I thought I had only lost half a pound, but when I put my weight in on myfitnesspal.com; it showed one pound loss. I don’t know how because I sure haven’t tried. It’s been horrible.
My heart just isn’t in it. Still doing my quiet time, still doing my scripture references; so what has changed? Not sure exactly. Laziness has kicked in I guess, as I am not journaling my food entries anymore.
We implemented a schedule in our home this week.
The Lord had been putting it on my heart; then it was confirmed through Mom2Mom on Sunday night. (He has also put it on my heart to plan a monthly menu. I will be working on that next!)
My Monday morning prayer time was mostly praying and asking God to give me a schedule for the kids. Immediately He gave it to me. I am still in awe. With all the appointments we have for speech and therapy for Christopher; getting Chris and Kayla to PSC and Kaitlyn to school, we had to have SOME flexibility; so I simply explained, “this is the schedule God has given me.” It is NOT written in stone; but is a guide. (If I told Christopher it was to be followed exactly “like this,” he would have melt down after melt down from changes.)
We have been waking him up at 6:15 every morning when we get Kaitlyn up. My mornings have started at 5 a.m. (and the occasional 5:15 when I JUST. CAN’T. GET. OUT. OF. THE. BED!) so I can have my time with the Lord.
Since day one of implementing the schedule, Christopher has been asleep BEFORE 8:00! We have turned the television off by 7 P.M. and withing 30 to 45 minutes he (and Kaitlyn) are out. It has been amazing. Still having troubles with the melt downs and aggression; but not as bad as it has been. Christopher LOVES to watch the cooking channel. We have the most basic of basic cable; but still get the Food Network! I told him Friday night’s would be the night’s he can watch cooking. He is glad; but emotional (he is very tired).
Over the last few weeks I have sensed the Lord is preparing us for a change. I would appreciate your prayers as we seek Him to see what He has in store for our family. And please pray I can get my cravings under control!
Trusting in Him as He grows my faith,
