On this day of your life, Anna, I believe God wants you to know…

…that there is a family reunion awaiting you, and you will be more overjoyed than you can now begin to imagine.


On the day you leave your body — what I like to call your Continuation Day — you will be greeted by everyone you have ever loved in any way for any reason…and, standing in front of the group, every person who has been so very dear to you.  It will be a grand and glorious reunion, with joy and laughter and pure wonderment filling every heart and soul!


This has also been experienced by everyone who has ever left here — all those who have gone before you — of course.  So do not grieve for them. They are so very happy!  I’m not sure why you were meant to hear this on this particular day…but I bet you are…


I hope this is true, could do with a break……please :)

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know…

…that great and unexpected good is coming to you now.


You’ve been waiting for a shift in energy, and that shift

has occurred. All you have to do now is get ready to receive

your new-found good. Be on the lookout. It may come

at a time and in a way that you could not have

anticipated or imagined.

I’m quite enjoying salads………….

Not really sure the last time I went on a something + salad diet!!  I normally do steamed veg or roast veg.  But I’m finding salads quite interesting at the moment.  Have added things like beetroot, strawberries, walnuts, coleslaw, spring onion.  Will see if i can discover anything else 🙂

Here is my salad tonight:  lemon sole dusted with flour = 225 calories + salad 🙂

oh, and some tartare sauce on the side 😉

1000 calorie per day!

Omelette – onion, tomato, red pepper, spinach, 2 eggs, 30g cheese, rocket garnish/side – Yummy!


Salmon Salad – salmon fillet, rocket, spinach, tomotoes, cucumber, strawberries, bell pepper – Mmmmmm!


Fab lolly – 90 Calories! Just for my sweet tooth at the end of the day – keeps me happy 🙂


Green/black Tea

Water/Soda water with lime juice

Voilla! around 1000 calories 🙂

More fat burning from HIIT by Rusty!

The Takeaway from all of this “VO2 Max” Talk

The thing you can take away from all of this technical jargon is to simply do some longer intervals mixed in with your shorter intense HIIT workouts. I would recommend possibly doing the longer intervals early in the week and shorten the duration but increase the intensity as you get closer to the weekend. This way you can get be sure to improve your VO2 Max with the longer intervals and get the HGH boosting effects of shorter more intense intervals. Both types of intervals will burn calories, so you really can’t lose using this strategy.

Here’s One Way of Setting that Up

Monday: 4 minutes of running alternated with 3 minutes of walking (do this 4-5 times…around 30 minutes)
Tuesday: 2 minutes of running followed by 2 minutes of walking (do this 7-8 times…around 30 minutes)
Wednesday: off
Thursday: 1 minute of running followed by 1 minute of walking (done for 15 minutes followed by 15 minutes of steady state cardio)
Friday: 30 seconds of running followed by 30 seconds of walking (done for 10 minutes followed by 20 minutes of steady state cardio)
Saturday: off
Sunday: off

Note: The term “running” is used loosely. You can do the equivalent on a bicycle, elliptical, stepmill, jump rope, body weight circuit, etc.

Who needs security when there is joy!!

On this day of your life, Anna, I believe God wants you to know…

…that safety is not the thing you should look for in the

future. Joy is what you should look for.


Security and joy may not come in the same package.

They can…but they also cannot.  There is no



If your primary concern is a guarantee of security,

you may never experience the truest joys of life.

This is not a suggestion that you become reckless,

but it is an invitation to at least become daring.

Never give up!

On this day of your life, Anna, I believe God wants you to know…

…that there is a solution. There is. But you must keep

going to find it. You cannot stop, you cannot give up.


This is about more than just patience. This is about

more than just persistence. This is about absolute

knowing that God is on your side.


When you know this, you never give up…and the

sense of struggle goes away. You simply keep moving

forward, knowing that in the end all will work out.

And that along the way there will be great insights

and wonderful remembering.
