Faith Fitness and Laughter

And so it begins….




The next few days people will be setting goals and resolutions to get into better shape and eat better.  In the back of my mind, I am not any different than anyone else and am pretty excited about fitting in better quality foods. 

My advice?  Go easy on yourself and don’t expect what works for someone else will also work for you.  It may or may not.  Find what does work for you, stick with it, and enjoy it.  If you don’t enjoy something, you are more likely not to stick with it.

Find a good workout program, even if it’s just walking.  If you don’t see results in a short period of time, keep doing it.  Give your body long enough to make the change. 

Eat clean and drink water. Simple.


I also think that not only cleaning up your “diet” but also cleaning up other things in your life that may be cluttering it is important.

I have had the entire week of Christmas off and I have really enjoyed just having quiet time, hanging out with family and just being still.  It’s been nice to have positive thoughts instead of negative. 




This is something that has really convicted me this past week.  My mouth.  What I talk about and what I put into my thoughts.  To be honest, this is quite hard for me because I love to laugh and have a course since of humor sometimes.  I can always push the envelope when it comes to humor, but I have noticed that even course things have a negative effect on me.

Anyway, just something that I have been thinking about.



I did some meal planning yesterday and ended up making one of my favorite recipes. 


  • Tyson’s frozen cubed chicken
  • about 8-10 red potatoes
  • 1 bottle of Ken’s Lite Italian dressing

Mix all ingredients together and you have the yummiest dinner!  I don’t use the entire bag of chicken nor the entire bottle of dressing.  I just try and judge how much will fill up a 9X13 glass pan and then go from there.  I line the pan with aluminum foil and then cover it while it is cooking.

Yum and Yum.




Well….I am off to make up some turkey burgers for the week!

Getting back to normal… oh and cookies!

Well I don’t know about you, but I am so glad that the holidays are over…..  Seeing family and friends and doing cool stuff was lots of fun, but I am excited to get back to some sort of normalcy.  What about you?  Did you have a great Christmas?

Yesterday I think I spent most of the day just laying around.  I got up, ate breakfast (with coffee of course) and then watched some tv for a bit and then started taking down decorations.  Oh the tree is till up, but I just wanted to get all of the other stuff down.  I will probably leave the tree up until after New Years, but then it’s coming down. 

My brother and I went to see the new Hobbit movie, which put me in the mood to watch the Lord of the Rings.  Classic. 

If you haven’t seen it, Peter Jackson does not disappoint. 


I am ready for the sweets and candy to leave the house and to get back to some sort of routine eating.  I’m going to the store in a bit to stock up on some veggies and some fruit.  I have been a cookie making machine since the Fall season started so I’m going to take a break from making them.  Sad really.  I love cookies.  Winking smile






























There have been lots of cookies! 


My workouts the last few months have been sporadic at best.  I would go days and not work out and then get one in and just feel like I had to start all over.  This made me not want to continue so I would go more days without working out.  That’s gotten better, but I’m still not on a set schedule of work outs.  Mainly due to work and feeling the need to take a break from it all. 


Welp, I hope you have a great Saturday!  Talk to ya soon!


Merry Christmas!!

Hello there my friends, how are you?  It’s been a while hasn’t it?  I do apologize for my absence, but it was actually pretty nice to take a break.  I didn’t really plan on taking one that long, but felt it was needed.  I also didn’t plan on posting on Christmas Day either, but the time was there so I took advantage of it. 

First let me say that I hope wherever you are, you had a wonderful Christmas and that I hope you were able to spend it with someone that you loved. 


As this year comes to an end, a lot of people will be reflecting on their lives and hopefully what the coming year will hold.  Some will want to make changes in their lives and some will want things to remain the same.  I’ll be honest, this year has had it’s ups and downs and I for one am glad that it’s coming to an end.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s still been a great year but new beginnings can actually be a good thing.

Even when we feel like God is starting from scratch with our own lives, things are still good.

I do feel like this year has changed me.  Some good, some bad, but changed none the less.  I hope to share some of those things with you, but I’ll save that for another day.









Christmas cookies!

As this day comes to an end, I am so thankful to have spent it with family.  To be surrounded by love is one of the most amazing gifts. 


I hope you had an amazing day and I will talk to you very soon!!
