Two Big Goals Day 3

I have endured many things during the past three months. I have learned a lot about myself God and my life. IT has meaning and purpose. I am grateful to have had these trials. It made me appreciate what I had. I also learned that my first impressions when I pray are usually right. The priesthood of God is the most powerful thing on earth. It helps us and guides us as men use this power to bless the lives of others, it is as if the Savior is standing beside me.
I have been cleared for good health. Heart is fixed and cancer is gone. I FINALLY can exercise. Today was an exciting day. I walked 1.7 miles and jogged/walked a mile. The mile was my first in a very long time. I did it in 17:30 which for a morbidly obese person like myself is pretty good. I have decided to write on my blog again because I have two major goals int eh next few years, and I want to write about my challenges and successes. I want to get healthier and lose over 100 lbs. I am starting with a smaller goal of 32 lbs and I hope to do that by my birthday on May 28th. This will be a great achievement as I will get out of a pound range I have been stuck in for years and I will be 20 lbs thinner than when I met my husband. I am doign good right now eating right and exercising. It feels so good. When I start my day with prayer and scripture study(or readign a general conference talk, I have good days)
My second goal in the process of taking better care of myself and losign weight and getting more healthy, is to hopefully if it is God's will get pregnant. I REALLY want to have twins and I need to get in shape and have the energy to handle them! I knwo if this is God's will it cna happen. I would be happy with just one sweet baby. If I have a boy I will name him Zerin. If I have a girl, I would love the name Sophie. If I have twin boys.. Herb likes the name Jaxon.. I like it spelled Jaxen. With effort and faith and prayer and miracles these good things can come to me.
Secondly I have a dream of running the Paris Marathon one day. I can imagine myself running hte streets of Paris happy and healthy. It will take a lot of hard work and training. This goal has replaced the old one I had of becoming a black belt. After my car accident, this was no longer possible. GO me! I really feel I can do this.

Faith and Hope it better be enough!

So I got a blessing today, Ihave had the Bronchitis and symptoms of the flu. I have faith in teh Lord and I am going ot get better. 2009 will be my year to "make a change" Just watch me!
I have been sorting through my mom's stuff in our junk room some and found a lot of my stuff from growing up. I want to write my own personal history. I think it is going to take me years to use all the stuff. I am keeping it to trigger dates and places.
Eilee has been quite fun lately. She was watching a show with us "Dont' forget the Lyrics" She got so into dancing to "Straight Up " by Paula Abdul, that she said. I cna't help it mom, but my butt wants to dance, I ahve to get up off this bean bag" I tell you three almost 4 yr olds are so cute!

Herb Finishes His Master's Degree in Computer Science with a 4.0 GPA...
Honey, you did an amazing job amidst callings, pregnant wife,a busy toddler, and all the trials we have endured together. You are AMAZING and I love you a ton!
I hope I can finish my degree before my head turns grey! This pic was taken after a wonderful Halloween. I will post that here too!
Happy New Year 2009 I am not sure it is starting off too happy. I have a cold for over a week, and still a lot of sinus pressure and have been sick twice this year with a coughing thing and it is only the 19th! UGH.. I am hoping that it gets out of my system soon and thay I will be on to a healthier year this year! I am glad that my family is not sick too. I have tried to keep them away. I hope this blog is the "most unhealthy" blog I ever write.
I am hoping ot be healthier this year...Goals to lose weight and go off my diabetes and kidney/blood pressure medicine, in hope to try to get pregnant before the year is through. DO I have any real plans? I have a great trainer named christine, a weight loss club, a treadmill, and hope will have a lot of cheerleaders. I need to do this if I want to live life and enjoy it. I have to lose like 150 lbs. Yes, I said it....150 Lbs. I know this will on ly happen in little goals....maybe 10 lbs at a time. It is a daily process. one day at a time. With God, nothing is impossible, and I hope to "move Mt Zerin" with faith like in Ether 12:30 ish in the book of mormon.

Gingerbread house

SO I've decided to get a blog and try to update it. In an effort to keep a better journal. Tonight we decorated a gingerbread house with Eilee. She kept saying "perfect" and "wonderful" as she placed each candy piece on her masterpiece. She loved it. It was a kit we had won at a Christmas party last week.

Eilee is so fun. She is very expressive and quite the little drama queen. WE aren't sure where she gets it from. I think it is from Herb's side as I have never been that way.
