Are You A Morning Person?

I aAre You A Morning Personm NOT a morning person. I just can not people until I am actually awake. I mean like 2 cups of coffee and a quiet Bible study, awake!

What it Used to be Like

I was so ill in the mornings that I finally made the decision that I was not getting out of bed until the two oldest kids were out the door to go to school (MK was too little for school). I figured it was better for me to stay in bed than for them to start their day with me yelling at them. Continue reading

The Day After…

It is such a relief for this election to finally be over. I feel so blessed to live in a country where we have the freedom to vote for our leaders. That being said, it seems that this election has sparked a lot of separation within our country. The tempers have flared to an uncontrollable and destructive flame that is destroying relationships.

Now that the election is over I hope that we can put all of that behavior and anger behind us. We live in an amazing country. We are free to have our own thoughts and beliefs. What we must realize is that no matter how passionate we are about our own beliefs, others hold theirs just as dear.

We must learn to be respectful of other people and their differences. Let people have their opinion! It is what makes this country so great. Understand that your opinion does not make you right and me wrong. It makes us different. And this is okay, because God created each of us different and with our own purpose in this world.

My UP3 Band and How it is Helping Me…

While I was watching a Crystal Paine Periscope, she mentioned her UP3 band and all that it could do. I had been using my step counter on my phone, but it is quite limited in what it does, plus if I really want to count steps I have to keep my phone on me at all times! This is stressful to me. I do not like being attached to my phone.

I did a little research and found that the UP App has some of the best ratings out there for the active band market. I downloaded the App to see how it worked and loved it. I easily synced it with my phone step counter and I was off!
One of the greatest things about the app and counter is that it keeps up with how many calories I am allowed to have based on my activity level. I am loving this!  So I have put in a weight goal of 130 and the app gives me a starting point of 1,200 calories for the day. Put in food and it subtracts calories. Take steps or get in a workout and it adds calories. You do not have to do all of that counting and figuring yourself.
After using the App for a few and doing some more research I am now ready to make the commitment to purchase the UP3 Band! I have talked with my wonderful hubby, and while he thinks it is a little silly, he said if I want it to go for it!
Isn’t he the best!!!
So it is ordered and on its way!

I will update you with more information after I get it.
