    Wednesday 11 September

    Log accurately :)
    Stay in the green :)
    5 fruit and veg :)
    Fitbit excercise goals :)
    Jan challenge :)
    Feb challenge :)
    Mar challenge >:) I could have gone out between rain storms but my knitting took precedence
    Apr challenge :)
    May challenge :)
    Jun challenge :)
    Jul challenge :)
    Aug challenge :)
    Sep challenge :)

    It's a wet and windy start to the day. No guests so I've had a lie in and I'm planning a lazy day. I might start by unpicking the last few rows of knitting as I made a mistake last night but decided to go to bed instead of making corrections with the likelihood of further errors due to tiredness!

    Calorie Deficit

    Having a much better week this week, food wise and exercise is back on track. Did my long run yesterday so today will be shorter but more intense HIIT run. Going to go to a gentle yoga class as well, it really helps with stretching and muscle building. Journaling has been such an amazing relief for me. I hate writing by hand so I've been doing a typed journal which is way better because my handwriting is atrocious and so slow. I can type much faster and it's more stream of conciousness which I really need. I highly recommend! I just use an ongoing word doc.

    Hope everyone gets what they need out of this day!

    I talked to a friend for two hours last night and didn’t get logged in at all so I’m updating today.

    @bookmeister86 - I’m so sorry it didn’t go well. Did they tell you that they had decided to look for someone with experience? Maybe they were just seeing how you handled a task that didn’t go as planned. I hope that they decide they are willing to train and work with you anyway. If not, is there any way of taking a stress leave to give you time to focus on finding other employment? Hugs, I truly know how difficult it is.

    Local TV posted we are less than 4" from breaking the precipitation record for the ENTIRE YEAR. I have stored 52 gallon jugs of rain water from our rain barrels, and both 60+ gallon barrels are still completely full. I only watered my outdoor plants 2-3 times this entire summer. Dog and I walked in on/off sprinkles this morning, more storms are predicted tonight, and we have a flash flood warning. Some streets were flooded yesterday, and evacuations already occurred in low-lying areas. It could be worse: at least our sump pump keeps working.

Need to remember this. Net cals green 9 :mrgreen: , sodium -570, sugar green 7 :smiley: , fiber good, protein excellent, 14c water

    Yesterday was kind of a bust food wise. I didn't really eat that much, but I did eat very, very poorly. Lunch was ok, but I followed it with a candy bar. Then I had a bag of Cheetos on the way to church which became my dinner. Oh well, today is another day.

    Do any of you who go to church go to a dying church? My church is a conservative baptist church. My husband grew up in this church and when we moved back, his family still went there. There were many children and young families. As time has passed most of those families have moved on and no new families have come to take their place. Like the families that left, any new family that comes is looking for more than just a good sermon. They want fellowship and activities. Our new pastor is trying to do some of these things, but the older generation does care for it and nobody is reaching the younger families. Actually, my family is the youngest family in the church and we are mid 40's married for 21 years. The only "young-ish" families in the church are those who grew up in the church and still has family there. When I began teaching the youth, there were regularly 15 teens and 40 or so younger children on Wednesday night. Last night there were 3 teens. One was mine and the other 2 had actually already graduated and had aged out of the program. Of course, we have no young adult class for them to go to and fellowship, so we are happy to have them stay with us. Oh the other 2 are the deacons daughter and her boy friend.

    We could have 4 teens, but I convinced my husband to let our younger daughter go to another youth program on Wednesday evenings. She is a social person and a class with her parents and her older sister is not exactly appealing to her. I want her to want to go to church and hear God's word, not dread it. I told her I was going to sit through her new program one night to see what it's about and if it aligns with our beliefs. She was not thrilled about this, but I explained it was my job as her mother to make sure those I'm entrusting her to are worthy. Strange word, but it is what it is.

    Like V I desire a more active church with people my age, but my older daughter is quiet and quite content at the church we attend now. Pulling her away jut as she is opening up there seems wrong, but what do we do? Wait until she goes to college. Go to a different church?

    The other stumbling block is that we carry a fair amount of responsibility at our church. We co-run the Wednesday Night Youth program, and teach Sunday School and Sunday Night Teen Group. We run Bible School. Tim runs the sound booth and he is a trustee. They count on us to do many things, including the special events. We are good coordinators and do what needs done to get the job done right. I feel like I'm betraying the people of the church, some of which I dearly love and respect. I feel like church is a job and a burden, rather than a sanctuary. I've stepped back from things before only to get sucked back in when I realized things were going to fail if I didn't step in, because no one else would step up. Many are too old and the few under 50 are crazy busy. It wears on a person.

    I'm really not trying to complain, I'm just looking for answers. Is this just a problem in my church or is it all over? How do we revive a dying church?

    Sorry...
