Still Working It....

Even though I have not been around much, I am still quite focused on my journey!! Now it's not only about weight's about the total package! For me, it's just not good enough to get my body fit and healthy. No it's about all aspects of my life.

  • My walk with the Lord....Am I praying, reading my Bible, going to church, serving Him? I can say yes to all these things!
  • My home....Is it clean and organized? Yes it is!
  • My yard....Is it done? Yes...with the help of a yard service. I really can't do it all!!
  • My work...Is my desk manageable? Yes and all of the projects that I was procrastinating on...are done!
Not only is all of the above done, but I'm still working hard on my health and fitness. I'm at the gym or exercising at home at least 5 days per week or more! Still eating healthy and I've got my focus on!

I heard some where....that if you can just focus on the moment and not get distracted by other things you can accomplish a lot. I've put that into motion and I find it's true. 

When I'm at work, I work! I don't think about my worries, or home, or going to the grocery store. I just focus there. Boy you cannot believe the stuff I can get done!

Same thing at home. I allot a certain amount of time for house stuff and then I focus and before you know it, my task is done and I even have a little extra time for more! 

Just like when I'm in the gym. I am not thinking about what I'm going to eat next, or about the skinny woman next to me or, I don't even think about going home. I'm focused on my task...putting my all into it. And I always leave with a great work out!

Now because of this focus and with not having so much hanging over my head, I am finding time to do crafts, read, garden, spend time with friends and family....I am having a lot of fun!

Anyway, that's what I'm up to! I am enjoying life!

Next up.....Going deeper into understanding food!
How about you...What are you up to?

Keep focused!


  1. So glad to hear you're redeeming the time Joy. You've got the right priorities with your walk with the Lord at the top of the list. Seems like when that IS the priority everything else just falls into place :)
    I'm getting stronger every week and will post about it soon on my blog sometime soon.
    Keep enjoying life!

  2. This is a great encouragement. You are doing so well at getting things done. It's lovely to hear how well you are doing.

    You could say you are a good model for success in one area breeding success in others.
