[ Randa Rooskie ] Unashamed

Recommended Posts

Unashamed & Abundant Life

 

Main Quest: To live life abundantly and unashamed.  Committing to living with purpose and not letting how I feel dictate what I do.

 

Goals:

 

1. Awaken – Death of the Snooze Monster

Rise by 6:00 am every day and STAY UP! Facilitate wakefulness by prepping clothes to dress in, a glass of water, keeping the clock on the other side of the room, and turning on the lights right away.

 

2. I'm a Gym!

Complete six weeks of body weight training as part of the 10 week program on my YAYOG app.

 

3. Guiltless Eating.

Romans 14:22-23 “...Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith...â€

 

The context of those verses is about bearing with people who think differently and following your conscious. I don't know what I should be fueling myself with (Gluten free? Paleo? Crazy RAW?) but I have a pretty good idea what I should NOT be eating (donuts... third helpings of anything... etc). Until I figure some things out I'm going to just make this part of the challenge be about eating without regrets. So when I pray before I meal I will make sure I reflect on the food I've set before me.

 

Life Quest:

 

1. Complete Bush Craft skills for Beginner Level Patch.

Bush Craft. http://bushcraftusa.com/ Think “boy scouts†but with more knives, fires, and make-shift stuff and fewer politically correct rules and safety guidelines. It'll make me get outdoors with my sons to enjoy God's creation.  Our afternoons should look like this: Setting stuff on fire, sharpening knives, making tarp shelters, snaring small animals (preferably the ones eating the chickens...), and generally having fun.

 

Motivation:

 

1 Cor 10:31 "Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."

 

This quest is about killing the hypocrisy I see in my life.  God bears with me through all my crazy and offers love when I don't deserve it. With Him on the throne, I'm not a slave to snacks, nor am I a victim of sloth who wastes away precious time daydreaming in bed. I am unashamed of Him, and He is unashamed of me – not because of anything I do, but because of what He has already done on my behalf.

I need to work on getting to bed earlier so as not to sabotage my goal of rising early!  Last night I was up preparing some lesson plans until almost midnight.  God still got me moving this morning and I'm grateful.

 

Somewhere around here I saw people keeping track of their goals in an organized way and thought, "Hey, I'd like to pretend to be organized!"  Here goes nothing:

Thanks, LostOne!  I'm awake early again today and meditating on 1 Cor 10:12 "Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall."  Three days in a row is great (escpecially when I haven't been making myself get up early at all), but it is a streak that could be easily broken.

 

Staying diligent, remembering my motivation is to glorify God!

Do you think if I pretend to be a ninja I can become one, too?  Because you should have seen my boys and I on the playground the other day...

So the house is a disaster.  Duct tape, paper shreds, scissors, and colors all over the floor and every horizontal surface in my living room.  When the boys saw our dinosaurs set up in flight this morning they ran with it.  You should see all the flying machines they've concocted!

 

My mother-in-law has 8 children living at home and she often quotes Proverbs 14:4 to describe her situation: "Where no oxen are, the trough is clean.  But much increase comes by the strength of an ox."  Or in our case - "Where no children are, the house is clean.  But much joy comes from the presence of children!"

 

While they were engineering I tried my hand at this "batch cooking" business that people talk about.  I had a pan of chicken breasts and one of potatoes in the oven, a roast going in the crock pot, and some eggs boiling all by eight this morning.  This is the sort of thing that frustrates me when I look back at how much time I've wasted just by allowing myself to sleep in and day dream!  Also, this "cook everything all at once" thing fits my personality - I'd much rather get something done all in one swoop than chug away at it a little at a time.  Maybe I'm lacking in persistence?  Anyway, hooray for having healthy food ready for the rest of the week!

I like to get everything done to. But mainly because I'm lazy :P But time wasting is a big thing to me, because I wasted 2 years of my life away and you just can't get time back.

 

I'm glad you and your amazing creative kids do such amazing stuff!

Hi Randa, I'm glad the batch cooking worked for you. I've been wanting to try it, but haven't figured out how yet with a shared kitchen and three little ones. I really need to get my but out of bed in the morning too. Best of luck to you on your goals.

Thanks, Feowyn!  I find that when I'm up and in the Word before my children are rise I tend to be better prepared to greet them (and the rest of my responsibilities for that day).  It's something I've known I should do for a while, but just never put the effort into it.  And it's funny, because any time I had something scheduled early I had no problem getting up and making it on time because I knew I had to be somewhere.  I'm trying to motivate myself by getting my workouts in right after I wake up.  That gives me something to look forward to.  I also set out my clothes, my kindle (I listen to audio books while working out), and water so it's all ready when I slink out of bed.

Well... I am not perfect, but I will still consider myself unashamed today even if I didn't meet my goals.  Yesterday I ate and ate and ate as an emotional reaction to stresses that really shouldn't have been that stressful.  And because of that I indulged in other things and sort of shut down.

 

Today is a new day and I'm telling myself this morning that even if I don't get all my to-dos accomplished, I can still have a successful day just by doing whatever it is I do for God's glory with joy.  Fighting for joy isn't something I've been good at, but today I'm picking up my sword and entering the fight anew.  It's worth it to choose life and peace and joy!

