Welcome to another Thankful Thursday. What are you thankful for? I am thankful for new beginnings. God truly blessed me back in September, by saving my life. That has given me a new beginning. Spring will be here in a few weeks, woo hoo, my favorite season. A time of renewal, I am looking very forward to it. I am starting a time of renewal in my life. Starting Monday, Feburary 27, I am beginning a 90 day fitness challenge. It is time to get out of my recliner(or, my throne, as lovebug calls it, lol) and get my body moving. Our spare bedroom, that had become, our junk room, has been transformed into "Denise's Gym". I have my exercise equipment in there, and we moved my stereo in there, so I can shake my booty, until it falls off, lol I have a dry erase board hanging on the wall, where I am going to encourage myself daily. Go Denise Go!! We found a new park close by our apartments, that I am going to walk at once a day, everyday. It is a really nice park, it is owned by a church, that is across the street from the park. Of course, I will also be dieting, have gained some weight since I came home from rehab. When I came home, I was weighing 113, I now weigh 134. My doctor that treats my diabetes, wants me to weigh, no more than 120. So, that means, I need to lose 14 pounds. But, actually, I want to lose 24 pounds, so I can weigh 110 . I want to thank my friend Marsha for all of her encouragement. She is also doing the 90 day fitness challenge, and has lost 60 pounds so far, woo hoo!! I am very proud of her. I would appreciate your prayers, as I begin this challenge. Blessings upon you all.
