Pretty Pink Bike, Weigh-In, Hungry, & Ohio
Well sad and glad to report today I was down... but only .6. So now.. 201.0
This stinks cause I want to be down so bad under 200!! But it's good cause I was sooo hungry this week!! It's that time again, and yep ... I was craving CHOCOLATE all week. I ate all my FLEX points on chocolate. :/ A friend of ours moved out of state, so they brought us all their food. Well this was a huge blessing! They did have a lot of healthy food, but they also had candy & hot fudge. We have had the same jar of Nutella in the cupboard for a few months.. I am never tempted to eat it, until this week I kept sneaking spoon fulls. So bad, I know!! Today I think I am taking off of tracking, and just giving in to my cravings. I am planning on riding my bike at least 10 miles today though. I can't hold back the urge any longer though for a big satisfying brownie with hot fudge.
I just can't. :)
Thursday we are off to Ohio!! Excited and nervous! I really hope they like us, and that the staff wives are nice and inviting. There is a ladies event while there, so that should be lots of fun! I have a good feeling about this church.
Davey is so sweet. He spray painted my bike for me!! Watermelon Pink. It is tooooo cute!! I love it. It just needs a few more adjustments and will be ready for the triathlon. I was looking for a new one but we really can't afford it right now. A triathlete said online, don't buy a good bike until you do 2-3 Sprints. Borrow one if you have to. And we were blessed by my in-laws to be given this bike, which was Davey's when he was a teenager!! Can you believe it?! It runs really well too. I am still praying for a wet suit and the gas money to get there. I know he will provide.
I have been praying that God would use me, and allow me to share His gospel with someone. Would you believe that this morning a lady knocked on my door, asking about our church??!! We are usually the one's knocking doors inviting people! She said some neighbors told her we are Christian and that she wanted some info on our church. I asked her if she had a couple minuets to share some verses from the bible with her, but she had to go. I gave her a gospel tract and told her the verses on there tell her how she can know for sure she is going to heaven. I am praying she will come to church and more importantly trust Christ as her Saviour.
On Saturday we decided to go to a nearby lake we have never gone too. Well... I don't regret never going there. It was so dirty!! It was 101 here and I hoped to swim (my gym pool has been closed a week). Yeah.. what does it say when you see 3 dead fish floating in the lake and there is so much foam at the shore. The water was so murcky that with my goggles on I couldn't see in front of me. So I did not swim like I hoped to. Cody is going to be my little swimmer. He goes right into the water.. which is why we have to keep a life jacket on him at all times. He's so funny, he figured out he can float, so he goes to the shore, turns around and backs in the water while on his tummy, then flips over onto his back and floats... haha! He laughs and smiles the whole time, until he got mouths full of that nasty water! Yuck! We left after we ate our picnic.
I don't know why I am writing about my days out of order.. lol. But on Friday, I got home from the gym and see a really tall man in my house. I come in and our friend Brent is there borrowing books from Davey for school. Then I see Cody running around with a pair of my UNDERWEAR around his neck!!!!! Oh my soul. Can you say mortified??!! I snatched them (thank God they were clean undies) and threw them in my room and shut the door. When he left I was looked at Davey with a unpleasant look, and said, "Davey!! Oh my goodness!! Did you notice that?" "What your underwear? yeah." as he chuckled. "Did he notice too?" " Yeah, I told him Cody was playing in the laundry." Oh my.. MEN! They can't look for books and watch boys at the same time. :/
