Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
I have recently been introduced to the FitBit. It was a gift and it is super fun!
You all know I am a fitness/health guru. I am constantly trying to find the best workouts, chiseling muscle routines, healthy eating plans, and diets. Through all of this I have become a healthier person. I no longer think that I will be prettier if I am a size negative zero. I really only thought like that for a year a few years ago. I now know that I have a 10-15 pound range and both ends are very healthy. One end may be more muscle and one more thin, but both are ok. I know what I need to do to be my healthiest, I know when I don’t do that, accept it and start new the next day. I have plans on using my interest in these areas to become a personal trainer.
Enough of that ramble.
Even though I have come to this realization for me, I also know I need accountability so I don’t go crazy with laziness or gluttony. 😉 The FitBit is great for that. It keeps track of everything! I can track my calories burned and eaten, how much sleep I get and its quality, my activities and how many steps I take in a day. I am currently around 13,000 steps a day. 🙂 You can also link up with friends and have a healthy health competition.
I highly recommend this for EVERYONE. Such a great gift and tool and toy. 🙂

I had about 15 minutes to sit down during the day today. I sat down with my 2 hour late lunch, put on the tv to not think for a couple minutes, and…there is a Special News Report. And it was not one that made me enjoy sitting down. I took it as a sign that I was not yet supposed to have a break in the day.
A leader of a nation should not directly separate the country. Of course we all have different views. He may be the leader, but his opinion does not reflect the entire country. I give credit to the Republican leaders who are standing up for those they represent. The plan on the table is certainly not one in which the whole country agrees. It is not a plan that is healthy for the country as a whole and for a leader to point fingers at one side because they do not agree with him is appalling. Leaders are supposed to bring their people together, not tear them apart. A confident leader would be able to lead by example, be okay with people disagreeing with him and make a plan to join forces instead of putting the blame on everyone but himself. It is interesting, the book I just finished reading spoke of how leaders can rule with words. They can make people afraid of things they should not fear, make them bold when they should be cautious, and make them feel guilty for not following their lead. Words are powerful things…they can build up…they can destroy.
We all have the capability to discern these words I pray they are pondered before they are followed blindly.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
