Coffee Addict

So I’m on day seven of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred, the workouts are finally getting easier although I’m still doing modified push-ups.  I think I can handle moving up to level two.  I stepped on the scale before my shower hoping….hoping…and nothing.  I still haven’t lost any weight.  I’ve been doing okay eating, well maybe I had an egg biscuit sandwich yesterday, that probably wasn’t good, and maybe I did have some chocolate chips before bed last night.  Okay, I need to start tracking my food, really start tracking it, and planning what I’m going to eat BEFORE I eat it.

God, you are a God who can do ALL things, You can do anything!  Please help me to get rid of this ugly stomach, that’s all I’m asking, just this one thing….and you know what pops into my head?  Coffee.  Really God, coffee?  This doesn’t sound like it’s from the bible, I’m not sure that’s You speaking, maybe it’s just my subconscious putting weird things into my head.  Coffee isn’t supposed to be that bad for you.  I’m Swedish, coffee and cinnamon rolls are what I’ve been consuming since I was 4 yrs old.  Home isn’t home without the smell of coffee brewing.  I do put about an eighth cup of cream and a spoonful of sugar in it, and I do drink it all day long when it’s cold out.  Water is gross.  I don’t want to give up my coffee!!!!!  But I do want to get rid of this ugly ugly stomach.  But this weekend we’ll be travelling.  Okay, giving it up on Monday.  God, I’m going to need your help, and I’m going to need a new smell in my house to replace coffee smell.  Please make my house smell like home if I have to give up coffee.

By Friday, we go stir crazy in this house.  Especially with the cold weather keeping us inside, so I make my kids do the minimum of schoolwork…math, reading, and writing and we take off and spend the day somewhere exciting.  Today we went to the discovery center, you can see Prov painting, and Hope and Cara made a huge fort out of bendy tubes.
