A Warm Bowl of Oatmeal...

Clue #2 of a True Snacker- You get more excited about finding a random bag of dried cranberries in your cupboard than knowing your freezer is stocked with four different kinds of meat.

I got a gym membership this morning, and worked out on the stationary bike.  The doctor told me yesterday that I do indeed have plantar fasciitis in my left foot, which means that not running for 3 weeks has been a good thing.  I have been walking to work every day, and eating smaller portions, and am encouraged to see some headway with the scale.  Jake and I have been talking about the idea of me getting a gym membership for a while, and one of our main concerns has been that I won't use it (or that I can just work out at home).  Duly noted, so we are going to try this out for a month to see if I actually stick with it.  Apparently I burned 323 calories this morning, and biked 16 km. WOW! I was pretty happy walking out of there.

I came home and made myself some mushy oatmeal with cinnamon, honey, raisins, and flax seed.  Yay for healthy eating! It's time to purge myself of all that ice cream birthday cake.

Speaking of that, thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes and the gifts.  I feel very loved, and am excited for what God is going to do in this, my 25th, year.

Hi Snacky Poo
I hope things go well for you with your new Gym membership and that you will get the desired results from your hard work.

Sorry to hear about your foot problems though.
I did read up on in from the link you included here and I hope that it will be something that you can get relief for and that it will eventfully improve.
Poppa has got into the oatmeal since the winter and we have it every morning and if he has had to skip brekkie he will still has to have his daily bowl when we come home.
I am sorry we missed talking to you on your birthday but it sounds like you had great day as you celebrated 25!!
We continue to pray that God will continue to direct your steps as you move into another year.

Lots of love NAN xoxox
