Food for Thought

"True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior. The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior."
--Boyd K. Packer, Ensign, May 2004, 79

I think that it is interesting that you can study the gospel and not only spiritually behave better, but physically behave better as well. The scriptures bring power to our lives in all areas....even our diets...especially our diets.

Food behavior and my Book of Mormon study correlating positively. Who would have thought that would happen?

Week 1 Down..Yeah, Really!

Well, I am adjusting to the process with Weight Watchers online. I really struggled in some areas. I have learned that being home is not the right thing for my diet plan. I struggle to eat the right things. I cannot exercise when there is an inch of ice on the ground...now with 4 inches of snow on top of that.

But, I am down 3 pounds. Yay for me!

Here's to keeping on track.

Lost and Found

Well, here we are in a new year with resolutions on our mind (well, at least those that we haven't already given up on). Nearly two years ago, I lost more the 20 pounds through exercise and controlling food consumption (No shock there).

Well, it looks like I've found them again. So, I am just laying it out there for all 3 readers of my blog. I signed up for another year at the gym. I signed up with the Weight Watchers Points Plus program online. I have recommitted myself to getting it together to feel better about me.

So, there you have it! I am no longer beating myself up about it...I'm just getting back "on the wagon" or should I say back on the treadmill/elliptical/stair climber/whatever. Wish me luck!!!

Ultimate Laziness

Maybe this is why we have dings in the paint of our car...Hmmm...

Enduring is, in fact, really an endurance thing!

"Enduring to the end, or remaining faithful to the laws and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout our life, is a fundamental requirement for salvation in the kingdom of God...Therefore, enduring to the end is not just a matter of passively tolerating life's difficult circumstances or "hanging in there." Ours is an active religion, helping God's children along the strait and narrow path to develop their full potential during this life and return to Him one day...Enduring to the end is a process filling every minute of our life, every hour, every day, from sunrise to sunrise. It is accomplished through personal discipline following the commandments of God."
--Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "Have We Not Reason to Rejoice?", Ensign, Nov 2007,.Pages 18–21

Every day. Every hour. Every minute. It is indeed accomplished as a disciple through discipline.

Wow. What a quote!
