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 the Pedometer to the Progress: Update on Health Habits for January 2012

My water and a pedometer motivate me to move.

I went through an interesting week.  We struggled financially.  Then, my side started to hurt again.  I think it was the caffeine that started affecting my kidneys.  It slowed me down from seeing any progress on the pedometer.

Fortunately, I did have some good news.  Here is an update on my progress:

1. I'm still reading my Bible.

2. I walked 6 out of 7 days.  The day I didn't, my left side was hurting me.

3. I stopped taking my supplements.  Instead, I am taking a liver tonic because the last time I had the pain, I felt better afterwards.

4. I drank my allotted water 6 out of 7 days.  I'm okay because I started two days earlier.  Yes, Saturday was the first time I only drank 2 out of at least 4 bottles of water.

5. Still ate junk food and drank soda.  I can't believe that my resolve is not strong enough about this.  I can't say NO to hubby when he offers to buy me soda.

6. We bought a larger refrigerator.  Yes!  Now, I can buy grassfed beef and fruits and veggies in bulk.

7. I think I've lost 2 lbs.  My blue jeans fit differently.  Yes!

Plans for the upcoming week:

1. I hope to cook more meals, instead of getting takeout.

2. I hope to make more smoothies.

3. I hope to eat more fruits and veggies. 

4. I hope to walk 4,000 steps per day.

I'm very excited because of the bigger refrigerator.  It will allow us to buy more of the good stuff and be able to see it.  In the past, we had the fruits and veggies hidden inside a white drawer.  Now, the drawers are see through.  Also, we were needing a bigger refrigerator because the one we were using was too small to hold enough food for just one week for a family of six.  I thank God that we finally found this refrigerator.

Well, thanks for reading about my pedometer helping me progress 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.
