eat up. April 23, 2008

Filed under: that hot bod — erinleete @ 7:30 pm

I’ve been thinking that I do not eat nearly enough food to be healthy. I don’t have an active job, in fact, I sit for 7 hours straight at a desk. And so, I don’t have a huge appetite. But after work, I work out and then am famished for dinner, but only eat a small portion. I’ve decided that I am going to monitor my food intake to make sure that I am eating enough calories to maintain good health. I found a very helpful blog on how to figure out how many calories you need to eat to maintain your weight, lose weight or whatever you want to do with your weight. It also gives interesting info on how easy it is to gain weight if you eat 7 Big Macs in a week.

Anyway, good health is important, so eat up.


worry worm. April 22, 2008

Filed under: heart talk — erinleete @ 8:13 pm

Some people don’t worry. Some people do. I fall into the worrier category and I am trying desperately to crawl my way out of that dark hole. The Bible commands that we should not be anxious about anything. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

It is supposed to be that easy. Somehow, by praying, our anxiety is washed away. In prayer, we realize that we are utterly dependent on the Sovereign Ruler of all, and that our worrying isn’t going to do any good. Yet, praying to the “Sovereign Ruler” doesn’t always give me the stillness I am looking for.

The verse that precedes Philippians 4:6-7 says, “The Lord is near.” The Lord is near to me when I am anxious. He isn’t just sitting high on His throne ruling over the huge cosmic happenings. He is near to me. Little me. Comforting me. His nearness quiets my fears and calms my restless heart. So when I am anxious, I need to remember verse 5 too, because it is there that I find a reason not to worry.

I just stumbled across the blog of an old friend of mine who is now married. Her blog (which I must say is a delightful read) was linked to 7 other (less delightful) blogs of her married and engaged friends. I wonder if the marrieds read each others’ blogs and then try to write their own, more adventurous, blog post. Is the blogosphere just a subconscious platform for competition between these newlywebs?

I’m a “hot tub” thinker. I like to soak in my thoughts.

What kind of thinker are you?
