On the lowcarb front:
My stats for today:
Type: treadmill
Route: manual settings
Time: 30 minutes
Average heart rate: 120
Maximum heart rate: 131
Calories burned: 222
I’m up .6 pounds from last Saturday

In a few minutes I am heading for the treadmill. I really should go outside because it is beautiful, but there is some reading I want to do. I met my 3 daily goals yesterday: drinking my water, logging my food, and exercising. The scale was up today, but that's okay. I am only concentrating on meeting my daily goals. I went back to one of the threads at lowcarb friends that deals with the same kinds of issues that I have. I never should have left the thread in the first place, but no matter, I'm back there now. Later . . .

Word of the day:
Matthew 25:14-30
Jesus told his disciples this parable, "For it is as if a man, going on a journey, summoned his slaves and entrusted his property to them; to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. The one who had received the five talents went off at once and traded with them, and made five more talents. In the same way, the one who had the two talents made two more talents. But the one who had received the one talent went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. After a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them. Then the one who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five more talents, saying, 'Master, you handed over to me five talents; see, I have made five more talents.' His master said to him, 'Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.' And the one with the two talents also came forward, saying, 'Master, you handed over to me two talents; see, I have made two more talents.' His master said to him, 'Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.' Then the one who had received the one talent also came forward, saying, 'Master, I knew that you were a harsh man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed; so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.' But his master replied, 'You wicked and lazy slave! You knew, did you, that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I did not scatter? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to the one with the ten talents.'

Thoughts from the cornfield:
How well do we use the gifts that God has given us? And how often do we let fear keep us from being all that we can be. Laziness is part of it, but so is fear. Fear of failure, fear of what others will think of us. Feh. I've had enought of that in my life. For too many years I let what others think rule my life. I let it cripple me. No more. It took me over 5 decades to "get it", but better late than never.


God bless the troops!
