The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Exercise Goals for Week Starting 03/28/11

My exercise bike will help me meet my goals.

My exercise bike is in my room, waiting for me to use it.  It sits there patiently.  It calls to me, but I ignore it.  Still, it waits for the moment until I use it.

I believe that staying away from soda is helping me; if you remember from a previous post, I gave it up for Lent.  I've lost weight before when I stopped drinking soda.  I have also been trying to eat healthier snacks, like nuts.  I have also tried to eat more fruits and vegetables.  I think it paid off because I lost more weight.

I have lost 3 lbs. since I started my get-fit quest.  I don't want to gain it back.  I have decided to capitalize on this good news.  I want to lose more weight.  I want to tone up.

I want to rev up my weight loss.  I have the following three exercise goals for this week:

1. Use the exercise bike for 15 minutes at least 3 times this week.

2. Dance to my music any 2 days (not timing myself).

3. Use the Wii Fit 2 times this week for 15 minutes each.

I am wanting to keep up the momentum of weight loss because for a long time I had been at a plateau of 140 lbs.  I would either go up or down.  (During the day anyone can gain a few pounds after eating.)  I would weigh myself in the morning and after eating, my weight would go up.  That is highly understandable.

It is also understandable if I go up a few pounds due to gaining muscle.  I can bear that.  My body, though, cannot stand the extra weight it has right now.  My small stature begs me to lose more weight.  Since I have hit 137 lbs., which was my weight before my youngest child (who will be 6 years-old next month), I do feel better.

I just want to go further to a weight that my bones and heart can withstand.  Since I am very short, I can stand to lose another 20 lbs.  I want to aim for 10 more.  I will aim for 5lbs. to lose.  I have the goal to come down to 132 lbs.

How about you, my readers?  Do you have some fitness goals?  Do you need to lose some weight?  I recommend doing small changes.  I also recommend a small goal of a few pounds a week.

Now, if you'll excuse me; I think I'm gonna get on the Wii Fit balance board.  It's always been a favorite of mine.

Oh, my beloveds, may God bless you all with His peace and wisdom.
