Friday; And I'm Wondering...

...What the easiest way to lose 10 pounds is. I've heard you can loose it just by drinking water instead of soda. For the first time in my life, I'm a little heavier than I want to be.

...If Heath Ledger is really as good in Dark Knight as we've been hearing. We'll find out tonight.

...Why Cherry Coke and Sweet Tea have such a grip on me. Most likely the reason I need to lose 10 pounds.

...How many of the "core" kids in my ministry have ever had a spiritual conversation with one of their friends.

...When our junior high ministry will have a new intern or two. This is the first time in several years that we've been without. Intersted?

...Why CBS cancelled 'Cane' after one season. A decent show that, I think, would have picked up steam.

...If the ministry I lead has done a good job recently of loving, thanking, encouraging our volunteers. Our ministry would fail to exist if it weren't for them.

shrink those food portions and say "no whip" at The Refinery's coffee shop.

you should double the pay of your volunteers! They all are really good, especially that Mike Losey and he is so humble.

dude, you should definitely cut back on the soda. I lost a bunch of weight by cutting back to two sodas/coffees a week, eating red meat only once or twice a week, and running 2-3 times a week. I've lost about 15 pounds so far (and actually 30 pounds from my heaviest in life....when I was at Saddleback incidentally.)

One 12 oz. regular soda a day equals a pound of fat after 2-3 weeks. I'm guessing you're having more than one soda a day (every 20 cans equals a pound of fat). Cut out the regular soda, switch to diet, and you'll probably notice a difference in a month. When I was younger I didn't drink soda; went about four years without it and then kicked back into it full tilt. After just one month I put on fifteen pounds - that's when I switched to diet. : )

Kurt-
My intern of 3 years is transferring to Biola in August. How far is that from Saddleback? I know he would be interested in finding an internship while there. He's been great in our middle school department and would make a great asset. Anyway, let me know how to get him the application info...

BTW- I've lost 30 pounds in the last 3 months doing a program online (Weight Watchers). The switch to diet soda really helped me.

I dont care what people say. Cherry Coke and sweet tea are worth every pound that you may gain.