Remember, it's one step at a time. You can do this.  Rome wasn't built in a day and breaking down bad habits and knee-jerk reactions doesn't usually happen overnight.  It is hard, but you CAN do it.  Remember the Armor of God.  God gives us all those things, we just have to remember to put them on.  Even our faith, He gives us faith so we can have it.  So if you think your shield of faith isn't big enough to block all those fiery arrows, ask for a bigger shield :)  Remember, we are called to STAND, not to run, or to make excuses or to even charge, but to STAND our ground.  So your goal today is to stand up :)

Thanks, Cat!  I love being reminded of those big truths.  Any faith I have is from Him, not from my striving.  I'm going to be asking for a bigger shield!!

Alright, so last day of week one!  Today was the only day I didn't wake up early and I sort of planned on that since my son and I were out dancing until midnight last night.  So I have no guilt about sleeping in a little today.  I enjoyed the YAYOG exercises, but I miss my running that I was doing last challenge.  Maybe I'll try to sneak in a few this next week... if I can make the time for it!  My eating wasn't bad most days.  The one I really bombed didn't make me give up on everything else, so I'm thankful to learn from it and stay the course.  Also, this week my family and I completed three of the Bush Craft projects.  We set five types of man-made tinder on fire with a fire starter, we made our own twig fires, and learned to tie four basic knots.  All in all, not bad!

Looks like your first week went really well!  :)  Good job on keeping it real and rolling with the punches in a wise fashion. Also, I agree on the bigger shield.  I'm going to be doing the same.

Alright, so it has been a whole week since I've checked in here on my challenge thread.  I made some changes to my challenge as of Monday and I wanted to get a few days under my belt before I posted about it.  We also had a lot of people around yesterday for Thanksgiving, so I decided just to wait until Friday.

 

My main quest is the same, and I'm sticking with waking up early every morning and doing my YAYOG exercises.  I'm only going to try to accomplish one of my Bush Craft projects a week, though, instead of trying to get certified by the end of the six weeks.  And the biggest change?  Food.

 

Guiltless Eating

1 Cor 10:31 "Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."

 

I’ve been living like a slave to food and it’s making me physically, psychologically, and spiritually sick.  I can’t outrun my fork.  I’ll eat well for a day and go crazy on sweets the next, giving in to my cravings for sugar and carbs.  I will no longer be a slave to my cravings and emotions.  I’m changing how I eat to remove hypocrisy and to glorify God.

 

Romans 14:17 “for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.â€

1 Tim 4:7-8 "...train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value,

godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come."

21 Day Whole Food Manifesto

 

Stick to a strict whole food diet for 21 days. Nov 24th - Dec 15th.

No processed food, no added sugar, no grains, no legumes, and no dairy.

 

  1. Step One: Clean out the pantry and get rid of the stuff I’m not allowed to eat.

  2. Step Two: Fill the pantry with delicious, exciting, healthy food!

  3. Step Three: Thank God! Eat well. Repeat.

 

I’m not considering this a challenge.  It is a decision.  The decision has been made already, so there is no room for hemming and hawing about what I will and will not eat.

Thus, “manifesto†instead of “challenge.†

 

I found this on the Whole 30 website (where I got a lot of inspiration for this):

“It is not hard. Don’t you dare tell us this is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Birthing a baby is hard. Losing a parent is hard. Drinking your coffee black. Is. Not. Hard...  Unless you physically tripped and your face landed in a box of doughnuts, there is no “slip.†...It is always a choice, so do not phrase it as if you had an accident. Commit to the program 100% for the full 30 days. Don’t give yourself an excuse to fail before you’ve even started.â€

 

Sunday afternoon I cleared out all the stuff I’m not going to be eating for the next three weeks.  That night I went to Sams Club and stocked up on the healthy stuff.  

 

On Monday I had an appointment with my doctor to discuss my dietary changes and request some blood work so that I can have a baseline to compare my “after†results to.  I need to take this seriously, and I believe that this visit will help inspire me to stick with it 100%.

 

Tuesday I cooked large batches of meat and put some up in the freezer.  I’m stocked up on fresh veggies, steam fresh bags, some healthy fats, and fruits.

 

Thursday I committed to eating real food and stuck with it.  My plate was a massive pile of turkey, ham, and green beans.  I did not leave feeling any guilt or regret, and was pleasantly full!  I did have a few deviled eggs, because I thought I remembered them having ingredients that were on the approved list... but they didn't agree with me...  

 

Starting and ending my days in prayer is what empowers me to follow through.  They say that 80% of our health is determined by what we eat.  I know that 100% of what I can accomplish is from God.  (Apart from God, I can do nothing - John 15:5)  It has only been a few days, but I’m amazed what a difference there is in how I approach meals already.

Wow, I love how you  have set yourself up to suceed by prepping the food ahead and meeting with your Dr. Also love  starting and ending your day with prayer.

I met all my challenge goals for this week, even with Turkey Day festivities!  My second week was sort of a bust on the eating stuff, but I'm coming back strong with a much more clearly defined set of goals.  Again, 100% of what I can do is God, and 100% should be done for Him.  Right now I'm reminding myself of this verse: 1 Cor 10:12 "Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall."  It's about time for me to restock my fridge and cook up some more healthy protein so I'm ready to tackle this next week.  "He who fails to prepare, prepares to fail."

1 Tim 4:7-8 "...train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value,

godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come."
