    Sav,
    You know deep down you can do this. I have the utmost confidence in you as well as everyone else here does. Train hard, eat right, sleep and it'll come. Good luck chica (wait you don't need luck with your will power)

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Ronan's Birthday! April 15th Easter

    wake-4:30am--went to bed too early and had too much sleep the previous night.

    Diet today will test my will power as everyone will be over and my mother seems to think that by going out and buying tons of chocolate, she will be helping me out!
    Go figure! Thanks mom again for the temptation

    Any how, I think I'll be going to the gym as soon as it opens up this morning as it's been 3 full days of rest that my body has had! Feels so much better though
