  • I'm still asleep, but I'm here....:yawn: Was told I would get off early, but my boss thinks "early" is 10 minutes before normal...we shall see...:wink:
  • Mine is really simple. If you have a pressure cooker it cooks in about 15 minutes. If you are cooking them in a regular pot, I would add enough water to cover the beans let them cook for about 45 minutes. If you have a crock pot, I would put them on low and cook all day. Snap and wash beans. Put in pressure cooker with a…
  • Checking in from Owensboro!!
  • I have ran 2 this year so far, but my husband and I are "in training" for a 1/2 marathon. We will be running races in stages. I ran a 5k on May 11, we are running a 10k in July, a 10-miler in September, and a 1/2 marathon in October. Good luck on your races!! :drinker:

  • I believe she started a new profile. I think she's Ladyinwaiting4.
  • ^^ This is me too! I have to wear a headband when I run to help keep it out of my face! Then I have to come home and IMMEDIATELY wash my face because it will also cause me to break out. Ugh..the things we do to be healthy....:laugh:
  • I have found the best way for me to study my Bible is to be in a small group. I still read it when I'm alone, but listening to other's interpretation always helps me understand better.
  • Very nice to meet you! One of our members greatfoodlady started a faith-based weight loss group study today for anyone that wanted to join. We are reading "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst. I'm sure you could still join if you are interested! :flowerforyou:
  • I haven't seen this, and pray that it's not true! I can't imagine someone trying to take away the faith of a soldier. After everything they do for us, they should be able to pray and talk about their faith. I would imagine that they need to go to God to keep themselves together! God bless them!
  • Wow! You have talent....and great choices! :flowerforyou:
  • I think this sounds fantastic! I have been looking for a faith-based program about breaking the cycle of binge eating and craving food! I have some points on my Amazon account, so I'll see if I can get it on my Kindle. I also have a good friend that has been dealing with the same issues, and is a believer. She is on this…
  • We have K-Love too, but I prefer WayFM. I think K-Love can be a little "shiny happy people" and WayFM feels more real, but I listen to both. Love For King and Country right now!! Also listen to Hillsong, Casting Crowns, Newsboys, TobyMac, Audio A, and some harder Christian rock like Red and Skillet. Saw Skillet and TobyMac…
  • I am a believer and also believe in healing. My own daughter was healed.....HOWEVER God gave us brains and common sense for a reason. He also gave doctors the ability to learn about how our bodies work for a reason. This is child neglect...bottom line.
  • That's fantastic!! Amen!!
  • Ouchie!!! Healing prayers your way!
  • Lord, God, I pray that you lift Chris up and give him the strength to conquer this mountain! Let him be humbled by Your word and turn to You in moments of weakness. Lord, I pray that you heal Chris's body from this illness and you make him whole from the top of his head, to the bottom of his feet. Make him a mighty warrior…
  • All Pastors I know have two Earthly loves....coffee and food..lol! :laugh: I don't know your Pastor personally, but gift cards are easy and almost everyone appreciates them!
  • Hey, Everyone! My name is Crystal and I am a working mom who also goes to school while trying to raise 2 kiddos and take care of my wonderful husband of 14 years. We are all believers and love Jesus and The Church. My son, Jacob (12), does the media for the Children's ministry at our church, and my daugher, Sarah (9),…
  • Apparently, it's pretty competitive! My cousin's daughter was on a team. Pretty interesting to watch, but no, no physical activity involved..lol!
  • I don't totally agree with the Insanity workout IF they are not being supervised, which it sounds like they are. My son is in the 6th grade and they get to use Nautilus equipment 2-3 times a week in gym. I think it's fantastic because it helps him with his track/cross country running while helping the other kids who don't…
  • Had steamed broccoli and carrots with my chicken! YUMMO!! :love:
  • PROBIOTICS! Not the "modified" versions or the yogurts, but true probiotic supplements that you get at a health food store. You want at least 4 billion cultures, and more are better. I've been taking them for years, and they work! I can tell within 24 hours if I run out and can't buy them the next day.
  • Not petty at all! I agree with you 100%. There is enough porn on TV, I don't need to see it to sell me a hamburger. I find it quite gross....and so does my husband. Also the new Wheat Thins commerical with the puppet. Annoying!!! :huh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qu6d0lE1z8
  • Today I had what I call the "Elvis Special". 1/4 Cup Rolled Oats, 3/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk, 1 Tbs Creamy Peanut Butter, and 1/2 Banana. YUMMY! :happy:
  • I was 250 lbs. when I started running. Get the C25K app on your phone and just DO IT! Speed does not matter, just do the program. It will get easier and will help you lose weight. If you need a goal, sign up for a race! Also have your gait measured and get some good shoes. All this will make a difference. Good luck!! You…
  • Beautiful!! :flowerforyou:
  • I am a huge Beatles fan, so I say McCartney. Justin Beiber....just....no. :laugh:
  • I didn't read all the responses so I apologize if I'm repeating, but there is an app called "Circle of 6". If something happens to you or creeps you out you can hit the app and it will send out an instant emergency message to your top 6 contacts. It will also tell them where you are. This, along with mace or another form…
  • Rachie: I understand where you are coming from. I have spent the last month trying to find my motivation and I am having a horrible time. I've been eating terrible and seem to be forcing myself to go to the gym. I think it's just stresses and the crappy weather; however, I am feeling it in my jeans today! I'm hoping that…
  • I tried to edit my earlier post to answer the QOTD, but apparently you cannot edit a post an hour after is has been posted? That seems a little silly to me...:ohwell: QOTD: If we want to get technical, I am currently reading Accounting 1 for Business, The Book of Logic, and Basic Public Speaking..:laugh: There is no…
