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!

From Motivation to Movement: Update on Health Habits for January 2012

My water and a pedometer motivate me to move.

It has been a struggle for me to gain new, positive habits.  It should be easy to match my brain's thoughts with my body's movements.  After all, I can control what I do.  No.  It's not that easy, without concrete motivations to getting me moving on my health.

I want to give a list of my motivations for wanting to get healthier.  First, though, I want to recap what happened last week.  I managed to do the following:

1. I read the Bible with the help of
2. I put on my shoes and pedometer and walked 6 out of 7 days.  On Sunday, I decluttered for a few hours.
3. I noted my progress on my calendar.  This has helped to show me all that I have done towards my goal.
4. I have been taking my various supplements.
5. I am still crocheting and have decided to accumulate them to give to a homeless shelter or some such organization.
6. I have been drinking at least 4 bottles of water every day.
7. I still drank some soda and ate junk food.  For this coming week, I'll be consuming less of that.

Now, I want to share some specific motivation for wanting to get healthy:

1. I want to feel healthier.  
2. I want to optimize my immunity.
3. I want to move around faster.
4. I want more energy.
5. I want my clothes to fit better.
6. I would like to work to help my family financially.
7. I want to play with my kids, without getting tired quickly.
8. I want to enjoy my life with my hubby.
9. I want to live longer to see my potential grandbabies.
10. I want to be a witness to what God can do for me and others.

It's not easy to get fit.  My energy is very low.  I have terrible cravings.  We have bought healthier foods like nuts and fruits.  I'm hoping that with exercise and better eating habits, I can get healthier.

Thanks for reading about my motivations to get moving towards my health habits for January 2012.  I hope this blog entry encourages y'all to develop your own health goals.

How about you, my readers?  Do you have any new health goals for January, in keeping with New Year's resolutions?  How do you plan to improve your health this month or this year?  I encourage you to assess your current health.  It's a great opportunity to adjust your habits to improve your life.   

If you need to improve your health, in any form, please ask God to help you; He will, if you pray for His guidance.
