<3 & Stomachache

Hola, amigos! Ahorita, estoy en LCH. 🙂 (Right now, I’m at the L.C.H.)  We just got back from a great Mexican Restaurant off Rt. 41 but boy is my stomach in knots right now! Never again :).  The older I get, the more I need to eat clean for my well-being.  Jamie Eason Livefit plan FTW.  Just had some of her chocolate protein bars with almonds and some supplements— Smartblend & Digestive Enzyme.  I wanted to say that I also use a calcium supplement (since I don’t eat cheese or much dairy), a multivitamin (“to cover [my] bases”), and a Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCA) before and after a workout as well as occasionally between meals if I’m especially fatigued from the physical exertion (such as starting weights AND cardio next week- prayers as well, por favor!).  These are the basic supplments which I have found work for me from the Jamie Eason Livefit plan.  I would like to stress that fitness is an art AND a science; what works for one person might not work for another, and what works for a person NOW might not work for that same person later, either.  So here’s to following God, trial-and-error, and getting in the best health possible.  (THIS POST IS GONNA BE A LONG ONE. HOLD ON TIGHT).  Health is not just about looking great, either.  One woman who was new to the faith stated that she thought beauty was a requirement for membership in the Christian church because pew after pew held beautiful women.  What she stated that she then found was that it wasn’t a face-lift that they had but a faith-lift.  Our faces light up when we give it ALL TO HIM. 🙂  Health realms include physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, social and environmental!  You don’t have to be perfect in either one, but you should have a balance.  “SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM & these will be given to you as well.”  I like to wake up, pray, have a healthy breakfast, get ready for the day w/ worship music, make my bed and devo.

I wanted to say that my heart aches for the people here, too.  The poverty, the heartbreak.  There is only God who can handle all this hurt.  I know we are called to feel each others’ burdens in the good and bad, but I am super thankful for a God to take my problems and those of others to each night.  I really don’t know what I would do without Him.  I can’t even imagine my life sin Dios (without God!).  I pray for the sweet people here I see everyday.  Despite divorces, custody battles, poverty, hunger. etc., these people still have a drive.  Who am I to complain about not being able to buy a new coffee pot or not get a bi-weekly gel mani; thoughts like these seriously makes me sick sometimes and I wonder where my heart is.  It is so easy to slip away from God.  It takes no effort.  I think that’s the problem.  We have to keep surrending, keep fighting, and even if we do nothing, we continue to swim downstream without realization.  It takes God, each other, a day-to-day fight, but it’s worth it.

Mark 8:36- “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?”

“Take my life and let it be all for YOU and for YOUR GLORY.”
