Week 2 check in and my mini pumpkin

Here we are at the end of week 2.

Well..how did I do.
Well I did 1 day of intentional exercise. It hurt.

Then the day we went hiking was about 2 hours and let me tell you it took a few days to recover.
Even hubby was worn out.


sometimes this is how I feel on this journey. Like I am on this path alone.

I have no umph to get up and exercise. I mean duh..that's how I got this way.

But I have the Lord, you all, and the fitness group!  So I am going to keep pressing on.

Positives I learned, reached this week.
1. I can hike a trail and enjoy doing it!
2. Going up and down the stairs in my condo helps alot!
3. I have less heart burn from eating better!
4. Prayer is a place I love to be in. My Lord gives me strength.
5. After the hurt is gone...I can breath so much better!

So what am I doing this week. Week 3??
I have carved out time to exercise and I am not going to miss it!
No matter what!
I will share next week!!!!!

I few weeks ago me and MJ visited a shop and I have to show you what I picked up.

Fall in Northern Arizona

Well..hubby and I took off on a day adventure up into the cool pines of Northern Arizona.

It was a cool day. Started out at about 67 degrees when we were in Oak Creek Canyon. 



We stopped a few times to take pictures and have lunch. This is a selfie taken by me. 
There is a creek that runs through this part and it was nice sitting outside
listening to the creek run.


Umm we did get lost a few times. I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact hubby has the map upside down. :)


So off on a 3.3 mile hike in West Fork. This is the sign that greeted us. I love bears.
The soft stuffed cuddly kind. LOL


Oak Creek Canyon is near Sedona. Red Rock country. Trust me this picture does not due God's beauty any justice.
It is so much more deep red in person.


Now..this is me, crossing one of the creeks along our hike. 
I am not an outdoorsy kinda girl.
My shoe got wet twice.
and I grumbled ALOT. But I did it!


Then we headed north of Flagstaff arizona on a back road. We seen lots of baby mule deer. Hubby got some great pics. Will have to post them soon.
I love driving down these old woodsy roads.
It was 47 degrees here. I was about ready to turn on the heat!


Doesn't God make the most beautiful creations! Breath taking in person.

Well how did I do?

Happy Monday morning to you.
I hope you have a great weekend!

Mine was very productive. I helped a friend clean out her garage. Got more to do on that. I got a lot done on orders that I have.

I wanted to show you what I bought from Brenda at The Rusty Thimble


Isn't he adorable. I Love Brenda's things. I love supporting fellow artists.

--------
As for my exercise challenge..
This is going to be lengthy.

Monday me and hubby walked at a park near us. It was cool in the evening about 88. Yes that is cool for us out in Arizona.

We walked about 25 minutes around a beautiful pond. 5 minutes in my thighs were screaming at me. Literally I think everyone could here. But then they stopped.

I thought I can do this! About 10 minutes in to the walk my lover back and hips decided to join in the screaming and aching. 

That continued the whole walk.

I cried when i got in the car. I cant't do this I told hubby. He said you can and you just did,

I didnt exercise at all that week until Saturday and Sunday. So I only did 3 days instead of 4. Honestly this is so very hard for me.

Us humans we dont want pain, we dont want to suffer.

This week begins week two. This week I am going to be doing arms bands and leg bands. 

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers.
With God I can do this!

Monday and a challenge

Good Monday morning bloggers!

I have decided to do a fitness challenge. Oh why? 
Well I feel the Lord is tugging hard at my heart to get healthy.

I posted a few months back about it and honestly have done nothing other then gather 
information.

I have learned to drink more water. Less soda. 
We are eating more "real" food and less processed, but we are a long way away from a total change.

SO I prayed and prayed and I feel this challenge will be good for me.

I am not going to lie, I am scared. Scared of what?

Honestly..about how much I KNOW I am going to have to work at it and KNOW this is going to hurt and not be fun!

I am not a person who enjoys working out at all!!

The last time I was "thin" I was in high school so I know this will be tough.

BUT I have a savior who is holding my hand, who will give me wisdom, as long as I choose to receive it.

So...



I am taking the peak313. 5 week challenge. 
I DO have a great partner for this. It is my husband John.
Oh Lord help us both. I can be so cranky sometimes. 

I have chosen my 4 workout days. Each session 25min. There is a scripture for each week.
I will come to my blog every week and let you know how I did that week.

I am asking for prayers. Prayers that I hear the Lord through this challenge and listen to his voice.
That when he encourages me I don't get upset and give up!

If you would like to do the challenge you can. Here is the link: Peak313
