This morning, as I enjoyed one of my favorite breakfasts to the accompaniment of Asher's soft chatter and the ticking of Adelaide's swing, I took a moment to read a little of the Bible.  I was reading in Matthew 6 about the areas of giving, prayer, and fasting.  Quite suddenly I realized something I'd never noticed before... did you know that we will be REWARDED by God for doing those things.  I guess I just never thought I'd be rewarded for doing something that I should be doing anyway.  What a loving Father!

Speaking of rewards, today I plan  on starting this dvd series:

The Brazil Butt Lift series!  I had a friend in AZ who was doing this workout and she was around 36 but had the body of a 16 year old!  Being a pear shape, when I saw her in a pair of short shorts I had to ask how she stayed so, *ahem*-- firm, and she told me about this system.  I have a Bally's membership, but there aren't any Bally's in NC so can't use it :(  So while the baby is tiny, I plan on utilizing this workout to tighten and tone my lower body.  I'm already thin, and I know I won't change my eating habits, so I'm interested to see if this workout will be effective even with me eating what I want.  We'll see if I receive my reward of passing the "pencil test"** by summer.  I'll let you know how it goes!
