God Is So Good

No Comments

I thought I’d share a lyric about God’s goodness today. He’s been So good to me and I just wanted to tell someone. So, here’s a song I wrote with Jeff Bumgardner. I trust the words will be an encouragement. Regi

God is So Good

Regi Stone / Jeff Bumgardner

Verse 1:

Does anybody here want to stand and testify

and tell about His love

a love that carried you through

Does anybody here want to lift a hand up high

and tell about a time

when the Lord rescued you

Channel:

He’s worthy of all our praise

let’s celebrate… and give him the glory

Chorus:

God is good

Yes He is

God is good

He’s always been

He is my everything… my rescue and my strength

I’ve got tell all that He’s done for me.

God is good

Yes He is

God is SO Good

Verse 2:

So, when you’re in the middle of a situation

you say you’re holding on

but He’s there holding you

His promisees are true and He is able

And Yes He’s faithful

There’s nothing My God can’t do

Repeat Channel / Chorus

Seared Tuna with Salad

No Comments

Seared Tuna Ingredients

  • Ahi tuna* – 8-12 ounces
  • 1/2 Lemon, juiced
  • Cracked pepper
  • Salt (very little)
  • Grapeseed oil (works well at high temps)

* Choose a market that has fresh ahi tuna. 

  1. Use cracked pepper or regular ground pepper. Add as much as you’d like. Remember you can always add more when cooked.
  2. Add juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
  3. Add a little salt. The key word here is little.
  4. Spray pan with pam and then add a tablespoon of grapeseed oil. Turn heat to medium high and allow pan to get hot.
  5. Place fish in pan for 1 minute and then turn for 1 minute on the other side.The idea is to sear the fish. Put out of your mind that you have to have the fish cooked well done. It’s not the case with fresh tuna and it will be quite tasty. However, if you’d like to cook your fish longer feel free. Your meal will still be wonderful and fresh.

Salad Ingredients

  • Romaine Lettuce (bibb lettuce)
  • Red Cabbage
  • Your favorite salad veggies (carrots, squash, cucumber, tomatoes)
  • Sunflower Seeds

Dressing:

  • Olive Oil – 3 tbsp
  • Red Wine Vinegar or Balsamic Vinegar (Splash on salad)
  • Cracked Pepper (to taste)
  • Fresh Lemon Juice – 1 tsp
  • Balsamic Glaze (just a bit!)
  • Optional: Italian Seasoning, salt, basil

I use romaine lettuce already washed and bagged. Add veggies like carrots, squash, cucumber, tomatoes and if you’d like add a few sunflower seeds.

The dressing is where we usually make the biggest mistake. Don’t use prepared dressing that is loaded with unhealthy fats and sugars. Instead develop your own vinaigrette dressing. I start with a little lemon juice followed by cracked pepper and cold pressed virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar. Then I enjoy adding a bit of balsamic glaze just for a nice sweetness. Keep in mind that too much salt is not our friend so use salt sparingly. Again, feel free to use Mrs. Dash and other herbs like italian seasoning, oregano etc. Fresh basil is also a nice addition. Be creative!

Plating

This is really simple. Put the salad in the middle of the plate and slice the fish in 1/4” widths and place on top of the salad. Garnish with fruit. Feel free to use the balsamic glaze to make a design on the plate. Have fun!

Introduction to Exercise

No Comments

Exercise is one area where people often feel defeated. According to a recent study 69% of adults are overweight or obese in the U.S. Getting off the couch to get your heart pumping is imperative! Read that last sentence again and throw your excuses out the door. We wouldn’t think of leaving for work without brushing our teeth, combing our hair or getting dressed. However, we often skip one of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle: Exercise. Trust me I know it’s easier to sit on the couch with a favorite cup of coffee and talk about ‘needing’ to take a walk. But talking about it won’t change anything for the good. 

So, where do you start? Well, how about one step at a time? One reason people become defeated and quit is because they set the bar so high they can’t seem to ever measure up. It seems the favorite time to join the Y is the month of January. New Years Resolution I think we call it? Then one meeting and a couple late nights and we never get in the habit of going. Typically newbies walk around the Y wondering what the heck they are supposed to be doing. So, within a short amount of time it seems like time is wasting and we stop going. At least that’s my story. I’ve joined the Y more times than I can remember. 

Here’s the deal, before you think of running a marathon you must first develop a habit of getting up early enough to exercise 4 or 5 days a week. So, start slow. This is a journey. If you haven’t moved any faster than your walk to the dinner table for the last few months / years then start out by walking around the block. Spend 20 minutes each time you exercise to get your heart rate up. Also, talk with your doctor if you have questions or concerns about exercise and your current health situation. A couple things you need to know. It is totally okay to walk your dog. Whatever you do, do not walk your cat. That wouldn’t be cool! 

Exercise is one thing that will help raise your good cholesterol (HDL). So, let’s get to it!

By the time there’s another article about exercise you should be in a habit of walking most every day. Your heart is counting on it!
