Your Best Life and O You!

Hi Neighbors!

Are you living your life to be the best you can be?  Are you encouraging your family to be the best they can be?  What goals do you have set for yourself and your family?

As many of my neighbors know, I found out just a little over a year ago that I am diabetic.  Since that time I have had to make some major changes in my life.  I have had to completely revise my eating habits and start exercising on a regular basis.  I have to say, this is one area in my life that was truly lacking.  I think the hardest thing I had to do was give up my sweet tea.  Being a Southern girl, I used to drink my tea super sweet.  I completely stopped white sugar and strictly count carbs.  By doing this, I was able to get off my medication completely within about 6 weeks.  I still have a long way to go, but I am steadily working towards a goal.  Yes, there are times when I am ready to quit, but I know for my health I need to keep on.  This is one of my goals!

Living the busy life we live between, raising our children, ministry work, and just plain being a wife and mother I had to also to make schedule changes.  My morning time with the Lord and reading the Bible are very special to me.  I feel that this is an important part of my life and plays a major part in who I am.  Because of this, I am raising my children to spend time with the Lord and strive to be the best that they can be. Each one of them has experienced different facets of the ministry, from ministering on the streets, nursing homes and even prison ministry.  Another one of the goals in my life!

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this.
