You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you Psalm 63:1a

Sometimes after a long run or an especially hard workout, I can barely get the water down fast enough. Imagine a hot day and how refreshing that iced tea or lemonade or ice water is. That is metaphor for what God wants our quiet time to be with him. Pull up a stool at his feet, drink it in and be quenched by Him. Everything else will fall into place after that.

Have a great week ladies!

I'm not sure I can make it, but that's my goal. (And I mean sugary stuff, not something that has a form of sugar in it, like milk.)

Also, after next week, I'm back to Phase 1 of SB. I know it works for me, and I know what to eat and not eat, so it's simple for me to implement. We just have lots of food in the house right now that isn't SB friendly, and I don't want it to go to waste. Also, it will be much easier once the dc go back to college - I simply won't have any of the foods to avoid in the house.

While I'd love to lose 50 pounds, I think 40 is a more reasonable goal for me. My first goal, besides the no-sugar thing, is to lose 10 pounds by Valentine's Day.

Sigh. I really hate the thought of doing this again. I did so well last time then it all went out the window. I'm not sure I have it in me again.


Blessings,
Elise

I want something different for exercise, but I don't want to spend any money. Some google searching tonight led to FitnessBlender. As far as I can tell, it's totally free - no registration even. There is a wide variety of videos, and the search feature lets you choose difficulty levels, length, and type of workout. I thought maybe someone here might be interested.

Eta: I tried to include a hyperlink but it won't work. Here's one - it's just long. http://www.fitnessblender.com/v/full-length-workouts/?l=24&a mp;p=2&str=&time_min=&time_max=&cal_min=& ;cal_max=&difficulty[]=&type[]=&equipment[]=&body_focus[]=

Almost 30 days without any caffeine--not chocolate either.

I do need some coffee to "clear the chute" before a long run, which is allowed on the whole 30. This morning, I had half a cup. Just an hour later, I had the shakes so badly and it was coursing through my blood stream!

I'm not so naive to think I will never have another soda or chocolate. However, I can't believe I was downing 3 or 4 diet sodas a day, on purpose, for the caffeine!

I could probably eat this on a daily basis. You can omit the beans if you want to lower the carbs, but they add a really great flavor. You can also sub your favorite salad dressing.

3 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 cups romaine lettuce
2 oz sweet mini peppers, sliced into rings
1/2 c jicama, cut into small bite-sized cubes
1/2 c black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c English cucumber, cut in half lengthwise and sliced
2 T Newman's Own Light Italian Dressing

I usually throw it all into a tupperware container, put the lid on and shake well to evenly distribute the dressing.

As written it's 367 calories, 35 carbs, 33g protein, 9g fat. If you omit the beans the carb count drops to 16, calorie count drops to 257, but you also lose 7g of protein. I've also eaten it without the lettuce and almost prefer it. It's a LOT of salad.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4-5

This verse seemed so appropriate for this week. Remember to not let the day of Thanks become a weekend of grazing or a downhill slide into the new year. Make a plan and stick with it. You make the plan, so it is all up to you. Be realisitic, but temper it with some good boundaries.

Have a great week ladies!

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:10-11 ESV

Don't go into battle alone, be prepared! Put on the full armor of God so that you can be strong against temptation.

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise. Ephesians 5:15 (NIV)

If you know you get the 3 o'clock munchies, plan ahead. Going to a potluck? Bring a lot of something you can eat to share. Busy day ahead? Get up early to get the exercise done first.

There are many ways life can get in the way of our healthy journey, but it doesn't need to be so. It just takes some wise planning.

I haven't been on TGT for ages. At the beginning of October, I started eating South Beach-ish again, but then my mom died, and any sort of eating/exercising was out the window. I was simply in survival mode.

So, mid-November I got started again. I'm trying to limit my calories to 1300 a day, and I've been exercising 5 days a week, usually 65 or 70 minutes each. Treadmill and strength training. So far, in five weeks, I've lost about 5 pounds. Not great, but better than gaining.

Once a month I meet with a personal trainer at the gym. She helps me learn a few new exercises to add variety and help me not get too bored. I now have three strength training routines. I don't hate it, but I wish it didn't take so much time. It seems like if we go to the gym, it's almost impossible to accomplish anything else in the evening.

