II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Thinner on Thursday

Call it coincidence...call it ironic. For some reason, I always weigh 147.4 on my digital scale on Wednesday. Thus making my Wednesday Weigh-In's very redundant. Maybe Wednesday is my heavy day of the week...!!?? For the past 2 weeks I have tried weighing on Thursday too...and it's always a much better number! So, for the next 3 Thursdays (before I leave for my vacation on Thur. March 27) I will post my "Wednesday Weigh-In" on Thursday and we will call it "Thinner on Thursday" instead! ha ha
So, today I weighd 145 again. No loss...but I'm glad to see 145 and not 147 so I'm happy. However, by next Thursday, I AT LEAST expect it to be at 144 or less. I am going to be ridiculously careful with my diet from now till next Thursay and see what will happen.
Also, I can't hardly believe this, but a friend of mine from the gym who is a competative body builder and very tiny told me that the BEST and ONLY thing she does to trim her waistline and those pesky love handles is to take a broom stick (or empty barbell) and put it behind her neck holding with her hands and twist. From right to left back and forth---150 times and she does 3 sets a day. She was telling me that you don't want to use weights when you're working on your waistline because you DO NOT want to build muscle there and bulk up. What you want to do is tone and trim. I'm down wit it. I figure I can at least do that every day for the next 21 days and see if I can trim up my waistline. And to prove whether or not it really works, I am going to give you the measurement of my waist today and then we'll compare it in 3 weeks and see if there is any change. So my measurement today---at the bellybutton---not sucking in but totally relaxed---is 35.
I would love to challenge all of you out there to do this with me. It's not diffucult, you won't get all hot and sweaty, you can do it while you watch your favorite show, you don't need any fancy equipment and it's only for 3 weeks! If you do decide to jump on board, be sure and take your measurements RIGHT NOW so you'll have an accurate starting point!
