A-Mon, More Giveaways, and Cute Coats!

-AccBLOGability Monday! A place where us girls can hold each other accountable in three major areas of our lives: Reading The Bible, Eating Healthy, and Exercising! You can join in on one or all three! I know all of us are encouraged when we hear your stories!

Reading the Bible - Read Matthew pretty much every day except for Fri/Sat, I get a little lazy over the weekends :). It is amazing some of things I forgot in Matt. talking about the power of prayer! I didn't remember that Jesus didn't heal in one town because the people didn't believe! And in another town he healed someone without even being by their side because the man who was talking to Jesus believed he could do it! Amazing! And just reminds me that prayer works! And is sooo powerful! God hears our prayers and wants us to have faith and believe!! Even just of a mustard seed...that teeny tiny seed grows from the smallest little thing into a huuuuge tree!

Eating Healthy - Still making 97% of meals at home and having to be very creative! :) Over the past several weeks I've made a variety of salads. Now I have trouble with salads filling me up, and I usually pair them with, sides like...cheese fries, focaccia pizza, etc., but I've stopped doing that and these have been pretty good at filling me up, at least for a couple hours. :) You can just get a cheap bag of salad, add some fresh spinach, and top it with whatever you like!

Fresh Grilled Salmon Salad with just a little berry dressing (very low in cals!): I forgot to take a pic! But it was really yummy!

Taco Salad

Salad with left over chicken just diced up and a little mix of balsamic vinegar and olive oil! Easy and yummy!

Exercise - We have taken a walk 6/7 days! I so need it and I know it is sooo good for my body!

How did you girls do this week?

-And there are More Giveaways!
Lianna has another awesome giveaway! Vera Bradley girls! Check her out for a great cause!

Southern Accent is having a super cool and super cute giveaway too! She designed these amazing shirts for breast cancer awareness! Check her out!

-Even though it's still in the 70s and 80s here! I love coats! You can always have a great classic trench in your wardrobe! And the pink one is just cute! They say bolds and fuschias are in this fall girls!

Smile!! I hope you have a great day!!!

Obviously after reading my post, you know I love trenches! I wish I had one in every color (especially green or pink). I also think those salads look delicious, but my hubby thinks salads are only an appetizer. Oh well :) I have been reading through the old testament because I have never done that before. I am almost through Numbers, and let me tell you how thankful I am God sent Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice. Keeping track of all the offerings and ceremonies sounds like a challenge. Have a good evening!

Lianna Knight said...

I want to eat dinner at your house ~ yummy!

It was freezing cold here today, but I made myself go out for my jog. Didn't enjoy the jog so much, but I felt pretty good about myself when it was over. I've lost over 20 pounds this year and really do not want to gain it back (especially with the holidays just around the corner.)

Michelle said...

Good job on all those days of walking and eating healthy.

And love those coats!

Rebecca Jo said...

Sandy Toes said...

Suzette said...

Love those coats... Yumm, all of those salads look scrumptious!

Nicole said...

Your salads look fantastic! I'm so hungry right now. And the coats are adorable!

Liz said...

I've not done too well lately on the Bible reading. And I can tell. Isnt that funny? But when my time with God gets depleted, other aspects of my life do too.

Matt and I are running 3 days a week, walking the other 2. But it's getting cold and SO hard to go!

Julie said...

It was fun to meet you today at the parade. I'm giving away a Thanksgiving book on my blog...under the post "being thankful"
