Biggest Loser Challenge- Week 5

I am not at home, so this week's post will be short. We just got in to my in-laws from our weekend camping trip in the Quartz Mountains near Altus, Oklahoma (pictures to come)!!!
So let's cut to it:
Your Name
Did you meet your goal last week?
Weight loss for the week
Goal for next week
Prayer Request
My turn:
No, I didn't meet my goal of working out 5 hours because of our camping trip. I only got in 4 hours and 15 minutes =(
Weight loss...(update to come)
Goal for next week...5 hours of working out with 90 minutes of strength training.
I am asking for prayer for Divine joy, renewed energy, & direction/confidence in the next steps God wants me to take. I need God's strength to walk by faith and not by sight. I need prayer for God to help me carve out time this week to just be STILL and know that HE IS GOD!!!
Verse for the week:
Romans 1:23, 25
"They traded the glory of God who lives forever for the worship of idols made to look like earthly people, birds, animals, and snakes...They worshiped and served what had been created instead of the God who created those things."
I had to read that a few times this weekend. I was convicted. I don't want to 'trade-in' God's glory for the 'perfect figure'. My body is God's temple - it needs to be healthy, not perfect. I don't want this quest for the 'ideal' body to become my focus. It is a thin line...I don't want to cross it!
Max Lucado says, "What makes us special is not our body but the signature of God on our lives. We are his works of art (Eph 2:10)...We are significant, not because of what we do, but because of WHOSE we are."
Be encouraged this week by the one who created you. See you back here next Monday!!!
Your turn:
(my recipes are at home, so feel free to share your favorite recipe with us!!!)

So glad you had a great trip besides the storm, wished Kyle could have gotten off and we would have went and then you could have got yourself into our trailer for shelter. LOL

Goal this week: workout 4 days
didnt meet this goal last week.

Prayer request: My son Gerry he is 17 and thinks he knows it all. He is leaving on a summer moving crew in a day or two but I want him to want to be closer to God.

I didn't meet my goal last week, it was a crazy week.

Prayer request is for my grandfather to quit suffering and go peacefully.

Cant wait for you to get back!! Hope you had a great time though.

Gained 1 lb- total weight loss 1lb

Truth: Before the Biggest Loser contest started i reached my weight loss goal of losing 12 lbs. I would like to lose a little more but i cant seem to get motivated because i AM where i set out to be in the first place. Am i making any sense?

Goal for the week: To make healthy choices all around!

I did not meet my goal last excuses!
My goal: walk--4 miles daily weight lifting workout --4 time this week!!
Weight loss 9.8 lbs

Prayer request: All 3 of my kids are at various camps. My prayer is that they will get the most from the camps and they will see the amzingness of God and that I can use this time not focused on missing them, but focused on God's plan for me and my children!

Oh goodness...why am I starting to dread these Monday check-ins!! I am not reaching my goals and I gained 1 1/2 pounds!! The blog is helping to keep me focused but I surely hope next week I will have a more positive report.

Sure hope you have a good vacation - and will certainly be remembering your prayer request! Requests for me - my children..both have struggles at this stage of their lives and I am just not able to "fix things" in that Mommy way I love to do! But I CAN pray!!

Thanks for your commitment to this challenge!

Yes, my goal was to see my eating and health from God's perspective, and I do believe he is showing me some things.
Goal: work out 4 days and apply what I am learning.
Prayer Request: My college son needs a good godly friend.
Weightloss: Stayed the same again. Getting a little(lot) discouraged, but I have got to get with the exercising. Jackie

Quartz Mountain again! Y'all must like the place. That's great. Now you need to get in the car and come to Lake Whitney. We are going to have fun. The talent show is going to be good this year, along with bingo and ring toss. As far as I know everyone will be there except y'all. Gonna have a Hey-O time....

I lost NOTHING again. Okay, I haven't been working that hard at it, I fell off the fears...I am back on there. I am determined to have a good week~ eating right and working out!!!!

My prayer request is for a family here in Levelland~ the Johnson family. Their son, Justin, was found dead yesterday (cause yet to be determined). He and Chance have been friends thier entire life. He was only 28. Prayers, lots of prayers.

I have had a hard time getting your blog to load here at home...but this morning it worked! (I can't get on blogs at work...)

I lost 3 lbs last week - and I've checked the last two days just to be sure! I have really, really been trying with the water, and it seems to be paying off. That, and we've been super busy - no time to do our usual sitting in front of the tv snacking! My goal is to keep up with the water and to stay away from all of the sweets that are around school during this last week.
