And these are the others I found!

1. Group 1 Crew- Please don't let me go
2. Group 1 Crew- Keys to the Kingdom
3. Grits-.FLy Away
4.Trip Lee ft. Lecrae- Who He is
5.Trip Lee ft. Jai- Hero
6.21:03- you
7.Lecrae- Identifiy

With the help of my new tunes hopefully I can make it through my run because I realyl just want to grab a glass of wine and watch the bachelor!

I hope you like the new songs I added. Let me know what you think and tell me some of your songs that are great for a workout.

3 Things......

I need to remember a few things and thought I would share

        Far to often I find myself saying, " when I loose weight i will..or when I make more money i will., when i get more time...." I know we all say it! If I can just remember there is no better time than NOW, I think I may get more accomplished.

         "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline." 2 Timothy 1:2. HE has equipped us with everything we need to live the life He has planned for us. I certainly will be the first to admit I need to stop fighting with the good Lord and do my part because I KNOW He certainly is doing his. Often I find myself saying "OK God! I'm waiting, I'm here! Please do something! LIKE NOW! When really, I think He is the one waiting on me.

This ones a doozy. Yikes! I put my faith in many more things than I do in myself. Often I doubt myself in many many areas of life. If you've never spent much time in the Book of James, I recommend glancing through it. It covers many different issues, but faith is a common theme. I realized today that If the creator of everything believes in you...Why would you not believe in yourself? WOW! That's some powerful stuff right there.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.I hope the start of your week is fantastic and thanks for stopping by!

Looks can be deceiving

If you know me at all, you know trying new things has never been on my to do list. What can i say? I'm a creature of habit and go with what I know. It's safe and gives me warm and fuzzies. It also.... has got me nowhere. SO I have decided to broaden my horizons no matter what that may be.  I've been under the weather for a week now and chalk full of antibiotics, steroids, cough syrup, cough drops and soup. You could not pay me to eat ANOTHER bowl of soup. So, in an effort, to continue my weight loss and expand my palate I thought I'd share this questionable  BUT NEW cuisine.

Spring rolls, seaweed salad and cucumbers
 That's right! I said SEAWEED SALAD. It's quite the opposite of the mushy, gritty, green algae, you find at the bottom of pond water, that I imagined. It's crunchy and sweet and full of dreamy goodness. I think it's simply de-lish! So from one hungry girl to another...Give it a try! Just remember looks can be deceiving.

Now then, I am working on a hodge podge of exciting things for my new blog ie..figuring out a theme, what I want to post on certain days, what I want my site to actually look like...etc. With that being said, please don't panic and think I've thrown back to much cough syrup when you see my blog tweaking out and changing a lot. I'm only trying to figure this all out as i go.

Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!

Love & Blessings