Last week, this week, and next week, I'm shooting for six days a week, and adding an extra 10 minutes on the treadmill to help me not gain weight over Christmas and New Years. I don't expect to lose any, but I'd really like not to backtrack.


Blessings,
Elise

So... I missed the first of the month for updates. With school starting and Dan's mom being so sick, life has just been crazy.

I'm determined to get back to exercising three days a week. Now that fall is here, we started our gym membership again, and I'm going to force myself to go after work Monday.

Even with all the travel and being at the hospital, we've done pretty well with our eating, and I'm happy to report I've lost 6 more pounds. That brings me to a total of 25 since the end of October 2015. These six pounds came off very quickly - not sure why or how, but I'll take it!

THM is now almost second nature for me. It was a struggle at the beginning, but I'm glad I stuck with it.

How about you? What's working for you? What's not?


Blessings,
Elise

CHFWeb Trading Post Guidelines

First a note to those involved in regular commerce on the web: We have always operated CHFWeb freely as a ministry and have never profited from it at all. We offer banner advertising to help pay for some of the ever-increasing costs but revenue from this has not covered expenses. Thus most would agree that it is unreasonable for dealers and small businesses to materially profit from our efforts without sharing in the costs associated with maintaining this area. --so if you desire to use the Trading Post as a business or means of profiting, we ask that you email us for advertising rates and we welcome your active involvement in covering the expenses of this venture!


The CHFWeb Trading Post is for CHFWeb participants to buy, sell, or trade materials of interest to Christian homeschooling families. This area is provided free of charge for individuals who are already participating in the other areas of CHFWeb. (Messages by individuals who are only posting on the Trading Post area, and not involved in other areas of CHFWeb, will be removed.)

Dealers or participants who are doing this as a business should email us for our advertising rates at: tamara.eaton@gmail.com .

Please use the subject line to identify your product and keep your post short and to the point! Please include prices for each item and note if this includes shipping charges. Please make sure you include your email address so participants can email you to work out details.

**We ask that participants not post more than one message on the Trading Post a day (you're welcome, however, to list more than one item in your message).**

This section is not for discussions, you should use email to exchange shipping addresses and work out arrangements or ask further questions. All discussions will be removed from this section.

CHFWeb is not responsible for any of these transactions. If you have a problem with one of the participants here, please make every attempt to work it out by email. We specify this board is for CHFWeb participants since we have confidence that the vast majority of Christian homeschooling families here will be honest and fair in their transactions, but in the rare case there is a problem, please email us at tamara.eaton@gmail.com so others will be aware and learn from your mistake!

Remember Catie, my student who has lymphoma? I hadn't even met her yet when I asked you to pray for her--she was being transferred to my class for the new semester.

She told me today that it's been determined that she is a "fast responder", so her chemo regimen has been reduced from 4 months to 2 months! Very Happy

Thanks for all your prayers for her. Praise God! And please continue to pray...she's not out of the woods yet by any means.

...are at Messiah College in PA, as we speak.

Ds has been at the cc college, living at home. The other two went off to Bible school; he didn't want to go, which was fine with us.

Suddenly, he has decided that he's headed to Christian college, which shocked us all.

He played with the men's bb team today, dh walked a track with the very nice bb coach, ds is staying with some students and attending class tomorrow. He's also been chatting with some guidance type people about transfering and all of that.

Pray for wisdom for him, if you think of it.

does not have it in writing, but was verbally offered a full-time job today. There are some complications with some other freelance relationships that he has. The offer, if it comes through is *very* generous and might mean that he could completely pay of his loan this year. Education may be attached, as well.

Please pray for clear direction for him, if you think of it...

I don't always have time to post to each request... but feel guilty for posting on some and not others. Embarassed Silly... but I want you to know that I am praying.

It's that time of year when the success and failure of children is becoming apparent and parents are looking for solutions. Many of them are looking at home schooling as an option.

Please pray for ears to hear as God calls some families to home schooling.

Yes, I have a friend in this situation, but it occurred to me that I should be praying a little bigger than just this one family.

