WoW ~ Week 3

by | Mar 19, 2008 | WoW | 0 comments

It’s Wednesday already. My goals last week were to eat well (as in healthy food choices), drink more water, and exercise at least 3 times. Instead of exercising 3 times, I had pizza 3 times… Oops! Other than that not so little slip up, and the delicious mint Hershey kisses I had on St. Pat’s day, I did great and drank more water, though still not enough. Regina did so much better! Way to go Regina!!!

Even though I didn’t actually exercise, cleaning house has got to count!!! I am SO SORE!! How many calories do you think you burn as you are scrubbing tile and windows? My neighbor thought I was crazy when she looked out her window yesterday and saw me on a ladder cleaning some of our outside windows. Anyhow, I am coming to realize that it will not be possible to finish all that cleaning by tonight, but I am hoping to get a good bit more done today, if I can stand up that is.

I was sort of disappointed when I weighed this morning. Yesterday I was down a pound more than today. But nevertheless, I am still down one more pound from last week. The exciting thing is, that I am now a half of a pound less than I weighed pre-pregnancy with Snuggles! Yeah!! (I did get down a few more pounds during that first trimester with Snuggles, but that doesn’t count since it was since I was so sick.) Now I just need to lose the weight I gained during the two previous pregnancy’s. It may take awhile at this rate!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
