Re: Hey Libby2....to answer your questions....
If its working for you and you feel good on it - yippee!! What works for me (when I follow it!) would be odd by most standards!
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 Remember that in a race everyone runs, but
only one person gets the prize. You also must run in such a way that you
will win.  All athletes practice strict self-control. They do it to win a
prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.  So I run
straight to the goal with purpose in every step. I am not like a boxer who
misses his punches.  I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to
do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself
might be disqualified.
