We are in the first week of our eight-week super fit family challenge.  Read the program overview before getting started.

Week 1 Challenge: Each person should drink half his/her weight, in ounces, of pure water every day (e.g., if you weigh 100 pounds, drink 50 ounces of water per day). Start each day with 16 ounces of warm or room temperature water before breakfast, then spread the balance over the rest of the day.

Exercise:  Purchase a pedometer or use app on your cell phone to calculate steps. Each person’s goal is to walk 10,000 steps per day, or get as close as possible. Start out aiming for 2,000 steps if you have not been exercising regularly. 10,000 steps is about about 5 miles.

Super Fit Tracking

Get a blank notebook and start a Health Journal to keep track of progress during the challenge. Calculate and record the following for each family member:

Does God Care? Tania Joseph's Testimony

Written by Metro Blogger.

DoesGodCare1920 Jan142017

On October 24, 2015, Tania Joseph was involved in a near-fatal accident.  She suffered severe trauma to her brain.  On October 28, she coded.  Metro prayed and prayed and prayed some more.  Doctors were able to revive her, and she was transferred to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where she was to spend several of the next months of her life.  There was lots of doubt about whether she would ever fully recover, what state her brain would be in if she recovered, whether she would ever resume anything close to a normal life.  The situation was heartrending for her husband, two young daughters, immediate family and all of her extended family and friends.  But through the doubt, prayers continued to be sent up on her behalf

Today, Tania Joseph is driving again on Maryland roads.  Listen to her tell her remarkable story at 5:00 p.m. on January 14.
