iPhones and New Year Resolutions

I could be like so many others make new resolutions for the year. Actually I am as far as my my goals, but I'm looking at this as more as ways to change my life, not just the year ahead. I want permanent changes.

One thing I did today was download an app for my iPhone called My Fitness Pal. This handy little app lets me keep track of everything and even helps me make small goals out of my larger goal. I didn't think I'd like something like this, but it's already keeping me accountable and aware of what I'm eating throughout the day.

I know weight loss is always a top priority for so many at the beginning of the year, but I'm digging my feet in to do this for my long term health. I'm tired of feeling bad and not liking how I look.

Now along with this app, I'm using another iPhone app. Prayer cards by Beth Moore. Now this is a cool little app. She had several categories you can by the "prayer cards" for— 99 cents. It's worth it. This gives you specific Scripture to pray for many topics. The best part is that it's totally connected to, which is the same creator of the Bible app I have as well. This takes you to the original Scripture the prayer is based upon and even gives you a list of translations to use.

So, these are my tools to accomplish this goal, to lose weight and change how I look at food and deal with it. I love using the practical mixed with prayer! I will be victorious. LOL!

I'll keep you posted! So stay tuned. Got some great book giveaways coming as well. No room on the bookshelves so these books have got to go!

Would love to hear more about Beth Moore's prayer cards. Lead a BM Bible study on Esther and could perhaps give these cards to my ladies.

Hi Sammantha!
Yes, I'm still using them both and loving them! I'm slowly losing the weight which is good since I put it on slowly. I want to keep it off.

I tried to leave a comment on your blog but for some reason it wouldn't let me. Please know you're in my prayers. I'm sorry you and your family had a rough year. Saw the S.U.M. button on your blog—let us know how we can be prayed for you! Hugs!
