Weight Watchers Update:
After 3 months I finally shed 10 lbs!! That is 20 lbs since I began being more mindful of my eating and overall health; and just 13 lbs away from my ultimate weight loss goal! It has been a hard fought victory - accomplished by taking nearly daily Rosary Walks (increasing my FitBit step goal to 10,000 steps!); TRACKING everything (yes, even the cheats); and increasing my water intake (a way harder addition than it really should be!!)
Spent 2 days on A Seeking Heart (my daily radio show) this week with this INCREDIBLE new book from Heather King, published by Franciscan Media called Loaded: Money and the Spirituality of Enough. IT blew me away and was EXACTLY what I needed this week! As I continue to move beyond my addictive behavior spending money - this book brought me some fresh insights into why I never noticed my spending vs income IMBALANCE. For example - recognizing from her story that maybe my issue was a little of being too afraid to spend my own money, so I would use MasterCard's; the Mortgage Company and my husband's without a problem. Listen to these 2 JAM packed shows featuring Divine Providence; tracking EVERYTHING ... and discerning God's Will and your heart's desire!
Small Success #3
Faith is on vacation this week - she goes 11 months of the year to a special school for the deaf. We played 'stylist' one day - she was cracking me up with her 'gentle' ways; so I decided to video it and add to Instagram. At present count it was at over 1.2K views. That is both hysterically funny and profoundly sad statement of our current world!
Personally, I LOVE how she nonchalantly throws in the "ILY" or "I Love You" American Sign Language sign. It is very much deaf culture to flash the ILY sign in pictures - and apparently random videos your mom is shooting!