Hi all,
I have a job interview on Wednesday morning for a choral music position at the Christian high school I graduated from. It's a part-time gig, and it's been advertised as K-12, and I'm going in asking them to split it and hire me just for 6-12, and hire someone else for K-5.

I'm feeling ambivalent about going to work outside the home, especially for what will probably be a fairly small salary. But it may also provide some tuition benefits for my kids, which we'll need. (We are planning to send kids to school next year, because I need a break, what with being the sole breadwinner and all.) And I am kind of excited about the possibilities of directing choirs again.

Anyway, would you please pray that God would give clear leading to both me and the school administrators? I really don't want to take a job if it's not His leading.

Thanks,
Laura

UPDATE: I got the job! They were willing to split the K-12, so I'll be directing the middle school and high school choirs. I am seeing this as God's leading, because there certainly were opportunities for Him to close the door, and He blew the door open. I'm going to school today to meet with a group of my future students--pray for wisdom for me as I talk with them--they've been through a lot of upheaval, with a string of very short-term teachers in the last 5 years. I'm looking forward to getting started! Thanks for all the prayers!

She posted this in Chats to get some tips, too, but I wanted to put it here, as well.

Thanks for joining with me in praying:

- that her baby turns and is in the perfect position

- for protection and no complications for Sue and her precious baby

- all to go well with her family at home!

Thank you!

Hi, gals,
My shoulder injury has not gotten better in the last month of physical therapy. In fact, I've LOST range of motion, and my pain level has increased. And something has changed in the last 3 days: I've had several flashes of pain that were so bad I almost passed out, and the sitting-at-rest pain level is significantly greater.

I'm back to my doctor on Monday morning, and I think he'll probably refer me to an orthopedic surgeon. My p.t. gal said she thought it was time for an MRI.

So, I need prayer. First, for pain relief/control. It's bad--and it's keeping me from sleeping. Second, for healing of the injury. And third, for financial provision--we have a very high insurance deductible, so all of this, so far, is coming out of our pocket. The timing is bad, too, because we're about to reach the beginning of the next insurance year, so we'll have to start on the deductible again. Kirk is in seminary f.t., and I am the breadwinner right now. All that to say, I'm stressed about how this injury is going to impact our financial situation, and possibly Kirk's ability to stay at full-time status if he were to need to find a job.

Thanks for your prayers, ladies--I so appreciate you faithful pray-ers.

Laura

UPDATE: I went back to my g.p. on Monday, and he referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, who, miraculously, had an appointment open yesterday. So I saw him, and he thinks it's adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) with a possible partial tear of the rotator cuff. He gave me a steroid injection and more p.t. I go back to see him in 3 weeks, and if the injection is not helping at that point, it'll be an MRI and either a sedated joint manipulation or surgery. Thanks for the prayers--keep them up--I'm still hurting a lot!

My sister saw an ambulance and police car at my single mom friend's house the other night. By the time I got there, no one was home other than the dog. The last time my friend was hospitalized, the teen daughter was able to drive her, but then could not sign herself out of the hospital because she was not an adult, but I missed the call. This time, I drove to the hospital but could not find them.

Meanwhile: friend had recently given up her landline, and I had lost her cell phone number. I've been dogging her house, trying to connect. Finally, today, I realized that the dog was now gone. I went to a mutual friend's house, who had not heard from her, called her church, etc. Finally, my friend in local town government finally was able to dig up her number.

Phew. She's fine. Her daughter had been sick with what they thought was meningitis earlier in the week. The hospital that I went to sent her home, but her symptoms got worse. The mom had to call the ambulance to take her to the bigger city hospital.

Wow...I'm sad that the dd is sick, but am so relieved. They are in another part of the state, staying with extended relatives for now.

Our forecast is in the triple digits until next week. My youngest plays softball and I hope they will cancel until cooler weather comes. I don't like heat either, but am thankful for a/c.


Love and prayers,

"How and Where to Teach" ... It was as if my heart was squeezed tight and, like a soaking wet sponge, a flood of tears was released that I could not stop. My tears literally fell onto the floor. This reaction is not an everyday occurrence to me, but I know that I was tremendously moved by parents with a heart to teach their children.
