was horrid!! I was holding tons of water and weighed 132–eeeeekkkk!! But by 5pm tonight I weighed 129 again~ Whew!  I hate hormone bloats!  Anyhow~ buffing officially starts on Sunday and I plan to hit it VERY HARD!  Time to push myself to the limit, no more pussy footing around!!

Peace out….

It’s time for me to go OUT!!

Happy Easter!


Happy EASTER my dear friends!!!

Today I am Praising Jesus for the miracles he’s done in my life and body!! I am going to live in paradise for eternity because of HIS love!!!

Last-night we “the BEST party ever” as my DD Gracie put it….we had a fun family bonfire.
Here are a couple pics:

Today we’ve basically ATE and watched the Masters…I was really rooting for Mickelson to win..he had a CHANCE but didn’t, tooo bad!  I cooked fajitas for lunch and a turkey dinner tonight.

The gym was closed today and it was raining out today~perfect for a DAY OFF!!

I am fired up for a great week of weight loss~
WHOOOHOOO!!!
