“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

Dark Chocolate Health Benefits for Easter

lent

Jim Watkins – talented author and threat to society, or at least chocolate rabbits- has done some thorough, delicious, and humorous research into the health benefits of dark chocolate. Dark chocolate improves blood flow, sex, mood (duh!), and smarts and helps fight bad cholesterol and diabetes. Pass the chocolate, please.

 

Only one week left in March Ab-ness! Let’s finish strong! Total for this week: 21 minutes.

 

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!” John 12:13

Spousal Weight Loss

A new study found that when spouse A loses weight, spouse B often does too, even if spouse B isn’t participating in any particular diet or program. The opposite is also often true: as spouse A gains weight, so does spouse B. What’s that phrase? “What’s yours is mine, especially if it’s chocolate”.

Spouses rub off on each other and exercise and diet habits are no exception. In honor of this new study, here’s a link to How to Force Your Spouse to Lose Weight. Even if your spouse doesn’t want to join you, keep up the good work of getting healthy. You’re influencing him weather he realizes it or not.

 

MARCH AB-NESS update: 21 minutes of ab exercises this week. On track and feeling good!

 

As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. James 5:11a

A Scale Joke

A lady noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale, sucking in his stomach.

Thinking he was trying to weigh less with this maneuver, she commented, “I don’t think that’s going to help.”

“Sure it does,” he said. “It’s the only way I can see the numbers.”

I WILL Act Like a Child (A Holiday Manifesto)

img_4132This holiday season, I vow to act like a child.

I will not sit still. I will get up or get out and move every day. I will skip to the mailbox, I will dance in the kitchen, I will walk around the block, I will jump up and down in anticipation. I will do it because it makes me feel good, not because I have to.

I will be a picky eater. If I don’t love it, I won’t finish it. I will not waste stomach capacity on mediocre food. The only exception is if the cook is watching me. If the cook is watching, I will make an interesting comment to draw attention to my eating their dish—“Mmm, is that nutmeg in these mashed potatoes?”—and then push the remaining food to the edges of my plate and cover it with a napkin. If I love a food I will savor it, licking my fingers (discreetly) and ignoring the world around me until it’s gone.

I will ask “why?” I will listen to the Christmas story at church and to carols on the radio and I will ask “Why? Why? Why?” until the only answers left are “Because God loves us so much, he came down and saved us himself” and “I don’t know, He just does.”

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
